LG’s New Chocolate Has a UK Release Date!

It has been the subject of our dreams for several months now, where we’ve been teased with pictures, videos and hints of the specification, before now, when LG has finally given us what we want: chocolate, chocolate and more chocolate!  We are of course, talking about the BL40, LG’s latest Black Label Series mobile phone and the second in their range to wear the Chocolate name. Just before the weekend, LG announced the BL40 was ready for launch and Europe would be seeing the phone from mid-September, with a worldwide roll-out continuing after this.  Just in case you haven’t been […]

10 Stunning Camera Phones

It’s hard to believe that 2004 was the year when the first phone to feature a one megapixel camera was launched in the UK, especially as we are now preparing for the onslaught of 12 megapixel models, all with as many features onboard as a normal compact camera.  Discussion about whether the camera phone will ever take pictures of high enough quality to replace a separate camera will rage forever, but whatever anyone says, with the right hardware, a camera phone can take some amazing pictures!  Here’s ten stunning camera phones, including currently available models, some classics and one future […]

Sony Ericsson Satio

By now, everyone should be aware that Sony Ericsson Satio is the offical name for the Idou, a phone which Sony Ericsson proudly showed off during Mobile World Congress back in February. Fast forward seven months and the Satio’s launch is closing in, making it a great time to have a look at this smart new handset. The Satio represents several firsts for Sony Ericsson, namely a 12.1 megapixal camera – the highest count in thier range – and the use of Symbian OS, S60 5th edition, the same as can be found on the Nokia 5800 XpressMusic and the […]

Top Ten Mobile Phone News Stories of the Week – 4th September

The first week of September has been a really exciting one, with three new Nokias and the X2 all being made official, however, let’s take a look at some of the other stories which may have passed us by. 1.  Sony Ericsson Surprise Everyone with the Xperia Pureness! Yes, it’s the other phone that was pictured with the Xperia X3!  Now renamed the Pureness, Sony Ericsson are promoting the phone as a ‘work of art’ rather than a simple mobile phone.  Details are scarce at the moment, as it popped up at a business meeting rather than its own launch […]

Sony Ericsson Xperia X2 Becomes Official

Today, Sony Ericsson have made the Xperia X2 official, joining Nokia’s effort in making the first week of September one of the most exciting in terms of new releases we’ve had since June.  The X2 is the successor to the Xperia X1, the flawed but beautifully built QWERTY smartphone from last year. The Xperia X2 retains the touchscreen side-slider design, but has had an overhaul where it most needed it, the operating system.  Now that Microsoft have dated Windows Mobile 6.5, everyone is free to announce their handsets running it, and Sony Ericsson appear to be the first to to […]

The Nokia X3 Also Announced at Nokia World

It’s the second Nokia Xseries mobile phone, and also the second to share its name with a BMW SUV, to be launched at Nokia World, but instead of being a range topper with features and a price tag to match, the X3 brings classy looks and XpressMusic coolness to the masses. If the design looks familiar to some, it’s because the X3 is the spitting image of the 5330 we previewed way back in March, a phone which never really went on to make a splash.  Anyway, the X3 is an S40 device but unusually, it comes with all the […]

Nokia X6 Launched at Nokia World

It was back in late July that we first heard Nokia could be planning an Xseries device and now, at the Nokia World conference held in Stuttgart, the Xseries has indeed become reality with the launch of not one, but two new mobile phones!  The X6 is a new Comes With Music touchscreen mobile phone, occupying the upper end of their range, and judging by the pictures, it’s a bit of a stunner! The X6 looks to be something of a successor to the 5800 XpressMusic, as it shares many of the same features.  The operating system is S60 5th […]
