It seems after it was finally released two days ago, Orange is now offering the SE K850i for free on an 18-month contract which costs ?30 per month and includes 350 minutes and 200 texts, however at the moment only the green K850i is available via Orange… (this offer has not yet been released via the Orange website, this was discovered via the CarphoneWarehouse) Incomparison O2 is also now offering an 18-month tariff which gives you a free handset as well, just to be competitive, the price for line rental is also ?30 per month and includes 400 free minutes and 500 texts.

Is GMail going offline?

On September 19, 2007, in Leaked and Speculated, by KLS

There have been rumours recently that Gmail may soon be ‘going’ offline! By that… we don’t actually mean Gmail is about to collapse, why should it?

Google Mail which currently offers their users up to 2.9 Gb of mail space has indeed been one of the most popular emerging webmail services. In order to boost its popularity to the next level, Gmail is now exploring the possibility of allowing users to check their email without being connected to the internet. Precisely how this will work is still uncertain and much of this news is just being spred round. However, there is info that Google has already developed a software for this new service, therefore users will be able to read messages from their inbox, archive, etc…and manage their account completely ‘offline’!?

November the 9th is most certainly a day to mark into your schedule! That’s right, it’s finally confirmed, you may have been reading some of this news recently from our previous blog posts or off the news, but O2 has finally confirmed today on its site that they will be the sole carrier for bringing iPhone to the UK.

Apple iPhone to launch in the UK in November!

As well as this, Apple has also announced the same news on their site:

Apple iPhone coming to UK on Apple’s site!

If you would like to know more about the version of iPhone that will be coming to the UK, I would recommend seeing the information provided by the Apple link above. Based on the quick look I had, it seems that the UK will not be the same as that which will be available in Germany by T-Mobile.

From previously leaked German adverts, their iPhone will be 16 Gb with HSDPA, what about ours? Ours will be a quad-band, running on 8 Gb but only with WiFi, EDGE and bluetooth 2.0 (see Apple iPhone specs). If the German rumours are true, then it seems our extra 8 Gb and 3G s’ been pitched…

Apple iPod Touch

The new iPod has been spoken about in everyone’s conversation here in the UK, Apple this and iPod Touch that…woh…we britons are just as addicted to Apple as any other nation after all. I realise its already been in the press, in the news on tv and you readers out there probably know more about then i do! But ok, it doesn’t matter, this will just be a quick post with lots of cool pics and some main specs about the new iPod Touch.

So it turns out Apple will finally be launching an iPod with touch screen and WiFi, the new iPod will be equipped with a hi-resolution 3.5″ screen, Safari web browser, with its internet connectivity, users will also be able to directly download music via iTunes. The new iPod Touch does not have any buttons, music controls, everything is simply based on control via its touchscreen. However, if you’ve read up to this point, you may probably realise there is really nothing more to the new iPod Touch that iPhone doesn’t already have, except for the phone bit.

If you were to hold the iPod Touch, you will notice that it is thinner (8mm) in comparison to the iPhone, may be that is the main difference! In terms of pricing, iPod Touch will be expected to arrive the UK (and worldwide) by the end of the month. Roughly speaking, the 8 Gb version will cost approx. £150.00, while the 16 Gb will be £200.00.

If you haven’t seen the new iPod Touch’s ‘guided tour’ video, here’s your chance now:

Skirmish Assult - A Flash War Game

Skirmish Assult is a mini flash paintball war game I found on ImageFly, a great way to spend your time when you don’t have much to do! The aim of the game is just to shoot paintballs non-stop using your mouse as quickly as possible and take out as many enemy targets as you can! It gets more and more tricky as you advance to later stages when enemy targets appear quicker and instantaneously on both sides of your screen!

The fact is there are not many 5-megapixel camera phones available to the UK at the moment, when you try to think of one, you would probably come up with the latest Nokia N95 or even maybe Sony Ericsson’s soon to arrive K850i. But right now, there is nothing as thin and slick as the Samsung G600?

Have a look at this video:
