Hello, PlayStation Phone

Simple put, this is the PlayStation Phone. Built by SonyEricsson as the PlayStation Phone, the prototype seen above has Android (possibly 3.0 Gingerbread or similar) and contains a geeky 1GHz processor, 512MB of RAM, 1GB of ROM, microSD support, a special Sony Marketplace that will be home to games PlayStation Phone games and it also has a camera at unknown resolution and function. Controls are the same as the PSP Go! and feautre normal shoulder-pad buttons as well as a space in between that may offer multitouch. Hit up my half-buds at Engadget for the full scoop.

White iPhone 4 Delayed Till Spring 2011

Darn. It.

The white iPhone 4 is delayed again. Don’t ask us, the white iPhone 4 has had some manufacturing issues regarding the whiteness of the plastic around the frame, making sure that none of the materials are visible at all. While the issue was thought to be resolved this summer, Apple has said otherwise:

We’re sorry to disappoint customers waiting for the white iPhone yet again, but we’ve decided to delay its release until this Spring

Bollocks. And by that point, either a Verizon iPhone would be released, or the iPhone 5 would be announced in the usual June/July time frames. Via: BG @ BGR

Battlefield: Bad Company 2 PC Update Inbound, Saves Me From Insanity

See, this is one of the those ranting/personal posts that gadget bloggers get to do when they feel like it and find that it almost fits. EA will be releasing a PC update to Battlefield: Bad Company 2, which I am a proud owner and pwnage king of. It is unknown if the update will be server-side or player-side, but whatever it might be, the release is “soon” and below are the fixes which will surely save me from the insanity that is bugs in the PC version of the highly-successful first-person shooter:

  • One of the Insignia’s requiring an unobtainable Bronze star for the tracer dart – requirement removed.
  • One of the Insignia’s requiring an unobtainable Bronze star for the tracer dart – requirement removed.
  • Hit registration changes brought over from MOH to BC2; several bugfixes, the client<->server send rates have been increased, some of the hitboxes themselves have been changed. This will increase the accuracy of guns, but will not make much of a difference to the knife. Removed the blue box behind the chat window.
  • The 2-second immunity when spawning/being revived can will now be immediately remove either by firing, zooming, or any movement (move, crouch, jump). Merely looking around will not remove the invulnerability. In essence: If a person moves, he is never invulnerable.
  • 3D vision fixed.

I’m looking forward to it, EA and DICE.

ASUS U35JC Review

Nothing major here, just another review unit getting scorched and reviewed. An Nvidia Optimus laptop from ASUS, the U35JC. Besides those Punkbsuter issues that Nvidia has and me working with Nvidia to resolve them and publish a new Verde driver that would fix everything for all Optimus graphics owners, the U35JC is a pleasant Intel Core i3-based laptop with 4GB of DDR3 RAM and a 13.3-inch screen, although there are some dents in its resume.

White iPhone 4 Shows Up On Apple Store iPhone App

Last night, an update for the Apple Store app on the iPhone was released. This app allows you to buy Apple iDevices, on your iDevice, and in this case, the white iPhone 4. Yeah, you know, the iPhone that’s ‘hard to build’ and is pretty much mystical. Moving on, going into the “Reservations” tab in the app, followed by “Reserve Product” will actually allow you to select the white iPhone 4 in either 16GB or 32GB configurations, for $199 or $299 respectively. While this option doesn’t appear on the online Apple Store nor the retail stores, this only begs for one to wonder: is the white iPhone 4 here? Via: MacRumors

Update: So now Apple has gone and removed the white iPhone 4 from the app. Now what?

Adobe Bringing Flash 10.1 Windows Phone 7 And Even BlackBerry

This isn’t something you’d see in the news everyday, but hey, it’s happening and that means I have to write about it. Adobe has officially spoken of releasing Flash 10.1 to Windows Phone 7 and BlackBerry, as well as Symbian (bleh!), MeeGo (meh) and of course HP webOS 2.0. While Android 2.2 already offers Flash 10.1 in full, soon it won’t be the only one, since obviously, you were just reading this post and found that out.

The important part of the recent press release is included in the rest of the post.
