  • The Philips D908 is a Windows phone for China. The handset will be distributed by China Telecom and come equipped with 3.2-inch WVGA display, 5-megapixel camera, 1GB RAM, Wi-Fi and GPS.

  • Facebook Contact Sync for Android devices has been released. This is a small application that permits linking of your phone contacts to the information available via your Facebook account. We have already tested the program on the T-Mobile G1 and ended up with a phone book enriched with relevant pictures, but lacking status updates (contrary to what the developer claims in the description of the application). Still, we may have encountered some device specific bug. Please, share your opinion on the program and tell us if it´s glitch-free on your handset. (source: AndroidLib)

Take a look at what our colleagues with PC World rated as the cream of the crop for 2009 via the source link and do tell us what you think. What does your own top 10 list look like?

  • What does Need for Speed: Undercover for the Palm Pre look like? According to the video that has recently surfaced on the Internet, the title does look pretty cool.
