O2 has launched O2 WiFi offering free WiFi to anyone, regardless of whether or not they are an O2 customer. Rather than focus on their existing customer base or charge non O2 customers for access, O2 has taken the view that their revenue stream will come from the venue partners. O2′s aim is to make […]

O2 confirm iPhone launch on Tesco Mobile

by Dan Lane 10th December 2009

UK supermarket chain Tesco isn’t exactly known for it’s premium brand (apparently sitting between Asda and Sainsbury’s in the ‘Supermarket Snobbery’ charts) but that doesn’t mean customers of their MVNO offering have to go without… The iPhone 3G and 3GS will be available on the network from Monday on both Pay As You Go and […]

The lowdown on giffgaff

by Dan Lane 26th November 2009

giffgaff (uncomfortably all lowercase) is a brand new pay-as-you-go MVNO backed by O2 (and using the O2 network) that claims to be “The People Powered Network”, they launched their service yesterday morning and I was lucky enough to get up close and personal with the giffgaff management team to get the lowdown on this unique […]

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.

CORRECTED: Palm Pre (doesn't) win T3 'Gadget of the year'

by Dan Lane 14th October 2009

Whoops! this post was previously about the Palm Pre winning Gadget of the Year at the ‘The T3 Gadget Awards‘. Well it pains me to say that turns out we were wrong. Yes, that’s right, it happens sometimes! We acted on a lead from a confused tipster. The award was actually “Outstanding Contribution to Tech” […]

Palm Pre launch party [There ain't no party like an O2 party... Hey... Ho... etc]

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. These events confuse me – very few people talking much about the device or the launch, but free drinks and an expensive line-up of bands. I’m not complaining, but that […]

Is it Christmas? Samsung's brought a turkey [Samsung Galaxy (again)]

by Ben Smith 8th October 2009

Just when I thought the Samsung Galaxy (GT-I7500 to its few friends) couldn’t disappoint any more… I discovered it could.  Software updating (or rather the lack of it) adds a world of pain to the already disappointing experience. A few weeks ago I blogged my excitement and then disappointment with the Samsung Galaxy – its […]
