No kidding! RIM has officially announced the acquisition of TAT (The Astonishing Tribe) and part of the deal will be that the brains behind The Astonishing Tribe will work under the umbrella of Research in Motion.

HP and Palm have been trying their best to keep the lid tight on the next Palm device. No doubt we haven’t received any leaks of Palm Pre 2.

You love your Xbox 360. You love to score and break records on your Xbox 360. And, you love to be a Microsoft guy throughout. For Xbox fans, the amalgamation of Xbox Live with Windows Phone 7 is something that you should put your hands together for, however do be informed that Xbox live for Windows Phone 7 will stand no where close to the real Xbox 360 experience.
We knew that it was right on our heads. Call it rumors or call it unofficial announcements but Windows Phone 7 has finally come out of the hiding and that too within October itself. Microsoft took the decision to take a backseat in the world of smartphones and launch their style of smartphone after alot of market research. Looks like they have come up with something that is different and that is easy to use but it might be just a bit late.
