Over the years, the market for iPhone cases has augmented to appeal to a wide variety of customers. There's no doubt that anything you need - whether it be hardcore protection, glamorous looks, or a combination of both - will be available somewhere online or in-store. Spigen SGP's lineup of cases for the iPhone 5 boasts a lot of promise and creativity. Today we'll be taking a look at the company's Ultra Thin Air case for the iPhone 5.
I cannot say that I haven’t had those moments when I really want to watch a movie hands-free. It has happened before, and most recently happened in the plane last week. I was really craving a movie, but I, being me, had forgot to bring one of my many stands
Rogers Wireless announced today that they are extending their promotional offering of free tethering included with plans that include at least 1GB of monthly data for devices that are capable of tethering to a computer to share it's data connection, including the iPhone. The deal was set to expire at the end of this year, but has now been extended to end May 3rd, 2010.
One of BGR's "ninjas" has captured pictures of what they describe as Fido's "entire roadmap for the rest of 2009". The pictures include, among other things, information on a 4GB iPhone 3G with quad-band EDGE, tri-band HSDPA, a 2-megapixel camera and (drumroll please) iChat video calling. Picture after the break.
Now is a bad time to be one of the sales staff, assistant managers, and director-level employees within Canadian wireless carriers Rogers Wireless and Fido. Despite a 30% increase in sales, the Rogers finance department recently made the decision to cut sales commissions given to the people who were partly responsible for that increase by as much as 50%.
Canadian iPhone carriers Rogers and Fido have announced new plans for the iPhone 3G, bringing to an end their offering of 6GB for $30 CAD. It is instead being replaced with two new subscription plans for $60 and $75 CAD per month.
It appears that Rogers Wireless may have finally heard the complaints of its thousands of potential customers. Earlier today Rogers and sub-brand Fido announced that they will be offering a limited-time promotional plan for the iPhone 3G. Customers that sign up before the end of August will be eligible to sign up for a $30 monthly data plan that includes a whole 6GB of data per month when purchased with a voice plan.
It looks like Apple is taking this anti-Rogers thing more seriously than we thought. According to AppleInsider, Apple has decided that, due to the crappy and hugely overpriced data plans being offered by Rogers Wireless and Fido for iPhone 3G customers in Canada, and the resulting overwhelming negative public response toward them, Apple will not be selling the iPhone 3G in any of their Canadian stores. The news came during a private conference call Monday evening from Apple representatives.
Many iPhone 3G-hopefuls and residents of Canada yesterday seemed to be less than satisfied with the announcements from Rogers and Fido. Controversially, none of the four plans for the device they announced came with unlimited data, and many of them decided to make their dissatisfaction publicly known. In response to the public outcry, Rogers has felt the need to defend their data plans.
So, Rogers will be brining the iPhone 3G to Canada. And if you live up there, that's a good thing. Still, formal pricing had yet to be announced until today. Update: Fido announced their price plans as well, which are identical to the ones announced by Rogers Wireless.
