Renowned analyst claims Apple iWatch and 8GB iPhone 5S to debut at WWDC 2014

KGI securities analyst, Ming-Chi Kuo, is known for accurately spilling the beans on yet to be announced Apple products. Now, the analyst is saying that Apple will lift the lid on the rumoured iWatch and 8GB iPhone 5S at WWDC 2014 next week.

Why is Apple planning to launch an 8GB version of the iPhone 5S? It seems that Apple is finding it hard to compete against cheaper Android and Windows Phone handsets such as the Motorola Moto E and Nokia Lumia 520. To allow the iPhone to better compete with these budget offerings, the 8GB version of Apple’s current flagship is said to be coming. Sadly, Kuo doesn’t mention pricing.

There’s no way for us to find out if this rumour is true or not, but at least you won’t have to wait very long to find out since WWDC 2014 kicks off next week.

Can’t wait for Apple to lift the lid on the Apple iWatch and 8GB Apple iPhone 5S? Let us know through a comment on our Phones LTD Facebook page.

Typo requests judge to render Blackberry’s patent claims invalid

Typo, the physical QWERTY keyboard for the Apple iPhone 5 and the Apple iPhone 5S, is requesting in a court filing that the judge renders Blackberry’s patent claims invalid.52d58f047b9bfeb101000027_Home-Page-1

Reuters reports, “BlackBerry Ltd’s patent claims related to an attachable keyboard accessory for Apple Inc’s iPhones don’t comply with legal requirements for patentability, Typo Products LLC said in a court filing late on Tuesday.

“BlackBerry sued Typo last month, saying its physical keyboard that can be attached to some of Apple’s iPhone models infringes patents.

“The Canadian smartphone maker claimed that Typo’s keyboard infringes its design and alleged that the startup’s $99 keyboard featuring angled miniature keys is similar to those on many BlackBerry devices.

“In a request to a federal court in San Francisco, Typo asked a U.S. judge to rule that the patents have not been infringed and to declare some of the claims invalid and unenforceable.

“Typo said that one of the patents is not enforceable because the design was widely available for sale in 1988, prior to the BlackBerry patent approval, and this was not disclosed to the U.S. Patent and Trademark Office.

“Typo urged the judge to dismiss every claim in BlackBerry’s complaint with prejudice and not be subject to further action, the filing showed.

“Typo, founded by “American Idol” co-host Ryan Seacrest, also asked the court for a permanent injunction to prevent BlackBerry from suing or threatening to sue the company for patent infringement.”
