Our BlykWatch column by Ricky Chotai is coming shortly. He’s got so much stuff moving with Blyk at the moment that, short term, we’re swapping to publishing weekly. The biggest issue is the multiple texts problem — texts are being duplicated multiple times — and it’s driving him and the other users nuts. I did […]
The PocketSurfer, heavily marketed around the UK recently, is heading to Uganda shortly. I’m sure it will be a super success. It’s back-lit screen, long battery and inclusive no-nonsense data package will be a boon for many in the country. New Vision Online : Fastest wireless pocket surfing device to hit market in July POCKET-SURFER, […]
reporting that UK aggregator and mobile services firm, WIN plc, is now offering WAP (or mobile web) intranets for companies. I think it’s a wicked idea. The key issue is how security works to protect private company information being accessed by non-employees. WIN Plc is enabling UK enterprises and brands to set up intranet and […]
Unlimited Drinks London is tomorrow night. I am really looking forward to it. It’s going to be brilliant. If you haven’t already emailed to get on the guest list, please do so at the link above. We’re extremely busy — well over our 150 person limit, however I’m working on the basis that some people […]
How could you? Did you? Did you forget that it’s iMonday? When Steve Jobs takes the stage Pricing is my number one query. I want to know what the new iPhone will be priced at. Second, I want to know how they’re going to handle upgrades. If you’ve got an ‘official’ iPhone from o2, can […]
It’s a little known fact that 3’s business service plans are phenomenal. They’ve been ratcheted up as of this morning, putting the squeeze on other operator pricing models.

I’ve been talking to everyone and anyone about Basildon, recently. I’m doing some work in the town for a client and it’s both a joy and a shocker to get off the train at Basildon Station. It’s joyous to be out in the provinces, although, Essex isn’t exactly Hartlepool (or the like) but it is […]
Get in! If you were one of the pioneer users of Mobyko when the serviced launched last year (you’ll probably have taken a look at the service after one of our reviews or mentions here at SMS Text News), you’ll probably have got an email like this one: On the 15 June 2008, it will […]
It’s not often that you’ll see a mobile network take a punt on ad-funded content. Not often at all. I’m trying to think of a specific example that doesn’t involve the operator’s own portal ad system. Greystripe, the world’s first and leading ad-supported mobile games and applications distribution platform, have announced a deal with German […]
Lisa Nova, one of Youtube’s biggest videostars, has published a new character recently… The Twitter Whore. Heh. Excellent. Have a watch below: You can follow Lisa Nova here.
We’ve kept the coverage of the new Apple iPhone rather light here on SMS Text News. Yes, it’s coming on Monday. Yes it’s 3G. Yes there’s going to be a whole host of delights to feast on. Two non-Apple operators have told me there’s a nano version coming. How that will manifest itself, I don’t […]
