Recent Tech Rumors for July 2012

Here is a collection of tech rumors I have run across in my surfing.  After reading the story about the iPhone 5 I decided to Google around a bit and see what other rumors were heating up the Internet. Just click on the first word in each sentence to read the source story that I used.

CNet reports the iPhone 5 will be released in August. has a photograph of a rumored new PS3 model.

NYT has a story backing up the rumor of a 7" iPad.

LA Times has a story about an Amazon smartphone.

PCMag talks about a Retina Display iMac that is coming this fall.

Amog has a story about a rumored iPad Mini that is a bit different from the other rumors about a little iPad so I've added it as well.

ZDNet covers the rumor that HTC is getting ready to do a layoff.

ARN has an interesting opinion piece on why an Amazon smartphone would be a tough sell. Not a rumor but it's related.

TheDroidGuy says to expect ZTE to announce an advanced gaming smartphone.

Please let me know if I missed any good tech rumors and I will be happy to append this list.

thanks for the good news on the iphone 5, hopefully its true, my plan already ended a few months ago but i didn't want to the iphone 4s. I hope it really comes out next month, I was willing to wait til October from the previous rumors.

Hi, Lily! I've not written one in about a month. I'm doing so much teaching this summer and taking classes for a doctorate that I don't have the time anymore. I am hoping that my schedule settles down a bit by the end of August and I can write more Pages. I had a little extra time last night and decided to do this one which was enjoyable :)

Da man is BACK.

Nice page prof. I want an iPhone...but I have an iPod Touch WiFi and really dont use it to its potential, so I'll prolly stick with dumb phones and save on the data package.

I agree tha Amazon phone would be a tough sale. Didn't work out well for Windows.

Thank you for the all of the kind words and I obviously won't really retired but I am very busy with teaching and taking classes until about the 3rd week of August. Hoping to write a Page or two before then. Again, thanks!
