iPhone 8 delayed because of the fingerprint scanner?

If things go south, and they may, we will not be seeing iPhone 8 until October or November 2017. Why? Problematic fingerprint scanner. According to the research memo obtained by AppleInsider, Apple wants to put 8’s scanner under the phone’s screen instead of its back, but still has not cracked just the right way of doing so. Methods the company is considering are:– to thin the glass over the sensor,– integrate a sensor into the display using infrared technology,– make a pinhole in the glass.We do not know which method will be chosen, but Apple is, reportedly, ...

Is this the end of Microsoft phones? Half of models disappear from the Microsoft Store

It is no newsflash that Microsoft-OS phones do not sell well. Operating system that became a nearly unquestionable leader on laptops and PCs simply lost against the competitors like Android and iOS. Microsoft must’ve done the math, figured that continuing to sell Windows OS phomes is pointless and started taking them off their store. Win HD LTE, Liquid M330, Blu Win Jr LTE, 640XL, 650, 950 as well as Liquid Jade Primo have already been removed. So… good? Bad? Let me know what you think. Would you rather see Microsoft phones still available or are you glad they will possbly ...

O tempora o mores!, or we might not see iPhone 8 this year

Hold on, don’t go jumping off the window. It is just a rumour, one that may or may not be true. Still… Deutsche Bank (what do they know about phones? Or am I missing something)’s analysts seem to think that iPhone 8 will not get released this year.
