PC Advisor's top five tweets of the week - 14th December 2011

Gems we had to share

There's been plenty of tech talk on Twitter over the past seven days. Ofcom's admission that 4G networks won't be widely available until 2015 and the next iteration of Microsoft's Windows operating system, Windows 8, have been among the most discussed topics. Here's out five favourite tweets of the week.

Brits unlikely to benefit from 4G until 2015

Brits are unlikely to benefit from 4G networks until 2015, Ofcom has warned. According to the regulator's Draft 2012/13 Annual Plan, next-generation mobile networks won't be "widely available" for another three years at least.
"This stinks! Brits unlikely to benefit from 4G networks until 2015, warns Ofcom," we said in a tweet.

Why 2012 will be the year of Windows 8

In 2011 Apple and its iPad continued to dominate, but Android Honeycomb was the big mover. However, with Windows 8 set to appear in 2012, we believe it's going to be a three-way battle for your money.
Editor MattJEgan said: "Why 2012 will be the year of Windows 8".
