Using SMS for the greater good!

I love it when I see mobile phones being put to good use, and I also love it when say for important issues, mobile phones are being utilised to capture a target audience in the best sense and way possible. I was browsing around my daily choice of news reads, when I came across an […]

Why pay for premium wall-papers, when I get them for free?

Is just the question I’m asking! You see, the other day I was sitting in the School Library working hard on a piece of History work, when a class came in and began working on the available computers. The class was a mixture of boys and girls who were thirteen/fourteen years young. A group of […]

Where’s the mobile awareness gone?

Wow! Doesn’t time just fly by? I’ve been away for a month – organising myself with school and the various activities I’m involved in, and it feels like forever! Never fear though, because now I’m back. Well, for once a week that is! Now school’s are a hostile environment (well, at least mine is), and […]

What’s Your Favourite Mobile, EVER?

A thought for the weekend, and considering this horrendous weather, a thought that might take you back a few years! I’m asking, what has been your favourite mobile phone, you have owned, ever! I’ll start with mine. Now for me, this is an incredibly tough choice, it’s between the Nokia 3310, and the Nokia 3200! […]

Vodafone announce Pre-Pay Deal!

Vodafone have announced their first pre-pay deal in over two years. Luckily for us pre-pay consumers out there, it sounds like a bloody good offer too. For just ten pounds per month, users will be entitled to unlimited free evening and weekend texts. Obviously this will be in-accordance to a Fair Use Policy of some […]

If there was one thing you could change, what would it be?

A thought I’ve pondered over a lot. If I had my way I would change a lot (not only in Mobile), but in the rest of the world. But let’s forget about that; let’s think purely Mobile, purely communications, and sales. What would you change? What has to annoy me the most with mobiles, especially […]

Use your mobile as your Oyster card!

That is just one idea that has been floating around Mobile Industry Review for sometime; and it seems like after a trial period, people like it! The Near Field Communications (NFC) which O2 had been trialling with Nokia has had some optimistic results. Apparently nine out of ten (90%) of the five hundred trialists said […]

The iPhone: It didn’t work, but I think I like it!

Nearly two weeks ago, Ewan announced he was sending me an iPhone, and simultaneously I announced I really do not like the device. My ramble about the iPhone only summed up a few of my displeasures about the device, but I was more than willing to accept I maybe wrong. Firstly, I should point out, […]

Mobile Shop staff… You amuse me!

No seriously! Despite how rubbish you can be (note, not all are that rubbish), you have this ability to make me laugh, even when it’s not funny! You see, on Wednesday I took a trip down to my local high street, a busy one at that; in all I would hazard a guess that there […]

Oh no… Not another Blyk!

It has been reported that Comtel, an Australian telecom firm is to launch SMSpup: Mobile, an MNVO offering subsidised tariffs in return for adverts. Unlike Blyk the service is not completely free, and that they will receive around a 65% discount on pre-paid tariffs. Similar to Blyk customers who “opt-in” will receive MMS and SMS […]

Mobile Networks… You’ll never cease to amaze me!

I’m being serious here. Since my time here as Mobile Industry Review I’ve read hundreds of news articles on the latest goings on with the mobile industry. Yes a lot of the so called news is terribly “boring”, but every now and then, I have to sit back laugh, and ask “why”? Ricky kindly sent […]

Apple all is not well, is it?

It’s all a bit gloomy for Apple really. Julia reported last week about Apple being sued, and today the Advertising Standards Authority have rapped them for some dodgy advertising. Apparently the claim that the iPhone can access “all the parts of the internet” is giving a misleading impression to consumers, according to ASA. This has […]
