Uber, a taxi service that got a lot of press in the US, is set for a UK launch. In an interview with TheNextWeb, Uber revealed that it’s planning to come to the UK this year. Uber launched to much interest and controversy. The Uber service gives you the ability to request a cab via iPhone or Android just by selecting your current location.

Drivers in the area with Uber will then be able to accept your request and you can then add in your destination. The cost of the cab is automatically charged to your account. We like the sound of it and would love to see it roll out in cities other than London. We’ll chase Uber up about its plans and bring you more news on its launch soon.
