  • The Things in Our Lives that Mobiles Have Completely Changed

    by zerodudex333 on Apr 21, 2014 8:00:00 AM



    I think it’s fair to say that over the last century, we as a race have overcome more technological advancements than the rest of the entirety of our existence, and especially in the last few decades, we have undergone so many changes that have completely changed the way we live our lives.


    One of the biggest technological changes to happen that has affected our personal lives in a big way is mobile technology. I’m talking about smartphones, tablets, laptops, smart watches and anything else that has branched off from personal computers into the territory of portability and ease of access. It’s here that our personal and business lives have completely been restructured. We are still continuing to adapt to the changes mobile technology has brought to our lives, and clever minds are putting their heads together every second to think of new ways to take advantage of this technology.


    Today I’d like to take a look at some of the biggest things that mobile technology has changed in our lives, and how it has made such a big impact on our day-to-day lives.

Largely thanks to your input and help, we’re on the home straight and are nearly ready to start exploring the world of 4G with you; we are currently on track to launch in early April. Before going any further, let’s start with a big thank-you to everyone who gave feedback on the 4G landing page and the 4,600 of you who responded to the 4G survey.



Recently marktiddy and myself returned from Barcelona where we spent a couple days exploring Mobile World Congress. We saw some amazing tech and ideas while we were there and fortunately for us all, Mark captured lots of video footage. So check out his video blog of the event and his impressions on the latest phones, smart watches, Samsungs's Unpacked 5 event and much more.

Say hello to the new Xperia Z1 Compact and to our new handset prices

It's been more than two months since we launched our range of 20 devices – it’s been quite a journey but we knew that it was just the beginning. The world of handsets changes everyday and we are always looking into offering you the best offer in the market. We've spent many hours in meetings, making calls and looking at formulas to remain competitive in the market space. It is not always easy but we believe we have taken a massive step forward.
