For years, I’ve been jumping back and forth between Sparrow for iPhone and the native Mail application as I have never felt completely comfortable with either application due to each having their own limits. Sparrow doesn’t allow me to view emails one after another, and Mail isn’t as Gmail friendly
The overall availability of iPhone mail clients hasn't come short, in terms of numbers. With this year's notable release of Sparrow for Gmail, the total number of mail apps, both third-party and official, can be a bit overwhelming for iPhone users. Mailbox, announced two days ago, is an application set for launch next year that aims to bring a totally revamped experience iPhone owners who are also mutual users of Gmail's email services.
Although Gmail continues to be the reigning champion in the field of email services, Yahoo still boasts a total of over 110 million people that are using the services that it offers. For those who are dedicated users of the service, an augmentation was announced earlier today making the whole experience both more intuitive and robust with the launch of an all-new desktop client as well as a brand new mail app for iOS.
Now that clever people have had time to poke around inside the iPad's SDK (which was released last week), Engadget is reporting that one clever tipster has found evidence of a new device. Buried within the SDK's frameworks, their tipster found what they claim is an internal model number for a new iPhone. Additionally, the iPhone OS 3.1.3 Software Update which was released today has references to model number N80, which Engadget has been told is the next iPod touch.
While these discoveries are definitely of interest, it's no surprise that Apple is working on next-gen versions of the iPhone and iPod touch. Rumors of the next-gen iPhone have been floating around since November of last year, and we do expect to see something this summer.
