The evidence seems to suggest that you need to develop for iOS first, Android second, and Windows Phone if you have the resources. But is it that cut and dried? ...

    Microsoft made me excited about a Microsoft product again. Cortana was really the last time that happened, and I’m happy to report that my excitement was well-founded in that case. But this year, Microsoft introduced Windows Holographic, an augmented reality self contained headset that has a ton of potential in many ...

    …and that’s not entirely Microsoft’s fault. After watching the Microsoft Windows 10 event I decided to give Windows Phone another shot, for a week. It was either that, or because I missed using the platform; it could have also been because I wanted to see what’s new in Windows Phone 8.1, or that getting an Xbox ...

    After Android 5.0 Lollipop debuted with the Nexus 6 and Nexus 9 last fall, Google was quick to start making Lollipop updates available for most of the rest of the Nexus family. We saw phones and tablets alike graduate from KitKat to Android 5.0, then 5.0.1, and most recently, a few select models have been graced with ...

    Microsoft Surface Hub promises to be a "powerful team collaboration device designed to advance the way people work together naturally" and to "unlock the power of the group".

    Last year, LG was one of the first big smartphone OEMs to bless its flagship model with a quad HD 2560 x 1440 display. In the time since, more and more manufacturers have come around to the idea of such crazy-high-res screens, and we're bound to see quite a number of these handsets among this season's launches.

    Huawei’s never quite been synonymous with premium handsets - at least, not in the United States. But that doesn’t mean that the company is incapable of making them, and we were reminded of that at IFA 2014 when the company unveiled the Ascend Mate 7. The phone effectively serves as Huawei’s flagship phablet, and ...

    OnePlus and Cyanogen have seen many bumps in the road with their relationship. First it was Cyanogen disagreeing with a contest run by the company (largely seen as sexist). Then it was the India fiasco, when Cyanogen left OnePlus in a tough spot following a deal with Micromax to have exclusive access to the company's ...

    Microsoft hasn't found the amount of success it wanted to see in mobile. Windows Phone is still just 3% of the mobile market, and even with its moves in acquiring Nokia's mobile division, the company is still struggling to re-invent itself internally. You could assume that Microsoft's interests in Android are low, given ...
