    Call it Sirius, call it the D6503, heck – even call it the Xperia Z2 if you're feeling confident – but whatever name it goes by, this is one upcoming Sony smartphone that's been enjoying some pre-release spotlight action. We've had a number of chances to look at the hardware so far, and other than a tiny little increase in screen size, the hardware has appeared to strongly resemble the still-quite-new Xperia Z1. Over the weekend, a new video became available of the D6503, offering what may be the best look yet at the smartphone. Early on in the clip, before we start looking at the ...

    The past several weeks have already offered us more than a few opportunities to look at the Sony D6503 “Sirius,” the handset expected to be the next Z-series flagship, and a phone that just might launch as the Xperia Z2. Back in January, some images arrived that showed Sirius up against the Xperia Z1, letting us see what changes to the design (and there really weren't that many) Sony might have in store. Today we're back in the same ballpark, only this time with an additional model for comparison, as Sirius sits down with the Xperia Z1 and Xperia Z. From left to right up top we're ...

    The idea that Nokia could finally be making a Windows tablet has been kicking around for a while now, and rumors have taken a few swings at identifying some of the hardware we'd see in this 10.1-inch Windows RT device, codenamed Sirius. While it had started to feel like this model was actually going to launch, some new rumors are singing a different tune, and claim that Microsoft could be trying to kill Sirius as part of its Nokia acquisition deal. According to Eldar Murtazin, even with the deal not yet finalized, Microsoft is already trying to influence Nokia's product decisions, and is ...

    There's one fewer Romanian on this week's podcast, and we're no longer hovering over a precarious microphone stand made of empty shoeboxes and trash cans in a European hotel room - but that doesn't mean this latest episode of the Pocketnow Weekly is lacking in charm. On the contrary, we've called in a silver-tongued devil from Honduras and a smooth-talking geocacher from middle America to provide two very different perspectives on some very high-visibility smartphones. That's right: it's Apple week. That special time of year where iOS makes its way to the top of our rundown and instigates ...

    The Microsoft Surface Mini isn't the only upcoming Windows tablet whose details are getting a little fleshed-out today. Beyond just sharing a few new tidbits about that eight-incher, Paul Thurrott has a number of things to say about some other upcoming tablets, including the Nokia model we've been so anxiously following. We've already heard a decent amount about this 10.1-inch Windows RT tablet, codenamed Sirius. That's included specs like a Snapdragon 800, 2GB of RAM, and 1080p screen. Thurrott expands upon all that with a few specifics. While we had a general sense of size and weight ...

    According to a recent Adduplex blog post, there are a couple of new devices that have accessed its Windows ad network. Among them, two Microsoft names have popped up: first is the  Microsoft Corporation Surface 2, which could very well be the follow-up to the Microsoft Surface RT. We've given it the After the Buzz treatment recently but after the entire fiasco, the Redmond-company might opt to ditch the "RT" from the tablet's name altogether. Second is the "Microsoft Corporation Surface with Windows 8.1 Pro", which could either be the next-gen Surface Pro, or a Surface Pro running a ...

    A couple weeks back we got a brief look at what purported to be a Windows RT Nokia tablet. A few specs were mentioned, like how it would run a Snapdragon 800 SoC and feature a 10-inch 1080p display, but we neither had a very complete picture of the device, nor had reason to be particularly confident in the source. Today, further confirmation keeps making this Nokia tablet sound more and more real, now tipped to be under development as codename Sirius. That's one of those Nokia codenames mentioned in a recent leak. This source reaffirms a 10.1-inch 1080p screen, and one that's supposed to ...
