Whatever Happened to the iPad Rivals of 2010?

Back in August of 2010, it was clear that Apple’s iPad–which had gone on sale on April 3rd–was a gigantic, game-changing hit. The rest of the industry was scrambling to respond, and there had already been a steady stream of announcements, pre-announcements, sneak peeks, and rumors, along with a few products that had actually shipped.

Following a trend set by other carriers, AT&T has begun sending SMS warning messages to the top 5 percent of data users on its network. The message alerts consumers that they are among AT&T's top 5 percent that billing period, and suggests they use Wi-Fi to avoid reduced data speeds in the future.

Verizon appeals net neutrality rules, let the legal wrangling begin

FCC Net Neutrality
We told you it was only a matter of time and, honestly, it took a bit longer than expected. Verizon has officially filed an appeal to the FCC's net neutrality rules, which are set to take effect on Novemeber 20th. It wasn't until the regulations were published in the Federal Register on September 23rd that they became fair game for legal challenges -- a technicality that resulted in Verizon's previous attempt to block the rules being tossed out by the US Court of Appeals in April. While Verizon senior vice president and deputy general counsel, Michael E. Glover, assures netizens that the company is "fully committed to an open Internet," it none-the-less takes issue with the FCC's attempt to institute new "broad" and "sweeping" regulations on the telecommunications industry. We're sure this is only the first of several cases that will be brought before the courts challenging the commission's authority. Stayed tuned to see if and when MetroPCS re-enters the fray, and to find out the ultimate fate of net neutrality here in the US. Check out the brief statement from Verizon after the break.

Sony Enters the World of Medical Devices

Micronics, Inc., a developer of point of care diagnostic technologies, has just been acquired by Sony Corporation, the consumer electronics giant. At a glance, this news may come as a surprise given Sony Corporation’s status as a consumer electronics manufacturer. After all, what does the technology behind a Blu-ray disc or Playstation have in common with modern diagnostic devices? Well, as it turns out, more than you might think.

Micronics is a developer of diagnostic products with a large number of patents related to microfluidic technology. To date, they have already commercialized a nucleic acid testing device platform for infectious disease detection using disposable assay cartridges. These cartridges can be fabricated using micro-scale and nano-scale etching technology, in much the same way that data is etched onto Blu-ray or other optical storage discs. It is likely that Sony sees an opportunity to translate some of its optical disc technology and manufacturing know how into the microfluidics field.

Police Raid Home of iPhone Counterfeiters

I'm growing so tired of iPhone knockoffs that I hate myself every time I report it. But this time is different. Chinese police in Shanghai have successfully arrested the iPhone counterfeiters for making and selling iPhone 4. Surprisingly, the fake iPhones were made using several genuine components and were very hard to distinguish from the originals. These fake iPhones could even be recognized by iTunes.

iPhone 5 cases and realistic unibody dummy show off incredible slimness

Granted, this work's only based on various data and rumor gathered across the web, but it's still a pretty convincing presentation -- the ultra slim teardrop design and elongated home button from previous reports are taken into account, and the mute switch has been relocated from the top left to the top right. BENM.AT told us that this dummy fits nicely into the supposed iPhone 5 cases that they obtained. Speaking of which, we also found some of these cases too -- read on to find out what they're like.

Iceland gets a data center to call its own, still believes in fairies

You say Iceland, we immediately think Eyjafjallajokull -- and no, we haven't had a narcoleptic collapse upon these very keys. It's been over a year since that volcano swept the headlines and interrupted air travel, providing outsiders with a skewed perception of the country's geological constancy. Well, haters prepare to get served, because Verne Global is setting up data center shop in the homeland of a certain swan-wearing pop pixie, and leveraging the abundance of renewable resources at the ready. To do this, the company's contracted UK-based Colt Group to build the separate pieces of its planned data center and put'em all together on the site of a former NATO base -- chosen for its apparent stability. The location is ideal in that the region's naturally cool climate'll keep server temperatures down, in addition to providing the center with cheap hydroelectric and geothermal energy. Expect the data farm to be up and running in Keflavik this October when it's scheduled to be completed -- with the blessing of the little people, naturally.

Dell Streak Pro 101DL. Just rolls off the tongue, doesn't it?

There's also the usual array of WiFi, Bluetooth, GPS and dual cameras on board (1.3 megapixel front-facing / 8 megapixel rear), with planned support for 1seg, and Dell's SyncUp cloud storage in the works. Of course, the phone delivers up to 14Mbps down via the network's WCDMA 2100MHz frequency, but you globe-trotting folk can always take advantage of the included quad-band GSM / WCDMA radios. As with all things pre-released, certain specs can still change before the ringing in of our new year. Let's just keep our toes crossed that one of those potential alterations is a frozen mobile OS dessert. Get a gander of the coming soon gadget in the videos after the break.

Is a 10-inch Kindle Fire coming? Amazon says 'stay tuned'

Is a 10-inch Amazon Kindle Fire coming?
We already knew to expect a 7-incher today, and that's exactly what we got in the Kindle Fire. We just asked Amazon Kindle vice president (and thinking man) Russ Grandinetti when we might expect a larger successor. With a smile, Russ said "Stay tuned," and left it at that. If you'll recall, RIM's Ryan Biden told us at a past Engadget Show that there was "no reason" the 7-inch BlackBerry PlayBook couldn't be shipped in a different size, and given recent rumors that both outfits were working with Quanta, it's not too tough to read betwixt the lines. We also asked about an international release of the Fire, knowing that many of you are lamenting its US-only release in November. We got the same response there. So, it's coming... the only question is when.

Mitsubishi Electric to build world's fastest elevator, usher in the death of small talk

Cheer up, ladies, because Mitsubishi Electric is about to make your elevator ride substantially less awkward. Yesterday, the company unveiled plans to construct what it hopes will become the world's fastest lifts, as part of a new project in China. The forthcoming set of elevators will be housed within the still-incomplete Shanghai Tower, where they'll travel between the basement and 119th floor at a speed of 59 feet per second -- a rate that would narrowly eclipse the current Guinness world record, which sits at about 55 feet per second. These elevators, of course, would be significantly slower if they were filled with vomit, which is why Mitsubishi will add active roller guides, vibration-dampening roof covers and pneumatic controls to make the ride a bit easier on the human body. Unfortunately, it'll be a while before these flesh wagons enter the record books, as the Shanghai Tower likely won't be completed until 2014. Willy Wonka, however, has already begun the appeals process. Elevate past the break for more information in the full press release.

Kyocera Duramax ready to kickoff Sprint's Direct Connect service on October 2nd for $70

All of the hullabaloo about Sprint's new CDMA-based Direct Connect service was not for naught, as the Now Network has finally confirmed that it will indeed be launching in a limited number of markets this upcoming Sunday, with broader expansion coming in early 2012. To get things started, however, the network ought to have a phone or two that have the tech built in, right? The Kyocera Duramax will receive the honor of being the very first phone to work with the new plans and will be a certified 810G military-standard clamshell handset with a 3.2MP camera, stereo Bluetooth, a 2.5mm headphone jack (not a typo) and a Dura-Grip rubber casing. What about the Kyocera Duracore and the Motorola Admiral? They're still forthcoming, but Sprint only mentions that both devices are coming out before the end of the year. The sooner the better here, because the lack of options can't possibly be a selling point for the brand new service. The nitty-gritty details are in the presser after the break.
