After Sony announced they would be holding an event on 9th December (possibly to reveal the Playstation phone) it seems Apple also feel the need to announce something on the very same day. If the rumours are true then this Thursday could be the day iOS 4.3 is revealed to the world bringing an improved app store with new subscription based apps.
A number of app based magazine, publications and newspapers have revealed that they will be bringing out new subscription based versions of their apps before Christmas. This is a major change from the current 4.2 iOS that only allows single app payments. An indication that iOS will land in the very near future – perhaps on 9th December.
Big noises are being made by the Guardian, a well established newspaper that also has a very successful iPhone and iPad app. The Guardian Page says “A new and improved version of our award-winning iPhone app will be released soon.” The page also details new subscription prices of £2.99 for a six month subscription and £3.99 for 12 months.
Other brands that could benefit include T3, The Times, Stuff, FHM and more. So make sure you check back on 9th December as Apple and Sony both make the announcements – we could see iOS 4.3 and the ‘Playstation Phone’ on the same day.
Are you looking forward to the announcements and do you think they will be about the above?
