So here's the thing: spending some time recently with an iPad, Android phones and reading the new iPhone 4 specs, I'm under the impression the iPhone days as the number one smartphone in the world may be numbered: Android, not the most fascinating phone OS in my opinion, is improving and very fast, while iPhone 4 looks promising but not a game changer.

Still, the recent events made me go back to my iPhone 3G and hack the hell out of it to support multi-tasking, today screen (using LockInfo), host some cool new soccer games and thumbnails view of the home screen. Cool.

Here are a few tricks you may not know your iPhone can do (even if it's not jailbroken):

  1. Double click on the space-bar button will actually write a period (exists also for BlackBerry)
  2. Click and hold a link to see the site name and full url.
  3. Hold the home button and click the sleep button to take a screenshot of your current window
  4. Press and hold an image inside a website to download it
  5. While saving a bookmark – the page location and content you have when you click on the bookmark button will actually become the shortcut icon – so you can actually control how the bookmark icon will look like

Just squeeze the microphone together, and the button gets pressed.

They can make up their ventures if they have the insights of the business model they are trying to make. It is always recommended to conduct enough market research before starting any ventures. Otherwise, it is quite easy to face setbacks and financial losses. Nokia X6
