Sony Xperia Z4 and Z4 Ultra heading to CES 2015?

It’s generally accepted that the Sony Xperia Z4 will land in the next few months, but the $1m question is: Is CES 2015 in Las Vegas - January - too soon? Should we expect a Mobile World Congress – February – debut instead?

Not according to some anonymous tipster guy, who says not only that the Sony Xperia Z4 will launch at CES, but that it’ll be joined by the Xperia Z4 Ultra. Huh?

Is BT about to buy O2? BT says ‘maybe’

Is BT about to buy O2? BT says ‘maybe’

Lewis Curdie  22 hours ago

The older readers among you might recall a time when O2 was actually part of BT, as BT Cellnet. The two went their separate ways in 2002 and O2 was born, before being snapped up by Spanish telecoms behemoth Telefonica in 2005.

Things are potentially on the verge of going full circle, with BT confirming that it’s in early talks concerning the takeover of two UK mobile networks, one confirmed as O2.

WSJ: Samsung contemplating ‘major leadership shake-up’

WSJ: Samsung contemplating ‘major leadership shake-up’

Lewis Curdie  2 days ago

A couple of weeks ago, we were saying that Samsung Mobile boss JK Shin had to make do with a paltry £400,000 salary for Q3 this year. Oh, the humanity!

There’s yet more bad news here as sources of The Wall Street Journal say Samsung is considering big changes at the top. Eek.

Facebook Groups iOS review

Facebook Groups iOS review

Lewis Curdie  2 days ago

I’ve written quite extensively about Facebook – in particular Facebook apps – here on Mobot, most recently in A trifecta of terribleness, a rambling feature covering the various irksome features of Facebook Messenger, WhatsApp, and of course plain old Facebook.

Somewhat surprisingly, there’s now a third prong to the Facebook app assault (WhatsApp being entirely independent), with the introduction of Facebook Groups. What the…?

Review of the week

Review of the week

Lewis Curdie  4 days ago

What happened this week? The 0-10 Oakland Raiders beat the 7-3 Kansas City Chiefs; that was pretty weird. We won’t dwell too much on Scotland vs. England in the soccerball; that was just a friendly.

In mobile (that is, after all, why we’re here), Nokia surprised us with an Android Lollipop tablet, the N1, and Finnish startup Jolla secured over $1m in three days for its own take on the tablet thing.

Bit of a strange one here, but bear with us. On O2 Refresh, you can grab a refurbished Samsung Galaxy S5 in gold for £29.99 up front. We don’t care about the Airtime Plan, because we’re going to cancel that immediately and pay off the monthly £10 Device Plan, so that’s £10 (Device Plan) x 24 (months) = £240 + £29.99 (up front) = £269.99 for a Samsung Galaxy S5.

Jolla Tablet secures over m funding in 72 hours

I’d admittedly grown to feel a little sorry for Jolla, a group of well-meaning individuals seemingly doomed to live in the shadow of the big money-grabbing mobile players.

But the Finns clearly don’t need any sympathy, as their Jolla Tablet has secured a ridiculous $1.1 MILLION funding in just three days.

Google patents app for real-time conversations in two languages

Google patents app for real-time conversations in two languages

Lewis Curdie  4 days ago

Having spent a couple of decades growing up without all this newfangled mobile technology, I find it endlessly amusing that you no longer need to know anything; just “Google it”. In that sense, the internet’s almost like external storage for your brain.

Similarly, Google wants to make things easier for us unilingual idiots, with an app that enables a real-time, local, screen-based conversation with someone else in an entirely different language. Sacré bleu!

Gorilla Glass 4: drop your phone from 1m and the screen (probably) won’t smash

Gorilla Glass 4: drop your phone from 1m and the screen (probably) won’t smash

Lewis Curdie  5 days ago

Corning’s Gorilla Glass 3 is found in a multitude of phones, from the wallet-friendly Motorola Moto G, to high-end flagships like the Samsung Galaxy S5, LG G3 and HTC One M8.

The inevitable Gorilla Glass 4 has been officially announced, and needless to say it’s “dramatically improved” with the headline feature being its ability to laugh off 1m drops on rough surfaces. Er, most of the time.
