Three pushes true unlimited data on refreshed The One Plan

UK carrier Three has stepped up to shake the mobile industry out of its data complacency, dropping the 1GB cap on its The One Plan tariff and instead offering truly unlimited data. The plan - which is priced at £25 ($39) per month - offers 2,000 any-network minutes, 5,000 Three-to-Three minutes and 5,000 texts, but of most interest to data-hungry smartphone users will be the absence of "fair use" restrictions.

Three UK turn on free Facebook Zero access

Facebook's 0.facebook.com mobile site - which promises free access with certain carriers - launched with the promise of broader availability further down the line, and some of that has finally come true.  UK carrier Three has announced that its users can now avoid any mobile data charges when surfing the Facebook Zero site, though as before it's a pretty disappointing experience even when compared to the regular mobile Facebook page.

INQ Facebook phone: Spotify bundle & cloud sync?

INQ Facebook phone: Spotify bundle & cloud sync?

We guessed the latest batch of Facebook phone rumors from this morning wouldn't be the last we'd hear about the supposed INQ mobile/Facebook collaboration, and on cue a new set of tidbits have arrived.  GigaOm have been piecing together their own sources and have fleshed things out a little: they say Bloomberg's H1 2011 timescale is over-confident but that the first network to see the Facebook phone will be Hutchinson's 3, likely with a Spotify bundle in tow.  While they reiterate that the vaunted AT&T deal hasn't been finalized yet, they also say that, if Spotify manage their predicted December US launch, access could also be bundled on the AT&T version of the smartphone(s).

They also go on to mix in some speculation about the hardware itself, though it's tricky to work out exactly where the leaks end and the wishful-thinking begins.  A stripped-down "thin" Android build is the underlying OS, with Facebook an HTML5 layer on top; your Facebook login details trigger an auto-sync, pulling in contacts, calendar and multimedia.

Three unveil iPhone 4 plans: no handsets yet but cheap tariffs

UK carrier Three has left it until the last minute to announced their iPhone 4 plans, though since the handset isn't actually available from them direct as yet, we'll give them a pass card.  As of tomorrow you can take your unlocked iPhone 4 bought direct from Apple and slot in a Three microSIM, picking from their £15 per month plan with 1GB of data and no minimum contract, or their £25 plan with a 12 month contract but more inclusive minutes.  Full details after the cut.

Three Huawei E585 MiFi-style 3G router packs OLED display

We're big fans of portable 3G hotspots here at SlashGear, and Huawei's new E585 follows in the footprints of the Sprint Overdrive by adding a compact display to the pocket-sized WiFi router.  Headed to UK network Three in early July 2010, the E585 can share a 3G connection with up to five WiFi clients - such as your iPad, for instance - with the monochrome OLED display showing network and battery status together with how much mobile data has been used.
