Vodafone UK Abolishes Roaming Charges for summer

image Vodafone UK is abolishing roaming charges this summer and bringing in great value prices for international calls, making it easier for customers to phone home while abroad and make calls abroad from the UK. There are cost savings for business customers too.

From 1 June to the end of August, Vodafone Pay as you Go and Pay Monthly customers will be able to call, text and send picture messages to friends and family back home from over 35 countries knowing that it will cost exactly the same as if they were in the UK. For example, a customer on a plan with 600 minutes and unlimited texts who opts in to Vodafone Passport would use these minutes and texts when they are on holiday with no extra charges.

Sony P19WN Vaio unboxing video

We’ve looked at a number of ‘netbook’ PC’s in the past and almost all of them have one particular drawback; Small physical dimensions inevitably leads to a small screen which, while fine for casual use, can become a bit of a pain when it comes to web browsing etc.

Sony think they’ve come up with a solution though with the Sony P19WN/Q Vaio, they’ve crammed an 8" 1600×768 TFT display in to a 25 x 12 x 2cm package. The result is a beautiful looking small netbook with an amazing widescreen.

The Sony P19WN/Q Vaio

So slight and slim, you might not even know its there. About as thin as most cell phones, VAIO P series Lifestyle PC is a cinch to tote. Designed specifically for the ultra-mobile professional, this 8" miniature PC is small enough to fit in a jacket pocket. A lot of miniature PCs out there feature low resolution screens which makes for a sub-par web browsing experience. Basically, a low resolution screen means that you need to scroll side to side to view an entire web page… very annoying and time-consuming, especially when on the go.

I’ve only used the Sony P19WN/Q Vaio briefly as we only had a short-term loan of this review model but I have to say that it really is very impressive! The screen is stunning and overall it performs well. I’m expecting a retail version of the Sony P19WN/Q Vaio to arrive soon and I’ll be reviewing that as soon as I can. For now I’ll leave you with the unboxing video:
