Galaxy Note 2

If you’re in the UK, chances are you’ve been waiting with baited breath over the eventual release of this monster device. Well, the wait comes to an end next Tuesday, when Vodafone, O2, T-Mobile and Orange start taking orders through Phones4u, a well known UK retailer.

Xperia T

UK is still in pole-position to get the Xperia T and J before any other market, and we’ve now started to hear about the carriers preparing to start selling the two phones. As expected, no carrier will be getting exclusivity over any of the devices, which is good news for regular users, who’ll have more freedom of choice.

In addition to not saying a word about the actual release dates of the Galaxy Note 2 phablet, Samsung also failed to unveil pricing details for the device. Sure, the Galaxy Note 2 will sell both unlocked and bundled with multi-year plans with carriers, so it’s harder for Samsung to mention the price during a general event. But it could have hinted at some price points for the various Galaxy Note 2 versions that will soon hit stores. Engadget has learned that Vodafone Germany plans to charge 640 Euros for the 16GB unlocked LTE version of the Galaxy Note 2,…

Everything Everywhere, the alliance between carriers Orange and T-Mobile, has been given the green light by Ofcom to roll out 4G networks in the UK from September 11, well ahead of the scheduled auction. Consumers may be pleased, but competitors O2 and Vodafone definitely aren’t.

Last month, we reported a story regarding OTA Jelly Bean updates and its delay to the Nexus S. Then a few days after, we put out another story about the Nexus S getting the eventual update after the delay. Then just a few days ago, we reported about the Samsung ICS OTA update. What does all of this mean? It means we’re here to tell you Vodafone has finally made good on its promise and pushed out the OTA Jelly Bean Android 4.1 goodness! At the moment, information is scarce about the Web, but the story is developing, and people are commenting…

The Samsung Galaxy Note has had a wild ride, globally speaking, since it’s initial impression on the public almost a year ago. Tomorrow, the fun continues as the sweet phablet that shook the market gets a sweet upgrade to Android 4.0.4 Ice Cream Sandwich. As always, keep a steady connection and a full battery as OTA updates are never able to be foretold with an accurate date; they just kind of happen during a period of time, if at all. The carrier, Vodafone says, tomorrow is the start date so expect an update by week’s end to be safe. It…

Huawei-Ascend-P1

Trying to shake off its second-tier (third?) image, Huawei has been polishing its Android offerings this year in hope that it will make the leap to the next class. The result can be seen in the company’s Ascend series. After being launched in Australia and Canada, the Ascend P1 will be vying for some love from UK customers soon. The Huawei Ascend P1 will be available for purchase from Vodafone UK in early August – the full availability details haven’t been shared yet. But for those customers who don’t mind being tied to the carrier, the phone can be yours for free…
