Sony Ericsson's Satio has seen a few changes since its last MWC appearance (as the Idou), most of which have taken place on the inside.  Running the latest version of Symbian S60, complete with UI fettling from Sony Ericsson themselves, it's now a harmonious and consistent OS with no glaring leftovers of its non-touchscreen past.

Microsoft Xbox 360 hits 30 million mark

Microsoft Xbox 360 hits 30 million mark

Microsoft has something to be happy about today. They just announced that their Xbox 360 video game console has sold over 30 million units since the device was released several years go.

Sales of the Xbox 360 have actually increased 28 percent this year, and over 20 million people are signed up to the Xbox Live network. Supposedly, an announcement will be made about Xbox Live on June 1st at a press event, so we'll just have to wait and see what that's all about.

It seems the announcement will have something to do with integrating further entertainment means into the system. Currently, the Xbox 360 is the second-best selling console in the U.S. though it's often surpassed by the Wii.

SlashGear were at Sony Ericsson's London launch event for the Yari and Aino cellphones today, and we grabbed the chance to get some hands-on time with the pair.  According to Sony Ericsson, the aim of the new devices - plus their flagship Satia sibling - is to blend entertainment and communication.  With that in mind, the Aino (seen here) can stream content from a PlayStation 3 via the Sony Remote Play system, while the Yari is packed with motion-sensitive games.

Gizmodo got their hands on Microsoft's answer to the iPod Touch: the Zune HD. So far, they've only had a few minutes to play with the device, but their impressions are favorable.

Rumor: Comcast bumping Internet service up to 100Mbps

Rumor: Comcast bumping Internet service up to 100Mbps

Well this certainly is an interesting rumor. It seems that Comcast might be considering boosting their DOCSIS 3.0 cable Internet service up to 100Mbps. And with a current 50Mbps cap, this would be good news for anyone using the service.

Apparently, the rumor stated that Comcast would be adding on between 40 and 50Mbps of bandwidth to their current offerings. Only downstream upgrades are mentioned, not upstream. Plus, it's not know if this update would cause a change in the plan pricing or if the 250GB cap would be adjusted.

Comcast has already said they would be upgrading to 100Mbps last year, but missed the mark. It seems that current network capacity has been the company's biggest hurdle in completing the upgrade.
