xiaomi mi4 en Microsoft and Xiaomi discussing Windows smartphone?
Last week Microsoft CEO Satya Nadella met with Xiaomi chief Lei Jun and it is being widely reported that the two discussed the possibility of the Chinese company building a Windows Phone handset. Before going any further, it should be noted that this is pure rumor at this point and the only fact is that the two held a meeting together. However, sources are claiming that a Windows based smartphone was on the agenda.

It would be a coup for Microsoft to get Xiaomi building on its platform, which is a startling turn of events. Microsoft is one of the biggest companies in the world, but at this point in time it needs Xiaomi far more than Xiaomi needs Windows Phone. In fact, there are some even saying that Xiaomi would be mad to team up with Windows this early and should wait to see if Microsoft’s platform continues to grow.

However, there is little doubt that the deal would be big news for Microsoft as the company will have one of the biggest smartphone companies on its platform. Xiaomi has come from nowhere to be one of the largest smartphone makers in the world. Founded in 2010, the Chinese company has emerged to be the third best-selling handset maker behind Apple and of course Samsung. Xiaomi’s model of making solidly spec’d devices and selling them for low prices with virtually no profit margin has been successful, and has stolen market share from Samsung and has the Korean company worried.

So, it is easy to see why Microsoft would want Xiaomi building on the Windows Phone platform, the company is essentially a gateway to success in emerging markets. Whether this meeting will eventually result in Windows Phone device remains to be seen, but it is fairly obvious that the two CEO’s had something to discuss when the linked up.

96465 motorola bing droid Microsoft renames Bing apps as MSN
Microsoft has made some changes to its Bing suite of apps, giving them a professional new name that falls under the MSN branding. The company has changed all Bing apps, although the original Bing Search will stay as it is. It is thought that Microsoft sees the MSN branding as more serious as it looks to entice users to its suite of applications.

The new MSN (Microsoft Network) apps are available across form factors so you can catch them on mobile devices or PCs. MSN has been around for years now, so I imagine users will identify with the brand much more than they would Bing. Microsoft has also confirmed that the apps will be available on rival mobile platforms Android and iOS.

The features of the applications stays the same and indeed the only difference is the new MSN branding and the fact the “Finance” app has been renamed as “Money”. Microsoft said the following:
With today's updates, these apps will now have one unified and consistent Azure-powered experience across all these devices to MSN in the cloud. These apps will now be branded to reflect their alignment to the MSN premium experience for content as well as personal productivity features. Bing will continue to provide search and intelligent experiences such as powering Cortana.
As I mentioned, changes are minimal, but there are some:

As part of today's updates, the Health & Fitness and Weather apps now make it easy to access information from these apps right on the Lock screen of your Windows Phone. Now at quick glance, you will be able to see the latest weather from the Weather app right on your Lock screen. And if you have a Nokia Lumia 1520, 635, or 630 smartphone, you will now be able to keep track of steps taken via the pedometer and GPS tracker in the Health & Fitness app also right on your Lock screen. You don’t need to unlock your phone and launch the individual apps!

The applications changed to MSN are Food & Drink, Health & Fitness, Money, News, Sport, Translator, Travel, and Weather.

Nokia Lumia 530 Dual SIM hero jpg 500x250 Nokia Lumia 530 Coming to T Mobile for only $69 No ContractOne of T-Mobile's core principles is value.  They pride themselves on giving you more for your money and if the latest rumor is true this will continue in about two weeks when the Nokia Lumia 530 lands as a pre-paid device for only $69!   This is pretty shocking considering they charged $149 for the Nokia Lumia 521 while ATT was charging only $99 for twin the Lumia 520.

Sure this device is cheap you say what about the specs? Could I use it on a day to day basis and not want to throw it against the wall?

  • 1.2GHz quad-core Qualcomm Snapdragon processor
  • 4-inch LCD display
  • 512mb of RAM
  • expandable up to 128GB
  • 5-megapixel camera
  • 129 Grams
  • 1430Mah battery
  • Windows Phone 8.1

While this device is not a powerhouse by any stretch it will run Windows Phone just fine and it will run it smoothly.  It is expected to only be sold in white by T-Mobile however at $69 a you will have enough money left over to buy a case or even a new back plate for it if you want.

page wp81 start Windows Phone 8.1 adoption reaches 50%
Windows Phone could still be considered a growing platform. It certainly has the figures to back up that statement, finding traction in some markets while struggling others. What is not up for dispute anymore is the fact that Windows Phone is now the third largest smartphone and mobile platform, behind Android in number 1 and iOS in number 2. Today Microsoft announced that 50% of all people who can download Windows Phone 8.1 have done so.

