According to a recent e-mail from Medscape, the Medscape Mobile iPhone app recently got several updates. I've been running this app on my iPod touch and it's been a nice pocket resource.
Many of my readers are wondering when Medscape Mobile is coming to Android. Several rumors suggested that it might get released before the end of the year, but my gut tells me that it's coming out in the first quarter of 2011.
