On top of the slew of recent alleged leaks of the next-generation iPhone, another tidbit has surfaced claiming that the infamous earbuds that come with the iPhone will be redesigned. Many have criticized the existing Apple headphones for being ill-fitted and underperforming, especially considering their standalone price of roughly $30. Clearly aware of the criticisms present, Apple is rumored to be addressing these issues with the release of the new headphones.

By | August 1st, 2012

Windows 8 has just been released to manufacturing, as expected; Microsoft recently revealed that this would happen at the beginning of August. What does this mean? Well, the OS has been finalized, and the final build is being sent out to OEMs/partners as we speak.

Given all of the rumors surrounding the alleged mini-iPad as of late, on top of the recent leak which shows what the next-generation iPhone may look like if alleged components prove to be true, everyone’s obviously anticipating some exciting news regarding the company’s mobile lineup this fall. iMore is hearing from sources close to Apple that they’re planning to announce the next-generation iPhone – and highly anticipated “iPad Mini” on September 12th, with the iPhone being available for purchase come September 21st. That’s just 9 days from the announcement date of the device (take note, Microsoft.)

Throughout the constant back and forth legal bickering between Apple and Samsung lately, some interesting, formerly confidential tidbits have leaked out giving us a glimpse at some early internal iPhone prototypes. TheVerge spotted a few of them after scouring through various documents, and they’re actually rather interesting. One interesting concept in particular draws a hefty deal of inspiration from one of Sony’s designs, and Samsung plans to bring it up to basically tell the court that Apple, with all of their accusations, aren’t holy angels in the situation either.

Seeing that we’ve been able to gather a few years of experience with touchscreen keyboards, they’ve become relatively easy to use for most, especially for simple and short search queries. However, if you want to add a more creative and personal touch to your input, you will be able to take advantage of Handwrite, which Google just announced. It’s a new feature of Google’s mobile search website that’s actually built into the search webpage itself, so you’ll be able to try this out on any touch-enabled smartphone (or tablet, for that matter.)

Following yesterday’s official debut of Office 2013 (and the Customer Preview, which is now available for download as we reported yesterday), Microsoft has today followed up with a post that shares more information about Office 2013’s role in the cloud as well as its future on the Windows Phone platform.

Following the news surrounding Apple’s proposed nano-SIM format – which is essentially a mico-SIM stripped of all unnecessary “bevel” plastic – it appears that European mobile carriers are preparing for the launch of the next-generation iPhone by stockpiling on nano-SIMs. Given that the standard was proposed by Apple (while they aren’t named exactly, it’s evident that the approved design is at least heavily based on their proposal) – and subsequently approved by ETSI (the European Telecommunications Standards Institute) – it’s fairly safe to assume that they will be using it in their next-generation iPhone.

The smartphone sales war is definitely heating up. While Apple set the tone of the modern smartphone market when they released the iPhone – which was essentially the first “modern” smartphone – back in 2007, Google were quick to release Android, which would eventually overtake the iPhone in market share. Speaking of overtaking, should a Reuters poll prove to be accurate, it would appear that premier Android OEM Samsung may have overtaken Apple in smartphone sales in Q2 of this year.

Adding on to the already-tall pile of rumors that suggest Apple will be launching a smaller iPad with a roughly 8-inch display, the New York Times has just stated that, according to sources close to the company, the 7.85″ iPad will be “significantly cheaper” than the existing iPad 3, and will make its debut sometime this year.

The popular cross-platform IM app Nimbuzz is now available on the Windows Phone, for the surprisingly low cost of nothing. It’s been in existence since the Windows Mobile days, and is available on a wide sleuth of platforms: Android, iOS, Symbian, Blackberry, Java, PC, Mac, and of course, Windows Phone. The app allows you to chat with other Nimbuzz users, as well as friends on Facebook, Gtalk, Yahoo Messenger, and WLM for free. Some form of Twitter integration is also baked into the app.

Three months after the phone’s debut as the device to end the “smartphone beta test”, Nokia has just sliced the price of the Lumia 900 in half on AT&T in the United States. Now, you can pick it up at the low cost of $49.99 when paired with a two year contract with the carrier. The announcement of this pricing change coincides with the announcement of a pink Lumia 900, which joins the existing white, black, and cyan color schemes that the device also comes in.

About a week ago, we reported on that FCC filing that surfaced which suggested that a new PlayStation 3 model – perhaps the last to be released before the next-generation PlayStation debuts – is in the works. Now, a more revealing leak has surfaced, again from another filing; Tecnoblog discovered several alleged images of the device itself that were included in a filing with the Brazilian Agency of Telecommunications (Anatal).
