According to  pocketnow.com, Doubleplay offers a unique secondary display to supplement the main 320x480 HVGA screen, splitting the keyboard a like the legacy Nokia E70 Symbian handset.
Based on the branding of the phone, it appears to be headed T-Mobile’s way, although that’s not surprising, especially since it has long been rumored that the device could be arriving on T-Mobile ever since it was first spotted several months back.

Unfortunately while the photo and its name has surfaced, details surrounding the handset are still a little foggy at the moment. All that is known is that it will sport a slideout QWERTY keyboard, which will feature a 320×480 HVGA display in the middle, similar to the Nokia E70 Symbian handset back in the day. The LG Doubleplay is expected to launch 2nd November and will cost $150 on contract.

The iPhone 5 could go on sale on Friday, October 7, with preorders to start on September 30, according to the latest rumors in the ongoing saga of the hotly anticipated next edition of Apple's smartphone.

Citing intel from its own sources, 9To5Mac said yesterday that Apple had been eyeing either October 7 or October 14 as potential iPhone 5 launch dates. But with preproduction apparently running smoothly, the site says, Apple has opted for the earlier date. Read More

Apple will reportedly offer the phone for preorder a week before it hits store shelves, looking at either September 29 or 30, though 9To5Mac's sources pin the 30th as the most likely date. Assuming the preorder date is accurate, at least for now, that also means Apple would have to hold its iPhone 5 unveiling sometime in September.

Apple typically shows off new iPhones and iPads at high-visibility media gatherings some days or weeks ahead of the devices going on sale.

The October 7 date has also been floated by TiPb. However, the tech news site suggests taking the reports with a grain of salt since even if the date is on the money at this point, Apple's plans are fluid. Even 9To5Mac admits that "the date could and likely will change again."

 

After Apple has been successful with their preliminary injunction to stop Samsung from selling their Galaxy 10.1 tablet in Europe, it seems as though the company has now turned their sights on Motorola and their Xoom tablet.

Just as the Galaxy 10.1 tablet, Apple claims that “the Xoom tablet infringes on its registered EU Community Design for the iPad,” Ars Technica wrote, but it’s still not clear if this is the same reason Apple is going after the Xoom.

“According to the complaint filed against Samsung with the Landgericht Düsseldorf, Apple has also filed complaints in the same court against both Motorola and a German company called JAY-tech over the iPad design.

The complaint against Motorola targets the company’s Xoom Android tablet, which launched in late February,” Ars Technica wrote.

This isn’t the first time that Apple and Motorola are at logger-heads. Apple is in the process of legal action against Motorola concerning more than 40 smartphone-related patents, four federal lawsuits and two on-going ITC investigations.
