Bejeweling otherwise inexpensive objects is the preserve of people with more money than sense, even if you only count the cash they’re carrying, and even if you wait until they’re naked. Expensive plating is the exact opposite of armour – instead of protecting the sensitive systems inside, you’re adding more vulnerable and precious material outside. Add the fact that cellphones are more famous for being lost than the sunken city of Atlantis and you have an idea that’d make Brewster say “Hell no, I can lose millions without being that stupid.” 1. Gold Unless you’re a pimp or fighting Cybermen there […]
Rumours keep surfacing about the next Apple iPhone. We all know it’s coming, we just have to wait until Apple decide it’s time to unleash the 4G on the world. Designer Guilherme M Schasipen is one individual who can’t wait and has posted some images of what he believes will be the new iPhone 4G design. The pictures were put up on French website NowhereElse and, unlike many other mock-ups are pretty believable. So what makes these so different to the rest? Well the fact that the new design is incredibly similar to the current iPhone 3GS, but is prettier. […]
Images are floating around the net of a supposed iPhone 4G or at least parts of it. If the shots are to be believed then the next iPhone edition will be bigger than the current smartphone darling, the iPhone 3GS. With the growing trend of slab-like Smartphones hitting the shelves, this was to be expected (although we still think we’ll be seeing the iPhone mini soon). iResQ, an iPhone repair site have supposedly captured the images of the iPhone 4G and measured it at a whole quarter of an inch bigger than the 3GS. Obviously, as with every unofficial morsel […]
Today, Vodafone have clearly laid out their plans for selling the iPhone in the UK for all to examine. Vodafone are the latest UK network to leap aboard the iPhone sales train, joining Orange, Tesco Mobile and O2, whose exclusivity to sell the phone ended earlier this year. The Vodafone iPhone will be released on the 14th January and there are a variety of new tariffs to go with it. The cheapest option will cost £30 per month, with 300 minutes and unlimited SMS, plus 1GB of data. If you want a 3GS with this plan – and you do […]
It was late last month that Tesco announced they would be selling the world’s favourite smartphone via their Tesco Mobile service. Of course, this prompted jokes centered around the Value range, but it seems like Tesco have had the last laugh as their just-released tariffs look rather good. Buyers will have a choice of a 12 or 24-month contract, with the former costing £20 per month, inclusive of £60 worth of calls and texts, and the latter at £60 per month with unlimited calls and texts. Both these monthly deals include unlimited use of BT Openzone hotspots too. The hit […]
The shopping center trees are up, employees are entering the insanity brought by christmas music on a permanent loop, and that means it’s time for the NHS to start stressing how wicked drink will murder us all in our faces and homes again. They’ve at least upgraded their ads, releasing an iPhone application (with a Windows version available) to tell you exactly how much to not drink. Drinks Tracker can be updated with the amount you imbibe every day, providing feedback on how much you should cut back or tell you you’re doing fine. Consider the likelihood of an NHS program saying […]
In part one we covered what could be considered the ‘old school’ smartphone operating systems, which essentially paved the way for those featured here in part two. While Palm may have also been there right at the start, webOS has much more in common with its two main competitors, Android and iPhone OS, than it does with the original Palm OS. Let’s take a closer look at the three biggest names in mobile operating systems today.
