The Motorola Xoom will not feature MotoBlur after the Illinois-based phone giant reiterated that the 'premier' product will house the Honeycomb operating system. Apple's forthcoming iPad 2 and iPhone 5 will feature Near Field Communication NFC contact-less payment technology, which is said to coincide with an iTunes store revamp.

The Nintendo 3DS' RRP price has been mooted to be around the £230 mark but for a limited time only it can be available for sub £200 in both Aqua Blue and Cosmic Black finishes. The 3DS' rival, the PSP 2, has been the subject of much conjecture over what Sony's update to their handheld console will look like. Claims that a Japanese forum has obtained official leaked pictures will surely add to the anticipation ahead of the PSP2's unveiling this week.

A Facebook mix-up lead to the banning of an innocent user after it was perceived by the social network giant that a Kate Middleton was masquerading as her namesake the fiancée of Prince William. The Apple App store, which surpassed 10 billion downloads this week, has opened a Twitter account to provide updates of the latest add-ons.
