At Ottawa's Winterlude festival, some Canadians have sculpted an ice sculpture of a Blackberry. Gizmodo points out that it could be the Blackberry Curve 8900, but i don't know for sure. I do know that it looks amazing though.

It's about time that Nokia finally decides to release an app store. We all know about Apple's app store, but Blackberry, Palm and Samsung also have one, just in case you didn't know. Nokia should be announcing this app store at MWC and i find it surprising that they didn't already have something like this. Nokia holds the top spot, in terms of selling the most mobile handsets.

Remember the LG KM900 Arena? I pointed out that it looked a lot like the iPhone's UI, but it actually resembles Linux more than the iPhone. Since the Arena's UI will spin like a cube (uber 3D-ness) it is similar to Linux's desktop OS, which also has the 'cube'. It's amazing that LG has decided to go with a '3D' UI, but i feel like it is not needed. Unless it has some amazing features, i don't really see the need of making the UI 3D. It should be good for multi-tasking though, right?

Panasonic's new HDC-HS300 HD camcorder was one of the many camcorders featured at CES. But, the reviews are now out and they have nothing but good things to say about this wonderful camcorder. One critic mentioned that this "could be the best [consumer] camcorder released all year" and that it is "nothing short of stunning in virtually all conditions." This camcorder also has a touchscreen LCD (for your menu needs) and a microphone that can record 5.1 audio. It's sets itself apart from the crowd so much that critics mentioned that the VIXIA, from Canon, should look out for this camcorder.

The Samsung NC10 netbook looks like it will have a "special edition" model that will be released. With the special edition, this netbook will be able to run for 9.5 hours (like the Asus EEE PC), have a larger trackpad and a new glossy screen. The special edition NC10 will cost $50 USD more than the original, which is a good deal. This will bump the price to $500 USD. Say hello to the new "smudge-loving screen."
