The newest model of tablet to be released by Sony is being billed the lightest, slimmest Sony tablet to date. Sony are making several bold claims about the Xperia Z4, and it looks as if quite a few of them could make this tablet one to keep an eye on in coming weeks. The Xperia Z4 will come with one of the longest life batteries on the market, with a video playback time of more than 16 hours, along with a powerful 64 bit processor. The Z4 will be available with a 10.1 inch screen and the display quality will run at the top industry level 2K screen. The Xperia Z2 was a fairly successful product, but lacked the speed and processing power of some of the more advanced models available. At 389 grams, the Xperia Z4 is the lightest tablet on the market and at 6.1 mm thick, it […]

The question that springs to most customers’ minds when looking at which next generation mobile device they will buy is: how do they compare? The newest Samsung Galaxy offering has plenty of new and changed features, but how do they stack up against the iPhone and the rest of the market? This new Galaxy will be thinner than any of its competitors which in turn has made it lighter than any of them too. This is a good sign for customers who don’t want the heavy bulk of an iPhone sitting in pockets or bags. The phone will feature wireless charging, using an easily transportable dock that the phone rests on. No more plugging and unplugging and hopefully no more changing the plug attachment with every new model. There are high hopes for the wireless charging revolution that seems to be making its way through most of the up and […]

Apple addicts will be happy to hear that a release date for the much rumoured and whispered about iPhone 7has been finalised. September 8th 2015 has been given by Apple as the release date, and this has created a storm of speculation and wishing from fans and critics alike. This follows Apple’s trend of releasing their products on the second Tuesday of September. Much of the speculation has been centred on what the new iPhone will be called. With most of the preceding phones, the new number has been followed by an ‘S’ version, a more stripped down, affordable option. But many commentators have suggested that this will not be the case, and we will not be seeing an iPhone 6s, but a brand new iPhone 7. This is based on the ideas that this new iPhone will be about emerging technology, future integration and the next generation of mobile […]

Despite being in the midst of a potential merger with BT, EE has committed £1.5bn to expand its coverage and speed of their 4G (LTE) mobile data service. Currently, EE’s 4G mobile network is available to 80% of the UK population and it will reach 98% by the end of 2015. The company is also working with the government to extend its geographic coverage of mobile networks from the current 80% to 90% by 2017. In line with the new investment commitment, EE has set forth a new manifesto called Signalling the Future . Some of the points are listed below: Voice and 4G data available to 90% of the UK landmass Mobile voice coverage of over 90% to the UK’s 245,000 miles of road. This is currently 82%. Executions of low frequency 810MHz spectrum deployment across the EE rural network to expand EE’s reach by over 1,500 square miles. […]

EE, which could potentially become part of BT, has commenced their long planned trial of ultrafast 400Mbps capable 4G LTE-Advanced (LTE-A) based mobile broadband technology. They have dubbed it as 4G+ and it will go live in Wembley stadium next month. Currently the best EE broadband can be found in areas of Liverpool, Birmingham and Manchester where 300Mbps capable 4G service is being developed. The 400Mbps/ 4G+ service is also similar but with a few upgrades. The Wembley test is being done with the use of Qualcomm’s Snapdragon 810 CAT processor to combine 3 different EE spectrum bands.  All these projects are part of EE’s investment commitment of £1.5bn into their networks over a 3 year period. This means their 4G service will reach around 90% of the UK population by 2017. However, it’s important to note that other service providers will also be funding their own LTE-A upgrades. However, […]

The mobile telecommunications sector is one which is heavily regulated, monitored and checked due to its prominence and popularity, as well as the personal nature of the information being shared across the various platforms. Social Media applications and sites are much less so, and the mobile providers have had enough. Social sharing apps like WhatsApp, which is owned by Facebook, and services like Skype and Viber (free internet calling services) are largely unregulated and are coming under fire now. These concerns come just in time for the Ofcom review which happens every 10 years in the UK. Mobile operators will argue that they face very real competition issues with unregulated and free sites. These sites, the mobile services claim, do not have anything like the same regulatory pressure. As a result of the lack of regulation, there is much more scope for innovation, freedom of trial and error and no […]

With the March release date quickly approaching, much of the rumour and speculation surrounding the new Samsung Galaxy S6 is getting louder and louder. Most of the noise being made ahead of the launch is centred on the functionality upgrades that Samsung seem to have been hinting at. The advertising strap line is now “Stop less, discover more” which many mobile experts have said is a hint at longer battery life and possibly the emergence of wireless charging capabilities. Many comparisons of modern smart phones and older ‘brick’ type mobiles give a lot of weight to the previously week long battery life that the old Nokia phones had. Compared to that, most modern smartphones will not last a full day if they are being used to a high level. And so, an improved battery life would silence many critics and put modern mobile devices on the track to completely wiping […]
