Apple may get a bit colorful with its much-rumored low-cost iPhone.
In an investors note out today, analyst Brian White cited research suggesting that the lower-cost iPhone, aka “iPhone Mini,” would come in five different colors. White also believes the phone will arrive before the iPhone 5S, which is likely to debut in September assuming Apple follows its usual schedule.
Rumors have run rampant over the past several months about a low-cost iPhone, with several analysts and Apple watchers saying such a phone would launch sometime this year. A less pricey iPhone would be geared toward developing markets where the traditional iPhone is a bit too expensive for the average consumer. Apple, of course, has been mum on the topic.
White also believes that the iPhone 6, likely to launch in 2014, will sport a larger screen size than the 4-inch display found on the iPhone 5.
Now we’ve covered the first wave of Haswell-powered PCs and laptops, how about something to whet your appetite for later this year? While investigating Intel’s fanless tablet reference design, HP told us that its own iteration — one that was apparently also on stage during Intel’s Computex events — will be coming soon. While the tablet (or hybrid) wasn’t being shown publicly at the event, an official announcement is coming later this year. We thought we wouldn’t get to see a fanless Intel Core portable until Haswell’s successor, Broadwell (and its even smaller 14nm chips) started doing the rounds in a few years, but some clever hardware design could mean we see space-hogging, power-consuming fans dropped a little early.
Android Developer Paul O’Brien, has done it again. First, he unleashed Facebook Home apks before the initial release. Now, he has made Facebook Home available to all devices, even unrooted ones. That is correct. You do not have to be rooted to give Facebook Home a try.
The folks at Modaco extracted the Facebook Home APK file and made it available for all those in other countries than the US.
