Apple talking to T-Mobile UK about the iPhone 3G

image The days of O2’s exclusive hold on the iPhone are probably numbered – T-Mobile has told The Register that  it’s in talks with Apple about ranging the iPhone 3G in the next few months.

The deals being discussed only include the iPhone 3G, and O2’s exclusive on the 3GS seems to be secure. But even this represents a major shift in how Apple markets the iPhone, which currently relies on network exclusives to get a decent subsidy; giving that up shows either greater confidence or reflected disappointment in how O2 has priced up the latest offering.

T-Mobile has been telling callers that the company is in talks with Apple about ranging the iPhone 3G, and Orange is also rumoured to have plans regarding Apple’s last-version handset. That would leave O2 to explain to users why the 3GS is better; doing Apple’s marketing for it.

Sony Ericsson Bao Leaked

The internet today seems to be filled with leaked shots of handsets and now its the turn of Sony Ericsson with their handset codenamed Sony Ericsson Bao.

The Bao is a clamshell that not only looks like a Rubik’s Cube, but is almost as thick as one, ok maybe a slight exaggeration there but it certainly aint a phone on a diet.

Sony must have spent all its creative juices on its pair of touchscreen beauties, the Sony Ericsson Satio and Aino, because the Sony Ericsson Bao certainly isn’t so swish.

Oh, and if you were wondering, no it’s not just you, the Sony Ericsson Bao is a carbon copy of the Nokia Prism.

There are no known specs for the Sony Ericsson Bao just yet other than there being a camera lens on the back, but the screen is about the size of a postage stamp, so don’t expect this to be the Sony Ericsson Android phone we’re all eagerly awaiting.
