While just 15% of the load has been tipped to be assigned to Pegatron, the iPhone 6 appears to be headed to full production, with multiple manufacturers in play.

At the Hong Kong Electronics Fair 2014 (Spring) exhibition this week a number of cases for the iPhone 6 were shown by insatiable protective accessory handlers. Here we find a relatively mediocre source for information on the device as - quite likely - their sources are the same as ours. In other words: use these images as a basic guide, but don’t put too much faith into the lot.
Specifications for the Amazon Kindle Fire phone - or whatever they’ll end up calling it - have leaked. Photos of the phone have leaked as well, confirming suspicions had by several sources over the past few weeks, allowing us a peek at what may very well be a combination of elements able to give pause to iPhone users. Will you be one of them?
Supposing you’re a heavy user of Apple’s personal assistant Siri, you’ll be glad to know that the company has just acquired a company that’ll make her a whole lot better. Apple has acquired Novauris Technologies, a group co-founded by Dr James Baker, a founder of Dragon Systems.
