Microsoft held a mock funeral to show off their confidence in its’ new line of phones which are schedule to arrive in the early part of October 2010. First they air a commercial stating the start of a revolution is coming and now they are going to bury the iPhone. We sure hope they can live up to the hype they are espousing.

Here is a quick update about the timing...
3 Sept 2010
Pre-orders for the 1200 first members of the forum (yes, 1200)
20 Sept 2010
120 first production units (for final check) - at least two units will start new world tours
All the other units are for partners from around the world. They will be able to test the final hardware and software to take a decision. A couple of units will also go to a couple of journalists and bloggers.
31 Sept 2010
Start shipping pre-orders.
EXOPC starts taking orders from the developers only
Ciara Vibe available in Canada - exact date not official, probably around the 15th of October
Also available from the US (online only) until a US partner starts shipping.
With only a seven inch screen this will be difficult to use for any extended period of time. However at the price point of $149.00 this may be a solution for some. It is less than the iPad and the ExoPC is projected to be. However this device is still an Android solution which once again makes install programs like it is a computer not possible. This unit is packed with 2 GB of storage, 256 MB of Ram, and a Micro Secure Digital slot which it can be up to 16 GB. This being said some of you may only need you Google docs and Gmail. If so find your nearest Kmart and call to see if they have any on hand.
Just so you can not say that the only tablet we are talking about is the ExoPC, which we think will be better then this one, we are posting this article from engadget. It seems to be a good looking tablet but is coming with the Android OS. Which means it will be limited on the software that you can install. At least it will be released in the not too distant future which is good. Read more about this tablet here.
Little did you know that if you were one of the people that jail broke your iPhone Apple wanted the right to sue you for doing so. This historical win for the EFF grants the right to the user of any smartphone to make use of the software as you see fit, including bypassing any protections put into place by the manufacturer. These were previously protected under the Digital Millennium Copyright Act, but are now firmly in the “fair-use” category. However this change does not protect the rights of the people or companies that write the jail broken software. To read the full article click the picture below.
