We hope you enjoyed your holiday weekend and we’re back again to deliver the best in the world of tech. In today’s US Update we give you a rundown of the latest from iOS, show you the new Luxeed LED illuminated keyboard, explain the current Android Market issues and more.
First up, the daily iOS update. Digitimes is reporting that Apple will ship between 20 and 21 million iPhone in Q1 2011. Skype for iPhone and iPod touch is coming. A leaked document shows the service, but it was pulled from Skype’s websites minute after being published. The Wall Street Journal’s Walt Mossberg has named the Apple iPad the best product of 2010.
The Luxeed U5 LED illuminated keyboard is available in both black and white. The keyboard offers 430 programmable color diodes. This could be the perfect gift for the gamer in your family.
After EA mobile did their 99 cent sale for Android games it seems the “f word” is back in the headlines, fragmentation. The new 15 minute refund window is becoming a problem now that new 3D titles require downloads in excess of 100MB. These games simply require more than 15 minutes to download, making the refund window void.
Samsung is looking to challenge the iPod touch at CES 2011. The company has announced the Samsung Galaxy Player, an Android-powered media player that features a 1 GHz processor and WVGA Super Clear LCD display. The device will run Android 2.2 at launch and is expected to compete with Apple’s music player line up.
Last in this morning is new on the Dell Streak 7. This seven Inch version of the Dell Streak also runs Android and will be available on T-mobile USA. Other carrier launches are unknown at this time, but since it is a GSM device we’d expect to see a European launch as well. The device will be unveiled at CES 2011 along with the Galaxy Player.
That wraps up things this fine morning from the states. Thanks for spending your morning with us as we break the headlines fresh off the press from our side of the world. Until tomorrow, this is Nick saying over and out.
