With speculations galore that Samsung will probably introduce a curved screen in its next Galaxy handset, the Galaxy S5, it is apparent that the move will give the bigwig South Korean device maker a leg up on the US tech giant Apple.
On Tuesday, RBC Capital Markets' Amit Daryanani said in a note to investors that Apple's hotly-anticipated deal with China Mobile will result in an estimated addition of $9 billion-$10 billion to the tech giant's annual revenue.
In a Monday post to its Online Apple Store, tech giant Apple listed the order deadline dates for December 24 delivery, as well as announced 'free shipping' on all orders during the holiday shopping season this year.
Competition in the 64-bit mobile chip arena is set to intensify in the near future, with US tech giant Apple having launched the first such chip - the 64-bit A7 chip - on its latest iOS devices including the high-end iPhone 5s, the new full-size iPad Air, and the iPad Mini with Retina display.
In a move which marks Apple's ongoing efforts to expand the availability of the new smaller iPad Mini tablet - the iPad Mini with Retina Display - in the US, the company is reportedly spreading out its unusually "clandestine" sales rollout for the device.
US tech giant Apple witnessed a 0.3 percent fall in its shares, to $519.80, on Friday as the company commenced the gradual roll out of its second-generation smaller iPad Mini tablet - the new iPad Mini with Retina Display - to retail stores.
