It’s nice to get out and about so the Really Mobile team jumped at the chance to attend O2′s glamourous launch party form the Palm Pre, which goes on sale today.

by Ben Smith 14th October 2009

The Really Mobile Team recently attended the Palm Pre launch party – thanks to JP at O2 who really pulled the stops out for us.

In the week that the Sony Ericsson Satio became available from Vodafone in the UK, was promised by Orange UK as ‘coming soon’ and was reported as delayed by Carphone Warehouse, James recorded a video-diary in a noisy Soho back-street giving his first – mostly positive – impressions of the device.  Utilising the same Symbian […]
