Nokia straps a rocket to 5G with a massive 4.7Gbps speed test

Last night I got about 50MMbps via my Vodafone 4G data and I thought, to be honest, that’s really not bad. Considering that the fastest normal ADSL (fixed line) speeds round here are around 30Mbps. 5G though, that’s the next big thing, and Nokia have pushed the all-new …

Nokia become the official No Time To Die partner

The iPhone 11 screen. Why is it worse than a budget Android?

My gaming history

I remember, when I was a kid, a time before a “console” was even a thing. At Christmas I remember playing records. Proper records. Big vinyl double-albums with pictures of all the bands and singers. It was great. I even had my own record player. Then, one day, …

Fancy a free Nintendo Switch?

The Nokia 5.1 comes back to the UK

Nokia Steel HR – Unboxing

#MWC18 – Vodafone announce 4G coverage… on the MOON

Yes, the moon. The actual moon. Methinks they’re going to need a bigger coverage map. They’ll be using “Ultra Compact Network” kit, the lightest ever developed. It weighs less than a bag of sugar. In a partnership with Nokia, the Vodafone 4G network will enable the first live-streaming …

Exploring the evolution of mobile phones

It’s fair to say that I’m now of a “certain age” and I can quite easily amaze people by detailing a long-forgotten time “before mobile phones”. At school in the 80’s and 90’s, you simply wouldn’t see a phone, and it was only at college that clever new …
