What to expect from the 'iPhone Fold'
I might be alone, but i think it makes more sense to make a foldable iPad and leave the iPhone form factor alone. Its simplicity, durability, one handed use would only suffer not to mention weight etc. In a bigger device there would be more space for a folding mechanism, wouldn’t require an outer display for one handed closed operation, calls…
My main problem is the durability of any plastic screen we’ve seen so far. Until it doesn’t come close to glass or they don’t implement their self healing display to negate the disadvantages i don’t see it happen in any shape or form. Even then it introduces more and new points of failure to any device whats famed for their longevity and durability.
Microsoft Windows team wants iMessage on Windows devicesMicrosoft knows they are left behind. The era of MSN messenger are over and even the purchase of Skype can't keep them where they want to be. Internet access moved from desktops to mobile and Microsoft had no relevant offering.
It won't happen. They just want to seem like the cool side for being willing to work together. While (in my opinion at least) iMessage on windows would just compromise its security and then we didn't even talk about different views of privacy, advertising... between the 2 company.
