  • Apple iPad Mini Review - More than just a Mini

    Apple iPad Mini Review - More than just a Mini

    Usually when a tech device like a smartphone or a tablet is called a Mini, it means that it is a cut down or lower-end version of the main device that it takes it's name from. This seems to be the general feeling that most users get before thinking about getting the Apple iPad Mini. However, they couldn't be further from the truth as this little 7.9-inch tablet packs in a whole bunch of features within a just as excellently designed casing as the original Apple iPad. If you liked the cellular version of the Apple iPad then you also may like the cellular version of the Apple iPad Mini, but is it the tablet for you? Read on and find out in our review of the Apple iPad Mini.

    Apple Event in China, leaked video compares iPad 4 and iPad 5

    Apple has released invitations for a possible reveal event on 10 September 2013 for the US, but has also released invitations for an event in China on 11 September 2013. Other invitations were also sent out for Japan and Germany. All invitations feature the same colourful dot design but rumours are that the China version event may show off theApple iPad 5 as a new video showing off the iPad 5 parts compared to the Apple iPad 4 has surfaced. The video shows what we've been guessing for quite some time now, that the iPad 5 will feature a more iPad Mini look with narrower bezels and thinner design.

  • Rumours: Apple iPad 5 supposedly more compact and has less side bezel

    Rumours: Apple iPad 5 supposedly more compact and has less side bezel

    This isn't the first time we've heard about the next Apple iPad or Apple iPad 5 having a more compact and narrow look nor is it the first time we've seen the Apple iPad Mini like front panel. However, these new pics show the front panel with much better lighting and not in the dark nor is it too blurry to actually see. These slightly clearer pics confirm what we saw earlier, a more Apple iPad mini like look for the Apple iPad 5, right down to the smaller side bezels and narrower look. Still no exact release dates in Malaysia or pricing so do check out the pics for yourself.

  • Rumours: LG G Pad 8-inch tablet coming soon?

    Rumours: LG G Pad 8-inch tablet coming soon?

    LG looks to be coming back into the mobile device limelight as rumours have surfaced about an LG G Pad 8-inch Android tablet. Featuring an 8.3-inch display with an awesome 1920 x 1200 pixel resolution, the tablet looks to compete with the Apple iPad mini and other similarly sized tablets. Other tech specs for the tablet include a quad-core processor, 2GB of RAM and 3G connectivity. Other features include the fact that it will be very thin and weigh almost nothing at all, along with nearly non-existing side bezels. While this may seem like more of a wish list than a real device sources are saying that it may come to light as early as September, probably during the IFA 2013 event. Any news about pricing and availability in Malaysia would likely get announced during the event.

  • Rumours: Next Apple iPhone coming 10 September 2013?

    Rumours: Next Apple iPhone coming 10 September 2013?

    According to insider information, the next Apple iPhone, which should be the Apple iPhone 5S, is coming soon on 10 September 2013. This fits with previous release dates which also happened around this time period and while the rumour circulating is about the iPhone 5S release, it will also mark the final release of other related devices and products like perhaps iOS 7 (which is already in beta 5) and the supposedly low-cost Apple iPhone 5C. While these are the more definite announcements that are likely to happen on that date, bear in mind that the Apple iPad 5 could also make an appearance as backplate housing for the tablet has surfaced. The Apple iPad mini with Retina Display on the other hand is still slated for around 2014 though.

  • Rumours: Leaked Apple iPad 5 housing confirms iPad mini-like design, plus video with front panel

    Rumours: Leaked Apple iPad 5 housing confirms iPad mini-like design, plus video with front panel

    Pictures showing off the rear aluminum housing for the upcoming Apple iPad 5 or 5th generation Apple iPad have recently leaked. A closer look at the housing confirms that it will go for an Apple iPad mini like design, one with thinner narrower bezels and an overall narrower look than the previous generation tablet. The proof is in the numbers, or in this case the measurements where the back housing is 168mm wide compared to the previous generation which was 185mm wide. While this may result in less space, the screen and height are expected to remain the same with the side bezels shrinking to retain the original screen size. Other changes include dual stereo speakers on the bottom and an updated volume rocker button. No news when this new Apple iPad 5 would be available (in Malaysia or around the world) or for how much but it should be soon. In the meantime, check out the video showing off the Apple iPad 5 back panel and front panel being assembled.

    Rumours: Gold Apple iPhone 5S and revamped delivery schedules?

    While a whole bunch of Apple iPhone leaked images have appeared, from the plastic Apple iPhone Lite to the upcoming Apple iPhone 5S, this is the first time we've seen the iPhone 5S in gold. Featuring the same aluminum unibody chassis with a metallic gold backplate (and teal green Apple logo and wording) the image leak is shown side by side an existing Apple iPhone (or iPhone 5S) and the supposedly plastic Apple iPhone Lite. Whether or not these are real or just cheap knockoffs can't be ascertained just yet as both the real and fake versions come from China, which is where the leaked image of the gold Apple iPhone 5S comes from as well.

  • Rumours: Apple iPad mini + Retina Display Delayed to 2014?

    Rumours: Apple iPad mini + Retina Display Delayed to 2014?

    If the one thing stopping you from buying an Apple iPad mini is the lack of a Retina Display and you're waiting for the next generation to put it in then you may have to wait until 2014 before it becomes available. Rumours have cropped up that the Apple iPad mini 2 may be postponed to early 2014 due to a shortage in supply for Retina screens. The Apple iPad mini was previously reported to be coming in Q4 of 2013.
