More are surfing the web on Apple iPad than Google Android!

Apple iPad have surpass Google Android on Web Surfing, more are browsing the web on iPad than Android-powered devices! This is a great achievement as iPad was out in the market for only 3 months and it have gained 0.17% of all web browser traffic tracked by Net Application! Looking at the graph, it is really impressive, so does it mean that what Steve Jobs said is right? Is iPad giving the users the best web browsing experience thus gaining so much browsing share? I think he is right, else you won’t be able to see such a great jump.

GPS Navigation Multi-Tasking in iOS 4 Demonstrated by Navigon

Navigon has been offering iPhone users turn-by-turn navigation for quite some time, but the issue is that when navigating with navigon, you will not be able to listen to the voice guidance during any phone calls. This causes problem for users who are driving and wish to talk on the phone at the same time.

With iOS 4 Multi-Tasking feature, Navigon can now navigate, and receive call at the same time, and after the call, Navigon application will automatically switch back to the foreground and resume full navigation with maps.

iOS 4 will launch on 21th of June,  3 days before the launch of iPhone 4, although most iPhone and iPod generation will be able to upgrade to iOS4, but only iPhone 3GS and iPod 3rd Generation will be able to enjoy the multi-tasking feature together with iPhone 4.

Find my iPhone App now available in Apple App Store

Find my iPhone App is now available for download in the Apple App Store! Previously this feature is found on MobileMe web interface, now they have a App for that. This App will find your iPhone, iPad or iPod Touch location if you have lost it. Owners of the iPhone/iPad/iPod Touch can log on to their MobileMe account and find the location of their device like the picture shown above.

MobileMe users not only can find their iPhone’s location, they can also Play sound on your iDevices so you can find it easier even if it is on vibration mode. Other than sending message to your device, you can also remotely lock or wipe off your data in the device to prevent anyone from using them if it is lost/stolen.

This App is free in App Store now, and can be installed on iOS 3.1.3 or later devices. But please note that this service is still limited to MobileMe users only for now, we are not sure if they will provide this service for free for the rest of the iDevices users in near future?

New iPod Touch with 2MP Camera leaked by Vietnam yet again

Our Vietnam friend Tinhte has once again leaked out new version of iPod Touch, this time finally comes with camera. This is the 3rd leaked by Vietnam site Tinhte over the period of weeks!

First it was Macbook, then iPhone now it is iPod, seems like Vietnam is really the hot area for leaks recently, might be due to Apple shifting its manufacturing place to Vietnam rather than all in China?

Back to iPod Touch, it does not only have a new 2MP Camera, it is also seen that have 64GB, although we won’t know if it is the largest model that Apple will be releasing.

Check out the Leaked Video and some of its photo:
