Back in 2010, Apple attained the IP rights to a technology which it may very well be using in a unibody design for its next generation iPhone 5. This new smartphone, code-named iPhone 5 for now due to legacy naming conventions and the fact that no Apple product is really real until they themselves announce it, has been tipped by several sources this week as having parts made with Liquidmetal technology. What could this mean for the iPhone 5 and its ability to take on the rest of the high-end smartphone world this year?

Verizon: We sold more iPhones in Q1 than all LTE phones

Verizon has spilled the beans on iPhone sales, announcing during the carrier's Q1 2012 financial results call that it has sold 3.2m of Apple's smartphones.

Nokia Lumia 900 vs iPhone 4: The $99 Showdown

Nokia Lumia 900 vs iPhone 4: The $99 Showdown

Big news today is Nokia's US re-entry, with the Lumia 900 scoring some cautiously congratulatory reviews - ours included - at an ambitious AT&T price point and the heft of Microsoft behind it. Of course, the LTE Lumia goes up against a serious smartphone heavyweight, with Apple's iPhone 4 dominating the same $99 niche. It may be the last-gen model, but the iPhone 4 is still a mighty popular device and the iOS and App Store combination makes for a strong argument.

iPhone 5 to have 4.6-inch Retina display

iPhone 5 to have 4.6-inch Retina display

This next generation iPhone, whatever it may end up being called by the end of the year when it will almost certainly be announced and launched, will continue the iPhone trend of having a Retina-quality display, this time at a larger 4.6-inch size.

South Korean media speaking with an unnamed industry source have bucked the trend of speaking on a display size the same as what's been released already, saying a boost is in order.

i4Siri brings Siri to jailbroken iOS 5 devices

There have been a couple of theories as to why Siri hasn’t made an appearance on devices other than the iPhone 4S. Is it simply to shift more units of the flagship iPhone, or is it because the 4S packs a custom noise reduction chip? In any event, it hasn’t stopped enterprising hackers from porting the personal assistant to other iOS devices, and now there’s a relatively simple way of doing it yourself.
