Apple's iPhone 4G: What We Know So Far

By Jared Newman from

Apple's leak control has apparently failed again, with photos and video of yet another alleged iPhone 4G prototype appearing on a Vietnamese Internet forum and on YouTube.

Indeed, the drama surrounding these prototypes -- the first was lost in a bar and bought by Gizmodo, which now faces legal trouble -- may be the most exciting part of the story, but ideally it's all in service of telling us more about the phone itself. Unfortunately, the supposed new iPhone 4G prototype doesn't reveal many more details, but it helps corroborate the specs in Gizmodo's earlier prototype and paints a more complete picture of Apple's next iPhone. Assuming this latest prototype is real, here's what we know so far:


Apple appears to abandon the curvy shape of previous iPhones in favor of sharp angles on the edges. Gizmodo's prototype had screws in the aluminum border around the sides, but these are gone in the Vietnam version. I'm not thrilled with the new design, but that's another story.

The back panel is made of glass, ceramic, shiny plastic, or maybe even sapphire (according to an Engadget commenter's translation of the latest video), and it's shiny and somewhat smudge-prone, just like the iPhone's front panel. Before the leaks, one analyst speculated that the back panel would be touch-sensitive, like Apple's magic mouse, but neither leak confirms this.


A teardown of the alleged Vietnam prototype reveals a new chip with Apple branding. This is likely part of Apple's A4 chip family, which debuted in the iPad and gives Apple greater flexibility than third-party processors. Clock speed is unspecified, but 1 GHz seems likely given previous rumors.


What's new and noteworthy with the iPhone 4G prototypes? A front-facing camera, an improved rear-facing camera with a flash, a second microphone for noise cancellation, and an improved display whose exact resolution is unknown, but is rumored to be 960-by-640. Instead of a standard SIM slot, the new iPhone supposedly uses Micro-SIM, just like the iPad. Gizmodo reported that the iPhone 4G prototype is 3 grams heavier than its predecessor and has a 16 percent larger battery.

The Vietnam prototype lists 16 GB of storage capacity on the back panel. I'm guessing Apple will bump the maximum capacity to 64 GB -- as it did with the iPod Touch -- and offer a middle-tier 32 GB model, but the prototypes provide no clues on that front.


As Engadget notes, a sticker on the Vietnam prototype's A4 processor reads "N90," which also appeared in a bar code attached to Gizmodo's prototype. John Gruber of Daring Fireball cites several unnamed sources who say this is Apple's code name for the fourth-generation GSM iPhone. Verizon Wireless uses CDMA wireless standard instead of GSM, so the phones we've seen so far appear destined for AT&T, despite persistent rumors.

Prosecutors Cite Confidential Informant in iPhone Probe

By David Kravets from

California prosecutors investigating Gizmodo’s purchase of a prototype iPhone have offered a new argument for keeping details of the probe a secret: Public disclosure could compromise “the identity of an informer.”

The claim, made in a court filing Thursday, is the first indication that police cultivated an inside source prior to raiding the home of Gizmodo editor Jason Chen, whose employer paid $5,000 for a prototype 4G iPhone found at a Redwood City bar., the Associated Press, the Los Angeles Time and other news outlets have asked a California judge to unseal the search warrant affidavit that led to the raid on Chen’s Fremont, California, home last month. We argued that under California law, the public has a right to see the documents that led San Mateo County Superior Court Judge Clifford V. Cretan to approve the search. A hearing in San Mateo County Superior Court has been set for Friday.

Last month’s search raised questions whether the authorities overstepped their boundaries in breaking into the home of the Gizmodo journalist and seizing six computers and other items.

Prosecutors in the investigation initially said last week they wanted to keep the document sealed to avoid tipping off two unnamed people of interest. But in a court filing (.pdf), prosecutors cited a provision of the California Evidence Code that protects informants from identification.

The right to access court documents does not “outweigh the Peoples’ right to protect the sanctity of an ongoing investigation,” wrote San Mateo County Deputy District Attorney Chris Feasel, “nor does it outweigh the rights of the people to protect the identity of persons who may have provided information to law enforcement in confidence during the initial stages of investigation.”

Prosecutors have rejected a proposed compromise that would unseal the affidavit with any sensitive names redacted.

On April 19, Gizmodo dropped a bombshell on the gadget world with a detailed look at the iPhone prototype an Apple employee had apparently lost at a bar. The attorney for 21-year-old Brian J. Hogan has acknowledged it was his client who found the device, and passed it to Gizmodo in exchange for a payment. Gizmodo publisher Gawker Media says it paid $5,000 for the iPhone, and returned the phone to Apple following publication of the story.

Hogan’s attorney has acknowledged that his client met with investigators, but declined to say whether authorities executed a search on Hogan.

