Get a Nokia 220 for only €9.99 from @CarphoneIE if you switch to Vodafone,by @jimboireland #Nokia

Get a Nokia 220 for only €9.99 from @CarphoneIE if you switch to Vodafone,by @jimboireland #Nokia

Carphone Warehouse have just made a delightful tweet with a nice phone at a nice price its the Nokia  220 and its yours for only 9.99 if you switch to Vodafone on PrePay.

This is a fantastic bargain and also a good idea to have a spare device or even a gift for someone.





The Nokia 220 uses the cloud powered Nokia Xpress Browser with Microsoft Bing search enabling you to search and surf the internet longer and for less.

Keeping you connected, Facebook and Twitter come pre-loaded right out of the box, allowing you to share and explore straight away and no matter where you are.

As well as an in-built MP3 player, video player and FM radio (headset required), six high-quality Gameloft games – Asphalt 6 Adrenaline, Assassin Creed, Block Breaker 3, Brain Challenge 3 and Modern Combat 2 – come pre-loaded, offering even more fun on already-great devices.





The Nokia 220 house a 2.4-inch color screen, a 2-megapixel camera and up to 32GB microSD card support.

Connectivity wise, the Nokia 220 has a micro USB port for data transfer and charging, and Bluetooth 2.1 with Nokia SLAM; a feature that allows you to share multimedia content like photos and videos with nearby friends, wirelessly, and almost instantly.

You will even be able to see in the dark thanks to the integrated flashlight.

Its look is distinctively Nokia, taking both heritage and contemporary design cues and creating a sophisticated device that belies its price.

The Nokia 220 comes in a range of eye-catching, inherent colored covers – red, black, white, yellow, cyan – with matching keypads. The quality of the materials and our attention to detail will ensure the Nokia 220 will keep up with the rigors of everyday use.




This is the single sim version on sale.Source

Desire Gaming Ltd bring  The app to @jimboireland #Apps #WindowsPhone.

The is one of Irelands leading online news media and have apps both on Android and iOS and still none for Windows Phone users,this has been asked many times by fans and in 2014 we still have no application which is not impressing windows phone users despite Windows Phone has now an estimated 10% market share here in Ireland.

Windows Phone is growing,slow it might be but it has jumped in the last two years and will continue to grow but perhaps not as fast as expected.

Last year we also had a Windows Phone app by Brian Gibson who also developed an app for and and not forgetting

This time around Desire Gaming has brought a app to the table,if you remember last year they brought us Electric Jake .

journal store app


The App seems to work quite well with options at end of screen to toggle between sections,this is a nice feature..we are testing it on our Nokia Lumia 735 here and it seems pretty good and has no ads.


You can download the app by clicking the image at beginning of post.Let us know how you find it..

Note,the developer has no affiliation with the journal and has created this on his own time until the Journal perhaps in time do decide to make the app…

The Nokia Lumia 735 is heading to Meteor Mobile and E mobile. by @jimboireland #NokiaLumia735. #Ireland

The Nokia Lumia 735 is heading to Meteor Mobile and E mobile. by @jimboireland #NokiaLumia735. #Ireland

The Nokia Lumia 735 is slated as the selfie phone and has recently gone on sale around the world and here at home on the irish microsoft store.

Up to now there has been much silence to this and the 830 and where the networks stance is on carrying these two models,With the 1320 and 1520 at end of life here there leaves us just with the Lumia 930 as our flagship,there is an abundance of choices though for the low end and entry level section with the 530,630 and 635.

This leaves the mid tier section out for windows phone users and as an option to buy from carriers here right now this department is minimal to say the least whereas the online sim free option gives us a good choice but we will pay over the odds compared to subsidised models from our networks.




A few weeks ago we asked Meteor Mobile and other networks about the 735 and 830,to date VODAFONE are only selling the 830 for now and no options elsewhere.

Meteor/eMobile however seemed to have changed their mind on the 735 as when asked a while back they said NO,now they have said yes to the Nokia Lumia 735 which is indeed great news for potential buyers..

Over on the supports forum where we are active members and indeed on several other forums Meteor/Emobile brought the good news this morning…




















As mentioned in the post there is not much info as yet but nonetheless its a good sign..for now it looks like a fortnight on arrival to the networks..

Will you be picking this up??

Have a look at our 735 unboxing and walkaround below..

Send Video instead of Text!!! “SKYPE QIK” by @Tiwaash #SkypeQik #WindowsPhone #iOS #Android

Originally posted on TechBuzzIreland.Com:


Things are getting interesting with new concept apps coming up almost everyday and after Microsoft launched XIM it now has something coming up from Skype, a new group video messaging service, SKYPE QIK.

QIK allows you to capture videos and share it with your friends even when they are not online, something like say offline Skype. Skype says “Don’t just send just text or photos. Go full-video with Qik”. Qik brand new and also it’s the very first app from Skype… since Skype, so expectations are high. It is available on all the three platforms WindowsPhone, Android & iOS.


There is no need to sign in, just enter your phone number, verify it and you are good to go. The interface is simple and easy, you can share videos with a single contract or group. Video starts recording with the press of the icon. So enjoy and let us know…
