by Live Coverage 12th August 2010

Thanks to the people at Vodafone I have 2 new and very different devices to look at: the Nokia C3 and the Samsung Galaxy S. Very different (arguably the C3 isn’t a smartphone) but exciting for very different reasons…

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.

The Million project; a Marketer's dream come true

by Vikki Chowney 15th August 2009

I read a piece yesterday about the Million project in New York (named as such to reference the city’s 1.1 million students), which is an incentive-based scheme that rewards good behaviour and grades with mobile credit. In their words, the project aims to provide ‘short-term incentives to motivate students, increase classroom participation and contribute to […]

Samsung Innovation Quest goes for widgets

by Martyn Davies 23rd June 2009

The Samsung i8910 is Samsung’s HD-video enabled handset based on Symbian S60.  Visitors to the Samsung stand at the Mobile World Congress back in February would have seen a video wall of these units showing off their vivid screen colours via the AMOLED display.
