What's Apple.com/iChatMobile for? iPhone? iTablet? More iUnicorns?

No sooner did iSlate.com surface than 9to5mac has noted that http://apple.com/ichatmobile doesn't return a "page not found" error, but rather redirects to Apple's iChat for Mac OS X.

Google Android HTC Hero, Motorola Droid Hands-on Video -- Smartphone Round Robin

Google Android HTC Hero, Motorola Droid Hands-on Video -- Smartphone Round Robin

Week 3 the 2009 Smartphone Round Robin serves me up on a princess-splattered platter for Google's Android platform with the equally pretty HTC Hero and the red-eyed macho-mech, Motorola's DROID.

Our ace Android Central expert, the generally non-grievous Casey Chan is helping me out in the video below the fold, and I've also headed over to AC's cantina to mind-trick me some answers.

Remember, every day you post on my Android Central Forums thread, you're entered for a chance to win the Android of your choice. (And there's a total of 6 smartphones up for grabs -- one per SPE site -- so check them all out!)

And since turn-about is fair play, the aforementioned Casey has returned from the Dark Droid Side to once again wield the iPhone, and you can now be his Yodas in the TiPb Forums! (And win an iPhone 3GS!)

Now brace yourselves for the jump to lightspeed (and a week of poor Star Wars puns!) because Casey's about to show me everything new and hopeful about Hero's Sense UI and Droid's Android 2.0!

iPod touch Sales Soar this Holiday Season

iPod touch Sales Soar this Holiday Season

According to the mobile App analytics firm, Flurry, not only has the App Store seen a record-breaking month, December nearly doubling sales from November, this holiday season has seen iPod touch sales skyrocket as well.

Since November iPhone users have downloaded the most apps from the App Store, that is until Christmas day as iPod touch app downloads eclipsed those of the iPhone by 172%. And if you think that sounds impressive, downloads from Apple's third-generation iPod touch jumped up nearly 900% on Christmas Day alone.

All of this data would indicate that the iPod touch was quite a hot seller this holiday season. How many of our readers gifted or received their own iPod touch this Christmas?

Quick App: ZumoDrive Cloud Storage for iPhone

For those of us looking for an iDisk alternative, Zester has come out with the ZumoDrive. The ZumoDrive is a free service (up to 2GB, you can purchase more) that allows you to store and sync files to the cloud just like Apple's iDisk. The app has three main sections: Files, Music and Photos.

This is how it works: You install the Zumo client on your PC or Mac. Once installed it can automatically look for your music and photo libraries. You can also add your own files and folders to sync too.

Want to Take an iPhone, iPod touch, or Any Gadget on a Flight Into the US? Here's What You Need to Know!

In the wake of the latest act of terrorism attempted on a US airplane, the TSA has enacted what appear to be deliberately unpredictable new security measures that seem to include a complete ban on the use of electronics like the iPhone or iPod touch, and even the use of the bathroom for the last hour of any plane trip in-bound to the US.

Regarding the iPhone in NYC -- AT&T "Periodically Modifies Promotions and Distribution Channels".

So the internets are exploding thanks to a Consumerist article that involved not being able to order an iPhone in New York City via AT&T's website.

AT&T has apparently found a workable solution to the reported data congestion in New York City. They've quietly stopped selling the iPhone to customers in the New York metropolitan area, at least from their web site.

MobileMe Having Post-Christmas Blues -- WebApp, iChat, Prefs Down, Down, Down!

According to MobileMe System Status, Mac Preferences, Windows Control Panel, iChat, and the www.me.com WebApps are down for the count. (Just how hard did they hit the eggnog over the last few days?)

Still, they're keeping some pretense of holiday spirit, or irony:

All other MobileMe services are online and fully operational

Let us know how badly you're affected, and when things start going smoothly for you again.

GV Mobile 2.0 for iPhone Coming Soon to Cydia

Boy Genius scored a sneak peak of a Google Voice client, GV Mobile 2.0, which will be available in the near future on Cydia to anyone with a jailbroken iPhone. GV Mobile is an application which allows your iPhone to use all of the features that comes with Google Voice and was actually in the App Store for a short period before Apple decided to yank it along with rejecting Google's very own application. After being pulled, the developer introduced GV Mobile to Cydia and offered up his hard work to anyone with a jailbroken iPhone.

Quick App: Night of the Living Dead (N.O.T.L.D.)

We are very aware that this application may not be for all of our readers, but for those of you who are horror movie fanatics, N.O.T.L.D. [iTunes Link - $.99] is an app for you. Never again will you have to leave your home without your very own copy of George Romero's 1968 'zombie' classic, Night of the Living Dead.

This app includes the original and alternate movie posters, a streaming version of the movie which is broken down in chapters (streams perfectly fine on AT&T's 3G data network), and an wiki page detailing anything you'd like to know about this classic films history.

iPhone Review from WMExperts’ Phil -- Smartphone Round Robin

iPhone Review from WMExperts’ Phil -- Smartphone Round Robin

I'm an iPhone. Phil's a Windows Phone. Typically the jokes about creaky old, stylus and resistive bound, UI impaired smartphones of generations past would start there, but for this year's Smartphone Round Robin Phil's strapped with the HTC HD2 and not only are we unable to poke fun -- we're afraid to. But now that he's armed with the Windows Phone equivalent of an ICBM, how will he treat our iPhone?
