Everything Everywhere and Three iPhone 4S pricing

iPhone 4S Siri

We posted earlier about the super offer that Vodafone has for today only for pre-orders of the iPhone 4S. Three and Everything Everywhere also now their price plans online and whilst there is not a great deal between them I have picked up on one possible issue.

With the launch of iCloud syncing starting next week I am a little concerned that the UK carriers data plans will be sufficient. Many people get close or go over their 500mb or 1Gb data allowance every month and with the added feature of cloud syncing will iPhone users be faced with an additional cost?

If you are going to be taking a lot of photos and video with your iPhone then I will urge you to have a look at the ‘One Plan’ from Three. With all you can eat data this may be the only way to ensure you are not going over your data allowance.

You can see the Three, T-Mobile and Orange iPhone 4S options below:

Samsung and Google cancel launch event


It was only this morning that we posted about the event that Google and Samsung had arranged to unveil the new Nexus phone. They have now changed their minds and we will have to wait for further updates from them.

Samsung and Google decide to postpone the new product announcement at CTIA Fall. We agree that it is just not the right time to announce a new product. New date and venue will be shortly announced.

The Next Web is now reporting that the date will only be postponed until October 27th and the location for the launch will now be London. I hope this rumor is correct!

Asus show how tough they are

asus-tough-frontAsus recently revealed an up-coming Android tablet that we haven’t really heard about previously. The 7-inch tablet will be called the ASUS TOUGH, and will be designed as a rugged-style, water-proof and dust-proof Honeycomb based Android Tablet. Initially it will be heading to the KDDI network in Japan, and there is no word if it will make it to any other markets. Here is a list of specs:

  • 7-Inch Screen with a resolution of 1280×800
  • Honeycomb 3.2
  • Water-Proof and Dust-Proof
  • Dual-core 1GHz Tegra 2 processor
  • 16GB of built-in internal storage memory
  • 5 megapixel camera rear camera (no camera on the front)
  • EVDO, Bluetooth, WiFi and GPS & WiMax

It’s interesting that it has WiMax support, so it is possible we could see it show up in the States for Sprint. Although this tablet looks a bit on the heavy and beefy side, the ability to use it outdoors or in the shower, make it kind of appealing. What do you guys think? Would you want this to come to the States?
Here’s a link to some additional pics of the device: Asus TOUGH Android Tablet Additional Pics
