[big debate] If this had WP7 on it or even the latest Android I would buy…

…ASAP. It has neither. It will officially fail after a few months. The specs requirements for WP7 are better than this.

iPhone’s App Store ‘Try Before You Buy’ section isn’t exactly what you’re hoping for

We love Android’s 24-hour app return policy, so when we heard about Apple opening a “Try Before You Buy” section in the App Store, we grabbed the closest iDevice in our proximity to see what exactly was up. Only, it isn’t exactly what we expected given the name. Located under Features -> Free on the App Store, the new section serves only to highlight the free / “lite” edition of apps with premium older siblings. A smart and organized section, sure, but the for-pay programs without a demo will still be a risk your iTunes account will have to take. Them’s the breaks; might as well add it to your personal iOS 5 wishlist alongside widgets and a new notification system.

Apple’s Steve Jobs: ‘no one’s going to buy’ a big phone

Digg this! In response to a question at its press conference today about whether Apple could’ve done anything to avoid its antenna issues with the iPhone 4, Steve took the opportunity to rip on bigger rivals, saying that making a phone so big “you can’t get your hand around it” helps, but that “no one’s going to buy that.” We’re assuming he’s likely talking about the latest crop of 4-, 4.3- and 5-inch phones that include the Galaxy S series, the EVO 4G, Droid X, and Dell Streak, even going so far as to call them “Hummers” (we take it you don’t ever drive a Hummer, Steve?). Though ripping on the competition is to be expected, perhaps the more interesting takeaway here is that we can’t realistically expect an iPhone much bigger than the 3.5-inch display they use today — presumably that’ll all be reserved for iPad territory going forward. We personally don’t mind something with a little more screen real estate — but hey, maybe humans need to go through a few more cycles of evolutionary hand enlargement before Cupertino’s willing to capitulate.

Leaked image says iPad lands at Best Buy… on launch day

We’d heard buzzing for some time now around the internet that Apple planned to sell its iPad in more than just its own stores, and usually the name Best Buy was mentioned in the same breath… but now we’ve got some photographic evidence. The above shot comes from what looks to be an internal memo from the big box retailer, not only stating that the stores will be getting the iPad, but that they’ll be getting the iPad on launch day. Now, there’s no way for us to confirm that is 100 percent the real deal, but we speculated this could be coming back in mid-February, and there’s lots of corroborating evidence to suggest this is no joke (such as COO Tim Cook explicitly mentioning the device would be sold at Best Buy) — we just didn’t expect to see it day one. We’re digging for more info on this story, so stay tuned.
