Today Sony announced their new line of Xperia phone that are built for durability. The Xperia Go is Sony’s new handset designed to take life’s bumps and scratches but also give you reasonably performance. The Go phones have a 3.5-inch 480×320 display made from scratch resistant glass that meets International Protection ratings, 1GHz dual-core processor, 5-megapixel camera that can go from sleep to taking a picture in just over one second and the phone has the highest level of dust and water resistance in a smartphone. Like way too many phones launching this year the Xperia Go will come running Gingerbread, but it will be updated to Ice Cream Sandwich. Availability for the Go in the U.K will start in Q3 2012.
Olympic fever is starting to grip the host nation, as well as the whole World. Samsung are the official sponsors of the 2012 games and what better way to start the games then releasing an Olympic Edition phone. The phone that’s getting the Olympic treatment is the Galaxy Note which will feature an Union Jack back cover and Team GB packaging. This edition of the Note will be sold exclusively on O2 in the U.K and will likely launch close to the start of the Olympic Games.
Update: Now on sale from the O2 online store

Verizon may be adding another colour option to their already well established Droid RAZR lineup. A blue Motorola Droid RAZR seems to be heading to Verizon to join the black, white and purple ones. If Verizon do decide to release this, we’re hearing May 18th is the anticipated release date.

We heard about this phone last month at CES but the name was all we had to go on, now T-Mobile has lifted the lid on the features and availability of the phone. The Galaxy S Blaze 4G will be arriving in late March for $150 with a two year agreement, specs wise it has a 4 inch Super AMOLED display, 1.5 GHz dual-core Snapdragon CPU, 5 megapixel camera with support for 720p video recording, 1.3 megapixel camera on the front and HSPA+ support up to 42 Mbps. The phone will ship with Android 2.3 but T-Mobile say it will be updated to Ice Cream Sandwich at some point.
O2 and Orange UK are now stocking Samsung’s mega phone/miniature tablet (depending on how you look at it) the Galaxy Note. Both networks are selling the device without the usually premium attached to high-end devices like this which is perfect for people who do not want to pay full price but in exchange for the low prices you will have to sign a 18 or 24 month contract. O2 will give you a Galaxy Note for free if your willing to pay £63 every month for 2 years and for that you get unlimited calls and text message but a not so generous 500MB of data, so you’ll probably want to pay an extra £4 for 1GB of data bringing your bill to £67 a month. If that sounds like too much money Orange will offer the Galaxy Note with 1200 cross network minutes, unlimited text messages and 1GB of data for £46 on a 24 month contract.
