Applepressevent

Apple has set an official date, 12th September for a press release. And it is natural on our part to speculate if it’s the new iPhone or iPad Mini that is going to hit the shelves near us soon. Lately, there have been lot of rumors that the Cupertino Calif.-based company is in plans to launch its latest next-gen iPhone. Slated to take place at the Yerba Buena Center for the Arts in San Francisco, the event is most likely to unveil the new iPhone- one that might not be called iPhone 5! The invitation sent out by Apple has a white background with 12 number written in black, which casts a faint, shadowy number 5 so maybe it is called iPhone 5 or it just emphasized the fact that it is the 5th iPhone by Apple. We can’t really comment much. However, it can also be called the ‘New [+more]

Apple triumphs over Samsung in the patent case. But the legal battles are far from over for the world’s most valuable company. Now it’s Apple Inc. vs. Google Motorola. Apple Inc. is recently reported to rely upon the popularity of its devices in a hope to ruin Google’s Motorola Mobility’s attempt to put a ban on the import of its iPhone and iPad in the US market. iPhone and iPad are two of the best-selling devices and the firm calls them too good for the US to put a ban. Today marks the day when the U.S. International Trade Commission in Washington will announce whether iPad and iPhone violate Motorola Mobility patents, and if so, whether it will put a stop on them from being imported into the US market from Asia. The ITC is also reported to consider whether to limit use of import bans in disputes over patents, [+more]
