Earlier today BlackBerry UK released, via their YouTube channel, three new TV adverts which follow on from their first in the latest marketing campaign that we saw a couple of weeks ago.

These new three are shorter than the original but feature specific phone features or devices. NFC, web browsing and BBM Music are all targeted and they are incorporated with pushing the BlackBerry Curve 9320, Bold 9900 and Bold 9790.

Nice to see more of the good stuff coming our way.

Sony Xperia U – available now on Three


Another relatively low cost, compact Android smartphone hits the selves today. The Sony Xperia U may not be the biggest but inside it is packing some pretty nice specs.

The Sony Xperia U is now available online at and from tomorrow (22nd May 2012) in all Three stores.

With an illuminating strip at the base of the phone which changes colour to match the dominant colour in photos and music album covers, this unique phone is great for people who want to stand out from the crowd. The phone also comes with customisable caps that slot on to the bottom of the phone and add an extra level of personalisation.
The Sony Xperia U’s 3.5″ display with Sony’s Mobile BRAVIA Engine technology ensures that photos, apps, web pages and games are always crystal clear. The five megapixel camera with Exmoor R sensor technology allows people to take perfect pictures in low light.
