Comparison of 4.7″ and 5.5″ iPhone 6 Cases

As the expected release date of Apple’s latest smartphone, the iPhone 6 approaches, leaked photos and products continue to surface that feature a new form-factor in 4.7″ and 5.5″ sizes.

Thanks to multiple OEM manufacturers, TechZany was able to get access to various cases and parts for the 4.7″ and 5.5″ iPhone 6. Although we haven’t yet seen the official housing or back casing of the iPhone 6, these cases and parts come from a very credible source in China. They’re modelled from the iPhone 6 “dummy phone” which is used in the factories for iPhone 6 prototyping. These parts and new form factors have also been confirmed within the supply chain.

It is expected that the 4.7″ iPhone 6 will be available in September, following the annual hardware update schedule. However, the 5.5″ iPhone 6 will not be available until later in the year, or early-2015 due to manufacturer issues with hardware design, according to multiple sources.

The hardware mockups, dummy models, and cases that have emerged seem to follow a consistent design on the 4.7″ model. As for the 5.5″ “iPhone 6S” or “iPhone Note” (As it’s being called by some Chinese manufacturers), there is the possibility that Apple will reveal this later in the year, rather than at the annual Worldwide Developers Conference on June 2nd 2014. It may also have some unique features or technology that isn’t currently being tested nor available in the supply chain and therefore, would not be demonstrated in these preliminary case designs.

Blackberry PlayBook Review

The Blackberry PlayBook went on sale in Canada for $300 off. I decided it was time to try out a tablet that wasn’t from the company who makes the leading tablet, Apple.

In the past, I had the iPad 2 so my standards are already quite high for a tablet. The Blackberry Playbook, although I had some problems at the beginning, is quite impressive.

Just because a tablet or even computer has better specifications then another doesn’t mean it is better or more useful. Many tablets exist with much betters specs then the BlackBerry PlayBook. I don’t want to base this review on a comparison of the Playbook and the iPad 2 but just for your information, here is how the Playbook specs compare.

The BlackBerry PlayBook is positioned as a consumer device that offers the features necessary to appeal to RIM’s enterprise/business customers.

First boot setup

It took me about 2 hours to setup the PlayBook as an update I did bricked the device. This is quite unusual and doesn’t happen with many people. I think I’ll save this for another blog post.

Note: after I fixed up the software update, everything began running smoothly. Don’t let this stop you from purchasing a PlayBook.
