Podcast - 2nd July 2014
In this week's podcast we talk about two of the big announcements from Google I/O: a new version of Android and the retail launch of smartwatches powered by 'Android Wear'.
We also talk about Android-based smartphones from Nokia and Blackphone, network complaints in the UK, a reduction in European roaming charges and mobile ticketing.
Vodafone says it’s sold its 49% shareholding in Vodafone Fiji to the Fiji National Provident Fund for FJ$160 million (£51 million).
However, although FNPF now controls the Fijian network, it’ll maintain a partner agreement with the Vodafone Group.
Maximum mobile data costs falling by over 55%
The cost of using a mobile phone in Europe is falling again for many customers.
The European Union’s Roaming Regulations of May 2012, which cut mobile roaming charges two years ago and again in 2013, have reduced prices for the third (and final) time.
