The Official Google Phone, Nexus One

  Most of us have seen this phone already for the past week, and especially when Engadget got its hands on the phone today.  The Nexus One does not differ much from other form factors of Android equipped phones we have seen up to this point.  While there is no HTC mark on it, the phone appears to be from HTC and matches the form factor and build quality of their other handsets.  The hardware remains a mystery as to the exact specs, but the Android 2.1 equipped Nexus One adds some tasty treats to the OS itself.  The app tray now benefits from 3D elements while there is a new added "Grid view" that allows you to see all home screen elements at once.  You also get more home screens for your shortcuts and widgets.

Apple Updates iPhone 3.0 For Developers


  Most of us know that iPhone 3.0 came out a couple of weeks ago for devlopers and now Apple has released a new build for developers.  There have been a lot of different issues reported about the first 3.0 build and Apple has seemingly fixed quite a few of those issues.  I for one have had an issue with it no longer working with the dock connector in my car on a Pioneer stereo you can find in our review section.  The problem has been very intermittant and works about 1 out of 15 times.  No word yet on if this new build fixes this problem, but it does address a number of issues including, search,copy and paste, tethering support, in-app purchases, push notifications and many more enhancements for developers.  There is still no release date for the public, but if you have developer access, get your new build now.

Casio Releasing 1000FPS Digital Cameras


  Casio is releasing two new 9 megapixel cameras with the ability to record 720p video at 1000 frames per second.  The EX-FC100 (5x optical Zoom) and EX-FS100 (3x Optical Zoom) will allow us to make extremely slow motion videos such as the show "Time Warp" (only slightly slower) and give us high def video to boot.  It sounds like Casio is trying to one-up the competition with features found on more high-end devices.  There is no word on price or release date yet, but if reasonable, these could be a great pocket recording device with some nice features, assuming the CCD or CMOS sensor performs well.
