Zune HD to get Smart DJ, new video codec support, Facebook in early 2010

My inbox was crazy last week during CES and as I was cleaning it out early this morning I saw an email from the Zune PR team talking about some updates coming soon. Microsoft was actually showing off demos of this at CES, but my schedule was already packed so I didn't get a chance to see these new features. Sometime this spring we will see Smart DJ and additional video content support with Facebook coming during the early part of this year.

Nokia E72 and E75 revealed on YouTube, E72 has unique slide-out QWERTY

The E72 is the first Nokia device to have a slide-out QWERTY keyboard much like several Windows Mobile devices (Touch Pro, HTC Vox, and new HTC S740) while the E75 looks like an upgrade to the E71.

Palringo IM client now available for BlackBerry devices

Palringo IM client now available for BlackBerry devices

One thing that keeps bringing me back to S60 is the number and quality of 3rd party applications available for the platform, ranging from VoIP clients to games and multimedia apps. One of the best instant messaging clients I have tried is Palringo because it allows me to connect with Windows Live Messenger, Gtalk, AIM, Yahoo IM, and more all from a single application. In addition to traditional text IM, you can also quickly send photos and voice messages with Palringo. It is currently available for S60, Windows Mobile, and Java-supported devices and they just announced the availability for BlackBerry devices.
