  1. Definitely getting one of these as soon as they are available in the UK.   I'll probably write a comparison between the Tizen powered Gear 2 and the Android GWatch.
  2. I'm one of the organisers of the EdiAUG meetups and there will be an event held on Thursday September 5th. http://www.ediaug.org/2013/08/were-back.html Feel free to contact me on Google Plus if you would like more info.
  3. Huawei G510 Review

    Good review by the way!
  4. Huawei G510 Review

    512kb ram should be more than enough! ;-)
  5. My Lumia 710 finally got the Windows Phone 7.8 update today. Ironically I purchased a Lumia 620 yesterday. Windows Phone 7.8 definitely brings a few improvements to the Lumia 710. http://www.todoleo.com/2013/03/two-lumias-one-pimp.html If you have any questions feel free to ask here. I might get round to doing a comparison between WP7.8 and WP8 at some point too.
  6. A 5 inch 1080p screen, slide out physical portrait qwerty keyboard and WebOS with TouchWiz as the operating system. I'll keep on dreaming/having nightmares until tonight...
  7. Nokia Lumia 720

    Today Nokia officially announced the Lumia 720 and 520 handsets at MWC in Barcelona, Spain. The Nokia Lumia 720 is a mid to high end device which bridges the gap between the Lumia 620 and 820 in Nokia's product line up. While in numbering it seems to be the successor to the Lumia 710, it is a much more feature rich and capable device. The highlights of the device are the 4.3" WVGA (800x480) Super Sensitive Touch display and the f/1.9 aperture 6.7 megapixel camera. Unlike the Lumia 520, the 720 has a 1.3 megapixel front facing camera which should be compatible with Skype HD. The tech specs of the Lumia 720 are as follows: Networks: GSM/EDGE: 850 (5)/900 (8)/1800 (3)/1900 (2) MHz, WCDMA: 850 (5)/900 (8)/1900 (2)/2100 (1) MHz, HSPA+: 21 Mbps, (Cat 14) OS: Windows Phone 8, GDR1 CPU: MSM8227, 1.0 GHz RAM: 512 MB Storage: 8 GB + microSD Card Slot Display: 4.3” ClearBlack WVGA LCD, 2.25 D Glass, Super Sensitive Touch Camera: Back: 6.7 MPIX, BSI, Auto-Focus, Carl Zeiss, LED flash, HD 720p @ at 30 fps, Front: Skype HD wide angle (1.3Mpix) Connectivity: NFC, A-GPS+GLONASS, WLAN (2.4/5Ghz) a/b/g/n, µUSB, BT 3.0, 3D Accelerometer, Proximity, Magnetometer, Automatic Light Sensor. (No Gyroscope) Battery: 2000 mAh battery + Wireless Charging Cover Accessory; standby 520hrs, talk time 13.5hrs Audio: 2 HAAC (high-amplitude audio capture) mics, HD Voice (wideband audio, noise cancellation) Size: 127.9 x 67.5 x 9mm Weight: 128g Colours: Gloss: White, Matte: Red, Yellow, Cyan & Black Wireless charging is an optional feature which can be added using the changeable back covers, as with the Lumia 820. NFC connectivity is included, but it is not yet clear if the battery on the Lumia 720 is user replaceable. Are you considering upgrading from a Lumia 710 to a 720 like I am? Do you think the £260 SIM free price is competitive? Let us know in the comments. Source: Nokia Conversations Click here to view the item
  8. Nokia Lumia 520

    Today Nokia officially announced the Lumia 720 and 520 handsets at MWC in Barcelona, Spain. The two new Lumia devices run Windows Phone 8 and while the 520 covers the lower end of the market, the 720 should be a mid range device. The Lumia 520 is said to be the most affordable Windows Phone 8 device, with indicated price starting at around £120 (~$180) before taxes and subsidies. The Nokia Lumia spec sheet is as follows: Operating System: Windows Phone 8 Networks: WCDMA 900/2100, 850/1900/2100, GSM/EDGE 850/900/1800/1900 Speed: 3G HSPA+ (21Mbps) Memory: 512 MB RAM, 8 GB mass memory, support for microSD cards up to 64GB, 7GB free SkyDrive storage Display: 4” IPS LCD WVGA (800 x 480 pixels) 16M colors, 2D hardened glass, super sensitive touch for fingernail and glove use Processor: 1 GHz Dual Core Snapdragon™ Camera: 5Mpix autofocus, video recording HD 720p 30fps Size: 119.9 x 64 x 9.9 mm* (*volume thickness) Weight: 124g Connectivity: WLAN IEEE802.11 b/g/n, Bluetooth 3.0, Integrated A-GPS, 3.5 mm audio connector, Micro USB with charging, USB 2.0 High Speed Battery: 1430mAh Audio: single digital microphone, 3.5mm AV connector, MP3 player Colours: Yellow, red, cyan, white and black Talk time: up to 9.6 hours (on 3G) Standby time: up to 360 hours Interestingly the 4" touchscreen can be used with nails or gloves on, using similar tech to the one used in the Lumia 920. There have been some trade offs to keep the price low though: the camera lacks flash and there is no front facing camera. Are you thinking about buying this affordable Windows Phone 8 device?

  11. Stuff and things are definitely faster in kilofasts! Well done Daz! Thanks for all your hard work on this!
  12. Breaking up with my Lumia

    The Spanish speakers among you will probably appreciate the pun. I've fallen out of love with my Nokia Lumia 710. Here is the blog post with the reasoning. http://www.todoleo.com/2013/02/lumia-update-fail-again.html Feel free to leave comments on either the blog itself or here.
  13. ZTE Blade III now available in the UK

    @kaizoku_san The Blade III has a front facing camera (VGA), but has no flash on the rear camera. I already have a G300 and am very tempted to compare the two devices.
  14. ZTE Blade III now available in the UK

    I might get one of these just to compare it to the Huawei G300. If it can be easily sim unlocked and modded, even better! Mind you, with Virgin's Big Data PAYG tariff, I wouldn't need to sim unlock it.
  15. The Windows Phone 7.8 update for "legacy" Windows Phone devices should start rolling out on January 31st 2013. Windows Phone 7.8 is an update for devices running Windows Phone 7.5. These devices will not be upgradeable to Windows Phone 8, but through 7.8 will receive a UI and branding update to make the look and feel more similar to WP8. There has been no official announcement from Microsoft regarding the Windows Phone 7.8 update further than one about an "early 2013" release. Manufacturers have been similarly cagey about the rollout, but some network operators have been more forthcoming about it. Last week I contacted the network operator I use for my personal device, Three UK, and got an informative response. ( Three UK Tweet ) There have been similar responses from network operators and retailers globally, as reported by wpcentral.com. My personal speculation on the matter is that the update is currently being tested by network operators and that Microsoft wants the WP 7.8 rollout to be as smooth and fast as possible. I don't think MS wants to split their smartphone ecosystem more than it already is or have consumers complaining about "Windows Phone Fragmentation". Here's to hoping the update is pushed out as soon and quickly as possible. Do you have a Windows Phone 7.5 Mango or Tango device? Do you have or are you looking forward to the official release of the Windows Phone OS update? Let us know what you think in the comments. Click here to view the item
