US Update - Skype video for iPhone, Android 3.0, Geinimi Android Trojan

It’s the end of the week and we’ve saved the best for last. In today’s tech update, better known as the US Update, we go hands on with Skype for iPhone — now with video calling, we take a look at the new LG LW6500 Cinema 3D TV, uncover the Geinimi Android Trojan affecting China and more.

First up, Skype for iPhone now supports video calling over both WiFi and 3G. The latest version is the best yet and from our hands on time with the app we think it’ll be a major hit. You can download the app free, but if you’d like to find out more before you take the plunge, head over to our review here.

LG has announced the LW6500 Cinema 3D TV. This is the world’s first certified “flicker free” set and does not require the expensive shutter glasses seen on competing models. We’ll have a chance to try the new set at CES 2011 next week.

Geinimi, a new Trojan affecting Android devices, has just emerged in China. This complex Trojan is being “grafted” onto repackaged versions of legitimate applications, primarily games, and distributed in third-party Chinese Android app markets.

Barnes & Noble is reporting that sales of e-books have topped traditional books in their online store. The Nook is also officially the company’s best-selling product, like the Kindle is for Amazon. With 20 percent of the e-book market share, Barnes & Noble will make a huge push in 2011.

Last up this morning is news on an upcoming Android Honeycomb tablet from LG. The rumored 8.9 inch tablet will be unveiled at CES 2011 according to the Korea Times, but we’ll just have to wait until next week to find out. For now we have been told that it will be a dual-core tablet and it runs Android 3.0. More to come next week.

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 Monday, this is Nick saying over and out.
