Lenovo X1 touchscreen
Lenovo has launched a new touchscreen handset, the X1, featuring a 3.2-inch WQVGA display and a slide-out keypad. The company appears to have taken inspiration from several competitors, labeling the user interface "Touch Dream." The X1 reference is also used for the Sony-Ericsson XPERIA X1 handset. The Sony-branded device offers an arc-slider QWERTY keyboard, however, and a different interface based on Windows Mobile.

Video rumored for iPhone4G
Video recording capabilities are coming in the next iPhone hardware revision, an allegedly reliable source has told AppleInsider. The details are limited, but there is no suggestion of current hardware being able to support video recording, only an upgraded iPhone with a new built-in camera should support the feature. The revision is expected between late spring and early fall this year, with video support and improved gaming hardware via multi-core PowerVR chips as the headlining features. A screen capture from the forthcoming iPhone Software 3.0 on Engadget's website shows a MobileMe panel for uploading images titled "Upload Video," lending further credence to the rumor.
