Every time I walk by a standard operator shop that isn’t EE, I have to cringe. I can’t avoid it. This morning on the train platform I caught sight of an advert in the Metro newspaper from O2. It read, “Change your phone as often as phones change. WTM (World Travel Market) is the planet’s leading travel festival. I’ve been attending for the last three years and last year I participated in my first panel discussion there. There’s still a lot of love in the room for the Q10. I knew there would be. I KNEW it! Fundamentally, I am faster at typing on a physical keyboard. News just in from the Carphone Warehouse team: You can be amongst the first in the UK with a BlackBerry Q10 if you head over to the company’s concession in Selfridges, London, this weekend. Are you ready for some real magic? I was exposed to some on Monday night when I went along to the O2 Refresh launch. I came across this Folding USB solar power cell on Kickstarter the other week and thought I’d pick one up. O2 UK has launched a new way of doing business for its contract (or “post pay”) consumers. I’ve been rather silent of late. I never want to actually force myself to write here on Mobile Industry Review. I’ve been pretty vocal recently about how shit the Sky Go Extra service is. I am astonished that the team there even let it out the building alive. In an utterly unbelievable move, Nokia today announced that the company’s existing Lumia range of smartphones will be joined by a reinvigorated Nokia Essentials range. Those who’ve been reading MIR for a while will recall that I recently bought an iPad Mini. I ordered a £15. This is a post for Rafe Blandford, top man, editor, publisher, super-genius Nokia know-it-all and the man behind such sites as All About Symbian and All About Windows Phone. I’d very much welcome your suggestions for public relations firms (and/or individuals) working in the mobile space. Right now I’m sitting on a train carriage surrounded by people using laptops. I’m the only one using an iPad (and a physical keyboard). Yesterday Vodafone splashed in the Metro about their all new (well, sort of) wifi offering for customers using the London Underground system.
If you recall I have been trying to get Sky Go Extra to work. The idea is simple: If you’re a Sky customer you are meant to be able to download a selection (admittedly limited) of episodes for consumption on your mobile device of choice.
Have you been reading the various news reports about the US regulator considering the possibility of actually allowing folk to use their Tablets and Smartphones during take off and landing? I really do have to calm myself every time I’m on the plane and I have to “stow” my iPad or smartphone because of stupid [.
I’m pretty sure that BT doesn’t get a lot of online orders at 230am most days. Last night however I thought I would see how the march towards BT Infinity was coming on.
A video conference? From a British train? Almost impossible for more than 20 seconds, surely? (I found this advert on the train to Basingstoke)
