    B&N Nook

    Barnes & Noble has announced a new, Wi-Fi only, version of the Nook today, offering a lower introductory price point next to the more expensive 3G model.

    Available to buy from today, the new Wi-Fi model is available for just $149, over $100 cheaper than the original price of the 3G model. For that price, you’re still getting what’s essentially the same Nook as before, just without the 3G internet connection.

    T-Mobile has announced a new addition to their line of smartphones, with the introduction of the myTouch 3G Slide. Although we’ve seen it unofficially before now, the press release confirms some interesting software additions to the device, amongst other details.

    Running Android 2.1, the myTouch 3G Slide consists of a 3.4-inch HVGA touchscreen and a slide-out QWERTY keyboard for text input. You’ll find a 5 megapixel camera with a flash, so that you can take pictures on the move, and an 8GB microSD card as standard to house all your media and apps.

    Today has been absolutely nuts - first 3 new Android phones leaked from Dell. Then, another tablet, also from Dell.

    And now we have this: a Canadian Linux hacker by the name of Planetbeing posted a 9 minute video of an iPhone 2G running Android. Yes, that is an Android 1.5 or 1.6 dual booted on an iPhone running the iPhone OS.

    Planetbeing, being a smart cookie that he is, has ported Linux to run on iPhone hardware over a year ago.

    4G Sprint

    Yesterday we reported that Sprint will not charge extra for using 4G on your phone, based on the response from a Sprint customer service rep. Some people pointed out that customer service reps are oftentimes wrong, and while we certainly agree with that statement, the CSR was quite confident in her response. Additionally, a good portion of the news market nowadays is comprised of rumors.

    Thankfully, we didn't have to wait too long for the "rumor" to be confirmed.

    Sprint 4G

    After today's announcement of the HTC EVO 4G, formerly HTC Supersonic, everyone seemed really excited - what's not to like? The phone is absolutely amazing, more powerful than ever before. Many questions were finally answered but one remained:

    I just got off the phone with a Sprint CSR, Kathy, who assured me that Sprint will NOT charge extra for using 4G on your new EVO 4G.