That is a number the company can be proud of. Windows Phone 8.1 has been around since July 15th but has been slowly moving to new regions, so a 50% adoption rate is a solid return. Sure, it won’t match the rapid adoption Apple is enjoying and will continue to do so with iOS 8, but the WP 8.1 statistic does better Android 4.4 KitKat. The latest Android version has taken 10 months to reach adoption levels of 25%, albeit across an admittedly more fragmented ecosystem.

There are still over 40% still not updating though, even if they can. Perhaps that is because they are in emerging markets where Wi-Fi connections are not always solid, or possibly some of them are those people who do not update their devices, or just hit back or cancelled when notified about the patch. Either way, that is all speculation, but Microsoft will be hoping more of those people join up to Windows Phone 8.1.

Nexus 6 Leak Motorola built Nexus 6 leaks in best quality yet
We have heard a lot about the Nexus 6 over the last week. Is it the Motorola Shamu, is it a re-tooled Moto X, is it not the Nexus 6, and is it actually just a new Motorola phablet? These are just some of the questions from the last seven days, but we are finally starting to get some clearer answers thanks to Android Police. The guys have found out some more information about the specs and have also uncovered a render of the handset, so let’s start answering those questions.

Is this the Motorola Shamu?
Yes, this is likely to be the high end Motorola device that has been discussed for several months. While earlier rumors suggested Shamu and the Nexus 6 were not the same, it now seems more likely that they indeed are.

Is the Nexus 6 a re-tooled Moto X?
Yes and no is the short answer, but let me elaborate. I wrote last week when a mock up image of the Nexus 6 arrived online that there were too many calling cards from the Moto X, such as a round M logo indent. However, the render above now shows that aesthetically the Nexus 6 tones down on the Moto X pastiche by making the silver forward facing speakers black and by shuffling around the buttons a bit. There is also the not so small fact that this handset is bigger than the X.

Under the hood, the Nexus 6 takes the specs of the Moto X and improves them in most aspects. For example, there is a Quad HD screen (5.92-inch) instead of a 1080p panel (5.2-inch on the Moto X), while the Qualcomm Snapdragon has been bumped from an 801 to an 805, with 3GB of RAM. Elsewhere there is a 13 megapixel snapper with all the trimmings we have become used to on flagships, while there is also a 2 megapixel front facer. Keeping things ticking along will be a 3200+ mAh juicer.

So, this does have the Moto X to work off, but seems to be a different enough handset for consumers to know the difference.

Is this the Nexus 6 or another Moto product such as a phablet?

Last week I would have been inclined to say that this handset is a Motorola device and not a Google Nexus, but now I have a different view. From what we see in this render, the handset looks distinctly Nexus with its rather dull all black design, while that is clearly stock Android L on the screen. It does seem as though this is the Nexus 6 and that it will be Google’s most advanced smartphone to date.

It will also be a departure for the Nexus range in a number of ways. Firstly, it is comfortably the largest Nexus phone there has been and secondly it seems to not want to compromise like earlier handsets. The Nexus 4 and Nexus 5 lacked some core flagship specs to keep them as affordable handsets, but everything here appears to be from the top shelf. What will that do to the price? You can find out when the Nexus 6 launches on October 16th.

Passport Black Front Blackberry Passport is a hit, sells out in hours
The Blackberry Passport may go down as the surprise of the year. The Canadian company has been slipping away in terms of hardware and many suspected the latest smartphone would flop as others had over the last two years. However, Blackberry insisted that the Passport was something different before launch and when the company rolled it out last week that proved to be the case.

This is a device that does everything Blackberry’s target audience wants. And it is very important to keep in mind that Blackberry did have a target for this handset, this is not an iPhone or a Galaxy S that is made for everyone. Sure, you can use the Passport as any other smartphone, but there is no doubt that Blackberry made this for its existing customers and the ones who left the company but want to return. This was made for enterprise and it is a niche device.

With that in mind Blackberry has hit a home run with the Passport, with the company announcing today that the device has been a success. BB CEO John Chen announced that the Passport sold out in six hours from its official website and that it achieved the same from Amazon in ten hours. That amounts to 200,000 in unit sales.

