It is already rumored many times that iPhone 5 would be released in the last quarter of this year. Now the rumor is being proved once again even though Apple didn’t make any official announcements.
Verizon Wireless has blacked out vacation requests for the period covering September 21 to September 30. Normally they do it during busy days. Normally these kind of blacked out holidays occurs during Christmas season or Black Friday. But end of September?? So the best speculation is that iPhone 5 will be released somewhere during end of September.
If things are going fine as expected for Apple, it is said that they’d sell 250 Million devices around the world.

All these days Windows Phone Developers from Sri Lanka had no way of submitting apps directly to the Windows Appstore. We have to go through third party app companies such as Yalla Apps to resolve this issue.
But from today Microsoft is accepting developers directly from Sri Lanka to submit apps. Good news for Windows Phone developers in Sri Lanka.
Annual fee of $99 will be deducted from your account so make sure you make hell of an application to recover the money u put in . You can join the program here. I hope Google will follow the paths of Microsoft and will allow developers to sell applications from Sri Lanka.
Good Luck Windows Phone Devs in Lanka.
As you know IOS 6 developer preview is being released incrementally for developers only. IOS6 is getting closer to the release date. If you are a developer then you can easily update the device OS by going Settings > General > Software Update.
If you are a Jail broke iPhone user then you got to wait for a while as there won’t be any updates for Jail broken phones until the public release is made available.
Most of the developers noticing something with the latest iOS6 beta 4 update. Yep, YouTube app is no longer available in the home screen of the iPhone. It is removed from the default app section. As we know already Google Maps is removed and being replaced by Apple’s own tailor made maps application.
Still users will be able to download the YouTube app from iTunes. But that’s kind of hurts rite?? If you are still disappointed then you can make a shortcut on the desktop http://m.youtube.com
As the battle with the Android gets nastier, Apple intends to cut off the relations and dependencies on Google. I hope next is Google search. Will they ever remove Google search and replace it with Bing or Yahoo?? Only time will answer the question.
Most of the apple fan boys strongly believe in what apple does is always right. When others hit on Apple’s profit margin, more than Steve Jobs’s ghost they’ll be worried.
When Samsung and Google started to smash into the smart phone market, the only remark they made was “Whats wrong with Google, now they complicate the market by providing new Mobile OS”. For god sake if Google was not venturing into Phone OS warfare, iPhone users won’t be getting half of what they are getting right now.
Apple is famous for leaving behind the core features and add some features such as Siri to make it look nice. You guys remember how long it took Apple to develop a basic 3G video calling feature which was available even on all time crappy Nokia phones.
I’m sure many Apple fan boys were annoyed by the products released at Google I/O 2012. Starting from Jelly bean OS, Nexus 7 Tablet and Nexus Q. Obviously Jelly bean is cooler than current iOS and it has many awesome features such as offline voice typing.
Soon Apple will also implement it. Mark my word and Apple will promote it as if they’ve done something remarkable. I was told iOS 5.0 already have it. My bad.
Nexus 7 is not an iPad killer. For god sake, it will be a competitor for Amazon Kindle Fire. Nexus Q might hurt the Apple TV’s market. But if you compare the price tag Apple has the advantage. Nexus Q priced at $299 and Apple TV priced at $100. But again Nexus Q has cool features such as allowing multiple parties to interact with the device. For example you can control the Nexus Q using your Android Mobile later you can switch off it using Android Tablet. Another cool example for allowing multiple party is, say for example you and your friend watching a movie together but you couldn’t complete it. Your friend can go home and continue the movie from where you guys stopped in his Nexus Q machine. How cool is it?
There is nothing wrong with Apple. They did change the face of smart phones that we are using today and they shaped up the technology in our day to day life, but everyone else had their share in the process too, including Microsoft, Google etc. I do have respect for Apple and their innovative cool designs and products. But that doesn’t mean that I’ll worship only Apple and think other products are inferior.
If Apple does it, it’s innovative. Others innovate something cool, then unnecessary feature. Ohh my dear Apple fan boys go get a life!!!!
Sri Lankans are very unlucky fellows when it comes to iPhone. Apple has announced about a new version of their iPhone OS which will enable you to send MMS and it’ll also allow you to perform copy and paste functionality.
Meanwhile Apple has released a new model of iPhone (known as iPhone 3GS). This model got much more features such as built-in video camera etc.
You can buy iPhone with an operator contract for about $99 and iPhone 3Gs for $199. Unfortunately iPhone is not available in Sri Lanka and none of the operators are supporting it.
If you see someone with a iPhone, he is either using a iPhone like fake phone or illegally bought iPhone.
Sometime back Dialog came up with the iPhone deal and everyone was talking about it. Later they dropped the plan and the page also went missing from their site. If we can get one of our local operators to support iPhone we can get iPhone with a connection for about 11, 000 LKR, which is far way cheaper than all Nokia smart phones.
Hope to see iPhone in Sri Lankan market soon.
Are you ready for the NEXT GENERATION OF IPOD SHUFFLE?????? Yeah, finally Apple has announced new type of iPod shuffle. Most interesting feature of this product is in-built voice over feature. It’s been a problem for iPod shuffle users to check out the song title, artists as they don’t have display panel. Unlike iPod Nano, shuffle had no display panel. You can use this voice over feature to listen song titles, artist names etc.
It has controls near the ear bud. You can increase volume, browse track, create play lists using this handy control.
Above all you can also create play lists as per your interest. New iPod shuffle is half a size of previous iPod shuffle but it can hold up to 1000 songs as it has 4GB built in memory.
Check out whole set of dazzling features of iPod Shuffle by yourself
As usual, it’ll take time to reach Sri Lankan market or else we need to risk by going eBay. Apple is not shipping their products to Sri Lanka, probably legal issues.
I just can’t believe this, Dialog has introduced Iphone 3G to Sri Lankan market. I think Dialog has started its offensive against Airtel.
Unit price is 89,000 LKR with one year warranty. If you can’t pay the money at a time, you can go for easy payment scheme. It’ll be around 7,416 LKR per month.
Dialog also offers iPhone Finger Tips Guide as PDF which you can download from dialog.lk.
