Grand Theft Auto got ported to the iPhone and iPod touch only a few months back. Chinatown Wars, a GTA series was developed specifically for small screen devices and GTA made its entry to the App store with it. The App is a blast and playing it is super fun.

These facts already make us somewhat sure that Apple is going to announce its iPhone 4G at Worldwide Developers Conference (WWDC), to be held from June 7-11 at San Francisco. Need some more proof? Walmart has reduced the price of iPhone 3GS to $97. Looks like a clearance sale to make way for the new product. The 100$ price drop almost confirms the arrival of an iPhone from Apple.

Standard Chartered is now giving its employees an option to choose between Blackberry and iPhone.
The bank earlier gave all its employees a Blackberry, but now they do have a choice to make. This move would make a lot of bankers Apple customers and gives the iPhone a larger market share. “It’s a group-wide initiative involving wholesale and consumer banks globally” said a spokeswoman for Standard Chartered.
Many other banks globally such as HSBC and Morgan Stanley have also repeatedly resisted Blackberry. With Unified Mailbox coming to iPhone with iPhone OS 4.0, it would definitely attract a lot of users and force some to make the switch.
Well if this trend catches up on an exponential rate and spreads across other sectors, Apple would be getting what it is aiming at – capturing the RIM market.
