by Julie ~ November 24th, 2015

Apple Pay has added two more UK banks to its roster after Tesco Bank and TSB became the latest to support the mobile payments service.

The announcement comes five months after Apple Pay touched down in the UK market after its success across the pond saw the US tech giant sign up one million users in its first month.

The UK launch of the contactless payment service saw retailers and financial institutions back the feature, with heavyweights Visa and MasterCard predicting Apple will bring mobile payments into the mainstream.

Barclaycard unveils ‘touch and go’ wearables

Barclaycard has remained a noticeable absence from the line-up of UK banking services that support Apple Pay, choosing instead to team up with Android to launch its own payments offering earlier this year. The brand’s ‘pay by mobile’ service will compete with Apple Pay across more than 300,000 locations.

Samsung Pay launches in Europe with MasterCard partnership

Mobile payments in the UK is set to gain yet another player as Samsung Pay sets its sights on the market after revealing it’s trial launch in South Korea recorded $30m worth of transactions in one month. The manufacturer was previously pipped to the post by Apple Pay in the UK and US markets and, while no launch date has yet been announced, the brand claims that Samsung Pay will be a ‘game changer’

Vodafone One to save Halcrow £1 Million

by Julie ~ September 17th, 2010

Global engineering consultancy claims it will save around £1 million in communication costs over the next five years when it introduces Vodafone One

Halcrow has claimed that its imminent launch of Vodafone One, the operator’s unified communications service, will save the company an estimated £1 million over the next five years in communications costs.

Vodafone One brings fixed, mobile and PC based communications together so employees are contactable via one number on their mobile, fixed phone or PC. Halcrow, which is headquartered in the UK with over 7,000 employees across 80 offices, said this would revolutionise collaborative working for all it’s UK employees.

Halcrow said that Vodafone One’s PC features such as desktop conferencing, instant messaging and presence will integrate with video conferencing facilities to allow it to promote faster and more efficient team working.

Halcrow group IT director Chris Farmer said: “Vodafone One will support our adoption of a global delivery model and fundamentally improve the way we work, which will ultimately help us design and deliver better solutions for our customers. It will enhance our competitive advantage, as well as our agility to be more responsive to customer demands and new business opportunities

O2 UK Apologises for Poor Mobile Broadband Performance in London

by Julie ~ January 2nd, 2010
 
 
o2 logoThe CEO of O2 UK, Ronan Dunne, has apologised for the poor performance of its mobile data network since the summer, especially in London. Dunne admits that the operator’s network was simply unable to cope with the surge in data usage by Mobile Broadband and iPhone users, though improvements are already working their way into the system.

Mr Dunne told the Financial Times:

“Where we haven’t met our own high standards then there’s no question, we apologise to customers for that fact. But it would be wrong to say that O2 has failed its customers en masse.”

 

No mobile operator is immune from capacity problems, with recent Mobile Broadband benchmarks indicating that most have enough trouble achieving a stable average speed of 1Mbps let alone the dizzy heights of 3.6Mbps to 7.2Mbps promoted by some.

O2 plans to solve its problems by imposing better Traffic Management, installing 200 additional base stations in London and working more closely with handset manufacturers to help keep usage down. Future LTE technology will also help, but ultimately operators will have to find cash and invest in more capacity.

Sony Ericsson Jalou

by Julie ~ August 15th, 2009

The Sony Ericsson Jalou is a very distinctive looking and lightweight fashion phone

due to hit the shops in time for Christmas.

sony-ericsson-jalou-combo

Sony Ericsson describe the Jalou’s shape as a “facet cut jewel form” and although the look is reminiscent of the Nokia 7070 Prism, the Jalou is a much more sophisticated handset.

The “Jalou” and “BeJoo” are two different names for the same device – the phone will be called the “Jalou” worldwide except for France where the “BeJoo” name will be used. The reason? Well, according to Sony Ericsson the “Jalou” name is too close to the French word for “Jealous”, which goes to show that giving products a name rather than a number can be fraught with danger*.

In addition to the standard version of the Jalou, there is also a Dolce & Gabbana variant with gold plating, a rose colouring and exclusive D&G content. Alternatively the standard (and presumably cheaper) Jalou comes in “Deep Amethyst”, “Aquamarine Blue” and “Onyx Black” colour combinations.

sony-ericsson-jalou-open

The diamond shape is not the only thing that gives the Jalou a distinctive look – it’s also a lot less tall than most clamshell phones, measuring just 73 x 45 x 18mm when closed. Sony Ericsson have gone for this unusual size to make the phone as compact as possible, so it should fit it into the tiniest bag or jacket pocket. The Jalou is also very lightweight, coming in at just 84 grams.

So, what does the Jalou actually do from a technical perspective? Well, it’s a fairly standard 3G phone with a 2″ 240 x 320 pixel display, a 3.2 megapixel camera, microSD expandable memory, stereo Bluetooth and a multimedia player. There’s a semi-concealed external display underneath the glossy casing, and you can also use the Jalou as a mirror to check just how gorgeous you are looking.

sony-ericsson-jalou-dolce-gabbana

In Europe, the Jalou will support 2100 MHz UMTS plus HSDPA downloads, there will also be a US version which supports 900 and 1700 MHz UMTS and has the very useful addition of built-in GPS. We don’t know why there’s no GPS in the European version.. that would have been a pretty cool thing to have in a fashion phone. But, in other words.. the Jalou’s beauty is not just skin deep.

It’s an unashamedly girlie phone – some of the applications on the Jalou include a step counter, zodiac application and of course all the usual features such as a web browser and email client, plus a media player and FM radio. The display might be a little small for web browsing, but the inclusion of 3.5G data does at least mean that it will be quite fast.

There’s no word on pricing, our best guess is that the standard Jalou will retail for about €400 SIM-free. Sony Ericsson say that both the standard and the D&G version should be available during Q4 2009.

Tesco and Asda go head to head on termination rates

by Julie ~ August 15th, 2009

Tesco Mobile echoes O2’s position, while Asda is for lowering the charges

Two of the UK’s biggest supermarkets have taken opposing positions on the reduction of termination rates.

Tesco has warned Ofcom that lowering charges would mean price hikes for customers, while Asda is supporting lowering the charge, saying it encourages a ‘level playing field’ between operators.

Tesco Mobile, which runs off the O2 network and is jointly owned by the O2 and Teco in a 50/50 split, has echoed O2’s position in which the operator claimed that lowering termination rates would mean increases for customers.

The predominantly prepay provider warned Ofcom that lowering termination rates would mean a price hike on call tariffs and that the effects of raising prices would have particular effect on prepay customers. Tesco said: ‘Ofcom should consider carefully the impacts on customer segment rather than this spurious impact on new entrants.’

Meanwhile, Asda claimed that a reduction would result in lower prices for customers and a more level playing field for operators.

Asda supported the lowering of termination rates despite having a wholesale agreement with Vodafone, a network which is also staunchly against lowering termination rates.

A number of companies made submissions to Ofcom from the end of July as part of a consultation taking place on termination rates.

Tesco Mobile said: ‘Tesco Mobile believes that reducing mobile call termination charges below long run incremental costs will have a significant impact on the structure of the UK mobile market and in particular on certain groups of customers. Changing where common costs may be recovered will have implications for pricing structures.’

Asda said: ‘Deregulation would present a level playing field for all Mobile Network Operator (MNO) and Mobile Virtual Network Operators (MVNOs). It would reduce both MNO and MVNO costs and create greater competition in the market place. Low cost providers will then be able to offer low price products to the customer.’
