Sidekick "2008" pictured

sidekick-2008-gecco There has been a bit of speculation as to what’s in the new Sidekick, as per usual no one can tell. However, Engadget Mobile has manage to grab a picture of it. I like the Sidekick, however, like the iPhone and Treo it’s always been one step behind the most recent features. I hope this time around the Gecco/Gekko/2008 will pack in all in an become a phone that most will desire.

O2 = Disgrace

image Just got off the phone to O2 customer service who couldn’t find my order, then they found it, then they told me the iPhone was out of stock then they told me I would definitely be receiving it tomorrow. I put the phone down content as much as possible that I would be receiving the phone tomorrow only to receive a SMS message 5 minutes later telling me I would be receiving the iPhone before the 18th July as they were out of stock. My order was placed at 8.03am on Monday. O2 state that the iPhones were sold on a first come first served basis, if this is true how come people ordering hours after me now have confirmation that they will receive their iPhone tomorrow. This whole thing is a disgrace and O2 should be ashamed of the way this whole saga has been handled, Apple should reconsider this exclusive agreement as it is clear O2 are not capable of handling it properly.

App Store launching with 500 iPhone applications, 25% free

image Steve Jobs told USA Today that the Apple App Store will launch with "more than 500" applications Thursday night for the iPhone and iPod touch. Of these, 25% will be free and 90% will cost $9.99 or less. "This is the biggest launch of my career," said Jobs, adding, "When IBM introduced the PC, it was good, but it didn’t take off until people started discovering the software." It’s these apps then, that Steve says will "dramatically differentiates the iPhone" from Treos and BlackBerrys. Indeed, while consumers are focused on the launch of the iPhone 3G device, it’s the App Store which has analysts in such a tizzy.

HTC Touch Diamond now available on Orange

Great news for those of you that have been holding out for Orange to release the HTC Touch Diamond for today the device is finally available on the Orange Website. It’s also listed at a starting price of £39.99 but naturally the price you’ll actually pay depends on the talk plan you opt for and the length of contract.

Stunning aesthetics meets unrivalled innovation. The HTC Touch Diamondâ„¢ raises the bar in mobile communication, whilst retaining simplicity and beauty at it’s core.

I’ll be heading over to the local Orange shop later today to see if they have them in store but word is that they’ll certainly be on sale in the morning. However, we’re still being told that they are NOT available to business customers!

EDIT: Apparently you CAN buy an HTC Touch Diamond as a business customer but NOT as a corporate account customer!

If you pick up a Diamond on Orange then please let us know!
