    Last month we learned about Google's plans for a big expansion of Wallet, joining forces with the carriers behind Softcard (née ISIS). And while that's good news for Google, Wallet, and arguably Android mobile payments in general, it hasn't been such a promising turn of events for everyone involved. As a result of this ...

    Good artists copy. Great artists steal. Artists with body guards brag about it. Or something like that. But in the world where three major operating systems have reached a level where they’re all perfectly fine, and if the other two disappeared for whatever reason, most people would be able to carry on with the ...

    At this point, it's fair to say that much of the wind has left MWC's sails. From a Sunday packed with pre-MWC launches, we've been seeing a steady dwindling-off of new high-profile hardware as the week unfolds, and by now if a manufacturer had something good to launch at the expo, it's been launched. However, MWC isn't ...

    With as many products as are on display at MWC 2015, it can be tough to make your accessory stand out. Deliver something nice and functional, but with a cookie-cutter design, and you're liable to find yourself quickly forgotten. But spruce things up with a little sound, a little light, and dare we say a little motion, ...

    When we come to an event like MWC we know we're going to be introduced to new hardware: that's a huge part of the fun in covering expos like this. And while we could report on just-launched devices until we run down our batteries to nothing, MWC isn't just about meeting new gadgets – it's also about learning new ...

    Just a couple days into its run, and Mobile World Congress 2015 is already starting to slow down - way down.  That's largely a consequence of so many manufacturers jockeying to get their big announcements out first, leading to a pre-MWC Sunday that was positively stuffed to the brim with new hardware. Ever since, the ...

    Microsoft’s MWC 2015 event brought us a couple new smartphones with the launches of the Lumia 640 and 640 XL, but it wasn't just new handsets the company brought along to the show.

    Yesterday was a hugely busy one for new mobile hardware, led off by HTC and Samsung's announcements of the One M9, Galaxy S6, and Galaxy S6 Edge. And while those gave us plenty to pay attention to, we hadn't even really gotten MWC fully started yet - that would wait for today. And the first official day of Mobile World ...

    Coming into MWC we didn't exactly have high expectations for what sort of new Windows Phone hardware it might bring us, resigned to getting a largely Android spread. But there was still hope, and even without rumors of a big, sexy flagship, it started to look like Microsoft might still have some new handsets for us. ...

    Microsoft in Barcelona has just taken the wraps off of the Lumia 640 and 640 XL at Mobile World Congress, mid-range smartphones that Microsoft means to "build on the success [the company has had] in the affordable space," available for purchase in April. The regular 640 features Windows Phone 8.1, as well as a 2,500 ...

    The wait for a Windows flagship smartphone has been long and dire. Just as rumors came up, they simmered down just as quickly, and we haven't heard much about when we'd be seeing the next flagship from Redmond. There's an event today that the company is hosting for MWC, which we remain hopeful about though, so join us ...

    Barcelona is a tad colder this time around than last year. Maybe it's the weather, or the fact that we can't wait to see all the goodies the companies have in store for us.
