Get a bottle of bubbly quickly with taxi app Gett

Gett is an app which lets you grab a black taxi. You can download it on iOS and Android. Now, with intense competition from the likes of Uber, Addison Lee and others, they’re diversifying by offering an on-demand delivery service too. It works thanks to drivers and

HTC announce the Desire 626 for the UK

Well, no big launch event for this particular handset. It’s billed as a mid-range smartphone and features a Snapdragon 1.2GHz quad-core CPU with a 13 megapixel rear camera and a 5 megapixel front one. It’s the successor to the HTC Desire 620, which was basically an upgraded HTC

Go Green with the Samsung Galaxy S6 edge on Vodafone

It’s green! As green as the beautiful green grass. You can get it on the 32GB, 64GB or 64GB versions and there’s gold, white and black to choose from too. But hey, wait, the green one is now available from Vodafone. We had a look around and

Dig out those old cassettes, convert your tunes into MP3

A little confusing this one because, for most of you, this sort of thing won’t be needed. If you do have old TDK-90 tapes kicking around your loft then you’ll have probably re-purchased the music that was on those tapes via your iPod or iPhone by now.

Bluetooth Speaker #4007 – KitSound Hive Discovery

Gah! Another Bluetooth speaker! When will this madness ever end! :) This is a tough cookie though, and is waterproof so you’ll not need to worry about knocking drinks over. It’s also dust and drop resistant up to 1.5 metres. They’ve also added an LED torch, which

Light up your floater for up to 3 hours.

What’s going on here eh? I’m getting sent all sorts of weird stuff in my inbox today. I could just go ahead and publish anything, perhaps with some hysteria and click-bait hype. Y’know, like the Daily Mail or The Verge. Perhaps then it’ll stick onto social media

Bluetooth Speaker #4467 – The Braven BRV-PRO

Why has this guy got a Bluetooth speaker on his surfboard? Just why? We’ll never know. Yeah. Perhaps he wants some music blasting out while he catches some waves or something. Maybe. I think he’d perhaps be better without that attachment on the front, but whatever floats

Bluetooth Speaker #4276 – The KitSound Hive

Ahhhh come on. It’s been at least an hour since we mentioned a Bluetooth speaker. We’ve got a box full of miniature speakers here at Coolsmartphone towers but this one is from KitSound, who we quite like because we’ve reviewed their stuff quite a bit and it’s

Bluetooth Speaker #2746 – Boomtube

This my friends, is another post about another Bluetooth speaker. Meet the Boomtube.. Sorry. Not Boobtube. BOOMTUBE. I think, due to the amount of emails I get about Bluetooth speakers, I’m going slightly delirious about them. Speakers that is, of course. This is a classy and stylish

Hello Moto ….. G ….3rd … gen..

Sadly it wasn’t up for long, but this picture briefly appeared on the Digitec website which puportedly shows the Moto G 3rd Gen in all its glory. Due for a launch by LenovoMoto next week, it looks like they’ve jumped the gun early by revealing the 5″

OnePlus Two peeps out in new photo

We’ve seen the OnePlus Two details already floating around the internet, but now Teena, the Chines mobile regulator, has revealed a shot of the thing for all to see. What we know so far is that the OnePlus 2 will have USB Type C and it should

Commodore is back, and it’s bringing the 80’s with it

Remember the Commodore 64? If you do then there’s a fair chance that you remember a time before mobile phones. You remember a time when putting something a stylus onto something called a “record” and trying not to scratch it. You remember tape-to-tape copying and high-speed dubbing.

Voda deny MVNO exit claim

Earlier today TalkTalk accused Vodafone of quitting all MVNO activity. In documents relating to the BT/EE merger, TalkTalk had info to suggest that Voda had served notice on Sainsburys and Carphone Warehouse following the discontinuation of service for TalkTalk. We now understand that Vodafone is in the

Hey Cortana, you’ve got a leaky APK

If you’re an Android user and want to play around with the Windows assistant that is Cortana, you can now download the leaked APK and sideload it here. The voice assistant, which you’ve probably seen on adverts, may or may not be better than Google Now /
