Nintendo 3DS Listed for March 18th Release Date in the UK

At the beginning of January, a leaked image showed that the Nintendo 3DS would be launching in the UK on March 1st, 2011, and allowed interested customers to register their interest in the device before the launch.

INQ Cloud Touch Could be the Facebook Phone

The Facebook phone has kind of dropped off the radar recently, especially with Facebook having a pair of announcements not too long ago, and none of them revealing a phone that integrates Facebook in a new and bold way. According to the Bluetooth Special Interest Group (SIG)'s recently filing, dating back to December 23rd, 2010, it looks like the rumors about the Facebook phone are going to pick up speed again, as a new device from INQ has popped up.

CES 2011 is Over and I’m Still Alive

Before the Consumer Electronics Show kicked off in Las Vegas, I wrote up a piece about how I was excited, and equally uneasy, about the trip to Vegas and the impending show. It's the biggest tech show around, and while it may not seem like it, there really is a lot to do. But, time marches on, and here we are a couple days after the show has officially wrapped up. So, I figured I'd tell you how it all went, and whether or not I'm looking forward to next year's extravaganza.

Verizon Employees Not Allowed to Get iPhone 4

The iPhone 4 on Verizon is a pretty big deal, especially for Verizon. The carrier has more than likely done everything they can think of to prepare for the masses that will jump onto the network to get the device. But, what you won't find are Verizon employees with the device in their own hand, ready to show off. We've been informed that the iPhone 4 will not be carried by Verizon employees, because the carrier is preventing the phone from being added to employee accounts.

Now that the device is real, and we've managed to get some hands-on time with it, we were curious to see if Verizon's and Apple's claims that the only-slightly altered antenna version for the CDMA-based variant of the iPhone 4 (in the United States) wouldn't suffer from the same problems as its GSM cousin were true. We took the device in our hand, and we began to put our hand, and fingers, in all of the spots that the antenna usually suffered from. We managed to get some interesting results.
