by 54 comments

HTC has broken its bad streak with the HTC One and are looking to continue improving by stepping up marketing. How? By hiring Iron Man himself, Robert Downey Jr., to promote HTC’s phones.

Bloomberg reports that RDJ won’t be playing any of his famous characters, he will be himself, which is just as awesome (though admittedly Iron Man and the metal-clad HTC One would have gone well together). Read more »

Nokia EOS unibody leaks again, this time in yellow

by 23 comments

Another day, another Nokia EOS leak. The body of the upcoming super phone from the Finns has leaked in a multitude of colors, and this time around it’s yellow.

By the way, the body seems to have been photographed on the exact same surface as the one from yesterday’s leak. This image doesn’t definitively resolve the question “polycarbonate or aluminum”, but along with the number of colors we have seen seems to weigh in favor of polycarbonate. Read more »

by 77 comments

The iPad mini is selling well and Apple might be thinking of adopting its narrow bezel design for the big iPad too. Photos of a prototype iPad 5 along with cases for it have leaked, but we only have someone’s lap to give us a sense of scale (otherwise it might just be an iPad mini, take this with a pinch of salt).

The iPad uses a 4:3 screen, which makes it quite wide and the iPad mini got around that with very thin bezels on the left and right of the screen. Read more »
