The next version of Microsoft’s Windows Phone

Microsoft reveals WinPhone 7 ‘Mango’ details
The Register
Gavin Clarke provides details about the next version of Microsoft’s Windows Phone.

“Microsoft on Wednesday unveiled changes in the version of Windows Phone codenamed Mango that will crack open the operating system so devs can finally work with smart-phones’ camera data, compass and gyro, pivot and panorama, geo-location, ringtones and users’ contacts. The operating system, meanwhile, has been optimized to make applications run fast, gobble less memory and delivery ‘buttery smooth’ scrolling. Execs unveiled the plans during Microsoft’s MIX conference in Los Vegas, Nevada.”

HP rolls out EliteBook 8460w, 8560w and 8760w laptops for the business-minded
Donald Melanson writes about new business laptops from HP.

“It’s still not saying anything about the lightweight EliteBook 2560p and 2760p models that leaked out last month, but HP has now gotten official with three new slightly less portable laptops: the 14-inch EliteBook 8460w, 15.6-inch 8560w and 17.3-inch 8760w. The latter is expectedly on the top end when it comes to specs, with it boasting your choice of Sandy Bridge processors up to a Core i7-2920XM, either AMD FirePro or NVIDIA Quadro graphics with up to 4GB of memory, and up to three hard drives with RAID 5 support. The other two EliteBooks each dial things down a bit across the board, but you can still get up to a Core i7-2820QM on each of them, and there’s not even an option for integrated graphic.”

Sarah Perez writes about HP’s webOS 3.0.

“Rearranging apps: press and hold now launches an ‘edit mode’ where apps can be moved, deleted, or removed from a customized launcher page. Press ‘done’ to complete the process. Just Type: webOS’s universal search feature is now tabbed, like the launcher, and muted gray in appearance. Recent searches and the virtual keyboard appear when you tap the search bar.”
