Xiaomi unveils its first tablet, the 7.9″ MiPad with Retina Display and iPhone 5C-like colors

Today Xiaomi has made its first step into the tablet market. After releasing quite a few smartphones and dabbling in rather diverse spaces such as TVs and wireless routers, Xiaomi took the wraps off of its first tablet, the MiPad. This is basically the Chinese company’s own competitor to the iPad Mini with Retina Display from Apple. If the name itself isn’t proof enough, know that the MiPad has the exact same screen size...

iPhone 6 coming in August, earlier than previously thought

With all this talk about the LG G3, HTC One Mini 2, and a possible premium version of the Samsung Galaxy S5, it’s easy to forget that Apple will also announce new smartphones later this year. So far the rumors on the matter have focused on telling us that Apple will release two new iPhones, either both this year, or one being pushed to 2015. One of those, many previous leaks claimed, would have a 4.7-inch screen, and the other...

iPhone 5S now just $99.99 with contract, or even free with trade-in

Many Android-powered smartphones see hefty discounts at third-party retailers, some even days after they launch. It’s not unusual to find such a company selling an Android device for half of what carriers are asking for it. But things are and always have been different when it comes to iPhones. They’re usually not ever seen on sale at anything other than the recommended price – which, for the current flagship, is...

iPad 4 replaces iPad 2 as Apple’s cheap 10″ tablet, 8 GB iPhone 5C launched

Apple has launched an 8 GB version of the iPhone 5C in Europe, China, and Australia – and perhaps even more places, but, interestingly, not the US. At least not yet. This is now obviously the cheapest iPhone of the models launched last year, though it’s anything but cheap. If you’re in the UK, for example, and want to get an 8 GB iPhone 5C unlocked you’ll need to pay £429 for the privilege. That’s £40...

Apple’s next iPhones will look like both the iPhone 5C and the 7th-gen iPod Nano, iOS 8 details leak

This year, Apple has long been rumored to launch two new iPhones, both of them larger than any handset the company has released before. This would make a lot of sense, seeing as how the Android world has moved towards 5-inch smartphones being the new norm at the high-end space, while Apple’s current iPhones only have 4-inch screens. That said, Apple has resisted dramatic changes for its mobile devices many times before, so...

Apple wants to sell 90 million iPhone 6 units. 3 million iPhone 5C handsets are now in inventory

Apple has high hopes for its next iPhone, it seems. The company is reported to have ordered no less than 90 million iPhone 6 units from its manufacturing partner Foxconn. This comes from an analyst at Citigroup Global Markets, who was quoted by the Chinese-language Commercial Times in Taiwan. This info was then picked up by DigiTimes, the Taiwan-based source for rumors and speculation originating in the “upstream supply...

TSMC starts making A8 processors for Apple’s next iPhone

According to sources in Taiwan, TSMC has already started producing A8 processors for use in Apple’s next-generation mobile devices, presumably the iPhone 6 as well as possible new iPads to be unveiled later this year. Despite the fact that production for the new chipsets has started so early, Apple isn’t expected to make its new wares official before the third quarter of the year (which starts in July and ends in...

iPhone 6 to come in two sizes in September

These days, most leaks are about the Samsung Galaxy S5. That’s understandable, since the handset is due to be announced in less than two weeks. However, you may be craving some iPhone-related rumors – if so, this is for you. Not that we haven’t already heard a myriad of scenarios for the iPhone 6, mind you. But here’s a new one. Apparently Apple will go the way of Oppo and release two versions of the iPhone 6....

New iPhones with larger screens ‘confirmed’ by yet another report

A bigger iPhone has been rumored for many years, and we got that in the form of the iPhone 5 (and its successors, the 5S and 5C, obviously). But in the past couple of years, the mobile world has become even more enamored with big smartphone screens. After all, a year before Apple finally decided to go beyond 3.5 inches, Samsung was unveiling the 5.3-inch original Galaxy Note that changed everything (after being laughed at by many for...

Apple may start 4.7” iPhone 6 mass production in May, lauch in June. 5.7” iPhone scheduled for later

Apple may launch 4.7” iPhone 6 this summer, with bigger 5.7” version coming later this fall. According to Chinese analyst Sun Chyang Xu, who was pretty spot on about Google X phone developments last year, Apple may start the trial production of 4.7” iPhone 6 as early as next month. Then, if things go as planned, it will begin a full scale mass production in May. Which is about right for iPhone 6 announcement during Apple WWDC...
