    HTC Said To Be Prepping Its New “M7″ Flagship Android Phone For A Q1 2013 Launch

    Financially speaking, HTC hasn’t had the best track record this year. Even after promising to focus on hero devices in 2012, the company has had to deal with rough quarter after rough quarter. It seems that HTC is already working to make 2013 a bit brighter though — recent report from Focus Taiwan points out that the company is currently slaving away on its next flagship… Read More

    Bruce Willis Isn’t Suing Apple Over iTunes Music Ownership Rights

    Earlier today, there was a rumor that Bruce Willis was considering to sue Apple to clarify who owns content downloaded from iTunes. The U.K.’s Daily Mail reported – and as with all things involving British tabloids, you should take this with a grain of salt – that Willis “is said to be considering legal action against technology giant Apple over his desire to leave… Read More

    Rumour: HTC Thunderbolt to hit Best Buy Feb 14th

    What you’re looking at above is a screenshot from a Best Buy inventory. Pretty amazing, eh? But why am I showing it to you? There seems to be nothing juicy about it. Y’see, it’s not all that it appears to be, my friend… Pulling off some serous sleuthing, Android Central forum member, paulmike3, noticed that the number seen up the top left of the image (highlighted as… Read More

    PSP2 Is Real, According To Mortal Kombat Developer – Finish Him!

    While Sony has been rather coy about the existence of a PSP2 (trying not to kill the PSP Go any futher I guess), Mortal Kombat developer Sean Himmerick just spilled the beans. Read More

  • Microsoft Updating Xbox 360 Controller

    Microsoft Updating Xbox 360 Controller

    There’s a rumor making it’s way around the internet this morning, it seems that Microsoft may be launching an updated Xbox 360 controller this coming holiday season. Again, this isn’t official, however Joystiq seems to think that their source is pretty reliable. What are they updating? Well, apparently the D-Pad needs some refreshing. The plan is apparently to rotate the D-Pad… Read More

  • Rumor: Is Nikon Making Their Own Sensors?

    Rumor: Is Nikon Making Their Own Sensors?

    Nikon has always been fairly closed mouth about exactly who makes their sensors, but it’s been standard knowledge that they are made by Sony. The rumor is that Nikon has started developing (and possibly manufacturing) their own sensors. If this rumor is true, this would mark a departure for Nikon. The first clues to this popped up in marketing materiels, with the D3100 being labeled… Read More

  • CrunchRumors: Nikon D90 replacement specs

    CrunchRumors: Nikon D90 replacement specs

    This is strictly a rumor at this point, but the replacement for the D90 is looking interesting. Nikon Rumors got a whisper of the basic stats, and here’s what we’ve got: 16MP DX Sensor Noise reduction algorithm from the D700 Full HD video capabilites (1080p?) Video auto-focus capability Body made partly from aluminium Again, we don’t know for sure that this is true, but… Read More

  • CrunchRumor: Nikon's new entry level camera will be called the D3100

    CrunchRumor: Nikon's new entry level camera will be called the D3100

    We’re calling this one a rumor, but it’s pretty much confirmed. Nikon is expected to announce their newest models at Photokina, but there’s always leaks before the show. Word got out a few months ago that Nikon was going to release a new entry level DSLR this year, something between the D3000 and D5000. The previous rumor was that it was going to be called the D4000, but… Read More

  • Canon 60D to be revealed in August?

    Canon 60D to be revealed in August?


    There were some rumors swirling that the mythical 60D, supposedly a prosumer DSLR situated between the T2i and 7D, would be announced tomorrow. That doesn’t seem to be the case after all, but with all this chatter, when else could it be? Oh I don’t know, how about at Canon’s once-every-five-years Canon Expo event, happening September 2nd-3rd? If I had any money, that’s… Read More

  • Both Nintendo 3DS and PSP-4000 to be released this year in Japan?

    Both Nintendo 3DS and PSP-4000 to be released this year in Japan?

    It would make a lot of sense, but take this with a grain of salt: major Japanese game and movie retailer Geo Corp. states in its latest financial report [JP, PDF] that both the Nintendo 3DS and the long-rumored PSP-4000 will be released by year end – at least in Japan. On page 23 in the report, Geo lists up all key products for the company’s fiscal year through March 2011 (see… Read More

    Rumor: Nike+ heart rate monitor coming in June

  • Nikon D4x concept looks boxy, unlikely

    Nikon D4x concept looks boxy, unlikely

    Nikon’s next generation D4x should be arriving in the next year or so, and it’s always fun to speculate what it will look like. I doubt this is even close, honestly. It is fun to see what industrial designers can come up with when they play though. Keep in mind this is not a actual Nikon design, but rather a speculation on what direction they could go in.

  • Nikon patents strange LCD screen

    Nikon patents strange LCD screen

    Patents are always so much fun, and such a source of random speculation. Take for example this new LCD display from Nikon. What could it be? Is it for a DLSR? Maybe for video? No one knows, and of course Nikon isn’t talking, but it’s interesting to put your best guess out there. Read More

  • CrunchRumor: Alienware M11x to get updated Nvidia chipset?

    CrunchRumor: Alienware M11x to get updated Nvidia chipset?

    One question that has come up ever since the M11x was released was why didn’t Alienware use the Nvidia Optimus chipset. The chipset that Alienware did use makes switching between the integrated and discreet graphics rather awkward and jarring, and a less then ideal user experience. Well, the rumor rattling around the pipes today is that the M11x may be getting a refresh this summer, and… Read More

    HP Slate specs leak, get compared the iPad

    Uh oh! Sounds like someone is going to be in trouble. The word is out on the probable spec and pricing on the HP Slate, and HP is definitely aware of the iPad. Obviously an internal document, it’s very interesting to see exactly what HP considers a threat, and what they consider to be an advantage. Read More

    Nexus One hitting Verizon on March 23rd?

    The last we heard the Nexus One was navigating its way through the FCC and Verizon was targeting a “Spring 2010″ launch. But now there’s a rumor floating around that states quite clearly that March 23, 2010 will be the launch date. Interesting… Read More

  • Nikon's lens rebate program starting on the 28th

    Nikon's lens rebate program starting on the 28th

    Get that wallet ready, Nikon’s annual instant rebate program is starting on the 28th. Pretty much always a good deal, Nikon loves to tempt the weak with their instant rebate offers on lenses and gear that they roll out on a yearly basis. Case in point – I bought my D300 back in 2008 (with the oh so popular 18-200 VR) and justified it to my wife as a “really great… Read More

And just a few minutes ago, via his Twitter account, he (possibly) dropped some major hints on the Apple tablet that’s going to be presented tomorrow. Calacanis claims he has been given a tablet by Apple ten… Read More
