Nokia’s throne is in a big danger ever before. The name of the danger is; Apple! Apple, has earned more than 10 billion dollar and profit 3.5 billion dollar in first quarter of 2010 year. Moreover; iPad’s sales wasn’t included in.

In Nokia side; they succeeded to reach total phone sales number to 100 million degree. Also they’ve increased their profit to 1.1 billion dolar from 850 million dollar. But it’s on the way that Apple iPhone’ll get the leadership from Nokia. iPhone succeded to sell more than 10 million sales in four months. Against to this; Nokia’s aiming to launch 22 million unit devices in following days.

The iPad which Apple announced today has caused disappointment to many. Why did the iPad cause iDisappointment to people? Well, that’s because the iPad is missing the following features:

* iPad Camera – There isn’t any camera at all. None in the FRONT or BACK!

* iPad Flash – There is no flash support because Apple won’t approve Flashplayer.

* iPad Multi-tasking – There is absolutely no multi-tasking. This is unacceptable for a Tablet that starts at a $499 price-point.

* iPad USB ports – There is no USB ports, so you can’t plug in your USB drive to transfer photos to it.

Are there any features I did not mention that you are disappointed that Apple did not include? Post them in the comments. Please also participate in the poll in our sidebar and let us know how you feel about the iPad.

Apple announced their iPad tablet today and a lot of you may be wondering whether or not it is possible to jailbreak the iPad. The iPad currently runs on iPhone 3.2 OS which will only be available on the iPad, and not on the iPhone or iPod touch. There are many different teams of iPhone hackers which I am sure will attempt to jailbreak iPad once it’s released.

The problem is that Apple has been changing their hardware and software and trying hard to patch software exploits that are used in jailbreaks. This was apparent when the 24kpwn exploit was patched when Apple released a newer iPhone 3GS and iPod touch model. When Apple patched the 24kpwn exploit, users were required to jailbreak each time they rebooted their iDevice (also called tethered jailbreak). Is it possible for Apple to completely block the jailbreak in the iPad? I doubt it because there has always been an exploit that the iPhone hacking community have been able to find and use. At the very least we should be able to get a tethered jailbreak on the iPad. I’m pretty sure Geohot will be the one who can get us an iPad jailbreak as he is very skilled at this! We’ll just have to wait and see because the iPad won’t be released until about 60 days from now.

The iPhone 3.1.3 update that Apple released today required users of jailbroken iPhones or iPod Touches to wait for a new jailbreak software to be released before updating. This jailbreak is for 3.1.2 but may work for iPod touch 2G 3.1.3, iPod touch 3G 3.1.3, or iPod touch first generation.

If you want to just jailbreak iPod touch 3.1.3 you can try the old jailbreak and see if it works, if not then you will need to just wait for updates here.

Note: Do no’t use Safari to download iPhone 3.1.2 IPSW files, instead use another browser. Safari downloads this as a .ZIP and iTunes is not able to recognize the firmware that way.

4. Install your preferred aplication from the blackra1n app. You have the option of choosing Cydia, Icy, or Rock. I don’t recommend you to install them all at once, because that may cause problems. Install them one at a time.

The new iPhone that is launching in June with the iPhone OS 4.0 software won’t support Adobe Flash Player. The photo above is an iPhone 4G prototype that a tech site, Gizmodo bought from someone who stole it from an Apple employee. Apple, Inc. can include Flash Player support in the new iPhone 4G, but they have chosen not to. Why has Apple chosen not to support Flash? We don’t know the exact reason, but reports are saying that it may be because Apple believes Flash Player is buggy.

Apple supports HTML 5, and they expect websites using Flash Player to switch to the new HTML 5 format. YouTube will definitely work because it supports HTML 5, but other sites like Hulu may not work unless they start converting their videos to HTML 5 format. Apple’s competitors, including Palm, and Google will have Flash Player support for their smartphones later this year. If you want Flash Player, I suggest you start looking for another phone. Apple won’t be adding Flash Player support any time soon.
