Stuff Office Cat's Diary - 11/04/13

Android on the cheap, PayPal on your telly and a child-friendly living room PC grace today's news round-up

Huawei G510 hits UK shelves tomorrow

Huawei's 4.5in G510 with 1.2 GHz innards, 5MP camera and 1700mAh might not get your spec-loving heart racing – but it's still not a bad deal for £130. It'll be out on Vodafone tomorrow for anyone looking for a cheap and easy foray into the green Android camp.

LG's Smart TV platform has just welcomed PayPal, making it even easier for users to snap up apps and games and shows on LG's shiny big screens. Office Cat looks forward to being able to order pizza from his telly, without even having to make the effort of reaching for the phone.
