Oh, by the way: July 17, 2009

Here's some of the other stuff that happened in the wide world of mobile for Friday, July 17th, 2009:

  • As Samsung goes, so goes LG -- usually, anyway -- and it stands to reason that Lucky Goldstar would want to be hot on Sammy's heels in the Android race. Indeed, it turns out that the unannounced LG GW620 Eve is running Android with a QWERTY keyboard, details we now know thanks to the official user agent profile for the device. No hint on pricing or availability, though. [Via NieuweMobiel.NL, thanks to everyone who sent this in]
  • Palm has made a cute little RSS app for the Pre, but instead of making it available through any customer-facing channel, it's been outed through the Rough Cuts dev guide. If they were smart, they'd clean it up and push it through an OTA. [Via Gadgets on the Go]
  • It turns out that The Weather Channel's developers are already cooking up an Android 2.0-compatible version of their app, and they've said it'll be available "late summer." Does that mean Android 2.0 devices and / or updates will hit around then? Food (donuts, of course) for thought.
