Question by Marko: How come apple only sells the iPad 2 when the newest iPad is the 4(other than the mini) ? I got a iPad 2 for Christmas and it was the only one available at the apple store, how come I hear the newest iPad is the 4 when apple only sells the iPad 2 and the mini on their website and in their stores?
Answer by AndrewIt’s not that they only sell the iPad 2, It’s that it’s cheaper and probably the only one available in time

Microsoft’s $ 999 128GB Surface Pro has sold out in the online Microsoft Store in the U.S. (via WinBeta), just a few hours after going on sale today, February 9. The 64GB version is still available as of this writing, and the Surface Pro is still likely in stock at physical retail locations like Best Buy, where it also went on sale today, although checking the stock levels via their online tool reports the Surface Pro as “Unavailable” across the board.
The Surface Pro is Microsoft’s more powerful, Intel-powered Windows 8 tablet, which runs the full version of Windows 8 unlike the Surface RT and can handle full-fledged Windows desktop applications. In the TC review, John Biggs said that the Pro was a much more compelling device than the RT, in part because of its ability to run software that enterprise IT departments depend upon from legacy windows installations.
The Surface RT sold out of the $ 500 32GB model within one day, but the Pro’s more expensive model has sold out even faster. That could indicate that users are placing a higher value on storage with the Pro, which is marketed as a device much more suited to getting serious work done than the Surface RT. The 64GB model remains in stock for now, and given that there’s only $ 100 price difference to trade up to double the storage capacity with the 128GB version, that’s not surprising.
Storage was recently the subject of a number of back-and-forth reports regarding the Surface, with some claiming Microsoft left little room on-device for personal files once you accounted for the Windows 8 OS install. Ed Bott reported earlier todays on the actual storage numbers, which beat the original estimates by a fair amount, but the free space on the 64GB version still represents a 200 percent increase from the actual usable space on the base Surface Pro model.
The 128GB Surface Pro is still available to order from the Microsoft Store online in Canada as of this publication date, and you may still be able to grab one by visiting a physical retail location.

They grow up so fast, don’t they? It was almost six years ago that we saw Ford SYNC step into the world, and the automaker has just handed the keys to the owner of the 5-millionth SYNC-capable vehicle. While we haven’t been told what model had the distinction, the milestone represents another million SYNC cars, SUVs and trucks than we saw in May last year. The most striking aspect between then and now may just be the shift in focus (pun entirely intended) — where we started off just happy to hook up our Zunes in a world of CD changers, we’re only content today if we can control seemingly every mobile app known to humanity through a touchscreen. Ford might not want to look too fondly at its rear-view mirror, however, lest an abundance of technology-laden competition close in too quickly.
Apple has just announced that the iPad mini and 4th generation iPad, both of which debuted on October 23 in San Francisco, have just topped 3 million sales in 3 days.
The smaller, lighter tablet had been rumored for years, yet its arrival was somewhat overshadowed by Hurricane Sandy devastating the North East. And the 4th gen iPad came as a bit of a surprise, though it was also rumored prior to launch.
On the November 2 launch date, a week after pre-orders began, lines weren’t quite as long as they have been for other Apple products, despite having two new models on sale.
Still, Apple has managed to sell a whopping 3 million of both devices in a very short period of time. For reference, Asus has said that the company sells around 1 million Nexus 7 tablets per month.
At the same time, this isn’t exactly the level of opening day, weekend, or week sales we usually see out of Apple. Apple’s 3rd generation iPad, however, sold 3 million on its own during its opening weekend last March, so this time around two separate device lines are splitting the same number of sales. The iPhone 5 had 2 million pre-orders in 24 hours, and sold 5 million in the first weekend.
Apple likely won’t break out sales by device type, but we’ll see if analysts or supply chain information provides a better breakdown.Related Posts:
Sprint’s latest financials show that while the network is slowly stemming the flow of cash from its veins, it’s not quite there in terms of turning a profit. The country’s third biggest carrier has suffered a $ 767 million net loss and an operating loss of $ 231 million — much less than the $ 629 million operating loss it suffered in Q2, and about on-par with the loss it ate in the same period last year. The business did manage to bring in total revenues of $ 8.8 billion, but had to take the hit on a $ 397 million write-down on costs related to Network Vision and the continued pain of the Nextel shutdown.
On the customer side, it added a further 900,000 users, sold 1.5 million iPhones and a further 1 million “LTE smartphones” in the three month period. However, its churn rate has increased to 1.88 percent, up from 1.69 percent in Q2, but the network did manage to coax 59 percent of former Nextel customers to stay tied up with Big Yellow. While it’s hardly a rosy estimation of Sprint’s finances, this report doesn’t take into account Softbank’s $ 20.1 billion buy-out or that it’s regained a controlling stake in Clearwire — which means that the next time we take a look through the spreadsheets, we might find some more exciting news.
Apple broke records again opening weekend, with the iPhone 5 selling more than 5M in its first three days, compared to 4M for the iPhone 4S.
The iPhone-maker also announced that demand for the iPhone 5 far exceeded the initial supply, which is likely the only reason why opening weekend sales didn’t cross into the 6- to 10 million range some were predicting. Still the number is impressive, and reflects strong pre-order performance, which Apple said topped 2 million in the first 24 hours.
Apple also announced that 100 million iOS devices have been updated to iOS 6, an amazing rate of adoption, considering that the company has sold just north of 400 million, according to its own numbers released earlier this month. We saw a lot of evidence that adoption was very high, very early on after the release of iOS 6, but Apple’s official totals really drive home just how many eagerly pushed that update button in the first week.Related Posts:
Google Play quietly updated its device availability page over the weekend, making the Nexus 7 available to Germany, France and Spain. Patient Europeans can now pick up Mountain View’s seven-inch wonderkind’s 8GB and 16GB models for €199 and €249, respectively. Conversion rates comparatively price the slate at about $ 248 and $ 311, meaning the new markets will have to suffer a small premium for the slate. Worse still, is that not all of Google Play’s services are available worldwide, with both Play Music and Magazines retaining US exclusivity. If you can bear with the inconveniences, however, one fine little tablet awaits.
Vizio quietly posted that it sold out the Vizio Co-Star Stream Player pre-order in the first 12 hours that it was available.
The Co-Star, a cent shy of $ 100, uses Google TV and turns “any HDTV into the ultimate smart TV,” merging live TV and streaming entertainment, with apps and full-screen Web browsing.
You can watch a commercial for the Co-Star Stream Player, complete with the world’s most annoying soundtrack, here:Related Posts:
For months we’ve been waiting on Razer’s Blade notebook, a $ 2800, 17-inch beast that we weren’t sure whether to laud or mock. It’s just that it’s kind of a strange thing to see making a big debut when people are more cautious than usual with their money, and PC gaming (as ever) is being declared dead. But after our hands-on at CES, we were convinced that it was at the very least impressive and well-built, and apparently enough other people thought so that Razer sold out almost immediately.
Now, the actual number sold isn’t mentioned, but Razer isn’t a small company and they were going all-out with this thing at CES. But we’ve seen devices launch to sales of dozens, so a strong response to a launch like this is definitely good news.
The company shared the news on their Facebook page, and urges prospective buyers to sign up for a notification email list. Hopefully that $ 2800 won’t burn a hole in your pocket in the meantime.
Personally, I’m more excited about their plans to disconnect the touchscreen and LCD keys from the laptop, making a customizable piece of hardware you can use with your existing PC. I’m not really down with the small-screen gaming and I like my keyboards a little meatier, so the Blade isn’t for me — but I do have gear envy when I see all those future toys on the side.
