Rumor Roundup: No More Android OS? Early iPhone 7?


When the Internet runs out of news, it starts making things up. We think this is funny, so we round up all the lies and speculation and put them here. We call it the "Rumor Roundup" and we do it all for you! This week:

Surface Phone Concept
  • Will Microsoft's Surface Phone Be Aimed at Enterprise Consumers?
    So it won't be released until 2245? Their first customer will probably be Spock. Or Kirk? No, Kirk likes antiques, so he'll use a Microsoft Kin. [Technology News Extra]

  • Will Samsung Stop Making Digital Cameras?
    My parents will be devastated! (They're the only people who are still buying stand-alone digital cameras, instead of just using their phone's camera, right?)
    (Ed. Note: There are still a lot of reasons to use a dedicated camera.) [Ubergizmo]

Samsung Galaxy S6
  • Will the Samsung Galaxy S7 Cost Less Than Last Year's Galaxy S6?
    Technically... but what if you adjust for inflation?! [BGR]

  • Will the iPhone 7 Launch Early?
    Technically... but what if you adjust for inflation? (Calendar inflation. The reason why years go by slower, as you age, because they actually get longer. These are facts, people.) [Apple Insider]

Android Marshmallow Guy
  • Is Google Trying to Merge Its Android and Chrome OSes?
    Their awful choice was between having two horribly fragmented OSes or one, one-size-fits-none OS... that is still fragmented. I personally think they chose poorly, because with a unified OS, that's half as many Google OS rumors I can include in this weekly column. And let me tell you, sometimes it's a real struggle to find six really juicy ones. [Maximum PC]

  • Will the BlackBerry Priv for Verizon Arrive In Early 2016?
    See what I was saying about it being difficult to find six really good rumors, sometimes? [iDigital Times]
