MobileTechRoundup show #167, Whispersync, iPhone 3.0 notification, and Opera Mobile with Turbo

Summary:Kevin finally sent back James' original Kindle, but only after first buying his own Kindle 2. In MobileTechRoundup show #167 we started off by chatting about how the Whispersync technology makes the Kindle a compelling product for iPhone ebook fans. The official announcement was also made last week for eReader beta for BlackBerry devices. Om Malik broke the news that Skype may be coming to the iPhone next week at CTIA and Kevin and I will be there to find out first hand and maybe make some test calls between our iPhones. We didn't get into all the details of the iPhone OS 3.0 update, but we did discuss the implication of push notification and whether or not other will follow Apple's lead in using this type of system. Opera Mobile 9.7 also gets a Turbo boost and James and I talked a bit about why we like this browsing solution.
