The iPad Mini 2 Could Cost $249 [Rumor]


At $ 329, the iPad mini is Apple’s cheapest iPad by far… but compared to $ 199 and $ 249 Android tablets, it’s still pricy in the 7-inch markets.

That might change, though. A new rumor suggests that Apple will release the iPad mini 2 for the low, low price of $ 249.

The report comes from Citi Research, who don’t seem to have a lot of evidence to go by.  [Read More…]

TS520x0~cms posts 5821902581 Samsung Galaxy camera

There seem to be two ways to make a Wi-Fi-enabled camera. The first is to build an actual camera and add a Wi-Fi radio. The second is to make an iPod Touch with a decent 5MP camera module inside. Depending on your requirements, either one can be great.

But there now appears to be a third way. Samsung has taken a camera, added an Android phone, and then  [Read More…]

Take That, EE! Three U.K. Will Give Customers 4G Access At No Additional Cost


EE launched the United Kingdom’s first 4G LTE network back in October 2012, and with it came some pretty expensive price plans; the carrier has certainly been taking advantage of the fact that it has the U.K.’s only 4G network. But that approach is going to be spoiled by rival carrier Three.

Microsoft’s True iPad Killer Will Cost Nearly As Much As A MacBook Air


The first Microsoft Surface RT tablets were supposed to be Redmond’s answer to the iPad. They have a cool design, with a fancy keyboard and an innovative new operating system to boot. Sales have been abysmal. The reviews were bad. And we weren’t too impressed either.

Microsoft swears that the Surface Pro is going to be way better though. It’s going to actually run a full version of Windows 8, meaning it will have  [Read More…]

AT&T Will Finally Let You FaceTime Your Friends Over Cellular For No Extra Cost


Back in September, Apple announced that iPhone owners would now be able to make FaceTime calls over cellular, rather than requiring a WiFi connection at all times. AT&T has been dragging their feet over the manner and still haven’t let people FaceTime over cellular, until now.

AT&T announced today that they are expanding access to the FaceTime over Cellular feature that was launched in September. After a lot of testing, they think  [Read More…]

Why An iPad Mini With Retina Display Would Have Cost $379 [Feature]

This could have cost $ 379. Image via CNET.

Although the iPad mini is well-reviewed, a constant complaint that has been leveled against Apple’s smallest tablet is that the display isn’t Retina. In fact, in my review of the iPad mini, I could barely see past the terrible fuziness of the on-screen text, and considered it an otherwise perfect device’s Achilles’ Heel.

Over the last day or so, a lot of thinkers  [Read More…]

The Human Cost Of The iPad Mini Involves Explosions, Chemical Smells, And Unpaid Overtime

Each time Apple releases a shiny new device lusted after by consumers across the globe, workers at Chinese factory manufacturers pay the price more than anyone who waits in line at an Apple Store for five hours to shell out $ 329.

As soon as production of an Apple product goes into launch mode, Chinese factory workers get hit by a wave of chemical fumes, 12-hour work shifts, unpaid overtime, and even  [Read More…]
