EE launch more own-brand kit. Say hello to the Harrier and Harrier Mini

This entire site started way back in 2002 when Orange launched the SPV. It was an own-branded smartphone manufactured by a little known (and little-mentioned) company called “HTC”. Now EE, who have swallowed up Orange (and T-Mobile), are launching two new smartphones – the Harrier and Harrier

giffgaff 4G vs 3G tested. Is there really a huge difference?

Every network is pushing 4G at the moment, even the MVNOs – those networks that use the likes of O2, Vodafone, Three and EE as the back-end infrastructure but supply their own service on top. giffgaff is probably one of the most well-known, mainly due to their

Vodafone Smart Tab 4G Review

Look at a network-branded tablet and you’ll sometimes find yourself in a strange world of rebranded Chinese kit. Is it good? Is it bad? It’s really hard to tell. However, for £125 on Pay As You Go or £21 per month for 3GB of 4G data per

The story of the mobile phone

EE has just committed to spending £1.5 billion, that’s £1,500,000,000 or 5,084,745,763 pints of beer, between now and 2017 as part of a snazzily named new manifesto called “Signalling the Future”. This new manifesto is designed to tackle the digital infrastructure needs of the UK and lay

Relish – Cheap broadband, no line rental… and it’s all via 4G.

Vodafone extends 4G roaming destinations

This morning I walked through driving rain, freezing winds and complete darkness at 6.30AM. It was a delightful walk and just made me smile inside and out. However, if you want to swap this beautiful wind, snow, rain and hail for some horrible sunshine and irritating sandy
