Best of SPE, 26 April 2009

We're pretty sure that if you're reading this, you're the sort who likes exclusive, breaking details on Smartphones. We had that aplenty this week. Nokia Experts got the full skinny on the AT&T Nokia E71x in the form of PDF guides and a confirmation of a May 4th release. PreCentral.net scored an internal head-to-head between the iPhone and the Palm Pre. CrackBerry.com saw yet another Storm OS leak.

We're also pretty sure you like free stuff. So you'll want to check out the What Would You Do for a Palm Pre Giveaway. We're also incredibly proud that CrackBerry.com reached - wait for it - One Million Members! They'll be tossing out celebratory gifts to them this week. WMExperts will be giving away a phone (check there on Monday). Also, did you know that The iPhone Blog is approaching their 1 year anniversary in a couple weeks? Expect some fun to happen there soon, too!

Much more more happened in the smartphone world, so as usual, we bring you our "Best of SPE roundup." Come take a look at what's news!

World of Warcraft Coming to the iPhone?

World of Warcraft Coming to the iPhone?

Confession: World of Warcraft came on the scene a little late to fireball my demographic center. Sure, I saw that William Shatner is a Shaman and Ozzy's got a new Prince of Darkness to worry about, but other than hearing friends were going to try it and then... never seeing them again, I've just filed it away in the same drawer as Ultimate Online and Everquest... until I saw Touch Arcade's story today.

Bluetooth 3.0 Standard Announced - in Time for iPhone 3.0?

We mentioned Bluetooth 3.0 before, and now it looks like the spec is getting a tad more specified. WMExperts has the story covered but suffice it to say it's stronger, better, faster, longer. (Or at least it borrows 802.11 WiFi power when it needs to be).

Friday Fun Video: Palm Pre Fans Dreaming in 1960s Technicolor

Springtime, when videos turn their attention towards impending gadgets that are other than the iPhone. Samsung Instinct, BlackBerry Storm, Nokia... what was it again? This time it's the Palm Pre, with interactions lifted from the iPhone and a faux-Scottish accent taken from Scrooge McDuck, and it's dreaming of taking out the iPhone with a little 1960's Adam West Batman ZAP!
