iPad Mini Released - Apple Announces 7.8 Inch iPad Mini

 

 

If you have followed our recent posts, we were discussing about today's event where Apple had plans to announce new iPad. We'll, it is indeed true and here is the big news, Apple has just announced new iPad Mini with a smaller screen which is quite obvious to Eddy Cue's statement that there exists a 7 inch tablet market and so Apple needs to have product of their own right into that market. The new iPad mini has the same display when talking about pixels so the developers need not make new apps to support iPad mini. In Fact  they wouldn't even have to update their existing apps, the apps will just work as if they were designed for iPad mini. 


Here's an overview of the new features of iPad Mini:

Its 7.2 mm thin and that makes it 23% thinner than the iPad and as Phil says, it is as thin as a pencil. The new iPad mini is 53% lighter than the original iPad and is as lighter as a note pad. iPad mini comes in both white as well as black color. Compared with Nexus 7, iPad mini is a clear winner ( we'll discuss about this later) There are over 275,000 apps that are ready and designed specifically for the iPad and since iPad mini shares the same display resolution, these apps work for iPad mini too. The new iPad mini features a dual core A5 chip It has an improved Facetime camera with an amazing 5 mp rear camera. iPad mini is designed to work on LTE networks New improved reversible lightening connector. All these features, yet the iPad mini provides a stunning 10 hours of battery backup. Stylish smart covers in various colors. The new iPad mini will start from a price range of $329

Apple’s All New Lightning Connector - Everything You Need To Know

    The new iPhone 5, along with the new iPods, comes with a new connector that Apple has named the Lightning connector. This 8 pin connector is much smaller than the previous 30 pin connector that Apple has been using for the past decade or so. This big yet subtle change in the dock connector will directly affect all those who already own any of the Apple devices and of course those who purchase the new ones. If you happen to want to use your Apple accessories for the new iPhone 5, you will have to buy an adapter. The other alternative is to purchase the new accessories that are coming out in the fall for the new ions devices.     New Lightening Connector From Apple According to Apple, the new connector has some serious benefits to offer :   The reduction in size (by an exact 80%) means that Apple gets the chance to fit many more components into the brand new better than ever iPhone 5 The connector is reversible, so you need not worry about which is the right side to plug in. The data flow will be faster with the new cable. The change is quite annoying for a number of existing Apple customers. Buying a converter will cost you $30 at least, and the lightning/ USB cable comes for $20. But, in all fairness, this measure is not a way to force people to buy something new; Apple has been pretty consistently merciless in term of adopting the latest and chucking out outdated technology.

Apple will make a bit of benefit on its new sales of course. The accessories market for iPods, iPads and iPhones pulls in a significant percentage of revenue. According to some estimates, Apple purchased accessories worth $2-$3 billion in fiscal the previous year. Moreover, much of the accessories mad by Apple, such as adapters and cables, are pretty much pure profit considering they cost very little to make in the first place.

  The new dock also means that some of the third-party accessory manufacturers get opportunities to sell new docks, cases, chargers and all kinds of accessories that are connected via the port at the bottom of the iPhone/ iPod.  These accessories will become available with major brands such as Bowers & Wilkins, Bose and JBL around the holidays.   Therefore, the new iPad is the only Apple device of the current generation to be using the 30 pin connector. This will obviously change soon, since any move made by Apple with one device rolls out to the others as well.

Gone are days when you use your mobile phone only to make calls and send and receive SMS to and from your contacts. Now, mobile phones are getting smarter than ever. They can have extended features through apps easily accessible and installed from the online market. We use smart phones not only for playing games but also for surfing the web, reading eBooks, listening to music, organizing task lists and locating an address among others. Tons of smartphones have boomed in these past years, and prepare again to be mesmerized by two of them. In this article, we will tackle a standoff between the soon-to-be-launched iPhone 5 and LG Optimus 4X HD    Review Items    1. Processor Specifications Rumor has it that the iPhone 5 will be fitted with an A6 quad core processor with a speed of up to 2.0 gigahertz. This quality performance speed upgrade is not only expected to improve the response speed of the smartphone. Also, it will enhance the battery life now that it would have four processors to use up. In comparison, LG's Optimus 4X HD is equipped with a quad core Cortex-A9 setup clocked at 1.5 gigahertz. This configuration is based on Nvidia's Tegra 3 chipset with a Geforce ULP GPU. Both devices are blisteringly fast, giving users a smooth experience in handling apps even heavy on graphics and multimedia. 
2. Operating System The Apple iPhone 5 may most probably run with the latest software, the iOS6, featuring a fourth-generation long-term evolution to give a speedier mobile internet connectivity and data transfer rate. Advantages for users are clearer and crisper voice and video calls. This updated operating system may as well incorporate 3D imaging capabilities, giving more excitement to users. Not quite matching for equivalence is version 4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich OS of the Optimus 4X HD. LG’s contender runs on this latest version of Google's Android. Expectation is that it will have greater stability and will inhabit an additional strong point which is the quick-app switcher control for multi-tasking.    3. Design The iPhone 5 will have a four-inch screen size display, while the LG Optimus 4X HD has a bigger screen size of 4.7-inch. Its large size does not entail to the device being better. On the contrary, users who are not used to holding bigger phones in one hand may protest for its bulkiness. Guys who don’t carry bags but put their handheld devices in their jeans pockets might be forced to carry a pouch for it. It is still unsure if the iPhone will be clad in a curvaceous or boxed outer design. However, its measurements would most likely be 122.4 x 64.3 x 8.6 MM and its weight would be 144.6 grams. LG’s handset will have rounded edges and a minimalistic textured back panel, measuring at 131.8 x 68.3 x 9.7 MM and weighing about 145 grams.  
4. Camera The two smartphones here each has great camera specifications. They both have an astounding 8 MP back-illuminated sensor with a 3264 x 2448 pixel resolution, LED flash. The camera is capable of geographical tags, autofocus of the subject with touch, and face and smile detection capacity. Apart from this, they also have a secondary camera for the video calls. The iPhone 5 wins in this round for its 5MP front-facing camera versus LG Optimus 4X HD’s 1.3MP camera.    5. Memory Storage The LG Optimus 4X HD and iPhone 5 both are capable of holding up to 1 GB of RAM. The LG smartphone is limited to having only one model with 16 GB internal memory, while the iPhone 5 will have three assortments: 16 GB, 32 GB and 64 GB. The LG device compensates its loss as it can accommodate a micro SD cards that can support up to 32GB of memory.    Verdict Smartphones have taken all over the world by storm. People of all ages are eagerly anticipating for their next releases and speculating over the upgraded specifications and enhancement constantly. In the world of technology, the brand and model ruling over the market cannot be pretty much assumed because innovations and creativity in the advancement of features can go extremes. Based on these review items though, the iPhone 5 indisputably wins.

