    Microsoft has recently cranked the anti-Apple advertising rhetoric back up, although not in a particularly convincing fashion, likely looking to keep last year’s Surface Pro 4 and Surface Book convertible PCs in the limelight for a few months longer, as major hardware revisions could still take a while. Discounts on both the super-high-end 13.5-inch laptop and slightly less impressive 12.3-inch tablet are of course nothing new, but a couple of configurations have constantly been left out of Redmond’s frequent sales events. Not today, at least as far as the humblest Microsoft Surface ...

    The Elite x3's initial rush to market has HP reeling the Windows 10 Mobile phone back just a bit. While the US is seeing some sales action going on, some Microsoft Stores are holding back. In particular, there's one in Virginia that won't sell the high-power, business-focused device until mid-October. Windows Central was notified that a tipster got word "that the Elite x3 cannot be sold until October 11th." Inventory is in stock rooms, but the main roadblock happens to be camera issues that HP is trying to fix. The Microsoft Store websites for the US and Canada have listed the phone for ...

    The Lumia 950 started life at the Microsoft Store in the UK at £449.99. Even with Brexit killing the Pound Sterling's buying power, discounts have been cascading upon the phone as its popular reception chilled from cool to freezing. After dropping to £289 last month, the SIM-free Lumia 950 is now some 45 percent off its original price at an even £249. The price looks to be a permanent one, at least as permanent as the price justification. Over in the states, the Lumia 950 has seen a temporary 10 percent chop in cost to $359.10. If you buy either the 950 or the 950 XL from the ...

    The HP Elite x3 is beginning to let loose of its pre-orders period globally — though each country has to play it by ear — and it looks like the UK side of operations is ready to get away from the qualifying heat and shoot for the real thing. Both HP and Microsoft are offering the phone for its revised £706.80 price with delivery wait times as low as two days. HP's site is warning people of low stock, but that's all the word from HP. It's still the only meaningful Windows 10 Mobile phone that has a Snapdragon 820 out there. Might as well get comfy with it. Source: HP, Microsoft Via: ...

    While HP and Microsoft tried their best to make it clear off the bat that the Elite x3 isn’t meant to put Windows 10 Mobile on the consumer OS map, it’s hard for the masses to not get excited about a phablet so much better than the Lumia 950 XL, at least on paper. Unfortunately, the HP Elite x3 provides features and specs perfect for both business and everyday power users… at a prohibitive price as far as the latter group is concerned. If you perhaps hoped Redmond would steer the ship away from a guaranteed collision at the eleventh hour stateside and up north, we’re sad to report ...

    Three long months after it started selling on European shores, not to mention six excruciating months after its year-opening CES introduction, the Acer Liquid Jade Primo with Windows 10 Mobile pre-installed is finally up for grabs stateside at $650 unlocked. Too… much, too late? It certainly appears so, especially given the 5.5-incher’s Snapdragon 808 processor, 3GB RAM and Full HD screen resolution, all a tier or two below most recent Android high-enders. Even within the humble W10M ecosystem, it feels hard to justify a Jade Primo purchase at $650 when you consider Lumia 950 and 950 ...

    Is it still worth even thinking about buying the Lumia 950 or the Lumia 950 XL at this point? Or might you be interested in a Surface Phone? Whatever the case, Microsoft's still re-offering this deal to the US and Canada anyway, so you might as well take heed and think about it. If you decide to get a Microsoft Lumia 950 XL from the Microsoft Store for $649 (or $849 up north), you'll get a black Lumia 950 for free. Both devices are unlocked and set for your local GSM networks. The deal is good until June 27 or next Monday. To maximize the savings, you can get a free year of Office 365 ...

    Want a different take on the Microsoft Surface 3? Huawei introduced one earlier this year with its MateBook. Since February, the products made its trek around the world. It's only now crawled back around to the US for a launch here. Hardware-wise, Huawei's crafted an 6.9mm thick aluminium chassis to hold in a 12-inch IPS LCD at 2160 x 1440 display with viewable angles through 160 degrees of rotation. Windows Hello takes advantange of dual array of microphpones and a side-mounted fingerprint reader. A 33.7Wh battery should get you through a nine-hour day. Intel's 6th generation Core M ...

    Following the launch of the Axon 7, ZTE announced that it will be building 23 retail stores for consumers to go hands on with products. Most of these stores will be in China, but we're expecting to see an outlet in Mexico, and some presence in Europe. For all of our high tech shopping options, is the future of technology retail a return to "brick and mortar" retail? Tech purchases are often fairly emotional. Our gadgets need to satisfy daily tasks, but our gadgets also need to tickle our brains in some way. Whether it's design, color options, style, status, or some other intangible, a ...

    Oculus is about to be more visible than ever before this weekend as the company can finally stop going it alone in sales. Its Rift headset will be coming to the Microsoft Store online and Amazon on May 6 at noon Eastern. It'll also hit the brick-and-mortars with 48 Best Buy stores nationwide demonstrating and selling the virtual reality rig starting on May 7 with more locations soon to stock the Rift. Oculus warns of limited inventories as it's already barely keeping up with pre-order volume. If you already did put in a pre-order and are arranging to get a demo and a purchase at a Best ...

    Is this whole "online ordering" thing just a crapshoot to you? Want to get away from the evils of Amazon Prime? Or the shipping confirmation pages of those cartel cargo movers? Do you absolutely abhor the Oculus Rift? Have we got news for you! A select few Microsoft Stores and GameStops in both the US and Canada will have demo areas to show off the purported magic of SteamVR as experienced through the HTC Vive. For Microsoft, it has initially setup space in its New York flagship outlet as well as stores in Bellvue Square and Salt Lake City's City Creek Center. The Microsoft Store at Park ...

    Over the weekend, the Westchester, one of New York's trendy suburban malls, had a two-day fashion event as part of the "Simon Fashion NOW" mall tour designed to show off many of the stylish products available in its stores. Of course, you would expect to see new outfits from the likes of LOFT, J. Jill, Victoria's Secret, White House | Black Market, Gap, Anne Taylor, Tommy Hillfiger, Eileen Fisher, Juicy Couture, Bebe, Banana Republic, Cache, Hugo Boss, and other clothing stores that have shops in this particular mall. They were all there with their own little fashion shows, but there's ...

    It's rapidly starting to look like your best chance at getting a Surface tablet in the next couple weeks (unless you're order's already in, of course) is to head over to a Microsoft retail store. For those of you planning to make the trek, Microsoft has revealed an added incentive to help sweeten the deal, offering some customers a year's worth of premium Xbox Music service. We talked about Xbox Music a little last week, upon Microsoft announcing the cross-platform streaming service. While it's going to be free as an ad-supported edition on Windows 8 devices, a premium $10 monthly ...

    This was a big morning for Microsoft: it opened its first retail store in Boston (but not its first in New England), and it took the wraps off its first major logo revision in a quarter-century. That the company chose Beantown as the venue for such a high-profile announcement was doubtless no accident; Microsoft has been beefing up its presence in and around the city for the past few years, most notably in the form of its Microsoft Research branch in neighboring Cambridge, MA. Today's store announcement saw the company further shore up its relations with the greater Boston area, donating ...

    Slow news day? Got that right!  How about I tell you about my visit to the grand opening of the Microsoft Store in Danbury, CT then?  First of all this is the first Microsoft Store to open in New England and it's the 3rd to open in the North East USA (with two others already up and running in New Jersey).  Of course there was a line to get into the store for the grand opening since visitors would get tickets to a concert later that night as well as a free bag and t-shirt.  While waiting for the store to open, some of the store employees gave away things like an Xbox, Laptop, and other ...
