Ticonderoga: Aluminum iPhone 5 is happening, launch to ‘shatter’ sales records

Despite rumors, leaks and punditry that now suggest a worst case scenario — no iPhone 5, just an iPhone 4S and an entry-level iPhone 4 — Apple will indeed unveil the mythical aluminum unibody iPhone 5 on Tuesday that will “shatter” Apple’s previous smartphone sales records. In a note to investors on Monday, Ticonderoga Securities analyst Brian White wrote that Apple has a blockbuster in store for consumers this fall, with unprecedented demand that will result in Apple’s biggest launch ever.

T-Mobile’s HTC Sensation 4G may land on June 8th

According to a purported internal screenshot obtained by TmoNews, T-Mobile may launch the HTC Sensation 4G on June 8th. We fell in love with the Sensation 4G in early April during our hands-on. It has a rock-solid aluminum uni-body design, is powered by a dual-core 1.2GHz Qualcomm Snapdragon processor, has a 4.3-inch 960 x 520 qHD display, 4GB of internal storage, an 8-megapixel camera capable of recording 1080p HD video, and runs Android Gingerbread with HTC’s latest and greatest Sense user interface. Pricing for the phone hasn’t been officially announced, but earlier rumors have suggested it will cost $200 with a new T-Mobile contract. More →

Apple unveils new MacBook Air models

Apple unveils new MacBook Air models


It shouldn’t come as much of a surprise, but Apple today announced a long-awaited refresh of its MacBook Air notebook line. Apple’s airy laptops haven’t been its most popular series by any means, but there is no question that the company’s remarkably thin notebooks struck a chord among jet-setters and young urbanites with expendable income. The sleek, lightweight machines were perfect for travel and even better for being seen in a local Starbucks. As time moved on however, the meager specs began showing their age and even a price drop couldn’t keep MacBook Air sales inflated.

Today, Apple looks to rekindle the public’s interest in its slender MacBook Air line with a reworked case, beefed up specs and a new smaller option.

Long story short, thin is in.

apple-macbook-refresh

That MacBook leak was the real deal, folks. Today, right on cue, Apple announced it had refreshed its popular, low-end MacBook unit. Now offering a 2.4GHz Intel Core 2 Duo processor, 2GB RAM, NVIDIA GeForce 320M graphics card and non-user replaceable battery rated for 10 hours of battery life (up from a previous 7), the new $999 MacBook is perfect for hipsters on a dime. Of course $200 more will bump you into MacBook Pro line, but we know you’re style conscious and fully aware that only the white polycarbonate frame of the MacBook matches your painfully ironic K-Swiss kicks.
