Chinese 'Superphone' manufacturer declares war on Apple


That was my thinking too, seeing as Sony dont seem to be in a rush to replace the Z Ultra.

I am also considering buying a new ZU, as they can be had for not much over £200 nowdays, and they're still powerful enough.



Been doing it for years

I've frequently used 2nd user kit, at one point a previous employer was getting 2nd user kit for pennies in the pound.

From memory

Dell desktop £39.00

r710 Servers £500

MD3000i £2000 (ish depending on disks)

We built up a good working relationship with a reseller, and made damn sure our backup strategies worked (LTO5 Tape drives £500)

Occasionally projects required a longer lead time, while resellers hunted down the kit we required.

I had a rather nice BOTH T Shirt a while back.

Admittedly I used it to wipe clean the dipstick for the boat engine, but it came up nice and shiny.

I'd buy another, and maybe one for the gearbox dipstick too.

Rogue Android: We show you how BlackBerry's pain can be your gain


BB10 is a capable OS

The staff here thank you, due to this article I have been able to provide them with the business app they have been clamoring for since our last phone upgrade.

Pocket Frogs

What will probably kill this dead before it goes much further, is a lot of apps that also appear in the BB World market are pay for on Blackberry. so getting these apps for free from the Android Market is probably legally the same as genocide or something. I suspect lawyers will be warming up the outrage bus as I type.

Re: I'm having one of these bad boys

Singing on the dotted line(sic).....

Not a typo.. I ratify all contracts with a few show tunes.


I'm having one of these bad boys

I have just emailed my EE presales rep to tell him that carrying these is a prerequisite to me singing on the dotted line. I forgot the smilies.

I'm a big fan of the Z10 (I've had a demo one for a couple of weeks), but my personal phone is a Galaxy note and sub 5" screens don't cut it any more.

OK, so we paid a bill late, but did BT have to do this?



Today I'm taking great delight in telling BT that they're not getting our 55 mobile contract.

They're at the current whiny "I must admit I'm surprised" stage.. However the boss won't let me reply with "yes but you're shit, and you insist I use BT Local business, and they're the only organisation that are shitter than you."

Wait till i tell them they've lost the ISDN and landlines too.

Happy days.

It's been simply years since I tried Linux, and to be honest didn't have the patience to persevere. I have to say, i'm impressed with the improvements.

Re: I'm considering getting one.

I have a "spare" Galaxy Note as well :sheepish grin::

I want a bright red handset for a spare.... Who am I kidding? I want a Lumina 920 but the wife would kill me....

MUST RESIST bright coloured shiny....


I'm considering getting one.

My personal contract is up for renewal, Now I have a much loved Galaxy Note on that SIM at the moment, but as a standby phone they certainly look the biz.

It's either one of these or a Lumina 920.



With all the wildlife that is simply waiting to rid the country of as many humans as it can, it never ceased to amaze me how they ran round screaming like a five year old, at the very sight of a "European Wasp"

Samsung Galaxy Note 2 review


I can't believe I'm actually excited about a phone release.


Ten iPhone 5 challengers


Re: Eluga Power

Very true, but my original Motorola Defy has survived a couple of dunkings.

The drowned Note, was solely due to me getting excited about getting onto the water, and forgetting to transfer the SIM into the Defy (Which I duely packed into a waterproof flare type box). I cried like a gurl.

Also as my boss like to remind me, I'm employed to be avaliable 24/7/365 so I can have a handset at the helm, and the odd bit of spray / rain doesn't bother it.

As I'm already rapidly going off topic. My fanboiism for life, to the first company that uses inductive charging and Stereo over Bluetooth to provide a proper smartphone (W8, Android, anything else) that can survive depths of 5 meters for an hour.


Re: Eluga Power

A very stupid name, but an IP57 rated handset with a 5" screen.....

I'd seriously like one of those as my boaty phone. The sinking feeling you get when you are standing up to your waist in seawater, and you remember which pocket your Galaxy Note is left in, is not one I want to repeat.
