The folks at NZXT have since booted the hackers, cleaned up the site and have assured us that NZXT is still going strong and plan to continue business as usual.

With all of the noise going on between the iPhone 4 and Android out there, RIM has been fairly quiet on the Blackberry front. Don't think they've been sitting on their heels; with their first touchscreen phone and a possible tablet in the works, RIM also has a major upgrade coming: the Blackberry 6.0 OS.

Think your EVO 4G is a beautiful phone? Andrew Kim at DesignFabulous has a concept phone he calls the HTC 1 that would put it to shame. With a machined brass casing, built in kickstand for watching shows or even using it as an alarm clock, and dual speakers this phone is definitely a beautiful idea. The HTC 1 even includes a built in UV light to kill microorganisms it may have picked up from your head or your pocket for all the clean freaks out there.
