The 6th generation iPhone rumours have continued to be written ever since the iPhone 4S launched. One of the big changes, other than a change of dock connector, is that the device might include a larger 4 inch screen. On all iPhone models Apple has opted for a 3.5 inch screen, but rumours have strongly suggested that Apple will break away and opt for a larger screen.
A new Wifi version of the Galaxy S has been announced by Samsung. The new device is called the Galaxy S Wifi 4.2 and comes with a 4.2 inch screen that uses IPS TFT technology and has a WVGA resolution.
Apple [AAPL] has issued a recall for the first gen iPod nano. The reason for it is due to problems with the device that in some very rare cases had problems with overheating. Batteries and heat don’t go together too well often causing explosions. Apple seems to have made the best choice here although the original nano came out five years ago.
Spotify is in the process of rolling out a new service to regular iPod users. This includes those with an iPod classic, iPod nano and iPod shuffle which will see each of the devices capable of being connected up to the Spotify app on the PC or Mac. Once connected with the regular 30 pin connector, the iPod will show up in a new Devices section.
With that connection, you can now sync across to your iPod any tracks that you own. You also have the ability to download tracks or/and complete playlists that you have saved. The pricing drops to as low as 50p per track in the UK depending on how many MP3’s you purchase.
The iPod nano is currently in its sixth generation. Most of the previous generations have seen changes to the design, with the 6th gen shrinking the unit right down and putting a touchscreen on the front of it.
We see today that Apple [AAPL], is working on a new seventh generation model that keeps the same form factor as the 6th gen model. The main difference though is that it looks like it will get a camera on the back, and perhaps on the front. The leaked image (larger version below), shows what looks to be the 6th gen device but with a camera hole cut out of the top right of the unit. [Read more…]

Apple [AAPL] is holding and event today It appears that the “Exciting Announcement” made mention of yesterday by Apple [AAPL], is indeed the introduction to the Beatles landing in the iTunes music store.
Apple [AAPL] seems to have sent out a letter to music labels informing them music clips in iTunes will now jump from 30 seconds to 90 seconds in length. This policy applies to those songs that are over 2 minutes 30 seconds in length. Any tune shorter than that will continue to have a 30 second sample available.
We are pleased to let you know that we are preparing to increase the length of music previews from 30 seconds to 90 seconds on the iTunes Store in the United States. We believe that giving potential customers more time to listen to your music will lead to more purchases.
