Shane McGlaun | Mobile Devices | Tue, Sep 7 2010 10:02 AM CDT

LG is not one of the larger players in the smartphone market that is dominated by Apple and Android handsets. LG is looking to change that though not so much with a fancy new Os as it is looking to get users with raw power. LG has announced that it has new smartphones with NVIDIA Tegra 2 inside coming this year.

Network sharing for Orange and T-Mobile UK customers coming October 5th

Don Lynn | Mobile Devices | Mon, Sep 6 2010 11:45 PM CDT

The Orange and T-Mobile merger originally went down back in May in the U.K., and now customers of both companies are going to start reaping the benefits on October 5th. This is the target date that Everything Everywhere, the name of the joint venture, will allow customers of both Orange and T-Mobile to roam freely on either network.

The plan will allow customers to access whichever signal is stronger in their current area for enhanced call strength. Plans are also in place for mid-call automatic network switching and "enhanced data and internet coverage," but these features aren't planned to release until next year. 30 million customers will be affected by these changes by Everything Everywhere, so a big chunk of the U.K. will be happy with this move.

iPhone 4 turned into a microscope with a ten dollar mod

Don Lynn | Mobile Devices | Mon, Sep 6 2010 9:39 PM CDT

Got ten bucks, an iPhone 4, and a hankering to see things up close and personal? Take a look at this mod done by an iPhone 4 owner with a case and a cheap 45x microscope. He advertises it as a five dollar mod, but the microscope and case together will run you closer to a ten spot.

He wasn't impressed with the advertised magnification of the lens, but this is a pretty fun little mod for up close and personal shots of small items, or just for showing off in science class. My only fear is there may need to be a new type of geek invented for someone carrying something like this, but sign me up for the label because this is pretty cool.

Apple's Ipod Touch photos seen with phone app

Don Lynn | Mobile Devices | Mon, Sep 6 2010 9:04 PM CDT

The iPod Touch has been coming closer and closer to being "an iPhone that doesn't make calls." Apparently, even the marketing folks at Apple even get them confused; check out the iPod Touch photos released by Apple that are complete with a phone app.

The photos have now been taken down by Apple, so this was a fairly obvious Photoshop failure on someone's part. This probably won't stop the rumormongers from speculating whether the iPod Touch will be capable of making phone calls at some point. Next on the list: someone getting an iPod Touch with iPhone guts. Who knows?

Nuu Mini Key turns iPhone 4 into keyboard packing clamshell device

Shane McGlaun | Mobile Devices | Mon, Sep 6 2010 2:04 PM CDT

One of the things that people who like the idea of the iPhone, but don't buy cite as a reason is that the iPhone lacks a QWERTY keyboard. The lacking physical keyboard iPhone users have only a virtual onscreen keyboard to use. That onscreen keyboard is very good, but if you are the type that wishes you had a physical keyboard a company called Nuu is coming to your rescue.

Nuu was showing off a new case for the iPhone 4 at IFA last week called the Mini Key. The case prevents the antenna issue with the iPhone 4 and protects the phone from drops at the same time. The big feature though is the QWERTY keyboard on the bottom section of the case.

If you have been following the ExoPC Slate over the last several months, waiting for the day you could order the thing for yourself, that day has come. The ExoPC Slate is now up for pre-order for those who are registered for the site forums. The pre-order offering comes with good news and bad news that may temper your enthusiasm for the Slate.

The bad news is that the maker of the Slate has had trouble getting GPS to work on the device and therefore at this point it is unknown whether the 64GB version up for pre-sale will have GPS when it finally ships. The expectation is that GPS will not be supported at launch. The good news is that in light of the question about GPS, the company has cut the pre-order price a bit.

Aussie court upholds ban on PSJailbreak dongle

Shane McGlaun | Gaming | Mon, Sep 6 2010 12:02 PM CDT

Back in August, I reported that a new and easy way to hack your PS3 to play games and home brew software directly from the HDD had been released. The hack was software on a flash drive called PSJailbreak that you only had to plug into a USB port on the console. Sony took issue with the jailbreak and took the company behind the hack to court in Australia.

The judge in the case issued a temporary injunction against selling the PSJailbreak hack in Australia on August 27. The judge has now come back and made that injunction permanent baring the sale of the PSJailbreak dongle in Australia.
