Clearwire has unveiled a new mobile 4G hotspot called the iSpot that was designed specifically for Apple devices like the iPhone and iPad. The device supports eight WiFi connections at a time and will sell for $99.99 with service at $25 monthly with no contract.
Validas says that its data shows that iPhone users are more likely to get huge wireless bills and suffer from bill shock than Verizon users. The company claims that 6% of iPhone users see bills for $200 or more monthly and under 5% of Verizon users see bills that high. Over 1% of iPhone users reportedly get a bill of $500 or more monthly for a single phone.
McAfee Labs worries that the PDF exploit that is used for remotely jailbreaking the iPhone will be exploited for nefarious uses. The crux of the issue is that if the PDF flaw can be used for an unlock just by hitting a website, it could be used by hackers to take control of the device.
