3 is to sell its MiFi Wi-Fi mobile hotspot gizmo bundled with an iPod touch, to let you Skype your mates wherever you are. Is this the cheapest “iPhone” ever?
A bunch of new iPhone vendors have popped out into the open recently, including Orange, Vodafone, and even Tesco, so Three’s obviously keen to get in on the action. It’s not selling the iPhone, but the next best thing: an iPod touch bundled with MiFi mobile Wi-Fi so you can get online with it wherever there’s 3G and dial your friends over Skype.
Naturally there are some downsides to this mashup: the MiFi needs to be charged, you get no GPS, and it’s only the 8GB iPod touch, not the 64GB. But hey, if you’re planning on getting MiFi anyway (and you should be), think of it as a free iPod touch instead.Read more »
Carphone Warehouse raised its full-year earnings forecast yesterday after an unexpectedly strong 88 per cent rise in half-year profits to £75 million.
Britain’s second-biggest broadband provider attributed the strong performance to a rising number of broadband customers and strong demand for the Apple iPhone and other smart phones.
Excluding its July acquisition of Tiscali, which takes the company’s total of broadband customers to 4.1 million, it added 124,000 new customers in the six months to September 30.
Carphone plans to demerge TalkTalk, the broadband provider, and Best Buy, its retail division, which is 50 per cent owned by Best Buy Electricals, of the US, by March. The company hopes that they will create better value as separate companies.
The company has already signed up a new chief executive for the demerged TalkTalk, according to Charles Dunstone, Carphone chief executive. The new chief executive, who is currently an executive at another company, will be named next year.Read more »
O2 originally had the iPhone 3G as a time exclusive device for quite some time. “Quite” is an understatement for two whole years.
With Orange UK recently releasing the iPhone and Vodafone announcing that they too will be having the device on January of 2010, O2 has just not lost exclusivity, but also price control. Just a week prior to the Orange launch of the iPhone, O2 started coming up with new promotions for the device. Competition can truly be a good thing.
Tesco will be boosting O2’s market share on the iPhone as they too have announced that the Apple iPhone will be available through them as well. Interested buyers may sign up at the pre-registration page at the Tesco website though there are still no details regarding the specific release date.
The official press release from Tesco dated November 25 states that the Tesco will be releasing Apple iPhone products “through its joint venture partnership with O2”. Specific details regarding this are still unavailable, but it is confirmed that all iPhones to be sold by Tesco will be under an O2 pay-as-you-go or monthly tariff plan.Read more »
