    Amazon never really set out to be a company that designed and sold its own mobile hardware, but a heck of a lot has changed since its early days as an online bookstore. From the initial success of the Kindle e-reader, Amazon's expanded its hardware offerings ranging from the affordable Fire tablets, to its Fire TV ...

    Samsung caught the world by surprise when it stayed mum regarding Galaxy Note 5 European availability during the S Pen phablet’s launch event, and completely broke the hearts of its old continent fans upon announcing the Galaxy S6 Edge+ will be all the flagship they’ll be getting this fall. But just because the Note ...

    From a hardware standpoint, the surprisingly popular OnePlus One smartphone has been clearly superseded by the Snapdragon 810-packing 2. Yet as far as software goes, the market “veteran” remains on equal footing with the rookie. Both handhelds now run modified versions of Android 5.1 Lollipop, the OnePlus 2 out the ...

    It was only a couple of days ago that Microsoft silently updated a Windows 10 support webpage to contain a key piece of information according to which 8GB of internal memory will be “required” for Lumia smartphones to run the operating system’s mobile flavor. In case you didn’t get the memo, or chose to ignore ...

    What comes after S, A, E and J? In Samsung’s alphabet soup of smartphone monikers, apparently O. But contrary to our assumptions from last week, the new handheld series incorporated in the grander Galaxy family will likely not consist of O5 and O7 members. Instead, the SM-G600 and SM-G550 should go official soon as ...

    The world just got richer with two new smartphones that are part of the new Obi Worldphone line-up, a fruit of the collaboration between Apple's ex-CEO John Sculley, and and Ammunition design founder Robert Brunner.

    It's been over a month now since Samsung shared news of its latest tablet, the Galaxy Tab S2. With a 4:3 screen, it's unlike most Samsung tablets that have come before it, drawing plenty of comparisons to Apple's iPad. Considering the heavyweight specs that help power the Tab S2, it may even draw some shoppers away from ...

    Apple's recent change in retail leadership has brought some interesting changes to Apple Stores. The Apple Watch pre-orders were definitely not popular, and forcing third-party accessory makers to adopt Apple-style packaging was just odd, but not all is bad. Today we see more changes happening as part of the new retail ...

    We all know that Apple owns an insane amount of patents, and in most of these cases, these patents cover things that would be insane to patent because of their simplicity. That said, these patents have helped Cupertino win trials against Samsung in the US, and against the Google-owned Motorola in Europe. This second ...

    As Amazon's Fire Phone started reaching its one-year birthday, it was clear the manufacturer was looking to unload old inventory. The smartphone's initially reception had been mixed, to put it nicely, and we failed to see the handset catch on with users in quite the way Amazon wanted. That's led to sale after sale, ...
