In an interview with The Seattle Times, Ballmer describes the "sweet spot" for Surface as between "$300 to about $700 or $800". Tap that into a currency converter and you've got somewhere between £185 and £493, before you slap VAT on top. That's not a million miles from what we heard previously about the tablet matching the Nexus 7's $199 (£160) price tag. Acer is certainly hoping Microsoft doesn't come in with a low price. Its chairman JT Wang previously told The Financial Times he'd warned the company about launching the device in the first place. "It will create a huge negative impact for the ecosystem and other brands may take a negative reaction," he said.
Still, moving more into hardware is a big shift for Microsoft, It surprised everyone with its Surface tablet, and has annoyed quite a few of its partners by halloween horrors iphone case effectively becoming a competitor, Worse, it did so after having a gander at what they had to offer, Sneaky, All will become clear on 26 October, when Windows 8 launches, and the Surface goes on sale, How much would you pay for the Surface? Let me know in the comments or on Facebook, Steve Ballmer has hinted at a price for the Surface tablet in an interview and pointed to the future of Microsoft..
We all know it's an A6 chip powering Apple's latest mobile. But now AnandTech has gone into detail on the chip, giving us all the info we could want, and more. First up, there's 1GB of RAM powering the device. Apple hasn't said this in its promotional bumpf, but Samsung revealed it in one of its sniping ads comparing it with its own Galaxy S3. The A6 chip is actually comprised of "two 512MB dies in a dual-channel LPDDR2 package with 32 bits per channel", according to the site. And memory? It's got 8,528MB/sec, which is a 33 per cent improvement on the 6,400MB/sec in the iPhone 4S. Though it still falls short of the 12,800MB/sec found in the iPad.
The A6 also seems to be the first chip truly made by Apple, seeing as the Cupertino company is using maths units too new to be found in an ARM Cortex-A9 architecture, This would signal a departure from the A5 or A5X, This would give Apple more scope to optimise performance to fit its hardware, rather than just buying in pre-made chips, We'll have to wait for a full review to halloween horrors iphone case see how this impacts on the device's performance, All well and good, But let's not forget Apple's charging £25 to make your new iPhone compatible with your current dock, which is a slap in the face if you ask me..
Have you pre-ordered your iPhone 5? Will you be heading to the shop on Friday morning? Or could you not care less? Let me know in the comments below or on our Facebook page. Image credit: 9to5Mac. The iPhone 5's A6 processor has been detailed, revealing more of the new phone's tech specs. Apple stays notoriously tight-lipped when it comes to the exact specs of its new devices. Sure, it'll tout its 'retina display' or some similarly Apple-named feature, but it's always a little short on details. Head to the specs page for the iPhone 5, and you'll see what I mean. It doesn't even mention the processor.
