The iPhone has been the center piece for many Chinese knockoffs over the past few years, but as the Chinese smartphone market has evolved, most of the poor-build products have been left behind. These days we are instead greeted with cheap but durable, reasonably spec’d devices.
I’ve always figured that I could tinker with my mobile devices however I see fit, as long as I’m not infringing on some other laws about invasion of privacy or anything like that. It seems that the United States government agrees with me,

Belkin’s new WeMo works anywhere in the house, outside or even while you are thousands of miles away from home.
Freemium social games do not sound too attractive, but Kingdom Royale was definitely worth taking a chance on. And surely, I was not disappointed. Kingdom Royale is a medieval era resource and battle game where you can join up with friends or take over other players’ land. The game draws you in immediately and keeps you coming back for more. It is great for casual play if you want to jump in for a few minutes, but you can unlocks its full potential by purchasing the item needed to speed up gameplay.
It looks like the problems with the new Apple Maps aren’t the only ones plaguing the iPhone 5. It turns out that the autocorrect feature is adding “random” accents to anything you type in Italian.
Remember back when Mobile Magazine covered a Samsung patent regarding smell and the ability to shoot perfume? Apparently Samsung isn’t the only one that is looking into such an option, now the Chaku Perfume Company is preparing its own “ChatPerf” accessory for use on the iPhone.
Heading over to Apple’s website, you will find that the average arrival time for the iPhone 5 is now estimated at 3-4 weeks. Why so long? The obvious reason is that they sold like hotcakes and that Apple is having trouble coming up with enough shipments. A new report suggests an alternative, though. The problem has to do with the aluminum casing and the scratching problems that have been reported.
A new product by a start-up business on Indigogo is reshaping the way cases interact with our smart phones. This case isn’t just about protecting your iPhone; it’s also about turning it into something that makes the extra thickness do more than just add an extra layer of padding.
When it comes to Android fans, most of them are more than happy to poke fun at Apple’s iOS whenever they have the chance. With that in mind, the so-named “Fake iPhone 5 Launcher” might have been made partially as a joke or a prank to tease iPhone 5 users, but it is a very real and working launcher released over at XDA Developers.
A new rumor suggests that at least three people ‘close to Apple’ have confirmed that there is already a 16:9 iPad in the works.
We were told at the Apple A6 chip inside the new iPhone 5 was faster, but it turns out that it’s even faster than the 1.02GHz previously reported. A more recent benchmark has it running at 1.3GHz.

We recently reported that many iPhone 5 users are having problems with their new phones arriving with scuffs and dents. Unfortunately, the iPhone 5’s problems don’t end there. Apparently there is a keyboard issue, as well.

