Orange UK

We already know that the DEXT will be launched on Orange UK in Q4 of this year. What we didn’t know is when. The DEXT/CLIQ is the new Android based device... from Motorola and sports two different names depending on whether you are stateside or not. Those living outside of America will become increasingly familiar with the DEXT, while those living in will...

The Pulse, offered by T-Mobile, has just been officially ousted as the company’s third Android offering. As mentioned before, the device is produced by Huawei and offers a sleek and smooth chrome... shell along with HSDPA, Wi-Fi, GPS, a 3.5-inch HVGA touchscreen, and a 3.2 megapixel camera.

HTC Hero

T-Mobile UK has yet to confirm the availability date of its G2 Touch (HTC Hero) smartphone, noting that it’s not been delayed since the date was never set. ... However, the launch announcement that originally went out did specify “mid-July”, so that certainly would mean sooner rather than later.

T-Mobile Germany, for its part, has said that the...

Today Orange UK announced that it will be adding the HTC Hero to its handset portfolio.  The phone will be available free to customers who sign up for a 24 month £39.15/mo contract, which includes... 1200 network minutes, unlimited text, and internet browsing.  It will be available in “early July”, though we’ve been told by other, non-Orange retail sources that the device will...

The news on the wire suggests that Orange may be the first in the UK to receive the ‘HTC Hero’.

If the reports are accurate, it won’t be hitting any home runs, but may offer HSDPA connectivity, a 3MP camera and Bluetoo...

A day after it was promised, the HTC Magic limped into Vodafone stores across the UK this Saturday, the 2nd of May. Most stores had not even updated their shop fronts with any HTC Magic advertisements... or general goodies by 11am. Only one of the three stores in Oxford’s busy city centre had updated their awnings to replace the small HTC Magic logo with an equally small, “it’s here” sign. The p...

HTC Magic ready to roll on Vodafone

Today we took a trip into Soho, London, UK, to visit Vodafone’s invite only launch for the HTC Magic. The private members club was... a fitting venue for the UK launch of one of the most highly anticipated phones of the summer. Although somewhat hard to find, the venue provided an intimate spot for us to have a face to face with Voda...

Yesterday we attended Acer’s UK press launch for its upcoming range of smartphones. Although we had already spoken to Acer at MWC in Barcelona last month, we wanted to see whether we could squeeze... any more information out of the company regarding the possibility of an Acer Android handset.
