You need to use for a week or so and then it is very natural. Close to BB10.

Sony Xperia Z Ultra: The quad-core 2.2GHz MEGA SCREEN PHONDLESLAB

Jah

Is it really a phone?

Is a Range Rover really a car? Like cars, device manufacturers are creating devices for different segments and creating sub-brands like "Note" for Samsung. The Z Ultra is really like a Personal size Filofax and the idea is that it is a smaller tablet as opposed to a bigger phone. It may fill a niche or may create a small market like the Note 1, 2 & 3.

Living with a 41-megapixel 808 PureView: Symbian's heroic last stand

Jah

Re: And why are Samsung setting up a Finnish R&D centre?

Correct - failure was a management issues. The mangers did not have a clear vision. They started wiith a great portfolio including the original Series 90 platform. This could have been Nokia's iPhone in 2005/6, but they killed it.

World's richest hobo (Apple) has worked 'tax-free' in Ireland since '80s

Jah

Re: Easy answer then

Every company in the world could do this but they choose not to because all rules can be worked around. In the US and UK, and other countries, we fund social and defence services from taxes. That is the purpose of tax. By actively working around the rules all you do is demonstrate lack of social responsibility.

Apple cored: Samsung sells 10 million Galaxy S4 in a month

Jah

iPhone no longer compelling

Samsung would not have sold 10 million if the iPhone 5 & 4s were competitive. That is what the sales figures really say. This trend will continue until Apple's next iPhone in September.

HTC One Black - no stock

The HTC One has been difficult to buy and the Black version nearly impossible to get. So HTC will do well in the next quarter look-back but not as well it could've done!

Re: Just had an Asus Vivo delivered (#2 on the list)

Totally agree. Now have Windows 8 Pro on my Vivo Tab TF810. I normally get over 14 hours of battery life. Great portable laptop and versatile tablet with a Wacom digitiser all for £700! Bargain.

Nokia on 'brink of failure', warns analyst

Jah

Samsung sold more of their niche Galaxy Note Smartphones in Q1 than Nokia sold for all their entire WP offerings. This is failure - Nokia needs a plan B for sure.

Ministers ex-Business People, really?

I cannot understand how Ministers make such silly decisions. I thought many had Business backgrounds; they should be looking at how Government expenditure maximises economic benefits not just looking at drive down costs!

I really like my 7710 and 9500. I believe the 9300 was a sales success, however.

Google's Moto move spells iPhone doom

Good Analysis, perhaps Google will attack as well

I think with Apple, the best defence is attack, as Nokia has already proved. Google should be able to sue Apple until Apple agrees to some cross-licensing agreements.

How is this situation different from the Windows PC market?

We will see further differentiation. Sony does well with Vaio so why can't HTC/SE/Sammy do the same with Android?

Mole says Apple A5 chip runs too hot for iPhone

Jah

Its late

Well the next iPhone is late. So there must be a reason for this - eiher Apple are doing something really amazing and it is a bit tricky or they are having some fundamental technical problems with their design (a bit like the initial atenna problems and the white casing with the iphone 4).

Vintage Psion prototype: Yours for £85,000

Android 5mx / Revo - yes!

Happy to pay the original £499 for a modern colour touch screen Psion style device.

Apple have warped the market with the slate form factor and Nokia and Sony Ericsson have wasted what they inherited from Psion.

Nokia deal to 'rocket Windows Phone 7 past iPhone'

Jah

Content content content

Nokia at one point understood that the next big play was content. Unless M$ and Nokia tie-up more content than Apple and Anroid they wont increase market share.

Sad but true that the modern Smartphone is actually an entertainment server and not the PDA with great communicaiton that Symbian was designed for. But some of us still want that but we have no choice now.

Why Nokia failed: 'Wasted 2,000 man years' on UIs that didn't work

Jah

S90 & S80

You should use the S80 and S90 devices (Nokia 9500, 9300 & 7710) to see what Nokia achieved in 2004/5. It was remarkable, especially the Nokia 7710 (high res and fast). Nokia has lacked vision and strong management since the great period to 2005 and this has allowed it to make a series of poor decisions. And now with Win Phone 7 it will die. So sad.

After Black Friday, Nokia acts to halt share slide

Jah

Perhaps the market thought the answer was to be Anroid

Nokia have nil skills in Win Phone software. Elop not only did not choose Android, easier for a MeeGo company to adopt, but also reduced Nokia to a "business", that is, strategy is simply a business case. Wrong! Nokia is much more than a company. It is the flagship European tech company and a company that once had a vision and was innovative. Now its just a hardware company and a distribution network. No longer a hub of European tech. Sorry to see the demise of Nokia.

It's official: Nokia bets on Microsoft for smartphones

Jah
Unhappy

Shame Nokia wasted investment in the past

Nokia killed Hildon & their Series S90 line a while ago - these today would have given fruit to competitive media devices. Symbian is a capable platform but Nokia have not managed to exploit it and therefore its all too late now. Win Phone 7 won't give Nokia a differentiation in the long term. If I were CEO, I would keep Symbian and keep developing it and dig out some of the older developers and engineers that were the visionary types that gave us S80 and S90.

UK.gov doesn't know its IT spend – but insists it will spend less

Jah

Cost and Value, not just cost!

1. Obtaining a discount from suppliers will only result in less being done, so what have we gained?

2. Who will police the reduced contract values with IT suppliers?

3. Why not seek better value for money, that is, improved effectivess in all steps in the supply chain and that includes scoping sensible projects of a manageable size.

Does the Government atually understand the IT business?

Gov to resellers: Glory bonanza secrecy days are over. For real

SMEs

You did not appreciate the reference to "IT Service Providers". These are the young unexperienced "management consultants" that Government are happy to hire as they are not labled as Management Consultants. True Consultants have high ethical values and want to work to deliver public goods - being from an SME means you need to deliver results to stay in business. The issue is that Government and the Cabinet Office are actually sacking the most experienced external help in favour of the large IT supplier staff. Think about what this really means.

Forgot about SMEs, again!

Government and Civil Servants are more likely now then ever before to give contracts to large suppliers rather than to SMEs. The Cabinet Office are encourging Departmernts / Agnecies to cancel contracts with SMEs. Government thinks "IT Service Providers" are good but "Management Consultants" from SMEs are bad. Even though it is the SMEs that have staff that could help Government get better VfM from the large IT suppliers. What madness. Pretend that we are saving money by cutting costs but no one cares about the reduction in VfM. Its never been so good for the profit driven mega IT companies!

Apple sued over hot iPad shutdowns

Jah

Its all to with the rubber case!

The standard Apple case for the iPad is made of rubber and it is probably causing the iPad to over heat. Perhaps Apple should recall the rubber cases and offer refunds!

(you could probably make 4 iphone 4 rubber cases from every iPad case!)

Cheap deal direct from T-mobile site

The £10 per month is on the T-mobile site. You need to select the Desire phone and get past all the recommended options and seek out all the plan options and you'll see it. Same deal for all T-mobile customers.
