PhotoSynth for iOS released. Coming to Windows Phone 7 in the future

Microsoft has just announced the availability of the official Photosynth application for Apple iOS devices and the future release of a Windows Phone 7 version. Many have noticed lately that Microsoft Bing’s iOS application offers a lot more features than what is currently available on Windows Phone 7.

Samsung has started to gradually roll-out the official Android 2.3.3 Gingerbread update for the Samsung Galaxy S this past weekend via the Kies desktop software. So far only European users are being notified to update when plugin-in their phones but nothing’s stopping you from doing it manually by downloading the full package to your PC and flashing it via ODIN. This new XWJVB version seems to be really similar to the leaked XWJVK (they do have the same basedband).
