Yesterday afternoon I got sent LG’s new GW620 – the company’s first Android-based handset. I’ve had nowhere near enough time to formulate a proper opinion of the phone, but here are some first impressions:
Reader Daniel loves his HTC Dream, but was a little unimpressed by the company’s reticence to actually upgrade the Android software to version 1.5 (Cupcake). So he asked Optus about it on Twitter and actually got a response: they’ll be rolling out the update in “late July”.
You know Wired editor Chris Anderson’s pet idea of the moment that “atoms are the new bits”? At just $US750, MakerBot’s CupCake CNC rapid prototyping machine—3D printing with extruded melted ABS plastic—made me think about it.
