Orange resolves broadband issues after outage


Orange has resolved issues with its broadband service and BlackBerry emails after an outage last week (11 September). The BlackBerry issues, where emails were down for around one day, were caused by vandalism of cables at Heathrow, according to the operator.
Orange broadband, which was previously known as Wanadoo, is also up and running again after going down for a period of time last Thursday (10 September).
The operator did not give a reason for the problems.

HTC Hero update for UK


HTC has released the Hero update for UK users on the download page over on the UK HTC support site. The long-awaited ROM update is designed to cure a little lag and bring speed to the Android device, as well as a new focus feature for the camera on the Hero.

The ROM was released earlier to the Danish support site and better late than never; now UK Hero users can enjoy faster speeds on their Androids as well.

The update is PC-friendly, though it will remove any previous Orange or T-Mobile updates that the carriers may have made in the time you’ve owned your HTC Hero.

If you download the ROM update from the UK site, let the community here at HTCPedia know how it works out for you, as well as any feedback for the installation process.

Archos 5 with Android


Pushing the boundaries of the PMP, Archos have gone and shoved Android onto their PMP. In the past people have often complained that the OS that Archos package is pretty … unfriendly. I concur, however you can get used to it (after a year). This time around they are turning their Internet Tablet into an extremely user friendly and attractive media companion. Video to follow:

Samsung Star WiFi Spotted

Many of our US readers will already know this news and the handset itself but for me it was a first on both counts.

Samsung have quietly released the second version of their 5 million unit selling Star handset.

Samsung Star Flyer 
A Terribly Designed Flyer

The latest version of this phone features the inclusion of WiFi (hence the name change) and that’s about it. No other changes have been noted even down to dimensions and features.

In what seems to be a teen based handset the Samsung Star WiFi will be available in black, silver, pink and white colours with retail price being around $250.00.
