02/24/2014, The Google Play Store is full of custom Android keyboards but only few are as well known as SwiftKey, which bills itself as the “world’s smartest predictive keyboard.” This premium keyboard, which costs $3.99 on the Play Store, is certainly a popular choice with Android users. Those who switch to Nokia’s new Android phones will fortunately be getting SwiftKey for free.
02/24/2014, This morning, the world has had confirmation from Nokia that the rumors were true: Nokia has launched a couple of Android devices – but not the ordinary kind. Nokia wants to use Android to grow faster in emerging markets, but they are not using the typical Android distribution backed by the licensed modules from Google like the Google Play Market, Gmail etc. Instead, Nokia will promote Microsoft Cloud Services, and […]
02/24/2014, Since the launch of the Xperia Z, Sony has been back in the mobile handset game, and today, I was impressed with the quality of the new Xperia Z2 that was unveiled at the press conference at MWC. The key features of the latest Sony flagship are its gorgeous 5.2-inch Full HD Triluminos display and a 20.7 Megapixel camera featuring an Exmor RS sensor and Sony’s G lens. Sony’s mobile […]
02/24/2014, Smartphones come in all shapes and sizes, and naturally different price points as well. We have seen low-end handsets, and we have seen high-end handsets, all of which cater to different markets. That being said, it sees that Mozilla is planning on launching a smartphone that will ultimately cost just $25. Wait, but how is this possible? Well this is possible in part thanks to Mozilla’s recent partnership with Spreadtrum […]
02/24/2014, Some of you might recall that back in 2013, a certain Russian handset called the YotaPhone was released. In terms of being a smartphone, it was your standard fare in terms of its hardware and whatnot, but what made the YotaPhone stand out from the crowd was the fact that it came packing an e-ink display on the back of it, which we have to say made it a really […]
02/24/2014, [MWC 2014] So here we are at another year’s edition of Mobile World Congress in Barcelona, Spain, and have just heard how Alcatel One Touch has announced a bunch of smartphones from the Pop smartphone line, where it will be known as “Pop S“.

02/24/2014, [MWC 2014] So it turns out that the rumors were partially correct. Initially many had thought that only the Nokia X would be announced at MWC 2014, followed by two more Nokia Android devices in the later part of the year, but they were wrong as Nokia has not only announced the Nokia X, the Nokia X+, but also the Nokia XL.
02/24/2014, [MWC 2014] Nokia might have high end smartphones for the masses, but this does not mean that they also neglect those who find the likes of a Lumia Icon expensive, and yet want an extremely affordable phone that can hook up to the Internet. The answer to that? The Nokia 220, where it has been described to be “super affordable” alongside a 2.4″ display, Facebook and Twitter pre-loaded that will […]
02/23/2014, [MWC 2014] Back at CES 2014, Sony announced a wearable device called the SmartBand SWR10. The device itself is rather inconspicuous in terms of its design and is relatively thin in nature, making it a perfect device for those who would rather not sport something ostentatious on their wrists. That being said, not much was known about the device back then, but Sony promised more would be revealed at MWC […]
02/23/2014, [MWC 2014] Here we are at Mobile World Congress in Barcelona, Spain, and Stephen Elop has taken to the stage by touting just how well Windows Phone as a mobile operating system has done for itself over the years, where we are now at a point in time when Windows Phone holds 10% of the mobile operating system market, with an interesting snippet that the Nokia Lumia 1020 is the […]

After all who doesn’t love to see what kind of powerful hardware manufacturers can pack into phones these days, right? However as much as we’d like to see the best of the best smartphones, more often than not manufacturers need to cater to those on a budget or […]
02/23/2014, It is fair to say that the Sony XPERIA phone is the handset that marked Sony’s come back into the mobile phone scene, and it is only logical that the XPERIA Z2 was rather anticipated by Sony’s followers, but also by the industry at large.
