If you have already placed an order, we have already begun shipping many orders with further orders due to be dispatched tomorrow.

If you have not yet placed an order, but have been holding out for stock to arrive then we can confirm that you can now order yours today as stock is here and ready for shipping.

As and when your order is dispatched you will receive a dispatch confirmation.

We are including FREE accessories with every Xperia Z3 Compact purchased.

Some customers will receive these accessories with the phone.  For those customers who do not receive the accessories; these will follow in a separate package, at no cost to you, in the next couple of weeks.

Naturally you are keen to get hands on with your phone as soon as possible.  Please rest assured that we are working as quickly as we can to dispatch all orders.

We ask kindly that you avoid contacting us for an update on your particular order, unless we contact you with specific queries. The more people we can dedicate to shipping phones the sooner you will receive it.

Thank you for your custom and we hope you enjoy using the Z3 Compact.

BlackBerry Passport Now Available for Order

BlackBerry PassportWe have all been waiting a long time for the BlackBerry Passport, as there has been a huge amount of tantalising information released over the last few months.  The good news is that you can now order this innovative BlackBerry product, with first stock being available from the 29th September.  BlackBerry has shown that they can again produce interesting products with the Passport including many new features we haven’t seen before.

There is the overall design which like the name indicates is about the size of a passport.  With this form factor, it has given BlackBerry the ability to include a 4.5″ display which unusually for a smart phones is square and has a corresponding 1440 x 1440 resolution.  This makes reading documents and browsing the Internet easier, as there is more room available making each line longer.

The display is not the only innovation as BlackBerry has made some changes to the keyboard with it now being a 3-row QWERTY layout.  This is more like a typical keyboard and BlackBerry has said with practice this will make user more efficient at writing emails and editing documents.  There is also the ability to use more features via a touch interface, so you can navigate around the Internet and interact with documents without taking your fingers away from the keyboard.

BlackBerry Passport_2BlackBerry Assistant provides users with the ability to interact with their Passport using their voice.  This makes it easy to use features like the calendar, phone and emails when you are in a rush.  It also adapts to your voice over time making it more reliable at understanding your commands.  If you thought that BlackBerry Assistant would have only a limited number of commands then you will enjoy the fact that you can use many of the features of the Passport with it.

This phone is also no slouch as BlackBerry has chosen to include a powerful 2.2GHz quad-core processor and a generous 3GB of RAM.  So your apps are as fast as possible and you can multi-task efficiently.  There is also 32 GB of internal storage and the ability to use up to 128GB microSD cards, giving you plenty of storage for all your apps, movies and photos.

To make sure you can use the Internet as fast as possible when you need to get information quickly BlackBerry has included 4G LTE connectivity.  So you will be able to browse the web and download apps faster that your would have thought possible.

Cat B15Q Tough Smartphone – Battery Life

Cat B15Q dustWith many recent smart phones it is difficult to get a full days usage out of them.  The days when you could charge your phone once a week seem behind us, but the Cat B15Q Tough Smartphone has better battery life than most.

Cat has given the B15Q a large 2000 mAh battery which means you have talk time of up to 16 hours.  This means it should get you through an entire day of talking without any worry about running out of power and having your call cut off part way through.

You can also take advantage of the many features available with the Cat B15Q such as Wi-Fi and Bluetooth without having to constantly keep turning them off to save power.  There by restricting your usage of the phone.  Making the smart phone better able to fulfil your requirements and giving you a better experience while using it.

Being able to keep talking for 16 hours is not something most of us will do within a typically day.  It does however give a good sign of the battery efficiency the Cat B15Q has.  Most of us however occasionally make phone call and do a bit of web browsing in a typical day.

The rest of the time the smart phone is in standby and it is good to know the Cat B15Q can stay in this mode for up to 21 days.   Keeping you away from your charger for longer and removing the constant need to charge the phone.

Check out the Cat B15Q Tough Smartphone.

Cat B15Q Tough Smartphone – Android 4.4 KitKat

Cat B15Q rightTraditionally smartphones which have a rugged design use older versions of operating systems.  An older example of this was when you could buy a rugged phone with Windows 6.5 installed, long after it disappeared from general consumer phones.

This is due to companies often having update schedules, as well as using bespoke software which needs testing to make sure of compatibility with multiple systems. There are also costs implications with moving to a new OS which typical consumer devices do not have to worry about.

It is therefore refreshing that we have seen a different approach from Cat, in that they are offering the latest version of Android with the B15Q Tough Smartphone.

The first rugged phone with Android 4.4

4.4 KitKat provides many benefits and improvements over earlier versions of Android, making the Cat B15Q an interesting product for anyone looking for a modern, rugged smartphone.

So what are the improvements with Android 4.4 and how do they enhance the B15Q?

A feature you may have heard about is “OK Google”.  With it you can perform searches, send text messages, get directions and access many other abilities of your phone by simply using your voice.  This means that if your hands are dirty and you don’t want to touch the screen, you can still access many of its functions. All you have to do to activate this voice control is say “Ok Google”, just as the name implies.

There is also enhanced caller ID which retrieves information from local listings within Google Maps. This can be great for helping you know who those unrecognized numbers are, giving you the option to take the call, or ignore it as necessary.

All of your communication is now consolidated into one place, bringing together your SMS, MMS video calls and Google Hangouts chat messages. This means you no longer have to hunt around for messages you know you received, but can’t quite recall from which service. This makes it easier to follow all communications between friends, clients and yourself.  Also if you chat with certain people more often, your Cat B15Q will automatically sort your contacts and rank these based on popularity making them easier to find.

Cat B15Q dustIf you ever need to create documents quickly you will welcome the integration of QuickOffice. This is now pre-installed on the Cat B15Q and enables you to edit documents, spreadsheets and presentations, whether you have used Microsoft Office or Google Docs to create them.

These are just some of the features which show how having Android 4.4 KitKat improves the capabilities of the Cat B15Q Tough Smartphone, giving you the ability to do more, quickly and efficiently.

Check out the Cat B15Q Tough Smartphone, currently available from Clove for £234 (£195 ex-VAT), with FREE Cat Safety Glasses while stocks last.
