I keep getting the error, "The update was downloaded, but couldn't be opened. (8018830f)". I've rebooted more times than I can count. I have a Lumia 1520.

I hope that there's an equivalent Windows Metro app that syncs with the Windows Phone app. I'd love a Windows desktop app, too, but that's probably too much to ask for.

Thursday night, I discovered that Driving Mode also prevents me from using my camera while walking. That was the last straw. I had reset my phone and now it's back to normal. I don't know if my...

I turned on Driving Mode yesterday, and ever since then, I am no longer able to listen to podcasts in Music+Video, or run Pandora and Netflx. Music+Video gives me a 803a0000 error code and Netflix...

Search was broken this morning. I was trying to find the original e-mail Microsoft sent me when I first purchased Windows 8 a year. Searching for product key returned no hits. Even searching...

Is it just me, or is Nokia doing a better job pushing the WP platform forward than Microsoft?

Doesn't Secret Santa mean that they're identity is a *secret*?

While I agree that today's hardware buttons are far too easy to hit by mistake, especially the Search button, why would an on-screen button be any different?

Wednesday, December 11, 2013 - 9:00pm

In addition to the Start Menu, I'd love to see MS bring back the Aero glass effects (including Aero peek). Any news on that?

"rabid and irrational hatred"

Wow. I bet you don't seen the irony of that post.

Monday, December 9, 2013 - 6:44pm

This is good news, I guess, but I really wish MS would focus more on improving the desktop, rather than simply undoing the mistakes of Windows 8. Other than a better task manager and faster boots...

I can run Excel and Word on my Chromebook and I only paid $170 for it. However, I am considering getting a Windows laptop so I can establish a VPN and remote desktop to my computer at work....

I'm going to have to disagree with Paul regarding the 1520's size. I bought a 1520 on Friday and it fits just fine in the front pocket of my pants. I was worried that it wouldn't fit, but it...

Thursday, November 21, 2013 - 6:43pm

Yes, thank you jimbie882. There's no reason why MS can't and shouldn't have multiple lines of tablets to appeal to different users. Honda, for example, has multiple lines Civic, Accord, Fit, CR-...

When you do the full review, it would be helpful to include a comparison with the iPad Air instead of just the Surface RT 2.

Wednesday, November 20, 2013 - 2:57pm

Could this have anything to do with the screen type? The 1020 has an AMOLED screen and the 1520 has an LCD screen.

Wednesday, November 20, 2013 - 10:07am

Has Nokia announced a price? Will it be available for Friday's launch?

Tuesday, November 19, 2013 - 1:44pm

What does the new on-screen virtual keyboard look like? The PS3's virtual keyboard is the worst.

Monday, November 18, 2013 - 5:20pm

Agh! I just dropped my Lumia 900 and cracked the screen. Maybe I will get the 1520 after all. Still, I wish it was smaller 5-5.5" screen and AMOLED.

Saturday, November 16, 2013 - 2:29pm

Also, keep in mind that the 7th generation isn't done yet. Sony, Microsoft and Nintendo will keep selling their PS3, XBox 360 and Wii for at least a couple more years.

Regarding market...

Friday, November 15, 2013 - 5:15pm

It's in the article text, but it's missing in the list of systems and their sales.

Friday, November 8, 2013 - 8:47pm

I set up my Win8 PC a year ago. It's too late to change that now. Until MS fixes this issue, there's no way for me to upgrade to Win8.1 without reinstalling everything from scratch. Fortunately...

Thursday, November 7, 2013 - 6:28pm

I can't upgrade to Windows 8.1. Windows 8.1 won't install on systems that have their Users or Programs directories on a different drive than the OS.

Thursday, November 7, 2013 - 3:23pm

What about IE11 for Windows 8.0?

Friday, November 1, 2013 - 8:45am

Huh? What? Are you honestly saying that standard definition DVDs look almost as good as 1080P Blurays? That's insane. The difference is immediate and obvious.

Wednesday, October 30, 2013 - 2:12pm

Unfortunately, this is still a 3x heavier than the iPad Air. I'm not sure who would want this device beyond hard-core geeks who must possess as many gadgets as possible.

Wednesday, October 23, 2013 - 9:45pm

This makes perfect sense. After all, nobody even uses the desktop anymore and WinRT tablets are flying off the shelves.

Tuesday, October 22, 2013 - 1:45pm

I'm confused by the new Wireless Charging Plate DC-50. Shouldn't the 520 be compatible with existing charging plates? Why do we need another one? Or does the 1520 only work with the DC-50?

Tuesday, October 22, 2013 - 12:54pm

I was really excited by this device and was seriously thinking of replacing my 900 with this. However, I'm very disappointed that it's using an LCD instead of AMOLED. There's a huge difference...

Monday, October 21, 2013 - 9:00am

You know, I've been wondering, why doesn't MS just *always* offer recovery partitions for Windows online? It's going to require a valid registration key anyway, so why not just always make them...
