    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.

    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 ...
