Telstra has just announced that their HD7 and Mozart smartphones from HTC will be on the receiving end of the Windows Phone Mango update, although owners of the HTC Desire (strange to see how a high end phone becomes obsolete in slightly more than a year – the feeling is surreal) will cringe to hear that there will be no custom Gingerbread update – guess Froyo is as good as […]

It goes without saying that leaks are more or less a given these days, and it does seem to look as though loose lips are ever present in the digital environment. After all, how many new products are released without anyone catching wind of it through unofficial channels a couple of decades ago? That happened very rarely, but these days, if a leak does not happen, we would deem it […]
Acer has outed an upcoming handset at IFA, the Acer W4, but instead of Android it seems that the new handset will be running on Microsoft’s Windows Phone 7. Not much is known about the device, and based on the photos it does look rather plain and not very eye-catching.

Another month, another milestone reached for Microsoft Windows Phone. It was back in July when we reported about the platforms app store, Windows Marketplace, hitting 25,000 apps, and now it has been reported to hit 30,000 apps. While it’s still a way off from the 425,000+ iOS apps and 200,000+ Android apps available, for an operating system that’s not even a year old – it’s a pretty impressive feat. And […]
