Russian blogger/journalist Eldar Murtazin, who writes for Mobile-Review.com, is in big trouble with Nokia. According to Nokia, he's admitted to having their prototypes – devices that he shouldn't be in possession of - but hasn't returned them. As a result, Nokia says it's now asked the Russian authorities for help.
Three UK is introducing a new tariff that's intended to "challenge and change mobile phone pricing in the UK", according to the network. It's called The One Plan and includes a monthly allowance of two thousand 'any network' minutes, five thousand Three-to-Three minutes, five thousand text messages and 1GB of data for £25 a month as a SIM-only price plan.
Kevin Russell, Three's Chief Executive, said "For individual consumers this plan is about peace of mind. For the industry it's a game changer. The One Plan is for everyone that wants to get the most from their smartphone and yet keep within their monthly allowance."
