The Daily Slash: December 22 2010

Check out the full review of the cutest little Android you'll ever meet, LG Optimus U. Witness a wild little lawsuit as Google wins the Android trademark. See as both the face and the rest of the body of the HTC Incredible HD (Verizon LTE phone) are revealed in an obvious puzzle piece leak. Witness the breaking of Skype for a few hours today, basically bringing the entire internet to its knees (or so says users of Skype.) Take a peek at the new HTC Media Link and the AUDEO PFE 022 + Mic Earbuds as we unbox and get our hands on both of them. Finally, Chris Davies columns to the tune of I won’t buy the Nexus S and The Late Adopter - both rather amazing bits of literature if I do say so myself. All this and MORE on The Daily Slash!
