The new handset has a stainless steel body, a toughened glass screen and is water resistant. It runs Android v4.4 on a Qualcomm Snapdragon processor, supports 4G and is equipped with up to 128GB of memory.
UK-based Nomad Digital, which specialises in providing WiFi services on buses and trains, has acquired the technology and support operations of Danish business CM Technology.
CMT, which is based in Copenhagen, provides passenger information systems on public transport and in transport hubs.
Video-on-demand service provider Voddler has announced the world’s first movie streaming service for smartphones using Dolby Digital Plus audio. It’s currently available for a number of Nokia Symbian devices and is initially being offered in Sweden, Norway, Denmark and Finland.
Dolby Digital Plus audio offers cinematic surround sound with Voddler’s streamed films.
Mobile payment company iZettle, which launched its plug-in ‘chip card’ reader and associated mobile payment app in Sweden last year, has now launched a beta version of its service in Denmark, Finland and Norway.
The first 5,000 chip-card readers in each country will be available free of charge.

If there’s one theme that dominates the last seven days – and, let’s face it, I like to find a theme wherever possible – it’s new mobile devices.
We started the week with Apple having sold over four million units of the new iPhone 4S in the first three days since its launch. This was followed by Motorola Mobility reinvigorating its RAZR brand by applying it to a high-spec Android smartphone – which in turn was followed by Google and Samsung revealing the Galaxy Nexus.
