*It's getting hot in here* For those of you not in the UK we get all excited with a flake of snow, a clear blue sky and a gust of wind. It is though quite warm for us at the moment.

A midnight swim might be in order. All I need now is a pool or I could brave it and have a dip in the sea.

As Robin Williams was shooting ''Good Morning Vietnam'' in Thailand he mentioned on Johnny Carson that it was 100% humidity and that one could literally ''cook things in his pants''.

Can someone get that BT are looking to get shot of the traditional phone network so they can compete with the likes of Apple and Facebook. You can read more about that over on The Telegraph here -
goo.gl/EunzW2

Before you go though here's a question for you.

Do you still use a traditional phone from the likes of BT?

Roam free Using your handset or tablet in Europe and getting charged for roaming is set to end as of June 2017. That means you can use your device to call, text and use the internet without running up a bill you probably won't be able to pay.

Three already allow customers to roam at no cost in certain parts of Europe including Italy where they have agreements in place with networks under their parent company.

This will dent the profits of the networks so expect price rises to cover the loss which will be perfectly understandable and will either lead to a massive hike in PAYG costs or the handset subsidy going completely.

The link belwo takes you to the Gov.UK website where they are giving themselves a pat on the back.

You can also read a full press release from the European Commission here - http://goo.gl/VDsHIz - where they also mention net neutrality.

It will cost 16.6p per min to make a call, 4.4p per min to receive a call and 5.2p to send a text. In destinations where VAT is not applicable you'll pay 13.8p per min to make a call, 3.6p per min to receive a call and 4.4p to send a text.

Happy Birthday to you...... Google Earth is 10 years old today and to celebrate head on over to a desktop near you to catch the Voyager feature.

There are five new sections to explore and they are:

Street View: highlights from Street View, including the Taj Mahal and the Grand Canyon

Earth View: striking landscapes around the globe as seen from space (more below)

3D cities: a showcase of cities and towns available in photorealistic 3D (don’t forget to tilt!)

Satellite imagery updates: a map of our most recently published satellite imagery

Highlight tour: with thousands of Voyagerlocations to choose from, take a quick tour of a few to whet your appetite

Google Earth is an amazing programming achievement even though it has been around for 10 years and showcases just how great Google are at bringing services to us.

Oh oh Ever sent an email in haste and wish you hadn't? If you're using the Inbox by Gmail app for Android, the web and iOS.

Just after you hit the send button you'll have a few seconds to tap the undo button in a calm fashion before a picture or a few choice words end up in front of someone you rather they didn't.

There's a video showing it in action below. Get the app from Google Play here - https://goo.gl/8bWCBw

Android news for the UK, all things Android in the UK
Introduction
UK based Android blog hoping to bring all the news for Android users here in the UK. You won't find us on a website, after a trial with Google + we have decided to use what has to be a more fun, interactive and easier way to post. Most of my 'blogging' will be done using nothing more than a Nexus 7 3G tablet, great for posting on the go and takes full advantage of all the services Google has to offer. I may also use the super Nexus 4 to add content, 

Please feel free to get in touch if you have anything you'd like shared with our followers
