New iPhone5 mockup teases at iPhone Air

Posted By Ray Nicolini

iPhone 5 mockups are always a mixed bag. They’re certainly fun to look at and they help to quell our excitement until the actual device comes out. However, most of the time they instill us with a false hope by showing us insanely cool devices that will most likely never make it out of the designer’s imagination. Such is the case with the iPhone Air.
CiccareseDesign, an Italian website, has published designs for what they are calling the iPhone Air. This thing takes many design cues from the MacBook Air including an aluminum backing and tapered body.
One thing I’m not too keen on is the screen. It definitely seems larger than the current iPhone screen, but I think it looks silly with absolutely NO bezel… there’s gotta be something surrounding the screen. Take a look at the rest of the images below and let me know if you agree.

Other than that, though, this mockup is definitely one of the sleekest ones I’ve seen. I just wish we could get some actual evidence about the real iPhone 5!
What’s your opinion on these iPhone 5 mockups? Do you like to see them, or are you sick of gazing at devices never to make it to market? Let me know how you feel about this mockup and iPhone 5 mockups in general in the comments below or on twitter.

Image: Possible iPhone 5 case shows it to be thinner, wider and longer

Here’s another round of cases that are rumoured to be for the upcoming iPhone 5. Unconfirmed pictures of a silicone case and a hard case reveal that the next iPhone might shape out to be 5-inches tall and 2.8-inches wide (iPhone 4 is 4.5 inches and 2.31 inches), so most likely a bigger screen and overall thinner… just like all the previous reports stated. In addition, 9to5Mac states that there’s a slight “tear drop” in the case design, implying that the iPhone 5 might go “thick to thin from top to bottom”.
As for all the ports and buttons, the speakers and USB port are still at the bottom, while the case shows the ringer switch has moved away from the volume buttons to the right hand side. Basically everywhere else stays the same.  A bigger, thinner and wider Apple iPhone… surely Samsung will be comparing its design to the Galaxy S II. A few more pics are after the break:

Samsung Confirms White Galaxy S II is Coming… And It’s a Beauty

Posted By Ray Nicolini

If you’re a fan of Apple’s white iPhone 4, but you’re not keen on its iOS operating system, then feast your eyes on this beauty. Samsung has just announced that its Galaxy S II is coming to the U.K. on September 1… in white!

Samsung Galaxy S II white
Internally, the white device is identical to the existing black Galaxy S II — boasting the same 4.3-inch Super AMOLED Plus display, a dual-core 1.2GHz processor, 1GB of RAM, plus an 8-megapixel camera at the back and a 2-megapixel camera at the front.
The device has been so successful since its launch in the U.K. that in just 85 days, Samsung had already shifted a whopping 5 million units — that’s before the Galaxy S II has stepped foot in the U.S. — a new record for the company
If you’re looking at that photo above and you think you’re having a spell of déjà vu, that’s because you may have seen it yesterday. U.K. retailer MobileFun listed the device on its website with a slightly premature August 15 launch date. The price advertised was £410 (approx. $667) for the unlocked, SIM-free model. However, Samsung has confirmed to SlashGear that the device will be available through a number of carriers with subsidized pricing.
If you’re eager to get your hands on this device in the U.S., it’s expected to launch in August with Verizon the first carrier to offer the device, and it may be well worth the wait: One rumor suggests the device will come packing 4G LTE by the time it gets to Verizon. There’s no confirmation, however, that the U.S. will get both colors to begin with.
LTE is just one feature that may give the Galaxy S II an advantage over Apple’s iPhone 5 — which is expected to launch a month later in September. If the iPhone 5′s rumored specs list is anything to go by, it will compete with the Galaxy S II’s high-resolution screen, but it won’t match its processor or its RAM.
What do you think of Samsung’s white Galaxy S II? If I wasn’t already in love with the iPhone, I’d snap this up in a heartbeat.
