Xiaomi MI-2: Cheap, Chinese, Quad-core

iPhone 5 Gets New 19-pin Connector

Xiaomi MI-2: Cheap, Chinese, Quad-core

Chinese engineers are readying an inexpensive Xiaomi MI-2 smartphone that is called to tread in the steps of the older MI-1 while boasting a quad-core CPU.

So far, the information about Xiaomi MI-2 has been scarce. Aside from the quad-core CPU, the device is reported to feature a 1280x720 display and 1GB RAM. One noticeable peculiarity is the two-color body color theme.

Xiaomi MI-2, like its predecessor, will be produced by Foxconn. The official debut is slated for the next month, and the guiding price is $313.

iPhone 5 Gets New 19-pin Connector

A few days ago, it became known that Apple had patended a 19-pin connector. This, along with a confirmation from Reuters yesterday, vefiried earlier rumors about iPhone 5 getting a new plug. Reuters's source explained that Apple wanted to free up more space for an earphone jack on the bottom side of the phone.

As you understand, this change will make it impossible to use new iPhones with millions of existing devices compatible with the current plug that has been used since 2003. Obviously, this will create demand for an adapter and Apple will only be happy to oblige.

Just to remind you, iPhone 5 is already in volume production, and sales are expected to start in October 2012.
