Also announced was a new accessory called the wireless charging orb, which is very similar to the Palm touchstone that shipped with the Palm Pre. The device will also be running Android 4.2 which we are getting more details about shortly.

    Hey! the iphone is better because it has a 6ppi better screen- lol

    That is an astonishing price, I did a bit of a double take on that. Just a smidge under half the price of the equivilant iPhone, £130 cheaper than the SGS3 and it is even cheaper than the old Samsung Galaxy Nexus by £20. Wowsers!

    I suppose the only thing people will whine about is the lack of LTE, but tbh, that is no bad thing as the EE pricing and data allowances are pretty poor.

    I agree, if this has got decent build quality, then it will sell bucket loads….I was expecting a price of £400 upwards, it’ll certainly make the competition sit up a bit.
