Orange promise microSIM adapter for iPhone 4 customers [Update: O2 too]

It should come as no great surprise - and you could probably make one yourself using a scrap of plastic - but Orange UK has confirmed that, with each iPhone 4 microSIM they supply, they'll also be throwing in an adapter that converts it to the more commonly used miniSIM size.  The adapter basically means that you can take your iPhone 4 microSIM and use it in another, SIM-unlocked handset, handy if you're headed out to somewhere you wouldn't want to risk your new Apple toy.

Orange iPhone 4 pricing revealed: 750MB “fair use” data cap

Orange has become the latest UK carrier to reveal its iPhone 4 pricing, ahead of the smartphone's debut on June 24th.  Monthly plans start from £30 ($44) on a 24-month agreement or £35 ($52) on an 18-month agreement, with the iPhone 4 16GB itself being £169 ($250) on the former or £229 ($339) on the latter.  While Orange still bill their data package as "unlimited", it actually comes with a fair-use policy limiting it to just 750MB per month.

Orange UK next to scrap unlimited data; Vodafone to follow?

Orange UK next to scrap unlimited data; Vodafone to follow?

UK carrier Orange is the next to follow O2 and AT&T, axing unlimited data packages from their contract range from July 2010.  The move follows Orange exec Guillaume van Gaver's comments back in March that "unlimited data packages are not ultimately sustainable. Fair usage policies will be applied, because everyone has to recognise the challenge of carrying video."  Meanwhile Vodafone are apparently expected to withdraw their own unlimited data offerings this coming summer.

Motorola FLIPOUT hands-on [Video]

Motorola FLIPOUT hands-on [Video]

It wasn't just the Motorola XT720 we grabbed some playtime with this morning; we also caught some hands-on time with the company's diminutive FLIPOUT, announced last week.  In some ways the FLIPOUT is more of a surprise than the XT720 proved to be, mainly because it's actually very usable despite the palm-sized dimensions.  The QWERTY keyboard is reasonable to type on, and the rotating screen section may be the spiritual successor to the Sidekick's spring-loaded display when it comes to absent-mindedly fiddling with your phone.

Everything Everywhere created from T-Mobile and Orange merger: new “super-network” promised

Having seen their merger approved, UK carriers Orange and T-Mobile have announced their plans for a "single super-network" under the joint venture name "Everything Everywhere".  The two carriers will continue to operate as ostensibly separate businesses, at least when public facing, each with their own stores and promotions; however, later this year subscribers will be able to use each of the company's wireless networks interchangeably and without fees.

The Daily Slash: April 13th 2010

Tuesday is one of the days that, the moment it starts, you're wondering how fast it's going to end.

That's one of the reason we're so happy to bring you the Daily Slash, where we can let you wind down with the day's ending topics, so you can feel rejuvenated for your hump day challenges.
