iPhone 5 USB cable further suggests mini docking connector

Leaked image shows iPhone 5 USB cable with new port

Apple's upcoming iPhone 5 USB cable has been leaked online confirming the smartphone will use a smaller docking connector.

The image, flagged up to iLounge by Veister, shows a USB cable for the next generation iPhone. It is the traditional white colour with a full size USB port on one end and the male part of Apple's new mini docking connector on the other.

iLounge said: "Veister is a Shenzhen, China-based accessory vendor, but the cable has yet to appear on the company's site. It is unclear whether the part shown is a replacement cable or a genuine Apple part with pre-production markings."

The image is further evidence to suggest Apple will ditch its traditional 30-pin dock connector for a smaller one - supposedly using just eight pins.

The rumour mill suggests the iPhone 5 will be announced on 12 September along with an iPad Mini. If this is the case then we don't have long to wait to find out what Apple has up its sleeve.

STYLISTIC Q702

First impression on unpacking the Q702 test unit was the solid feel and clean, minimalist styling.

For work use, Microsoft Word and Excel programs pre-installed on the device are adequate for preparing short documents.

LIFEBOOK UH574

The Fujitsu LifeBook UH574 allowed for great mobility without being obnoxiously heavy or clunky. Its twelve hours of battery life did not disappoint.

STYLISTIC Q702

The screen was particularly good. It is bright and visible from most angles, however heat is an issue, particularly around the Windows button on the front, and on the back where the battery housing is located.

STYLISTIC Q702

My first impression after unboxing the Q702 is that it is a nice looking unit. Styling is somewhat minimalist but very effective. The tablet part, once detached, has a nice weight, and no buttons or switches are located in awkward or intrusive positions.
