Actually, I have the Asus MemoPad 176 - it has a 7" IPS screen @ 1280x800, Intel 3745 (quad core 1.33/Turbo 1.86), 1 GB RAM, 16 GB storage, micro SD expansion up to 64 GB, Front facing 1.3 MP and...

I would love to see a CDMA/LTE Verizon version of the 630 in the US to use as a backup/secondary phone. My last backup (a GS3) took a tumble to the tile floor and the screen shattered. I put a...

The Lumia 830 still seems to be overpriced relative to its specifications. And while I realize the usual "WP8 doesn't need high specs" argument there are a number of areas where the higher specs...

Paul, you are falling into a trap that I've seen lately - WP doesn't require much resources and therefore doesn't need high end hardware. You should know better - there are lots of PCs running...

The problem is most Windows Phone aficionados (See WPCentral.com) are only recommending Nokia phones because they have had most support. WP cannot succeed with MS/Nokia being the only producer of...

I know it's been talked about but MS really needs to consider offering Windows upgrades for free (I can't imagine there is much revenue from people actually upgrading from Windows 7 to Windows 8 (...

Take a look at the Outlook web app in Chrome. You can pin it to your taskbar, open it up and you don't even know you're in Chrome since it can load in full screen mode, and there are no adds and...

Actually, you don't need MS Office to back up all your files to the cloud. You just need to set your program to save your files in the OneDrive or Google Drive folder and you're set to go. While...

It's real hard to see how more vendors making Windows Phones handsets will have much of an impact on the US Market UNLESS they are sold by the carriers. So far, the only new Windows Phone handset...

Right now, all their budget phones - Moto G ($49), Lumia 521 ($49), and Lumia 630 ($49) are all out of stock.

Tuesday, August 5, 2014 - 19:32

No, he wrote it correctly. Verizon is going to get another (Icon) high end Windows 8 phone as an exclusive. Pretty sad that HTC is falling into the same "exclusive" trap as MS/Nokia. Think...

Also, I don't put any security on any of home based devices (tablets, extra phones w/o a sim (Nokia 520)) as I have bigger problems if someone breaks the physical security of my house than whether...

Have to agree on the 512 MB vs 1 GB on the handset. While I really like the value of the the 520 there is a noticeable delay when waking it up (2-3" resuming) or when switching apps. If the Moto...

Even after the bump it still looks like it is trailing Sony every month so that 2-3 million unit deficit is getting larger every month, not smaller. I would still love to see an XBox set top box...

Saturday, July 12, 2014 - 20:19

Paul, if the numbers you are reporting are correct (and the 5 million Windows Phones Handsets is correct and the highest to date) that must mean that there are only around 15 - 20 million Windows...

Friday, July 11, 2014 - 19:08

Paul, it's amazing to me that WP fans love to talk about Android fragmentation and ignore WP fragmentation with 7.8 (no compatibility with 8.0+ apps and starting to lose support from developers...

Tuesday, July 8, 2014 - 23:18

It's really hard to see what would "jump start" further growthin market share for Windows Phone now that is a "mature" platform and still has only 3-4% share in the USA (while it has double digit...

Office is still not compelling @ $70/year. $2/month for 1 TB is if I needed that much.

Thursday, June 19, 2014 - 17:51

I think people are starting to become more wary of Ecosystem lock in and Amazon is starting to look that way also.

Thursday, June 19, 2014 - 17:47

Even @ $70/year I still believe Office is overkill for most individuals since (if you need it) you can get Office Home and Business for $130 and you make it up in only 2 years. As for continuous...

Monday, June 16, 2014 - 19:41

It's still hard to believe they released a (supposed) media centered gaming system that doesn't include the ability to stream from a Windows 7/8 PC or Windows Home Server. It should have been easy...

Monday, June 16, 2014 - 19:37

First impression is a 64 GB device with only 28.2 free out of the box - obviously no 32 GB device is planned. All of these devices sure look like they will take off with Broadwell as Bay Trail is...

Maybe I missed something but the Schizophrenia of Windows 8 continues. I had to go into the Windows Store (which I never do as a desktop user) in order to find the Windows 8.1 update. It was 3.6...

I know UEFI is supposed to make for a more secure environment but so far it has been a bear trying to change hard drives from traditional to an SSD. My cloning software (various - all worked well...

I believe this will be an excellent competitor in the touchscreen ultrabook category but really is too big/heavy to replace a 7-8" tablet that is only going to weigh 3/4 lb. I would bet that most...

Sunday, June 1, 2014 - 18:21

While it could theoretically replace a tablet why would you forgo a 7" talbet that only weighs 12 oz - it sure seems like cutting your nose off to spite your face. People who own this are still...

Thursday, May 29, 2014 - 15:20

IT seems like the biggest question is will people "move up" to a higher end Windows Phone from the Lumia 520. Because in the long run I think MS wants to make money on its Nokia handset business...

Tuesday, May 27, 2014 - 18:40

While it is lighter it is still not light or small enough to compete with the tablets (either iPad Air (9.7") @ 1.0 lbs, iPad Mini (7.9") or the various 7-8" Android Tablets (Nexus 7/.75 lbs or LG...

Monday, May 26, 2014 - 19:10

It's obvious they don't want to sell a "low end" Surface Pro 3 because the lack of options for the i3 is disappointing. My sweet spot would be a core i3, 128 GB SSD and 8 GB of RAM for $899 or $...

Friday, May 23, 2014 - 18:35

I think most people carrying this device will still have a 7 or 8" tablet along for reading so it really doesn't eliminate a device - just make this a lighter ultrabook. I believe most people...
