Hutchison Whampoa company INQ Mobile has released UK usage data from the INQ1 handset, which has become known as the Facebook phone.
Apparently 65% of INQ1 customers are now using Facebook, with most of them going online at least daily.
Hyundai Mobile says its MB-910 watch phone (or 'phone watch', if you prefer) will be available in the UK by the summer - and it's likely to sell for £200 SIM-free. That's considerably less than the similarly-named LG G910 watch phone, which is expected to have a £1000 price tag when it turns up towards the end of the year. The touch-screen tri-band MB-910 weighs 58g and can manage up to 3 hours of talk time or 70 hours on standby.
Following the EC's recent warning, the GSMA has just announced a commitment to getting the MicroUSB connector implemented as the universal charging standard for mobile phones.
They’re aiming to have everything in place by 2012.
