The Internet really is becoming more mobile by the month. Microsoft recently unveiled its very own tablet device the Surface. This cool and powerful device will have a choice of two key accessories, the touch and the type keyboards. The type keyboard is just a slimmed down version of a standard laptop keyboard, but the high-tech touch keyboard has micro pressure senses that can tell when you are touching a letter. It will attach via magnets to the tablet. Very cool.
Tablets are taking mobile internet in a new direction, but recent advancements in smartphones are doing their bit too. The new Sony Experia U has a large touch screen, Wifi, 3G, GPS, Bluetooth and a rather decent five megapixel camera. The phone is priced at £200 sim free and with plenty of power and loads of extras it is great value for money.
BlackBerry has a new phone out too. The BlackBerry Curve 9320 is more than just a business phone, although email is where BlackBerry beats the competition. The reason this phone is so appealing however is the £140 price tag and considering it does email, texting, surfing BBM, Wifi and photography, it’s a great sim free bargain purchase.
The fact that technology is improving and prices are falling mean the mobile Internet revolution can really pick up pace. Along with the rolling out of 4G, the next generation in high speed Internet, the future looks like it’ll be even more mobile and a lot faster.
In keeping with these low priced handsets and tablet devices are sim free tariffs. giffgaff offers a free sim card that’s packed full of goodies. It has goodybags that include 400 UK minutes, unlimited UK texts, unlimited Internet and free giffgaff calls and texts for just £15 per month. You can cancel this at any time too, not that you’d want to.
Free sim cards aren’t anything new; most mobile networks now have free pay as you go sims, but the difference with giffgaff is all the extras that are included. Its sim only tariffs work like a contract but without the weight of being tied down for months on end. Now that really is mobile.
