…The Gphone will wait?

Android

Google has finally released details about their phone plans, and despite rumors, it’s not going to be a Gphone.

Instead, Google announced the creation of the Open Handset Alliance, and specifically Android, “the first truly open and comprehensive platform for mobile devices. It includes an operating system, user-interface and applications — all of the software to run a mobile phone, but without the proprietary obstacles that have hindered mobile innovation.”

While it’s not an iPhone killer that most had hoped for, it does present some interesting opportunities for the mobile world, so stay tuned to see what they do with it.

…Leopard is coming?

Apple Leopard

The date has finally been finalized; On Friday, October 26, 2007, Apple will release Leopard, its latest operating system, to hoards of screaming Apple fanboys.

Ok, so it might not be that dramatic, but considering how long it’s been since their last release, a new OS is kind of a big deal. Plus, as Vista continues to flounder, it’s time once again for Apple to one up the ‘Soft boys.

Looking to get in on the action? Amazon has a pre-order deal going on right now, and you can save $20 if you’re willing to wait a few days for shipping.

Check out Apple’s site for a list of the over 300 new features that Leopard is bringing, and prepare to be upgraded.
