Three UK to launch the Huawei E586 MiFi

Readers of this blog will be well aware that I am a huge fan of Three UK's MiFi range. MiFi is a series of portable wireless router that you can use to connect multiple devices via a single data connection.

The MiFi is an effective and economical way of accessing the internet if you, like me, own multiple gadgets - including portable gaming consoles, tablets and smartphones. I have been using the current Three MiFi v2 (Huawei E585) for some time now and have never left home without one.

SGP Steinhill Glas for Samsung Galaxy S2 review

You may never have heard of SGP but they are a US-based company who designs and makes accessories for smartphones and other consumer electronic products. I was recently sent a SGP Steinhill Glas screen protector for the Samsung Galaxy S II to review. This a 0.4mm glass screen protector with oleophobic coating that prevents oil and fingerprints and is available in white, black or pink.

My review of the SGP Glas is available on FoneArena.

Fake Nokia Windows Phone 7 video

There is a video spreading via twitter that people are passing off as a sneak peak to Nokia Windows Phone 7 plans. It's well made but it is also a fake. I know this because I recognise the last segment showing off a dual screen phone as a concept shown by Microsoft two years ago. A quick search on the web confirms it. The front segment was also lifted from the montage shown at Nokia World 2010! Have a look below and judge for yourself.

Fake video:

Moral of the story? Do some research before passing on obvious fake stories.

UberMusic for Android review

UberMusic is a third party replacement music player for Android platform. It is developed by Federico Carnales, the man behind the popular LauncherPro replacement home launcher for Android. The default skin is inspired by the Windows Phone 7 Zune music player clone (with very subtle differences), and that doesn't mean it is a bad thing. Considering that people are willing to pay for something like this is a proof that Microsoft has nailed down the UX for WP7 and, more importantly, the default Android music player is just that bad.
