    The rumor mill may have been early, but it's about to be proven correct - says Bloomberg.

    It appears that Verizon, the largest U.S. mobile-phone company, will at long last finally introduce coverage for Apple's iPhone next year - possibly as early as January. Bloomberg is reporting from two familiar sources in the know (not something a major, credible news source like Bloomberg does very often) ...

    Over the weekend, MMi exclusively reported a leak from AT&T Ninja about the iPhone 4 shipment to retail stores - an arrival that was to come in two waves - an early one Monday night and a stealth 2nd shipment Tuesday between 10:30 and noon. It turns out that all suspicions of a quick sell out have materialized, as we're now hearing from readers via Twitter (with pics to prove it) that lines outside some AT&T stores are much bigger than their inventories of new iPhones.

    According to one report, an individual was number 52 in line. The store, ...

    Ok Steve, stop holding it back. We want iMovie on our iPhone 3GS. We didn't upgrade just to be left in the dust. We still have video, there is no reason that iMovie shouldn't work on the 3GS, besides the slower rendering. Come on Steve! Why are you holding out on us.

    Well Steve, if you won't do it, someone else will. An upstanding fellow by the name ...

    With little fanfare, Apple has added High-Speed Uplink Packet Access (HSUPA) support to the iPhone, and it significantly improves performance. A report in ZDNet over the weekend indicated about 60% faster downloads and a 500% in upload throughput. The results will vary depending on the support for HSPA on the local AT&T cell: in Boston, I'm getting about double the download throughput ...

    At MMi, we see all sorts of cool, innovative modified functionalities for the iPhone and iPod touch. And while some are certainly more practical than others, the ability to transform your smartphone into a surprisingly sophisticated teleprompter is certainly worth an honorable mention.

    Whether you're making a speech at school or delivering a nationally televised address (not that many of us do that sort of thing on a regular ...

    Between iFixit's teardown of the iPhone 4 and iSuppli's subsequent analysis of the components, we're finally gaining some fairly telling insight as to how much it costs to physically produce a fourth generation iPhone. As you might expect, it isn't overtly expensive to manufacture Apple's updated smartphone.

    As it turns out, the iPhone 4 costs approximately $200 to manufacture - $187.51 to be as close ...
