    Acer Iconia A510 Olympic Tab now on sale in the UK for £349, gold medal not included

    Aligning perfectly with what we’d heard a few weeks ago, it looks like Acer’s Londonized Iconia A510 will finally be hitting UK doorsteps, just in time for next month’s Summer Olympics. To give you a quick refresh, this special edition Olympic Tab boasts a Tegra 3 CPU, 1GB of RAM and 32GB of built-in storage — though, we can’t leave out the main addition of that Olympic logo on the tablet’s rear and those Eurosport channels to help you stay on top of the action coming from the renowned event. For all that, you’ll have to shell out £349 (around $550) at Carphone Warehouse, where it’s now up for grabs and being shipped gratis to folks who want to show off their Olympian support.

  • Nokia Lumia 610 with NFC hands-on (video)

    Nokia Lumia 610 with NFC handson

    You never know what’s going to be hiding in the deep dark corners of an event, and in our searches during the Windows Phone Developer Summit we came across the Nokia Lumia 610. But this isn’t just the standard fare; no, this particular version offers NFC and should soon be making its way to Orange. Yes, by offering Near-Field Communication, the handset will be compatible with Nokia’s NFC-enabled accessories like the Essence and Play360. While this elusive device is no stranger to us — we’ve seen it shown on video, it’s been certified for MasterCard’s PayPass service and it’s even been blessed by the FCC — this was the first time we held it in our hands.

    So what can we expect from this particular flavor of the Tango-running Lumia 610? Frankly, our impressions matched that of its non-NFC predecessor: build and overall feel remain unchanged from the original version. Naturally Nokia needed to find some space to stick the contacts and antenna, and those are inconspicuously found on the back of the device and on the battery cover, respectively. We still haven’t seen any pricing surface, but it’s been expected to arrive on Orange at the beginning of next quarter — which frankly means we could well see it available within the next couple weeks, though we couldn’t get an official date. Head below to get a good look at the NFC-enabled glory as well as a brief video showing the phone interacting with the Essence.

  • LG VS930 pops up at the FCC, may be world-roaming Optimus LTE II for Verizon

    LG VS930 pops up at the FCC, may be worldroaming Optimus LTE II for Verizon

    Verizon may be getting into a regular habit of carrying high-end LG smartphones. If the FCC is anything to go by, the Optimus LTE II could be next to get the Big Red treatment: a filing has just emerged for the VS930, a likely successor to the VS910 (Revolution) and VS920 (Spectrum). While it’s been showing up only in bits and pieces through certifications and tests, the more complete picture we’re getting now shows a world-ready roaming device. It has the requisite CDMA and Verizon-specific LTE frequencies, but also GSM and HSPA as bonuses — on AT&T-friendly bands, no less. LG is understandably shy about showing photos or other clues, but anything resembling the Optimus LTE II would flaunt a 4.7-inch 720p screen, a dual-core 1.5GHz Snapdragon S4 and that all-important 2GB of RAM. To us, the real question is one of timing. Verizon has been making a habit of offering one 4G-equipped LG flagship every year, but early 2013 would be a long time to wait for what’s more of an iteration than a… wait for it… revolution.
