US Update - Nexus S, RIM, Skyfire, iPad adapter

It’s time to kick back, relax and enjoy your weekend. What better way to start it off than to recap the latest and greatest in the world in tech. In today’s US Update we break down the truth behind the Nexus S contoured display, review RIM’s third quarter sales, preview Skyfire for iPad and more.

The Google Nexus S is a killer device, but a teardown of the handset has revealed that the display night not actually be contoured after all. A total disassembly of the device has revealed the glass is curved, but the actual Super AMOLED display is flat, just like the other Galaxy S smartphones.

RIM has released their third quarter financials and the big shocker is that they shipped 14.2 million units, beating Apple’s 14.1 million. Is this a coincidence or did the Canadian smartphone manufacturer really beat Cupertino’s camp?

The Apple iPad has added a Vevo HD app which brings a library of 25,000 HD music videos to the palm of your hands, without the need for Flash. Also announced today is Skyfire for iPad and we have your video demonstration of the app in action.

Yesterday we showed you the 3-in-1 iPad Camera connection kit, today we do you two better. The new 5-in-1 connection kit adds audio and video output to the mix, turning your iPad into the living room media powerhouse.

Last up this morning is news on a FBI sting which took down four key players trading insider secrets about Apple, Dell, RIM and other top tech firms. The investigation began nearly 18 months ago and we’ve got the details.

That wraps up things this fine morning from the states. Thanks for spending your morning with us as we break the headlines fresh off the press from our side of the world. Until Monday, this is Nick saying over and out.
