AM News: YouTube Gets 4bn Daily Views, Sony S & P Tablets to Get ICS Soon, Lumia 900 in UK

YouTube should put another feather in its cap with daily page views crossing the four billion a day mark. The Google owned site has long since been the benchmark for all video sharing sites - and today it stands head and shoulders above its competition.

The two Sony tablets, the Tablet S and the Tablet P will get their updates by Spring 2012 according to two reports that emerged on the Verge. It follows a similar confirmation on a Sony forum in the UK late last year. The update should come out roughly at the same time as that for the Sony Ericsson Xperia smartphones.

UK retailer Carphone Warehouse briefly put up a registration page for the successor of the Lumia 800, the Lumia 900, on its website before pulling it down. The page, which can still be found in Google's cache, claims that the phone will be launch in June 2012 and will come with a 4.3-inch AMOLED touchscreen display with a WVGA resolution and covered with Corning Gorilla glass.

In an attempt to retain their top recruits, a number of Silicon Valley companies including Apple and Google have signed illegal "no poaching" deals with each other, the US Department of Justice has revealed.

HTC will almost certainly release a new handset at Mobile World Congress which will take over the Desire S and is currently codenamed Primo. According to, the smartphone will be a mere 9mm thick, will have a 3.7-inch Super AMOLED screen (presumably with a WVGA resolution) and a Corning Gorilla glass layer.
