Nokia EVP Anssi Vanjoki Says Using Android ‘like peeing in your pants for warmth’

This one we’ll never forget. According to sharp-shooter Anssi Vanjoki, executive vice president of mobile solutions, said to the Financial Times today that Nokia (and just about any manufacturer who uses Android) is no better than Finnish boys who “pee in their pants” for warmth in the winter. Tell HTC that with thier record profits, Anssi.

Yeah. He said that.

So anyways, do Finnish boys really pee in their pants for warmth?

Avoid The Twitter JavaScript Virus Going On Now

A nasty little exploit has just occurred on the official Twitter website. Putting your mouse over a tweet will automatically retweet a message to your followers. In the unfortunate case of Sarah Brown (wife of the former British Prime Minister), malicious content and pr0n was what showed up first. This security exploit has not been patched as of yet. The exploit does not affect third-party apps in any way (i.e Seesmic, Tweetdeck, Twitter Mobile site, and official Twitter apps).

Simply log off the official site for now.

Panasonic LUMIX GH2 Is Their 3D Shootin’ Micro Four Thirds

The LUMIX GH2 is a new Micro Four Thirds camera revealed by Panasonic today, because, you know, some mystical thing called Photokina 2010 is going on right now. The GH2 has support for a 3D lens, but its main weapon is its 16 megapixel LIVE MOS, and can take 14 megapixel pictures while taking 1080p HD video at 5 frames-per-second. It’s got a 3-inch, 460,000-dot swiveling LCD touchscreen that can be used for autofocus and such, and finally the price.

Oh. Ahem, it’s the flagship Micro Four Thirds for Panasonic now, so it’s gonna cost you — $899.95 for just the body; $999.95 for a package with a 14-42mm lens; and $1499.95 for a 14-140mm bundle this December. [Panasonic]

HTC Lexikon Leaks As Verizon’s Third Android With Sense?

The HTC Lexikon, very possibly the next HTC-built DROID in the line, is due at Verizon, as the leaked image above from Droid-Life suggests. Let’s quickly go down into the nitty-gritty: Android 2.2 with a 3.8-inch WVGA display and 480 x 800 resolution, 512 MB RAM, MSM7630 chipset, 800 MHz processor (perhaps the new Snapdragon?), 5 megapixel camera, 4 GB internal storage, QWERTY keypad, and HTC Sense UI.

On a personal note, what makes the Lexikon coolest is that awesome capacitive search button and that serious groove with the HTC logo on it.


Google Docs Editing Finally Coming For Android and iPad

It’s a feature every mobile user is dying for. Well, not dying, literally, but they’re hungry for it (not literally either).

The Google Docs suite is a cloud-based word processing, spreadsheet and presentation platform, and as long as you have a Google account you’re in. GDocs has such a major fanbase and reach that Microsoft has released a free online suite of its Microsoft Office 2010 software, but is nowhere near as good as Google’s.

Moving on, a statement from Google today on one of their numerous blogs indicates that editing of Google Docs will be coming to Android and the iPad in “the next few weeks”; hopefully as a full-featured Google Docs editing app. And until these apps are released, users have (and had) to rely on third-party applications.
