SlashGear Morning Wrap-Up: January 18 2011

Hoax! Samsung Vibrant 4G Android phone for T-Mobile with Android 2.3 turns out to be Totally Faked! Then no fake! We’re having a heated debate on the effects of Consumer Reports hating on Verizon’s iPhone 4 – Good News for Android? See then another object ripe for debate: Intel IPAD – pre-dating the iPad by nine years! Then a product that’s making people get sick in a different way: Reports of 3DS users feeling ill surface after 3DS showcase in Japan. On the other side of the spectrum, Microsoft speaks with ChevronWP7 team, making them feel mighty healthy for their hacking of Windows Phone 7! Finally, take a peek at a couple reviews you may have missed last night – one for MacBook Air 11-inch and iPod Touch GelaSkins, the other for a lovely orange Lenovo U260 IdeaPad Notebook!
