Orange iPhone 3GS data limitations looking draconian

Orange iPhone 3GS data limitations looking draconian

Color us confused again.  While Orange claimed that in offering the iPhone 3GS in the UK in opposition to hitherto-exclusive rival O2 they'd "increase value" to buyers, some bizarre limitations in the terms & conditions have us wondering whether life really was better with O2.  As we pointed out earlier this week, Orange define "unlimited data" as 750MB; however there's also a potentially more limiting cap on what streaming and IM services - such as internet radio and Facebook messaging - can be used.

Motorola MILESTONE (aka GSM Verizon DROID) confirmed for O2 Germany

We're still playing avidly with our Verizon DROID by Motorola in preparation for the full review this coming week - check out some first-impressions and highlights in the meantime - but according to a leaked O2 Germany document the GSM European version may only be days away.  The document lists the Motorola MILESTONE - with a shot of what's definitely the Motorola DROID - as coming to the German carrier in the week beginning November 9th 2009; in fact there's already a page for the MILESTONE on the O2 Germany site.

HTC HD2 hits O2 UK in week starting October 19th

According to carrier O2, the HTC HD2 will be launching in the UK from the week beginning October 19th, putting the flagship Windows Phone potentially less then 10 days away from capacious pockets.  We're yet to hear anything official from O2 or HTC themselves - the latter only told reporters that the HD2 would drop in October when they launched the Windows Mobile 6.5 device earlier this week - but customer services for the carrier have apparently been telling callers about the October 19th date.

O2 Palm Pre GSM review

O2 Palm Pre GSM review

For European consumers, the Palm Pre has been a long time coming. Announced - in CDMA form - back in January 2009, with Palm coyly dancing around the matter of a GSM version until its Sprint launch took place in June, the smartphone has even gained a sibling (in the shape of the Palm Pixi) before those across the Atlantic have had a chance to play with the original. That's all finally changing this month, with carrier O2 exclusively offering the Pre in the UK and Ireland from October 16th and Germany from October 13th. Has time dulled the Pre's appeal? SlashGear have been testing out the GSM Palm Pre; check out our full review after the cut.