What if you went to pull out that brand new phone only to find it wasn’t so shiny after all? This is the nightmare that several new iPhone 5 users are now reporting.
The assumption is that when you buy the iPhone 5 on subsidy that it’d be locked to that service provider. That’s mostly true, except when you buy it from Verizon, because it comes unlocked.
The iPhone 5 is the new big boy in town, but what if you aren’t quite ready to give up on your iPhone 4S just yet? The iExpander might be a great choice for you. It can make the iPhone 4 or 4S bigger, faster and stronger than ever before.
How well did the iPhone 5 announcement go? Some users out there on the web have complained that it might not be as hardware-capable as many of the high-end Android devices out there, but is that going to slow down its success? Apparently not.
In the past Apple has had problems with shortages when launching new iPhone devices, and it seems that the iPhone 5 might not be any different. Apple already added the iPhone 5, new iPods and tons of accessories to its online store but something has started to happe- the dates for shipping have begun to slip.
The U.S. Market might be a leader when it comes to 4G LTE, but what about other cutting-edge tech like HD Voice? One of the new features announced for the iPhone 5 was support of HD voice, which increases fidelity of voice calls.
T-Mobile and Orange recently announced they were coming together with EE to bring 4G LTE to the United Kingdom. At the time of the announcement they planed to roll out several great devices such as the Samsung Galaxy S3 LTE, Nokia Lumia 920, Nokia Lumia 820, and others. That wasn’t it though, one device was purposely left off: the iPhone 5.
The iPhone 5 has arrived, but what does that mean for the iPhone 4S? Which is the better deal and how do they compare? While the iPhone will run you $199 for a 16GB model, you can get a 4S with 16GB of memory for just $99 with the same two year contract.
Apple’s newest iPhone announcement is coming, and soon. With less than a day before the announcement we are bound to hear lots of last minute rumors or bits of news that potentially confirm some of the things we already know about the new devices coming tomorrow.
This iPhone 5 concept video is pretty dramatic to say the least. Siri goes as far as tracking your packages to determine arrival time, reschedules your canceled flights, oh, and not to mention the pinch to zoom that expands your iPhone 5 in to an iPad Mini, and then a full size iPad.
A Chinese pop star by the name of Jimmy Lin has just attracted over 100,000 comments in only a matter of a few hours. His post was through the popular site, Sina Weibo- which is sort of like the Chinese version of Facebook and Twitter combined. What was the post that is generating so many comments and large amounts of buzz? The Chinese pop star claims to have in his possession an iPhone 5. You might wonder how a Chinese pop star would get his hands on the iPhone 5, well before its release.
The new iPhone is coming soon, or so we hope. One question you have to wonder though, will they be able to handle demand? A new report coming from Reuters gives us potentially bad news.
While a September 12th iPhone event is supposedly in the works, Apple has remained quiet about anything possibly related to a new iPhone. That being said, actions often speak louder than words.
Yes, I suppose you could rely on meteorologists to give you a weather report, but they’re not taking readings outside of your house and they certainly aren’t giving you real-time data about the inside of your house.
When it comes to upcoming products, few have more excitement or speculation surrounding them then the iPhone does. We’ve seen batteries, faceplates and just about everything imaginable for the new iPhone so far- yet here comes yet another leak, this time including what might be an NFC chip.
Now, there is further evidence that the iPhone 5 release date will be September, thanks to an employee announcement from Verizon Wireless. You see, they blacked out vacation requests for the period covering September 21 to September 30.
Let’s face it, most smartphone users out there use there devices for what? Random apps, emails, a few text messages? How about calling? Not so much, huh? The truth is that ‘calling people’ is probably at the backburner of reasons why you make use of your smart-phone, ironically.
Want to preorder the new iPhone? You can! – if the idea of preordering something from a Chinese e-commerce site a month over more before its reveal doesn’t bother you. The site is called Taobao and has no real information offered on the new iPhone, instead taking preorders completely out of faith it seems. You can reserve your new iPhone for a deposit of 1,00 yaun, or $160, or you can flat out purchase the unit for 6,999 yuan, or $1,100. The sellers can’t promise a specific delivery time though, so yah, sounds extremely legit huh?
Now, we’re hearing that Apple will make the formal reveal of the next iPhone on September 12th and that the first batch will become available on September 21st.
We’ve seen quite a few ‘leaks’ of new iPhone parts lately, ranging from a unibody case to the new iPhone battery. This isn’t surprising, with an iPhone release event planned for September. Now we get another part leak, this time the new iPhone’s logicboard. Is it legit? It may be, but considering there is little labeling on the board, this is probably a prototype.
One of the most respected names when it comes to audio equipment has to be JBL and this is particularly true of their iPod and iPhone docks. And now you can score a great deal on the JBL On Stage Micro III.
Back in July, we took a look at a new case leak brought out by iLab Factory. At the time we talked about how the photo’s and video looked like a well-done early iPhone prototype. Now it seems that Ubergizmo has taken an in-depth look into the iLab Factory design and has come to their own conclusion, they believe this is likely the real deal.
According to 9to5Mac, a reliable source has sent them images of the new iPhone’s battery pack, a higher capacity model sporting a capacity of 1440mAh.

Regardless of your intentions, if you’ve always dreamed of the idea of being able to have temporary numbers routed directly to your iPhone, you’re going to love the new “Burner” app.
How much would you be willing to pay for obsolete technology that doesn’t hold a candle to today’s gear? A few bucks? Maybe nothing, right? If so, you certainly aren’t an ambitious collector with money to burn. Recently two sellers put up an original, first-gen iPhone in factory-sealed glory at the massive price of $10,000.
It’s pretty much for certain that the new iPhone will be revealed to us next month and we’re fully expecting a larger display, but it looks like the new iOS6 comes with an extra bonus to take advantage of that extra screen real estate.
The FWP3200D might not be a good enough replacement for a full DJ system, but its pretty close with its unique lighting system, 300 W RMS output, and the existence of basic Djing tools such as dual microphone sockets and a crossfade. The speakers even are designed to support the djay iOS app.
