From a friend that is a trusted Verizon source (corporate sales force), I've been told to expect much fewer delays going forward. The primary issues behind the delays were the functionality of...

Bet you're disappointed it's not in SF again. How depressing will it be to go to Redmond and realize you aren't staying in a questionable hotel in the bad part of town?

Another amazing value. Maybe not the highest quality, but hard to complain at that price point.

Anecdotal, but I continue to hear from a lot of friends that are either buying an...

Bing will be successful as a backend. They already are growing the mobile search, but the point of Bing is not to own search. Long term, it's to use machine learning to power more productive ad...

Problem is the distribution rights in other countries are different. It's hard to do something internationally and make it the same. Would be nice if they rolled out a Canadian and European...

This is a note for Music Pass streamers. Some albums only give you all the tracks if you buy the whole album. It's not odd for a hot single on a new album or a popular catalog song to require an...

I fully understand. As a VZW customer, their support for all platforms is spotty. The nice benefit of WP over Android right now is the Developer Preview program. I could update an Android phone...

Just wish they would have gotten the 830s pricing right. If it could have landed around $350-400, it would have been a nice price for the equipment.

Frankly, it's not a bad idea for MS...

Is it possible that MS has abandoned the flagship for a time to also allow HTC to carry the top end of the market with the One M8? It's now on VZW, T-Mobile, and AT&T. Maybe MS gave an...

Office was on Windows tablets before it was on any other tablet. They even did a version for RT. Sure, the fully touch centric version is not there - but why does that matter? Can iPad or...

Should make it easy to integrate DropBox into OneDrive after they devalue the brand enough to buy them up on the cheap and get all the DropBox users into the MS ecosystem by including Office 365...

Fascinating thing is going to an Apple fan site and reading several people say something along the lines of: "This is what I wanted Apple Watch to be. I wonder if they could get it to work with...

Isn't one of them touch enabled? Isn't that the 13" model? And weren't the original specs with an AMD chip? Nice pick up for Intel.

Unlimited OneDrive storage for a year included. $25...

Google Apps are terrible and no one uses them. Even in schools, the percentages are low. Many institutions are now buying subscriptions to Office 365. Several local school districts here in...

If not for that 1GB of RAM, it looks like a Venue 8 Pro with a keyboard and bigger screen. The Venue 8 Pro's Atom processor is just fine for most tasks. Not using Photoshop on it, but it run...

Chromebooks will likely get killed with cheap laptops coming that can do more. As for Android, take a look at Samsung's declining margins. Windows on Phone offers better margins for OEMs. No...

Continuum is not in the Technical Preview nor are many of any upgraded Touch features that will come with Windows 10. That's a part of the consumer story that they have said will come later....

Yes and no on the 635. The 635 has a bigger and better ClearBlack screen. It has a faster processor and more internal storage. The 635 also features LTE.

That said, the WIN JR has a...

Paul, I just want to thank you for your reviews and thoughts on products. I know you are about as objective as is possible and always explain your own views or desires with devices. It's why I...

Best news is the Paperwhite is now cheaper. Had though about replacing my old base Kindle with one and now the price is easily justifiable.

Tuesday, September 9, 2014 - 12:53

I agree with some of the other guys. The MSRP will be $299, but the reality is the price will often be lower. I'd guess we will find 64GB versions for $299 or a little lower regularly. Then we...

I think the issue lies more with the carriers in the US.

Thursday, September 4, 2014 - 13:56

I've used it. The brightness of the screen next to my 928 and my One M8 is not great. It is the worst performer of the higher end handsets I've used in direct sunlight whereas the Nokias are...

Nice piece of hardware. Price right where good Miracast devices have been priced. My experience is that the cheap ones are cheap for a reason.

There's also a reason Chromecast is cheaper...

Shame it's not coming to the US.

As for the Nexus 5 comparisons, eh. Dirty little secret is Google subsidizes Nexus products for the lower prices and those Nexus products don't get...

I'm not sure if the subscription would be 30%. The first month when done in-app would, but you'd have to be handed off to set up a MS account, etc. There are ways to make the monthly...

I recommended that particular Dell to a friend and have used it. It's obviously not a power house, but more than adequate for internet browsing and using MS Office. Games in the Modern UI run...

I'm actually amazed that Microsoft has continued to support a hybrid functionality. I'm an old Zune Pass subscriber that gets to keep 10 songs per month. I can redeem them in Zune or in Xbox...

Thursday, July 17, 2014 - 10:36

Great thoughts and I feel the same. If Microsoft stands firmly by Windows Phone, I will stand firmly with them. I've already gotten over a dozen people to buy them. Small potatoes, but this has...

Thursday, July 17, 2014 - 09:52

Hallelujah!

X made sense for an independent Nokia. It made zero sense for Microsoft. That said, those are good looking phones on the low end that should draw the eye. They also don't...
