android mobiles are already only £20/month in the UK !

You can now get an android for only £20/month from two UK networks (three & vodafone) ! The downsides are the 24 month contract term and that they are slighter older HTC and Samsung models ! but you could always pay an extra £10-15/month if you really want the SONY 8M pixel X10 android !

You may now pay the same fixed price (typ 80p/min) on all roaming networks but the features you can access will vary ! For example if you use a UK three mobile in Turkey you'll only get Planet3 if you choose Turkcell.

Does the NOKIA 6220 really geotag your photos ?

The NOKIA 6220 advert on three.co.uk says:

You'll never miss a moment with the Nokia 6220 because it comes with a 5mp camera and Xenon flash to capture anything and everything you want

Not only this, but the 6220 has built in GPS, UK Nokia maps and geotagging capability for when you're rushing around on the move. There'll be no chance of you ever getting lost again

If you like keeping yourself informed by browsing the web and receiving emails, you can now do it from your mobile at broadband speeds on 3's Turbo (HSPDA) network. Chat to your friends on Windows Live Messenger, share your photos on Facebook, or use any of the many applications the 6220 comes with like Skype, and access to eBay and Google

but does this mean it really geotags your photo's when you take them ?

If so @ £15 / month (for 18 months) I'll be buying one tomorrow !
