LeapPad2 tablet launches at $99.99

Leap Frog has announced that its LeapPad2 tablet is now available, and it's aimed squarely at your children. Leap Frog says that this is a significant upgrade over the original LeapPad, as it comes with a better CPU - an LF 2000 processor to be precise - and 4GB of memory. It also comes with a pretty tough exterior, which will definitely be a major selling point for most, as children aren't know to have that delicate touch required for more conventional tablets.

Berg’s odd Little Printer hits preorder

Berg’s odd Little Printer hits preorder

Last November I talked a bit about an odd little printer called the Little Printer. The idea behind the Little Printer was that you could enter subscriptions for your social networking sites such as Twitter that you enjoy reading in the mornings, and the printer would print them on real paper for you to read. It's an oddly not green gadget.

Microsoft already hiring for next generation Surface

Microsoft Surface won't be launching until October, but the company is wasting no time in getting the ball rolling on the next generation of Surface devices. A dozen Microsoft job ads have been discovered by TechRadar, and they're all related in one way or another to future iterations of Surface. Microsoft, for its part, maintains that the only Surface devices are the two tablets that have been announced, but that doesn't mean it isn't planning for the future.

iPad Mini rear shell spotted in the wild

Well this is interesting: as we're being inundated with rumors that Apple is set to reveal an iPad Mini, pictures of what appear to be the rear shell of such a device have surfaced on the Internet. The photos you see below were originally posted by Chinese microblogging site Sina Weibo and later picked up by Apple.pro, and even though they do seem rather questionable (to say the least), the shell also does seem to posses the quality Apple is known for. Have a look for yourself.

Majority of cell phone owners still experience dropped calls, Pew poll finds

There's no question that cell phones have made our lives easier, but they can also sometimes cause some pretty big headaches. Dropped calls, for instance, are always a major annoyance, and a new poll from the Pew Internet & American Life Project finds that the vast majority of cell phone users still find themselves dealing with them. 72% of respondents told Pew that they still experience dropped calls occasionally, which is a ridiculously large number of people when you consider how many of us own some kind of cell phone.

Even more Apple prototypes surface

Even more Apple prototypes surface

Yesterday brought news of some Apple iPad prototypes kept secret until they were revealed in court documents, and now we've got even more pictures of freshly-revealed prototypes to show you, this time of the iPhone and the iPod Touch. Take a look at this first one below, which could be another version of the iPhone 3GS. We don't really know which generation this iPhone was planned for, but the inclusion of a home button and the lack of a front-facing camera makes us think that this one came along a little later in the iPhone's life.

New Facebook and HTC smartphone reportedly coming in 2013

New Facebook and HTC smartphone reportedly coming in 2013

We've heard rumors which claim a new Android smartphone from Facebook and HTC is on the way, but today Bloomberg is reporting a mid-2013 window for the phone's arrival. Apparently, the original plan was to release the phone sometime before the sun sets on 2012, but with HTC wanting to work on different projects, this new Facebook phone has now been pushed back to mid-2013. This also gives Facebook more time to develope its modified operating system for the new phone, sources close to the project have said.
