Today during the D9 Conference, Microsoft showcased its next operating system – "Windows 8" (Next) designed to run on desktops, tablets and smartphones, with a radical new unified touch-friendly tile-based UI design.
Samsung's Galaxy Tab has been out on the market for a fairly long period time already, and needless to say it can be quite disheartening when the Korean OEM has been keeping its lips sealed as to whether its tablet will ever receive an upgrade path to a newer version of the Android operating system.
Mention the words 'tablet PC' to most consumers and chances are the mental image they will conjure about such a device is one that runs on ARM processors and comes preloaded with an operating system that is anything but Microsoft's Windows. While that may be true in the consumer space, it would appear that things
It is old news that the next version of the Android operating system will be known as Ice Cream Sandwich (hmm, yummy) and that it will supposedly be released to OEMs sometime in Q4 this year. But in spite of that, Google has somehow managed to push out an update for its tablet-centric build of
Remember Chrome Canary for Windows? You know, that highly experimental and unstable browser which Google was inviting Windows users to play around with, but only if they were ready to deal with the frequent issues that are bound to occur while using it? Well, it seems that Google is keen on attracting more guinea….I mean,
With almost every single smartphone out on the market today being designed in such a way that would appeal more to the ladies than the tough, macho-looking guys, talking about a smartphone catered exclusively for the fairer sex may be one of odder developments to take place in the smartphone market And yet, here we
Microsoft may have been in the spotlight for the wrong reasons recently with regards to the rate software updates were being delivered for its Windows Phone 7 platform, but it would appear that the Redmond giant is doing its best to put all of that behind it as soon as possible. And what better way
Okay, maybe equating a mundane device such as a tablet PC to the principle known as love might be stretching it a little bit, but it is quite hard to see it any other way, especially when the company responsible for marketing this little device has a name which makes a reference to the word
We have danced around the issue for quite some time, but nothing beats having the official word (or endorsement) to confirm (or deny) what we have already suspected. As it turns out, Google has unintentionally confirmed that the next Android release will go by the name of Ice Cream Sandwich after sending off an email
As we all already know, Microsoft is still the biggest company for PC operating systems, at least according to the amount of revenue it generates. A new study from Gartner Research reports that Microsoft had $23.848 billion in revenue from its OS business in 2010 which gave it a 78.6 percent share of the entire
Everyone knows that the size of its online app repository is one of the biggest factors that decides whether an operating system designed for use on a highly mobile, networked device such as a smartphone or slate PC will be able to hold its own against the likes of the competition currently available on the
Most die-hard traditionalists who swear by their notebook and desktop PCs will disagree wholeheartedly, but the truth is the rapid advancement of processor technology has resulted in what was formerly nothing more than a simple, low-powered telecommunications device evolving into the mobile computing tool of choice for many. And with smartphones now sporting hardware specifications
Think that the Optimus 2X is the only Korean Android-powered device to come bundled with an NVIDIA Tegra 2 system-on-a-chip (SoC)? Think again: yet another Android device is getting the Tegra 2 treatment, and it comes in the form of a tablet known as the Tabit, and produced by TriGem.
We have heard of various out-of-this-world claims made by the rumour mill when it comes to popular consumer electronic devices such as smartphones and tablets, but this particular one which has just come to our attention today is probably in a class of their own with regards to their credibility. That being said, does anybody fancy
Sure, the whole world has gone goo-goo-gah-gah over Android, iOS and to a slightly lesser extent, Windows Phone 7 when it comes to selecting a mobile OS of their choice for their new, shiny smartphone, and for good reason. However, there are also alternative mobile OSes out there to choose from, and Samsung's Bada is
Well, look at what we have got here. Apparently, AMD is starting to feel a little left out of the entire smartphone and tablet game, and has since taken steps to ensure that it does not lose out on too much of the rapidly shrinking pie while its rivals are busy churning out mobile-friendly products.
The second Tuesday of the month is soon upon us, and just as we had expected, Microsoft has published an advance notification of the security bulletins users can expect to receive for their operating systems when the time comes. And we got some news for you: this month's Patch Tuesday is not going to be
With iOS and Android wiping the floor where mobile operating systems are concerned, one might be tempted to think that there is little hope left for Microsoft's and its Windows 7 OS to carve out its own share of the mobile device pie. However, it appears that a Chinese OEM in Shenzhen does not share
With OS X Lion well on schedule for its eventual release, it will be of little surprise that the occasional screenshot leak of Apple's upcoming operating system will eventually start making its rounds around the depths on cyverspace. Indeed, the latest leaks seem to indicate that certain features in Lion will now be presented in
