Most sports fans like to keep up with their favorite sports and favorite teams in real time. And, there’s no better way to do this than by using mobile applications. The PalmPre is working to provide apps to their users similar to what Apple provides for the Iphone. Of course, the iPhone has been around longer and so not only has Apple had more time to get apps out there, but the third party developers have had more time, too.
Sony Ericsson is the latest phonemaker to officially enter the Android arena. The manufacturer has unveiled the XPERIA X10 Android smartphone. Though it won’t come with Android 2.0, and just the version 1.6 Donut. It is powered by a 1GHz Snapdragon processor, the X10 boasts a 4″ WVGA capacitive touchscreen display, an 8.1 megapixel camera, Wi-Fi, GPS with GSM/GPRS/EDGE in addition to either UMTS/HSPA. This will be dependent on where in the world you are and what networks will be releasing it.
Launched just over the summer, TomTom has not had the best of start with their new iPhone turn by turn satellite navigation app. With an overall rating on the App Store of just three stars and CoPilot sitting above them on top of the league in Navigations apps, its hefty £59.99 pricetag (and £99 in-car kit) doesn’t help either.
Despite a large amount of unimpressed users thus far, the TomTom app does have features which most users would expect to see from their sat nav, these include IQ Routes which helps you choose the most efficiency route to travel towards your destination, finding places of interest such as restaurants and safety camera and speed warnings.

The iPhone Dev Team have released their latest updated version of PwnageTool, 3.1.3. This new jailbreak tool extends its reach to the third generation iPhone 3GS as well as second generation iPod Touch. For those who would like full confirmation, the new PwnageTool 3.1.3 now supports iPhone, iPhone 3G, iPhone 3GS and first and second gen iPod Touch.
If you’ve got a non-jailbroken iPhone 3GS running 3.1, now’s your chance to redeem it into a proper iPhone once more. The upgraded PwnageTool allows the 3GS (and the second gen iPod touch) to be jailbroken thus allowing users to gain access to third party apps on Cydia for example. That’s the good news, there is one bad news though. The new PwnageTool still lacks the ability to jailbreak brand new iPhones which have come straight-out-of-the-box installed with iPhone OS 3.1.
Update (08072009): Newest redsn0w now jailbreaks all iPhones and iPod Touches, this includes iPhone 3GS as well!
Just a few days later than we had anticipated due to a few problems encountered by the iPhone Dev Team but ultrasn0w has finally been released. The latest iPhone OS 3.0 unlocking tool for iPhone 3G which was originally known as yellowsn0w has now been renamed as ultrasn0w.
It is very simple to use, in fact you don’t need to download it from a computer, all you need to do is have your iPhone 3G jailbroken using Pwnage Tool or redsn0w so that you can have access to apps from Cydia, from there simply search for ultrasn0w.