Rogers Announces Data Plans for iPad in Canada

By Keith McArthur from :

Apple fans are passionate about Apple products. We know because we’re among them.

Rogers introduced the iPhone to Canada in 2008 and we were the first Canadian carrier to announce that we’ll carry the iPad. Now we’re thrilled to say it’s available for pre-order today at and is set to launch on May 28.

We have a long-standing, strong working relationship with Apple and we think our years of experience will benefit Canadian iPad customers.

All iPad data plans will be available without a term contract, providing the freedom to activate or cancel a plan at any time. Rogers customers purchasing the iPad will be able to take advantage of the new iPad data plans to enjoy the device’s full suite of capabilities, backed by the reliability of Rogers’ proven network.

Here are the pricing options we’re making available to future iPad customers:

-250 MB for $15 + WiFi (Includes free unlimited access to all Rogers WiFi Hot Spots)
-5 GB for $35 + WiFi (Includes free unlimited access to all Rogers WiFi Hot Spots)

Customer experience shows that our 250mb/5GB plans will be more than enough for virtually all our customers. 99.8 per cent of our iPhone customers use less than 5GB of data. As the tablet is a new category, it’s too early to say if customers will use more or less data than they do for iPhone. But even for our rocket stick/embedded laptop customers, 95.6 per cent use less than 5GB per month.

Visit for full details on these plans. As always, we’ll keep you posted right here.

Note the iPad will not be available on the Fido brand at launch.

Much has been said about the tablet being an important new product category. More importantly, you now have more options than ever before to communicate, to be informed and to be entertained wherever, whenever you desire.

Excited yet? We are. And we’d like you to activate your iPad with Rogers.

Will you be buying an iPad? Why or why not?

IPad comes to Canada on May 28


The iPad will be available in Canada May 28.

Apple's iPad tablet-style computer will be available in Canada and eight other countries May 28, the company announced Friday.

The U.S. firm revealed that launch date for the iPad in Australia, Canada, France, Germany, Italy, Japan, Spain, Switzerland and the U.K. Customers will be able to order the iPad starting Monday.

The Wi-Fi-only version of the iPad will sell in Canada for $549 for the model with 16 gigabytes of storage, $649 for 32 GB and $749 for 64 GB.

The version that connects to both Wi-Fi and 3G cellular networks will sell for $679 for 16 GB, $779 for 32 GB and $879 for 64 GB.

Apple didn't say which Canadian cellphone company would carry the 3G signal, but Rogers Communications has previously announced that the 3G iPad will run on its network.

Rogers announced in April it would offer iPad price plans for all models when it becomes available in Canada.

Bell Canada on Friday said the device would work on its network, but did not say whether it would offer plans for it. Telus said it could not yet provide any information on the iPad.

The launch of the iPad outside the U.S. was postponed twice after the device was unveiled in January. Apple initially said the iPad would be sold outside the U.S. in late March, but the date was pushed back to late April and then late May.

Free iBooks download
The iBooks e-book reading app and the iBookstore from Apple will also be available to Canadians starting May 28. IBooks will be a free download for iPad, iPhone and iPod Touch.

Apple has sold more than one million iPads in the United States since they went on sale there April 5, with the Wi-Fi + 3G version going on sale April 30.

In the U.S., the iPad sells for $499 US at the low end, with the most expensive at $829 US.

Apple said the device will be released in Austria, Belgium, Hong Kong, Ireland, Luxembourg, Mexico, the Netherlands, New Zealand and Singapore in July.

Judge denies request to unseal warrant Gizmodo iPhone saga


A San Mateo County Judge has rejected a request from media organizations to unseal the search warrant affidavit used in the raid on Gizmodo editor Jason Chen's residence. Judge Stephen Hall denied the request for a hearing over the matter, although the initial decision appears to be based on technical grounds.

Judge Hall has reassigned the request to Judge Clifford Cretan, the judge who originally signed the search warrant used in the raid, according to a CNET report. The proceedings are expected to be delayed until the judge is done presiding over a separate trial.

The DA's office remains opposed to unsealing the affidavit, arguing that prosecutors have the right to "maintain the security of an ongoing investigation, which may well be compromised by the disclosure of the search warrant affidavit. The documents were allegedly sealed to protect the names of several additional persons of interest, until the police have a chance to contact them.

The raid has been criticized by the EFF and Gawker attorneys, as journalists receive special protection under state and federal law. The DA's office has defended its decision to go ahead with the search, although it agreed to halt further inspection of Chen's computers and other belongings until the matter has been resolved.

Prosecutors are pursuing the incident as a felony theft investigation initiated by Apple's request. Police have reportedly spoken with the individual who found the prototype, although formal charges have yet to be filed.
