Facebook for Windows Mobile 6 Video
Facebook now, officially, knows everything about you and plans to know much, much more. But at least all your data will look super pretty. Plus, phones for girls, and iPhone 5 coming soon!
Facebook's official Android app is clunky and basic compared with Facebook on other mobile phones.
On today's show, a whole collection of Apple rumors: iPhone 5 with a keyboard? That's just crazy talk. Almost as crazy as letting Apple take a 30% cut of your magazine or newspaper subscription costs by "taking advantage" of their new subscription store. Plus, Facebook is officially the entire Internet, as it gets both dedicated phone buttons and a Facebook SIM card. Plus, the U.S. finally commits to the Internet, Netflix finally arrives on Boxee, and we finally get a Plants vs. Zombies board game. I know you were waiting. --Molly
Here's the newest of the Windows Mobile phones. We appreciate all the usual functions, but the bulky shape makes it too heavy and not very appealing.
Turns out, according to some developers, that the only way to get your hands on a prereleased iPad is to build it a special sealed bunker of its very own, with darkened windows and a chain so it can't get up and walk away on you. People, we are NOT making this up. Also, we dish the dish on Viacom vs. YouTube; get a good, long look at Windows Phone 7; and yeah, Molly's mad about the Android 2.1 delay. No surprise.
Apple's WWDC announcement could signal the iPhone 5 is coming later this fall. Facebook's movie model is working, mobile phone payments will be the new black, and Symbian phones will be discontinued in 2010...*tear*. Plus, thanks to the Oxford English Dictionary "muffin top" will live forever.
If you have an iPhone and just have to keep up with your Facebook account, this is an application you may want to look into.
This week we are sans Nicole, but for a very good reason: She became an official U.S. citizen today! Frankly, there hasn't been a ton of cell phone news over the past few days, but we know it's just the calm before the storm. The storm being CTIA Spring 2010. Still, Kent, Jason, and I find plenty to talk about, including our wishes for the iPhone 4G and ways Android beats the iPhone right now. Plus, we take a tour of Sony Ericsson's new user experience platform and try to answer more of your Windows Phone 7 Series questions. You can find it all here on Dialed In Episode 118.
