It’s Day One of Mobile World Congress in Barcelona and I’m in the UK, getting organised for my flying visit to the exhibition tomorrow. I’ve spent the evening reading the various different press releases from Samsung and wondered just how they were managing the Unpacked Galaxy S5 announcements on YouTube. I searched “Samsung Galaxy S5” […]
Almost every team member has at least 3 primary mobile handsets! In this category, we profile devices and related wireless infrastructure.
Today’s FT is reporting that… Samsung is opening 60 stores across Europe to sell its mobile phones, tablets, laptops and wearable technology in partnership with Carphone Warehouse, the UK retailer. By working with Carphone Warehouse to create a store concept, the South Korean technology group will compete directly with Apple, whose flagship high-street shops have […]
I’ve been meaning to get this one blogged for a little while. I was giving some thought over the Christmas period to my best device of 2013. (And I should point out: Although I’ve used the word ‘device’, I also mean the accompanying service.) EE’s 4G service has been nothing short of phenomenal. I’ve been […]
It’s about time I stopped using the noddy BT wireless phone when I’m working at home. I often have to participate in lots of conference calls so I really need a headset. Not only is it useful to be able to bash away on the keyboard during a call to make notes, it’s also a […]
I popped into the Covent Garden Apple Store this evening to buy a new MacBook Pro laptop. I decided to buy there-and-then because I needed the utility. I wanted the machine immediately rather than waiting. It turns out that this is perhaps the wrong approach for me because I really don’t enjoy the standard experience. […]

Google, on the other hand, specializes in advertising, and all the money that they make from those little blue links for cheap Canadian […]
Maybe it’s just a very big hand?
A question that is bothering me. I walked by the EE store in Islington this afternoon and saw this sign outside: Isn’t that meant to be impossible in the first week of an iPhone launch?
Have you been seeing folk with Samsungs Facetiming in the street? I have. I am routinely witnessing this almost daily in and around London. I was in Scotland the other day on business and one of the ladies ahead of me in the taxi queue at Edinburgh Airport flipped out her S4 and proceeded to […]
So the latest set of iPhones will hit the market later this month. There will be queues. There will be slightly tame excitement. There will be headlines about millions of devices flying off shelves. A few readers have been asking where the hell my opinions have been, given the launch took place 48 hours ago. […]
And here is the other press release, substantially similar to the last one. I wanted to post both. No commentary from me yet. I’m still digesting. Have a read: Nokia to sell Devices & Services business to Microsoft in EUR 5.44 billion all-cash transaction Nokia Corporation Stock Exchange Release September 3, 2013 at 06.00 (CET […]
No joking, no April Fools, the press release just came through.
