    You might want to treat this with a small dose of skepticism, at least until we hear official wording from Sprint itself, but according to the leaked document pictured above, Sprint will start offering iPhone trade-in credit given you grab the latest iPhone 4S. The program should kick off today and run through June 30; it should address both new and existing customers, given you sign a two-year contract and add a new line. At least $100 is what you'll get in credit for any iPhone, the exact amount probably depending on the model, condition and specs (as in internal storage). If you fancy ...

    Chris Weber, President of Nokia Inc. North America, has received lots of emails about this new website called Smartphone Beta Test, and this means that the ball is rolling. April 8 is the day when the Nokia Lumia 900 will be available on AT&T's network but the countdown on the website seems to refer to a somewhat earlier date. At a first glance, there's no indication that we're looking at an official Nokia website. However, if you take a closer look at the top left, you can almost see the Nokia logo under that black chalk. That, and some references to Nokia's website found inside the web ...

    Regardless if you are using a PC or a Mac, if you have an iPhone or an iPad, you occasionally need to use Apple's iTunes application to sync and update software (if you manage your libraries with something else). A new version of iTunes has been released and, as usual, it is always good to have the latest one installed. It "fixes several issues that may cause iTunes to unexpectedly quit while playing videos, changing artwork size in Grid view, and syncing photos to devices". Additionally, it "addresses an issue where some iTunes interface elements are incorrectly described by VoiceOver and ...

    So if you're on the list of people that cringed their teeth when they hit the Install button of the OTA upgrade of iOS 5.1 and forgot all about their Jailbreak, you might be in luck. The Dev-Team has just updated RedN0w to version 0.9.10b6 and it brings you the option of getting a tethered jailbreak of your device as long as it doesn't run on an A5 chip (Sorry iPhone 4S and iPad2 readers). There's nothing hot about a tethered jailbreak of any iOS device, but if you lost it by mistake, you're sadly out of of choices. Make sure you download the version of Redsn0w for either your Mac or PC ...

    At the beginning of February Motorola scored an important win against Apple in Germany. The German Mannheim Regional Court granted a permanent injunction against Apple's iCloud push email service (as well as the predecessor, MobileMe) and any devices that can access it. Now Apple has quietly published a support document acknowledging the situation: "Due to recent patent litigation by Motorola Mobility, iCloud and MobileMe users are currently unable to have iCloud and MobileMe email pushed to their iOS devices while located within the borders of Germany." Users of the service offerings in ...

    If you fire up iTunes on your iPhone, iPad or computer, you'll see that there is a brand new section inside the store called "Mastered for iTunes". This way Apple tries to deliver best possible audio quality encoded files for all those details inside the tunes. Audio files are delivered in iTunes Plus format which has a variable bit rate of 256 kbps for the AAC file format (compared to 128 kbps AAC files available in the early days). Publishers will be able to submit better quality recordings and the end user, regardless if we talk about your average listener or an audiophile, will benefit ...

    There are two rather important bits today regarding the world of Android and Apple. Motorola was seeking an injunction against Apple's iCloud and the German Mannheim Regional Court granted a permanent injunction. It refers to Apple's iCloud push email service (as well as MobileMe) and any devices that can access it. The Motorola lawsuit was aimed at Apple Sales International (the Ireland-based European sales organization for Cupertino) and the decision is only enforceable in Germany (so it's not Europe-wide). Users, as Florian Mueller notes, "will probably have to configure their clients ...

    How well do you remember the smartphone back in 2006? Chances are most of you didn't really care about them or owned one because they were either too expensive or just too difficult to operate effectively. This was the era of predominant QWERTY keyboards, soft-keys, small 2.4-inch screens at a QVGA resolution, EDGE data speeds, limited storage, scroll bars, and terrible browsers. Smartphones weren't about the consumer. You'd judge them by how fast you could switch between tasks because they were mainly focused on the business user. In times when smartphones keep getting bigger, most people ...

    Apple's Senior Vice President of Industrial Design, Sir Jonathan Ive, is responsible for some great designs over the years with the company, including the iPhone. He received the Knight Commander of the Most Excellent Order of the British Empire title in the 2012 New Year Honours list for his services to design. Ive declared he was "both humbled and sincerely grateful" and, while Mr. Ive can now call himself Sir Ive, he said the honor is "absolutely thrilling" and that he is "keenly aware that I benefit from a wonderful tradition in the UK of designing and making".

    There's no denying that any iOS device, whether it's the iPad, iPhone or iPod Touch are all great gaming devices. The only sad part of playing any game on a touch screen is when your fingers cover the players on any sports game. Touch controls are a nice idea, but for those of us that grew up with a full Gamepad, touch controls can become a sort of novelty. Sadly, all the recent attempts to provide iOS devices with a game controller haven't been quite as functional as we'd want. 60beat has just come with a cool Gamepad that uses your iPhone's headphone jack to provide you with Analogue ...

    Whether the gift-wrap is off, or you simply strolled into an Apple Store on Christmas day, your iOS device is here. We know you decided to wait a while and see if it was really worth purchasing one in the first place, and as results show so far, Apple's current line-up of iOS devices is worth every penny.

    The ongoing legal war between Apple and Samsung (and maybe other OEMs too) is probably going to be a bit more interesting now that Cupertino has managed to secure an important iPhone patent. The U.S. Patent and Trademark Office has granted Apple a patent for the "core iPhone multi-touch". When Cupertino first introduced the iPhone in 2007, multi-touch was just one of the approximately 200 innovations Apple filed patents for. Without going deep into technical explanations related to the way multi-touch works, it is definitely described as "sensing a plurality of events occurring ...

    If you've been waiting a long time for Grand Theft Auto III chances are you bought the game the minute it was published. If you somehow didn't manage to do it (or you just decided you might want to give it a try) now would be best to do it as the title is being sold for $2.99 until December 29. Additionally, Rockstar Games have added official Samsung Galaxy Nexus support so those lucky enough to have the Ice Cream Sandwich-powered smartphone can enjoy the game. Motorola Droid Bionic and Samsung Galaxy S2 owners can also play and if you happen to have an Apple iPhone, you're in luck too ...
