The week stared off with a bang, with the London launch of Call of Duty: Black Ops. We were there, and snapped plenty of photos to prove it. That’s not all the photographic evidence of the week gone by. Read on for photos of all the tech we’ve had our hands on this week.

The official Call of Duty: Black Ops launch party was held in Battersea Power Station, making for some great snaps, as you can see. Elsewhere we reviewed the LG Optimus, HTC 7 Mozart, BlackBerry Bold 9780 and had a good look at other tech, which you can see for yourself in the photo gallery above. As usual hit the links below to see more of where the above snaps came from.

The week is over. Been away? Not to worry. You can catch up on all the best tech stories you’ve missed from the past seven days right here in our bite-sized news roundup. Read on…

It’s been a big week in gaming, with the launch of Call of Duty: Black Ops. But how did its sales do in comparison to Microsoft Kinect, the other recent major gaming launch? We’ve also had word on the iPad 2, the lack of Flash available on the Toshiba Folio 100 (until the late update), and news that the Queen has joined Facebook. For more check out the links below:

Call of Duty: Black Ops off to a flyer
The much-anticipated shooter sold an estimated 3.6m copies in the US in one day, compared to 475,000 Kinect units sold in two days across the pond.

Call of Duty: Black Ops review
It’s selling like hot pastries. But is it any good? Absolutely. Be sure to check out our review.

iOS 4.2 delayed?
The new Apple OS was said to be hitting the iPad, iPod Touch and iPhones this week, but it hasn’t turned up yet. But it could early next week.

Palm Pre 2 UK price and date official
The Palm Pre 2 will cost £399 in the UK when it goes on sale on Monday 15 November.

PS3 LoveFilm streaming is here
LoveFilm has arrived on the PS3. Subscribe to the service and you’ll be able to stream from over 2,000 films.

iPad 2 advert already filmed?
That’s the word that arose this week. It was reportedly shot by British photographer/director David Sims, who has previously delivered ads for fashion houses, Pepe Jeans and Burberry.

Queen joins Facebook
With the Royal Family Facebook page that went live at the beginning of the week. Remember to curtsy.

Toshiba Folio 100 Flash fail rectified
A fair few customers expected to pick up their Toshiba Folio 11 with Flash-built in, but it doesn’t come pre-loaded with Flash at all, though Toshiba says this is marked on the box. A further delay in getting out a Flash update further angered customers this week. Luckily the 100 Flash update finally arrived in beta.

Rockstar’s next big thing?
The Grand Theft Auto developer’s record is incredibly good, so believe us when we say you’ll be hearing lots more about its latest – LA Noire. Check out the first trailer here.
