Sony, Imax and Discovery Communications are equal partners in the venture, which is designed to drive ‘consumer adoption of 3D televisions.’”

Gavin Clarke recaps Microsoft’s plans for its Azure cloud services.

“Microsoft plans to start fully charging customers for use of its planned Azure cloud until the spring, it seems. The Windows Azure platform team has said it will be April when Microsoft starts charging for the components that comprise Azure’s AppFabric – the Service Bus that connects applications and services, and the Access Control system for federated log in by users. ‘SLAs will take effect when charges begin to accrue in April, 2010,’ the Azure platform team wrote .”

Google Android Nexus One – Is it a threat to the iPhone?

Adrian Kingsley-Hughes shares his thoughts on Google’s Android Nexus One device, versus Apple’s iPhone.

“So, is it (Nexus One) a threat to the iPhone? In a word, no. The two handsets seem to be aimed at different markets. The iPhone is aimed at the stylish, probably more flamboyant content consumer, while the Nexus One is, well, not. Being an Android-based handset it’s tempting to say that it’s aimed at a geekier audience, but given Google’s involvement I’m hesitant to say that. Sure, there’s a geeky element to it, but all that Google integration makes it a handset aimed at consumers of Google content.”
