Nokia spent a few years under Microsoft’s wing as the company tried to compete in the lucrative smartphone market by relying upon Nokia’s iconic branding. It did churn out a couple of good handsets but they never really caught on. Microsoft took a hit on the Nokia deal and is now trying to completely shake up the smartphone industry, but that may take a lot of time. Until that happens, […]
This isn’t something that Microsoft is going to be too happy about. Despite repeated attempts to carve out a niche for its mobile operating system, the company continues to lose ground. Even as smartphone sales across the globe increased by almost four percent in the recent quarter, Microsoft saw Windows Phone market share dip below one percent. Lack of new Lumia devices from Microsoft is partly to blame for this […]
If you have it in your heart and mind to pick up a Microsoft Lumia 950 despite both Android and iOS platforms being two of the more popular ones right now (and will rightly remain so in the near future, too), then you might want to be on the lookout for a Lumia 920, Lumia 925 or Lumia 1020. Basically, whenever you bring one of the three mentioned older Lumia […]
If you are not a Lumia user, then chances are pretty high that you would not have heard of Lumia Voices before. Lumia Voices happens to be a Microsoft Lumia community, and unfortunately for those who are rocking to it, it looks as though it is time to search for greener pastures as Lumia Voices is set to shut down its operations from the 12th of April onward. Hey, isn’t […]
It looks like the folks over at Microsoft would want to update their collection of Lumia handsets to run on the Windows 10 Mobile platform some time next week, although the new firmware has not been seen just yet, without any official release date set, too. A Vodafone Italy representative was the one who came up with a list of the upcoming updates for these handsets.
Microsoft’s Windows-powered smartphones aren’t doing as well in the market as the company would want them to but it’s not giving up on them yet. It has released a couple of new handsets over the past year and is likely to come out with another in a few months. Lumia 640 has performed relatively well and to just give it a nudge Microsoft has decided to reduce the off-contract price […]
The Microsoft Lumia 850 made its way over to the rumor mill earlier this year in July, and in that particular leak back then, it did point to a fair number of details, where one of them was that the handset would be part of the OEM’s upcoming line of mid-range devices, which will also be accompanied by the likes of the Lumia 750 and Lumia 550. Ever since that […]
Not too long ago Microsoft unveiled two new Lumia flagship handsets that many had been waiting for a long time. The company certainly took its time to launch new flagship handsets and in between we kept hearing rumors that perhaps it would eventually come out with a Surface Phone as well, a brand new handset that carries the Surface branding that already covers Microsoft’s tablets and even its first laptop. It […]
We all know that Windows 10 Mobile will soon appear along the likes of the Microsoft Lumia 950, Lumia 950 XL, and Lumia 550, as those specific smartphones become available to more markets either some time this month or in the next. Having said that, there are many people who are looking forward to checking out what the latest version of Windows that will run on smartphone are like. Even […]
Yesterday, we did take a look at what was a possible Lumia 650 handset – which has been given the nickname ‘Saana’, as it was speculated to be a mid-range smartphone that will run on the Windows 10 Mobile platform. Having said that, the leaked Lumia Saana might not the real deal after all, as WinBeta’s Zac Bowden has mentioned that the shadow effect has been thrown into the mix […]
Microsoft has certainly done its fair bit when it comes to rolling out Windows-powered smartphones, and with the arrival of Windows 10, we have already seen a trio of smartphones hit the market since in the form of the Lumia 950, Lumia 950 XL and the Lumia 550, where the first two happen to occupy the high end market, while the Lumia 550 sits humbly at the bottom of the […]
It’s not unusual for companies to allow third-party manufacturers to develop and sell accessories for their devices, they do give the manufacturers some guidelines which they have to follow when designing and developing said accessories. A few days after its new Lumia smartphones were announced Microsoft has made it apparent that it has launched a “Designed for Microsoft Lumia” program for official third-party accessories.
Today is a pretty big day for Microsoft as it has unveiled several new products such as the first laptop it has ever built, the new Surface Pro 4 tablet and new Lumia flagship smartphones. The new smartphones come with a feature that allows users to use their Windows 10 Mobile powered smartphones as proper PCs, Microsoft has also launched a new Display Dock today that makes the entire process much […]
Windows 10 Mobile will soon be released and Microsoft will certainly need new handsets to push the updated platform in the smartphone market, merely updating existing supported devices isn’t going to be enough. The company is already expected to unveil two new flagship Lumia handsets later this month and now it’s being rumored that it has a new mid-range Lumia in the pipeline that features a metal build.
It has been a while since Microsoft launched new handsets and fans are anxiously waiting for the company to show off some new hardware. In a post on its official website about discovering new apps for Windows Phone that work well with Cortana the company appears to have provided a glimpse of an as-yet unannounced Lumia handset.
Yesterday, we were treated to a couple of renders of an upcoming device from the folks over at Microsoft which is sure to make even the coldest heart go a-flutter. We are talking about the soon to arrive Microsoft Lumia 950 XL, which is tipped by many to be unveiled at the upcoming event organized by Microsoft this 6th of October in New York City. Not only that, should the […]
It does seem to be rather difficult to keep a secret these days, don’t you think so? A bunch of new slides have shown off the kind of content that Microsoft’s upcoming trio of Lumia handsets will come with, namely the Microsoft Lumia 950, Lumia 950 XL, and Lumia 550. In an internal presentation, someone must have taken the opportunity to secretly snap some photos of the slides, where you […]
A picture speaks a thousand words, or so the saying goes, and while I agree with that in principle, it can be rather difficult to churn out that number of words from certain images. It is without a doubt, however, that pictures do tell a whole lot more than prose under certain situations, and a leaked device image is definitely one of those times. We all know that the Lumia […]
All good things must come to an end, as with all good stories, too. Although for some of us, the ending is best delayed for as long as possible. In fact, Microsoft has just announced on its Lumia Beta Apps website that the service will no longer be made available to the masses by the time October 1st, 2015 rolls around. Not only that, you are advised to save or […]
We all know that mobile devices do age with time, and that means hardware and software that become obsolete by the day. However, certain devices do seem to be “fresher” than the others after some time in the market, and the Nokia Lumia 1020 happens to be one of them, as it still sports a rather impressive 41MP camera that will be ideal for those point-and-shoot scenarios. Not only that, […]
