Rumor Roundup: iPhone 5 Pictures? Non-3D Nintendo 3DS?

By Jeff Somogyi, dealnews Media Editor

Here are some of this week's best rumors:

  • Are these the leaked photos of the iPhone 4S and the iPhone 5? says the photos reveal that the new iPhones won't have a home button, which may be inconvenient for the user who just wants to get to the homescreen quickly. (We bet it irks Steve Jobs that he was only able to remove 20% of the existing iPhone's buttons.)
  • Samsung to acquire HP's PC division?
    According to the Overclockers Club, HP is going to hand over its PC division to Samsung for piles of cash. With HP's recent discontinuations of webOS and its Touchpad line of tablets, it looks like HP is returning to its core competency: Overcharging for printer cartridges.
  • New redesigned Nintendo 3DS on the way?
    The Escapist reports that, after the flop of the 3DS, Nintendo's next handheld device will feature new buttons and play up the "fun" of gameplay. It will still have 3D capabilities, but those will be downplayed. Like, "Forget we ever said anything about 3D being the future ... unless you liked it, then this new version has it too!"
  • Apple working on a $30 a month TV subscription plan?
    The difference between this and other, similarly-priced cable subscriptions? This is being offered by Apple. Added benefit? For only $30 more a month, your AppleTV will now have a useful purpose in your entertainment center. [All Things D]
