Best Buy is rumored to launch their own Android tablet named “Insignia Flex”. According to Reuters, Best Buy is looking to compete with Apple’s iPad and Amazon’s Kindle Fire HD.
Some of the rumored features of the “Insignia Flex” are a dual-core 1 GHz processor, 9.7-inch display with ten-hours of battery life.
The tablet is said to arrive in Best Buy stores on November 11th with a price between $239 and $259. This price range is slightly above the Kindle Fire HD and well below Apple’s iPad 3.
I am not sure how a Best Buy branded tablet will do. I just don’t see them being able to provide the required support or updates needed.
Samsung has a media event on October 11, and there has been a large amount of speculation on a music device being launched. Today via an Australian site by the name of Telecom-Presse we get details and specs.
We now know of two possible devices, the GT-S6010 Galaxy Music and the Music DUOS Galaxy GT-S6012. The smartphones are listed as having stereo speakers and an FM tuner.
They are listed as having an A9 processor running 850MHz with 512MB of RAM. This falls into a lower line of specs but still more than enough to deliver a good music environment. The screen is reported to be 3″ and running Android 4.0. We know for a fact this device is already on Samsung’s Jelly Bean update list so there should be no worry there.
The devices come with 4GB of internal memory and are expandable by microSD to provide an additional 32GB.
This device seems very focused on delivering music, which was Samsung’s intention and operating as a phone. The small screen and lack of processing power will make this smartphone a no go for anyone looking for more flexibility and the ability to game.

None of the important information has been leaked like a release date or price, but I’m sure that information will surface before you know it.
The Apple iPad Mini isn’t rumored to arrive until sometime in October, but Bolopad a Chinese tech site has posted some pictures of a mockup that is said to be Apple’s iPad Mini.
The tablet in the images have Apple’s logo, a place for a camera and even the new Lightning connector port that is on Apple’s iPhone 5.
The iPad Mini has a 7.85-inch display and will be running iOS 6, but no other specifications have been released. We know Apple usually doesn’t leak details, pictures, etc., but most of the leaked information that was released before Apple announced the iPhone 5 was on target. Should be interesting to see how well this mockup holds against the real deal come October.
Some of Apple’s iPhone 5 smartphones barely hit the states yesterday and today images of what the packaging will look like has leaked via Redmond Pie. The new iPhone 5 scheduled to arrive at your door will be a black box with an image of the iPhone 5 slightly tilted.

The design patent for Nokia’s latest and greatest Windows phone 8 device, code-named the Phi, has finally been released. The design drawings are brought to us by Liveside who did some digging and uncovered a new patent filing that looks to be the newest Nokia Windows 8 Phone submitting in drawings.
At first glance the design looks almost identical to the Lumia 800 and 900, but upon further inspection of the design the design matches previously leaked pictures of the Phi. One rumor that surrounded this device was that it had a curved screen which seems to have been proved wrong by this design drawing. No curved screen for the Phi.
The back of the “Phi” will be curved however, most likely to accommadate larger battery needed to power the large 4.7 inch display. Along with the larger battery, the Phi comes equipped with two speakers rather than just one previously seen on the Lumina series.
The buttons orientation on the Phi appears to be the same as the Lumina series only the buttons on the Phi have been spaced to take full advantage of the 4.7 inch display. The design features a micro USB on the bottom of the phone with a 3.5 mm headphone jack directly above it on the top of the phone accompanied by a dual microSIM/microSD card tray.
The Nokia Phi is being released on AT&T and is supposedly featuring these specifications:
- 4.65 inch AMOLED display and ClearBlack 1280×720
- 4G LTE
- microSD, NFC
- Qualcomm Dual-core CPU, 1.5GHz
- polycarbonate, unibody design
