News@8pm: Cheapest iPhone 4 prices and Android iTunes

Welcome to your nightly roundup of the day's news, reviews and goings on courtesy of T3.com.

It's been another busy day for the tech world - here's the best of the days news in digestible format:

Apple iPhone 4 excitement is top of the pile once more, before its official release tomorrow. Today has seen Three and Tesco Mobile iPhone 4 prices surfacing, and by jingo, they’re pretty tempting. On top of the inevitable rip-roaring success of the iPhone 4 has come the news that Apple has sold 3 million iPads in 80 days. Insert further flabbergasted exclamation here. We’ve also reviewed the Creative ZiiSound D5 Bluetooth-equipped speaker so you can liberate your iPod or iPhone, so take a peek here.

Apple’s iOS 4 has been getting up to mischief, with the news that the update can actually slow down your iPhone 3G. We’d stick with the old 3.1.3 OS on the iPhone 3G if we were you as this iPhone 3G video shows a series of tasks being completed quicker on the old 3.1.3 OS than on the new iOS 4 update. In more cheery news, Twitter for iPhone gets an iOS 4 update, putting it well ahead of Facebook in the iOS 4 stakes.

More mobile-related mayhem with the welcome announcement that Google’s iTunes rival for Android will launch this year, with ongoing talks currently taking place between the search giant and music execs to seal the deal. Further, a new ‘droid in the shape of the HTC Wildfire is on sale in Vodafone as of now, offering pared down specs but the same killer HTC Sense features we’ve come to expect.

Non-Kinect related Microsoft news for a change has seen the unveiling of the Xbox Live Family Pack, which will allow four gamers access to Xbox Live for the price of two accounts when it launches. Kind of Kinect-related though, as the offer will come in mighty handy when the motion-control device arrives later this year. More Microsoft news has seen Bing receive some swish new features to make music, gaming and TV searches more intuitive.
