02/28/2014, When it comes to Windows Phone brands, Lenovo is probably not a company you would think of. Sure the company makes Windows-based products like laptops and tablets, but when it comes to smartphones, they tend to favor Android. That being said, it seems that Lenovo might be interested in attempting to break into the Windows Phone market with a smartphone of their own, according to reports from WP7Forum.ru. The reports […]

Also known as the Nokia “Moneypenny”, the Nokia Lumia 630’s most recent […]
02/28/2014, Which comes first – the chicken or the egg? This is the very same situation that many software developers and hardware manufacturers ponder over. Software developers say that they would like to see a platform increase its market share before they are able to throw their lot into it, while hardware manufacturers claim that unless software developers back their hardware right from the get go without looking at the user […]
02/28/2014, Out of all the mobile platforms, both Android and iOS enjoy the greatest degree of support, and by that, it also translates to the number of games which are revealed on both platforms. As for Windows Phone, well, reception in that particular department has proved itself to be rather lukewarm, but this does not mean that major titles still do not make its way there. FIFA 14, a title that […]
02/27/2014, If you have used WhatsApp before, you know that WhatsApp provides statuses on you that your friends and contacts can see. Basically it tells them when was the last time that you were seen online on WhatsApp. It’s handy if you want to check if a particular number is still being used for WhatsApp, but at the same time can be kind of stalker-ish. The good news is that WhatsApp […]
02/27/2014, Back in the day, devices by BlackBerry were considered to be the preferred mobile device for enterprises. This is thanks to BlackBerry’s encryption along with the BES service that allows IT admins to remotely monitor and wipe phones in the event that it is stolen or lost.

02/26/2014, Microsoft has picked up Skype slightly more than two and a half years ago for quite a hefty sum, but it does seem as though they have not been the fastest off the blocks to take over the app. While Skype was integrated into both the Windows and Windows Phone platforms in a relatively speedy manner, the software giant has not been that fast in pushing it out to all […]
02/26/2014, We guess it goes without saying that Windows Phone is hardly the largest smartphone platform at the moment. In fact based on past figures, Windows Phone’s market share is pretty small compared to the likes of Android and iOS, but apparently it is also the fastest growing OS in the world, according to a recent report on Mobile Trends released by Kantar.
02/26/2014, Word on the street has it that Samsung is looking to jump back onto the Windows Phone bandwagon with an upcoming release which has been given the codename, Huron. According to a recent tweet by @evleaks, it has been revealed that the Samsung Huron will most likely be known as the Samsung ATIV SE upon its release, which at the moment is still pretty much up in the air.
02/26/2014, Who uses Internet Explorer any more these days? All right, you need not answer this particular question since it is a rhetorical one, but it seems that Internet Explorer 11 has been allegedly teased in a video on a Windows Phone 8.1-powered device. It is said that Windows Phone 8.1 will offer a major improvement for Windows Phone owners, where it ought to be able to fix just about all […]
02/26/2014, Recently we picked up on a report claiming that Microsoft is mulling over the possibility of cutting Windows 8 licensing fees so as to get OEMs to develop relatively cheaper notebooks that hold up against the onslaught from Chromebooks. While a formal decision on that is yet to be made public, a new report has surfaced claiming that the company might cut Windows Phone licensing fees as well, apparently by […]
02/25/2014, Back in 2012, HTC released a handful of Windows Phone handsets, like the HTC 8X. In fact their colorful design reminded us of Nokia’s own Lumia lineup, but that’s a story for another time. That being said, HTC has been relatively quiet on the Windows Phone front ever since, but the company is hoping that will change this year. This was confirmed by HTC America President, Jason Mackenzie, who promised […]
02/24/2014, As long as a device is connected to the internet, there’s always the off-chance that it might be infected by malware. In the past we have heard of how various malwares have targeted Android devices (those reports are starting to become less frequent these days), and to a certain extent iOS and WIndows Phone handsets as well. That being said having an added layer of protection apart from the default […]
