Loaded: Google gets New

2:00 /

Facebook phone rumors are back, RIM's purported tablet could be out next week, and Google launches its New site to track the search giant's latest products and features.

It's Thursday, September 23rd. I'm Mark Lice and it's time to get loaded. Facebook Phone rumors are back. Now, Bloomberg is reporting that Facebook is working on two handsets with phone maker INQ. One will have a touchscreen and the second phone will use a keyboard and both will run Android. They're slated to hit Europe in the first half of next year and then come to the US in the second half with AT&T rumored to be the carrier. The phones are said to be priced at less than $100. Research in Motion could be unveiling their rumored BlackPad tablet by next week at the Developer Conference in San Francisco. Rumors of the tablet came out a month ago and speculation is that it will have a seven-inch screen with one or two built-in cameras and run a new OS developed by QNX Software. RIM has not commented on this. If you wanna keep track of everything new in Google, the company is launching a new location called Google New. It's a place where anyone can find the latest products and new features from Google. If you go to Google.com/newproducts, you'll see a layout of some of the most recent additions to Google. And Blockbuster has filed for bankruptcy today. The largest movie retail company in the US began shutting down over 1500 stores in the past year. Blockbuster did release their own mail rental service but it was too late in the game to compete with Netflix. The company's remaining 3000 stores will stay open and active for now. And a GPS tracking shoe is nothing new but the Smart Shoe from GTX Corp. is marketed as a device for people with Alzheimer's. The idea is to help keep track of people with the disease and, of course, this could be useful if you were maybe going on a hiking trip or a blind date. Those are all your headlines for today. I'm Mark Licea for CNET.com and you've just been loaded.
