Review: Samsung m620 helped by Telus, but no iPhone

Samsung m620 Review

When Sprint unveiled the Samsung UpStage this spring and lowered prices at its direct-download music store, both it and Samsung clearly hoped to take a bite out of the iPod, iTunes, and (unintentionally) the iPhone by dedicating a whole surface of the cellphone to media controls. Apple hasn't lost sleep, but it was clear that music was a much more serious concern for carriers besides AT&T. Now, the Canadian provider Telus has made its own attempt at replicating the buzz surrounding the UpStage with its own version, simply titled the m620. Does the combination of the dual-sided media controls with Telus' music subscriptions and XM radio stations help the device in the light of its main competition?

Hacks automate iPhone 3rd-party apps, terminal

Installer App and iPHUC

Enthusiasts have successfully streamlined the processes of both installing third-party programs to the iPhone and command-line access to its inner workings, according to updates from both developer communities. A new beta of the Installer.app utility is now said to completely automate the process of derestricting (or jailbreaking) the iPhone's file system and uploading a software package manager to the Apple device. Once installed, the Mac OS X app allows the iPhone to download and install Books or any of the other unofficial third-party programs already written for the device simply by using either local Wi-Fi or an EDGE connection.
