  • Another Alleged iPad 2 Case Caught On Camera

    It’s possible that the suppliers who gave 9to5mac this case are just plain lying that they know the specs, but if release really is imminent, it’s also possible that this is the real thing. Personally I’d guess this is a non-final “draft” based on preliminary or rumored specs, as Apple is likely to be extra-careful about who it sends the info to this time… Read More

  • Rumor: iPhone 5 To Have A Larger, 4-Inch Screen?

    Apple has taken its own sweet time adopting functions and features that many phone users now take for granted. Unfortunately, as Android phones up the ante in terms of screen screen size and processor speed, the iPhone is starting to lose a few comparison tests and, barring all other stats, screen size makes for a great in-store tie-breaker. Luckily for Apple, there’s a new rumor on… Read More

  • HP TouchPad: $699 In June?


    BGR has word from a source that the TouchPad will be launching in June for $699. Sounds about right to me — any later, and their goose is cooked. I’m not sure $699 is going to pull a lot of people, though, since what HP is selling is a little more subtle than Android, and the average consumer might not be able to pull themselves away from the default iPad, especially if the… Read More

  • iPhone Nano Rumors Resurface In Report

    We’ve been hearing “iPhone Nano” rumors for a long time. In 2007, 2008, 2009, though strangely not 2010, we heard from suppliers, case makers, tipsters, sources, and so on that there’d be a new, smaller iPhone out there soon, but it has never materialized. So what makes this newest rumor, reported by Bloomberg, any different? Nothing, really. We’re just passing on… Read More

  • Elton John Slightly Confirms Existing iPad 2 Rumors

    Yesterday, we heard a rumor that the iPad 2 was coming in March. Today, 9to5mac points out a BBC interview where Elton John says he is to get a Skype iPad in April. It’s not like we learn anything new here, just a few more hints at iPad’s inevitable launch. If you watch the interview, you’ll notice that he says, “..so I can see Zachary,” when talking about… Read More

  • Rumor: iPad 2 To Be Announced Later This Month, Released In March

    Later this month, we may get to see what Apple has planned for the next iteration of wildly successful iPad. There have been many rumors about what features iPad 2 will have, but none have been specific enough to offer a date. All we really know is that it has almost been a year since the iPad was released and the next one is coming pretty much any time now. Read More

  • iPad Rumors: NFC, Carbon Fiber, And 7" Version Again

    I know what you’re thinking: none of these rumors is actually new. Near-field communication we’ve talked about for a while, the carbon fiber thing was around back in November, and didn’t we pretty much dismiss the 7″ iPad thing? Yes, all these things are true. But now somebody is rumoring them again. Read More

  • Alleged iPad 2 Display Found: Lighter And Thinner, But Is It High-Rez?


    9to5mac has gotten their hands on what they believe is an iPad 2 display, and it’s… not actually that exciting, but still a great scoop for them. Unfortunately, while the screen is definitely lighter and thinner than the previous one, they have no way of telling whether it is, in fact, the high-resolution display we’ve heard rumored. More pics this-a-way. Read More

  • PSA: 3D Matrix Sequels Rumor Was A Hoax


    You may have seen a few reports going around the webosphere to the effect that Keanu Reeves and the Wachowski brothers were in the midst of planning a pair of Matrix sequels. Not only that, but the two films were to be in 3D. It turns out the whole thing was basically made up, so never mind. Don’t propagate. Read More

  • "Upstream Component Makers" Corroborate iPad 2 Retina Display

    Whether this Digitimes report is just an echo of the previous rumors, I can’t say, but they seem to have gotten independent confirmation that the next iPad will indeed have a 2048×1536 display. Let’s take it with a grain of salt, though, until we get something a little more solid. Nothing on the other rumors, either. …Lotta white space here. I guess I’ll use it to… Read More

  • iPad 2 Rumor Roundup

    The next version of the iPad is, if timing and supply line rumors are to be believed, just around the corner. Although unexpected delays may follow in the wake of Jobs’ medical leave, the design must be finalized, and the factories in China are at this moment preparing to pump out five or six million of these things over the next few months. There have been a few purported leaks, but… Read More
