Maybe it is better that the Canadian launch of the iPhone 4 has been delayed. It looks like early adopters in the United States are having signal problems with their devices. Instead of me explaining the problem to you, take a look at the video below.
We are two weeks into the FIFA World Cup and Rogers has put the finishing touches on an app designed for the Apple iPad Wi-Fi + 3G. The FIFA World Cup Live app allows users to stream the remaining games on their iPad free of charge.
According to the RedBoard post, the app is free to download and all data consumed by the application will NOT come out of your monthly data bucket. The only catch I can see is that your iPad must be registered on the Rogers network and activated on a 30 day plan.
Download the app from the iTunes and start watching the games today.
It looks like Apple Canada has removed the “Coming in July” banner on the device from the online store. This change could mean one of two things: either the July launch has been fast-tracked or it has been pushed back.
The Canadian carriers have always said that the iPhone was launching in the “coming week”, if the launch was planned for July why did they no say the device would launch next month. Also, the end of July is still 6 weeks away, giving Apple plenty of time to catch up to demand. This leads me to hope believe that “Coming Soon” is referring to sometime this month, after all it would not make sense for Apple to say “Coming in June” as the month is already half over.
Verizon is confirming the upcoming release of the Motorola Droid X with a promotional website for the device. The Droid X features a 854 x 480 4.3″ display, HDMI output, and 720p capture. Expect the official launch to be next week, June 23rd.
