Final Fantasy Creator Hironobu Sakaguchi "Working on a Project for iPhone"

It's nothing more than a quartet of lines in a 2010 Happy New Year Note, but it signals that yet another high profile game designer -- in this case Final Fantasy's Hironobu Sakaguchi -- has iPhone on his mind:

Oh, by the way, We are also working on a project for iPhone.
This should be released soon as well.
We will put our efforts together and do our best!
I'm sure you'll Love it.

Will it be Final Fantasy for iPhone? A version of his "long-awaited new blockbuster"? Something new entirely? Let us know if you have any ideas, but our excitement over another year of iPhone gaming is already going into overdrive.

TiPb at CES 2010!

TiPb at CES 2010!

That's right TiPb 'verse, for the first time ever I'm hitting CES with the rest of the Smartphone Experts crew -- because for the first time ever, Apple's not at Macworld, Macworld isn't in January, and iPhone stuff will be at CES!

If you're going to be there as well, if you're an App Store developer, an accessory maker, a fellow blogger, an Apple engineer with a secret HD iPhone or tablet-esque device to leak, or -- and especially -- a fellow TiPb member, ping me and let me know. I'm looking to fit in as much as is inhumanly possible.

All major iPhone and related stories will of course go up right here, and as you know there are a ton of ways to follow TiPb's feed.

Best of Smartphone Experts, 3 Jan 2010

Best of Smartphone Experts, 3 Jan 2010

Last week was a good one as usual for SPE, but next week we'll be blowing the walls out for CES: expect plenty of CES coverage from all of our sites. This year we'll have our biggest team ever at the show and are pumped up. All that CES coverage means we'll be taking the week off from the Smartphone Round Robin (excepting another group podcast on The Cell Phone Junkie, stay tuned!).

Arment, Siracusa Weigh in on Apple iTablet

Previously we linked to Daring Fireball's John Gruber, who felt Apple was going redefine the personal computer with their (perhaps) upcoming iTablet/iSlate, and now Marco Arment of Tumblr and Instapaper, and John Siracusa of Ars Technica share their thoughts as well.

Android Motorola Droid and HTC Hero Review from an iPhone Perspective -- Smartphone Round Robin

Android Motorola Droid and HTC Hero Review from an iPhone Perspective -- Smartphone Round Robin

Google's Android was last year's "new thing", and while Palm's webOS takes that place this year, Android Central brings us their second generation hardware with the likes of the HTC Hero, and the 2.0 version of its OS with the Motorola Droid. That Google enjoys massive tech-geek cachet while at the same time maturing into two such different (potentially fractured?) sets of hardware and software, while being the cloud company and yet not enjoying the most cloud-centric OS in the 2009 Smartphone Round Robin are what make it potentially the most interesting platform this year.

To help me figure it all out, Casey Chan went over the finer points for me and the Android Central Forum members provided tons of great feedback. Thanks to all the 'droidekas!

(And just a reminder, every day you post on my Android Central thread, or any of the official Round Robin threads, is another day you're entered to win one of six (6!) new smartphones!)

Okay, time to get Androidy with it... after the break!

Was the iPhone the Gadget of the Decade?

Was the iPhone the Gadget of the Decade?

It wouldn't be polite for TiPb to proclaim our signature device, Apple's iPhone, the gadget of the decade -- but luckily we don't have to as it's one of the more common memes circulating the 'net as we pass from the 00's to the 10's.

Sure, the Treo smartphone came first, as did Apple's original iPod, but arguably no device converged so many technologies of the last decade so elegantly, or coalesced more of Apple's own strategies, as the iPhone. If the 2000s were about going from portable to mobile, then the iPhone certainly made the mobile mainstream.

Mosspuppet Rumor Madness: iTablet to be iPhone's "Foleo" with Permanent 3G Tether?

Mosspuppet Rumor Madness: iTablet to be iPhone's "Foleo" with Permanent 3G Tether?

Mosspuppet passed along a rumor that says Apple is not going to provide 3G radio for the iTablet/iSlate, but rather make it automagically, and persistently tethered to an iPhone, harkening back to Palm's legendary Foleo device -- that never shipped.

Sure, Mosspuppet is a... well, a puppet, and likely only has access to the plush version of Apple's upcoming tablet, but the humor to this rumor has us thinking -- it's totally the kind of crazy, maddening move that would drive consumers out of their minds and get the tech press shouting "why?!" from every post.

And AT&T would love it, given how they haven
