  1. Apple’s iPad 5th gen to reportedly debut after iPhone 5S and have rear mic

      The speculation related to Apple’s next series of devices is slowly starting to gain steam, and will presumably reach a fever pitch as the next few months pass by. Apple Insider has cited a report from the prominent Japanese Apple watcher website Macotakara in which the iPad 5 (or the 5th gen iPad as Apple is likely to call it) is unsurprisingly being expected to release in late 2013, but apparently its launch will be preceded by what Macotakara calls the iPhone 5S. Moreover, the upcoming iPad 5th gen is expected to feature a rear mic as well.             Continue reading →
  2. Can HTC’s new tablets challenge the iPad?

    HTC’s previous foray into the tablet market was unsuccessful to say the least. The HTC Flyer was an Android based tablet which failed to impress anyone.

  3. US Patent and Trademark Office denies Apple trademark for iPad Mini

    The United States Patent and Trademark Office has denied Apple’s application for getting a trademark on the trade name ‘iPad Mini’.

  4. Windows 8 certification rules get changed: Microsoft may have the iPad Mini in its crosshairs

    Windows 8 is an incredibly ambitious attempt made by Microsoft to alter the way its ubiquitous operating system works on a very radical level. The tile based UI is explicitly geared towards touch based devices such as tablets, while also bringing something new to the table in terms of user experience, as opposed to what’s seen in iOS and Android. Regardless, the OS hasn’t had it easy since its launch, with various bugs and missing features being a common theme among the complaints that users have had with Windows 8, and with Microsoft’s own Surface tablets especially. Nevertheless, the Redmond giant may have decided to stop targeting the full sized iPad, as its restrictive Windows 8 certification rules have been relaxed to allow smaller screen tablets, i.e. tablets with dimensions similar to those of the iPad Mini.         Continue reading →
  5. Apple takes Samsung feud to the next level – hire Innolux to make iPad Mini displays

    Samsung and Apple have been fighting a bitter and protracted legal battle in courts the world over, as they happen to compete in just about every segment of the tech world – especially phones and tablets. But the entire ground on which their antagonistic relationship is based has been queered by the fact that Samsung is the largest manufacturer of individual parts and components used in Apple products.   This strangely symbiotic relationship has mystified a great number of people, but it has ultimately benefited Samsung heavily, as it has been able to use economies of scale brought about by its huge Apple contracts in order to push forward with its own aggressive approaches to the Android smartphone and tablet markets.   Apple however may just be trying to move away from its dependence on Samsung, however. They are reportedly dropping Samsung and hiring a Taiwanese firm called Innolux for making iPad Mini displays.     Continue reading →
