The other day we talked about how AT&T charging for FaceTime over Cellular is consumer robbery, and today we've gotten word from Sprint that it agrees, and therefore will not be charging customers extra to use the new iOS 6 feature. When iOS 6 goes public this fall, owners of the iPhone 4, iPhone 4S, the next-generation iPhone, iPad 2, and the new iPad will all have access to FaceTime when on 3G and LTE connections. According to Sprint, it's "committed to our unlimited data, and that means not charging for data consumption based on the application." Good on them for that. Now we're just waiting on Verizon to make the same move.
We've had a bunch of leaked images of the purported next-generation iPhone (iPhone 5? iPhone 2012? The new iPhone?), and if the rumors are true, then these 3D renders that were created using the leaked images, should tell the tale of what the device will actually look like--and we think it looks fantastic. The black iPhone gets blacker, with a dark frame, while the white model maintains the chrome frame and aluminum colored back. Get a look at more of the images in our gallery. If you want the 3D model for yourself to play with in your favorite 3D program, you can grab it from Martin Hajek for $50.
