By now everybody under the sun probably knows about the iPhone 4's Death Grip issue. One of the solutions is to use one of Apple's Bumper casings that they're now offering for free, or you could always just put some electrical tape to cover that sensitive part. Of course, sticking an ugly piece of tape on your shiny new iPhone 4 isn't the sexiest thing around, but what if you could do just that, and make a joke of it at the same time? That's probably what the folks who came up with the Antenn-aid for the iPhone 4 were thinking when they designed it. It's a band-aid of sorts to protect your iPhone 4 from tbe Death Grip, and still look cool and funky at the same time. It's priced at just $4.99 cents for a six-pack, and you'll be able to choose from a variety of stickers. Maybe Apple should have offered these instead of the bumper casing.

Panasonic has accidentally leaked the details of its upcoming Lumix LX5, which will be available in black or white versions. This updated model offers a more sensitive sensor than the older LX3, as it's capable of handling ISO up to 12,800 as opposed to the older model's ISO 3,200. The lens is rated at 24-90mm, while still offering the juicy f2.0 maximum aperture. Other details include support for 720p video recording in AVCHD Lite, and a 10.1-megapixel sensor. While pricing and shipping date for the LX5 haven't been confirmed yet, it's expected that Panasonic will be unveiling the Lumix LX5 on July 21st.
Many folks who recently managed to access the Hulu Plus preview might have noticed that they haven't been able to get access to the entire video catalog, as it turns out they're only getting a subset of all the videos available on the website. This might be a little disappointing for PS3 users as they currently need to have paid for the PlayStation Plus subscription service in order to access Hulu Plus. Turns out that this limitation is due to Hulu's licensing for TV shows and episodes, as the licensing for free episodes doesn't seem to apply to the $10 monthly subscription, which prevents Hulu from offering its full catalog on its dedicated apps. Hulu still hasn't said whether it'll be providing the complete Hulu library via Hulu plus, but hopefully it’s on the way.

There's some bad news for folks who are patiently waiting for the white iPhone 4, as word is out that the delay for the device is due to the Lens Technology having some trouble getting the right opacity and thickness for the pure white paint that Apple wants on the glass panels. Apparently the factory is still busy working out the right combination of paint thickness and opacity to ensure that the next sub-contractor has enough clearance for the digitizer overlay, while still maintaining the level of white that Apple desires. Considering how important the looks of the iPhone is, hopefully the manufacturer will be able to get it spot on and we'll see the white iPhone 4 being offered sooner rather than later.

Despite the many leaked pictures, the BlackBerry 9800 (or Torch) still hasn't been officially announced by RIM. Now pictures of the replacement hardware keyboard for said device have started to surface on the site of a reseller, further indicating that the BlackBerry 9800 slider is nearing a release, with rumors pointing towards an August or September launch, possibly via AT&T. From previous reports, the BlackBerry 9800 is expected to sport a 5-megapixel camera, BlackBerry OS 6, 512MB of RAM, and a touchscreen display.
Screenshots of the upcoming Symbian^4 operating system have surfaced, giving interested folks a pretty good idea of what to expect from it. Noticeable features include a permanent, iPhone-like status bar at the top, and multiple home screens. The application launcher was also pictured, and shows applications being sorted into categories for easy management. The interface seems to be quite touch-friendly, which should be great for touchscreen devices, and a menu showing a task switcher were also pictured. Word is that Symbian^4 should be shipping not too long after Symbian^3, possibly by the end of 2010 or early 2011. Nokia will obviously be using the new OS in its devices, but Samsung, Sony Ericsson and some other partners are also expected to be embrace it too.
