  1. Honor today announced the arrival of its latest, and arguably most impressive phone yet: The Honor 8 Pro. It marks the start of a new line of phones from the trendy startup that’s part of Huawei’s ever growing empire. Jonathan Morris of jmcomms.com published the following: Some of you will already be well aware of this phone, as a rebrand of the Honor V9 that went on sale in China earlier this year. It was always pretty likely that it would make an appearance here after a while, and here it is. Think of it is as cross between the current flagship Honor 8, and the Huawei Mate 9 – with some of the software features from the latest Huawei P10. Honor 8 Pro: The phone built for speed Rather than waffle on, let me list the highlights: A 5.7-inch QHD LCD display, designed for immersive VR experiences – and made possible to enjoy straight away because the Honor 8 Pro box itself converts into a Google Cardboard VR headset. A 4,000mAh battery. Take note Samsung! The same Kirin 960 chipset as powering the Huawei Mate 9 and Huawei P10, which has a GPU that offers a staggering 180% performance increase over the Kirin 955 used in last year’s flagship Huawei P9. A 12-megapixel f/2.2 dual-camera, with wide aperture mode, and now offering a standalone monochrome mode like the Leica-branded Huawei models 6GB of RAM, 64GB of internal storage and a memory card slot Available in three colours (blue at launch) £474.95 retail price All of that represents a lot of phone for the money, and alongside the Honor 8, a personal favourite of mine, Honor now has something to suit those who found a 5.2-inch screen too small, but perhaps didn’t want to sacrifice performance and functionality for the cheaper Honor 6X that had a 5.5-inch display. While the Mate 9 and Honor 8 Pro aren’t entirely separated at birth (the Huawei phone having a 5.9-inch screen and a pseudo-stereo sound system in landscape mode), there are still many similarities and, like the Honor 8 vs the Huawei P9, the Honor phone actually offering more functionality in some areas. Take the Mate 9 with a Full-HD display on all but the more expensive Pro models, whereas Quad-HD is standard here. Likewise, 6GB is standard on the Honor, compared to 4GB. What the Mate 9 does offer over the Honor 8 Pro is a 20-megapixel monochrome sensor coupled to a 12-megapixel colour sensor, but the Honor 8 camera is still a great performer to this day and can hold its own to a lot of the competition. Read my full review and check out my photo and video gallery. The Honor 8 Pro supports fast charging (9V/2A), whereas the Huawei models supports even faster ‘super’ charging. The other thing to note is that, for now at least, no UK network will be stocking the phone. The only way to get one is direct from Honor’s online store itself. The Honor 8 Pro can be pre-ordered from today, in platinum gold, midnight black or navy blue. Take my advice and get the blue. It may not have the wonderful shimmering effect on the back, but it’s still the most stylish of the three. To help make up your mind, there’s no need to wait for a review as it’s already here! The Honor 8 Pro should start being delivered to customers around April 20th.

  5. Always on the look out for interesting ideas, we came across US company, Flir, who have been producing thermal imaging sensors for industry for a while now. They're now looking to break into the mobile camera market and think that not only engineers and surveyors might find their innovations useful, but are also in discussion with a number of well know mobile phone companies who are looking to add features onto future mobile phones. Could thermal imaging be on of those? Have a look....http://www.mobileandgadget.com/ What do you think? Click here to view the news

  7. The European Aviation Safety Agency have made two key rulings this week meaning that starting from the end of this month, passengers will be able to continue using their electronic devices during take off and landing, as long as they're in plane mode. Laptops will still have to be stowed away though. On top of that, airlines will soon be able to offer 3G and 4G networks on flights so you'll be able to stay connected during flights. Unfortunately, whether you'll be able to do so or not will all depends on how nice your airline is. So until budget airlines work out how to make money out of it, I won't be benefiting....
  8. There's nothing more frustrating than getting on a plane and being asked to turn off your phone whilst you're reading a really interesting article on Mobile & Gadget, even when you've switched it to 'Plane Mode'.

  10. OFCOM has now acted, and from 23rd January 2014, all new mobile, landline and broadband contracts will have a break clause in them if the operator decides to increase prices, irrespective of the rate of inflation. Service providers will have to give users a minimum of 30 days notice of price changes, and can not reduce the bundle offer either in order to keep the contract price the same. Users will be able to cancel their contracts, and will not have to go through the same arguments as they did recently after T-Mobile got it's facts badly wrong. More information
  11. Up until fairly recently, people used to think that if you signed a mobile contract, then apart from out of bundle calls/data, then that was it for charges, and then the mobile networks started raising the price of those contracts mid-term....OFCOM has now acted, and from 23rd January 2014, all new mobile, landline and broadband contracts will have a break clause in them if the operator decides to increase prices, irrespective of the rate of inflation.
