Droid 2 gets reviewed - the competition

Phil Nickinson from Android Central has done a full review of the Verizon Motorola Droid 2, the second coming of the first Android phone to really rocket into the mainstream. With a big screen, ample app marketplace, full hardware keyboard, and Android 2.2 Froyo, it seems to improve upon the original in every way, even if it now faces stiffer competition from its own sibling on its own network, the Droid X. How does it net out?

Jobs: Performance fix for iOS 4 on iPhone 3G coming soon

Steve Jobs has purportedly told a beleaguered iPhone 3G user that an iOS 4 performance boost is coming soon via software update. Here's the complaint:

I've waited patiently through 4.0.1 and 4.0.2, looking for a fix that will make my phone work again. I've read the forums that advise me to jailbreak my phone or use some other method so I can downgrade back to a version of iPhone 3, however I'm not prepared to use a method that is not supported by Apple.

And the reply from Steve Jobs:

Software update coming soon.

PEOPLE magazine is now available for iPad. The application is free to download, but each issue is a $3.99 in-app purchase.

55-inch iPads now at Apple Store

Forget those rumors about a 7-inch iPad coming sometime soon, it looks like Apple Retail Stores suddenly have a whopping 55-inch iPad in stock.

Well, on display is more like it. Similar to the giant iPhone 3G/3GS that used to dominate the windows, the new 55-inch iPad shows off all the photo, web, and other features available on the regular sized device.

The displays sit atop giant sized books, newspapers, and other assorted old media. They show how Apple is positioning the device as something decidedly for the mainstream, even if they do look a little out of place in the ultra-modern Apple Store.

Sadly, they wouldn't sell it. Not even to a fanboy with creds like mine...

More pictures after the break.

iPhone 4 coming to Optimus Portugal -- if you can afford it

Optimus, Orange's Portuguese brand, is getting set to release iPhone 4 but the price they want for a network-locked device will make it one of the most expensive places in the world to buy one:

  • iPhone 4 16Gb Black - 679,90€
  • iPhone 4 32Gb Black - 769,90€

That's a 70€ price bump for those keeping score at home. If you're in Portugal let us know if you plan to cough up that much cash, or if you have ideas for a cheaper way to get an iPhone 4.
