Yesterday we gave a slight mention of the new browser for their mobile OS, but we feel we need to make separate mention of it since it’s being released as a separate product almost and received almost as many updates as the whole rest of the OS. So, it netted H.264, Flash, and Silverlight support.
Microsoft’s Surface is a 30” multi-touch display that is crafted into a table and has tons of other features as well. One such feature, the ability to recognize and connect to mobile phone, is one that ATT plans on capitalizing on.
This particular CloudBook model packs in an 8.9” WVGA display, a VIA C7-M ULV processor, WiFi b/g, Bluetooth, GPS, and 2x 2MP webcams. But the most important feature is the addition of support for Sprint’s upcoming Xohm WiMAX network.
This UMPC is fairly amazing on its own, what with the touchscreen, Windows Vista or XP Tablet Edition, Intel Core Solo ULV processor, WiFi, b/g, Bluetooth 2.0, and small compact size. Now you can add support for Sprint’s upcoming Xohm WiMAX network to that list of connectivity options/features.
Nokia has finally, officially, announced their latest Internet Tablet. True to the rumors, it is keeping the N810 name, but appending the whole WiMax Edition thing to the end of it.
There is also a video walk-thru below so you can see what this new video service ATT is offering is all about. In case you didn’t know the LG Vu is going to be the device that ATT is going to use to launch their new mobile TV service.
The Instinct is a device that Sprint partnered with Samsung to come up with. It has a 3.1-inch touchscreen with haptic feedback and there are also three hard keys below the screen, one for home, one for back, and one for phone functionality.
The phone has EV-DO Rev. A, GPS, and a Sprint/Samsung customized UI for near iPhone-like ease of use. There are other iPhone similarities including the Sprint Music Store, Navigation, TV, Visual Voicemail and a full HTML web browser, all of which, save for the a la carte music downloads, included in Sprint’s new Simply Everything $100 a month plan.
The home screen is customizable, kind of like the iPhone, it also has Bluetooth, with audible caller ID, expandable memory up to 8GB, a 2MP camera/camcorder, voice activated functions galore, threaded text messages, Mobile Sync, and the ability to operate as a modem. The dimensions of the device are a slim 2.17x4.57x.49 inches with a weight of 4.4 ounces, it also has a Li-Ion battery that provides up to 5.75 hours of continuous talk time. More pics after the jump!
Mio, long time manufacturer of GPS devices, is partnering with ATX, a major provider of telematics services in both the US and Europe.

Hands-on Mobile and Magmic Games are the two companies that are partnered up in an effort to bring one of the best mobile games of all time to your BlackBerry. Being a primarily business oriented device the BlackBerry has been passed up on a lot of really cool mobile games, but this is one that you can mark off the list.
Personally I am just wondering if you’ll have access to all 5 frets or if they are sticking with the three frets that previous mobile versions have offered up. When you first download the game you’ll get 15 tracks including “Cherub Rock”, “Miss Murder”, “Monsters”, “Suck My Kiss”, and “Trippin On A Hole”.
