    There are a ton of conflicting rumors in the market regarding the launch of the iPhone 6. The general consensus is that the event will happen in mid September, but where things are mainly mixed is in the possibility of both the 4.7-inch iPhone 6 and the 5.5-inch variant launching at the same time. Today we land another batch of rumors on the topic, and instead of providing some clarity; it only made things more confusing. New sources claim that even though iOS 8 is nearing its final stages to be complete, Apple hasn't decided on a final date for the announcement because the of issues with ...

    Apple's quarter results are in, and for those of you non-Apple fans that are hoping for the Cupertino kids to file for bankruptcy any time soon, that's just not going to happen. The company has reported revenue of $37.4 billion, and earnings of $1.28 per share (after last month's seven-for-one stock split). These numbers are above Apple's own $36 billion projections, though a little shy of Wall Street's $37.99 billion forecast, where the earnings per share did exceed the $1.23 projected. Still, if you think all these numbers are positive, that's actually not the case; so prepare to not be ...

    The Nokia Lumia 530 has been on our radar for the last couple of weeks. Surely it's not the next Lumia flagship that many of us would dream about, but after the success of the Lumia 520 last year, it's clear that a lot of people are looking forward to a well-priced and decent Windows Phone experience. If you're holding off to see what the Lumia 530 is all about, new leaks show us everything we want to know about it. Vietnamese web shop Mainguyen is famous for posting information on upcoming smartphones and getting the spec information right. On a new listing for the Lumia 530, we do see ...

    Even with the lack of success that companies like Google have found in wallet applications, that doesn't mean that these are giving up on this service. Apple's approach was different with PassBook where you can't really buy anything with it due to the lack of NFC capabilities on iPhones, but you can still store certain cards on it instead of having to carry them around. Amazon Wallet is a mix of these things as we saw on the Amazon Fire Phone, and this just became public for the rest of us. Amazon has just launched its Amazon Wallet service on the Google Play Store. This app won't allow ...

    With rumors of HTC working on new categories like tablets and wearables, it's only a matter of time before more credible data surfaces. The company has found some new air with the launch of the HTC One (M8), so this would be the smartest time to expand its mindshare through other well-made products in different categories. The company has just launched an HTC Design video showcasing the mentality that drives the its design, and whether intentional or non intentional, the company seems to have just leaked its smartwatch. In the following video you can slide to the 35-second mark and notice ...

    If you all remember, the launch of the iPhone 5s and iPhone 5c last year caught Apple with a little surprise. Tim Cook at some point admitted that he expected there to be a balanced demand for Apple's current iPhones, and instead, people went crazy for the iPhone 5s and nearly ignored the iPhone 5c. It took Apple months to be able to meet demand for the iPhone 5s, and reports claim that the company doesn't want to face these constraints with the iPhone 6. The Wall Street Journal claims that Apple is placing an order for a staggering 70 to 80 million units of the 4.7-inch and 5.5-inch ...

    Even though 7-inch tablets have gained a significant level of popularity these days, Apple sadly can't say the same about its iPad mini lineup. The original iPad mini disappointed many with its low-resolution display, and the iPad mini with Retina Display was sadly overshadowed by its bigger brother, the iPad Air. This year we're expecting some minor changes to the bigger iPad Air, but given the fact that this is the third cycle for the iPad mini, it's rumored to be due for a change. New rumors point to the iPad mini dropping a few millimeters in its thickness and being dubbed the iPad ...

    Microsoft's launch of Cortana on Windows Phone 8.1 has been met with much praise. Surely this is the first version of Cortana that many of you are experiencing, but in no way can this service be considered as a lesser product than the more mature services we find on iOS and Android. Still, the biggest problem with Cortana is that it's currently only available for Windows Phone 8.1 devices in the US, or at least was the problem, as it's about to change. Cortana's program manager Marcus Ash has just tweeted about the future of Cortana outside the US. He claims that unless something comes up, ...

    ZTE hasn't necessarily been a blockbuster hit when it comes to the smartphones it has launched in the US, but that could be intentional. The company has focused on the mid-tier market with devices like the Nubia 5 or the Boost Max that we recently reviewed, and we doubt things will change any time soon after what we saw at ZTE's booth at MWC 2014. That said, the company is interested in growing in the US market, and some new leaks point to something new in the pipeline. Famous tipster @evleaks just landed an interesting tip of a ZTE phablet that's currently being tested on T-Mobile. You'll ...

    One of the most anticipated smartphones of the year is Samsung's next iteration of the Galaxy Note lineup. Last year's Galaxy Note 3 received a lot of praise for its design and features, and the rumors of the future Galaxy Note 4 also point to something worth looking forward to. Still, if you thought that the rumored Samsung Galaxy F is the only device that Samsung plans to launch with a metal chassis this year, think again. New rumors claim that Samsung is considering a dramatic revamp for the Galaxy Note 4, and it actually makes sense if you remember how the company's CEO teased a ...

    Apple's acquisition of Beats has a couple of industries speculating over what the future beholds. Beats was not just in the business of selling fashionable headphones, but also in the business of music streaming, so we do understand Apple's desire in snatching such a unique company in order to boost its current offerings. If you're wondering what competitors are thinking about this whole business transaction, let's go through a recent interview with Spotify's CEO. Daniel Ek, the CEO and co-founder of the streaming music giant Spotify was recently interviewed for Fortune's Brainstorm ...

    We've ran across a couple of interesting leaks regarding the iPhone 6 over the last couple of weeks. Some of these show us an iPhone 6 with the rear Apple logo cut out in order to allow the rumored NFC antenna to not be affected, and others point to this logo lighting up like we currently see on Apple's MacBook line-up. But what if both of these rumors were actually true, and even more important, what if that logo doesn't just light up for the fun of it? Some new trusted sources have now leaked some new photos that show us the iPhone 6 back assembly ready to allow for the logo to glow. The ...
