Tech Week: PSP Android phone and PAYG iPhone 4s

Plus: The new Premier League ball and Apple iMac review

Yet another busy week in tech has past us by, here are our highlight from the past seven days, enjoy.

News of the Week
iPhone 4 arriving on a variety of PAYG handsets has been the week’s big story with Vodafone toughing it out for the best deals. Whilst O2 might have lost out on this battle its customers can now pick themselves up the latest Apple handset with all the O2 PAYG perks. Following the announcement early in the week that Vodafone was to offer the iPhone 4 on a PAYG basis, huge demand saw the red network provider run out of stocks. Back to square one it is for Vodafone iPhone 4 hopefuls then.

Android rumours and Android facts challenged Apple’s news making title in the past seven days with words of a PSP phone coming from Sony Ericsson with Google OS innards running wild in the land of tech. On the fact front, the Android OS has outsold that of fierce rivals Apple as it climbs the ranks of global popularity and helps push phone manufacturer HTC into the top 10 of world mobile brands for the first time.

Kicking off a trio off gaming stories this week was the news that Sony’s PlayStation Move is to change the future of gaming with its 3D capabilities. This may have come from a Sony employee but we at T3 agree. Following that Microsoft came out with another blow for Kinect as the motion peripheral disappoints rumours that it will understand sign language for its deaf users. Finally on the gaming front we get a sneak peak at Call of Duty 8. Tempted? Take a look.
