Mobile Phone News Roundup: iPhone 4S, Galaxy S III, Nokia 800 and More

October 11th, 2011 by Caroline

We said it yesterday, when the iPhone 4S pre-orders hit one million in one day, about what a difference 24-hours make – and we’re tempted to say it again today!

It’s been a veritable whirlwind of mobile phone news in the last day, so we thought we’d bring you a quick roundup of all the leaks, suspicions, happenings and announcements.

iPhone 4S

Seeing as Apple’s latest iPhone launches in three days time (not that we’re counting or anything!) we’ll start with the iPhone 4S.

Reports have been gathering regarding the RAM onboard the smartphone, and now the guys over at MacRumors are pretty convinced by suggstions that the iPhone 4S appears to come with 512MB of RAM.

Previously thought to come with 1GB of RAM, at 512MB of RAM the iPhone 4S would match the current iPhone 4 in the RAM department.

We’ll confirm as soon as we can.

Galaxy S III

We’re still in the land of leaks with this one, after an “anonymous source” sent Phandroid a slide that charts the progress of Samsung’s Galaxy S range.

The slide ends with an image of the next flagship device and a few specs too: dual-core 1.8GHz processor, 4.6 inch Super AMOLED Plus HD display, 12-megapixel camera, 2GB of RAM, and LTE and NFC support.

The Galaxy S III is also thought to boast a slimmer frame than the Galaxy S II and run on Ice Cream Sandwich OS.

Fingers crossed these specs are based on reality!

Nokia 800

Remember the Windows Phone-based device from Nokia, previously referred to as the Nokia Sea Ray?

Well, the Nokia 800 has featured in its first set of adverts (thanks to PocketNow for the snap).

BlackBerry crashes

Those of you who use BlackBerry handsets have no doubt already spotted that the system crashed for most of yesterday. BlackBerry UK announced on Twitter that “some users in EMEA are experiencing issues.”

However, hours after reportedly fixing the issue, the BlackBerry server seems to be down again. BBC News has stated that users have been on Twitter complaining their handsets won’t send messages or emails still.

Virgin connects mobile network with Orange

It’s good news for Virgin customers, after the network announced it’s linked with Orange to provide better coverage in the UK.

The company said: “We already cover 99% of the UK population, and now you can also use your mobile on the Orange network, so you’ll be able to stay in touch here, there and pretty much everywhere.

“Your phone will automatically use the Orange signal, where there isn’t Virgin Media coverage. Best of all, your bill won’t change and you’ll still pay the same great value Virgin Mobile rates.”
