Welcome to Thursday evening, folks - just one more work day and the glorious weekend is here once again. This afternoon we heard that both the iPad Mini and the 13-inch Retina MacBook Pro - neither of which officially exist yet, remember - have been delayed due to problems with component yields, but not long after, analysts were saying that the MacBook Pro with Retina Display is still on track to launch this year. Apple has managed to delay the ban of the iPhone and iPad in South Korea, and we learned that the company's new dock connector is nearly impossible to mod in a new teardown.

Nokia’s Elop: Lumia is “a step above” HTC’s Windows Phones

Nokia’s Elop: Lumia is “a step above” HTC’s Windows Phones

Nokia CEO Stephen Elop has dismissed concerns that the Lumia 920 will suffer from not being Microsoft's "signature" Windows Phone, with HTC instead taking that crown, arguing that the perceived advantage is "ambiguous." Asked whether Nokia felt slighted or sidelined at HTC inking a deal with Microsoft to put the Windows Phone 8X and 8S at the core of its new advertising campaign, Elop insisted that there's more to Lumia than just Windows Phone itself.

Nokia slaps HTC with Windows Phone 8 innovation snub

Nokia has lashed out at HTC over the 8X and 8S, dismissing the new "signature" Windows Phone 8 handsets as rebrands that are lacking in innovation. "Instead of changing a product name, we're changing the game with benefits like PureView, nav & wireless charging" Nokia executive vice president of sales and marketing Chris Weber tweeted shortly after HTC revealed its new line-up. "It takes more than matching color to match the innovation of the Lumia 920."
