09/26/2009, Apple and Palm have been playing a rather intriguing game of cat and mouse with iTunes and the Pre.

09/25/2009, The Philips Xenium K700 does look quite good in the image here, and just like other Philips handsets, this one too will boast long talk times of up to 8.5 hours on a single charge and one month on standy.

09/25/2009, AT&T will be rolling out MMS support for the iPhone this morning, giving the whole gamut of iPhone owners (save for first generation iPhones) the ability to send pictures that capture the essence of the moment over to a friend or relative elsewhere, which is pretty much a long time in waiting considering just how other phones have long supported MMS before this.
