The company has since released several different tablet models, and it's been rumored for quite some time that the online mega-retailer would be offering their own smartphone at some point. Today, we're hearing word that Foxconn will be manufacturing said smartphone, and Amazon just put in a five-million unit order with the Chinese manufacturer.

Next iPad mini rumored to get Retina display

We're not sure if it's just a slow news day (since it's Friday and all), but we're hearing rumors of something that's extremely likely to happen anyway, that it shouldn't even be a rumor -- that being a Retina display on the second-generation iPad mini. Apple didn't stuff one in with this first iPad mini, which was disappointing to a lot of users, but it seems the company is finally ready this time around.

If Apple can ditch Intel, it will

The Apple rumor-mill is cyclical, and one tale refuses to die: Apple ousting Intel from its MacBooks, and replacing x86 chips with ARM-based alternatives. The story surfaces periodically, just as it has done today, with titters of increasing "confidence" within Apple's engineering teams that Intel will be eventually ditched in favor of the company's own A-series SoCs as currently found within the iPad and iPhone. Not today, so the whispers go, but eventually, and what's most interesting is that we're likely already seeing the signs of the transition in Apple's newest models.

iPad mini Review: Apple aims for the everyman

iPad mini Review: Apple aims for the everyman

It's an iPad, but smaller. Boiling down the iPad mini to its core premise may not tell you everything you need to know about the 7.9-inch tablet, but it does set the scene: Apple's legendary build quality, iOS and the hundreds of thousands of tablet apps in the App Store, and a guarantee that it's going to polarize consumers. Steve Jobs memorably dismissed smaller tablets, and yet Apple couldn't have been more enthusiastic about its mini model at the launch event last week. Read on to find out whether, for a small slate, the iPad mini is actually a big deal.

iPad mini goes to school as Apple education focus tipped

Apple's iPad mini event will see particular emphasis on the smaller tablet's role in educational settings, sources claim, as part of a push to secure lucrative school district contracts to put IT equipment in classrooms. The educational capabilities of the slate - believed to run iOS, like its larger sibling, but on a 7.85-inch screen - will be one of a number of key themes at tomorrow's event, Bloomberg's source suggests, with experts indicating that the rumored $249 starting price could prove the tipping point.

A Samsung Nexus 10 won’t solve Google’s tablet problem

A Samsung Nexus 10 won’t solve Google’s tablet problem

Google, if the rumors are true, has turned to long-time Android supporter (and arguably the only OEM really making a success out of Android) Samsung for the next Nexus tablet, and unlike the budget Nexus 7 it's a direct challenge to the iPad. Blasting past Apple's "Retina" boasts with a 10.1-inch, 2,560 x 1,600 display, there's no doubting that such a slate would be a joy to the eyes, but it'll take more than ribald resolution to address Google's lingering Android tablet problem, and no amount of fancy Samsung hardware can do that.

Google 10-inch Samsung Nexus tablet tipped to roast iPad 3

Google's next Nexus tablet is likely to be a co-branded collaboration with Samsung, insiders claim, and giving the Nexus 7 a high-resolution 10-inch bigger brother. Unlike the budget $199 Nexus 7, NPD DisplaySearch analyst Richard Shim tells CNET, the Samsung-made "Nexus 10" will be "a high-end device" that uses a 2,560 x 1,600 display for a 299 ppi pixel density, besting what Apple currently offers on its Retina display equipped new iPad.
