Things are about to get tough for troubled mobile phone maker, HTC. It has been a while since the Taiwanese company started losing ground on the smartphone market. And this decline is now set to significantly expand next year. It appears that the company is having a torrid time making a name for itself in the midrange...

Ha, who would have thought they’d be reading a headline like this! Go back six to eight months, and it seemed that every other person was blaming Windows 8 for the lackluster PC sales. Not many thought the PC hardware industry shared the bulk of the blame. But it is remarkable how much things can change in under a...

Redmond’s mobile operating system has been rocking and rolling recently. The company has a pretty good thing going for its Windows Phone 8 platform, and continues to slowly but surely gain market share and traction around the globe. Now the company is really eying the entry level market, and is ready to shift the very...

Greatness is pretty much guaranteed when things work in unison. It has been one of the talking points of the technology industry whether tablet devices are really PCs, and how and where they should be factored in when reporting market numbers.

Mobile was long hyped up as a bold new frontier for computing. While some companies understood this early and ran away with success others realized this too late into the game and are now on the back foot with declining sales and decreasing shipment numbers. Now with wearable computing touted as the new direction, PC...

The war for mobile computing supremacy seems to be going according to plan. Back in January this year, NPD DisplaySearch foresaw this much when it said that tablet shipments would greatly exceed those of notebooks in 2013.
