About that 7-inch iPad

Maybe the 7-inch iPad was pronounced dead by Apple in October, but that doesn't mean a design didn't exist. Nor does it necessarily preclude a future tablet.

Encrypted Tweets are UnDecryptable

This image has no alt text

Droid Life just had a one-on-one with a Verizon LTE engineer who goes by black_man_x. Mr. X had a tweet that I’m still running through my decyphertron 4(G)000, and if it cracks the code I’ll get back to you. If you want to take a whack at it:

Just saw something so incredible that it was almost HD… and LiTE as a feather…

I am fondly reminded of one of my favorite PA comics (NSFWish language).

There isn’t even a leaked picture of this chupacabra phone and I want to drop my carrier and go one.

Galaxy Tab Heading to Worst Korea

This image has no alt text

I don’t know where to start with this one; explaining that the Galaxy brand has seemed to penetrate the entire planet but not its home country, or let you know that I’m crossing my fingers that you guys got the headline and that I’m not being a jackass. I read way too much FARK, I know.

Now, Samsung has finally announced that they will be releasing the Galaxy Tab will be releasing a carrier supported tab to their countrymen in the near future. It will be supported by SK Telecom, for now, and come pre loaded with T-DMB TV; releasing without would be a faux pas somewhere along the lines of launching a flagship phone then requiring a rubber bumper so the radio can maintain signal when in hand. Who would do such a thing? Hardware specs are all the same, and South Koreans can expect this device to be supported by their other carriers not long after the initial launch.

Adobe Prepping for Gingerbread?

This image has no alt text

We are all aware of an update that is to be released on the ninth; and now Adobe has updated their Flash plugin description on the Market to let everyone know that the update should be installed to, not only combat the mega security hole, but to “ensure that Flash Player loads properly with future OS updates”.

Flash Update

Oohhh, titillating! This seems to hint that Adobe has gotten their hands on an early release of the Gingerbread SDK, and decided to be proactive in making sure everything will be a smooth transition. Well, for the 2 phones that will eventually be upgraded to Gingerbread before Honeycomb.
