Network World’s iOnApple issued a report on a recently-revealed deposition that was given by Apple’s head of design Jonathan Ive in the patent dispute between Samsung and Apple. During the deposition, Ive was shown photos of the earliest iPad mockups, which apparently were taken at some point between 2002 and 2004. From Jonathan Ive’s testimony:

“My recollection of first seeing it is very hazy, but it was, I'm guessing, sometime between 2002 and 2004, some but it was I remember seeing this and perhaps models similar to this when we were first exploring tablet designs that ultimately became the iPad”.

What if we combine the iPhone 5 with the Galaxy S III?



isung-galaxy-v

Samsung’s Galaxy S III and Apple’s next-generation iPhone 5 are probably the best two and most highly-anticipated smartphones releases of 2012. The S III just recently starting hitting retail stores, and Apple is expected to unveil its next iPhone later this fall, in October.

Choosing between the two is indeed a tough choice for many consumers. Both handsets will obviously have their benefits. But what if you didn't have to choose? What if you could have the best of both worlds? Techradar brought us another interesting concept called iSung Galaxy V.

It is a mashup of an iPhone 5, based on recent rumors, and Samsung’s Galaxy S III. The handset features big screen, iOS, cameras, NFC, Samsung’s Ultra-Shutter tech, and even a memory card slot.

Apple Wins Preliminary Injunction Against U.S. Sales of Samsung Galaxy Nexus



samsung_galaxy_nexus

Just several days after Apple won a preliminary injunction prohibiting U.S. sales of Galaxy Tab tablet, news agency Reuters reports that on Friday the same judge has granted a preliminary injunction that would ban sales of another Samsung’s product, Galaxy Nexus smartphone. Judge Koh said in her ruling:

"Apple has made a clear showing that, in the absence of a preliminary injunction, it is likely to lose substantial market share in the smartphone market and to lose substantial downstream sales of future smartphone purchases and tag-along products".

The new injunction is much more important victory for Apple than the injunction against Galaxy Tab sales, as evidenced by the bond in the amount of $95 million that Apple posted in order for decision to come into effect. The bond money would be paid to Samsung should the injunction be overturned by the court later.

Foxconn may buy more Sharp shares, fueling Apple television rumors



television

Foxconn Chairman Terry Gou revealed at his company's annual meeting on Monday that the company is now in talks with Sharp to buy more their shares. Foxconn is Apple's primary manufacturing partner, responsible for assembling devices like the iPhone, iPad and Macs. And Sharp is already a major display supplier for Apple, including Retina displays for the new iPad. That is why it’s not surprisingly that these rumors once again revive speculation that their alliance could play a key role in Apple's rumored television set.

Samsung Galaxy S III uses identical Sony-made camera seen in iPhone 4S



12.06.01-Camera

iFixit in conjunction with chip analysts ChipWorks tore down Samsung's new Galaxy S III smartphone, revealing that the device is sourcing a newer version of the same Sony-made camera used in the iPhone 4S.

ChipWorks confirmed on Friday that the backside-illuminated sensor found in Samsung's new Galaxy S III handset is being sourced from Sony and may be a newer version of the component used in Apple's iPhone 4S. While iFixit initially claimed that the sensor is "basically the same unit" used in the iPhone 4S, further examination of the chip revealed that it could be a slightly refreshed product. It seems that the camera's sensor is where the similarities between the two devices end, however, as Samsung uses its own memory and optics to complete the unit.

Apple ordering screens sized at least 4" for next iPhone



iphone6

The Wall Street Journal reported on Wednesday that Apple began placing orders for a new, larger screen (it will measure "at least 4 inches diagonally") for the next iPhone. Production of the screens is set to begin in the next few months.

Rumors have suggested for some time that the next iPhone will be a major redesign, overhauling the look of the handset that has remained since the launch of the iPhone 4 in mid-2010. A larger screen would be a major change for the device, and could require developers to update their applications to take advantage of the larger display.
