[Update] Since this article was written, Samsung has confirmed the delays in an official statement that you can read below.
Heads up, UK folks! There’s some bad news about the Samsung Galaxy S3 that you’d definitely want to know about. Some UK carriers and retailers are now reporting a possible shipment delay of the flagship phone.
Vodafone said that customers who pre-ordered the 32GB Marble White model of the phone aren’t likely to get the phones tomorrow. The carrier also mentioned the same delay will be faced by those who pre-ordered the 16GB and 32GB Pebble Blue models of the phone. It might take between two weeks and a month for customers for customers to [...]
With technology enthusiasts in the United States still not knowing when (and for what price) to expect the Galaxy S3, Sammy’s new flagship phone, things are starting to shape up in Europe.
UK’s most important carriers have officially announced when they’ll put the phone up for sale and how much it will cost. The good news is that you’ll be able to get the Galaxy S3 free of charge. The bad news is that not all carriers offer the next Galaxy for free, and those that do require some hefty new plans to be activated.
Vodafone will be the first UK carrier to sell the S3, one day before all its competitors, and will also be the first to offer both the 16 and the [...]
Folks, it’s our pleasure to report that all the debates (if there were any) about the HTC Golf being officially called either the Wildfire C or the Desire C can finally be put to rest. More pictures of the entry-level smartphone have leaked, and this time, they give us a better look of the phone and its specs. And yes, it will be called the HTC Desire C.
Shown on Vodafone Portugal’s catalog of upcoming phones, the specs of the HTC Desire C don’t vary too much from earlier reports. But, as it always happens in this cases, it’s sure nice to get some sort of official confirmation. The HTC Desire C will be powered by a 600MHz processor, and boast a 3.5-inch screen [...]
While everybody’s waiting for the Samsung Galaxy S3 unveiling event set to take place in London in just a couple of days, HTC seems to be doing everything possible to steal some of that attention. Vodafone UK has just dropped the HTC One X and S prices on contract, and, if you’re looking to upgrade to a mid-range or high-end Android smartphone right now, you should definitely check the operator’s sweet, sweet deals!
Both HTC handhelds are available for free on two-year contracts and monthly plans now start at £31, for the One S, and £36, for the One X in white. Both plans are five quid cheaper than before, but they still include a hefty 600 minutes, unlimited texts, [...]
As expected, the Samsung Galaxy S3 fever is increasing as we get closer to the official unveiling, next week. While we still have very little in terms of official information about the future handheld, the PR guys at Samsung are doing a brilliant job of keeping us on our toes and gradually “leaking” details about it.
The most recent news we have to report about the “next Galaxy” is, believe it or not, official, and, even though it doesn’t refer to the phone’s tech specs, features or pricing, it should make a couple of tech geeks even more excited about the upcoming Android “beast”.
Vodafone UK and O2, the two biggest mobile carriers in the United Kingdom, have [...]
Vodafone like HTC and seem to love Android. They currently have a mini army of Android phones available, including the HTC Legend, Nexus One, and Sony Ericsson Xperia X10. Now Vodafone have one of their very own custom branded Android devices known as the Vodafone 845.
The Vodafone 845 isn’t in the same league as the aforementioned devices when it comes to the specification sheet. However, it is positioned right in the middle of the mass consumer market and packs enough to keep a wide audience happy; from teenagers through to older-folk. Not every needs cutting edge after all. The design of this device is appealing to the eye, [...]
This Dell ‘roadmap’ reveals forthcoming Android based devices from computer manufacturer Dell, including a rough timeline on when we can expect to see them materialise.
This particular visualisation of Dell’s timeline comes via AndroidCentral, and reveals two new tablet/netbook class devices called “Sparta” and “Athens”. Both devices are alleged to be around the 11” mark, but the Sparta is a tablet while the Athens is considered a 0.9-kilogram “True notebook”. Both devices come with optional 3G, WiFi, and Bluetooth, powered by an an ARM based [...]
This month Vodafone UK are launching not one, but three Android based devices. Vodafone are one of the strongest networks in the UK in terms of customer support and 3G signal.

The HTC Legend is now available for pre-order on Vodafone UK, and other websites operating as resellers for Vodafone. The website quite clearly states that if you pre-order yours today you should receive it first, and it is expected on 6 April, which is a Tuesday. It wouldn’t surprise me if this ended up hitting your pocket by Monday or earlier. Vodafone as pushing the fact there is ‘Adobe Flash’ for ‘great looking websites’.
Want a phone you can make your own? Go for the HTC Legend. With up to seven home screens, there’s plenty of room to get things how you like them. And inside, there’s [...]
The Dutch version of the HTC Legend seems to be experiencing some problems in the Android Market and we’re not sure who is to blame. HTC have come right out and said that the restricted access to applications such as Skype and Layer is not their doing, putting the onus firmly with Google. Google are yet to release a formal statement, but it is probably unlikely that they are blocking these applications on purpose.
The HTC Legend itself is an attractive piece of kit. “The sleek unibody design with a brilliant AMOLED display and a brushed metallic finish, feels great in your hand and stirs admiration from those around. Along [...]
