Verizon also has an announcement Monday: 'Lets get social'

5

As if we needed more confirmation that on Monday, Microsoft is set to unveil their Project Pink phones (Turtle and Pure) which will be sold in partnership with Verizon, we have this little nugget seen above.

The language and timing is more than obvious: "It's time to share" and "Lets get social" are right from Microsoft's own invite and it sure is a coincidence that it's the same day as Redmond's big reveal.

At least we now know that it is a Verizon exclusive, at least for some time. The only real interesting thing here is we guess those detailed rumors saying that Project Pink was beyond dead and terrible mismanaged were...a bit off? [Berry Scoop via Android Central]

Windows Phone Virus making the rounds?

6

There is a virus/trojan horse problem making it's rounds that is effecting several Windows Phone users. The virus came to light over at XDA Developers Forums when several affected users noticed their Windows Phones dialing international phone numbers spontaneously in the middle of the night. 

In discussing this phenomena, one commonality was discovered and the likely culprit is a game titled "3D Anti-Terrorist".  The .cab file not only loads the game onto your phone but also loads a trojan file on to your Windows Phone is time triggered to dial certain international numbers monthly.

If you've downloaded "3D Anti-Terrorist" you may want to check your call history for any mysterious calls happening in the middle of the night. If you think your phone may be affected by this, the solutions offered over on XDA range from a hard reset to deleting certain files. The hard reset option seems to be having the most success.

If more develops on this, we'll pass it on.

Review: Plantronics BackBeat 903 Bluetooth Stereo Headset

13

The first time I saw Plantronics’ BackBeat 903 headphones was at CES in Las Vegas in January 2009. As the PR Rep showed me the various features and described the functionality I began to violate the 10th commandment (“Thou shalt not covet…”). To see why, keep reading.

 

Pros: 
Comfortable. Good Sound Quality. OpenMic is brilliant.
Cons: 
Some of the hardware controls are challenging.

Hulu now working on Skyfire? Indeed it is! (Or rather, it was)

12

Okay you TV watching fanatics, while Hulu may have lost The Daily Show/Colbert Report recnetly, it looks like somehow they are now allowing the Skyfire browser to stream videos.

Or perhaps it is vice-versa, we'll probably never know. (See Skyfire's earlier explanation to the community).

Either way, if you load up the latest version of Skyfire and head to hulu.com, you can now stream your heart away. We just tried it ourselves and we can confirm 100% (see above screens shot).

So there, you folks happy yet?

Update: And thou taketh away. Looks like it was just an error on Hulu's part as mobile streaming, once again, is dead in the water. Such teases. Thanks to everyone for sending this in.

iPhone 4.0 borrows multitasking from Windows Phone 7, upps Exchange

66

Spent the afternoon checking out the iPhone 4.0 announcement at TiBP.com, and a few upgrades have been, erm, "borrowed" from Windows Phone 7, it appears. Basically, the iPhone's new multitasking works in much the same way, saving an app's state before hopping out of it and into another one. Hardly revolutionary, Apple.

One thing we are a little jealous of, however, is the ability to sync with multiple Exchange accounts. That's something Windows Mobile never managed to so, and Palm finally managed to do it with the Pre. So there's one with have to give to Cupertino. There's also improved enterprise (read: business) support. We'd expect Microsoft to be on the forefront of that, too, with Windows Phone 7, given that depth of Exchange in business. So, no biggie there.

All in all, an interesting show, but nothing to make us really worry about Windows Phone 7 being dead before it gets off the ground.

Update: Oh, and how did we forget this: Folders?!?!? Really, Apple? That's so Windows Mobile 5. And "intelligent naming"? What does that even mean?

HTC selling T-Mobile HD2 for $99 flat (2 year contract)

18

For those still on the fence about the HD2 (we imagine Hulu would look great on that screen), HTC Shop America, their direct sale store, is pimping the phone directly with a T-Mobile plan for $99. No rebate, no waiting.

Rumor also has it that this deal may not last, but who knows with these things (that 35 percent Bing cashback is still available as is the Wirefly deal). And considering how often T-Mobile is running out of stock/replacing stock on this device, we take it to mean it's selling quite well.  Go here to get started.

Skin Firefox to look like Windows Phone 7 too

2

If you already skinned your Windows desktop to look like Metro using Rainmeter, might as well complete the look and skin Firefox now too.

Although 'Metro 1.0' adds a little WP7 flare to your browser, don't expect anything drastic as skinning is sort of minimal. Still, it adds that little extra touch to the whole Metro themed PC and it's free, so why not?

We suppose copying is the highest form of flattery, so seeing as many in the design world want to emulate Metro's look is a good thing (remember all the iPhone skins years ago?).

Now if we can just get a skin for Chrome...

Microsoft has a big announcement on April 12th -- Our bet? Pink phones

10

So evidently Microsoft has sent out invites for a big announcement on April 12th in San Francisco. What is it revealing that day? Courier? Natal? Project Pink? More Windows Phone 7 information?

Not much is known outside of the theme "It's Time to Share," a green motif and some younger folks featured. Actually, if we had to bet we'd go with those 'Project Pink' phones Turtle and Pure.

Reasoning?

Although it would be amazingly awesome if Microsoft were to drop the Courier, even a teaser, so soon after the iPad (btw, played with one today, not impressed), alas we'll have to settle for these high-end feature phones which will probably not be on your carrier.

More info as it comes in ...

Review: HTC Audio Cable

Review: HTC Audio Cable

As much as HTC has been esteemed over the years for the innovation and consistent excellence in their products, there have been a few bumps in their road to becoming one of the top hardware manufacturers in the mobile space. The one standard in HTC’s diverse designs over the years has traditionally been the presence of the ExtUSB port and the absence of a 3.5mm headphone jack.

Numerous methods of working around this limitation have been detailed over the years. Bluetooth Headphones are one option; though HTC themselves offer several options that are typically less expensive. HTC’s Multifunction Audio Adapter offers an assortment of connectivity options while the HTC Stereo Headphones may be used for both music and phone calls. A third option from HTC is their Audio cable, which features a male 3.5mm audio plug, which is perfect for playing audio from your HTC phone through a home or car stereo.

The full review is after the jump.

 

Pros: 
Simple way to output your music
Cons: 
Pricey. Not the best option for headphones.
