I remember being sat in the news studio of one of the biggest mainstream news providers at 5am, a while back, and asking one of the chaps what the ‘stories’ were going to […]

The global behemoth, Hyundai, has entered the UK mobile handset market. Big time. There’s no toe-in-the-water nonsense from Hyundai. Nope. They’re hitting the market with 2, followed by 10 to 15 new handsets this year. That’s THE FIRST HALF of this year. Come on! A little bit of competition, eh? Plus you might get a […]

Nokia N97 hits the Expansys store

You can pre-order a Nokia N97 this morning at Expansys. Granted, they don’t even have a rough cost yet, but you can sign-up now to be notified the moment they can sell you one. I reckon it’ll be, what, 700 quid plus initially? The 6 month wait is really, really annoying. That’ll fly by though…

Wandering out of a blizzard is the latest version of the Android based mobile to appear, now in the colour of white from T-mobile’s online store.

Truphone hits the Blackberry

Fresh from winning Gadgetfest last week, Truphone is now ready for the Blackberry (The OMmeister has the goss). It’s most certainly beta.

Comes With Music hits 3UK

3UK, previously one of the top electronic music retailers in the UK after iTunes, is embracing Nokia’s Comes With Music offering. Interestingly, it’s hitting their N95 8GB handsets – not the standard 5000 series devices. And that makes a lot of sense. If you already have an N95 8GB then you won’t qualify. I understand […]

I originally thought it was all about symbian only. But Blackberry are exhibiting. So are Motorola, Sony and Samsung. Nokia’s unusually nowhere to be […]
