Things We Missed, You Shouldn’t [March 2nd]

  • The Sony Ericsson Xperia Play will be available on all major Australian carriers come May/June.
  • Trendy issues another press release for something we’ve already known: Dungeon Defenders will have cross-platform multiplayer.

  • Three UK’s getting a bunch of HTC phones. Here are the release windows you can expect for each of them.
  • Elonex has introduced another Android-based tablet. No, it isn’t running Honeycomb.

  1. Kinda funny ’cause the today my teacher said he would extend out project due date by a week if we get him an ipad (jokingly) but now the ipad 2 is released today also. Irony? I think so. Conspiracy against android? Not today.

  2. The new iPad is slick, although its not got any specs that are better than the xoom, im sure that the OS is more polished, thats the only reason why i havent gotten a xoo, yet, i dont want to send it in for a LTE upgrade, i dont want to NOT have SD support. ive played with several and im very impressed with them and its a solid peace of hardware, they could have waited another month or so and finished up its software and released a beast. i cant wait til androids game catch up with iOS either, i bought my wife a IP4 for valentines day and the games on that thing or so much better, hell they have one snowboading game that easily rivals my old PS2, not quite up to par with my PS3 but still marvelous, its so much simpler than android and i hate that but overall its polished, man im dying inside waiting on a dual core phone with an UNLOCKED bootloader

  3. @ksizzle9…Then perhaps you can wait and get the samsung galaxy S2 which will give the apple5 for its money. FYI it has unlocked bootloader and you can sideline apps too as well
