SlashGear Morning Wrap-Up: April 6th, 2011

Welcome to the SlashGear Morning Wrap-Up with your host, Chris Burns! I think I’ll take over the Daily Show someday. It’ll be horrible! Before that happens, let’s talk about everything that’s happened before we woke up here in the West. Let us begin with a big fat review written by yours truly that was actually published last night, but perhaps beyond a lot of people’s bedtimes: T-Mobile Nokia C7 Astound – it’s the same as the rest of the world, but different. Then hit the advice books with Chris Davies as he admits: “for a gadget reviewer, I’m rubbish at advice.”

First have a look at the all-touch webOS “StingRay” and marvel at the fact that HP isn’t either releasing these objects faster or taking a trip to the crypt. Next, Apple takes a hint from blathering maniacs everywhere and simply deletes the White iPhone from their system while they make Toyota pull a jailbroken iPhone theme or face their wrath. See a secret Apple Dock Connector that may include Thunderbolt speeds, and see Kee Utility ship their iPhone Desk Phone Dock so you can… use a bigger receiver again, like you always wanted.

On an Android tip, see the Samsung Galaxy S II claim dual-core 1.2GHz speeds, the HTC EVO View 4G (aka HTC Flyer) claim a release with Android 3.0 Honeycomb, and the HTC Pyramid take on it’s street name: “Sensation!” Then see Fring Beta take on group video calls and the Xperia PLAY dump its entire contents, including games and wallpapers!

Then the last pack: make sure you’re not being HACKED by Epsilon while you’re sitting pretty on Verizon, see Apple reject an app for lack of functionality then release an app themselves with the same functionality as the one they just rejected, and buy yourself the Facebook-laden INQ Cloud Touch – today!

BONUS: Gamestop claims to have a gaming tablet coming down the pipeline – Kyocera Katsura watch your back!
