BT £12.5bn EE Takeover Cleared By Regulator

BT £12.5bn EE Takeover Cleared By Regulator

The Competition and Markets Authority says it has taken into account a “range of concerns” and unanimously approved the deal.

BT’s £12.5bn takeover of mobile phone firm EE has been cleared following a ten-month investigation by the competition regulator.

The Competition and Markets Authority’s (CMA) decision was largely expected following the release of its provisional findings last autumn.

The watchdog said on Friday that it had taken “extra time” to consider the views of customers and competitors, who had raised fears of rising bills and market dominance in telecoms provision. read more

LG Will Launch The World’s First 55-Inch Curved OLED HDTV

LG Will Launch The World’s First 55-Inch Curved OLED HDTV

We heard that the curved OLED HDTV prototypes LG showed at CES would be coming soon, and now it’s official.

A Korean press release indicates we can expect the 55EA9800 to launch in the next month, with shipments starting in June. According to the specs, its 4.3mm depth results in a weight of just 17kg, probably thanks to a carbon-fiber reinforced frame.

Like an IMAX theater screen, the edges are curved towards the viewer to provide a more immersive feeling. Given the fact that we’re still waiting for LG’s flat OLED TVs to see a wider release we doubt it will arrive on US shelves any time soon, but until then you can check out our in-person pics from CES below, and a video after the break.

Update: LG sent over the English press release, which confirms pre-orders start today at more than 1,400 retail locations with a price of 15 million Korean won ($13,500), a healthy bump over the standard version’s $10K MSRP. Release dates and pricing for non-Korean markets are coming “in the months ahead,” check after the break to read all the details first hand.
