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 [...]
O2 are rolling out super fast 3G coverage to “major cities” of the UK.

T-Mo are back in the business of re-branding Far Eastern phones as their own á la Orange and have today launched the 'Vivacity' handset. But it is not just the act of re-branding that is similar to it's Everything Everywhere stablemate: the Vivacity appears to be an Orange San Francisco 2 with an iPhone-esque chassis. The specifications are identical down to the 5 megapixel camera, Android 2.3 Gingerbread and memory/SD card expansion. The Orange variant looks sexier, but they will Read more [...]
