HTC has always had a pretty solid grasp on the midrange market, particularly with their Desire line. With decent specifications, low price, and solid build quality, it’s sometimes extremely hard to not think about picking one up.

The successor to the best-selling Windows Phone device of all time, the Lumia 520, is coming to T-Mobile USA.

The differences between the two start with their mobile coverage, of course - both brands bring their own carrier-branded apps and data coverage. But the real difference is in the price. When you purchase a Nokia Lumia 635 from AT&T, you have several choices.
The PiPO W4 is an ultra-budget tablet, the kind of tablet you’d expect to be running Android. But it’s not some less-than-worthy junker. It’s running Windows 8.1 - so there’s no way it’s not going to get done what you need to get done, right? We’ve run our fair share of low-cost tablets over the review bench.

After theNokia X, X+andXL, the Microsoft Devices team is back with its fourth Android-based budget smartphone dubbed the X2 Dual SIM, and the best part about it its €99 (about $135) off-contract price.

When you first heard that Nokia was going to make an Android phone, were you surprised? I bet you didn’t believe it. When Nokia actually make the Nokia X , we were as baffled as you were - and twice as baffled that they’d also made a larger version of the device in the Nokia XL .
