T-Mobile launches unique You Fix plan


T-Mobile today announces the launch of You Fix, a unique new mobile phone plan that combines the benefits of pay monthly with the flexibility and spend control of pay as you go. The only plan of its kind in the UK, You Fix is available from today through T-Mobile stores, from the online shop and telesales.

Customers signing up to You Fix will get a set allowance of minutes, texts and a Flexible Booster for a fixed monthly amount, on a short 12 month plan. For any more minutes or texts needed, customers can simply top-up as they would on pay as you go – meaning they’ll have the peace of mind that they’ll never pay more than they expect. Customers can also choose from a range of great value smartphones, including Android and BlackBerry, for a small payment upfront or for free.

You Fix has been designed to meet the changing needs of customers. Research for the brand has shown that nearly one quarter (23 per cent) of 11 – 20 year olds questioned have a smartphone, with 45% wanting a smartphone if they don’t have one already. This has resulted in a shift towards a greater appetite for pay monthly plans (11 per cent rise in the last 12 months) as an increasing numbers of parents meet their teenager’s demands for smartphones – however pay monthly plans don’t allow the same level of spend control as they’re used to on pay as you go, as a You Fix plan does.

The Nokia 500 announced

Nokia 500 2

Nokia have today announced the 500, a low cost Smartphone packing a 1GHz processor, changeable back covers plus the Symbian Anna operating system.

Full details from the Nokia blog below:

If you’re looking for a low-cost, full-function smartphone, then the Nokia 500 should meet your needs and more. As you can see from the pictures, this is a touch-screen phone. It’s got a 3.2-inch capacitive touch display, with a screen resolution of 640 x 360 pixels. On the back, there’s a 5-megapixel camera that can also capture video – ideal for holiday snaps and days out.

The Nokia 500 comes with the latest Symbian Anna OS, offering a refreshed UI, a better browser and split-screen messaging. As you’d expect, preinstalled you’ll find the latest version of Nokia Maps for free drive and walk navigation, plus you can download every other app you might need from the Store. If you’re anything like us, then your first week with the phone will be occupied filling and then emptying the phone of dozens of apps. The music player is complemented by an FM radio receiver and Internet Radio access to all the music and news you might need, not just from your own country, but from around the world. Social Media is catered for through the Social app, bringing friends’ updates to your homescreen.

Under the hood, there’s the 1GHz processor – allowing for plenty of oomph when you’re multitasking lots of apps or doing something extra-demanding. There’s 2GB of storage memory, plus the possibility of increasing this by a further 32GB using the micro-SD card slot. Like all our recent smartphones, it offers pentaband radio coverage so world travellers need never be out of touch, 3G data up to HSUPA speeds [that’s a whopping maximum speed of 5.8Mbps nowadays, by the way]. There’s also Bluetooth 2.1 and Wi-Fi b/g, as you’d expect. The phone measures 111.3 x 53.8 x 14.1mm and weighs in at 93g – lighter than any other Symbian^3 phone to date.

T-Mobile MyTouch 4G Slide unboxing video

t-mobile-mytouch-4g-slideThe T-Mobile MyTouch 4G Slide has been the subject of rumour and speculation for weeks but the device finally went on sale in the US last week.

The T-Mobile branded handset, manufactured by HTC, definitely sits at the top end of the market and in terms of specification is similar to the HTC Sensation albeit that the 4G slide has a full hardware QWERTY keyboard which, as the name suggests, slides out from underneath the screen.

With the QWERTY keyboard you might think that the MyTouch was all about productivity but tucked away on the back is an 8 megapixel camera and dual LED flash. Whilst that in itself may not seem too out of the ordinary, thanks to its clever backside illuminated sensor it’s claimed to be "the most advanced camera of any smartphone" with features such as zero shutter-lag, SweepShot panorama mode and HDR modes.

Whilst the T-Mobile MyTouch 4G Slide is USA only, for the moment at least, we’ve got one in to review, starting with the unboxing video below.
