So, you've either purchased a Streak, or you're anxiously awaiting your own here in the US. Fantastic. Now what? If you've just over $100 to spend and even a pinch of smarts, you'll give strong consideration to Logitech's diNovo Mini. Though launched around two years ago, this portable Bluetooth keyboard looks like a match made in heaven for Dell's newfangled 5-inch smartphone, with the cover holding the Streak (almost) perfectly in order to create a makeshift Android laptop. Better still, the Bluetooth device pairs seamlessly with Dell's doodad, and both the keys and finger pad operate sans any major issues. But hey, it's not like you ought to be taking our word for it -- head on past the break to see the magic happen on video, and dig down in that source link for even more inspiration. It might just convince your cold, hardened heart that love does indeed exist. 






An ambient light sensor automatically controls the keyboard's backlighting.

The keys always glow orange, but the ClickPad (Logitech's name for the round touchpad) displays a green directional pad in "media remote mode" and glows orange in "cursor mode." A sliding switch to the left of the pad makes switching between modes quick and easy.

The diNovo Mini is powered by a rechargeable 930mAh li-ion battery. A full chargetakes about 4 hours and is reportedly good for up to one month of use. A 10-minute quick charge will supposedly provide enough power for about one day of use.

When the Streak and diNovo Mini are connected, keyboard shortcuts appear in the standard menus of the Streak. Unfortunately, I couldn't get any of them to work because there isn't a Menu key or anything equivalent to it on the keyboard.



This is pretty confusing considering it is just Qik and Fring offering the same service for the green bot right now, so we trotted along to Adobes London office to get a closer look at this demo. As with many things in life, not all went as planned as you can see after the break video stream froze up on several occasions, but then again Adobe's Mark Doherty only spent three days cooking this simple app. 

While Nokia's just waiting for a Linux SDK before it can start porting Flash apps to its devices within 2010, Adobe implied that it's still waiting for two other vendors to respond Palm's already been shown a Flash build running on web OS devices, and it's just a matter of the company signing up for Adobe's device certification system; RIM, on the other hand, is a bit more vague, but we were told it's definitely interested in both Air and Flash. And here's the surprise of the day: no comment on Flash for iOS. Check the Embedded Video Down there from

gsmarena 001 Adobes FlashTime to bring free p2p videocalling to all Androids out there, a touch of sarcasm too

FlashTime for Android is far from a finished product/service but it serves as a nice proof of the power of the Adobe’s platform. What can I say, I sure hope I see that P2PChatMobile.swf application freely running on Android smartphones out there.
