Thanks to a slip up by Acer UK while announcing the Acer Z5600 PC (specially designed for Windows 7) the official release date of Win7 is confirmed as 23rd October 2009 (as rumored by us way back in 2008). Also confirmed that all Vista purchases 30 days prior to Windows7 release shall be elligible for a free upgrade.
Ever since it became public that the N97 won’t pack as much power under the hood, Nokia’s flagship device doesn’t seem that attractive. It is however a great phone which will get lots of attention and probably lots of buyers. That’s probably what Nokia is thinking since it has created a dedicated landing page for the N97. The website is interactive and it will show you what the N97 is all about. And just in case you decide to get one you can pre-order your own N97 for the special price of $699.
There is a new game app over at the Apple app store from Glu Mobile. The game is Cops and Robbers, a game that will give players a rush of adrenaline as they play a thief escaping pursuers or play as a cop chasing down a criminal on the run.
“Cops & Robbers introduces unique sub-genre because we set out to make a fast-moving experience that has the flow of a racing game with the variety and challenge of an action platformer,” said Jill Braff, senior vice president of global publishing, Glu Mobile. “We are excited to provide consumers with a game that takes advantage of the unique and engaging features of the revolutionary iPhone and iPod touch.”
Cops & Robbers plays off of parkour-style acrobatics using unique accelerometer controls of the iPhone and iPod touch. Set in a 3-D urban landscape, the game is a visual feast full of shadows and rich glowing effects.
