It was a great opportunity for us to be able to take part in the launch of the LG Arena KM900 blogger event last night in London. We know from some of your messages that there’s been quite alot of interest in the phone since it was first announced during the Mobile World Congress (MWC), we’re happy to tell you all that the Arena will officially be available by the end of this weekend.
We were told at the event by LG Sales and Marketing Director, John Barton that the Arena will be arriving the UK mobile networks, Orange and T-Mobile, not surprisingly Phones4u and the Carphone Warhouse will also be involved in retailing.

Skype application for iPhone is official! As it was rumored earlier in the week, its now official and available for download absolutely free on iTunes, App Store now. As with the desktop IM software, Skype to Skype calls will be free and you’d also be able to chat with your contacts and friends using this app. As you would expect it does require access to a WiFi network though. The audio quality is good even through using WiFi which has been a problem with some non-Skype apps providing Skype support. The iPhone version of Skype supports VoIP service, chatting, incoming conference calls but its a shame you won’t be able to initate outgoing conference calls.

Though we don’t exactly know how this geeky hacker did it and some of you may find it rather unecessary. It appears that the Sony PSP makes a nice secondary PC status monitor in this hack. Displaying your PCs memory, CPU, CPU temperature status, etc. So for anyone who has a PSP and can’t afford yet to get a second monitor for the PC, this could be worthwhile doing Another shot after the break.
