Good friend of Mobile Industry Review (and occasional contributor) Michael Selvidge is amongst the partners running this Kickstarter listing for what promises to be a thoroughly brilliant event. You’ve heard of the Homebrew Computer Club, right? Jobs, Wozniack and so on? They all got together there. The Personal Computer revolution all started there. Sort of. […]
I was reading The Times this morning looking for Bizcrowd ads. I can’t quite remember the advertising schedule we’re operating with the media. I have it written somewhere in a spreadsheet and I routinely keep getting the days and newspapers wrong. So today I bought The Times. I scrolled paged through the paper and didn’t […]
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?
… you should check out this week’s 361 Degrees episode. This week we’re talking about Nokia and Microsoft. I have been a long time Nokia fan — and a long time commentator. I have followed them through thick and thin. I’ve been hugely complimentary and supportive — but I’ve also been intensely direct at times […]
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. […]
I was trying to buy a computer monitor the other day. I was standing at a train platform browsing Amazon via their dedicated app. I was prevented from hitting the ‘one click’ buy button because my 3G Vodafone service kept swapping into E, then into GPRS (that annoying little round circle on the iPhone) and […]
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. And here it is: Microsoft to acquire Nokia’s Devices & Services business, license Nokia’s patents and mapping services Nokia Corporation Stock Exchange Release September 3, 2013 at 06.00 (CET +1) REDMOND, Washington and ESPOO, Finland – Microsoft Corporation and Nokia Corporation today announced that […]
Inflexible logistics are the kiss of death for mobile operators. In today’s always-on, right-FLIPPING-now world, winding up your customers unnecessarily is bad news. Very bad news. Poor Neil Robertson, mobile PR supremo and long time reader has written a blog of his recent experience trying to get hold of an HTC One on Vodafone’s much […]
