Apple vs Nokia round 3: Apple asks US government to ban Nokia phones

It seems that Nokia kicked over the hornet's nest back in October when they sued Apple for infringing on patents that they claim others have been legitimately paying for while Apple has been refusing to pay for. Not surprisingly, Apple then sued Nokia for infringing on their patents. We then recently saw a rather stupid request from Nokia to have Apple iPhone, iPod, and Mac computers banned from being imported. Of course, the latest filing from Apple asking the US government to ban Nokia phone imports is the expected retaliation we have come to expect from these two.

fring brings video call viewing to iPhone and two-way video to Nokia

I've been using fring on my Nokia devices for years and just last week they announced two-way video calling for select Symbian devices. They are now following up this week with the announcement for the iPhone that gives iPhone and iPod touch owners the ability to VIEW video calls from callers over Skype or fring. With your WiFi-connected iPhone or iPod touch you can interact via voice to the person shown on your display, but you cannot make video calls from your iPhone or iPod touch. If Apple includes a front facing camera on the iPhone in the future then you will be able to make video calls as well.

Navigon's MobileNavigator brings offline voice guided navigation to the iPhone

The first voice guided navigation GPS system in North America for the iPhone was AT&T Navigator (see my review) that was launched back in June. I was very impressed with the software and service and used it quite a bit last weekend on an out of town trip where I brought no physical maps along. There are pros and cons to a connected, subscription-based solution and the major complaint is that a data connection is required for navigation. I just read a press release over on Gear Diary where Navigon announced the first navigation solution for the iPhone and iPod touch in North America (Navigon previously launched in Europe) where the maps live on the device so no active data connection is needed.
