PDAs, Cellphones, Wireless I don't trust the site that brought the rumour, but hey, we don't have much else to report on so bear with me. DownloadSquad is reporting that they've heard from a reliable source that Verizon and Google are going to unveil a Chrome OS tablet in November. So basically, Chrome OS is going to compete with Android on tablets. Excellent idea. Oh and also, Engadget has compiled Verizon's roadmap for the rest of the year, and it's Android, Android, Android, Andrdoid. Update: Surprising - it's nonsense.

Learn from Apple

I hope the designers don't take the same tact that many non-Apple fans, and bash Apple. Apple didn't get everything right with the iPad, but they got a lot right, and I hope they learn from Apple's success. For instance:

* Battery life: I just flew from the US to India, and with watching a movie, a few Dr Who episodes, read most of a book and played games. When I landed in India, my battery was at 30%. That's about 6+ hours of total usage, give or take, and I still had 30% of my battery.
* Getting media on my iPad was simple. I used iTunes, and it was easy. For books, I could have used iBooks but I used Amazon's Kindle app instead (better selection and better overall store than iBooks IMHO). Also ridiculously easy.
* Everything was built for touch. There's no mouse-based apps in there that have a shitty skin grafted on.
* It's fast and responsive.
