Apple cuts down on apps with adult content but some are slipping through yet

The main news story of latest days, when it comes to iPhone app store is: Apple has removed thousands of apps with adult content and is rejecting new ones that have some adult content, even if it is just silhouette, not photo, that might be visible. While browsing apps that were released in latest 3 days, we have encountered this one, that obviously must have slipped through Apple’s strict review process (approved merely few hours ago!):

Sony Ericsson X10 Mini Pro demo video

Xperia_X10_mini_pro_Open_Black Following on from the Sony Ericsson press conference held in Barcelona just before the official start of MWC a week ago James managed to track down a couple of the new handset announced by Sony Ericsson, namely the X10 Mini and the X10 Mini PRO.

These are two handsets that really surprised me, I didn’t expect Sony Ericsson to actually announce these. Both new handset have run on Android 1.6 but have a heavily customised user interface. In fact when I saw them in action earlier this week they were almost unrecognisable as being Android.

As you’ll see in the video both the X10 Mini and the Mini PRO have a footprint not much larger than a credit card but still manage to pack in plenty of cool features and what impressed me so was just how usable the QWERTY keyboard is on the Mini PRO, I expected it to be far too cramped to be viable for everyday use but I think it works pretty well!

We’ll be pushing Sony Ericsson hard to get our hands on these ASAP for a full review, but have a look at the demo video that James recorded at MWC where a nice lady from Sony Ericsson takes us on a quick tour. Video, photos and press release follow.

Samsung Wave demo video

The Samsung Wave As I mentioned the other day, one of the handsets to get quite a lot of attention at MWC was the new Samsung Wave.

The Wave is the first Samsung device to have the new Bada operating system and the new TouchWiz 3.0 user interface. On top of that it’s also the first handset to incorporate Super AMOLED technology and DNIe. DNIe technology is proven display technology which incorporated to Samsung’s LCD TV and LED TV lineups.

James popped over to see the folks on the Samsung stand at MWC and got them to give him a quick demo of the Wave. I think James was quite impressed with the clarity of the display and the responsiveness of the touchscreen on the Wave.

We hope to get our hands on the Wave over the next few weeks for a full review but until then have a look at the demo video, photos and full press release after the break.
