    The virtual workspace of the future is being packed up inside of boxes and is getting sent out right the heck now! Or later. Maybe someone was too trigger happy, here. But maybe the Microsoft HoloLens is something to be happy about. We've seen the specs and demos and the pre-orders were made by developers. Now, we're seeing signs of movement. Received hololens shipment confirmation. Could have it as early as tonight, depending on actual status. — Rafael Rivera (@WithinRafael) March 23, 2016 Rafael, by the way, lives in Bellevue, Washington, not terribly far from Redmond. If he has ...

    We've already found one Windows 10 Mobile device fit for business at MWC this year, why not grab another one? Panasonic, the creators of the cameraphone (emphasis on camera), has just launched the Toughpad in both Windows 10 Mobile (FZ-F1) and Android 5.1.1 (FZ-N1) flavors. The company's very used to making its Toughpad devices — we last covered two of them in 2013. Both phones come running an advanced version of Qualcomm's Snapdragon 801 chipset at 2.3GHz. That engine powers a 4.7-inch 720p screen and is assisted by 2GB of RAM and 16GB of storage. What really matters on these devices ...

    We hate to ask since we've last mentioned this thing in January, but do you remember the Surface Hub? Touchscreens meant for board room meetings with great minds from anywhere in the world and a good bit of wall real estate. Well, it may be that them panels aren't coming any cheaper than they were before today. Microsoft started taking pre-orders of the Surface Hub on July 1, forecasted first shipments out by September 1 and then pushed that date down to January 1. The company muddied the waters today with a further delay: Q1. That's all we have. Sometime in the first three months of 2016. ...

    Microsoft has been eating up some good enterprise deals lately, including 30,000 Windows Phones for the New York Police Department. Satya Nadella's Nokia impairment manifesto mentioned a refocusing of its target demos. While superficially similar to the audiences its always targeted, Redmond has really taken a rejiggering towards getting businesses on-board with its mobile hardware. Now, SkyWest Inc. is taking a Windows seat to productivity with a huge order for Surface 3 tablets. Specifically, the 7,500 tablets will go to pilots of SkyWest Airlines and its sister carrier, ExpressJet ...

    Remember when Brazilian police snatched up a stolen Sony Xperia C5 Ultra demo unit? That was pretty cool. But what if police actually used smartphones in the line of duty instead of just seizing them? Police departments have been trying to push into the 21st century with their tactics and tools for ... 15 years now. We haven't reported much on the transformation of policing since 2009. But this story's worth sharing because it involves a mobile platform underdog: we can now confirm that Windows software for mobile devices is running on active NYPD equipment. Officers from the 43rd ...

    2015 is an interesting time in the high-security niche of mobile technology. Blackberry's making a migration of sorts to Android with not only its services but a device in the works, too. In the meantime, privacy services provider Silent Circle is cranking gears for the second version of its forked Android phone, the Blackphone. The companies pushing out the two platforms and the fanbases following them have shared molotov cocktails with each other on frequent occasion. Philosophies in summary Our Joe Levi has previously dissected the basic differences between what Blackphone and ...

    Why do so many corporations support BlackBerry and iOS, but not Android? That's a question I get asked quite often, and one that I find myself in the middle of with my own employer. I don't work for Pocketnow full-time. I've got a day job with a manufacturing company right here in Northern Utah. While this takes time away from reviewing awesome new hardware and hacking custom ROMs and Kernels on my platform of choice, it gives me a unique perspective. I carry an Android that I bought with my own money even though my day job offered to buy an iPhone for me. That choice came with some ...

    BlackBerry isn’t a name you hear mentioned in the mobile space anymore. It’s strange, since they used to be one of the biggest names in the smartphone industry, but like Kodak’s reign over photography, stagnancy deprecates relevance, and BlackBerry quickly fell by the wayside with the rise in popularity of the iPhone and similar products. Sure, they’ve picked back up a bit with BlackBerry 10, but with less than 1% market share, the company’s certainly fallen from its former dominance. Lately we’ve been seeing rumors going around that BlackBerry may be considering making an ...

    Last week, we discussed a little company called Microsoft and talked about what kind of market they'd like to focus on. We also briefly chatted about the kinds of devices it would be wise to bring to those markets. But our analysis pretty focused on one market when another went largely undiscussed. And that previously undiscussed market is “Enterprise.” Microsoft should focus on enterprise, as well as the low-end/emerging market. Of course, I like using the term enterprise, because it instantly perks Michael Fisher's ears, but once you remove Scott Bakula from the discussion, it ...
