Super-cool Titanium iPhone re-news: Engadget vs.Gizmodo fight

When an Engadget reader Martin Schrotz posted cool images supposedly representing a custom back cover modification for his iPhone 3GS, Gizmodo jumped on the opportunity to publicly bash Engadget for failing to realize it was a fake.

According to Engadget, Schrotz crafted his modification out of a single piece of wested titanium, highly durable and ultra-light material that Apple used in the past for the enclosure of its PowerBook G4 Titanium notebook. Schrotz originally wrote in a forum post at Modmyi that he himself designed the mod in a CAD software because the plasticky appearance of his iPhone 3GS itched him enough to engineer a much more sturdier and way more pleasing casing.

Engadget and Gizmodo are no strangers to rapid fire exchanges over scoops and exclusives. The two publications have been engaged in a never-ending (albeit good-natured) fight over both the tech readership and crown of the most credible tech publication on the web since 2002, when Nick Denton’s Gawker Media launched Gizmodo as an all-encompassing tech blog. Soon thereafter, Weblogs, Inc. hired Gizmodo’s original editor Peter Rojas, tasking him to launch a rival publication that would become Engadget.

iPhone OS 3.1 Exchange changes: Apple explains

iPhone and iPhone 3G users hit a roadblock last week trying to login to Exchange 2007 servers after upgrading to iPhone OS 3.1.

Because the problems began with the latest update, it may seem reasonable to assume that the update is to blame, but it’s not. In fact, everything is working exactly how it’s supposed to be, according to Apple.

iPhone OS 3.1 is working properly with Exchange Server 2007,” Apple representative Natalie Harrison told CNET News. They added device encryption information to the data that can be managed by IT administrators using Exchange Server 2007. The policy of whether to support iPhone 3G, in addition to iPhone 3GS, which always has on-device encryption, on Exchange Server 2007 is set by the administrator and can be changed at any time.

What this means is that iPhone OS 3.1 now properly identifies itself to Exchange 2007 as having hardware encryption, and that’s what is causing the problems for iPhone and iPhone 3G users.

iPhone OS 3.0 did not identify itself properly to Exchange 2007 on any iPhone. This means that if you had a 3G and Exchange 2007 was configured to require hardware encryption, you could still login, even though the device does not have hardware encryption.

With iPhone OS 3.1, all iPhones identify themselves properly to the server, essentially fixing a glitch in the previous operating system. However, now iPhone and iPhone 3G users that upgraded to iPhone OS 3.1 cannot login to Exchange 2007 servers that require hardware encryption.

If you use the new iPhone 3GS, you won’t notice any change. Apple’s newest phone is equipped with hardware encryption, so it will meet the requirements of the Exchange server when identifying itself.

If you already upgraded to iPhone OS 3.1 on an iPhone or iPhone 3G and connect to an Exchange 2007 server, you can ask that the IT admin turn off the hardware encryption requirement for those devices.

Company IT administrators who require hardware encryption to access Exchange 2007 will need to decide whether they want older iPhones to access their servers. If so, they will need to configure Exchange to not require encryption from the iPhone and iPhone 3G.

Of course, if you haven’t upgraded your iPhone, it will continue to access Exchange 2007 as it always did.

Apple Topples Microsoft for Mobile Share

Apple demonstrated its growing clout in the mobile space when it knocked Microsoft off for third place in global smartphone sales last year, according to Gartner’s latest report.

Apple’s market share grew by 6.2 percent from 2008, to sell 24 million iPhones for 14.4 percent of the market. Microsoft’s Windows Mobile devices had 8.7 percent market share, with 15 million devices sold.

Overall, worldwide mobile phone sales reached 1.21 billion units last year, a 0.9 percent decline from the year before.

However, smartphone sales grew strongly, up 23.81 percent over the year before to reach 172.4 million units, said Carolina Milanesi, research director at Gartner, in the report.

Milanesi highlighted Apple and Research in Motion’s (RIM) performance in capturing market share with their smartphone portfolios. RIM had 19.9 percent of this market.

Of the overall mobile market, Nokia was still the number one phone vendor with a 36.4 percent share, having shipped 441 million handsets. This, however, represented a 2.2 percent market share drop over 2008.

The Finnish outfit also dominated in the Asia-Pacific mobile space, with a 40.8 percent share comprising 197,000 phones sold, over second place holder Samsung with 15 percent and 72 million shipped. Asia Pacific, in contrast to the flat global market, saw a total of 483.5 million devices sold last year, up 6.7 percent from 453.1 million in 2008.

Milanesi said: “Nokia’s declining smartphone average selling prices showed that it continues to face challenges from other smartphone vendors.”

Nokia sold 80 million Symbian devices last year, holding on to a 46.9 percent market share. It had 52.4 percent in 2008.

Roberta Cozza, principal research analyst at Gartner, said: “Symbian has become uncompetitive in recent years but its market share, particularly on Nokia devices, is still strong. If Symbian can use this momentum, it could return to positive growth.”

The Symbian Foundation is expecting the first fully open source Symbian^3 devices by the end of the first quarter of 2010, with Symbian^4 slated for year-end, said Cozza.

Another strong performer in the smartphone market last year was Android, pointed out Cozza. With more manufacturers releasing Android-based devices, the Google-backed OS grew its market share by 3.5 percent to reach 3.9 percent of the market, at 6.8 million devices.

In January this year, Google released its Nexus One device, placing itself in competition with other partners which have released Android devices under their own brands.

Said Cozza: “Android’s success experienced in the fourth quarter of 2009 should continue into 2010, as more manufacturers launch Android products, but some service providers and manufacturers have expressed growing concern about Google’s intentions in the mobile market.

“If such concerns cause manufacturers to change their product strategies or service providers to switch which devices they stock, this might hinder Android’s growth in 2010,” he added.

The rise of Apple and Android devices is likely tied to an increase in the number of touchscreen smartphones in the market. According to a recent Canalys report, touchscreens formed the majority of global smartphone shipments in the fourth quarter of 2009, having doubled 2008’s figure to hit 55 percent. This translates to 75 million touchscreen smartphones shipped last year.
