The HTC One mini 2, a review

HTC-One-mini-2-review-hero

I had the opportunity to put the brand new HTC One mini 2 through its paces and when the phone arrived in the mail and I was surprised at how small the box was. I wondered if it was even the phone.

I couldn’t wait to open it and have a look at the phone – and my colleagues in the office waited with the same anticipation. They say the phone is a mini, but I did not find it to be that small; in fact, it is just a bit smaller than my Samsung Galaxy S4 and about the size of the Nokia Lumia 1020. Holding the phone for the first time, I was impressed with the feel of the phone in my hand. It’s balanced and feels nice to hold. I love the metal back and it gives the phone a real sense of quality.

Like many other Australians, our family is on the brink of being conscripted into the arms race of junior phone ownership.

As parents of three tech-savvy kidlets (even the two-year-old has the tablet mastered), there is no avoiding the necessary smartphone policy development within the Government of Laird. How do we ensure the powerful micro computer – which also happens to be a phone – enhances personal functionality, rather than staging a total coup?

Here are ten things based on experience that you might consider before giving your child a smartphone.

A new addition to the spectrum family that will underpin future speeds and performance

Filed under: ,,,

I am pleased to announce that Telstra is now the proud owner of 2 x 40MHz of 2600MHz spectrum. While this may not mean much to the average customer, it’s actually a significant step in strengthening our mobile network for the future.

More importantly, it is a key enabler of the next generation of LTE-A called Cat 9. This will introduce commercial three band carrier aggregation which can deliver theoretical peak speeds of 450Mbps. Although we have already demonstrated this technology in one of our earlier world first trials, commercial devices which can support these speeds are not expected until next year, but with the release of this spectrum and new 2600MHz sites coming into service from today, we are well on the way to creating the super-charged network of the future.

How digital media is a win-win for businesses and their customers

typing-hero

It’s well understood that the heart of digital signage remains advertising. But to dismiss digital signage as just advertising is to underestimate its potential.

What we are seeing with our digital media clients across several industries, is that this technology can help answer a common question that today’s marketers face.

What do you know about your customers today, and what do you want to know about them tomorrow?
