Judging by the App Store's record, I wouldn't completely endorse developers trying out new, exotic controls schemes for their games in the likes of success - people [usually] won't like change. However, in the case of CM Games' newest release, Slingshot Racing ($0.99), they've mastered a new control scheme and have applied it to the racing genre in the form of an irresistible, universal package.
The next generation iPhone could use components from chipmaker Qualcomm as the two companies are reported to be in talks for a future deal, fueling rumors of a possible 2010 iPhone arrangement that have surfaced in recent weeks. Citing "market sources," DigiTimes reported Monday that Qualcomm is in talks with Apple "for interest in future cooperation." The report said that Qualcomm is concerned about its future as popular smartphones, including the iPhone, do not utilize its 3G handset chips. Fierce competition has allegedly "pressured" the chip maker into looking to make a deal with Apple.
Additional evidence pointing to a Verizon Wireless iPhone appears to have surfaced on Thursday, as CDMA inventor Qualcomm announced official plans to release new dual-carrier chips that would enable future phones to work on both its own CDMA/EVDO carrier partners such as Verizon and Sprint, as well as rival 3GPP carriers using UMTS/HSPA+ technologies such as AT&T and T-Mobile. The new chips also provide future support for LTE, the next generation 3GPP standard that most carriers plan to begin testing for deployment globally over the next few years. However, an analyst has cited sources within Qualcomm in stating that although the company would like to have a dual-mode handset ready in 2010, that would likely be impossible.
