Vodafone will be launching a ‘mass market’ smartphone this summer. The Smart II - an update from last year’s Vodafone 858 Smart - has been launched in the UK at £70 on ‘pay as you go’ before being rolled out to other European countries at under €99.
It’s described as having twice the processing power of the most expensive and sought-after smartphones available three years ago.
London Underground and Virgin Media have named a list of 82 London Underground stations that will offer free WiFi this summer. Oxford Circus, Stratford, Liverpool Street, Leicester Square and King’s Cross will be among the first to launch.
Virgin Media’s WiFi service will be free throughout the summer, with charges introduced at a later date.
