Lenovo exec confirms that Windows RT tablets are going to be cheap

Evidence has been emerged that Windows RT tablets are going to be pried on the cheaper side. The latest report, from Lenovo North American head David Schmoock, claims that Windows RT tablets will sell around for $200 – $300 less than tablets running the full version of Windows 8.

Schmoock pegs full Windows 8 tablets at $600 – $700, putting the stripped-down Windows RT devices around $300 on the low end. This is higher than what was predicted Tuesday in a report claiming that the Microsoft Surface will sell starting at $199 when it launches in October.

“RT will play in consumer and retail at very aggressive price points,” Schmoock told Bloomberg.
“It will do well but it’s going to be more of a consumer price point play to begin with.”
Windows RT will come on the ARM-based version of the Microsoft Surface, with a full version of Windows 8 running on the more expensive Microsoft Surface Pro (with its x86 chip).

Leaked Samsung Galaxy Note 2 factory photo confirms larger screen

The image shown above shows the Samsung Galaxy Note 2 will have a bigger display than its previous version. The photo above reportedly comes from a disassembled factory unit, leaked by an individual.

The original Samsung Galaxy Note has been dubbed a “phablet” and a smartphone-table hybrid due to a huge 5.3-inch screen. The new Galaxy Note 2 screen will be a larger 5.5 inch screen. With a bigger screen the Galaxy Note 2 will be sort of a miniature tablet, despite it being a smartphone in all but size.

With a large 5.5-inch display which means it is the largest smartphone ever released. The Galaxy Note 2 might not fit in your pocket, but comes with all the advantages of a tablet’s larger screen. The extra space will mean that Samsung will include impressive components such as an overclocked 1.6 GHz Quad-Core Exynos (Found in some versions of the S3). The Galaxy Note 2 could also have a 12 or 13-megapixel camera, if the rumours are to be believed.

Stay tuned for more updates, release dates etc.

Apple’s new iPhone dock connector image’s

Could this be Apple’s new iPhone connector? Except for the fact that French site Nowhereelse has a terribly poor reputation, I don’t see why not.

These parts seem to be real and not photo-shopped.

They seem to have eight contacts on each side, which will be enough for everything you need—video, audio, control, power and Apple’s secret magic unicorn protocol.

Nowhereelse has been publishing photos of various iPhone 5 parts. [Nowhereelse]
