Tesco has announced that the sales of mobile phones are expected to reach a fever pitch this coming holiday season. While there are plenty of people that will be shopping straight from retail stores, a vast majority of the sales will be coming from the internet: online shopping is fast becoming the new option for busy people –about 78% of total sales is expected to come directly through online buyers.

A new Tegra 2 Powered smart phone from LG is expected to appear at the upcoming Mobile World Congress: the LG Star. Aside from the fact that this is a full touch screen smart phone using the Android 2.2 OS with an HDMI output port, little else has been revealed about this new device from the Korean phone maker.

Gresso has announced that they are launching a new luxury smart phone: the Luxor. While this expensive device screams nothing but style and class, buyers should be reminded that the use of 200 year old African Blackwood on a phone that will probably not be used for more than a couple of years is definitely not encouraged.

Orange and T-Mobile UK’s offer for the Apple iPad is impressive and hard to match. Everything Everywhere currently offers one of the best deals for the touch screen tablet –a feature that is only matched by 3 UK, which currently holds the post for having the best options for Apple iPhone 4 and iPad buyers.

Sony Ericsson has confirmed that the XPERIA X8 will finally be getting an update to the Android 2.1 Éclair. Not quite the impressive Flash 10.1 capable Froyo update that we have been waiting for, but this is still a great bit of news for this 1.6 Donut handset.

Images of what appears to be the Nokia N00 has been spotted online, plenty of speculations about this supposedly MeeGo OS powered device has sprouted up. With the N9 nowhere in sight, we doubt that the N00 will be coming out anytime soon.
