It's time to taste the iPhone Rainbow. I'm Bridget Carey and this is your CNET Update. People are always hungry for news about the next iPhone and we have a fresh batch of rumors on the plastic models that are said to be coming out in the fall. A Chinese type blog says the factory Foxconn has begun making an entry level iPhone in multiple colors. A French website posted photos of what could be the colorful back plates. They are bright lime, green, yellow, and red-- reminds me of Skittles, but these are not the same shades of colors that you'll find in the existing iPod Nano lineup. Also from China, it said that these cheaper iPhones won't be really super cheap. They could be the same cost as an older iPhone 4 or 4S model. The Pebble smartwatch has been a popular kick-starter project, but now it's coming to Best Buy. The smartwatch synchs with iPhones and android phones to show alerts when you gain a text message or a call and it also lets you control music and some apps, like RunKeeper, and last week on one charge, it will be sold at Best Buy stores and online starting on Sunday for $150, but it will only carry the black version at first. The red model arrives in August and you'll have to go to the Pebble website to get the orange, gray, and white colors. If you're a college student shopping for laptops, keep an eye out for different promotions going on. Apple has an early jump on the back-to-school rush and it discounts the price of computers for college students. It also throws in $100 app store gift card for buying a Mac. Students can also get a $50 gift card for buying an iPad or iPhone. Now that Google Reader is a goner, it's time to setup an alternative app to keep up on the latest post from your favorite news sites and blogs. Check out Feebly, Pulse or also the new Dig app on iOS. Google Reader users have until July 15th to download a copy of their favorite feeds before the data is permanently deleted. And also on July 15th, Sony's new 4K TV media player will be hitting stores. It plays ultra high resolution video but you're probably not gonna buy it that's because it only works with the new Sony 4K TVs which start at 5 grand for the 55-inch model and then you have to buy the 4K player for another $500 and that's the discounted price. It includes 10 films and video shorts with 4K resolution. In the fall, Sony will launch a video service, so you can rent 4K movies for $8 of pop. There is just not that much 4K content available right now, so it's worth waiting for the price to go down. But if you like spending money because you just have to be the first to have this new resolution, well, more power to you. That's your tech news update. You could find more details at CNET.com/update. From our studios in New York, I'm Bridget Carey.
