Sony Ericsson MBW-200 Bluetooth Watch unboxing video

BTWatch-7 Something a little out of the ordinary for you for a Sunday afternoon. There are tons of Bluetooth devices out there and there have been a number of Bluetooth watches in the past so when I first heard about the Sony Ericsson MBW-200 I thought it would be some ugly, chunky affair that no-one would be seen dead wearing. However, further research in to the product revealed something quite different. The MBW-200 looks quite like an ‘ordinary’ watch, pretty attractive and functional as a timepiece without being to large or overly garish.

I decided to ask Sony Ericsson if I could have one to look at. I think the request surprised them, they even queried that I meant the Bluetooth watch when I asked for the MBW-200!

Whilst there wont be a full blown review of the MBW-200 I will write up my thoughts and comments of the watch once I have had chance to give it a proper try.

Take a look at the unboxing video I recorded below, you’ll see a quick ‘tour’ of the watch as well as seeing how it charges and the overall packaging, which I think is really decent. I’d say it would make a decent gift for anyone that loves their gadgets!

All U.S. Android phones to get 2.1 upgrade


Androidandme is reporting that all phone released with Android in the U.S. are to be upgraded to the latest 2.1 firmware. This is a pretty big deal and something of a commendable action from Google. Whilst some of the older phones, like the 1st gen G1 and Mytouch 3G, will not receive more ambitious features like live wallpapers or the upcoming Flash 10.1, they will still be running off the 2.1 firmware. The big drawback is that some will require a complete reinstall, i.e. a wipe or a PC based install. Still, it’s great news and one can only home it will be the same for those devices in the UK.

LG’s Windows Phone 7 Series … phone


Engadget have published a whole rake of pictures for a prototype LG phone running Windows Phone 7 Series, a little over a week after Mobile World Congress. Whilst Microsoft were unable to answer most of the direct questions on the platform it seems they were being truthful about the OS being in a usable state. My suspicion was that they had put together an interactive flash demo to show off what they had hoped would be the final product. Instead I now think they sent out a tonne of spin doctors to answer questions on a build they hadn’t touched.

Nexus One coming to Vodafone in April


The Telegraph is reporting that the Nexus One will launch on Vodafone in April for a non-disclosed price, though it’s "likely to be priced very similarly to comparable smartphones such as the iPhone." It’s no secret that Vodafone’s picking up Google’s Snapdragon-powered beast. Coincidentally, this is going to collide head-to-head with the European release of the Desire, HTC’s remix of the Nexus One with Sense and an optical pad thrown in, so it’ll be fascinating to see which of these monsters comes out on top at retail.

O2 revamping their tarrifs, but is there value?


O2 has updated their tarrifs with a bit of a revamp that looks set to see some folks worse off in the long run. In a press release today, O2 announced their Sim only plans for the iPhone however there is much more going on behind the scenes.

O2 will launch a two-year Apple iPhone tariff for £25 per month. The tariff will include 100 minutes and unlimited texts. Handset costs are currently unknown. The iPhone is also expected to be made available with its Simplicity SIM-only tariffs for the first time, with the device available at full price.

However, O2 will drop its free unlimited bolt-on deal, previously available £35 per month or above deals. All O2 tariffs will now include unlimited texts only instead of other little perks like on-network calls, internet, weekend calls, texts and wi-fi. Their text bundles will also loose any picture message bundles. Voicemails will now be  charged at a rate of 10p per minute if outside of their minute bundle.

BlackBerry and other data centric devices will be hardest hit, as customers will be required to pay £7.50 for BlackBerry data or £5 for standard data. Little incentives and promotions to new customers including up to eight months free line rental on selected tariffs and handsets will be introduced.

They will launch its first unlimited calls and text deal for consumers. Costs will range from £45 per month on a 12 month Simplicity deal to £65 per month on an 18 month deal. Read on for the full press release:
