    The iPhone 6 Plus has garnered a lot of fame lately, and that's not for the reasons you'd think. In addition to being Apple's biggest iPhone ever, it's also the one that Apple has struggled most to produce. We've learned that Apple's biggest hurdles are in building the display for the phablet, something that comes as a complete irony since big displays on phones have existed for a while already, and yet, something which Apple is already looking to solve for the future. Bloomberg is reporting that Foxconn's display subsidiary Innolux is investing $2.6 billion in building a new factory to ...

    Last winter was an exciting time for Windows Phone fans. Microsoft was all up in MWC’s bidness and name dropping like a drunk bathroom attendant. We heard about all of these OEMs that had sworn a blood oath – okay, it might have been ink – to bring forth Windows Phone upon it markets in broad fashion making Windows Phone the envy of all other platforms. That might be reading between the lines a bit, but that was basically the gist of it. So here we are, almost five months later and we here at the Pocketnow feeding trough started thinking – “Where the heck are all those OEMs we ...

    Yes, WWDC 2014 is over, and yes, if you were expecting the event to shed some light on Apple's hardware in the future, you'll sadly be disappointed. The company spent two hours showcasing what we can expect for the future of its software offerings, but those of you expecting hardware will have to wait until Apple's usual fall events. Still, that Apple's partners aren't making some official statements, one that happened today is kind of a shocker. Rarely do we see Apple's partners officially announce that they are working on an Apple product, and specially a product that hasn't been ...

    Apple has broken its records year-over-year with the iPhone, even though not every one of its iPhones has had the same luck. That being said we have lots of reports of Apple launching its next-generation iPhone 6 in the next couple of months, and some expect the changes to be big. Rumors mention a bigger and more powerful iPhone, and some new ones point to Apple betting big on this release. Foxconn electronics, major manufacturer for Apple's higher-end iPhones, is apparently expecting orders of as much as 90 million iPhone 6 units in 2014 according to the Chinese-language Commercial ...

    When Microsoft announced its intention to absorb Nokia's devices and services group last year, many wondered what effect the $7.2B acquisition would have on the company's relationship with its Windows Phone hardware partners. It's a sensible question (how can a company endorse partners' hardware while also building its own?) and it's one Microsoft addressed directly on its Windows Phone blog. Today, Microsoft has backed up its commitment to Windows Phone diversity by announcing nine new hardware partners for its mobile OS. The list of vendors is largely made up of Chinese and Indian ...
