iPhone 5 Rumors Resurface

The Apple iPhone 5 was the much-hyped non-launch product of last year and this year consumers are hoping that Apple actually releases something worthy of waiting for.  Let's face it, the iPhone 4S was not that exciting and if the rumors are to be true, the iPhone 5 will land in June with a 4.6" Retina display.  While the jury is still out on LTE support, my guess is with the size and form factor of the phone, it will ship with more power-friendly 4G standard.  eWeek has more info.

While the iPhone 5 would actually be the sixth-generation version of the handset, a blog post on AppleInsider claimed the Chinese workers who build the phones refer to the upcoming handset as the iPhone 5. According to Apple-centric blog 9to5Mac's Jan. 25 report, the iPhone 5 will feature a bigger screen and a different casing from the iPhone 4.

HTC is had a rough Q1

It wasn't too long ago when HTC was one of the biggest names when it came to smartphones, now they are having a pretty rough go of it. According to HTC's Q1 results they say a 70% drop in profits and their revenues dropped 35%. It will be interesting to see if HTC can rebound now that there is more competition than ever in the smartphone market. TechCrunch has the full story.

HTC released their unaudited Q1 2012 earnings earlier this morning, and the results aren’t pretty [PDF]. The Taiwanese company managed to pull down NT$67.8 billion ($2.3 billion) this past quarter, a nearly 35% dip year-over-year.

What’s more, HTC took an even bigger hit when it came to net income after taxes — in Q1, they only raked in NT$4.4 billion ($149 million), compared to the NT$14.8 billion ($501 million) in profits earned this time last year.

Arctic Blu-Ray Media PC

Arctic has certainly diversified over the past couple of years and eTeknix has one of their non-coolers.  They look at the Arctic MC0001-BD Blu-Ray Entertainment Center in their latest review and find out if this Dual-Core Atom D525 running Radeon HD5430 has enough power to fulfill your entertainment needs.  It's a pretty slick little beast that comes pre-installed with Windows 7 Home Premium to boot!

Unlike other devices on the market, this is not just an entertainment or media centre but is a fully fledged desktop PC with Windows 7 Home Premium bundled on it, so that you can do work, surf the web or use it as its main purpose, being a media/entertainment centre.
