Japanese technology company NEC Corporation says it has stopped developing, making and selling smartphones via its NEC CASIO Mobile Communications business.
The smartphone business is controlled by NEC, with Casio and Hitachi each owning a minority share.
The UK government has confirmed the parts of England, Scotland, Wales and Northern Ireland that’ll benefit from its £150 million Mobile Infrastructure Project.
Cornwall, Northumberland, Strabane, Aberdeenshire and Powys are among the areas that will be targeted by the project.
O2 says it’ll be switching on its ‘superfast’ 4G network in London, Leeds and Bradford on 29th August. It’ll then add a further 10 cities by the end of 2013.
The company’s 4G tariffs will cost from £26 per month.
