Pure Jongo hands-on: Sonos on a budget

Pure is on a mission, and that's to steal the streaming music crown from industry heavyweights Sonos. The strategy to do that is make Pure Jongo cheap, undercutting Sonos' premium price tag with a range of affordable wireless speakers and WiFi music adapters at up to a third of the price of a Sonos box. And, just as you'd expect, there's on-demand playlists and internet radio from iPad, iPhone, and Android remote control apps.

PURE Music takes on Spotify at half the price

Does the world need another Spotify rival? PURE things it does, hence PURE Music, the company's new streaming media service that promises a 15m+ catalog of tracks that can be accessed from an iPhone or Android app, a PC/Mac browser or their standalone internet radios. Launching in the UK in December - with gradual international rollout after that - PURE Music's big advantage over Spotify is the price: just £4.99 ($7.99) per month for unlimited streaming.

Microsoft Pink Confirmed by SanDisk

Here's a real quick, albeit pretty substantial leak from a company that should probably know better. Courtesy of PhoneScoop, SanDisk has spilled the beans on Microsoft's big upcoming project.

And while there were all sorts of rumors swirling around which handsets could be included in that box thrown through a paper sheet. But, the general consensus was Project Pink from Microsoft. And, on top of that Microsoft gave us an invite to an event this coming Monday, April 12th. All the stars are lined up, and now we have a confirmation, that Pink is, indeed, the announcement.

The Daily Slash: April 7th 2010

It's Wednesday. And interestingly enough, we're probably not the only ones considering today "the day before." The day before what? Well, it's the day before we get to fire up our legendary, homegrown liveblogging system again. We'll be at the iPhone OS 4.0 event, and hopefully you'll join us as we detail what's going down with the latest software update from Cupertino. Until then, we've got tonight's Daily Slash. As we go forth, we'll look into the best of the best in the R3 Media's network. And in the dredge net, we've got the most notorious eReader rumored to make a retail appearance soon, and we have Nintendo telling the world that the iPad isn't for gaming. Then we've got lightsabers that will save your from the dark. And finally, a cellphone that goes way out of its way to be ridiculous.

AT&T HTC Pure Windows Phone review

AT&T's first Windows Mobile 6.5 smartphone, the HTC Pure, has some reasonable heritage; while the casing may look new, the guts of the handset are shared with HTC's Touch Diamond2.
