News 06.20.2006

- The Opera 9 browser has been officially released, and is really being pushed well by the Opera marketing team. Let's hope that this means a future upgrade to the Nokia 770 version is coming soon. Find out about what's new in the new version of thebrowser here.

- The Linux 2.6.17 kernel is toting better WiFi support and performance. Great news for those of us that were having trouble connecting with unsupported network cards.

- The T-Mobile Sidekick 3 has been officially unveiled, and I speak for myself when I say after being recently exposed to the freedoms of Linux and the Open Source community with the Nokia 770 Internet Tablet and Ubuntu for my laptop, the Sidekick 3 is far fromappealing to me. I'm sure the UI is still as great as it has been in the previous renditions, and there are a lot of improvements on the hardware overall, but that screen just doesn't compare against the 770. There is a lot of room for improvement on the 770's Debian-based [Linux] OS, whereas the Sidekick is locked down so tight that even the new Bluetooth 1.2 functionality is limited to basic transferal of data. Most likely using proprietary software from T-Moble.
