One of the more impressive wearable devices that was announced at MWC 2015 was the Huawei Watch, the company’s entry into the smartwatch market.

The Huawei UK Twitter account revealed today that the device is expected “around the middle of this year.”
Today being April 10th, it’s fair to say that Samsung’s vast marketing department will be working overtime to keep the launch of the Galaxy S6 front and center in the media.

The UK retailer has attached the dual-edged Galaxy S6 to a special balloon and launched it up to the edge of space in a competition to give away 2 handsets via Twitter.

The HTC One M9 was announced a few weeks ago on March the 1st, and since then it’s been polarizing opinions.

If you are in the UK, you can now order the HTC One M9 directly from the HTC website.
BT is one of the UK’s biggest broadband companies, but they left the consumer wireless market several years back. Today, they’ve announced they’ll be jumping back into the market with a very aggressive £5 plan for current broadband customers.
It appears that the choice of mobile network providers in the UK will shrink yet again after confirmation that the owner of Three, the Hong kong based Hutchison Whampoa, has agreed terms to buy O2 from Spain’s Telefónica for £10.25 billion.
