Kobo (or rather their hardware partner Netronix) has taken the sensible precaution of placing most of the useful info under an embargo, but there were a few nuggets of information scattered across the filings. Continue reading
Apple Daily hasn’t revealed where they got the photos, but they say that we’re looking at components for what they say is going to be called the iPhone 6L, Apple’s soon to be flagship phablet. Continue reading
