Geoff’s recap of GDGT Live
In this episode, we discuss all of the Apple, Android, gaming, and HTC hardware news plus we talk about Halo Reach!
Apple relaxes 3rd party dev tool restrictions – is it because of Epic Games announcement?
iOS 4.2 now in beta for iPad and iPhone
Steve Woz appearance on TheTechBuzz.com
- Desire Z and Desire HD – no kickstand?
- HTC Locations, which will provide cached maps for access without the necessity of downloading
- Image- and video-editing from the device, as well as camera effects (maybe like some 3rd party apps)
- e-reading feature allowing users to buy books from the Kobo e-book store, highlight, annotate, search for definitions, and translate text right from the interface
- DLNA streaming for “screen-sharing,” etc.
- New incoming call notification that slides up from the bottom rather than taking up the whole screen
- shorter boot time (10 seconds, according to HTC)
- A new website will launch next month — htcsense.com
