Apple planning September 12 iPhone 5, iPad mini, new iPod event: rumour

A new report claims that Apple will launch at least three new iOS products at a September special event

Apple is planning to unveil its next iPhone at a special event on September 12, alongside the iPad mini and new iPod nano.

That's according to iMore, which claims that "sources who have proven accurate in the past," have said that the iPhone 5 will be available to buy on September 21, but the widely speculated 7.85in iPad's release date has not been specified, and the new iPod touch was not mentioned.

The report follows the earlier discovery of alleged iPhone 5 photographs, showing a device fully assembled from parts leaked from Chinese factories.

It is expected that Apple's sixth-generation iPhone will be taller, with a larger display, smaller dock connector, and a two-tone metal back.

STYLISTIC Q702

First impression on unpacking the Q702 test unit was the solid feel and clean, minimalist styling.

For work use, Microsoft Word and Excel programs pre-installed on the device are adequate for preparing short documents.

LIFEBOOK UH574

The Fujitsu LifeBook UH574 allowed for great mobility without being obnoxiously heavy or clunky. Its twelve hours of battery life did not disappoint.

STYLISTIC Q702

The screen was particularly good. It is bright and visible from most angles, however heat is an issue, particularly around the Windows button on the front, and on the back where the battery housing is located.

STYLISTIC Q702

My first impression after unboxing the Q702 is that it is a nice looking unit. Styling is somewhat minimalist but very effective. The tablet part, once detached, has a nice weight, and no buttons or switches are located in awkward or intrusive positions.
