First the Motorola Xoom, second the T-Mobile G-Slate with LG. 1 GHz dual-core Tegra 2 processor, 8.9-inch display, 32GB of internal storage, gyroscope and accelerometer, stereoscopic rear-facing video cameras capable of full 1080p 3D capture, one of which is a 5 megapixel still camera with LED flash, a third 2 megapixel camera up front for video chat, and glasses required for viewing said 3D content. T-Mobile’s HSPA+ network or WiFi are your choices on the G-Slate for getting connected. You can also port 1080p video over HDMI to any external display that supports 1080p. The G-Slate will launch sometimes in March. Presser after the jump!

Surprisingly, for a high-end 4G Android handset like the Inspire 4G, AT&T is pricing things pretty low. Keep in mind the inspire 4G uses a 4.3-inch Super LCD display, 1GHz processor, an 8-megapixel camera with 720p HD video recording, Android 2.2 and HTC’s Sense UI 2.0 (and the online suite of Sense services), HSPA+ “4G” data speeds, 4GB internal memory and 8GB microSD built-in, mobile hotspot support, and Dolby Mobile with SRS WOW HD sound.
Whatever the price point is and may be, HTC’s Inspire 4G is pretty inspiring for AT&T’s current series of lackluster Android phones like the Aria, no? Press release after the cut. Via: AT&T

It’s time to get on the iPhone Developer servers and download the new iOS 4.3 beta 3 software for iPads, iPhones, and iPod Touches. So far, the first new feature found is being able to cancel app downloads. There must be cooler things in there, no?
Remember, back in the day? No, that didn’t come out right.
Remember when the only option for an Android tablet was a 5-inch, well-built, but slightly out of place phone/tablet first called the Dell Mini 5, then renamed to the Streak? Yes, I’ve reviewed it back in August – been there, done that. But Dell was kind enough (or just desperate) to get the Streak a meaningful place in the world, so they slapped Android 2.2 on it, and outed the Streak 7 as well. This may not be part of the abyss of reviews one might see for the newer and cooler, Streak 7, but it shares the same interface in a smaller package, so please continue. Read More →
Honestly, this is pretty accurate. Via: PA
Here it is! The T-Mobile G2, with a “controversial” sub-1GHz clock speed (800MHz to be exact), albeit with newer technology, so it’s actually faster. A 5 megapixel camera with 720p HD video recording, Android 2.2 vanilla with a boatload of Google apps, and HSPA+(4G?) speeds achievable on T-Mobile network. Let’s take a quick stride through the full specs and software, then run straight through the review and on to the always-difficult conclusion section.

An essential feature of the Nintendo 3DS will not come at launch, says Nintendo chief Satoru Iwata at a recent investor conference. The feature will come as an OTA update – in May. And interestingly enough, said feature that will be missing is none other than the digital game store.
A web-connected next-gen 3D gaming device with no built-in game store. Disappointment, indeed.
Keep in mind, the 3DS launches on March 27th for $249. That’s a long ways away for two essential features on an already threated (in some ways) device due to the NGP/PSP2 launching at the end of the year. Via: Electronista
Anyone remember the Dell Streak? If you do, just think bigger by about 2 inches or so. The Streak 7 uses Android 2.2 with the Dell Stage UI, has HSPA+ “4G” capability with speeds up to 21MBps, a dual-core 1GHz Nvidia Tegra 2 processor, 16GB of internal storage, a 1.3 megapixel front-facing camera with a 5MP on the back, and pricing at $200 on contract or $450 without. Considering a review of the Streak 5 with the same Stage UI is coming soon (or should have been published as of yesterday here), you can expect a Streak 7 review won’t be that far off. Via: T-Mobile
Hear that geeks? In a recent Twitter conversation with C418 (but he didn’t actually respond to mine, he just did so publicly), the genius creator for the Minecraft soundtrack, revealed the release date and pricing for the Minecraft Alpha music album, which is before the Beta one that all of us know and love. The date? Not set in stone, but it’s mid-February. The price? $4. Where? Probably on his site. I don’t know about you, but I’m buying it. Via: Twitter (@C418)
Mark that. 3AM Eastern Standard Time, February 3. That’s the time the iPhone 4 pre-order system goes online, and probably when Verizon’s site goes down (hopefully not?). Pricing is as follows: 16GB and 32GB black iPhone 4s at $199 and $299 respectively, for $70 you get 450 minutes and unlimited data, wireless mobile hotspot is another $20, and finally SMS is 250 for $5 and unlimited for $20. Hopefully you won’t go into debt on this iDevice purchase. Via: Verizon iPhone 4 Waiting Page
