Bose Intros New MIE2 Earphones

At last. Bose has made some changes to their earphones and added three new models, the MIE2, MIE2i and the IE2. The IE2 are made for portable players while both the MIE2/i are made for making calls and listening to music as well. What does the "i" stand for? Well that's just to let you know that the MIE2i are fully compatible with Apple's line of iDevices. It's very disappointing that Bose did not make these new models noise isolating and just stuck with the old ear tips that do not isolate any outside noise. Bose did however made some noticeable changes to their ear tips, the StayHear tips are made so that they will stay in your ear while you exercise. The IE2 will be available on August 23rd with a price tag of $99.95. The MIE2 will run you an extra $30, with the same date availability. The MIE2i will only be available in October.

Google Holding Mobile Event Today

Google is going to be holding an event today in their San Francisco offices at 12PM PST (9PM British Time), where they are going to be “unveiling a couple of cool new mobile features”. The last time they held an event similar to this, they unveiled Google Navigation, which was a great addition to Android. So hopefully they will announce something on par with Google Nav.

The event could be the unveiling of the Google music service which we’ve been expecting since Google I/O. And if this is indeed what is being announced today, it will be the first step for Google to take a bite out of Apple’s music business, (No pun intended!) and could convert iPhone users locked in the iTunes universe to Android. However, I do not think that it will be the launch of Android 3.0. Mainly because it is to soon after 2.2 was announced at Google I/O.

There are some rumours floating around of them releasing the Nexus Two with Gingerbread 3.0, but again, this is probably not going to happen as we would of seen some sort of leak by now.

R.I.P Nexus One


Widely believed  to be the best phone among the geek community, the Nexus One is coming the end of its life. As Google is no longer going to make its own Android handset and they have just received its last shipment of handsets. The Nexus One never really caught on outside of the android and geek community, even though it is a great handset and probably the one of the best phones available at the moment.

However, Google will keep selling them in the UK through Vodafone, and through KI in Korea. But in N.America, it will no longer be available unless you are a registered Google developer, then you can get it through Google’s partners. It will still be the official Google developer phone and it will still get the latest Android OS before any other phone.
