    Apple's online Store might be down for the moment and it's probably because of the Black Friday deals which include, alongside iPads, computers, accessories and iPods. Keep on refreshing and you might get lucky! While an unlocked iPhone 5 is still not available from Apple -- and thus no discounts here -- you might want to take a look at the reduced iPad prices if you're in the market for an Apple tablet. The iPad With Retina Display -- that's the newest, "iPad 4" -- has been discounted by $41, $51, or $61, depending on the storage option. You can get it for $458, $548, or $638 for the 16-, ...

    It's nearly here: Black Friday. That horrendous questionable "holiday" tradition wherein hundreds of thousands of Americans, fresh from giving thanks for their blessings and good fortune over massive piles of food, flood the streets to acquire more (material) blessings by spending as little of their good fortune as possible. Black Friday is the busiest shopping day of the year for a very good reason: retailer discounts are often outrageous, and locations open absurdly early on this day-long celebration of unbridled capitalism. The media has a field day covering these early-morning ...

    Yesterday, about 24 hours ago, we reported that Nokia has released its -- now rebranded -- HERE maps for iOS, making it available for iPhone and iPad. Today, 24 hours later, the application is already the fourth application in the top free iPhone app list on iTunes, way above popular titles like Pandora, Spotify, Twitter, or even some Apple apps. After iOS 6 removed Google Maps from the system, users of the iPhone 5 -- as well as previous version of the iPhone and iPad that were updated to iOS 6 -- were left with Apple's own maps and some alternatives proposed by Apple itself after the ...

    With Black Friday (and Cyber Monday) just days away, the 2012 holiday shopping season is about to take off in force. Whether you're shopping for friends or family, there are bound to be a few electronic gadgets on your list. Will you end up buying just what your gift recipients had been hoping for, or will your efforts miss the mark a little? If you're in the US and shopping for a kid this year, it's looking like Apple's iPad is going to be the gift to beat. Nielsen's latest survey figures take a look at what electronics six-to-twelve-year-olds in the US are itching to get their fingers ...

    The Here maps were announced by Nokia last week and we knew to expect an iOS iteration, among others. It appears that the application is now available in the iTunes App Store for both the iPhone and the iPad. When Apple's CEO Tim Cook apologized for the poor experience in iOS 6, he offered some alternatives available in the App Store until Apple's own mapping solutions become what they should have been. Here maps by Nokia is such an alternative mapping solution (now that Google Maps is no longer the default and a new iteration is yet to arrive) and, according to the description, it brings ...

    "Shorten your topic list," they said. "The show won't run as long," they said. An hour and a half later, another lengthy episode of the Pocketnow Weekly podcast is ready for your listening enjoyment. And make no mistake: we could have talked for another 40 minutes at least. That's not because it's been a huge news week, but because our discussion topics are dense and detailed. Topics like phone reviews, new platforms, and 1080p screens. Subjects like GPS navigation, wide-angle smartphone cameras, and whether Google should become a wireless carrier. The merits and shortcomings of the Lumia ...

    It's been almost a month since Apple introduced the iPad mini and the fourth generation iPad; the initial WiFi-only variants were selling rather well, according to Apple, which was quick to brag about three million units over the first weekend of sales (starting November 2), double the previous first weekend record of 1.5 million for the iPad in March. Those who ordered the Cellular models should get them soon (some elite few already got them) but if you didn't pre-order yours you can pick one up, either the iPad mini or the fourth generation iPad, from AT&T and Sprint. Both carriers ...

    Following Apple's announcement of the iPad mini and the hardware-refreshed iPad 4 last month, one open question has remained: just when will the LTE-capable versions of these tablets arrive? We looked into the shipping situation for both models last week, and heard reports of users who had ordered the tablets being notified that they could expect their hardware to arrive sometime from November 20 through 23. As we move into this week, though, it's sounding possible that the LTE iPad 4 could show up a little earlier, with some users receiving their tablets as soon as November 16. That's the ...

    Apple's long-rumored iPad mini is finally here, at least if all you wanted was the WiFi-only version of the 7.9-inch tablet. What if the tablet's petite size just screams to you "take me out into the world", and you've been hankering for one of the cellular-enabled versions, instead? Apple's been accepting orders for those models, but the question as to just when they'd finally ship has remained. Now we're finally starting to get a better idea of when those orders could end up arriving, as well as when the LTE iPad mini might go up for sale in retail stores. Users who ordered the LTE iPad ...

    If you've got an iPad 3, you might be curious (and also frustrated by the early release of) the iPad 4, which adds a new CPU and the lightning charging port. The most notable feature, certainly, is the faster CPU, which Apple claims to provide double the performance than the A5x, found inside the iPad 3. In our review of the iPad 3, we charged that it was not significantly faster than the iPad 2, offering up occasional lag and stutters. The A6 chip, making its debut in the iPhone 5, is much more promising than was the A5. It's a 32nm CPU that provides increased performance and lower ...

    It's here! Well, they're here. That is, the iPad 4 (going by the new of "iPad with Retina Display") and iPad mini are in the house. Both iPads, in a way, try to fix what's wrong with the current iPad: it's thick and heavy, and it's laggy at times. The iPad 4 addresses the latter problem by including the Apple A6x CPU, which is a dual-core, quad-core GPU chip that is supposed to be twice as fast as the iPad 3. And the iPad mini addresses the former issue by being super thin and super light. In this video we cover a few first impressions:   First impressions for the iPad mini: The ...

