The smartphone revolution goes On & On...
Remember the carefree days of the Nokia 6310, when you charged your mobile once a week and then forgot about it? The days when you didn’t spend your day begging the battery meter to stop falling and then, when that didn’t work, begging someone – anyone – to borrow a charger?
Since then, there have been a few attempts to replicate the amazing battery life of the 6310. We even had a go ourselves with the no-nonsense O2 JET, which managed an impressive 22 days’ standby. The problem with these ‘battery-phones’, though, was that they just weren’t… well… smart.
For years, phone manufacturers have been searching for the holy grail – a smart phone that doesn’t run out of battery if you so much as dare it to update your Facebook status. Ladies and gentlemen: that search is over…
Meet the On & On, from O2. It’s a touch-screen, camera-equipped, Wifi-enabled Android device. And here’s the show-stopper: It has an earth-shattering 1,000 hours’ talk time. It’ll sit in standby for 92 days!
We wanted a phone that would complement our new On & On tariffs. With unlimited UK mobile and landline calls, unlimited UK texts and plenty of data, these tariffs need a phone that will go on. And On & On. So, with the help of some of the world’s leading electrochemical experts, we developed this revolutionary piece of kit.
Running on Ice Cream Sandwich, the latest version of Google’s amazing Android operating System, the On & On packs a real punch in today’s smartphone market. It has an 8-megapixel camera with LED flash, which can record videos in 1080p HD. It boasts a powerful 1.2GHz processor and a 3.5” capacitive TFT touch-screen, Wifi a/b/g/n and Assisted GPS.
The feature-packed On & On from O2, with 1,000 hours talk time and 92 days’ standby. We think it’s going to revolutionise the smartphone landscape. What do you think?
