NEWS: Sony Ericsson, AT&T announce the X10, available Aug. 15 for $149.99
And sure enough, the Sony Ericsson Xperia X10 is on its way to AT&T. ...
The 4-inch phone is bringing its custom Android experience to the U.S.
on Aug. 15, complete with 8-megapixel camera, LED flash, 8GB of on-board
memory, 2GB microSD card, and the Timescape and Mediascape UIs.
The X10 will cost $149.99 after two-year contract and rebate.
Off-contract pricing wasn't initially announced.
Also not announced was what version of Android will be on board at
launch, though we have to assume it'll be the same Android 1.6 that
we've previously seen, and hope that it'll be upgraded later this year.
NEWS: Consumer Reports iPhone Slam, Boon for Droid X Debut
Motorola's Droid X goes on sale Thursday, and it couldn't have planned a
better week to debut the iPhone 4 alternative. Anti-iPhone 4 rhetoric is
growing in volume. There is the Consumer Reports slam on Apple's iPhone
4, a judge that just granted a lawsuit against Apple and AT&T class
action status, and consumer sentiment that Apple is in faulty-antenna
Call it a perfect storm of anti iPhone 4 propaganda, but it could lay
the groundwork for one of the most successful Android phone launches
yet. After all, the Droid X is a pretty impressive phone in its own
right - iPhone flubs or not.
NEWS: Apple takes down forum threads about negative Consumer Reports iPhone 4 review
Threads on the Apple support forum about the iPhone 4 are mysteriously
disappearing. Perhaps it has just a little to do with the fact that
Consumer Reports made it clear in their July 12 report that "Apple needs
to come up with a permanent—and free—fix for the antenna problem before
we can recommend the iPhone 4."
Is Apple doing the right thing here if they are wiping the forums clean
when it comes to talk about Consumer Reports not so favorable review?
A negative news story and Apple starts removing comments instead of
addressing them? That's bad business for already frustrated iPhone
If you tried to access the forums, it's clear that moderators took the

NEWS: Apple Calls iPhone 4 Press Conference for This Friday
It looks like the iPhone 4 "death grip" drama is coming to a head: News
broke this afternoon that Apple will be holding a press conference this
Friday to discuss the iPhone 4.
In typical Apple fashion, the company didn't give too much detail about
what would be discussed at Friday's press conference, except that it
would be about Apple's flagship smartphone, but given the press coverage
surrounding the so-called "death grip," there's more than a good chance
that Apple will be tackling this issue head-on.
Needless to say, it's hard to tell as yet what will come out of this
press conference. Earlier this week, Consumer Reports said that it
couldn't recommend the iPhone, despite the fact that it took the top
spot in its rankings. Some see a recall as "inevitable, while others
have suggested that Apple should give away free Bumper cases to iPhone 4
owners instead. Meanwhile, others have experienced glitches with the
iPhone 4 proximity sensor.
NEWS: Apple Engineer Told Jobs IPhone Antenna Might Cut Calls
Apple Inc.’s senior antenna expert voiced concern to Chief Executive
Officer Steve Jobs in the early design phase of the iPhone 4 that the
antenna design could lead to dropped calls, a person familiar with the
Last year, Ruben Caballero, a senior engineer and antenna expert,
informed Apple’s management the device’s design may hurt reception, said
the person, who is not authorized to speak on Apple’s behalf and asked
not to be identified. A carrier partner also raised concerns about the
antenna before the device’s June 24 release, according to another person
familiar with the situation.
Steve Dowling, a spokesman for Apple, declined to comment and said he
wouldn’t make Caballero available for an interview. Caballero didn’t
respond to a call and an e-mail seeking comment.
