iPhone 4 coming to Canada and 16 other countries July 30th

iPhone 4 coming to Canada and 16 other countries July 30th

Digg this!Not much of a surprise here, but Apple has now finally revised its previous "by the end of July" iPhone 4 launch timeframe for some of the remaining international countries to a specific date: July 30th. That includes Canada, a whole host of European countries, plus Australia, New Zealand, and Hong Kong. Absent from that list, however, is South Korea, which had been among the "end of July" group, but has apparently been pushed back to an unspecified date due to a delay in receiving government approval.

iPhone 4 coming to Canada and 16 other countries July 30th originally appeared on Engadget on Fri, 16 Jul 2010 12:39:00 EDT. Please see our terms for use of feeds.

You've received either a PXT or video PXT. To view your PXT simply open the attached files, each item will be attached separately. For example, if you have received a PXT containing a picture and a text message you will have two files attached.

If your message is a PXT in most cases any media player should be able to open it. If you've received a video PXT (this will have the ending ".3gp"), or if you have received a sound or image file ending in .amr, .wbmp, .iMelody, or .gif you will need to install a special media player to play it.

In the case of .3gp, .amr or .gif files you can download QuickTime free of charge, which is compatible with both PC and Mac computers.

First Glimpse at How Google Apps Accounts will Integrate with Other Google Services

First Glimpse at How Google Apps Accounts will Integrate with Other Google Services

Gina Trapani points to a Google Accounts Help page that explains part of how Google will allow Google Apps users to access Google services such as Voice, Reader, Buzz and Analytics with their Google Apps accounts. At present, users must maintain a separate Google account to access services that aren't part of Google Apps. Google has previously announced this coming functionality, but this is the first indication of how it will work in practice.


Based on the help page, it appears that rather than allowing Google Apps users to import their regular Google Accounts into their Google Apps accounts, the company will simply allow the use of Google Apps e-mail addresses as logins for other Google services.

Users who created a regular Google Account using their Google Apps e-mail address would have a conflict, but Google already has a solution: users who use their Google Apps e-mail addresses for Google Accounts will be able to access their existing Google Accounts using an new, automatically created e-mail address in the form of ""

Trapani laments the lack of a way to merge Google Apps accounts and regular Google Accounts, but notes that it is possible to export data from most Google services, and move Google Voice accounts from one Google Account to another, so consolidation of accounts will be possible.

The changes haven't been officially rolled out yet, but businesses can sign-up to to be testers here.
