    New Apple iPad and iPad mini coming in September?

    Reports published recently have shown signs that the next versions of the Apple iPad (in this case Apple iPad 5) and Apple iPad mini (Apple iPad mini 2) may be coming soon. As usual the report comes from the parts and supply chain and indicates that the new 9.7-inch Apple iPad may be introduced in September. Parts suppliers are ready for production with no expected changes to existing specs. However, this isn't what is being said about the next Apple iPad mini.

  • Apple Patents Now-you-see-it Now-you-don't Bezel, maybe for iWatch?

    Apple Patents Now-you-see-it Now-you-don't Bezel, maybe for iWatch?

    Apple really comes up with some interesting patents and one of their more recent patents sounds particularly well suited for devices with small screens, which also sounds particularly well suited for Apple's upcoming iWatch. The patent in question is for a bezel technology that disappears (and becomes touch capable) and reappears (becoming insensitive bezel) when needed. Believe it or not, bezels are quite necessary for most touchscreen devices as they help offer a place to grip, however, for a small touchscreen like on the upcoming iWatch, having a situation where you need a bit more space could come in handy.

    iOS 7 Beta Released, Supports iPad

    As promised when it was announced recently, the Apple iOS 7 beta 2 is now available to download for developers. Aside from the features announced previously, the new beta enables support for the Apple iPad and iPad mini along with Siri's decidedly better voices and other enhancements. Apart from this not much more has changed except for perhaps a combined iTunes and App Store settings menu, working Voicemail and better UI enhancements. The full version is expected to be released along with the next generation of iOS devices (Apple iPhone 5S, iPad 5, etc.) which may be due in Q3 of 2013.

  • 7.85-inch MSI Primo 81 Tablet Trying to be iPad Mini Killer

    7.85-inch MSI Primo 81 Tablet Trying to be iPad Mini Killer

    While the Apple iPad Mini hasn't cornered the 7-inch touchscreen tablet market it does have a rather large market base, which is probably why the MSI Primo 81 is trying to compete with it. What sets it apart from other contenders isn't just that MSI is a more well-known Taiwan brand but also because it is using the exact same 7.85-inch IPS screen with 1024 x 768 pixel resolution made by LG as the Apple iPad Mini. While it does look a bit wider than the iPad Mini, the Primo 81 has nearly identical bezels and shape along with a number of other similar tech specs including:

    • Quad-core Allwinner A315 processor
    • 1GB RAM
    • 7.85-inch display (IPS, 1024 x 768)
    • 3500 mAh battery
    • Andorid 4.2

While Apple have been doing quite well too at $22.95 billion this figure is lower by $7.71 billion compared to the figure reached in Q4 of 2012. Nokia followed up with $3.64 billion while LG got $2.95 billion from their smartphone sales.

    Rumours: iOS 7 Going for Flatter Black and White User Interface?

    Rumours about what Apple is going to do extend even to their upcoming iOS 7 operating system, with many wondering what Apple have up their sleeves this time.

  • Rumour: Apple iPad Mini Retina coming to Malaysia in Q3 2013, iPad Mini 3 in 2014

    Rumour: Apple iPad Mini Retina coming to Malaysia in Q3 2013, iPad Mini 3 in 2014

    One of the main issues most people had with the Apple iPad Mini was the fact that it didn't have a Retina display. The Retina display was the one feature that made the Apple iPad such a big thing, so why didn't Apple put in one for the iPad mini? The answer is probably because they wanted to release a Retina-enabled iPad Mini later as current rumours seem to indicate. According to these rumours this new Retina screen enabled iPad Mini is set for release sometime in Q3 of 2013.
