My take on the iPhone 4

iPhone Antenna

Well I have managed my first review in a very long time here on Kainzy.org. It’s obviously been long overdue but with real life work commitments, it is so hard to spare the free time. Anyway, I have written a short ‘review’ if you will on Apple’s latest iPhone. The device is already a heavily controversial one, but at the same time it is a device  feature packed with great hardware. As always, you can find it in the reviews section.

WordPress 3.0 Arrives

It has taken 218 people to contribute to the new release of WordPress 3.0 codename ‘Thelonious’ and it looks stunning, especially with it’s new Twenty Theme, which has a ton of feature, which you can find listed Here. I just have to update this blog now… I must admit to being somewhat SCARED!

WWDC Is Upon Us

It’s been so long since I last wrote a post on this blog that I had actually forgotten my blog login details!

Enough of my long abscence from this blog anyway. I will be posting a lot more frequently here as the mobile wars I predicted earlier hots up this week.

Apple’s WWDC (World Wide Developers  Conference) begins tommorow in San Francisco,  Moscone West for three days. Of course the one highlight of WWDC every year is the most talked about mobile device since it’s first launch in 2007 – the iPhone. Love it, or hate it you just cannot ignore the massive impact the device had on the mobile world. Anyone denying this is pretty much fooling themselves to be honest.

I have previously stated that 2010 will be all about the mobile operating systems such as Mobile OSX found on the iPhone,  Google’s Android as well as Microsoft’s Windows Mobile 7 arriving towards the end of the year. My predictions of Apple falling behind couldn’t have been more accurate. The Android OS is gaining ground at a colossal pace, but at the same time OS fragmentation is occuring as certain Android apps work with the latest version of Android and not earlier versions.

The Apple iPad Lands

So Apple’s Conference just ended with announcement of the much fabled Apple Tablet, named the iPad. I’ll keep this short and sweet as I hadn’t set my expectations high unlike most people out there. I knew exactly what I expected of the device but have been surprised by a few things. Firstly I’m a major gadget geek, but instead of looking at the usability of devices I tend to be more interested in the hardware side of things, the internal components. That said, these was my predicted specs for the tablet prior to it’s announcement.

Two Tablet models:

Tablet 1:

  • 10″ LED Backlit IPS Panel Widescreen feat a touch display and a resolution of 1024 x 768
  • 3GS style Oleophobic coating to be present on the screen

  • Bluetooth 2.1 with EDR Tech
  • Assisted GPS (same as iPhone 3G/3Gs)
  • 16, 32GB storage ability
  • Dual Cortex A9 Tegra 2 SoC
  • 2x USB ports
  • Twin speakers and a Microphone
  • 3.5″ Headphone connector
  • Accelerometer
  • Runs Mobile OSX (the same OS that is present on the iPhone’s and iPod Touch)

Tablet 2: All of the above with the following additions.

  • 10″ OLED Widescreen display featuring the same details as Tablet 1.
