APOLOGIES
I have been over zealous with political comment lately so have now accepted the offer to assemble and write for two blogs on the WatchingUK website. The "Good News" blog is for items where we have benefited from the Brexit referendum vote and the "Bad News" blog is where others have tried to damage our chances of leaving the EU.

Just this very minute ordered my new mobile phone

Amazon are taken advance orders at a price a tad under £500. So, I have just ordered the 16GB one.

The way I look at it, as 4G won't be here, in the UK, until at least 2013, 16GB will be more than enough for the first year. If I need more then, the 64GB Micro SDCard prices will be right down to around £25. And, 80GB will be more than enough.

I saw this on the Internet which lead me to believe that date:
Ofcom has announced that superfast 4G networks could be delayed due to legal and technical issues. The auction of the 4G spectrum, which decides how the newly available bandwidth is to be divvied up, was set for the first half of 2012 but looks likely to be pushed back.
We are nearly at the end of the first half of 2012, and absolutely no news of the 4G auctions. So this is looking likely.

Anyway here are the full specs of the phone:
