It has been about a month since the Nexus S was released on Vodafone and already Voda have decided to lower the $0 upfront cap to $65 from $85. They’ve also dropped the monthly repayments on the $45 Infinite Plan to $10 from $15. No doubt Voda will be feeling the heat from Optus with their upcoming launch of the HTC Incredible S which will be sitting around the same price point. Whatever the reason, it’s always nice to see good Android devices getting cheaper and cheaper.

Now that the last of the Android 2.2 updates for the Samsung Galaxy S have been pushed out to Telstra customers (who were the last to receive it), Samsung have uploaded the User Manual of the Galaxy S that’s suited for Android 2.3 “Gingerbread”. What does this mean? Well, inquisitive reader, this means that the Android 2.3 update for the Galaxy S is coming, not soon, but it’s coming. To put this into perspective, the original release date for the 2.2 update was September ’10 and the last update went out to Telstra customers about two weeks ago. So don’t[Read More...]
With the Galaxy S 2 not very far away, Samsung and the carriers, are stepping up their moves to clear the remaining stock of the original Android powerhouse, the Galaxy S. Vodafone and Three have dropped the handset to $0 on a $29 and now Virgin have joined the fight, adding the Galaxy S to their Big Cap lineup, along with a $6 handset repayment. This brings the handset in at $35 a month for $450 of credit and 200MB of data. Great deal? I think so, what do you guys think?
You may never heard of the INQ Cloud Touch, but you may have heard about the mysterious ‘Facebook Phone‘, well this is it. The INQ Cloud Touch is an Android powered device that is so heavily customised to be Facebook centric that you’d be forgiven for not recognising the underlying Android OS. If you want to learn more about the customisation I highly recommend you check out INQ’s site, it’s pretty impressive. The Cloud Touch is coming to Australia through Vodafone, which may just send people addicted to the Social Network insane with happiness. There’s currently no pricing or information[Read More...]

Well Ladies and Gentlemen, the HTC Sensation, aka HTC Pyramid, is finally official and boy, we didn’t see it coming at all! The 1.2GHz Dual-Core powered beast, with its massive 4.3″ Super LCD display is expected to launch in the middle of May on Vodafone UK and other retailers in June. HTC are pushing this device as a multimedia mogul, which will put it head to head with the Xperia Arc which is also another amazing multimedia centric device. It’s also dubbed a ‘Super Phone’. Hit the break for more details and videos.
You know what HTC, don’t even bother with your HTC Sensation announcement in three hours, your partners have already done all the announcing for you. Vodafone UK has jumped in on the HTC Sensation leaking act, by making public their order page for the device which you obviously can’t order yet. Though you’ll be happy to know the 1.2GHz Dual-core Snapdragon CPU is listed, along with the 4.3″ qHD display which will be of the Super LCD variety and 8MP shooter. There’s also 4GB of internal memory and a handy 8GB MicroSD thrown in for good measure. So if anyone[Read More...]
I first laid my hands on the Google/Samsung Nexus S from Vodafone on Friday (25th) and from over a weeks use, I can straight out say I’ve been somewhat impressed, more with the software than the hardware, but it has been a positive experience overall. I covered some of the main problems I have with the Nexus S initially in my first impressions post, so be sure to check that out as well as this review, which you can get into after the break.
Fellow Aussie and Tech Lover, Trevor Long has posted a video that gives us a quick comparison of the upcoming Galaxy Tab 10.1v from Vodafone against the iPad 2. Overall both Tablets can really hold their own, though the Android Market lacks the needed support for Tablet-friendly applications compared to the App Store on the iPad 2. Trevor makes note of how great the browser is on the Galaxy Tab 10.1v, saying how it is no different to browsing on your desktop computer thanks to full Flash 10.2 support and tabbed browsing. He also feels the Galaxy Tab 10.1v looses[Read More...]
With Samsung going ahead with the launch of their two variants of the Galaxy Tab 10.1, we thought we’d help you out determining the difference between the two (spoiler alert: the image above shows it all). The variant being launched in Australia through Vodafone is dubbed the 10.1v as opposed to the 10.1. The 10.1v is slightly smaller in terms of length and width but is 10.9mm thick, whereas the 10.1 is a paper-thin 8.6mm. The 10.1v also has a 8MP rear-facing camera capable of recording 1080p video at 24fps, whereas the 10.1 only has a 3.15MP camera snapping 720p.[Read More...]
After letting out some anger at a certain Australian Postage company, I finally received the Google Nexus S from Vodafone last Friday and have been putting it through its paces ever since. There’ll be a bit of a more in-depth write-up later on, but I thought I’d fill you in on the important details now. Enjoy.
Update: Data charges will apply if you don’t have allocated data on your cap, so head to the nearest Wi-Fi network to save yourself any extra costs. Remember way back in January when Vodafone said the HTC Legend would receive the 2.2 OTA update in February, well if you’re not currently aware it’s now March and the update is finally on its way to your device. No, we’re not pulling your leg, Vodafone has confirmed via their blog that the update is headed across the 3G (or Wi-Fi) radio waves to your device starting 12PM tomorrow — you’ll receive a[Read More...]
Update: A few errors wehere made in this article. My fault, sorry everyone. While getting my information from a number of different sites, I must have got a little confused. The 8.9 indeed comes with the Bluetooth 3.0 and the Tab 10.1 with 2.1, even though that doesn’t make any sense. Also the new 10.1 and 8.9 have a 3 megapixel camera, the older 10.1 still has the 8mp shooter packed inside. MicroSd slot is also included on the new models, whereas the old, it is not. Like clockwork, Samsung have held their Unpacked event at CTIA and as expected[Read More...]
