Android KitKat might have reached 1.1 percent of handsets in one month, but, as usual, the latest version of iOS is reaching Apple devices a lot quicker.
The Korean firm has folded Apple's flagship smartphone into an existing lawsuit covering iPhone, iPad and iPod Touch devices. Meanwhile, a judge has lifted a temporary ban on the Samsung Galaxy Tab 10.1, as a jury found it was not infringing on Apple's patents.
The market for MP3 players is a tough one, because it's dominated by Apple's iPod range, and also because it's a declining market, as more users opt to listen to music on their mobile phones. However, having produced a high-end Android smartphone in the shape of the Xperia S, Sony has followed up with the Android-based Z1000 touch-screen MP3 player, which was launched in September in Japan.
Samsung's 4-inch Galaxy Player is the portable media player version of the Galaxy S smartphone -- and it's targeted squarely at buyers of the iPod touch. Should Apple care?

One of the great things about the iPhone (and the iPod Touch) is that there are so many ways you can use a smartphone now. With the thousands of applications available in the Apple iTunes store, there are so many ways to make your life easier right on your phone. But some of these applications take ease to a new level of laziness. Here's five of them.

I talked a bit about the FLO TV service and new device on The Mobile Gadgeteer, but with today's CES 2010 announcement FLO TV is branching into the smartphone space. They announced a partnership with the folks who make the iPhone Mophie Juicepack batteries to launch a sleeve that fits on your iPhone or iPod touch to give you a wireless FLO TV experience. FLO TV is television sent out over the airwaves and does not use your wireless data for streaming television content. These products will start shipping during the first half of this year.

To the bewilderment of users coming from the Windows Mobile smartphone world, Apple's mobile platform, the iPhone and iPod Touch, don't come standard with user access to a file system and a file reading application to read those files. Instead, it's what longtime Apple calls a "third-party opportunity." Here are some tips for formatting PDFs for the iPhone.
Touchy-feely features on their way…

While mobile devices may be a dream tool for staff, they can be a security nightmare for IT management
Kevin and I discussed the newest iPhone firmware update to kick off MobileTechRoundup show #112 and James still has no interest in getting the iPhone, although the iPod Touch may soon be in his collection. I may be upgrading my Slingbox Classic to a SOLO soon and am loving the N95 SlingPlayer Mobile client. The US N95-3 is available now for US$699 and this may be the next device on my list to obtain. The Palm Centro is coming soon to Sprint at only US$99, but James doesn't think it will have much of an impact on the smartphone market. Kevin and I chime in with our thoughts too. Is the Apple mobile device just wishful thinking or will we see something in 2008? Office Mobile 6.1 as a stand-alone application was linked online, but then pulled. It will be coming soon though so stay tuned if you want this Office software for your mobile device.
Working smart and hard?
I am still testing out the Apple iPhone, but I am also discovering that it is basically a feature phone with iPod functionality that is missing basic phone functions and many smartphone functions. Granted it isn't really designed for power users like me, but the dang interface keeps drawing me in. There is another device that I have been seriously thinking about that I just discovered is available from Dell and that is the Nokia E90 Communicator. The listed price is just under US$900 and after adding it to my cart and seeing I have to pay tax the total is just under US$1,000. I am thinking of selling off my E61i to offset the cost and may go for it if I can find a Dell coupon.
If the iPhone takes off, the overall penetration of OS X will skyrocket and attract some serious attention from malware writers.
The Nokia N91 is a multimedia S60 smartphone that allows you to browse, subscribe and listen to podcasts and get unlimited subscription content on a single device. It takes the best of the iPod and other MP3 players and adds a high powered mobile phone. Is the N91 the device that will set the standard for multimedia converged devices?
