Apple has just invited members of the press to attend a San Francisco-based product launch event on September 12th, where the next generation iPhone is expected to be officially unveiled. As rumored, it seems as if the company’s prior iPod-focused fall events may be split off into two. It’s been reported that an October event may follow this one, with a miniaturized 7-inch iPad on the docket for that. This event, however, seems a lock for the iPhone 5 — or “new iPhone,” or whatever it ends up being coined — and while CEO Tim Cook confessed at D10 that it would be doubling down on secrecy, leakers seem to have doubled down on tipping the world off on what’s to come. The keynote kicks off at 10AM PT in SF, and you can bet we’ll be there covering every second of it live. Didn’t have any “lunch” plans for 9/12? Looks like you do now.

A little bit of good news for those of you who are still trying to get the AT&T Samsung Galaxy S III from an actual … what do you call it … oh, right — store. The carrier today says it expects full stock on July 6 — that's this Friday. Preorders have been shipping over the past several days, so that's been taken care of. But being able to walk in, hold the GSIII in your hand and then plop down some cash has been problematic, at best. This week that ends.
Pricing remains $199 for the 16GB version, which is all AT&T's got. But you can still slap up to a 64GB microSD card in there, so all's not lost.
But before you hoof it over to an AT&T store — hell, before you eat lunch — be sure to read our complete AT&T Galaxy S III review.
We’ve heard multiple reports and rumors about the supposed specs of the Samsung Galaxy S III for months on end now. With multiple “leaks” and images also hitting the web we’ve still never seen anything too convincing. It’s been said to have already reached some carriers for testing in Korea, but that is about all we know. What we do know though, is Samsung has done a great job keeping things a mystery with the Galaxy S III.
Earlier this week we were just talking about this here at AC. How nothing concrete had been leaked regarding actual specs, hardware, or any pictures yet. Obviously some of what we’ve seen (linked to below) could end up being the real deal but they’ve all looked pretty fake so far. Samsung has done a great job hiding everything regarding the Galaxy S III and some new reports from Redmond Pie mentions how and why. It looks like Samsung is taking another approach that Apple has, and is disguising their flagship device to mislead the average eye or leakster.
We’ve heard 4.65″ screens to 4.8″, dual-core 2.0 GHz processors and 1.5 GHz quad-cores and more, but nothing is actually known. According to what we are now hearing. The device is actually being tested by multiple carriers around the world, but has an excellent disguise. Coming with a huge and hideous case around it, being described as a “lunch box” like disguise.
Apparently the device has been in carriers possession for testing for around 8 weeks now. A full two months. If that is the case then we should be seeing or hearing more very soon — as long as things are going well of course. If rumors are to be believed this aluminum housed phone should rock an amazing 4.8″ Super AMOLED HD screen, be super thin, powered by a blazing fast quad-core processor, and have an awesome 8 or 12 megapixel camera around back. All sealed up with 4G LTE and Android 4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich.
I for one am extremely excited to see what Samsung has in store for us, and pretty sure I’m not alone either. With competition between Apple and now HTC starting to really heat up, this entire disguise idea makes total sense. Thoughts?

The Mobile Worker has grown ten fold in the last five years. According to this infographic published by our friends at Meshin, a mobile worker is:
“Any worker who uses a mobile device (including laptops, smartphones an tablets) and accesses networks to do their job at home, in the field, or while traveling for work”
At this day and age I wouldn’t be surprised if about 90% of us are in that category. According to the data set 87% of tablet owners use them for work. 73% use their own tablets for work. This is quite an accomplishment being that good quality tablets have only been on the market for the last few years.
The infographic also highlights the progress we’ve made in terms of cellular phones since 1984.
There area 700 million to a billion mobile works globally now. Are you guilty of any of these things:
working through lunch?
tucking kids into bed and returning to work (in a mobile sense)
going back to work remotely after dinner?
Do you work before you even go to work?
This infographic from Meshin really sums it all up and is extremely accurate, at least for most of the people that I know. Meshin is working on great productivity apps (and you know how I love productivity). The Meshin Beta app is an email, message, instant message aggregator that displays all of your messages in a news reader format.
Meshin Recall is a genius compliment to evernote which brings your calendar through your evernote so that you can make notes and recall them later by date. In a meeting with Meshin at South By Southwest we were told about some even more intuitive things that will be coming from this company that prefers to release apps to Android first.
[Render] Super-Sharp HTC Zeta Will Poke Your Eyes Out With Its Corners, Burn Your Hands With Its Blazing 2.5Ghz Quad-Core Processor
So, looky at what we have here: yet another render for a supposedly upcoming HTC device. This one is a far cry from the current crop of HTC phones on the market — heck, it’s even a whole different beast from the Edge and Ville. This one looks mean.
Not only does this monster look like it will beat up all the other phones and take their lunch money, but it’s rumored to have the power to back it up. Under that sharp unibody hood, the Zeta is said to be packing a face-melting…

