Win a MOTOLUXE with T-Mobile and Motorola

Moto What's your line

Motorola and T-Mobile are teaming up with a new and funky app which will see them give away a brand new MOTOLUXE.

Every week for 10 weeks, they are asking people to take part in their ‘What’s your line up?’ app to be in with a chance to win the MOTOLUXE ( 

The app lets you create a ‘Social Graph’ – a cool graphic that shows you who your best friends are on Facebook, brings them together in a beautiful collage and lets you share your graph online. You can find out who you interact with the most on Facebook with the automatic selection button, or choose those nearest and dearest to you via the manual option.

The app is also a fun way of demonstrating the MotoSwitch application that comes pre-loaded on MOTOLUXE handsets. With MotoSwitch, the MOTOLUXE learns who you talk to and which apps you use the most, and puts all that information front and centre. The more frequently you communicate with someone, the bigger their icon becomes!

Samsung Galaxy S III delays

Galaxy S III

Set to be one of the best selling smartphones yet, the Samsung Galaxy S III is not off to a great start. Numerous sources are reporting that the pebble blue variant of the device which officially goes on sale tomorrow is now delayed along with the white 32GB version.

Clove have stated that they are expecting stock of the pebble blue GSIII to arrive on June 5th although at present this date is still to be confirmed. They are also reporting a one day delay with the white 16GB version so if you did pre order it looks like you may not receive it until June 1st.

The reason for the delay is not clear but I would imagine there are a lot of very unhappy Android fans out there today.
