Windows 8.1 fall tablet roadmap includes 10-incher from Dell, Surface Mini, updated Acer W3 and more
Following what can be kindly described as a middling first wave of Windows 8 and RT-based tablets, most tech-savvy folks probably expected Microsoft and its partners to dial it up a notch come the fall of 2013. Or at least be a little wary about their prospects in a very competitive world.
Extra! Extra! Read all about it! After cheekily smiling to the camera several times, Nokia’s Lumia 1520, also known as “Bandit” (old habits die hard), has been slapped with a probable unveiling date just a few hours ago and now has even more details attached to its name.
Rumors over the last few weeks have indicated that Nokia is hard at work on a 10.1-inch Windows RT tablet. Today, technology bloggerPaul Thurrott published what could be the first image of the tablet.
Windows Phone 8.1 has oft been rumored to bring a dedicated notifications screen to the OS, and newly leaked images show off how Microsoft is implementing the notification center on the Start screen.
A dual SIM variant of the Nokia Lumia 720 might be on its way to market soon according to serial leakster evleaks, to kick off the dual SIM smartphone trend on Windows Phone 8.
A tweet by @evleaks mentions the Nokia will officially announce the 6-inch full-HD screened Lumia 1520 on September 26th. The Lumia 1520 is the first Windows Phone device to be launched in the phablet segment.
Though its mobile phone division has been acquired by Microsoft, Nokia’s CEO is looking forward to see what the next century might hold.
It’s become a sort of tradition for Apple’s competitors to try to detour media attention away from big iPhone or iPad unveilings through social media and commercials of all kinds. You can call it envy or you can call it solid PR. I like to call it humor.
Nokia’s Lumia 1520, expected to be the first phablet powered by Windows Phone 8, has been revealed in excruciating detail in a set of leaked photos.
A set of screenshots and videos have revealed all the new features and changes that Microsoft has included in the upcoming General Distribution Release 3 (GDR3) update to Windows Phone 8.
Aaand it’s out. The first clear, full shot of the Nokia Lumia 1520, that is, courtesy of the relentless serial leaker @evleaks.
Following a video Google released yesterday, which was simultaneously an ad for the upcoming Android 4.4 ‘KitKat’ and a good-humored parody of Apple’s Johnny Ive, Nokia’s German branch released a somewhat less subtle jab at Google on its Twitter account.
Seeing as Microsoft’s first-gen Surface tabs have been colossal sales duds (especially the one running Win RT) and Nokia, which is close to becoming Redmond’s property, is prepping a far superior slate with FHD screen and Snapdragon 800 CPU, you’d think the wisest call at this point would be the halting of the Surface project.
Windows Phone 8′s GDR3 update is slated to bring support for 1080p resolution displays, and a leaked screenshot shows how the Live Tile interface on the OS’ homescreen will be affected as a result.
Nokiasoft is now a thing with Microsoft’s takeover of Nokia’s Devices and Services unit.
Nokia might not look like a real threat for Samsung when it comes to minor things like, oh I don’t know, actual smartphone sales, but as far as advertising goes, the Finns look in much better, and perhaps more creative, shape than the Koreans of late.
One of the long standing nuisances of Windows Phone 8 might be resolved with the GDR3 update to the OS, which is expected to begin rolling out later this year.
Nokia’s upcoming 6-inch Windows Phone 8 device, codenamed ‘Bandit’, will be called the Lumia 1520 when it launches, according to the all-knowing evleaks.
Nokia’s Windows RT tablet is a reality whether people like it or not, and now, details on the specs of the device, codenamed Sirius, have surfaced online.
For technology enthusiasts, the mobile industry is a fascinating vertical to observe. Even in my relatively few years covering consumer electronics, I’ve already seen Microsoft go from ruling the smartphone space (briefly, and after an even briefer era of Palm dominance), to the unenviable position of (albeit well-funded) underdog — forced to claw its way
