iPhone 6: more evidence for 4.7in display

Realistically, we’ve still probably a good five or six months till the official iPhone 6 release date, but the rumours and leaked pictures and whatnot are coming thick and indeed fast.

Earlier this week we got a peek at a purported iPhone 6 mould from Foxconn, supposedly confirming the notion of a 4.7in display, and a couple of new leaked images further back that notion.

iPhone 6: 4.7in display ‘confirmed’ by Foxconn mould?

iPhone 6: 4.7in display ‘confirmed’ by Foxconn mould?

Lewis Curdie  3 days ago

You all know the story by now, right? The iPhone 6 is widely tipped to arrive later this year in two sizes – both significantly larger than the 4in iPhone 5s and iPhone 5c.

One of those sizes is seemingly confirmed by way of a picture of an iPhone 6 mould, which supposedly originated from Apple’s Taiwanese manufacturing pal, Foxconn.

Android in 2006: ‘Touchscreens will not be supported’

Android in 2006: ‘Touchscreens will not be supported’

Lewis Curdie  3 days ago

As much as litigation tends to make us sigh, court cases occasionally yield interesting titbits, such as Samsung’s 132-page comparison of the Galaxy S and the first-gen iPhone. BE MORE iPHONE was the conclusion there.

Similarly, the current legal shootout between Apple and Samsung has yielded an interesting document detailing the state of Android in 2006 – prior to the release of the first iPhone.

And so ends another week in which I largely ignored the world of mobiles in favour of galavanting around and stuff. Don’t worry; I’ll be going into super-overdrive – aka punishment – mode next week.

The big story this week was probably the global release of the Samsung Galaxy S5, while the story about Samsung's legal action against ET News grabbed the most comments.

Apple 2014 roadmap: two iPhones, two iWatches, two iPads

Russell Crowe’s Noah (good gawd) is currently welcoming animals on board his big ark in two-by-two fashion (“Based on a true story”, don’t you know), but he’s not the only one adopting the two-by-two formation.

Ming Chi Kuo, a vaguely trusted analyst at KGI Securities, says we should we expect two new iPhones this year, alongside two new iWatches and two new iPads. Beautiful.

I won't lie to you; I have no idea what the heck's been going on this week - on account of flying around and stuff. Fortunately, some guy called Me has laid out the week's mobile news below, all 21 hunks thereof.

The story what got the mostest comments was Moto G snatches 6% of UK smartphone market in just three months, the Moto G being one of the best value-for-money offerings in recent memory.

And so we find ourselves in some bizarre parallel universe where the Samsung Galaxy S5 is already on sale - before the April 11 global release date. Well, in South Korea, at least.

The other big story this week was of course the arrival of the HTC One (M8), which is already being hailed by some as the best thing since sliced iPhone. And after various delays, the HTC One 2013 finally got a taste of KitKat.

iPhone 6 rumour: two sizes, September launch

Everyone and his dog have been peddling iPhone 6 rumours for several months now, and they’re all saying much the same thing: two display sizes and a September launch.

For what it’s worth, Nikkei Asian Review wants in on the action too, saying, well, pretty much the same as everyone else. Quelle surprise.

Microsoft Office for iPad finally arrives, £80 annually for the full shebang

Phew, it’s only been – what? – four years since the late Steve Jobs unveiled the first-generation iPad, so one could hardly accuse Microsoft of rushing out its Office for iPad suite.

Microsoft Office for iPad arrives in three standalone apps, but to do anything other than view documents, you’ll need an Office 365 subscription, and it ain’t cheap.

Apple sells 500 millionth iPhone, doesn’t say a word

Apple sells 500 millionth iPhone, doesn’t say a word

Lewis Curdie  Mar. 26 at 16:00

Apple isn’t shy about blowing its own trumpet, whether it’s celebrating 50 billion app downloads or five years of the App Store.

Oddly, however, Apple has reportedly passed 500 million iPhone sales – and the Californians haven’t said a word.
