iPad 3 talk has hit the headlines today as rumours are abound that the iPad 3 will contain a 2 GHz dual-core processor after Samsung yesterday announced its intention to do the same in smartphones by 2012. By the time the iPad 3 is released however, the Samsung Galaxy Tab 10.1 should have already hit the UK with Vodafone Australia preparing the tablet for pre-order with a view to begin shipping on 1 May.

BlackBerry Playbook, RIM's answer to the iPad launched in the US today for $500, while UK retailer Phones4U opened online BlackBerry PlayBook pre-registration.

White iPhone 4 anticipation continues to rise (well, for some), and a leaked video apparently showed off an updated iPhone iOS and Spotlight on the handset. The brightly-hued handset also made a brief appearance on mobile network Three's white iPhone 4 holding page before swiftly pulling the plug. Not without revealing a few more details mind you.

Finally, in a round-up of the other notable news stories of the day, it was revealed that half of Britons regret their latest choice of mobile phone with many getting angry at the quick rate of updated handsets. That could well see an Android backlash after it was revealed that Google's OS powers four in ten smartphones.
