Oh, by the way: July 14, 2009

Here's some of the other stuff that happened in the wide world of mobile for Tuesday, July 14th, 2009:

  • Windows Mobile 6.5 Standard -- yes, Standard, not Professional -- has been spied on video running on an HTC S710. What does it look like? Pretty much the same as 6.1 with a few tweaks.
  • A security dude has discovered a Bluetooth "vulnerability" of sorts in HTC devices running Windows Mobile 6.0 and 6.1 that allows unfettered access to the phone's file system when file sharing is enabled, but here's the catch: you've got to pair with an untrusted phone for it to really be an issue, which might explain why HTC doesn't seem to concerned about it.
  • Prison directors from 26 states have come together to sign a petition asking for FCC petition to jam cellphone signals on their premises. Something tells us the CTIA isn't really cool with that. [Via Phone Scoop]
  • Remember that rebranded Mobinnova Ice hacked to run Android in Russia? Yeah, well, it's totally real, and has a unit to prove it.
  • Canada's Koodo Mobile is now offering the LG 5500 flip for CAD $175 (about $154). The VGA camera isn't going to inspire any deep romantic love, but the lack of a contract just might. [Via MobileSyrup]