Yes, that is not a staggering number like the 10 million units the iPhone 6/6 Plus sold last week, but remember this is not that kind of handset. Blackberry sold out its inventory and it is reasonable to assume that more devices would have been sold had they been available. So, will the Passport become a sales monster and will it help drive Blackberry back to profitability, a goal the company hopes to achieve by the end of next year?

In terms of being a sales monster, the Passport is unlikely to become a genuine best seller like the LG G3 for example, but it is probably going to be a slow burner that keeps selling well for a long time. It is easily Blackberry’s most appealing smartphone for a long time and has had good reviews, so it is likely to find a solid audience.

Getting the company back to profitability is another matter, but considering Chen said in April only 10 million smartphone sales were needed to turn profit from hardware sales, we assume the Passport will be a big help in reaching that magic number.

Windows 9 Windows 9 will be free for Windows 8 users
What’s this, a mobile-centric website bringing you news of a fully-fledged PC operating system… has the tech world tipped upside down? However, Windows these days is of course an operating system that crosses many form factors, so when Windows 9 arrives it will do so for computers, smartphones, tablets, and who knows by then but possibly wearables too.

Reports around the launch of Windows 9 are gathering pace with most saying that the new platform will at least be unveiled during Microsoft’s Build conference in April 2015. Apparently the company cannot wait to roll the OS out as it looks to rekindle interest in its core product after the disappointment of Windows 8.

Windows 8 launched two years ago and was poorly received by consumers and critics, who often ridiculed its overhaul to a touch oriented interface. Windows 8.1 improved matters a slot, but for the most part the damage had been done. The PC market is currently rebounding slightly, but Windows is not the reason for that, with Mac and Chromebook sales accounting for the bounce instead.
Microsoft wants to roll Windows 9 out to counter that and a report today says that every current user of Windows 8/8.1 will be able to upgrade to Windows 9 for free.

"U.S. consumer retail PC sales grew almost 3 percent during the 10 week Back-to-School period (week of July 4th through Labor Day week) after declining by 2.5 percent in the previous year," writes NPD. "Apple and Chrome OS led the sales drive with Chrome OS unit sales increasing 37 percent over 2013 and Mac OS-based products up 14 percent. Windows devices declined 3 percent."

Considering many Windows 7 users held off upgrading to Windows 8, I would have liked to have seen that version included for a free bump too, but alas it is not. Hopefully Microsoft can get more things right this time and offer an experience for PC users and indeed mobile users that works for both despite being on the same ecosystem.

Of course, as Windows is a multi-form factor OS these days, any announcement of a full new version will likely be followed either in tandem or shortly after by news of a brand new Mobile version too.

background panorama 1 500x292 Rumor: HTC One M8 Eye with 13mp Camera Coming

Let's start this post by saying the HTC One M8 is a fantastic device; it's build, the way it feels in your hand, the battery life, the processor, etc. However, where this device falls short is the camera. When I was testing the HTC One M8 for Windows the 4mp "UltraPixel" failed to impress, sure you can take some good pictures but with the likes of 13mp cameras on the Samsung devices and the 41mp/20mp camera on the Nokia devices, the 4mp UltraPixel isn't good enough on a flagship device. Rumor has it HTC is about to change that all with the HTC One M8 Eye.

twiteye 500x207 Rumor: HTC One M8 Eye with 13mp Camera ComingThe HTC One M8 Eye is rumored to have a 13mp Duo camera just like the HTC Butterfly 2. This move would make sense since the UltraPixel does not go well in the spec game with consumers. I personally have three people in my family that have a HTC One and none of them are proud of the camera on the device.

What do you think about this rumor? In a world where specs sell I don't really think HTC could afford to let the competition get so far ahead of them in the camera wars. Consumers these days expect to leave their point and shoot digital at home (if they even still have one) and have their smartphone do all the heavy lifting for them.

fifthavenue gallery image1 Microsoft opens Apple rival flagship store in New York
Microsoft is ramping up its retail ambitions and has opened a new flagship store in New York City, and it happens to be on the same street as Apple’s showpiece space. I doubt that Microsoft’s place on Fifth Avenue will match up to Apple’s famous glass cube (image) on the same street, but it will give the company a showpiece space in the city.

