The Daily Slash: November 10 2010

What a frajabulous day of revealing leaks, first looks, and yes, HAX. There were not one, but TWO sightings of Droid 2 functionalities in the wild. The myTouch 4G was blessed with a Permaroot, and that brand new Android-to-iPhone port was granted a no-computer install and activation. Then to rather peek-a-boo moments: a Sharp ISO1 Unboxing and a Hustler app for Android. Apple tops the holiday want-lists (is anyone surprised?), the SlashGear Pad and Quill iPad case giveaway winner is revealed, and Nintendo wants to own "It's On Like Donkey Kong!" All this and some lovely FEATURES coming your way today, on The Daily Slash!

Your Leaf will have Windows Embedded Automotive 7, and It’s Bumpin

Approximately 100 years after Henry Ford starts producing the Model T, now, finally, we've got some nice computers jammed up in there. Microsoft Windows Embedded Automotive 7 is out, and it's super fancy. Obviously this isn't the first computer system in a car, not by a long shot, but it's definitely exciting enough to call a milestone. This system offers Silverlight for nicer UIs, better expandability than ever before for third-party plugins, and real-time text-to-speech technology.

Can Tablets save Desktops?

Can Tablets save Desktops?

With all the latest forecasts from my analyst colleagues at IDC, Gartner and Forrester showcasing declining desktops market share over the next few years, i'd like to pose an alternate question. Can tablets, like the iPad which was not on the market at the time the forecasts were made, actually re-invigorate the desktop market?

The Fate of Windows Phone 7

The Fate of Windows Phone 7

With the KIN entering the market, HP's acquisition of Palm, and a number of other industry events, I have been asked quite a bit about Microsoft's chances of success with Windows Phone 7. Microsoft is losing traction in this market rapidly and is in desperate need of strategy that will keep their operating system competitive in a market dominated by RIM, Apple, and Google. If you look at the numbers released by Gartner toward the end of last year projecting mobile OS market share, they projected in 2012 Microsoft to rank 4th on the list with just over 12% of the smartphone OS market share. 12% of the market is not bad and would come out to roughly 70 million devices in that year. That being said, I can't imagine Microsoft being content with 4th place. So what do they need to do to be successful in a fragmented smartphone OS landscape in which we expect some consolidation to happen in the next few years?

Bluetooth 4.0 finalized: low power mode & boosted range

Bluetooth 3.0 may still be a rarity on devices, but the Bluetooth Special Interest Group (SIG) aren't letting that stop them from whipping ahead with the next spec in line.  Bluetooth 4.0 has been finalized, and it delivers both a new low-energy mode suited to indecently frugal devices like watches, sensors and remotes, together with a boost in potential range.  While the SIG expect most devices to stick with the regular 30 foot/10m range, Bluetooth 4.0 theoretically supports up to 200 feet and beyond.
