Mobile Update For September 24, 2008

The biggest news today has to be Dell shifting all laptops screends to LED displays, a first as far as announcing goes.  Those laptops will start shipping in December.  Look for Apple to make a similar announcement as being the first by shipping in October.  Maybe.
