This Week in Smartphone Schadenfreude, April 12th Edition

Not evil twin to Phone Different Week in Review, not an invasion by Fake Steve, This Week in Smart Phone Schadenfreude brings you all the feel-better news you need about the smartphone world outside Apple's current media dominator. (Who knew there was such a world? We were just as surprised! Inelegant, interface challenged, keyboardy, crashy, single-touchy place -- best not to linger...). Join us as we mock review the big news from last week at our sister sites. Everybody loves sibling rivalry!

Every week I will be bringing you what I think are the week’s biggest stories and articles. Here we go!

iPhone in 60-days flip-flop

What I consider one of the biggest sotries of the week Was Walt Mossberg letting slip that the 3G iPhone would be out in “60 days” will it come to pass?

Ways to extend .Mac… to iPhone?

I am really excited for this one. I want to have the .Mac experience on my iPhone… you know, useful things like iDisk and Back to my Mac… but will it happen?

The PS3 Connection: NetBlender Releases SDK

Originally taken as a simple iPhone multimedia remote for controlling your Sony Playstation 3, NetBlender has now open the doors to a full blown SDK! Not to be confused with Apple's iPhone SDK, the BD Touch SDK from NetBlender would not only allow for iPhone/iPod Touch control of a networked Blu-Ray player (a la PS3), but bi-drectional connectivity (in ur iPhone beaming digital copiez?), transfer of movie collection data, and the display of blu-ray "extras" directly on the iPhone, etc.

Denny Breitenfeld, CTO of NetBlender, tells Gizmodo:

AT&T To Pro-Rate Cancellation Fees - Wait-a-Thon

AT&T is doing the right thing (never mind that this most was likely something that they were forced into). Namely, they're going to pro-rate the cancellation fee that you have to pay if you leave your 1 or 2 year plan early:

iPhone 2.0: Stereo Bluetooth, GPS, Printers, YouTube, and... Bricking?!

The deep dig into the latest iPhone 2.0 firmware beta 3 continues, with iPhoneBuzz reporting that they've found strings and/or references to A2DP stereo bluetooth support, bluetooth remote control, GPS (internal or external via BT not determinable yet), something to do with printers, Google 411 for Maps, as well as previously rumored YouTube plugin for MobileSafari Touch, the Infineon 3G chipset, and the apparent removal of the previous Nike + Sports references.

p align="center">

Ars Technica brings word that Australia may just be giving Singapore, the Netherlands, and Mexico a run for their international money in the great race towards the 7th official iPhone launch.

If rumors are to be believed, resellers have been told to say g'day to an UNLOCKED 3G iPhone down-under come the end of June. This would bring our current score to:

2.0 Beta 3: Bring the Search!

2.0 Beta 3: Bring the Search!

OMG!!11 Contactz search FTW!!11

So says Engadget, continuing the excellent 2.0 Beta 3 coverage. Turns out that magnifying glass that was spotted way back when actually does something now, and that something isn't Exchange server queries as some (no names... ok, it was Dieter!) feared, but full-on contact search.

And if that isn't enough, there a new "inbox" style icon on the calendar screen which shows incoming meeting/event requests with the same red circled goodness as new MobileMail or SMS messages.

Check out the full post for screen caps!

iPhone SDK Beta: Take 3

After waking up on Tuesday to face the dreaded Blue-- er... Pink-Screen-of-Death (?!) that signaled the expiry of the 2nd beta release for the iPhone SDK, would-be-developers managed not to go to bed angry as Apple kissed and made-up in the form of SDK Beta 3.

Erica Sadun over on TUAW reports that the latest/greatest weighs in at 1.4GB, or just three-quarters the size of the original beta, with the matching firmware at under 200MB according to a commenter.

Mossberg Smash Puny 3G Rumors!

After "Uncle" Walt Mossberg teased the interwebs wild with an offhand remark about the iPhone 3G coming within 60 days, Silicon Valley Insider caught up with the Wallstreet Journal's very own Mac Daddy to find out just when we'd be getting that next gen release. Walt's answer: He has no idea.

"If I knew when this date was, why would I announce it in the middle of a sentence at the Finnish embassy, rather than report it in the Wall Street Journal?"

Moreover, Walt doesn't care.

Send in the iClones: Nokia "Tube" Edition

Send in the iClones: Nokia "Tube" Edition

When the iPhone was introduced, Nokia's first official response was the corporate equivalent of a raspberry (the spitting kind, not the fruit!). Their second official response was to demo a device which so closely mimicked the iPhone that it quite possibly was one.

"If there is something good in the world then we copy with pride," said Anssi Vanjoki, Nokia's Executive VP & General Manager of Multimedia.

Well, proudly copy it they have! The final device, bewilderingly code-named "Tube" is ready for prime-time (or whatever time it is they relegate programs that knock off last season's hits).
