A question I get asked a lot and I’m sure some of you will have been asked, too, is “why do you need an iPhone and an iPad?” The honest answer (although rarely admitted) is you don’t need both… you just want them both.
Recently I have been considering saying goodbye to my iPhone 4 and once released later this year using a 64gb WiFi 3G iPad 2 as my sole means of communication. No this is not an early April fools’ and yes, you did read that correctly: goodbye, iPhone 4.

Any of you that have been with us from the start will know that Sygic Mobile Maps was one of the first turn-by-turn apps produced for New Zealand and the first that we ever reviewed, and well… let’s just say it holds a special place in our hearts.

While we’re certain that Sygic are rolling out with the best of intentions, we don’t think it’s right. Read on for our thoughts.…Read More
If third party browsers float your boat then you’ll be pleased to hear that Opera have announced that their highly successful mobile browser, Opera Mini, will be coming to iPad. In the press release they confirmed that they’ll be bringing it to multiple platforms saying “At Mobile World Congress in Barcelona, new versions of the Opera Mini browser on Android, iPhone, J2ME, BlackBerry, Symbian and even the iPad will appear.” As of yet there is no date, they will only be showing them at MWC.
