Rumor Roundup: The Next iPad mini? Galaxy Note III to be Even Bigger? More?

By , dealnews Media Editor

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:

  • iPhone 6 Will Have 2 LED Flashes?
    Now, after taking a flash photo in a bar, your subjects will be blinded by two spots in front of their eyes. "Ok, everyone! Smile and say, 'Gosh, that's bright!'" *Click* [InRumor]

  • Is Facebook Building an App to Compete with SnapChat?
    If their past handling of photo apps is any indication, this is nothing more than Facebook's attempt to offend and outrage the temporary-view picture chat community. [MobileMarketingWatch]

  • Apple Looking to Buy Snapguide?
    Apple is going to corner the do-it-yourself instruction manual market. Check MATE, Microsoft! [TechCrunch]

  • Samsung Galaxy Note III Will Have an Even Bigger Screen Than Its Predecessors?
    At 6", this goes beyond Phablet, past Tablone, and lands somewhere in the "Why are you talking into a small TV" zone. [DigitalTrends]

  • Next-Gen Apple iPad mini Ready to Enter Production?
    Is there any point in buying an Apple product and hoping to be the "Jones" that everyone wants to keep up with anymore? [BGR]

  • Polaroid to Release a "High Quality" Android Camera?
    As opposed to the bland pile of parts they released last year, I guess. If at first you don't succeed ... or at second you don't succeed, I guess ... then license your name to any company who asks, go bankrupt, be beloved by hipsters, THEN try, try again. [liliputing]