Here we are again, on another wonderful hump day. Knowing in our hearts that when lunch ends it is all down hill from there. WireFly’s ‘take fifty’ 24 hour promotion is in full swing again today. Todays device is the Motorola DROID X2 on Verizon wireless. You should know the drill by now, but in case you don’t I’ll explain. Watch the silly YouTube video that WireFly has prepared for you, look for the coupon code and click it. Take that code toWireFly and place your oder for the DROID X2 on a new 2 year contract and you are set. The DX2 is already on sale for $89.99, but if you follow the instructions you can get your hands on it for only $39.99. Pretty simple promo and pretty amazing price for a great Android device. Check out the video below to find that code.
With each and every passing day, the rumors surrounding Verizon’s new “usage plans” are getting tougher to ignore. It’s only been two days since we initially heard Big Red was ready to ride its unlimited data plans into the sunset in favor of switching to a newer, more usage-friendly model, and the leaks continue to flood in. This go-round, very official-looking docs that offer up a whole slew of details are in the open air. Many of the details echo what we’ve heard before: the data plans are the same price, starting at $30 for 2GB and working up to increments of 5GB for $50 and 10GB for $80; mobile hotspot access is an additional $20 and you’ll get hooked up with an extra pair of gigs; finally, going over these allotments will cost you $10 per GB.
As rumored yesterday, all customers grandfathered into the unlimited monthly data will be allowed to keep it, even when upgrading to new phones. Business discounts, currently applied to the limitless plans, would now only apply to primary lines that are willing to fork out $50 or more; however, the wording did not indicate whether or not those grandfathered in would still receive those same benefits. More leaked docs can be found after the break, so grab some lunch and find your favorite chair — you’ll need ‘em.

Looks like Google is going to be assisting iRobot in getting some highly important functionality running on the Ava Telepresence tablet displayed at CES a couple of months ago. That’s right, we’re talking about Android apps. Both companies are hard at work developing specific programs with the ability to run smoothly on the Android enabled tab. The applications are geared towards being able to communicate with the robot itself, giving it simple directions and commands. Who knows what these things will be able to do some day. Maybe, perhaps, we can get them to clean our rooms, serve us drinks and make us lunch while spouting off my calendar events for the day? I don’t know, but I’m sure in time we’ll figure something out for them to do. Hit the break to check out the video from Google I/O and don’t forget to let us know what you think in the comments below. Read More…
Google didn’t waste any time to poke playful fun at their biggest mobile competitor – Apple.
Android is eating Blackberry, Nokia, Windows Phone, and Feature Phone lunch more than anything else… but I won’t complain about taking a bit out of Apple. Bring on GOOGLE IO!
Despite all that battery life issues that the HTC company has brought on its devices, people still enjoy getting stylish and reliable smart-phones and, soon, a tablet, as far as company’s profits has risen a bit (in our heads a bit means a lot). So, during the first-quarter company’s profit had reached T$14.83 billion (~$511 million) and that is almost on 2 billion higher than the predicted T$12.99 billion point. Q1 2011 revenues apparently topped T$104.2 billion (~$3.6 billion), with consolidated sales for March hitting T$37 billion (~$1.3 billion). I do not know how much it is in devices but I can say with a firm that this is a lot of phones no matter from what angle you are looking at it. I do hope that with the upcoming HTC Flyer we will be able to see a few percents added in the profit report. And please, HTC, do something about the battery life because it is very annoying when after lunch there is only 5% of the morning charge left.
Oh snap! Look who just ate Apple’s and Google’s lunch here? Amazon has just pushed out its very own music streaming service, dubbed Amazon Cloud Player.

We had lunch today with the folks from Bizzy. Bizzy is a new location based app, but better than that they are looking to change the paradigm from the traditional check in apps.
