Sprint now pushing webOS 1.3.5 to the Pre

We'd heard webOS 1.3.5 would be coming to the Pre on Sprint today, and here we go -- it's being pushed to devices right now. The official changelog is quite long, but the big-ticket tweaks include the removal of the app storage limit, better performance, and improved battery life. We'll let you know how our update goes -- you let us know the same now, kaykay? Kay.

LG eXpo now available for $50 from Amazon

AT&T’s LG eXpo has made a quick jump from launch announcement to price reduction. Originally debuting for $199 after a $100 mail in rebate and a two year contract, the eXpo is now available for the rock bottom price of $99 from Amazon with free activation. Throw in a $50 Amazon gift card and the LG eXpo will cost you a mere $49 with a two year contract. Better get while the getting is good, though, as both the $50 gift card and the free activation are limited time offers which end December 28th.

Nokia N900 and the case of the best unboxing ever

We'll just come out and say it: this is so awesome. In fact, if you want to just take our word for it, skip the copy and head straight to the video after the break -- you really only need to watch the first four or so minutes... Still here? Alright then. The shiny cube comes straight from Espoo and houses a N900, but the only way to get into the box is to plug it into a computer, establish a link, and then type in the right terminal command to unlock the lid (spoiler: it's company motto "connecting people" -- how clever) in addition to -- poof -- smoke! (Our favorite part.) Given the technical prerequisites, our guess is this has something to do with Nokia's the hack-centric "Push" program, but really that's just a guess. Like we said, video after the break, and if you opt to watch past the first couple minutes, you'll get to see a plastic fox. Trust us.

Re transforms your iPhone into a universal remote (which seems like a step backwards, to be honest)

OK, so we know a thing or two about the "convenience" of using your iPhone as a remote control. For instance, using it to control Boxee was alright -- until we needed to make a call. Or we received a call. Not to rain on anyone's parade, but the idea of re-purposing your phone to act as a universal remote seems a little silly. But what do we know? Maybe you hold all calls while Jersey Shore is on anyways. In that case, Re could be your next favorite gadget. This bad boy lets your handset communicate with all your AV equipment via infrared, contains an extensive database of devices, and can learn from any IR remote. If that weren't enough, New Kinetix promises regular updates to the app -- and your typical remote can't do that! Compatible with the iPod Touch as well, there's no word yet on a price or release date, but we're expecting that we'll be getting plenty more details come CES time.

Google Nexus One

Finally a new phone that will be better than the iphone, iphone 3g, or iphone 3gs. Behind curtains Google will be releasing Google Nexus One which is a really sleek phone. As Google tries to dominate the cell phone industry, this cell phone has tons of great technology behind. It runs on Android 2.1 platform and is really intelligent. The carrier for this phone will be T-Mobile and quite possibly AT&T. Lucky Google employees already have the cell phone way before release date. Think they should buy Google Nexus One accessories.

Sony Ericsson Pureness released at Saks and Sony Cierge for $990

The economy isn’t going to keep Sony Ericsson from cranking out ridiculously expensive, high-end dumb phones for the high-class crowd. One of its latest, the Pureness, will now be available through Saks or Sony Cierge for a whopping, or mere, depending on who you are, $990. What do you get for that kind of cash? Talk, text and time. That’s right — just the basics and that is exactly how SE is advertising this thing, but it also comes with a 24-hour global concierge service “providing its members support for all lifestyle requests.” The clear screen and keypad light up with info only when buttons are pushed, which makes it look like a sleek, artsy gadget when not in use. If we had to choose, we’d be saving up for a whole different high-end line of handsets

Sony Ericsson XPERIA X10 heading to AT&T and T-Mobile?

There is word floating around that Sony Ericsson is planning on two variants of the XPERIA X10. While it’s far from confirmed, it appears as though SE’s plan of teaming with U.S. carriers to subsidize this bad boy is working out. Both versions will have 3G support for their respective carriers, which means the T-Mobile version will have support for the 1700MHz band. SE is also saying it plans to have this phone out in early 2010, so we’ll find out sooner than later. We’re just wondering what pricing will be like since this device will have to be heavily subsidized to come down from its $700+ price tag. Hit the jump for some device specs.

Motorola's Opus One leaks out, whispers of 'iDEN' and 'Android' overheard

There's an excruciatingly small amount of detail to go on right now, but the Boy Genius has managed to snag a few tasty shots of what could be the world's first iDEN Android handset. The Opus One (as it's currently codenamed) certainly smacks of the myTouch 3G in terms of design, though the bottom-mounted ball is obviously replaced with what appears to be an intensely large home button. Hit the source link for a couple more images, and drop your wildest estimations of a specs list in comments below.
