Interesting. I was wondering whether to upgrade my phone to a bigger screen or keep it and buy the new Nexus 7 instead and tether it via bluetooth.
Depending when this VLP comes out, it may well be an option.

"The Best of the Reg 2011 pulls together some of El Reg' best writing on the biggest topics of the year, laced with some of its funniest. It costs £5.74, less than a turkey dinner, AND you'll still want to look at it after Boxing Day."
No, the funniest thing is that it costs £5.74.
Anything at all is more than I'd pay.
I'm not in IT, in fact I'm a lorry driver and so you could put me in the "thick" bracket but the fact it's on blogspot as well, for christ's sake. BTW, I'm quite sure I work longer hours than a lot of you over-paid muppets as well so yes, people are thick and ill-informed. The only thing I regret is mentioning it to them and then having to explain something they'll never get in a thousand years.
Is that they have to be very lucky where the rover lands. I mean they can put it pretty much where they want but it'd be like some alien race plonking a rover down here in the middle of the harshest desert where nothing could live versus say, a temperate part of the world where life thrives currently but would be gone when said aliens want to explore. If there was/is/could be life on Mars in the future then they've got a strike gold as if were and get it in exactly the right place.
When they say "While we’re excited to offer these new features to Android tablets, we have more work to do before we can deliver them to other device types including phones. Until then, we’ve decided not to release Honeycomb to open source." In other words, when it gets released to phones they'll open it up.
A poor troll by an Apple Fanboi.

I've no idea what your point is? I wish I could walk down the pavement out side my house without having to avoid all of the ILLEGALLY driven and parked cars on the pavement."
Move somewhere less pikey.
"So O2's free Wi-Fi network really is free at the point of delivery, and we can probably put up with receiving a text message every time we try to use it, though if that turns out to be every time we walk past a store offering O2's branded access then it could get too annoying to tolerate."
It sounds like a nightmare in the making what with constant connections/disconnections, SMS, MMS (not that they'll) track you everywhere and also O2 lets you use the Cloud for free on a wi-fi and data tariff but is that still the case now that Sky have bought it (the cloud).
Personally, I've never been able to get past the landing page on any of their so-called free offerrings and I'm considering if this is as bad as I think.
