Desktop Dock, went up for order earlier in the week, and we couldn't help but mash in our credit card details for one ourselves. Designed to not only recharge the phone but to stream music from it to a set of connected speakers, check out our Nexus One Desktop Dock hands-on gallery.
T-Mobile myTouch Slide in the wild, we're seriously not impressed by HTC's design skills on this occasion. Taken by a Droiddeveloper tipster, the shots show the rumored QWERTY handset (aka the Espresso or the myTouch2) complete with an optical trackpad. Other specifications apparently include a camera with LED flash, a 1,300mAh battery and a microSD card slot that's apparently accessible without requiring the battery be removed. The display is an HVGA 320 x 480 panel and under the hood there's an ARM11 processor rather than something more recent (and swift) like a Snapdragon. Considering the myTouch Slide was tipped to be replacing the Sidekick range, we can't imagine fashionistas being particularly keen either. Rumors suggest the handset will arrive on May 17th.

a ROM update for the HTC Magic, and as promised it delivers their Sense UI to the Android smartphone. The company had confirmed back in 2009 that Asian Magic handset would have access to an update, but it seems that all non-carrier-branded devices are now eligible.
"This ROM Upgrade for your HTC Magic will let you experience HTC SenseTM on your phone. HTC SenseTM lets you create a phone just right for you. You can customize your experience to be any way you like. Discover intuitive experiences that make everything you do on your phone effortless and delightful."Unfortunately it looks like this update won't work for the T-Mobile myTouch 3G, though we'll wait to hear for confirmation from owners about that; HTC's site requires the serial number from your phone before it will allow you to download the new firmware, v3.05.401.3, so as to prevent you from accidentally bricking the handset. Even so, it's a good idea to back up your Magic before you start since HTC warn this update will definitely wipe it completely. You can download the ROM here. [Thanks Paul!]
cyrket.com, a port of the Market that enabled browsing and searching applications in near real-time via a standard website. Cyrket went down toward the end of October last year without warning or explanation, but a search indicates the site was disabled by Google, which allows direct Market access only from Android handsets.
