Tech Updates: Playboy iPhone App Skips Nudity, Phablets Might Be a Fad

Playboy has a new iPhone app but there is one key feature of the magazine you won’t find in the digital version – nudity.

Apple doesn’t allow it in the App store so Playboy is leaving it out. The app features articles on food, travel, clothes and more. There are still plenty of pictures, they just leave more to the imagination.

Playboy for iPhone is available now in the App store. The download is free but to get the “exclusive” content you’ll have to pay $1.99 a month or $19.99 a year.

A mobile analytic company called Flurry says Phablets might be a fad. You’ve seen them advertised – they are the super-sized phones with extra-large screens that sort of look like a cross between a smartphone and a tablet.

Samsung makes one called the Galaxy Note II with a 5.5″ screen while Huawei pushes the limits even further with the Ascend Mate – the screen measures 6.1″.

Flurry says out of 1 billion devices in use worldwide – and some 2,000 different models – only about 4% of people use a so-called phablet. The majority of users have phones that fall in the range of about 3.5-4.9″ screens – and yes, the iPhone is right in the middle there.
