Well now that the hype of the new iPhone 5 is gone we can settle down and get down to the real deal. What will I make of the new Windows Phone 8 phones!
What a mistake to make’a. Oi vay, what the f**k is all I can say. A rather hurried show in early September which failed to show all the new features of Windows Phone 8 (WP8). Then no pricing or release date. Why bother? Nokia quickly going down the tubes.
The new handsets look really interesting. I like the way phone manufacturers are making stylish and colourful handsets for the best smartphone platform currently. Is this Nokia’s influence here? perhaps.
Samsung shouted a collective ‘Ouch’ at it’s courtroom patent loss. While I could talk about how ridiculous patents in the tech space have become, I won’t. This ain’t the place. They have come out with quite a nice handset. This is probably a safe-home for Samsung should the Android OS collapse under the weight of patent lawsuits. They’ve come out with a capable, though boring handset here.
I really do like the HTC and Nokia handsets. So far, HTC has come out with firm pricing for the UK market. Nokia have yet to reveal any info in the UK but have released details in other Euro countries. Typically UK prices are higher that the prices in the Euro zone. Which means we’ll get ripped off. Nothing that a quick trip across the channel won’t fix.
