    On April 2, Nokia will unveil more Windows Phones, as the company itself has teased the event using the #moreLumia hashtag. Since it coincides with Microsoft's Build conference, we're likely to see an upcoming Windows Phone 8.1 device (or maybe more), but there's no word on whether we should expect a high end or a lower end phone (though multiple devices is still a possibility). According to the latest from @evleaks, T-Mobile Windows Phone fans should soon expect a Nokia device to land on Magenta's line-up. The codename mentioned is "Monarch". This T-Mobile Nokia Monarch could very well be ...

    Microsoft has really taken its time with Windows Phone 8.1, and the amount of expectation behind this release is huge. We saw a minor announcement of what we can expect during MWC 2014, but no substantial information as to when we should see it in actual consumer hardware. With Android 4.4 KitKat and iOS 7 gaining significant traction, it's clear that Redmond feels some pressure, and we finally see some progress today. It's being reported that Windows Phone 8.1 is ready, at least for its core team. The next step is for us to see the RTM (Release to Manufacturers) version, aside from the ...

    Nokia has already sent-out press invitations for its launch of the future of its Lumia line-up. These would be the first Nokia Lumia smartphones that are pushed to launch from the Microsoft leadership, and given the fact that Microsoft is a software company first, we wonder how this mix will help Nokia differentiate its Windows Phones going forward. Historically Nokia has done the best job in this department, and we get new rumors today about what to expect. If you remember, the previous Nokia updates were dubbed "Amber" and "Black". Rumors have Nokia calling its next firmware "Blue", ...

    We're sure it's annoying for those of you living in Europe, that the prices for almost every product in tech is exactly the same in numbers when compared to US prices, but with that exchange rate playing against you. Sadly it's a standard that has dominated the industry for a while, digital downloads from App Stores aren't exempt, and even though you'd think that companies would find ways to work around this, new legislation is actually about to make it more complicated. A recent law passed in the UK closes the loophole that allowed digital downloads to avoid UK taxes. According to the ...

    On September 3, 2013, Microsoft and Nokia announced a deal through which the Finnish manufacturer's Devices and Services division has been acquired by the Redmond-based software giant. After internal consents from the board, there were still a couple of hurdles in the deal's way, mostly represented by regulatory approvals. Nokia announced that next month, April, is when it expects "the sale of substantially all of its Devices & Services business to Microsoft". This will arrive just a tad late compared to the initial Microsoft-Nokia deal forecast of the acquisition closing within the ...

    The next iteration of Windows Phone, codenamed Blue, and with version number 8.1, is expected to be unveiled at the Build event happening soon.

Heading over to the source link below, you will land on the official Windows Phone page (its Features section, to be more specific). At the top left, you can choose to see Windows Phone 8, or Windows Phone 8.1 features. Of course, the Windows Phone 8.1 link will take you to an ...

    Virtual reality gadgets have become quite the thing lately, with products like the Oculus Rift VR making some headlines last year. Obviously at this point it's hard to tell just how well these products will sell, as most of them have barely reached retail, and others still haven't left the concept window. Now the biggest question is: Would you want to use a heads-up display for your smartphone? We've come across the Seebright's AR/VR head-mounted display prototype, which has a peculiar feature. Instead of being a stand-alone heads-up display, what it does is mount your current smartphone ...

    The Sprint HTC 8XT is a "midrange phone in flagship clothing"; that's the tagline of our full review, but even as a midrange, it is a smartphone by definition, running on Microsoft's Windows Phone mobile platform. Sprint apparently doesn't agree with that assessment and has demoted the HTC 8XT, as seen in the image above. Placed under "basic phones", right next to a Samsung, three Kyocera, and an LG device, the Sprint HTC 8XT is undoubtedly the highest end among them, when it comes to the user experience. Is this Sprint's way of saying "nobody buys this phone" or is the Now Network trying, ...
