    Apple is not only famous for its products and services, but also for how crazy things get whenever the company launches a new product, and specially a new iPhone. We've already heard that the company is making some dramatic changes to its Apple Store device reservation system, but it seems the company is preparing for more. Today we find new leaks that expose how Apple plans to handle the launch of the iPhone 6 and iPhone 6 Plus on September 19, and we sure hope it works. The leak claims that iPhone 6 and iPhone 6 Plus inventories will arrive at Apple Stores on September 17th, and that ...

    It seems that last weeks rumors did end up coming true. Oppo has the successor to its acclaimed N1 ready for action in Asia, and even though the logical step was for this phone to be called the N2, it seems the company thought otherwise. We're still wondering why the number jump with this device, but if you look at some separate leaked renders that we've found, you'll probably understand why. Oppo hasn't been specific on the date that we'll see the Oppo N3 announced, but what we do know is that the device will sport a smaller design than its predecessor, and the same swivel camera that we ...

    When Apple announced the iPhone 5s, one of the features that was talked about the most was its A7 64-bit chip. Surely to this moment we're still struggling to find the benefits behind it, but one thing we do remember is that benchmarks completely blew away any Android competitor at the time. Still, that didn't matter with Apple's conservative approach to software, and if you're wondering how it'll be with the iPhone 6, some information has already emerged. Some early GPU benchmarks have emerged of the iPhone 6 and its new A8 chip, and the results score 21,204 points in graphics performance ...

    Windows finds itself smack dab in a period of transition right now. Users are shifting away from desktop PCs and even laptops to more mobile devices like tablets, to say nothing of smartphones themselves. And as this move continues, Windows becomes a more interesting operating system to us and our mobile focus. Windows 8 already saw tablets playing a major role, but missteps with RT and the lack of a cohesive Microsoft app ecosystem didn't do the platform any favors. We're already looking forward to what's next from Microsoft, and today we see invitations go out for an event that could ...

    Just when we thought that the smartphone world was in store for a couple months of quiet, following the iPhone 6 launch and in advance of the bustling holiday season, HTC's been popping-up all over the place with rumors of new hardware. If we're not talking about plans for a Nexus 9 tablet with Google, we're wondering what's in store for next month's “double exposure” event. Our best guess yet at the latter has it featuring both a new camera accessory and the long-rumored HTC Eye selfie phone. Over the weekend, a few new rumors attempted to reveal a bit more about the Eye's hardware, ...

    Bit by bit, these rumors about an HTC Nexus 9 have become more and more convincing. Maybe that NVIDIA shout-out in some recent legal docs seemed a little more official than it likely was, but we're fielding reports of this HTC Nexus hardware from multiple angles, many pointing to a launch in just a matter of weeks. The latest evidence in support of this device comes to us in the form of an accessory, as Taiwan's version of the FCC takes a look at an HTC tablet keyboard case. The idea about a keyboard case for the Nexus 9 has been hanging around for a little over two weeks now, first ...

    Last week, we were talking about the future of Windows Phone, with reports that Microsoft is in the middle of a pretty substantial re-branding project. Specifically, we heard that efforts were underway to start moving the Nokia name away from Lumia phones, while also shifting Windows Phone over to simply “Windows.” And certainly, we've be seeing a bit of evidence on all these fronts already, but this new leak attempted to really tie them all together and give meaning to these actions. Today we check out the latest evidence in support of this transition, revealing a Windows Phone ...

    Those of you Motorola fans who have been able to see past all the buzz surrounding the Moto 360, the new Moto X and Moto G models, and all the fun little accessories the manufacturer has just announced may have noticed us talking about the possibility of having a new Droid model launch for Verizon. That all really picked up earlier this month when the old DroidLanding Twitter account got back into action, most recently hinting at a Droid with support for Motorola's Turbo Charger. We had already discussed the possibility of a Droid Turbo, a phone that may have been under development as ...

    One week ago, Motorola announced its latest Android flagship, the second-gen Moto X. Without reinventing the wheel, it managed to take much of what we loved about the first Moto X, bump up the specs, and offer more custom options – a win all around. Later this month, sales of the smartphone will begin, and just like before, we'll be seeing a good deal of carrier interest. But what if you'd rather not get your new Moto X with a carrier lock, as well as some unwanted software bloat? Motorola's no stranger to selling unlocked versions of its phones, and today we hear that its unlocked 2014 ...

    A couple days ago, HTC sent out invitations for an October 8 event, leaving us only with the words “double exposure” to hint at what might be in store. It sure sounded like something photography-related, but would this be as major as a new phone, or maybe something more in the line of new camera software? Both could still be possibilities, but a new rumor suggests HTC's also cooking-up something very different, describing a new camera accessory. According to Bloomberg's sources, HTC has been developing a tube-shaped ruggedized camera. It would have a wide-angle lens, 16MP sensor, and ...

    With the iPhone 6 launched, and IFA behind us, there's not a lot in the way of high-profile smartphone events coming up for the next several months. CES looms ahead in January, and while there are a few devices between now and then we're looking forward to, this can still feel like a bit of a slow period. A year ago, though, fall became ground zero for the arrival of the curved smartphone, with both Samsung and LG announcing such plans. But where have curved screens taken us in the days since the Galaxy Round and G Flex? We've seen curved smartwatches, like the new Gear S, as well as ...

    Like it or not, Microsoft is up to a ton of changes. At the moment we're having a hard time trying to call out on the ones that have been popular, but change usually comes with that. Microsoft is in desperate need of reinvention at times when tech startups have proven to show more mindshare than Microsoft's products, and it seems that this is going to start with Windows Phone. Yes, we know, Windows Phone as a brand is pretty much dead according to some recent information revealed. Nokia as a brand for mobile devices is also dead, and everything points to Microsoft and Lumia being the new ...

    Back at the start of the month, before we were neck-deep in IFA coverage, followed by Apple's launch event, we picked up on some new activity over at the old DroidLanding Twitter account. In the past, the account would spring to life in the weeks leading up to the arrival of some new Motorola Droid models for Verizon. A couple days back, the account delivered a new message, mentioning fast phone charging being a “big deal.” What are Motorola and Verizon up to here? Well, the key is probably the Motorola Turbo Charger, which the company introduced alongside its latest phones last week. ...

    In the weeks leading up to the iPhone 6 and iPhone 6 Plus launches, no one seemed to be sure exactly what hardware we were going to get. Would only the 4.7-inch model arrive, with the 5.5-incher delayed until later? While we ultimately saw both handsets make their debut, they did so without one of the features that seemed like such a big components to these rumors going back months and months: a very scratch-resistant sapphire screen. After all, Apple has this huge investment in GT Advanced Technologies, which has reportedly been cranking-out sapphire for some time now. By the sound of ...

    For the last couple of years, one of the most ridiculous things about buying a new iPhone on launch day, is being up at midnight Pacific time, or having to make a crazy line and leave empty handed. Apple has done some minor improvements here and there in order to ensure enough stock of devices on launch day so that you at least go home with something, but that doesn't mean people don't spend 11 hours making a line. This behavior is so predictable that people have already begun to make a line a week ago, though Apple is reportedly about to change things. In the past, each device in stock ...
