SlashGear Evening Wrap-Up: November 27, 2012

Welcome to Tuesday evening everyone! This afternoon we heard that Apple's Richard Williamson has been ousted in an iOS Maps switch-up, while Nintendo confirmed the rumored Wii Mini - but it's only coming to Canada and won't have Internet capabilities. Microsoft has sold 40 million Windows 8 licenses since the OS launched last month, and even managed to sell 750,000 Xbox 360s during the week of Black Friday, despite the fact that the console is viewed as aging hardware by many.

Foxconn reportedly making Microsoft’s Surface phone

Foxconn reportedly making Microsoft’s Surface phone

With Windows Phone 8 getting so much attention around the Internet, it's only natural that rumors of a Microsoft-branded smartphone are beginning to pop up as well. We heard about a Microsoft smartphone earlier this month, but now the phone has crept its way back into headlines, with DigiTimes reporting that infamous manufacturer Foxconn will be making the new device. The phone will apparently be set to ship in mid-2013, so if it actually exists, it may not be much longer before we get official confirmation from Microsoft.

Apple partner Foxconn reportedly USA-bound

In a surprise move that would make very little obvious sense to the average consumer, a report this week has Foxconn opening a manufacturing plant in the USA in the very near future. This would have the main manufacturer of Apple mobile devices such as the iPad and the iPhone coming to the home country of the iCreator, and according to Digitimes, they've got sources who confirm such a move. Foxconn has been the subject of many reports over the past several years regarding their production yields, manufacturing processes, and visits by Apple's own Tim Cook.

SlashGear Evening Wrap-Up: November 7, 2012

We did it folks - we made it through another election, which means that we finally get a break from those endless political ads. It won't be long before those ads are playing all over the place again, so savor the moment while you can. We found out today that President Obama set Twitter records with that a tweet that was shared more 600,000 times, and Apple was hit with a hefty fine in a case over patents related to FaceTime. Foxconn is saying that it's still having issues keeping up with iPhone 5 production, and Pixar has named a new building after Steve Jobs.

SlashGear Evening Wrap-Up: October 17, 2012

It's time to begin counting down to the weekend once again, because we've hit Wednesday evening. Today we heard that the iPad Mini could launch on November 2, which makes sense considering that date is just over a week after Apple's October 23 press event. Later in the day, more sources were mentioning a November 2 release date for the iPad Mini, as well as spilling a few more details about the long-rumored device. The Isis NFC mobile payment system will apparently be launching on October 22, and Microsoft said that Internet Explorer 10 will be coming to Windows 7 in mid-November.

Foxconn: iPhone 5 “most difficult” to make (but we’re getting better)

Foxconn: iPhone 5 “most difficult” to make (but we’re getting better)

Apple's iPhone 5 is "the most difficult device that Foxconn has ever assembled" the Cupertino company's production partner has admitted, though there are promises of speedier production as workers get the hang of it. Shortages of the latest Apple smartphone have affected the US and international sales, with a roughly 3-4 week shipping estimate for online orders. That should hopefully ease soon, an unnamed Foxconn exec told the WSJ, with productivity apparently "improving day by day."
