Huawei are one of the biggest telecommunications equipment companies in the world. They are huge in China although their kit is used the world over. Chances are if you are a BT Broadband customer you are using modems build by them. Huawei make no bones about their desire to become one of the biggest smartphone manufacturers in the world, and a couple of years ago they started their assault on the European market. I reviewed the G300 and found it to be a stunning budget range phone. The Huawei Read more [...]
Rejoice UK Androiders: the Nexus 4 is back in stock on the Google Play store. I am writing up my review this weekend on the Nexus 4 but suffice to say it is one of the best possible examples of mobile phone technology you can get your mitts on. Go order now at Google Play.
The Verge is reporting that LG does not see an issue with the supply of the perenially out of stock Google Nexus 4. "An official speaking to the Chosun Ilbo has said that production is proceeding as planned at the Pyeongtaek plant in South Korea, and denied that there is any supply issue."

It is a sure sign of the times when the competition is outpacing Apple’s iPad. A once irrepressible gloat factor of the iPad’s ‘retina’ screen has now been given its marching orders with the Nexus 10. Samsung have upped the resolution to produce a stunning 300 pixels per inch (ppi) which makes the iPad 3, on a specification level at least, seem lacking. Of course, in reality this makes little difference but far be it from me to give Apple a free pass. Numbers and facts speak for themselves Read more [...]
O2 in the UK have an exclusive on the Google Nexus 4 which was unveiled on Monday. They get to be the first UK mobile network to offer the Android phone for 30 days, and to celebrate they are offering the first 50 customers in the queue an LG TV. No word on what sort of TV but it is still a TV! They will also be running an @O2 Twitter competition for the first few weeks of release and awarding TVs to those with the new Android phone who are prepared to jump through their hoops like a circus monkey. On Read more [...]
