They say all good things come to an end, and users on Three’s One Plan will soon be told it’s game over, marking an end to the unlimited tethering facility that was exceptional value for money, but arguably totally unsustainable.
A crowd-sourced survey conducted by OpenSignal in conjunction with Which?, today reveals the current state of the UK mobile phone network. Based on over 67 million data readings provided by users running the OpenSignal app on their Android or iOS device, the survey also shows that in the […]
I promised more photos from the Xperia Z3, and here are over 100 pictures, which include indoor, outdoor, daylight, night and near total darkness situations.
The Hudl 2 looks set to be a mighty fine tablet for the money, with a full review to come soon.
A year ago, Tesco entered the arena with its own brand tablet, the Hudl. Unlike other low-cost Android tablets, the Hudl had one big difference: it was good. Good enough to come top in a group test of budget tablets that I wrote last year. And now it is ready to launch its […]

This year I didn’t go to IFA. No press trip, no pre-briefings under embargo with the opportunity to write everything up days before. So, like most people, I’ve been looking on as an ordinary consumer. But of course, I still have my contacts within the industry, and taking more […]
Our friends at Btekt have been hands-on with some of the new Sony devices and posted their videos already, even as the products are still being announced at IFA.
It’s nice to see that prepay users are now being offered the chance to enjoy 4G (Vodafone recently allowing its own prepay users 4G access), and having been first to offer superfast speeds to pay as you go users, EE has now made some further tweaks this morning. […]
Not long to go until all the new Xperia devices are announced, along with a new QX range of attachable camera lenses, and new wearables are unveiled. But, for now, here are some official press photos that were obtained by Xperiablog.net ahead of the press event that can be […]
