The Daily Slash: October 21th 2010

Hello and welcome to a rather aftershock of a day for Apple and an oncoming wave of a day for Windows Phone 7. SlashPhone had a lot of news about release dates and kneecap shredding in anticipation for phones. Dummies and tablets and developer notes galore on Android Community. And SlashGear bringing you everything from game glasses to head lights to holders and docks for all your new fancies.

From Across the Web: One thing that's so wild, it may well change the world (until the pervs get at it) caused a bit of buzz today: Facelette. It comes right on the heels of FaceTime's release on desktop machines. This lovely little thing takes FaceTime and clashes it with the lost dream that was Chat Roulette. Maybe this time there'll be a lot less man parts. Check it out at http://facelette.com/

Plus, another big bit of news is the HP Slate 500 that we got our hands on! Windows based and although it appears at first to be an iPad rival, we're told that it's aiming at a completely different market: an enterprise, business-centric market. Believe it! Take a look at the video presentation by the people who put this tablet together here below, then enjoy the rest of our full-fledged hands on review.
