iPhone Carabiner Clip – make your iPhone easy to access

An simple but userfull accessory for your iPhone appears on photojojo website. The name of this is iPhone Carabiner Clip and was specifically designed to access the phone quickly if you want to do a photo or video.

 

If Batman were an iPhoneographer, he’d have an ingenious way to keep his camera phone primed for crime fighting.

It may not save Gotham (yet), but the iPhone Carabiner Clip is a slick tool straight from Bruce Wayne’s utility belt.

It gives you uber-quick access to your iPhone by letting you latch it onto a belt buckle, camera bag or purse. The Clip comes on a lustrous leather strap that’s built to take on heavy iPhone use.

Just secure it to the bottom of your phone with two included screws. Attaching it won’t alter your phone in any way, and you can remove it whenever you want.

Much like Batman himself, the carabiner pulls double duty! Use it to hold your cell lenses, clip to a camera strap or hang your keys.

Its sultry shade of black is a perfect complement to the bat ears and body armor – not to mention all that mysterious brooding.

This accessory work with iPhone 4 and 4S and can be shipped for only $30. If you are interested to buy one iPhone Carabiner Clip you can make an order on photojojo.com.

Check out the difference of video quality between Nokia N8 and iPhone 4

Nokia N8 vs iPhone 4Before to hit up those two videos below, let’s compare a little the features between these two smartphones.

Well, Nokia N8 is the latest N-series phone with Symbian OS and features a 12 megapixels camera with Xenon Flash and Carl Zeiss optics capable to record HD video at 25 fps, while, the latest iPhone 4 features a 5 megapixels camera with LED flash, capable to record HD video 720p.

iOS 4.1 software update available on 8 September

iOS 4.1 software updateApple’s UK announced that the iOS 4.1 software update will become available starting this Wednesday, on 8 September.

And these are really some good news, because we started to hate that “coming soon” message. And this isn’t the only thing it’s gonna take place on 8 September, also, the new iPod Touch will become available.

So, what this update has to bring? Well some new enhancements are expected, like the Game Center that enables multiplayer gaming for iPhone and iPod Touch users and offers APIs auto-matching opponents and tracking achievements for developers. iOS 4.1 update also brings TV show rentals, HDR photography support  and HD video uploads. With the refined AVRCP support and Bluetooth you will be able to control the audio via wireless.

Excessive slowdown is eliminated with this new update for iPhone 3G users and the iPhone 4 users should see some improvements and corrections to the sensitive proximity sensor.

The iOS 4.1 software update will be available for iPhone and iPod and the iPad will have to wait a little longer, until November to enjoy the iOS 4.2 update.

The battle: Windows Phone 7 vs Nexus One and iPhone 4

Windows Phone 7 vs iPhone 4 vs Nexus OneThese are the three competitors of this post. So, who do you thing it’s going to win the fight? Windows Phone 7, iPhone 4 or Nexus One. Well, we have a video prepared with these three devices to see who will win.

The idea of the battle is which of those three will do a complete page load in a minimum time.

The final result puts Windows Phone 7 on the first place followed by iPhone 4 and Nexus One. But we can’t say that was a clear victory because as you can see, the difference between all of these three devices on all tests was very little.
