David Meyer from ZDNet UK recently got a chance to check out the newest HTC Magic, the second Android smartphone to arrive here in the UK. The below are a few shots from ZDNet which both compares it with its predecessor, the HTC T-Mobile G1 and shows you what neat features the new Android platform version 1.5 will include.

From BusinessWeek’s sources, Verizon Wireless is in talks with Apple to launch two new iPhone-like devices as early as this summer: iPhone Lite and Apple Media Pad.
iPhone Lite is smaller, thinner and cheaper than the current iPhone 3G. It is intended predominantly for calls rather than the full gamut of smartphone functionality. The reason iPhone Lite is much cheaper than existing iPhone is that it relies on a so-called system on a chip, which incorporates many types of chips and drives down the cost of silicon in such devices. The new chip could also potentially be used in the media pad.
As for the Apple Media Pad, which would be something bigger than a cellphone but smaller than a netbook. It is basically similar to the size of a Amazon Kindle 2 but with a full touchscreen. It allows users watching HD video, listening to music and doing other things. The Apple Media Pad would also support VoIP over its WiFi connection.
The H1N1 Swine Flu pandemic has created a lot of anxiety at the moment. But thanks to the technology we have these days, you can now see the cases spreading in real time on Google Maps (once the WHO (World Health Organisation) has declared them).
The current H1N1 Swine Flu has been on the the headlines in the last couple of days. The H1N1 Swine Flu is a mutation of a port virus that jumped from pigs to humans. Already 103 people have died in Mexico, if you’re cautious about this outbreak and want to keep track of the spread of this possible pandemic, the below is a quick legend to looking at the Swine Flu tracking map on Google.
The different colour on the map indicate the following:
- Pink markers are suspect
- Purple markers are confirmed
- Deaths lack a dot in marker
- Yellow markers are negative
Are there many Star Trek fans visiting this blog? I honestly don’t know. Nevertheless, this simple iPhone case mod, which I must admit haven’t seen many out there as yet looks interesting and would be neat to show off to friends. While I’m unsure what sort of reaction you would get, its probably going to be either great or absolutely boring. So if you’ve got a Star Trek federation pin lying around somewhere, you might like to give it a try
We’ve just received some news tip from one of our readers that they’ve spotted the LG GD900 Crystal on the Carphone’s coming soon section. The Carphone who are usually very accurate with their dates have slated the LG GD900 Crystal to arrive in mid-May this year. You may remember that it was first thought the GD900 actually had a crystal made transparent keypad, this has been proven to be glass. Nevertheless we look forward to trying it out as this will be the first ever to be seen on a mobile and as we’ve featured before in some videos, this keypad sports some interesting features.
