This here is a great example of why the Nexus Series of phones are the ones to get if you want your Android updates quicker than everyone else. It was just over a week ago when Google announced that Android 2.3.4 would bring Video Calling and Voice Chat to Google Talk, which is quite cool and has been long-awaited, even though it has been available for Honeycomb Tablets since day one. Vodafone has just pushed out this 2.3.4 update to the Nexus S which they’ve been advertising quite aggressively lately. A notification will appear in your notifications window when the[Read More...]

Following on from the rumour post yesterday, regarding the Xoom, the Atrix and Optus. Delimiter has reported that Optus, are in fact going to be taking the Xoom starting June. This leaves the Atrix tied up in a exclusive agreement with Telstra, my guess is for three months. This means the three major networks in Australia, Vodafone, Optus and Telstra, now have 10 inch, Honeycomb driven tablets at their disposal. Let the games begin I say. Pricing is still yet to be announced, when it is, be sure to check in with us, as we will report on it for[Read More...]

Last week, we reported on the news of Vodafone testing Gingerbread, on a number of handsets. Now Optus has joined in, saying the are currently testing Gingerbread (2.3) on The Samsung Galaxy S and Galaxy Tab. We’re now testing the Gingerbread (2.3) software for the Samsung Galaxy S and Galaxy Tab. Keep an eye on our feed for updates. With the Gingerbread packing Samsung Galaxy S 2, kinda on it’s way. We can only hope these updates, on both Vodafone and Optus, hit customers devices sooner rather then later.
It was only 3 days ago that we reported that Vodafone had lowered the Nexus S to $0 upfront on their $65 Infinite Plan, now it’s $0 upfront on their $45 Infinite Plan and $0 upfront on their $29 Vodafone Cap. Now that this phone can’t get any cheaper, it’s a good option for people wanting the plain Android experience on a fairly good device. If you’ve not read our review, please check it out as this phone isn’t for everyone. With the Nexus S no longer sitting in the premium cap pricing, I wonder what will take[Read More...]
This is what we like to hear, updates and lots of them and they’re coming… soonish. Vodafone announced via their Blog that they’re currently in possession of the Android 2.3 updates for the Samsung Galaxy S, Samsung Galaxy Tab, HTC Desire Z and HTC Desire HD. Now let’s not get ahead of ourselves, as Voda is only testing the updates to make sure they don’t melt devices or start thermonuclear wars (CM fans will get that reference). The updates will begin to roll out in the coming weeks to months, yes months. At least it’s comforting knowing you have an[Read More...]
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...]

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.

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.
