3GSM World Congress: Day two roundup

BT signs its first smartphone deal, Orange offers wireless storage for the enterprise and we test the BlackBerry 8800
Written by ZDNet UK, Contributor on

3GSM was in full swing on Tuesday as BT strengthened its hand in the mobile space. Two new smartphone deals with HP and HTC could help the telco regain the dominant position it lost when it sold its Cellnet division earlier this decade.

Orange is targeting the business market with a system that will give your mobile device access to 60GB of data, which you carry in your pocket. And one of HP's senior executives gave us a high-level view of the future of the mobile industry, from software radios to WiMax.

We also put RIM's BlackBerry 8800 through its paces, and learned about Nokia's range of new business handsets.
