Vodafone has announced Vodafone 360, an online aggregator that puts all your friends, web communities, entertainment and personal favourites together on your phone or PC. For example, it combines contacts from compatible mobile phones with friends on Facebook, Windows Live Messenger and Google Talk to create a single address book called Vodafone People.
There’s also going to be an app store called the Vodafone Shop.
Orange says the world's first touchscreen 'watch phone' will arive in the UK next month – and it's one of several innovative multimedia devices the company will be announcing in the next 18 months.

Hutchison Whampoa company INQ Mobile has released UK usage data from the INQ1 handset, which has become known as the Facebook phone.

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.
