New iPhone 5 cases appear in UK with 4-inch display

Those of you looking for more clues as to what the new iPhone will look like when it's revealed later this year will be glad to see another set of cases full of clues popping up today. What we're seeing here, courtesy of Mobile Fun UK's secret sources, is a set of iPhone 5 (or whatever the New iPhone will be called) case images that point toward many of the elements we've been seeing the past few weeks. If these cases are correct, we'll again have the same width device that's taller and has a headphone jack at the bottom rather than the top - and the display will be 4-inches, too.

Ofcom delays UK LTE spectrum auction to “early 2013″

LTE continues to expand throughout the United States and in many countries around the world, but the UK is still waiting on Ofcom to give the go-ahead on the necessary spectrum auction to support the technology. The communications watchdog has this morning announced that the spectrum bidding will be pushed back slightly, from the end of this year to “early 2013.” The delay in the spectrum auction ultimately means consumers will be waiting even longer for LTE to hit the UK.

Science baffled by frankenstein monster mummies

Science baffled by frankenstein monster mummies

Yes, you just read that right, there are indeed mummies being discovered off the coast of Scotland that are made up of the body parts (or at least the bones) of multiple humans, making them the living embodiment of the classic Frankenstein monster. It's not often that one finds a body buried with a jawbone that's taken from a different body than the skull that its attached to, and the scientists that are working with the bodies that've been discovered this past month have certainly never come across cases as strange as these before.

Griffin goes big with their first retail store opening

The folks at Griffin today have just opened up their first retail store in just about the most opportunistic location in the entire universe: right across the street from the London Olympic Stadium.

Samsung Galaxy S III Pebble Blue misses launch in UK

Samsung Galaxy S III Pebble Blue misses launch in UK

Here on the launch day for the Samsung Galaxy S III in the UK we're on the scene confirming that there are literally no Pebble Blue versions (of any size) in stores throughout London and likely throughout the country. This delay was noted by several carriers before today as being a partial stoppering of Pebble Blue versions of the Galaxy S III, but today has been expanded to all versions outside the White. This has resulted in masses of customers coming into stores changing their pre-ordered devices over to the White version of the device so that they might have the smartphone in their hands today rather than waiting for weeks for the Blue version.

Samsung Galaxy S III UK pricing revealed

The Galaxy S III has been revealed this week in London as Samsung's next-level smartphone hero, and the prices are flooding in for UK carriers galore. Starting with Vodafone UK, this carrier gets the device on the 30th of this month (as opposed to the 29th as the rest of Europe will get the device) and will be getting an exclusive on the 32GB model of the device for the first month it's out on the market. While the rest of Europe will be getting the device on the 29th, it seems that the entirety of the UK will have to wait just one more day.
