Nokia’s Lumia 610 doesn’t have the slick unibody casing of the 800 or the huge screen of the 900, but it does have a bargain price tag. Pushing Windows Phone to a new price point – and into fresh markets – the fourth Lumia takes advantage of Microsoft’s new, pared-back minimum hardware specifications with just 256MB of [...]
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.
IFA 2015 is traditionally the time when many companies announce their wares to a captive audience, both physical and virtual. There now seems to be a trend, however, of some of those opting to go ahead, perhaps to avoid clashing with other giants.
Just a while ago we looked into the reasons why it wouldn't be in Microsoft 's best interests to suddenly switch to Android as its mobile platform. And then head honcho Satya Nadella dropped the huge bombshell . Microsoft has, for all intents and purposes, stricken off Nokia from its books. This has lead many to conclude Microsoft's surrender in the smartphone market.
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.
Microsoft has launched a new Lumia smartphone that is aiming directly at users who need a device that will support dual SIM cards on a budget. The smartphone is called the Lumia 430 Dual SIM and it will be available for $70. The low price makes this device the most affordable Lumia smartphone offered so far. The Lumia 430 runs Windows Phone 8.1 with the Lumia Denim update.
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.
Although Microsoft is in a celebratory mood over the imminent release of Windows 10 , the topic of Windows 10 smartphones remains to be a sore point. And it isn't just because of the company's somewhat indecisive, almost ambiguous, attitude towards this section of mobile, but even more because it lacks such a Wndows phone that it can truly be proud of.
As of the publishing of this article, Pebble Time will have beaten its goal nearly twice over in its first hour being online. This Kickstarter project mirrors the original Pebble release, this time coming with a device with a color display and three unique color options for the device's border and band.
Even though I’m the Gadgeteer, I don’t upgrade my personal phoneevery few months like some people might expect. I’m still using the LG G3 that I purchased last August. That means that in a few short weeks that I’ll have been using the same phone for an entire year.
LONDON — How much computer can you buy for just $35?For fans of Raspberry Pi, a British-made computer aimed at children, hobbyists and tinkerers, the answer is quite a lot.On Monday, the British charity behind the minicomputer announced a new version that was significantly more powerful that the previous device, which had sold more than four million units since being introduced in 2012.
It's hard to stay connected to the internet when you are on the go in your home country; it's even harder if you travel around the world for business or pleasure. 4G service requires different frequencies to work depending on what country you are in and some normal 4G modems or hotspots won't work everywhere.
Goodbye iPhoto, hello Photos. Apple has revealed a new, cloud-centric photo management and editing app for OS X Yosemite , recognizing the changing ways people take and organize photos, and the rise of the smartphone camera. Built completely afresh, Photos is set to be baked into OS X Yosemite 10.10.3, due for release this spring, but will be offered in the developer build from today.
Remember the OnePlus One ? You most likely can't forget it, if not for the tons of news and sometimes controversy surrounding it, then for its sweet features and the equally sweet price tag. The invite-only system, however, is pretty much the proverbial wart on the OnePlus One's face.
Councilman David G. Greenfield introduced a bill that would cap surge pricing in New York City at 100% the normal rates.But, these politicians are wrong to try to ban and further cap surge pricing.Uber's surge pricing feature is great for the company's business, since Uber keeps a fixed percent of fares. When Uber's surge price multiplier kicks in, Uber makes more money.
