Where to pick up the new Sony devices

What size of Z3 would you like? If you’re on Vodafone, it doesn’t really matter. They’re going to offer both the 5.2” Z3 and the 4.6” Z3 Compact. You know how you can’t really choose whether you want that fits-in-the-hand, 2600mAh battery, or the3GB, 1080p display? It

Sony Xperia trifecta announcement on Sep 3

  Its that time again. Like Intel’s Tick Tock processes on their chips, There are now 2 cycles when it comes to phones. The April/May time, and the September/October time. Sony did not decide to use September the 3rd to announce a device. No. They went large,

LG G3 Stylus: kinda nice but not as sweet

When we heard about the forthcoming LG G3 Stylus, we were expecting hoping for the phone to be a bigger, badder, better version of the G3. We wanted something could take on the might of Z Ultra or the Note 3, and really show us why bigger

Shamu – maybe the next Nexus to make a splash

Its that crazy time of the month – no, not that one, the other time. That time when Apple rumours start to go into overdrive and both Nexus and Galaxy Note stories spring up from almost nowhere… Almost nowhere. The Information ran a report stating that the

EU delivers pre-emptive slap for purchasing in free Apps

When is free, not free? Or free, kinda, but not quite all the time. Except… mostly. Yep, we’re talking about those apps and games which are built around the freemium model. There’s more than one way to build a freemium app. The first way is to build

Free Windows Phone satnav to get you home

Google I/O: Android L released

Google I/O: Security and wearables, Sir?

We know that “Bouncer” has long been a go-to tool for Google to scan apps coming into and already on the Play Store and your phone. Sundar Pichai came to bring the noise at the I/O keynote. First and definitely not least, security patches are going to

oneplus one delayed again over fiddling with OpenSSL fix

There are some hotly anticipated phones that just don’t ever seem to come out on time when they really really needed to. I’m thinking of the Palm Pre 3 as one of those cases and the original HTC One as another. Now the OnePlus One seems destined

New iPhone 6 fodder for the rumourmill

ARQ – the kickstarter with curves

Kickstarter has always seemed to be the sort of place where venture capitalists hang out online when they’re slumming it. The idea of it is great, but what would make one want to shell out cash in the hope that a project makes it? Because of the

WhatsApp – Highs and lows in one month

Not that we wouldn’t pay attention to one of the most popular messaging mobile applications in the world today, but there’s been a lot more attention placed upon it recently since Facebook snapped it up. Those who were concerned about privacy have been trying out a number

Rumours may be true: Performance Boosting Thing in Android 4.4.3

New HTC One/M8: Yes, more leaks

If there’s one thing that’s clear, its that HTC would never be able to run a submarine. All those leaks would have killed them a long time ago. On the other hand, its nice to be able to see the successor to the HTC One just one

Z1 Compact coming to Big Red

One of our eagle eyed staff noticed that the Z1 Compact has now been added to the Coming Soon section of the Vodafone blog. Although they don’t have pricing up yet, it will probably be just a matter of time. Personally, it’s one of the ‘mini’ handsets
