AT&T and Apple sued for misleading MMS marketing

Iphone
Great Ceasar’s ghost! A woman in Ohio is charging the double-As for breach of contract for… mum… not supplying MMS with the 3.0 firmware.

She writes in the lawsuit:

“Millions of customers, as a result of the false and deceptive representations and concealments of Apple and AT&T purchased the 3G and 3GS, waiting for the wonderful day in June 2009 when the new application would be available which would allow MMS,” the court filing states. “Unfortunately, after downloading the new 3.0 Software Update application, MMS still did not work on both the 3G and 3GS.”

While the lawsuit is clearly batshit insane, the plaintiff, Deborah Carr, does have a point: we were supposed to get MMS in late summer and summer, according to WWDC and they’ll release MMS when they damn well feel like it – but it’s nice to see someone holding good old arbitrary Apple to some of its PR claims.

NOKIA N900 TABLET RUNS MAEMO, RUNS FLASH, LIKES MONEY

N900

Nokia’s N900, a well-heeled angle on the shaky “mobile internet device” category, shall run Maemo 5, a cut of linux intended for heavy internet use. At 800 pixels wide, the display will better cellphones at showing web-pages, and high-end features abound: there’s a 5 megapixel camera, a slide-out QWERTY keyboard, Flash compatibility, 32GB of storage, GPS and TV-out. Such a shame it isn’t a cellphone! Update: It is a cellphone! Damn!
Furthermore, at 500 Euros, it’ll have to justify itself as a “netbook replacement” for those not already fond of Nokia’s past lineup of internet tablets.
