    What do you have when a prominent Android manufacturer gets it into its head to come out with a Windows Phone model? Something like the HTC One M8 for Windows? Sure, that can happen, and when things works well like they did there, it can be easy to get excited the next time you hear about a similar OEM considering some Windows Phone plans of its own. So with headlines going around today that there's a new Motorola Windows Phone model in the works, our interest was understandably piqued. As it turns out, though, while there could be some real meat to this story, that comes with one big ...

     "Our revels now are ended, Kirk." That's a quote from Star Trek VI, paraphrasing a line from Shakespeare's The Tempest. In the latter instance (minus the "Kirk" bit) it's a conceit of sorts, an admission that the play is a falsehood - and an observation that so, perhaps, is life. In the former example it's a wisecrack from a Klingon bent on shooting our favorite captain's ship out from under him. In both cases, it's a kind of farewell. And in today's example, it's also a goodbye - to the old times. That's a pretty dramatic way of saying that we're finally, officially past the post-CES ...

    Remember all that talk about Microsoft courting OEMs to Windows Phone by allowing them to create phones that could switch back and forth between running WP8 and Android? The ones that seemed so far out on the fringes of possibility? Well, we're not exactly looking at a polished mass-market phone from an HTC or a Samsung, but this afternoon we see the first handset that even approaches this goal, as we learn about the BM180 from Korean manufacturer Bluebird. The ruggedized BM180 (also available with additional environmental protection as the BP30) runs Android in addition to Windows ...

    Is 2014 going to be the year of fresh starts for companies that previously turned their backs on the smartphone market? After the shuttering of webOS, HP bowed-out for a couple years, but this week we saw the company step up to face the industry again, announcing its extra-large VoiceTab models running Android. Today we get word that another company that we though was done with phones may be sticking around for an encore, with rumors that Panasonic could be preparing to introduce a new handset at the MWC. As you may recall, we heard rumors about Panasonic leaving smartphones last summer, ...
