    Technically, Asus foreshadowed Microsoft’s trend-setting 2-in-1 Surface family with an Android-powered Eee Pad Transformer dating all the way back to CES 2011. But it took the Taiwanese company a little too long to understand full Windows was the correct software path for convertible tablets, and now one can’t help ...

    “The pragmatist’s powerhouse” is all grown up, and while Asus doesn’t appear to have learned from past mistakes, once again diluting its own premium mobile brand, at least there are clear differences between the Zenfone 3, Zenfone 3 Deluxe and Zenfone 3 Ultra this time around.

And while we're looking at a limited launch bed for the June update, it's still noteworthy that Samsung has done it again. A subscriber to Spain's ...

    Maybe someone just can't compete with Pebble and they just need some room. Maybe HTC really is making the Nexus phones this year and Google decided to take them up for a reference design. Maybe one of the prides of Taiwan has just one huge feature it wants to stuff in and it needs rigorous testing before they feel ...

    If YouTube didn't show how deep Google's cloud bank has grown to be, bring on last year's I/O. The event brought on the free storage of lightly-processed images under 16 megapixels in resolution.

    In a time of transition where tablet growth is forecast for more convertible pastures, there are still manufacturers making slabs out there.

    It's the end of May and we're getting a little anxious about how Hong Kong-based TCL is holding off on its latest flagships. Sure, we can give a point to the company for trying to find a nice spot of its own after a very congested flagship season that carried on last week and looks to continue even in June. Still, ...

    We may be approaching a turning point in mobile technology, which in many ways is actually coming full circle. The time was that you had "accessories" like a camera, a PDA, a phone, a laptop, a watch, and a host of other devices on you that all performed a specific function.
