O2 and Vodafone iPad 3G data plans detailed

Orange UK jumped the gun on Friday and announced their iPad WiFi + 3G data plans - in fact their pre-registration page went live today - but details from rival carriers O2 and Vodafone have only been confirmed this morning.  Apple's preorder page for the iPad WiFi + 3G confirms that O2's daily plan is better value than Orange's (£2 for 500MB, versus £2 for 200MB) while Vodafone are concentrating solely on monthly packages.  Full details after the cut.

O2 Dell Mini 5 launch tipped by Dell/Telefonica alliance?

O2 Dell Mini 5 launch tipped by Dell/Telefonica alliance?

With a headline like "Dell and Telefonica form strategic alliance", we'd forgive you for skipping past this latest press release and onto shinier things.  Still, we've a feeling it's potentially hinting at far more exciting news: an imminent Dell Mini 5 launch on O2 in Europe, perhaps?

Palm Pre Plus & Pixi Plus O2 Germany launch on April 28th

Having been spotted last month tiptoeing through the GCF in GSM form, the Palm Pre Plus and Pixi Plus have been confirmed for launch on O2 Germany.  Announced with a tweet from the carrier's account, the two webOS smartphones will apparently go up for sale on April 28th.  While there's no word from O2's other European arms, the assumption is that the two handsets will see similar launches in Spain, Ireland and the UK.

O2 Joggler home media tablet price slashed

O2 Joggler home media tablet price slashed

We weren't entirely convinced by the O2 Joggler - a 7-inch touchscreen home tablet intended to pull together a family's calendar together with offering internet radio and other functionality - when it launched for £149.99 ($228), and even after a price cut to £99.99($152) it still seemed on the expensive side.  Now, though, O2 have slashed the price in half, which means you can pick up the hackable slate for £49.99 ($76).

O2 UK getting Palm Pre Plus & Pixi Plus in April 2010?

O2 UK getting Palm Pre Plus & Pixi Plus in April 2010?

Could Palm's attempt to reinvigorate their dreary financial performance include adding the Pre Plus and Pixi Plus to their O2 line-up?  That's the rumor over at Tracy & Matt, who have received an anonymous tip claiming that the two devices will arrive in April 2010.  O2 have already been offering the GSM version of the Palm Pre for some months now, but so far the Pixi - which has a smaller display and candybar form-factor - is yet to make an appearance outside of the US.

O2 HTC Smart hands-on [Video]

HTC's second launch event of MWC 2010 may have been a little more subdued than the Desire/Legend/HD mini announcement, but the phone it detailed may reach a whole lot more users than that trio.  Along with carrier O2, the company have announced availability of the  HTC Smart, an entry-level device running Qualcomm's Brew MP OS on a 300MHz processor.  Check out our hands-on video demo after the cut.

Only 220 Palm Pre sold in Ireland since launch?

Back when we reviewed the O2 Palm Pre in October 2009, we pondered whether the sheer length of time between its announcement the preceding January and its launch nine months later would leave buyers cold.  Unfortunately it sounds like that might have been the case: Mobile Industry Review have heard from an unnamed "heavyweight industry source" that O2 Ireland have sold a mere 220 Pre handsets, and that sales have been "equally successful" in the UK.

Dell Mini 3 and Google Nexus One UK launch plans unfold

Dell Mini 3 and Google Nexus One UK launch plans unfold

CES 2010's US-focus means we generally have to wait a little longer to hear about when some of the more appealing gadgets may make their way to foreign shores, but a couple of the headline-grabbing Android smartphones have already been promised to the UK.  Dell confirmed with Electricpig that the Dell Mini 3 would be, perhaps unsurprisingly, headed to the UK, together with the tease that the handset was apparently "built specifically with the UK in mind", while Total Telecom have heard from UK carriers T-Mobile and 3 that they're currently negotiating with Google over the Nexus One.

O2 to spend hundreds of millions of pounds to fix network

The iPhone is one of the best smartphones around and has the most prolific users of the internet of any smartphone. If you listen to AT&T, the iPhone user is the reason that its network is so shoddy and over taxed in many areas.

HTC HD2 hits O2 from free

UK carrier O2 has announced that, as of today, would-be owners of the HTC HD2 will be able to drop into their nearest O2 store and pick up the Snapdragon-based Windows Phone.  The launch follows rival carrier Vodafone, who released the HD2 last Thursday.  The HD2 is available from free on certain monthly contracts, though you should probably expect to be tied down for at least 18 months.

Ah, the HTC HD2.  We liked it, Michael Gartenberg liked it - it's love all round for this 4.3-inch hybrid smartphone/MID crossover device.  While we're sure you were happy enough to hear us tell you how great it is, our UK readers (and well-heeled, impulsive US people) can now try it out for themselves as Vodafone have begun selling the HD2.  Best news?  It's available free on contract.

Motorola MILESTONE gets O2 Germany listing for €550

While the US goes DROID crazy after Friday's launch of the Android 2.0 smartphone, O2 Germany are not far behind when it comes to the GSM version.  The Motorola MILESTONE - as the DROID will be known outside the US - was spotted on the carrier's site last week and officially announced on Monday; it's now being listed on the O2 Germany site, priced at €549.99 ($816).
