It’s sort of hard to believe, but AT&T finally has an Android phone worth paying attention to. Mind you, the AT&T compatible Nexus One is easily the best Googlephone on America’s largest GSM operator, but this is the first one that the company has bothered to brand and sell on a subsidized plan within its own stores. Pundits could argue the reasons why forever, but considering that the carrier’s doing all it can just to keep up with the demand for iPhones, it’s hard to imagine that AT&T has been longing to pursue Android with reckless abandon.

It was hard to get a read on Apple’s candy-colored iPhone 4 cases during the keynote the other day, but the industrious folks at AppAdvice served up these pretty new shots of the official iPhone case. It looks…like a bumper.

The iPad has made a splash, but Apple’s Flash-free, App-centric platform has certainly left the door open for a web tablet not held back by Apple’s shackles.
So enter the 12.1-inch JooJoo, which has just gone on sale in the UK. Designed by Fusion Garage, a company that has not been without some controversy, the platform is a gesture-based tablet that is, essentially, one big web browser with a Wi-Fi connection.
The cost, including UK VAT, is £374. We’re expecting the entry-level iPad to hit the £399 price point. Is it worth as much as the iPad? Read on for our (varied) thoughts, [...]
