HP's CEO as been reported to have been talking to other companies to possibly license their exclusive WebOS platform. One of the companies reported would be Samsung! If that's the case, it won't be long before we'll start seeing 4.5" Super Amoled powered WebOS loaded devices.
Rumor has it that RIM has scrapped their new 10" Playbook to focus on a new QNX powered Superphone. Unfortunately, the phone is reported to be only single-core, which is a little underpowered compared to all of the dual-core guys being released today.
The HTC Status (the ChaCha with a dedicated Facebook button), aka the almighty "Facebook" phone, is reported to be coming soon.
MySpace was just sold for a rather respectable sum of monies. Was it worth it? On top of that, Justin Timberlake (yes former N'Sync member) becomes one of MySpace's shareholders.
There were some leaked documents from AT&T talking about a 4G LTE iPad coming next year!
Press releases have been raving about the camera embedded in the upcoming MyTouch 4G Slide, claiming it to be the best camera to have ever graced the body of a cellphone.
An inside source tells us that the new MacBook Airs have started to ship - some of them still in their delivery trucks, and some have actually arrived in stores. Top add the cherry on top of this MacBook Airy goodness, it is speculated that they will be powered by Apple's latest and greatest operating system.
