Calley Nye further hypothesizes on a rumour circulating around that Apple will soon be releasing a red iPhone 3G model just in time for the holidays.

“The red iPhone will presumably be sold as part of the (PRODUCT) RED campaign , a charitable organization that donates money to the Global Fund to fight AIDS in Africa. Apple has released several products for this campaign previously, including (PRODUCT) RED iTunes gift cards, a red 8GB iPod Nano, and a red 1GB iPod Shuffle.”

Andrew Nusca follows talk where MSI may be working with LG to build a netbook.

“DigiTimes is reporting that LG is hoping to solicit MSI’s services in order to build its own X110 netbook. The mini laptop is said to boast an 8.9-inch panel, 120GB hard drive, 2GB of RAM and Windows XP under the hood – with a price between $625 and $790, with the intention to focus ‘design and material quality’ rather than a bargain-basement price tag.”
