    A few of our readers out there have asked me how I got the WiFi to turn on when arriving at certain locations in the new Windows Phone 8.1. We heard a while back that Windows Phone 8.1 would have the ability to turn WiFi on automatically after a certain amount of time, but the geolocation-based WiFi power-on option is a ...

    If you've never used wireless charging, you're missing out, and you just can't understand how convenient it is. Every time you need to charge your device, you've got to have a cord plugged into an electrical outlet (or a portable battery). You probably have a few of these "tentacles" positioned in strategic locations ...

    Windows Phone 8.1 dropped earlier this week. We saw it at Build, but now we’re actually using it. And it’s for really real. Sure it’s a “Developer’s Preview” and sure some of the features aren’t quite done cooking, but it’s a pretty impressive upgrade to what Windows Phone users have been using. Plus, ...

    Last week we heard about the possible Microsoft post-Windows Phone 8.1 update strategy, namely that three GDR updates might be in the works (GDR1 and GDR2 for this year, and GDR3 for possibly early 2015). While these, at the moment, are just rumors, a new report has surfaced trying to shed more light on GDR2 (as GDR1 is ...

    A smartphone kill switch, as described by CTIA's Smartphone Anti-Theft Voluntary Commitment, is "a baseline anti-theft tool" which will come, at no additional cost to the customer, pre-installed, or downloadable, on the first phones produced after July 2015, by the manufacturers adhering to the document. Network ...

    We tend to get a little fussy over carrier bloat, or the pre-installed applications that may come on a number of carrier-specific Android or Windows Phone smartphones. Bloat can and often does come from carriers, partners like Amazon, and even the manufacturer. For instance, I bought the T-Mobile HTC One M8 just this ...

    While most other platform developers, especially underdogs, might want to build upon their strengths while also strengthening their weaknesses, sometimes some good strengths get totally thrown out for no apparent reason.  We've written about Microsoft's tendency to remove features from their mobile operating system ...

    Software devs love peppering their releases with a few well-placed Easter eggs, and voice-based virtual assistants on smartphones have been no stranger to this trend: Siri can be goaded into telling knock-knock jokes, and Google Now will engage in some Star Trek dialogue if asked to beam you up. As a result, it ...

    Back in the day we used to refer to our electronic devices as PDAs -- Personal Digital Assistants. They weren't. In fact, they weren't much more than battery-operated day planners, the paper versions of which were in style around the turn of the century. Today these devices have given way to Internet-connected ...

    Windows Phone 8.1 is not Windows Phone 9. It might seem merely a bland truth or a bit of farcical arithmetic, but the above statement is important to keep in mind when considering Microsoft's latest update to its distinctive smartphone operating system. After over a year since the last major upgrade, it's natural for ...

    You may not remember this, but more than a decade ago, Microsoft embarked on the first move that wiped the Palm Pilot’s presence from existence. It may sound funny or odd to you today, but believe it or not, what Microsoft did was launch the first PDA with a color display. Today this is a standard, but when you walked ...

    One of the many changes Microsoft announced at Build 2014 back at the start of April was the arrival of universal cross-platform apps; you'd purchase it once, and then have access to the same software across Windows Phone, your Windows desktop, and eventually even your Xbox One console. Over the weekend, Microsoft ...

The Lumia 630/635 we've been following since we first heard its codename Moneypenny back in November of last year. Now that it's official, what are we to look ...