iPad Mini And Redesigned iPad With Lightening Connector Releasing Tomorrow - Geeky Apple - The new iPad 3, iPhone iOS6 Jailbreaking and Unlocking Guides

iPad Mini And Redesigned iPad With Lightening Connector Releasing Tomorrow

Tomorrow is the big day when Apple is going to announce a redesigned iPad mini and as the name suggests,, this iPad will be of a smaller size with 7.85 inch diagonally. The reason for introducing a 7 inch iPad is to compete with Google's Nexus 7 and Amazon's Kindle Fire. It is quite obvious that the new iPad mini will feature a lightening connector like that of iPhone 5.

The concept of a 7 inch iPad was earlier coined while Steve Jobs was still alive but he wouldn't accept it considering it as a waste because of the smaller screen size and instead proposed 10 inch screen as a minimum requirement. The ideology behind the 7 inch iPad came from Apple's senior vice president, Eddy Cue who strongly believes that there is a market in 7 inch screen devices and hence Apple should have a smaller iPad too.

It is a known fact that Apple gives a lot of thinking before releasing a product and the reason behind having a 7.85 inch iPad instead of 7 inch is because this will help the developers an easy way to upgrade their apps. With a 7.85 inch screen, the iPad mini can still run all the applications that run on iPad and iPhone. The only work that developers will have to upgrade their apps would be to adjust the corners to match the iPad mini screen.

Internally, the iPad mini is believed to be built using the same components as last year's iPad 2. That means the same CPU (A5), same RAM (512 MB) and same GPU. It also means the screen is not expected to be a "Retina" display. Instead, it will be same 1024x768 resolution as the iPad 2 -- though at a higher pixel density due to the smaller screen. - Macrumors

Apple Wins Against Motorola As Judge Orders Further Investigation ~ Geeky Apple - The new iPad 3, iPhone iOS6 Jailbreaking and Unlocking Guides

Apple Wins Against Motorola As Judge Orders Further Investigation ~ Geeky Apple - The new iPad 3, iPhone iOS6 Jailbreaking and Unlocking Guides | Apple News - From competitors to owners | Scoop.it
Apple vs motorola patents lawsuit Apple wins over Motorola in patent copyright issue Samsung Apple Motorola Siri court hearing ban on imports iPhone...

 

This week has been lucky for Apple as it seems pretty clear that Apple's win over Samsung has been a tough one. Apple has recently won the lawsuit against Samsung for infringing the intellectual property of the company by illicitly using its patents. The trail ended with Samsung being ordered to pay Apple over 1.05 Billion in compensation for copying Apple's patented designs of iPhone and iPad.   Recently Google has filed a lawsuit that Apple has violated several patents of Motorola in making the voice assistant Siri which happens to be the aggressive marketing source for Apple. If the allegations are proved to be true, the results could be devastating for Apple as it could lead in the permanent ban of iPhone in the United States. Further more, Apple would have to pay heavy compensation to Motorola (Now Google) for the losses and the lawsuit charges. 

 

Call it a lucky day for Apple as the judge has ordered further investigation in the issue instead of imposing immediate ban on the sales of iPhone. This, however might infuriate Google with the ball landing in the wrong court. The ITC says that upon an initial determination, Apple may have infringed on a non-standard essential patent, which could potentially lead to an import ban. In particular, the said patent is for the “sensor controlled user interface for portable communication device.”


The ITC, however, has decided to remand further action and investigation on the matter to Administrative Law Judge Thomas B. Pender, reports FOSS Patents.

Apple was cleared with respect to three of Motorola’s patents-in-suit, including the aforementioned standard-essential one. But with respect to U.S. Patent No. 6,246,862 on a “sensor controlled user interface for portable communication device”, a non-standard-essential patent, the investigation was remanded to Administrative Law Judge Thomas B. Pender. The judge had found claim 1 of that patent indefinite and, as a result, not violated. The ITC has reversed his indefiniteness finding. As a result, there could (but need not) be a finding of a violation with respect to this patent, and an import ban.


With Apple's patent war with Samsung just coming to an end, seems like there are others who are more interesting in bringing Apple to the courts of law. If the initial investigations prove that Apple has abruptly copied the Motorola patents then the result would lead to an immediate ban on imports. From now on, its just a wait and watch game for Apple and Motorola.
