Rumor Mill: Apple iPad 5 Might Be Launching In September

iPad 5 Rumor

So everything looks good for Apple’s iOS 7. Some of the features aren’t really as novel (especially for Apple users who also happen to own Android devices) but hey, at least Apple’s listening to their users. It’s expected to be released this September, along with the rumored iPad 5. It’s the much-awaited follow-up to the existing iPad, and staying true to Apple’s style, you can expect the latest and the yet-to-be-released version to look the same.

The iPad 5 will have an improved battery life, and this will be due to the fact that the LED light tubes used to backlight the device’s Retina display has been reduced from two to one. It is also expected to have an updated processor and more RAM, making it perfect for rental iPad units. The second-generation mini might be released along with the tablet, but this is all speculation so far.

If the rumors are proven correct, then we should see the phablet version of the One released sometime this fall.

R2-D2 Phone Is the Droid You’re Looking For

By Chris Scott Barr

I think most of us can agree that R2-D2 is one of the coolest droids out there. So it’s only natural that the new Verizon Droid 2 is going to have a special limited edition R2-D2 version. This is likely being done to celebrate the anniversary of The Empire Strikes back, which is this year. There aren’t a lot of details floating around just yet, but we should hear more when the device is officially unveiled at this weekend’s Star Wars Celebration V.