    The holiday period is always a busy one, but when you've got industry-defining products launching from literally every major manufacturer and platform-maker, it's a special Q4 indeed. That's what we're looking at with this episode of the Pocketnow Weekly: from Microsoft's new Surface RT and Windows Phones, to Google's new Nexus family, to Apple's iPad Mini, there's a lot to cover. Throw in a lot of Windows 8 and Android commentary, the typically awesome helping of listener mail, and the fact that two-thirds of the podcast team have bad head colds, and you get a sweet -if stuffy- hour and a ...

    Watch today's Pocketnow Daily as we go through the recent rumors of a Google Nexus 3 in photography data. Then we go over the current sales status of Apples iPad line-up. Microsoft also made the news as they launched their Windows Phone 8 SDK along with certain conditions that complicates the process a bit. We later talk about the LG Spectrum 2 and why does it matter on the Verizon network. We end today's show by talking about Google's recent upgrade to Google Search on iOS, and why does that disappoint Android customers. All this and more after the break.

    Judging from past iPad releases, we'll admit we found it weird to see an iPad launch where the product didn't sell out on the first couple of hours. The Fourth-Generation iPad launched its pre-order at the same time as the iPad mini, and still, only certain units of the iPad mini sold out on the first couple of hours. As of today its, if you're after the 9.7-inch Retina Display iPad, orders will ship a week's delay. You can obviously just go to the store on November 2nd and make a line to get your own, but we know many of you prefer to take the simple route. The LTE version of the iPad ...

    "Welcome to Q3!" That's the greeting Anton D. Nagy had for Michael Fisher when the latter talked about the sheer volume of news to cover on this week's episode of the Pocketnow Weekly. And indeed, the ramp up to the holiday season in this, the third quarter of 2012, has been packed. Apple, Google, Microsoft, Samsung, and a host of other manufacturers have all contributed to this month's veritable fountain of product releases and announcements, and Multimedia Editor Jaime Rivera joins us this week to talk about (almost) all of it. In this episode: Apple's iPad Mini and iPad 4, Microsoft's ...

Then we go through the recent leaks of a Galaxy Note II variant coming to Verizon with some awkward branding changes. We later talk about the LG Spectrum 2 which will probably shine as a good product, but which is sadly no Optimus G variant for Verizon. Then we go through the new leaks of the HTC J Butterfly now being dubbed the HTC Droid DNA in Verizon and no longer the DIX or DLX. We end today's show by talking about Apple's launch of the iPad mini and the surprise of a ...

    News of the iPad mini and fourth-generation big iPad is still fresh on our minds, but industry analysts are already looking to the future. If learning about a new iPad just seven months after the last one has you concerned that there could be another new version just around the corner, you might want to give some thought to these rumors about a new, thinner iPad. Claims that Apple could be looking to thin-down the 9.7-inch iPad do make a good deal of sense. After all, the iPad mini shows that Apple is clearly able to deliver a tablet that's just 7.2 millimeters thick, so why not bring the ...

    Today's word of Apple's new iPad refresh (will we start calling it the iPad 4? The jury's still out on that one) sounds absolutely fantastic... unless you just bought an old iPad 3 at the same price. Are you stuck with that old tablet? Luck might be on your side, as it's looking like there could be a good chance that Apple will let customers exchange their iPads for these new models under certain circumstances. This is far from universally confirmed, but what we're hearing is that Apple Stores may accept exchanges of the iPad 3 that were purchased in the past thirty days and are still in ...

    You may have heard that Apple dropped some science on us this morning, with the announcement of a boatload of new desktops, notebooks, and tablets. Under normal circumstances, we'd be focused entirely on the new iPad Mini, the new offering Apple has crafted to bust its way into the 7-inch tablet space. And if you take a gander at our front page, you'll see that we're giving the little guy more than its fair share of love. But there's more news out there: the new, fourth generation iPad was also announced today, a full-size tablet some in the press have taken to calling the "iPad Maxi." No, ...

    As you know, the iPad Mini was announced earlier today along with a 4th Generation iPad.  I read a few of the live blogs about the event (since Apple only live streams to Apple devices), made the above graphic in Photoshop and started writing this post from my Windows 8 tablet.  I've got a 12" screen and an old heavy convertible HP TouchSmart TM2 from the age before the first Apple iPad was even announced, so it's probably time for something new.  The iPad Mini is certainly much more portable than my current Windows 8 tablet dinosaur.  It looks very comfortable to hold, probably fits ...

    We had heard that Apple might have a refreshed iPad 3 to share at today's event, but it is just taking that idea and running with it, announcing a substantially improved iPad with a new A6X SoC at its heart. Indeed, the rumored Lightning connector is present as well, but the big news is the new processor. Apple claims the A6X offers twice the performance of the A5X at number-crunching, as well as similar improvements to its graphics capabilities. Like the A5 and A5X before it, the A6X is still a dual-core chip. Apple also mentions improvements to the tablet's camera and cellular radio, but ...

    It is too early to tell whether we're looking at the iPad 4, iPad 3, or the new New iPad, but let the guessing game begin. According to recent reports a certain "iPad3,6" popped up in application analytics according to a developer. The iPad3 codename is used for the New iPad and the 1, 2, and 3 numbers after the comma describe different flavors, depending on WiFi or cellular models for various carriers. The next iPad should have had the "iPad4,x" codename but instead we're looking at a comma version. Report also has it that said iPad is running either the A6 chip found inside the iPhone 5 ...
