The Justice Department will likely choose not to bring charges against Julian Assange for publishing the troves of classified documents leaked to him by Chelsea Manning, reports The Washington Post. Anonymous US officials tell the Post that the decision isn’t final, but that it’s looking unlikely that charges will be made unless Assange were implicated in some additional crime. “If you are not going to prosecute journalists for publishing classified information, which the department is not, then there is no way to prosecute Assange,” Matthew Miller, a former Justice Department spokesman, tells the Post.

It was only a few days ago that we got an early peek at what appears to be Huawei’s Ascend Mate 2. Now, according to our friends over at MyDrivers, it would appear the Chinese company also has a new Glory handset in the works — one which is said to be a planned competitor against the likes of Xiaomi’s Red Rice. Per the report, Huawei intends the Glory 4 to be a budget smartphone that packs a good amount of punch, with features such as MediaTek’s MT6592 chip (aka “the world’s first true octa-core”), 2GB RAM, 16GB of built-in storage and a 13-megapixel rear camera. The Huawei Glory 4, which could also be known as the Honor in some places, is expected to run Emotion UI 2.0 alongside Android 4.2 (Jelly Bean) when it becomes official. Unfortunately, there’s no word on the Glory 4′s screen size, though the recent leak does suggest it’ll be a 720p display onboard.
Way back in January this year, Alcatel trotted out some new tablets set for debut in Q3. Some we saw come to light in August. But, what’s this we have here? Perpetual thorn in every product release’s side — @evleaks — has just thrown up images of what are apparently new colorful 7-inch tabs from …
Americans may not have to wait long for a shot at the Xperia Z1, as frequent tipster @evleaks has posted what’s reportedly a press image of the smartphone’s T-Mobile USA variant. There’s little new to see beyond the carrier logo, although we doubt that many will object if Sony ships a largely …
Nokia appears to be pushing ahead with its Lumia 2520 Windows RT tablet despite Microsoft’s plan to acquire its devices business. A newly leaked photo from the Evleaks Twitter account shows Nokia’s tablet in a cyan color. At first glance it looks like a large-screen Lumia Windows Phone, but the Windows button in the center and volume buttons on the side show it’s clearly a tablet. The similarities explain Nokia’s reason to continue the Lumia brand even for its tablets.
Nokia is expected to announce the device at an event on October 22nd, alongside a 6-inch Windows Phone and four other devices. The Lumia 2520 Windows RT tablet is expected to include a 1080p display and be powered by quad-core Qualcomm processor. It is also expected to…
Typically, Samsung’s smartphones for Japan aren’t much more than slight modifications of its regular devices. The company may soon cater directly to local tastes, however: a leaked NTT DoCoMo brochure on 2ch.net has revealed the Galaxy J, which appears to be designed solely for the Land of the …
When HTC launched the HTC Mini+, everyone wondered when the company would release a phone large enough to justify buying a companion device. These images, from Android Central’s forums, makes the arrival of the 6-inch HTC One Max that much more of a foregone conclusion. The anonymous Verizon …
Somewhere out there, someone is probably waiting for a more affordable LG Optimus G Pro, and if the LG G Pro Lite Dual turns out to be real, then their wish might soon be granted. The phone will reportedly boast dual-SIM support and retain the size of its predecessor’s 5.5-inch display, but it’ll have a 960 x 540 pixel resolution instead of full HD. It’ll understandably be equipped with other lesser specs, including an unspecified 1GHz dual-core processor, 1GB of RAM, a 3,140mAh battery, an 8-megapixel rear camera and 8GB of internal storage that’s supplemented with a microSD card slot. According to the Russian website that first reported the leak, the Android 4.1.2 phone will be available in the Eurasian country in October for $ 400 unlocked, which just happens to be cheaper than the Galaxy Mega. Obviously, you’ll have to shell out for the more expensive Optimus G Pro if you want better specs, but at least this one comes with a stylus.
It’s not that much of a stretch of the imagination to believe that Apple might unveil gold, or “space grey,” iPads in the upcoming month(s). That’s why it’s quite interesting that Chinese tech site DoNews has posted photos of a champagne iPad mini 2, complete with TouchID sensor.
Not enough evidence? Sonny Dickson, the same fellow who released the most accurate pre-release photos of the iPhone 5s and iPhone 5c, has today tweeted out his own information regarding the inevitable iPad mini launch, as well as a photo of an unassembled iPad mini 2 in “space grey.”
From the unconfirmed photos, as well as Dickson’s predictions, it seems that there are quite a few similarities between the latest flagship iPhone and the forthcoming iPad mini. As you can see in the images above and below, the next-gen iPad minis will allegedly come in champagne gold and the same space grey we’ve seen with the iPhone 5s.
Dickson also tweeted, without revealing photos, that the iPad mini will be available in silver as well. Furthermore, we may see a TouchID fingerprint scanner on the Apple tablets, also shown in images.
No word yet on whether or not the iPad mini will sport a high-res Retina display.
As with any Apple leak, these images are far from confirmed, but Dickson has a solid track record and the details seem to make sense in terms of Apple’s evolution. After the iPhone 5 came out in the anodized aluminum black “slate”, so too did the iPad mini.
Dickson also mentioned that, according to his sources, the iPad mini 2 would include Apple’s new A7 64-bit chip, the M7 motion coprocessor we’re seeing in the iPhone 5s, along with 1GB of RAM. As for the 9.7-inch iPad 5, Dickson’s sources revealed that it will pack 2GB of RAM under the hood, presumably sporting the same specs as little brother.
Again, we haven’t even received an invitation to the iPad/iPad mini launch event (expected to go down sometime in October), so it’s far too early to tell the legitimacy of these claims and/or photos.
Still, these aren’t too far outside the realm of possibility.
A new Nokia Lumia Windows Phone is heading to Verizon before the end of the year. Twitter account Evleaks has posted a press photo of what is described as the Lumia 929 for Verizon. Sources familiar with Nokia’s plans have revealed to The Verge that the Lumia 929 will debut on Verizon before the end of the year. The leaked photo shows what appears to be a large-screen Windows Phone with a 1080p display. A white version of the same device leaked earlier this month, with a 20-megapixel camera and PureView branding.
We understand that the device is a variant of Nokia’s upcoming Lumia 1520. However, we’re told Nokia’s Lumia 929 won’t have the same giant 6-inch display, but it will be 1080p resolution. Little else is known about the…
