The first official Windows Mobile 6.5 screenshots were released today. We've already seen these before, so it's not entirely new. Let's just hope Microsoft has corrected the responsiveness issues that were virtually everywhere on WinMo 6.1. I'm excited to see how Microsoft improves Windows Mobile and am still waiting to see if they change the name to Windows Phone. MWC will reveal many, many things.

This may sound like a global-warming saver, but it's not. Technically it could be, but let's not talk about that right now. Let's talk about the Samsung Blue Earth which is a solar-powered phone. I guess it got its name from being so eco-friendly. The phone is made from "a recycled plastic from water bottles, the phone [has] an 'eco' mode for efficiently adjusting screen brightness, backlight duration and Bluetooth usage, and an 'eco walk' app / built-in pedometer to tell you how much CO2 emission you've saved by walking instead of driving." The big solar-panel on the back will charge your phone, so that's a nice feature to have. Unfortunately, there are no words on the OS, specs or price, but it is scheduled to release in the second half of this year.

World of Warcraft's lead designer, Jeffery Kalpan, has left WoW to work on Blizzard's new MMO. He actually didn't leak anything about the new MMO from Blizzard, but he thanked everyone for the support. He mentioned that WoW, in his eyes, is still the number one game. He will use WoW's success as a fuel for Blizzard's next MMO which has yet to be revealed.

Flower will be released on PSN today for $9.99. You can watch the trailer at this link, if you're interested.

The Cowon L3 was just announced to release in Asia. This PMP probably won't be released in North America, but it's worth a look. The L3 has a 7-inch touchscreen with a 700 x 480 resolution. It has a dual-core CPU, 128MB of SDRAM and a GPS. It only has 4GB of on-board storage but thankfully, it has an SD slot.

The LG Xnote P510's price and availability is not available yet, but the specs are. Who doesn't love to see new specs? The new Xnote will have a 15.4-inch screen with a resolution of 1,440 x 900 display, your choice of 2GB or 4GB of RAM, your choice between three Core 2 Duo processors and even has a 64GB SSD and a 500GB HDD on the top-end model. The P510 will also have a rubber keyboard and will sport NVIDIA's new GeForce GT130M graphics card. You can watch a video of this laptop here, via YouTube.
