Apple may launch ‘iPad mini’ in early 2012 to fend off Kindle Fire

Apple may be working on a new entry-level tablet scheduled to launch early next year. In a note to investors on Wednesday, Ticonderoga Securities analyst Brian White recounted numerous meetings with technology supply chain companies at a trade show in China this week. White noted a general ominous environment, with the majority of the companies he met with commenting on weakening demand across the industry. “The whole world is shrinking,” one company representative told the analyst.

It also features deep integration with various Amazon services such as the Amazon Appstore and Amazon’s Cloud Player service. All of this has already been reported, however. Read on for more.

iPhone 5 image supposedly surfaces

An image of what could be Apple’s next-generation iPhone has surfaced online. 9to5 Mac published the photo, which it received from a tipster, and the site does not claim to be able to verify the authenticity of the image. According to the report, the site’s tipster saw a presumed Apple employee using the device in public when he snapped the above picture of the man and the device. While there’s no telling if the handset seen above is in fact Apple’s iPhone 5, it certainly doesn’t resemble any iOS device we’ve seen to date. There are some discrepancies with earlier leaks, however, that claimed to reveal case designs for the iPhone 5. The volume rocker, for example, is still on the left side of the device pictured above, but earlier case designs showed it on the right. On the other hand, Apple has undoubtedly finalized its hardware design at this point, so it’s entirely possible that the iPhone 5 is undergoing real-world testing. A test on a train is certainly necessary so Apple can see how the device performs when rapidly switching between cell towers, so that’s another good sign. Would an Apple employee be holding the device out in the open without something concealing the device and the Apple logo on the back? We’re not so sure.

HTC Prime and Ignite Windows Phones leaked by retailer

We haven’t seen the HTC Ignite or Prime since March, but a new leak from cell phone retailer The Phone House suggests that HTC is planning to launch both handsets in the near future. The phones will pack Microsoft’s Windows Phone operating system, presumably the Mango release, but it is unclear when they will hit the market. If we were betting men we would wager that both handsets will launch in the early fall, when Microsoft has said it will deploy Mango to existing handsets. Earlier this week, the Redmond-based company announced that it has already released the operating system update to manufacturers, so we’re expecting to see a number of new Windows Phone leaks to start cropping up.

iPad HD could launch in September alongside iPhone 5

According to Thisismynext, Apple is prepping to launch a brand new iPad in tandem with the iPhone 5 deployment this fall. The rumor mirrors a report from FBR Capital markets analyst Craig Berger, who said in a note to investors on Wednesday that Apple will release a higher-end version of the iPad 2 with a display that offers a higher pixel density. The device will reportedly be called the “iPad HD” and will sport a double resolution 2048 x 1536-pixel screen. Apple plans to market the iPad HD as the “pro” model in its tablet family, and like the MacBook Pro family, it might be marketed towards the videographer and photographer crowds, which need need more muscle out of their machines. Those professionals will be happy to hear the second part of the rumor, too: the iPad HD could launch with a new mobile version of Aperture or Final Cut.
