Microsoft Prototype Stolen, Killzone 2 To Get Co-op?, Sprint Locks Up The Pre For 2009, Philips GoGear PMPs, Asus Netbook Running Android

Old news here, but in case you didn't know, Microsoft had one of their prototype phones stolen at MWC. "A prototype phone loaded with a top-secret copy of the new software was lifted from an executive's pocket." The executive is unnamed, but it's not really important. I guess that's what happens when MWC is being held at Barcelona, "a city famous for its world class pickpockets." Talk about Microsoft getting owned. Although, i don't know why anyone would want to know anything about Windows Mobile 6.5.

Killzone 2 may be reportedly getting co-op as DLC in the future. I don't know if you remember, but Sony mentioned about a month ago that there "are no plans for co-op in Killzone 2." Sony just loves to upset their fans and then reward them later. Well, most of the time there is a reward, at least.

If you're hoping to get the Palm Pre on a different carrier (other than Sprint) then you may be out of luck. A new report says that "the Pre is Sprint's exclusively for 2009." The Palm Pre will be the first phone to feature the new WebOS platform. But, it's only the first of many other multi-tasking phones that will be available running this OS, so no need to panic. Unless you really like the Pre and i think it's going to be a great device.

Philips will be releasing two PMPs that will be released in Europe this April. As of right now, there is no release date scheduled for North America, but i'll give you the rundown of these 2 PMPs anyway. The smaller 2-inch PMP is the GoGear Ariaz. It will have your choice of 4GB, 8GB or 16GB of memory, has FM radio, a built-in mic and has a combination of touchscreen buttons and the "large rocker key" for your navigating. The updated 2.8-inch display version is called the GoGear Opus. It will have Bluetooth and your choice of 8GB, 16GB or 32GB of memory. The prices of these PMPs will range from the $100 - $230 USD (79 - 179) price range.

The Google OS looks like it's finally here. It opened up with Android running on the Google phone, the T-Mobile G1. Android began to expand to more phones and is continuing its growth. Asus is now working on a new netbook running Android, the Google OS, which is interesting. Because of the fact that Windows XP is running on 80-90% of all netbooks, this would make Google a strong competitor for Microsoft's Windows. If all things go according to plan, Android will continue to gain popularity and will expand to notebooks and PCs. Believe it folks, the Google OS is here. Asus have mentioned that they plan on releasing the Android-based netbook by the end of the year. It is said to already be in development.
