Another day, another iPad 3 rumour; this time its back shell has apparently flashed its inners to the camera. If the component is genuine it points to a larger battery; a bigger camera, and a different LCD screen from the iPad 2.
Nokia’s latest and greatest, the Lumia 900 has been rumoured for a UK release in June thanks to a short-lived Carphone Warehouse coming soon page. The phone retailer had a pre-registration page up, which confirmed the flagship phone for the UK, “expected June”.
Treat this as purely rumour, but a mysterious, suspiciously Galaxy S III-looking phone made a very brief appearance in a Samsung produced “pushing the boundaries” CES video from its press conference last week. You’ll have to skip to 7:11 below to see it; blink and you’ll miss it.
Either someone’s made a right balls-up, or Samsung’s got a non-LTE-packing Galaxy S II HD on the way for the UK. Mobi-city, a relatively new online mobile phone store, put up an ad on its front page for a “bigger, better, newer version of the popular S II” with a “larger, higher resolution screen and more battery power”.
A leaked Windows Phone roadmap shows what we've got to look forward to in 2012. In the short term a batch of cheapy phones for the masses, but by the end of next year we could be looking at "superphones".
