The UK is finally starting to catch up with the rest of the world with the announcement of it’s first 4G LTE network from EE, the parent company of T‑Mobile and Orange. The timing of which seems more than a little coincidental with a certain Apple event happening tomorrow.
Ryan Heise has been using Android over his iPhone for the last month or so. His conclusion:
Google wants to reinvent the wheel that Apple created with iOS, but it’s a wheel that they’re better off to copy all the way, rather than make a facsimile and take out a few big chunks.
There’s a few interesting points in this article that seem to confirm one thing. Apple thinks about how to make something and polish the crap out of it. Google thinks about how to make something quickly and then move on to the next thing.

Interesting video about the latest release of Windows Phone 7, aka Mango. I’m quite intrigued by the interface of Windows Phone and some of the integration with messaging networks seems interesting, although I’m skeptical how it might work in real life.
I’m actually pleased to see Microsoft stepping up a little with some new ideas and interfaces. Competition is good, I just hope that this and WebOS can gain a little traction in the next few months.
Interesting interview with Hewlett Packards CEO Leo Apotheker which includes this little nugget.
“HP will stop making announcements for stuff it doesn’t have. When HP makes announcements, it will be getting ready to ship,” he promises, saying the products launched on 9 February will be on sale just a few weeks later.
So how come everything launched today isn’t available til the summer?
