Apple iPod Touch
In the recent days, Apple iPhone and iPod Touch are covered with rumors. The biggest rumor has come in light about iPod Touch with camera feature in 2010. According to the rumor, Apple is working on iPod touch to launch a camera feature in September but now the gossips are back.

According to the inside sources, Apple had planned to launch an iPod touch with camera in September. However, the rumor didn’t face any reality. The rumor get back because there is no official evidence.

We already know that the gadget has space to add a camera feature. I think the gadget space for camera has taken a gossip as iPod touch with camera feature. However, there is no official comment on the speculation.

According to the rumor, next generation of iPod Touch will come in market with a camera feature just like iPod Nano. However, there is no surety about it. We can just wait for the decision of Apple about the rumor. In coming future, there is no proof about this rumor.

Another rumor has taken place about Apple iPhone with Verizon. According to the rumor, Apple iPhone touch screen would head to Verizon Wireless. Recently, Kent German who is the senior editor for cell phone reviews at CNET writes, “Otherwise, I think it's unlikely that Apple would produce a CDMA-only version, even for America's largest carrier. I could be wrong, but I'm not going to believe any rumors about a Verizon iPhone until I hear something from Apple and Verizon. And similarly, I'm not going to believe anything about AT&T's exclusivity until I hear it from AT&T.” Now, the thing is very clear from his writing. There is no space about the rumor also. It means Verizon iPhone rumors are just rumors only.

We can conclude the both rumors as the rumors only. There is no space and facts to believe on the both rumors about the iPod Touch and Apple iPhone.

It has great functionality and features which attract users but the camera features are surly low. It has only 2MP pixel camera which will create some doubt in the photography users because in the market there are already 12 MP cameras available.

All the reviews give some negative points to its camera. In spite of, we can not ignore the phone as a competitor of iPhone because iPhone also not contain very higher mega pixel camera.

SmartPhone Curve 8520 all votes go to its design and smart looking phone. It is such a fantastic phone in the design of Apple iPhone. I will also give my vote to BlackBerry Curve 8520 for its keypad and touch-screen.

I am going to share one of the great stories of a kid who create a history for Apple iPhone application. The kid is only 9 years old and developed an iPhone application. Below is news about that kid:

"Ding Wen is only 9 years old guy but he has created a history for iPhone. Apple iPhone users always remembered that child when they download a free application for their iPhone. Ding Wen is famous for making an application for Apple iPhone.

Ding Wen achievement is Doodle Kids which is a painting program to create drawing on iPhone in different coloure and shapes. Users of iPhone can touch their finger on touch-screen to make a fantastic design.

Ding Wen is a student of Primary 4 at Lianhua Primary School. The program had been written by him last year but it has been adopted for iPhone this year recently. It is only two weeks when he uploaded the application online for iPhone users and it is absolutely free.

The painting application has been downloaded more than 4,000 times till now. Most of the downloading comes from US. It is the great achievement by a kid whose name is Ding Wen because it is the time of playing for any guy. From my point of view the guy is extraordinary.

Ding Wen announced in news paper that he had written the program for his sister, “I wrote the program for my younger sisters, who like to draw. But I am happy that people like it.”

Doodle Kids application has been written successfully in Pascal and then it has been adopted for iPhone.

Now, people can assume how iPhone popular is! If a guy writes the application for iPhone and is adopted for that it means Apple product is an interactive stuff with users also.

There is no need to mention about iPhone features because it is clear from my previous post which was in about of App store and iPhone technology review."
