Amazon leaks prices on an all too regular basis for us to be fully surprised by this latest unearthing but that doesn't stop us getting excited. Appearing on the website, the recently announced HTC Desire Z has been given a £429.99 price tag and October 11th launch date. Elsewhere in the mobile kingdom, Microsoft has published its ridiculously prudish developer's guidelines for Windows Phone 7. Anyone hoping to see a nipple, buttock or impaling in Phone 7 apps will be left bitterly disappointed.

Halo: Reach mania has gripped the country's, nah, the world's gaming population since its launch on Tuesday. The latest indication of just how popular Reach is, Microsoft announced the latest Halo title took $200 million in its opening 24 hours. The Halo franchise wasn't the only market leader furthering its lead over the competition today; however, Facebook has officially launched Facebook Places in the UK offering the same location-specific service available in the US since last month.
