The next-generation iPad mini, a device tipped to work with what's essentially iPad 2 specifications save it's smaller display, has appeared in several high-definition photos this week. The device appears here from Tech163 as a slightly more blunt version of the larger iPad 3rd generation device on the market today, including here a new dock connector hole and two sets of machine-drilled speaker holes. This device's docking port is likely matching that of the rumored 9-pin connector set for the iPhone 5.

iPhone 5 dock and display production cuts early supply

A report from China today suggests that suppliers behind the production of the new iPhone - or iPhone 5, if you prefer, are finding manufacturing numbers to be a bit lower than planned due to shortage of materials. This report comes from DigiTimes, a publication that has a mixed record for accuracy, but has produced early Asia-based supply news well in advance of official Apple sources in the past. Numbers of iPhone 5 shipments are said to be hitting below 15 million this season where Apple had requested that they be in excess of 20 million for the holiday months.

The next generation in Apple USB connector cables has appeared in a relatively clear photo presented to the world hoping for every detail they can get on the iPhone 5 - another piece of Apple hardware that's not yet even been announced by the manufacturer.

This week we've got our hands on the Archos 101 XS tablet (part of the G10 series) with included keyboard dock, featuring a dual-core OMAP 4470 processor and a 10.1-inch display as well as Android 4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich. This tablet brings on a nearly completely vanilla version of Android, here bringing on an un-skinned version of the software essentially the same as the Google Nexus lineup of tablets and smartphones. The unique build here is the star though, this tablet being rather unique with its keyboard dock that connects magnetically and protects the display when you're not using the device.

This afternoon the folks at iResQ have snapped a few photos of what appears to be the back shell of the next-generation iPhone ready for release next month by Apple. This device appears to be essentially the same thickness as the previous generation iPhone 4/4S, but a major change appears in the bottom end of the smartphone's final build.

It appears that the next-generation so-called iPad mini may have had a part leak out this afternoon with no less than a new mini dock connector attached to it. This part has been shared with NWE and "examined" by iFixit, both parties suggesting that it does indeed appear to be an official Apple device component for an unknown future tablet-sized device. What's strange about this part, however, is that it's got 10 pins in its dock rather than 8 or 16.

Pyle Audio PLTTB8UI Record Player Review

Pyle Audio PLTTB8UI Record Player Review

I'm going to go right ahead and assume that most of the people checking out this review are here because they're confused about why SlashGear would review a vinyl record player. I think that's fair to wonder. There are two reasons, the first of which is the fact that this record player not only has audio input via a convenient little smartphone dock. The second is this: I've still got a massive stack of records that I want to play, and I'm certain that there's a massive population of readers out there that have their own, too - you don't just throw those things away!
