HTC's launch conference was yesterday but with all the hubbub surrounding the two new Android handsets then some things went slightly overlooked. Also shown yesterday was the HTC Media Link box, a DNLA streaming kit that peaked from the covers of mystery. Elsewhere on the HTC front T-Mobile has announced it will offer the HTC Desire HD from launch. The killer blow, it will be available for free on contract.

Sony vs. Microsoft: the gaming battle is to kick into overdrive tomorrow as the PlayStation Move motion control peripheral from Sony sets to launch. Both companies have had a jump on the competing however as Sony announce the PS3 is to get 3D Blu-ray capabilities on September 21st the very same day that Microsoft unveil brain training for Kinect. We think Sony takes that round.