Interestingly, there is a legitimate question to ask as to how Microsoft even keeps its retail stores open, do they really do that well? This is not a company renowned for big selling hardware like Apple or Samsung. Sure, Microsoft has its own hardware lines such as Lumia smartphones, Surface tablets, and Xbox games consoles.

However, the company now has 109 retail locations around the United States, and if I am honest Lumia devices or Surface tablets do not sell in the country. Of course, these stores sell other products such as third party Windows PC tech and Windows tablets, but even so, how does Microsoft maintain 109 locations?

"As our first flagship store, it will serve as the centerpiece of our Microsoft Stores experience," said David Porter, corporate vice president for Microsoft retail stores. "This is a goal we've had since day one - we were only waiting for the right location. And now we have it."

blackberry passporti Blackberry rebounding as losses fall
Blackberry has trodden a rocky road over the last few years, moving quickly from being one of the big brands in the smartphone world to almost going bust. 2013 was annus horribilis for the company, but during 2014 the company has been speaking in more positive terms and saying it can recover. The numbers are starting to back that up as while Blackberry is still making a loss, those losses have in fact tumbled considerably and the company is being bullish about its future.

Analysts predicted second quarter losses of $400 million or more (some less, depending on the source), but the general consensus was that Blackberry would tank again. However, the company managed to record a loss of $207 million for its second quarter instead. It goes without saying that 207 million is still a huge number, but it has beaten analyst predictions by a huge margin, while it is infinitely better than the devastating $965 million loss recorded this time last year, a number that almost killed the company.

Now the Canadian company is predicting it can get back to profitability by the end of the fiscal year 2015, a very bold claim. Issues still remain and it is clear that somehow Blackberry will have to sell more devices if it is to meet its goals. The company’s market share has dwindled in 2014 and most compilers do not even bother naming Blackberry when making market share charts. The brand formerly known as RIM faces a problem where people are buying legacy QWERTY devices before they buy new touchscreen models.

There is no doubt that eventually people will abandon Blackberry altogether and stop buying even the older handsets if the company continued as it has been. Luckily though, the new Passport smartphone is here and is generating some heat, hardly a common thing among Blackberry handsets these days. The device is seen as the Passport (pun intended) to profitability for the company, and the good thing is Blackberry does not really need to shift many devices to get there.

CEO John Chen stated in April that the company only needed to sell 10 million units per year to make profit on hardware sales alone. If the Passport can hit the ground running and become a hit, Blackberry may be seeing those losses tumble further in the coming months.

Xperia Z3 Compact press photos1 Sony’s Xperia Z3 unboxed underwater
Sony launched the Xperia Z3 and Z3 Compact back at the beginning of September while at the IFA trade show in Berlin. However, the company has avoided rolling out the devices properly and will start doing so during October, with the handsets available for pre-order in most countries. Sony will even launch the X3 range in the US and will be celebrating the launch with a special event in a couple of week’s time.

It is around this time that we start seeing the reviews of smartphones and of course the unboxing videos from eager fans unwrapping their new Xperia Z3. Carphone Warehouse, one of the UK’s big smartphone retailers has put a novel spin on the good old unboxing by playing to one of Sony’s big calling cards, waterproofing.

Just about every high end Xperia devise comes with water and dustproofing these days and the Z3 is the most advanced yet, rated at IP68. So, those clever fellows at Carphone Warehouse decided to test this by unboxing an Xperia Z3 underwater, and you can see how they got on in the video below. The retailer recently announced that it was selling the Xperia Z3 for over $100 cheaper than the sticker price through the pre-order period that ends October 10th.

The Xperia Z3 features a 5.2-inch 1080p display, 2.5GHz Snapdragon 801 processor, 3GB of RAM, 16GB of internal storage, a 20.7-megapixel camera with auto focus and a 3,100mAh battery pack. Check out the video below:

matter 500x281 Do Phone Designs Even Matter Anymore?Since bendgate started last week on the new iPhone I have heard one thing over and over and over again from almost everyone. "Who cares, you are just going to case it up anyway and will solve that issue". That's pretty much a true story with every device you buy these days, not the bending part but the casing up part so the thing is.... does the phone design really make a difference?

otterbox 388x375 Do Phone Designs Even Matter Anymore?I am not talking Boom Sound speakers, 41mp cameras, finger printer scanners, etc... I am talking about the design itself.   Most devices are now slab style with a 4.7 inch to a 6 inch screen within millimeters of the same thickness and very thin bezels. Almost all of them will be cased up in some fashion and it will kill the hours upon hours spent making the device that tenth of a millimeter thinner or curving the phone just right so it sits in your hand. Even the best crafted hardware of the past year, the HTC One, turns into a random brick when it is truly cased up and protected.

