Windows Phone 7.8 To Receive Support Until September 2014
I don’t know about you, but I would like to take this bit of reported information with more than just a pinch of salt – an entire packet might do the trick though. It seems that support will continue to pour through for Windows Phone 7.8 at least until September 2014, while it would be July 2014 for Windows Phone 8.0. Hmmm, something does not sound quite right there, can […]

Web-based Windows Phone Simulation Gets Facebook
Back in November a couple of years ago, Microsoft devised a new and interesting method of showing off Windows Phone running on any device, using a web browser to achieve their end, and it did not pay regards to whether you are using an iOS- or Android-powered device, it is all the same to Microsoft.

Microsoft Promises Windows Phone 8 Devices Will Make Next OS Upgrade Cut
It is a clear (albeit sad) fact that smartphones which run on Windows Phone 7.x at this point in time, will not be getting an upgrade to boost the operating system to the far more current (and cooler) Windows Phone 8. You know what they say, what goes around comes around, but the karma police are not going to come knocking on Windows Phone 8’s door anytime soon as Microsoft […]

Ever since Nokia showed what Windows Phone 8 could do with its recent line of Lumia devices, a number of additional handset manufacturers have built their own WP8 devices. Companies like Samsung and HTC have built their own Windows Phone 8 devices, but LG has been on the fence whether or not they should get into the Windows Phone 8 game for some time now. Unfortunately, LG is reportedly not completely enthusiastic about […]

Skype For Windows 8 Updated
A new software update is always more than welcome by hardware owners, but if and only if the software itself has been thoroughly tested to make sure that it runs smooth as butter without causing more headaches.
