Read MobilityToday's review of the Treo 500v. I think they sum up the device nicely (My Overall impressions of the Treo 500v are its a good smartphone but far from revolutionary, its very similar in form and function to the Dash with the added benefit of 3G and a much better keyboard for one handed typing.)
iPhone users can rejoice as hackers have discovered a way to unbrick iPhones that upgraded to the new firmware and even better the iPhone Sim Free developers are also working on software that will unlock iPhones on updated to the new firmware. (Yesterday we reported how to unbrick an unlocked iPhone. Today we have discovered that you can send and receive calls, SMS and mails too, as well as surf the Web with it. You just have to use a TurboSIM card (like I did) and, according to the iPhone Sim Free people, any restored iPhone with their paid software installed (we have been unable to test this.) [Original article: Sunday September 30 11:56AM. Updated Monday October 3:26AM: it calls with iPhone Sim Free unlock too. Check the details after the jump])
I see Danger introduced a number of Sidekick devices yesterday. (Capping off months of rumor and speculation, T-Mobile and Danger have announced two new Sidekicks today targeting decidedly different segments of the market. The Sidekick LX takes over as the new king of the Hiptop hill, boasting a Sidekick-first wide QVGA display -- touted as incorporating technology borrowed from Sharp's AQUOS televisions, no less -- along with configurable mood lighting, 1.3 megapixel camera with flash, and 128MB worth of bundled microSD memory. Meanwhile, the 4.6 x 2.4 x 0.68-inch Sidekick Slide becomes the first Hiptop device to come from Motorola, the first to ditch the trademark swivel display, and the first to go on a serious diet (anyone who's used a Sidekick of old knows that it ain't exactly small) while still packing the same functionality and 1.3 megapixel cam as its big sib.) Engadget has more details for you.
The "iPhone Dev Team" have issued a statement in counterpart to yesterday's statement from Apple advising people that unlocking will void warranty. (Based on download numbers, the iPhone Dev Team believes that, worldwide, several hundred thousand people have unlocked their iPhones. That number continues growing every day. The removal of the lock, a bug, was a major step forward in the iPhone development. It made the iPhone free and useful to anyone, not only to those in certain countries.) TUAW have posted the statement.
