Motorola announce the Motorola Lapdock 100


Remember the laptop dock that you could get for the Motorola Atrix? Well yesterday in the USA Motorola announced an new improved Lapdock, the 100.

The main issue we had here with the Atrix one was its cost. It was so expensive it was ridiculous. Motorola are saying the Lapdock 100 will be more affordable which is good news.

The problem is that it was announced as coming to some U.S carrier but no mention of the UK so we will have to wait and see what happens.

It looks alright though.

Capped contracts on Tesco Mobile


I saw a TV advert last night for Tesco Mobile. Now not only was it a very nice advert but the fact they are offering capped contracts stood out for me. What a superb idea. Do any other networks offer this? If so then I have never seen it marketed.

In this day and age most children, maybe 10 years and up, carry a mobile phone. I would imagine that the majority of these kids use PAYG which in itself is the near perfect solution as you don’t want the little angels running up high bills. However, surely having a contract with a cap on the maximum usage would be an easier option. No more topping up and chances are you may well get a better deal on a contract than PAYG in terms of monthly allowance. One of the benefits is that switching to Tesco’s capped contract is that it is sim only meaning if you have an unlocked phone or one running on O2 it is just a case of putting the new sim card in and away you go. With the option of a 12 month or rolling 30 day contact it couldn’t be easier.

So i just thought I would highlight Tesco Mobile to you if you are a parent. It may not be the perfect solution but looking at the Tesco Mobile website it looks pretty attractive.
