    Microsoft has some big things coming next month. Rumors are swirling around, claiming that we will see two new smartphones, a new Surface Pro tablet and maybe even a Band 1.0 (I still consider the original Band to be a beta-project). So all of that could be really exciting, especially the promise of the Lumia 950 (or ...

    Last night, IFA brought us a bunch of new product announcements from Alcatel Onetouch, hitting all the bases with new phones, tablets, and wearables. That was just the warm-up lap, though, and tonight the phone-maker is back with a fresh set of hardware, including a couple new phones: meet the colorful Idol 3C and ...

    Back when the only competition was from Palm, I was a Newton guy. Sometime later (and way before the iPhone), Steve Jobs killed the Newton. I sold my MessagePad 2000U and switched to Microsoft's solution. Palm PC was renamed to Palm-sized PC, then to Pocket PC, and ultimately Windows Mobile (and all of them were powered ...

    Doing business in China can be tricky, to make an understatement. While the nation offers access to a gigantic user base, concerns over security and censorship can be difficult to adequately address, and that's led companies like Google to seriously ramp down its efforts in the nation. At least, that's been the ...

    Android Pay is positioned to be the new home of payments on Android (good name choice, considering), evolving as sort of the next-gen Google Wallet. We've had confirmed reports of Pay going back to late winter, and Google more formally shared some of its plans for Android Pay at Google I/O this past May. All this has ...

    The ZTE Axon may represent the company's big effort to make a name for itself in the US market, but despite the manufacturer's custom-made-for-the-US claims, it quickly became apparent that ZTE had international ambitions for this hardware. First we saw China get its own version of the Axon, and this week at IFA ZTE ...

    It may not have a 4K screen, nor even a 1080p one for that matter, but if you still yearn for a day when phones didn't feel like tiny tablets, when one-handed operation was a joy, the 4.6-inch 720p screen on the new Sony Xperia Z5 Compact may just be exactly what you need. We just put the phone head-to-head with its big ...

    For a certain type of smartphone user, Sony's something of a savior: in a world where all too often carrying a phone that dares deliver a screen size south of five inches means living with sub-par hardware, Sony and its Xperia Compact phones have managed to not skimp on flagship-level components. This week at IFA, we ...

    The way the latest rumors make things out to be, by this time next month Google's latest Nexus phones will be official. It's looking likely that we'll get our announcement right at the end of September, with Google revealing a pair of new Nexus phones for the first time. Of course, “in with the new” so often means ...

    Admit it: when you first heard those rumors about Sony bringing a smartphone with a 4K display to IFA this year, you had your doubts. Granted, we've known manufacturers have been able to produce such screens, but for someone to actually build a phone around one, and so soon? Well, this was a believe-it-when-you-see-it ...

Of course, Magenta ...

Cupertino would have probably been smart ergo to put off its A8-powered digital media ...

    First, it was allegedly called G4 Pro. Then, out of nowhere, tipsters started referring to it as the G4 Note. And now, it’s all of a sudden become the V10, in the most random naming twist since the G Vista. But you’re about to get even more confused as we remind you the LG V10 is expected to tow a curious secondary ...

    It’s a tablet. It’s an Android all-in-one PC. It’s… something else entirely. A tablet “so different we can’t call it a tablet”, according to the device’s very manufacturer. That’s right, Alcatel Onetouch is playfully uncertain exactly how to market the colossal 17.3-inch Xess, which manages to get a ...
