Apple iPhone event tomorrow


We are now only one day away from Apples press event they are holding at their headquarters in Cupertino. The rumor squad has been working overtime over the past few months and as you may have noticed we have not paid it a lot of attention. Why, you may ask? Well, many sites have been reporting every rumor they can get their hands on and frankly most of it is a total waste of time as it is all rumor.

Sure, we may well get an iPhone 5 or an iPhone 4S or even something totally different but until tomorrow we will not know for sure.

Apple have once again done a sterling job at preventing leaks so the event tomorrow will have the worlds press and public reeled in waiting for the important announcement.

We will of course bring you the news as soon as we have it but in the meantime you will just have to be patient. Not long to wait.

Nokia maps spotted in the Marketplace


Someone at XDA seems to have spotted some screenshots of Nokia Maps for Windows Phone 7 over in the Marketplace. This is great news as Navigation apps here in the UK on the platform are lacking. The screenshot shown clearly shows a map of Central London.

With Nokia lagging behind on the the release of mango phones, compared to the likes of HTC and Samsung, could Nokia Maps be the unique selling tool they have up their sleeves?

If I was going to buy a Windows Phone I would more than likely get a Nokia if It came with free satellite navigation.

Hands up who agrees with me?

Fabled Touchpad Go details emerge

touchpad-go-specsHard to believe that a mere two months ago there was a fire sale on the HP Touchpad. A shrewd manoeuvre by HP to get Touchpads into the hands of plenty around the world to play with and develop. Now it seems the legacy of the Touchpad was to be grander and more ambitious than previously  thought. just posted exclusive details on the HP TouchPad Go 7 inch version of the TouchPad that was killed before it was released.

After looking at the images, slides, and details, I think I actually may have liked the TouchPad Go since the smaller form factor is appealing for mobile usage, the design looks nicer with a soft touch back, metal buttons, and a higher pixel density display. All the basic elements of the TouchPad are packed into the Go along with a dual-core 1.5GHz Qualcomm processor and GPS receiver. I haven’t seen any of these sneak out on ebay or Craigslist and maybe with the new change at HP there is a chance we may eventually see these released.

Would you have purchased the HP TouchPad Go? Do you find it more appealing than the HP TouchPad?
