Microsoft has a smartphone called the Nokia Lumia 520, one that they now have available to buy for $29. This is the Nokia Lumia 520 , a device that we've reviewed more than once - once as the 520 and another time as the T-Mobile version (basically the same device) as the 521 . Back then, it was cheap. Now it's staggeringly cheap.
Microsoft promised Windows Phone users a free upgrade to Windows 10 at its event earlier this week, but it turns out not all phones will be getting the update.

And so the Mobile World Congress 2015 comes to a close and now we're left to pick up the pieces of a whirlwind week. We've been bombarded by a lot of annoucements, new and old products, and promises, and now it's time to weed out the winners from the not so winners. Because everyone's a winner, right? But there are really quite a few that really piqued our interest and earned our applause.
It's been quite a while since we've seen Huawei put out an Android tablet but the day has finally arrived for a new one. Moving away, temporarily or permanently we don't know, from its existing MediaPad tablet brand, Huawei is bestowing its new tablet with the more familiar Honor mark.
You have to give the team at Yota credit for not giving up on their dual-display smartphone dream. The original YotaPhone was a curious - but flawed - riff on the Android smartphone, a regular screen on one side and an E Ink panel on the back, let down by immature software and hardware. Now, with the YotaPhone 2, the company believes both concept and product are ready for the mass market.
When Microsoft completed itsmulti-billion dollar purchase of Nokia, it also acquired a number of apps and services that were surplus to requirements. One of those was music-streaming app MixRadio, whichspun off as a standalone service earlier this year. That independence didn't last long, however, because it's just found itself a new home.
Android One 's fate in India is now unclearafter retailers decided not to carry the budget smartphone but there is still hope in the mobile world.

Formerly called Nokia Denim and now just Lumia Denim, the update brings in the latest version of Windows Phone 8.1 (update 1) to the devices, along with a bunch of Microsoft's own new features.
Microsoft 's red headed stepchild just can't seem to catch a break. Bad news come one after another for the Windows RT that, if the ARM-based OS were a cat, it would have pretty much run out of lives by now. Perhaps there is now very little reason to believe that Windows RT has any future beyond being placed on life support.
I don't use Apple devices, so I don't think this would affect me. Apple needs to remember it's going after only a portion of the market.I'd probably consider the Apple TV thing if it's ad-free and would have all the channels my shows are on. If it's like, just the basic stuff like the Big 4 plus sports, news, and family, I probably won't go for it.

Today we took the Raspberry Pi 2 out of the box and the static shielding bag to give it a first start-up and go. As you'd expect, loading software to an SD card is much the same as it was in the past - except here you're using a much smaller microSD card instead. After that, you've got a more powerful processor and 1GB of RAM to work, so it's time to get quick.
There’s an unusual degree of forthrightness - sometimes bordering on vitriol - in how outspoken people are about the new MacBook Retina . It’s something you see occasionally with high-profile, edge-pushing devices: not just dissent as to whether it’s a good product to buy or not, but a sort of slightly-frothy aggression in aiming to convince you that you’ve made the wrong decision.
