    If AT&T, T-Mobile and Comcast pulled zero-rate schemes in India like they did in the US, they would have to stop today.

    Windows 10 Mobile may be the future of Microsoft's smartphone platform, but for the moment users have precious few hardware options for enjoying the new OS.

    Like that football game that just happened, this news may not end up being a total upset to Windows 10 Mobile fans. After whiffs of a more-than-decent mid-range Lumia 850 — perhaps as Microsoft's last of the last Lumia phones — have settled, it seems that a change in the narrative was called for. Sidlers at Baidu's ...

    There’s a pretty healthy economy online for selling and trading used smartphones. Unfortunately there’s no guarantee that even a well-kept and functional device wasn’t subjected to smoke and tar from a smoker. Maybe you can send the device back to the seller, but if you’re stuck with it, that’s a bummer. A ...

    The sorry financial state of tech conglomerate Sharp has left few options for its creditors and potential acquirers in Japan.

Fitbit gets a fancy new band, manufacturers old and new are picking up the Windows Mobile mantle and a phone that'll probably never see the light of day changes up its OS.

    It was bound to happen sooner or later. After all, we’ve been hearing about the constant growth of smartphones in India since… forever, and the country is roughly four times as populous as the United States.
