With Three about to increase the price of the SIM-only One Plan, rising to £20 per month on a 12-month contract, and £22 on a 30-day rolling contract, Virgin Media has announced an additional VIP tariff that could give Three a run for its money.
As long as I’ve got my 4G enabled SIM, I’ll continue to do testing as I move around London day and night.
As Three begins the process of activating users for its 4G network, I headed into London to do some speed tests and put Three’s 4G service up against EE and O2, as well as pitting 4G versus 3G.
I’m a TalkTalk customer, and a happy and contented one at that, so I was quite pleased to hear the announcement today that it will be the first (and only) company to provide a range of tools to avoid those unwanted calls at no extra cost.
My 4G-activated SIM for Three has arrived! Unfortunately I don’t have 4G at home, so over the coming days I’ll be out and about to do some testing and comparisons, both against Three’s standard DC-HSPA service, as well as other networks (EE & O2). Unfortunately I don’t currently […]
Google has launched Google Play editions of the Motorola G, but I really can’t see the point whatsoever.
The Motorola X, first announced in the US last August, is now coming to the UK from February 1st.
Sony has today quietly launched two new Xperia smartphones to add to its portfolio; the Xperia E1 and Xperia T2 Ultra
Motorola has today announced that Android 4.4 (KitKat) is now rolling out to UK and European users of the Moto G, one day before it is due to make another announcement that could see the launch of the flagship Moto X in the UK.
Three has confirmed all of its subscribers will gain access to 4G by mid-February, as well as allowing a select group of bloggers a chance to do some speed tests.
After Samsung announced two new killer ‘PRO’ tablets at CES, perhaps the biggest news is that it has finally axed the obsolete Android menu button. Better late than never…
Sony today announced a ‘mini’ version of its current flagship without cutting back on features like its rivals, so much so that it opted to call its new device the Z1 Compact.
Link: Nvidia unveils its scarily powerful Tegra K1 mobile chip I was lucky enough to attend Nvidia’s lavish press launch for Tegra 4 this time last year at Palms Casino, Las Vegas. Unfortunately, despite being blown away by the potential of Tegra 4 (and the then named Project Shield), […]
Pebble – now in steel! Due to be announced today at CES 2014. The photo above was apparently taken from a post on the new tech site re/code, which accidentally posted its ‘first look‘ story a bit early. Perhaps the link will work later, so keep trying. As […]
Three didn’t do the best job of launching its 4G network this December. In fact, bar a few thousand users, nobody will even get a chance until the new year. But, I managed to spend some time to find out what’s happening and why it should be worth waiting a few more weeks.
Motorola’s best chance of success to date lies in the budget Moto G (and it’s great news for all of us)
This week Motorola announced the Moto G, an Android smartphone at an incredibly low price. But it isn’t like any other cheap Android phone that has come before it.
These days the net is full of warnings about scams. In many cases, the warnings ARE the scam, by trying to get the whole world to pass on the email about some urban myth that adapt as time goes on. However, this warning is very real and quite […]
I set this site up way back in 2010 with no real intention to actually put much on it. As much as anything else, it was to store some basic information about myself, and keep me up to speed on using WordPress. But at the end of 2013 […]
