Just yesterday, through a patent, we found about Apple’s secondary display that may be introduced in their upcoming iOS devices. Well, there’s a new patent out already which highlights some of the details of the primary display of next-gen iPhone. The new improved display will be hybrid of e-ink and standard LCD.

PatentlyApple has been watching Apple closely for the patents that folks at Cupertino are filing at USPTO. The recent inclusion assigned to Apple is one of its kind piece of technology.

Totally unsure if this is true or a trick but the bigger question is why would you ever want to do it? If you’re an HTC and Android fan boy, how about you opt for phones which offer similar hardware, specs and come out with an Android OS like Desire HD, EVO 4G or Incredible S?

While WWDC is primarily a developers conference, it’s one of the biggest events that Apple holds annually which is why they have always chosen it to announce all the iPhones. This year, however, report suggests that Apple will not be announcing iPhone 5 at WWDC, instead, they will keep WWDC software-only.

Since the day jailbreaking has been legalized in US, things haven’t really changed much. Legalization did provide the jailbreakers and those with jaibroken phones a reason to exuberate but that’s pretty much the only thing they have gotten.

Kinect sure has been to places it wasn’t designed for. Such is the power of hacking the devices and using them to your benefit. We have previously seen Kinect hacked to work with PlayStation 3. Not just that, some clever folks took just 24 hours to turn GMail’s April fools joke into a working reality using Kinect, and much more.

iPad 2 is really really thin. Despite adding so much to the original iPad, it’s still 33 percent thinner. The width has went from 13.4mm to 8.8mm which makes it even thinner than the iPhone 4.

Xperia Arc is a great phone that comes with Android 2.3 (Gingerbread). But since Sony Ericsson probably isn’t one of the major players in the smartphone market, their marketing team came up with this weird, yet funny idea of promoting the phone with, well.. a dancing Android!

Since the launch of iPad 2 we knew we were going to see gold and diamond versions of it anytime soon. This, however, isn’t just a gold or diamond made iPad. This iPad 2 is as sexy as Cleopatra.

The Facebook staff is always on the move to evolve, experiment and add new features to the social network. What I love about them is the way they do it. Apart from the timely major over-hauls, they keep on introducing users to minor changes and updates. This allows users to cope up with changes while getting to enjoy new features at the same time.

MobileMe is probably one of the most widely used cloud services to keep your emails, contacts and calendar in sync on all your devices. Earlier we reported that Apple is going to unveil iOS 5 and MobileMe revamp in April. The reason why Apple will be unveiling the two together in a single event is that they are probably deeply integrated. How? we don’t know for sure but iOS 5 is expected to bring in a lot of cloud features.

Now that the copies of Windows 8 Milestone 3 are available to testers, we have seen several Windows leaks even though Microsoft warns the testers politely through this wallpaper. I mean, if I were a tester, I’d definitely respect the creativity in that wallpaper. Courtesy of one of the liberal testers (in terms of leaking content), we have had yet another view of taskbar in Windows 8. Featured first at MDL (via Neowin), the image shows few more improvements in the upcoming Windows.

Since the iPad 2 is out, the rumor mill has now shifted to another much awaited device, the iPhone 5. Based on the reports by a Chinese parts reseller, iDealsChina, iPhone 5 will feature 2 SIM card slots along with dual phone lines. The report is confusing in nature since it is speculated that iPhone 5 will include Qualcomm Gobi cellular/data chipset which helps support both GSM and CDMA connections in the same phone. It is more than a speculation though since Verizon iPhone 4 already includes that chip while it doesn’t have a SIM card slot. May be this is what the folks at iDealsChina meant by dual SIM card slots? Now the new iPhone can not have dual SIM capability along with CDMA support, can it? Probably not.

With wait so long, white iPhone 4 had started to sound like a myth but since the announcement of iPad 2 in white, I think this time Apple actually plans to make white iPhone 4 available. We have heard yet another release date and are hoping for it to be true. According to one of the recent reports by an analyst, the production of the white iPhone 4 begins sometime in this month with shipments around April.

You know iPad has been to places you probably never thought of. It has been used by medical students, soldiers in military, by directors in Hollywood, in restaurants as menu cards, as inflight entertainment system, installed in cars as navigation system and now finally iPads are in cockpits too.

Well that was obvious, with iPad 2 available at the same price as the original iPad, Apple obviously had to reduce the prices of the iPad 1, which they have done now to sell the left-over units. Apple has started to offer iPad 1 in their clearance section on the Apple Online Store.

Finally the moment has arrived when you have something more than a rumor round up on the second generation iPad. The announcement of iPad 2 is probably the second most awaited moment of the year for Apple fans, first one being the launch of iPhone 5. Want to grab the second-gen iPad ASAP? We’ll guide you through everything you need to know.
