The Japanese has come up with a really interesting iPhone case! It is the Factron Quattro for iPhone SP, a case made from leather, carbon fiber, and stainless steel. The case might sound expensive for slightly under $200, and may look a bit weird, but this case provides the ultimate in iPhone 3GS protection and at the same time offers extra lenses for iPhone’s camera function.
iPhone 3GS owners, the wait to jailbreak your shiny new iPhone 3GS is over! iPhone hacker George Hotz originally unlocked the iPhone, has released a jailbreaking application for the iPhone 3GS code-named purplera1n. The project started out as a tool only for certain variants of Windows, but has since blossomed into candidates for most modern variants of Windows (not Windows 7 though) and a Mac solution.
To jailbreak iPhone 3GS, go to purplera1n.com. Download the application. Make sure you have Windows (but not Windows 7), the latest iTunes installed, and an iPhone 3GS with 3.0 firmware. Connect your iPhone as you use normally. Click on “make it ra1n”. Wait. On bootup, run Freeze, the purplera1n installer app. From here, it’s quite simple and you should have no problem proceeding… This tool is still in beta, so make sure to have everything backed up before trying. In case Cydia doesn’t show up after running Freeze, reboot your iPhone.
The NokiPhone N3000i might resemble the Nokia N95 at first glance, but look carefully, isn’t it an iPhone? No, it isn’t! NokiPhone N3000i is a combination of Nokia N95 + Apple iPhone!
Basically the NokiPhone N3000i takes all the goodness of the Nokia N95 and then grabs a slice of the stylish iPhone, slams them together and comes up with this all new made-in-China NokiPhone N3000i. This mobile phone features dual-slider design reminiscent of Nokia N95 and a 3.2-inch touchscreen. It also features dual SIM cards capability. Too bad, NokiPhone N3000i does not support 3G.
Apple iPhone is the best portable media player ever. It browses the Web like a champ. Fun new interface for navigating within a mobile device. Huge screen looks amazing. Brilliant web browser. Syncs well with PCs and Macs. YouTube function is also fantastic.
Anyway, having said all that, the iPhone’s camera is still quite inferior compared to the current slew of camera phones out there. Most new Sony Ericsson and Nokia phones have a far better camera than that of Apple’s. But I was pleasantly surprised to see the 100 amazing iPhone photos compiled by Haje Jan Kamps of Photocritic.org. They are really amazingly good!
Check out a few of them below which are my favorite.
They call these “meanies”, short for mobile phone beanies. The one-size-fits-all socks come in four colors featuring four different but equally cute monkey faces. The recommended price for these mobile phone socks specially designed for iPhone is AU$14.95.
These Paul Frank’s Julius and friends’ adorable monkey faces are really cute and warming!
Where to buy? They are available at most mobile phone stores.
