Just out of curiosity, does anyone know why Engadget didn't get an iPhone 4S to review?
They'll probably have one on Friday, that would be my guess.
Apple probably blackballed them after the whole iPhone 4 leaked episode...
My guess is they did and just haven't finished reviewing it yet
for the same reason that they don't get invites to apple events any more
isn't this gizmodo you guys are referring to?
I think there's some confusion between engadget and gizmodo here...
engadget do? you mean gizmodo
Engadget didn't leak the iPhone and they were at the Apple event. They're not blacklisted. Gizmodo is who you are thinking of.
Yeah, gizmodo "stole" the phone and got banned from apple events, not Engadget.
Engadget were at the event?
That wasn't Engadget, that was Gizmodo.
Engadget rocks .... Gizmodo sucks
I was wondering the same thing, did a google search, and found this thread
Something is definitely up because they're usually one of the first to have iPhone reviews posted.
I did notice, however, that ThisIsMyNext/The Verge had their review up -- that's where Josh Topolsky, Nilay Patel and crew went.
They don't give Apple the same treatment that other tech sites do. AllThingsD, TIMN, etc got early iPhones because they usually favorably review Apple stuff and cover Apple news extensively. The new editors at Engadget are strongly pro-Android and write many more Android articles than Apple articles now.
No, Engadget does not have a review unit. They directly stated in the iOS 5 review (released today) that they could not comment on Siri because they wouldn't have a 4S until Friday.
I just thought maybe their embargo hadn't passed yet.
Normally BGR gets a review unit too. He is VERY favourable towards Apple so if it's down to that I would have thought he'd have one.
oops. spelled gizmodo wrong. my bad.
Wade into the comments section of ANY Apple article though, and you'll see people bitching that Engadget doesn't care about any other platform but Apple. Hilarious.
No, that's Gizmodo
