iPad mini release date and details splatter

If you're following along with the iPad mini and its imminent release, there are a collection of details you can readily assume to be true - even without Apple revealing the release date, the models, and the specifications in each device.

iPhone 5 appeal unblunted by Apple Maps says research

Teething problems with Apple Maps failed to blunt mass market enthusiasm for the iPhone 5, new research suggests, with demand significantly higher than ahead of the iPhone 4S. 451 Research and ChangeWave Research surveyed 4,270 consumers in September, and found that those saying they were "very likely" to buy an iPhone 5 were almost double the number of those saying the same thing ahead of its predecessor's release last year. Meanwhile, Windows Phone 8 could "make serious inroads in the smartphone industry" the researchers claim, surprisingly highlighting Samsung as likely to be the manufacturer that benefits the most.
