According to a report, the rumoured Windows Phone 8-powered Nokia EOS will sport a whopping 41-megpaixel camera. The report also says the handset may sport a quad-core processor.
The report comes to us via The Nokia Blog. The site reports, “According to our source Nokia are currently working/testing on two different models of the EOS, which have the same specs but a different processor a: Dual Core version , and a Quad core running the latest Snapdragon 800; the main issue appears to be the poor battery performance of the quad core variant which might ultimately lead to releasing a dual core variant. This does ring true, seeing how the Lumia 720′s product managers themselves have told us that they tested out a 1ghz, and 512mb versions of the phone; so it doesn’t seem too far-fetched to hear of a Dual/Quad core version of the same phone being tests, especially with the latest rumor of GDR3 brinign Quad core support.”
Speaking about other rumoured specs, the site says, “The EOS is said to have a similar battery to that of the 920 (2000 mAh), alongside a similar screen resolution; with the exception of it being an Amoled screen; which is once again strengthened by the recent leak of the 928′s Amoled screen; and the low power sleeping screen support in future updates. In regards to actual camera performance the EOS should pack a similar camera sensor to its predecessor, with a 41MP sensor, Xenon & LED flash, OIS and possibly a Variable Aperture lens (like the N86) also mentioned is a more detailed camera UI similar to that of on the 808.”

Are you eagerly on the lookout for the successor of the iPad 2? If this is the case, you might not have to wait very long. According to a new report, the iPad 3 will be unveiled on the 7th of March.
The news comes to us courtesy of iMore, a website dedicated to reporting Apple news. Its “reliable” sources claim to have inside information on the release date of the most highly anticipated tablet of 2012.
This new rumor is in line with AllThingsD’s claims that the iPad 3 will be officially unveiled by the Cupertino firm within the first week of March, which will be released approximately a week after.
The website also reaffirms that the iPad 3 will sport a retina display just like the iPhone 4 and the iPhone 4S. It also adds that the tablet will pack an A6 quad-core chip and 4G connectivity in areas around the world where 4G internet speeds are offered (which means not in the UK).
If these reports are true, this would mean that the iPad 3 would be unveiled at around the same time the iPad 2 was unveiled last year.

It seems more rumors surrounding the Apple iPhone 5 are surfacing yet again. New reports suggest that the next generation iPhone will be much thinner compared to the iPhone 4 and its successor the iPhone 4S. Will it be as slim as the Motorola Razr? Unfortunately, no specifics were disclosed, but we’re hoping that it’ll be thinner or as thing compared to what the competition has to offer.
Furthermore, the iPhone 5 is said to pack a quad-core processor under the hood. Lastly, one unit is said to support both 3G and 4G networks, instead of two versions.
The report comes to us from Kathy Huberty, an analyst from Morgan Stanley, via BGR. According to BGR, “Huberty says Apple’s next-generation ‘iPhone 5′ will feature a new slimmer case. The iPhone 5 will also feature a new quad-mode chip from Qualcomm that could allow it to operate on all 3G and 4G LTE networks.”
Since this is a prediction, take this information with a pinch of salt. However, it does sound promising. An iPhone packing a quad-core processor, a slim profile, and support for both 3G and 4G networks will definitely make it more attractive to Apple enthusiasts. It might even cause other users to jump ship and convert to Apple.
