HTC HD3 is something we’re all dreaming about and it’s certainly not the HTC HD7. We’re thankful for concepts like the HTC Eerie HD3 below, created by Wallec (wwalczyszyn from Deviantart), since it’s looking incredible and its specifications are mind blowing. The device uses a 4.7 inch AMOLED display, that takes it closer to tablets than smartphones.

It measures 11mm in thickness and comes with a 2GHz Snapdragon processor, 64GB of ROM and 2GB RAM, plus a microSD card slot. HTC Sense can also be seen on the handset, together with Windows 7 Mobile Edition, but you can also go with Android 2.5 or Windows Phone 7. HTC Eerie HD3 supports 4G, EDGE, GPRS and WiFi connectivity and at the back there’s a 12 megapixel camera with autofocus and LED flash.

This new HTC concept phone supports 1080p HD video capture and it has a secondary 1MP camera at the front. If you had to choose between this and the HTC HD7, which would you pick? Imagine a price difference of $100 extra for the HD3…

Peter Roebuck dies aged 55

wat a sad news for all… he s a great writer and a commentator toooooo ………..

Amplify’d from www.espncricinfo.com

Peter Roebuck, the respected cricket commentator and columnist, has died in South Africa.

The Sydney Morning Herald, one of the many newspapers Roebuck wrote for, reported that he had been found dead at the Southern Sun Hotel Newlands in Cape Town.

Roebuck, 55, was in South Africa covering Australia’s ongoing Test tour, including as a radio commentator for the ABC. He was spoken to by local police on his return to the hotel on Saturday night after he had been out to dinner.

“Incredibly sad news. He was an integral part of the Grandstand commentary team and apart from being a magnificent print journalist,” Craig Norenbergs, the ABC Grandstand manager, said. “For us he could describe a game of cricket in such a way that even if you didn’t like the game, you liked the way that he went about his business.”

His managing editor at the Herald, Ian Fuge, called Roebuck’s death a “a devastating blow to all at The Sydney Morning Herald both professionally and personally”.

”Peter was a wonderful writer who was the bard of summer for cricket-loving Australians,” he said. ”He was also an extraordinary bloke who will be sorely missed.”

In addition to his work in print and radio, Roebuck was also a widely read columnist for ESPNcricinfo, contributing his views in both written and audio form. His last column had expressed cautious optimism about the progress of the Australian team. Sambit Bal, editor of ESPNcricinfo, said Roebuck had always pressed the importance of avoiding nationalism in how the game should be viewed.

“He was a rare global voice in the game,” he said. “He used to say that there was too much nationalism in cricket writing. His writing was devoid of any allegiance to nation, team or any player. I cherished his friendship and counsel.”

Roebuck was born in Oxford on March 6, 1956, the son of two schoolteachers and and one of six children. He was attracted to cricket at an early age and grew into an accomplished batsman with Somerset, going on to captain the county to success in the 1980s. He also led an England team to defeat against Holland.

In 335 first-class matches, Roebuck made 17,558 runs at 37.27, with 33 centuries. His playing career was overshadowed to some degree by a bitter and drawn-out feud with other members of the Somerset team, which led to the removal of Joel Garner and Viv Richards from the team and the exit of Ian Botham.

As Roebuck’s cricket developed, so too did his writing. It Never Rains, his journal of the 1983 season, established him as one of cricket’s most insightful voices even as a young batsman, and he would go on to write numerous other books, including an account of England’s Ashes success in Australia in 1986-87.

Australia would play a growing part in Roebuck’s life, as he spent summers there teaching and playing cricket, then graduating into writing for newspapers and commentating on radio. After his first-class playing career ended in 1991, Roebuck shared his time between Australia and South Africa, living in Sydney and Pietermaritzberg.

Ian Chappell, the former Australia captain and fellow commentator, said Roebuck had always provided worthwhile company in the often self-contained, and consumed, world of the press box. “I used to regularly find an excuse to chat to him because I enjoyed his company and always felt I’d learn something from him, and I got to know him better and better down the years,” Chappell said. “He was a bit of a loner but around the press box he was good company and a worthwhile opinion.

“We didn’t talk so much about the game, more about things around the game, like corruption - he always had pretty good contacts - and things like Zimbabwe which he felt pretty strongly about. We’d also talk about players a bit, and I always made a point of seeking him out because I enjoyed his opinions. I enjoyed reading his stuff, at times I read it and didn’t get the point, so he wasn’t exactly Bill O’Reilly, but he was a damn good writer, a colourful writer and he brought other things in life into it.”

Roebuck’s columns were fiercely independent and artfully written, often expressing the contrarian view but at other times articulating the thoughts of many, though in words they could not have found. His views were never more hotly-debated than when the Herald ran a front-page opinion piece in which Roebuck called for the sacking of Ricky Ponting as Australia captain following the acrimonious 2008 SCG Test against India.

It was a measure of his worth to Fairfax as a voice and agenda-setter that the rival News Ltd papers were always wary of what the fearless Roebuck would write, and would wince when he produced, as in the case of the Ponting piece, a view so staunch and so newsworthy that they could do little else but follow it up.

He was outspoken on numerous topics, not least the degeneration of Zimbabwe cricket, and was also a frequent questioner of the game’s administrators and money-men. He wrote critically of the influence of betting, both legal and illegal, within the game, and warned against the proliferation of cricket without meaning or context.

As a man, Roebuck could be prickly, but was always prepared to share his views on the game and on life. In his autobiography, Sometimes I Forgot To Laugh, Roebuck’s father described him. “In orthodox spheres,” he said, “Peter might be regarded as odd, whereas he is merely obscure and oblique. He is an unconventional loner, with an independent outlook on life, an irreverent sense of humour and sometimes a withering tongue.”

Extreme pace the way ahead for Cummins

just 17 years old unbelievable speed ……………bowled brilliantly against mumbai indians …………./

Amplify’d from www.espncricinfo.com

A pacey new-ball bowler, Patrick Cummins made his debut for New South Wales during the 2010-11 season. He was particularly impressive in his maiden Big Bash season - he topped the bowling charts with 11 wickets at 14.09, conceding only 6.59 runs an over. Touted to be a future leader of Australia’s pace attack, he was offered a central contract for 2011-12 in June, becoming the youngest player to be contracted since the current system was introduced in 1998. And in September 2011 he was named in Australia’s Twenty20 and ODI squads for the tour to South Africa.
