By the first of November, Apple’s two new iPhones will be available in over 60 countries. The company has just announced the arrival dates of the iPhone 5c and the iPhone 5s for a few dozen countries across four continents. Here’s the list of countries that are getting the iPhone 5s and iPhone 5c on Friday, October 25th: Austria, Belgium, Bulgaria, Croatia, Czech Republic, Denmark, Estonia, Finland, French West Indies, Greece, Hungary, Ireland, Italy, Latvia, Liechtenstein, Lithuania, Luxembourg, Macau, Malta, Netherlands, New Zealand, Norway, Poland, Portugal, Reunion Island, Romania, Russia, Slovakia, Slovenia, South Korea, Spain, Sweden, Switzerland, Taiwan and Thailand. And here are the countries that are getting them on November 1st: Albania, Armenia, Bahrain, Colombia, El Salvador, Guam, Guatemala, India, Macedonia, Malaysia, Mexico, Moldova, Montenegro, Saudi Arabia, Turkey and UAE. The iPhone 5s comes in gold, silver and space gray and costs $199 for the 16GB model, $299 for the 32GB model, and $399 for the 64GB model. The cheaper iPhone 5c comes in blue, green, pink, yellow and white and runs $99 for the 16GB model and $199 for the 32GB model (there is no 64GB iPhone 5c). Of course, these prices are only applicable with contracts.

Uncharted PlaySOCCKET shining light on a student doing his homework. Nov. 12 - 13, 2013 San Francisco, CA Tickets On Sale Now Jessica Matthews is bringing clean energy to the world, one sport at a time. Matthews is the founder of Uncharted Play, a startup making sports equipment that generates energy as you play. “We are organized around one simple mission — to inspire people around the world to lead playful lives and foster their well-being,” Matthews said in an interview with VentureBeat. “Life brings up all these distractions and it is the job of businesses to design products that make it easier for people to do good. Recycling is annoying, and a solar panel won’t inspire kids to take something apart and put it back together. What we do is put utility into the most loved sport around the world.” Uncharted Play’s first product is the SOCCKET, an energy-harnessing soccer ball. A pendulum-like mechanism in the ball captures kinetic energy and stores it in the ball for later use as an off-the-grid power source. 30 minutes of play can power a simple LED lamp for three-hours. Millions of people in the developing world lack access to clean, safe, and affordable electricity. Power is unreliable and often comes from dangerous sources, like diesel generators or kerosene lamps. Matthews’ family is from Nigeria. On a visit in 2008, she saw how expensive power was, and how many families struggled to afford their utility needs. Lack of light makes it extremely difficult for students to do their homework or families to finish chores at night. At the same time, the kids love playing soccer — they play at home, at school, in the streets, alone, with friends, in the morning, in the afternoon, and anytime and anywhere in between. Matthews wondered if there was a way to harness that joyful energy into actual energy. “Parents want their kids to play, and this is even more important in the developing world, in cultures where people are all about being jovial and loving life, while recognizing that things aren’t great,” Matthews said. “We give them a win-win-win that not only addresses an issue, but inspires them to think and discuss. And the kids get to play more.” Matthews was an undergrad at Harvard at the time. She and cofounder Julia Silverman built the prototype of SOCCKET as part of a class project. They realized the opportunity was much greater and founded Uncharted Play in 2011 in New York City. SOCCKET weighs 17 oz, which is only 1 oz more than a normal soccer ball. It is airless, “deflation-proof,” and has a water resistant shell. It has a 6 watt output, which is capable of powering an LED lamp for more than 72 hours. It also has an adapter to charge an iPhone. So far the product has been tested in South Africa, Mexico, Brazil, El Salvador, Honduras, Costa Rica, Nigeria, Tanzania, and a few places around the U.S.. Matthews aims to spread Uncharted Play products around the world, and is brimming with ideas for the future. The soccer ball is the first product and the jumprope is “almost ready.” The jumprope will hold 4 times as much power as the SOCCKET, and 15 minutes of jumping can provide 6 hours of LED light. Uncharted Play is also working on an American football and a skateboard. It is a for-profit company, and works with corporate sponsors and partners such as Western Union to make money. Uncharted Play also works with NGOs to manage distribution on the ground in developing countries, where the products are free. Matthews is a strong believer in for-profit social enterprises, and thinks some day all companies will become social enterprises and impact companies. “To create the best products, you have to be part of economy,” she said. “It forces you to make changes that make people want to buy your products. The only way to have a sustainable company is to have real and honest respect for your customers, thi

iPhone 5s Arriving in Over 50 More Countries Starting Later This Month is a post by Craig Lloyd from Gotta Be Mobile.Starting later this month, Apple will be launching the iPhone 5s and iPhone 5c in over 50 more countries, including Italy, Russia and Spain, with several more countries getting the new devices at the beginning of November, including India and Mexico. This will be the first big post-launch release of the new iPhones since they were initially launched last month on September 20. On October 25, the iPhone 5s and iPhone 5c will arrive in Austria, Belgium, Bulgaria, Croatia, Czech Republic, Denmark, Estonia, Finland, French West Indies, Greece, Hungary, Ireland, Italy, Latvia, Liechtenstein, Lithuania, Luxembourg, Macau, Malta, Netherlands, New Zealand, Norway, Poland, Portugal, Reunion Island, Romania, Russia, Slovakia, Slovenia, South Korea, Spain, Sweden, Switzerland, Taiwan and Thailand. On November 1, the iPhone 5s and iPhone 5c will launch in Albania, Armenia, Bahrain, Colombia, El Salvador, Guam, Guatemala, India, Macedonia, Malaysia, Mexico, Moldova, Montenegro, Saudi Arabia, Turkey and UAE. This will put Apple in line for reaching its target of 100 countries by the end of the year. Currently, both new iPhones are available in the US, Australia, Canada, China, France, Germany, Hong Kong, Japan, Puerto Rico, Singapore and the UK. This expansion of iPhone availability certainly isn’t surprising, and the timeline is comparable to last year’s rollout of the iPhone 5. Apple hasn’t announced pricing for the new iPhones in these additional countries, so you’ll have to check with your local Apple store in your country to find out how much a new iPhone will cost you. In the US, the iPhone 5s starts at $199, with the iPhone 5c starting at $99 when you sign a new two-year contract. However, if you’re okay with buying the new devices from a third-party, many retailers and carriers are discounting the new iPhones, with the iPhone 5c getting the most attention. Best Buy, RadioShack and Walmart have all chopped $50 off the price of the iPhone 5c, letting customers get the new phone for as low as $45; that’s pocket change to a lot of consumers. During opening weekend alone, Apple claims to have sold nine million iPhones during the three-day period, almost doubling sales of the iPhone 5. Of course, there are two new iPhones this time around, and Apple hasn’t disclosed which model sold how many units, and we’ll most likely never know officially. However, many analysts are arguing that these numbers are inflated, saying that Apple is counting the units that were shipped to retailers and carrier stores, but perhaps weren’t actually sold to consumers. Nonetheless, more people will be able to get a hold of the new iPhones come later this month, resulting in even more sales for the Cupertino-based company. It’ll be making its quarterly earnings call on October 28, but we’re not sure if the company will include sales of the October 25 launch.iPhone 5s Arriving in Over 50 More Countries Starting Later This Month is a post by Craig Lloyd from Gotta Be Mobile.
