You probably won’t get vouchers let alone an iPhone
We’re not exactly sure what the point behind this scam is but we’re 100 per cent positive you won’t get a free iPhone out of it. A reader calling himself Jami Hermann left a comment for us here on GoMo News claiming that he’d found a totally free means of obtaining an iPhone 3 for free. He provided a URL for his ‘web site’ but actually it point at a YouTube video here. The video – made by one Steve Aoki is entitled ‘Cheap Iphone 3 | How to Legally Get a cheap Iphone 3′. The graphic accompanying the video, promises the chance to test and keep an iPhone 5 not an iPhone 3. If you do bother to try this, like us you’ll probably just end up on a voucher site.

Okay. We’re winding you up it’s just an iPhone 5 accessory
When GoMo News first spotted the photo (left), we really thought it might have something to do with the much-rumoured Apple iWatch. After all, the Cupertino based supplier really does need to come out with a new product line fast. However, it turns out to be simply a high quality timepiece for the iPhone 5 – made by the PTB Design Corporation in Vancouver, Canada. The firm appears to use the brand name Bissol to make it sounds luxurious. Actually, the product name is Calibre 788. Just don’t try to buy one just yet. Continue reading

Foxconn, the Taiwanese manufacturer and major supplier of iPhones, has revealed that 2013 Q1 sales have fallen by almost a fifth due to weaker than expected demand for Apple’s flagship device. The company, listed as Hon Hai Precision Industry, relies on Apple for 60 to 70 per cent of its revenues but has been hit by disappointing sales for the latest iPhone. It says revenues are 19 per cent down year-on-year to 808.97 billion Taiwanese dollars (£17.6 billion) in the three-month period. Continue reading
South Korean giant Samsung Electronics is indicating that Q1 sales are likely to be stronger than expected, as it pushes deeper into emerging markets with lower-end smartphones.
Unlike arch rival Apple which offers a single high-end model, the iPhone, Samsung offers more than 30 covering virtually all segments of the smartphone market.
Analysts estimate that the electronics giant sold up to 70 million smartphones in the January-March period, up from 63 million the previous quarter, while Apple’s iPhone shipments are thought to have slid by nearly a third to around the 30 million mark. Continue reading
Rating: In-car apps emerging as new sector
An indication of how a whole new sector could be opening up in the mobile apps market has been provided by Glympse which has just partners with BMW and Mini to provide in-car location sharing. Drivers will simply plug in their iPhone and the custom BMW UI shows up on the in-car dash.
