Just last month, we reported on PhoneItiPad, an iPad tweak that lets 3G-capable iPads take full advantage of a connection to a cell network, allowing users to make and receive phone calls, as well as send and receive SMS. A few weeks later, the tweak is finally available to the general public, for $19.99.
The iPhoneIslam team, which has previously authored FaceIt3GS, has come up with a new hack which will blow your mind: full calling and SMS support on the 3G iPad.
We have already seen iPad installed in the cars, being used in restaurants as menu cards, and how some airlines are thinking about adopting it as an inflight entertainment system for its passengers in the skies. But how about a popular movie director using iPad to direct his upcoming movie? Sounds cool isn’t it?
Apple has released the long awaited iOS 3.2.1 for iPad to fix the WiFi issue which has been problematic for some iPad WiFi and iPad 3G users since its launch. Note, if you love your jailbroken iPad, avoid iPad 3.2.1 firmware as it patches the exploit used by Spirit jailbreak tool.
After successfully selling one million iPads in the first month of its launch, Apple today in a press release has announced that they have now sold two million iPads in the first two months, making it an average selling of one million iPads every month. This is what Steve Jobs had to say on this occasion.
We just stumbled upon a video on YouTube by 1938digital in which “fake” Microsoft CEO Steve Ballmer reviews the latest revolution of Apple in his very own trademark style. In his review, Ballmer explains why the iPad sucks, and how a new Microsoft Tablet with Windows 7, Windows Mobile, Azure, the Cloud and God knows what else is going to rule this market.
Apple doesn’t like to kid around when they’re talking about numbers. In a press release today, Apple has revealed that they have sold 1,000,000 units in the first month of it’s launch. This according to Apple is less than half of the 74 days it took for the original iPhone EDGE to achieve the same milestone back in 2007.
Wow! There is some great work being done in the jailbreaking community for the newly released iPad 3G. The infamous iPhone Dev Team has managed to send SMS text messages from iPad 3G using command line terminal. Even though it is early in development (no GUI), it still gets to show one of the many possibilities that you can get using a jailbroken iDevice.
Finally the wait is over, the most anticipated version of the iPad, the iPad 3G, has hit all Apple Stores across the US. Grab yours now before they’re all sold out.
We had already informed you earlier about the availability of iPad on 30th April for those of you who have already placed an order for the 3G version. A reader today sent an email to Steve Jobs asking about the availability of iPad 3G at Best Buy stores on the launch day. Jobs reply was as usual quick and short: “Yep”.
