This weeks top news.

Apple sent to officially show off and release the Ipad 2 on the 2nd of march, front facing camera and better screen are just 2 of the many rumors.

Apple still planning to release smaller cheaper Iphone, analyst Toni Sacconaghi from Bernstein Research last week, Cook was happy to discuss Apple’s future plans. Cook said he didn’t want Apple to be seen as, “…just for the rich,” saying it, “…understood price is big factor in the prepaid market” and that it was, “…not ceding any market.”

Motorola is going to be releasing the Xoom soon and has already started to take pre-orders costing £450, but at thge moment pre-orders are only set for the WiFi only model, they are trying to generate more sales before the release of the Ipad 2 on the 2nd of March, the Xoom is also the first android tablet to come pre-installed with the new honeycomb operating system.

Sony bragging about releasing a 17.7 mega pixel camera phone, most companies stick to 5 – 8 mega pixel but Sony have said yet again that they are planning to beat every one with a better camera, although at the moment I do not believe its actually going to happen as last year they released news of a 16 mega pixel phone and it never happened.

Vodafone’s mobile network was down recently as their mobile exchange in basingstoke was broken into this week, the reason is that during the break in the suspects decided to damage a large amount of their equipment, this means that customers phone and date network will be losing connection at random times, although a representative from their technical services dose say they are working as fast as they can to correct the problem and repair the equipment.