So the real question is does anyone out there care if their phone is "the thinnest" or has the smallest bezel? Does it really matter anymore? Ninety-five percent of these devices will be cased up and the true design of the phone never sees the light of day. Is your phones new fashion statement really the case? I honestly think it is. Here's my call out to OEM's, either make your phones so they don't need a case or craft a case that keeps your phones feel and design to give away with the purchase of your $900 product.

sony xperia z3 Sony event scheduled for October 9th
Sony is holding a special event in New York City on October 9th, but the Japanese company is unlikely to be rolling out a new product. Instead, the “In Demand” event is more likely a platform for the company to launch its new Xperia Z3 and Xperia Z3 Compact flagship smartphones in the United States. The nature of the event certainly points to that.

The event will not be available on a live stream, it will be closed and will be hosted by some Sony executives. The blurb with the invite suggests that the company is going to discuss wider US strategy besides confirming the dates, carriers, and prices for its new handsets in the country. That’s a good thing because Sony is known to pay little attention to the US, something the company wants to change.

Sony said recently that it is refocusing its smartphone business to build less low end devices and focus on premium handsets instead. The US market will prove pivotal if the company is going to gain more traction in the market, and perhaps for the first time Sony is taking it seriously. Previous flagships have often arrived months after they have been launched in other regions, but Sony has already said the Z3’s will land in the country during the same roll out window as other countries.

Which carriers will play host to these handsets is not yet known, although T-Mobile has said it will have the Xperia Z3. We hope Sony will clear some of these things up during the event and will certainly be on hand to bring you all the news as it unfolds.

The Xperia Z3 and Z3 Compact were launched at IFA in Berlin at the beginning of the month, and recently battery tests have showed that both have among the best power packs currently available in a smartphone.

shamufinal22 Is this the Nexus 6 or Moto X Plus?
We have been hearing plenty about the Nexus 6 over recent weeks and also about a Motorola handset that is being developed with the codename Shamu. We have heard all kinds of reports on both devices, but today 9to5Google has dug up some quality information that leads them to think that Shamu and the Nexus 6 are the same device. I am not sure about that and I will tell you why shortly, but first let’s look at what 9to5 did find.

Whatever this device turns out to be, I tip my hat to the guys and gals at 9to5Google for laying down some cool information about it. The website has the inside track on this smartphone, so much so that they have crafted an in house mock-up of the casing based off the real handset. As you can see in the main image, the device in question carries much of the design hallmarks of the current 2014 Moto X that was released a couple of weeks ago, complete with metal strip forward facing speakers.

There are some subtle differences, such as volume button placement, but for the most part this is very much a Moto X lookalike. According to the source, this is the Nexus 6 and will boast a bevy of amazing top shelf specs, including a 5.92-inch 2560 x 1440 Quad HD screen, 498ppi, a 2.7GHz Qualcomm Snapdragon 805 with 3GB of RAM, a 13 megapixel rear camera and a 3 megapixel front facer. There will also be a 3,200 mAh and the device will of course be the first to run Android L with 32GB of on board storage.

However, I actually think that this is a new Motorola phablet and not the Nexus 6 at all, and there are a number of reasons why I think that. Firstly, that design is pure Moto X and the mock up even shows the round circle where the Motorola M logo is placed. Why would Google want a Nexus handset that is so close in aesthetics to the Moto X (even if it is bigger)? Surely Mountain View wants a design that differentiates its own smartphone range, much like the way the LG made Nexus 4 and 5 looked different to other LG handsets.

To be fair, 9to5Google says that this is not a locked in design, but so close to launch (the Nexus 6 is said to launching mid-October) it seems unlikely that the companies have not finalized a design. There is also the small issue that these specs do not match up to those previously reported for the Nexus 6, a device that is said to have a 5.2-inch QHD screen and a 12MP rear camera. Sure, rumoured specs change as we learn more about devices, but considering there have been plenty of rumors about a large phablet version of the Moto X, it seems more likely that this 5.9-inch monster is that handset.
