Throwback Thursday, anyone? Let’s wind back the clock a few years, and look at this feature phone with Windows UI that Microsoft quietly abandoned before release. Apparently, the RM-1182 has surfaced, providing us with a hint at what Redmond was planning back then. It was soon after the company purchase the Nokia...

Stating the obvious here. Nokia is here with its latest Threat Intelligence Report, which reveals what we already know. That Android is the most targeted platform by malware authors. Windows is listed in second place, with 27.96%. But no less than 68.50% of the malware is specifically aimed at the Google operating...

Flip no longer on board? Microsoft announced the arrival of the Flipboard app for its platform with appropriate fanfare all those years back, but now is the time to say goodbye. And that’s because the company has decided to give up on the mobile OS, abandoned Microsoft’s mobile platform, and has chosen to focus on...

As did a million other souls, perhaps. Because there was a time when the Windows Phone platform was well and truly in the ascendency, at least in Europe. All that was needed was a sustained push.

The Chinese Odyssey continues for Microsoft. Since the Nokia acquisition, the technology titan has been gradually cutting jobs and releasing its surplus workforce. No surprises here, considering they got nearly 25,000 employees from the Nokia deal. Microsoft initially projected that they may have to cut no less than...

Finally, some Lumia 930 news. Microsoft’s strategy of delaying the launch of new Windows Phone flagships handsets until later this year when Windows 10 for Phones see daylight is having its effects. In order to move inventory, prices of current Lumia flagships continue to free fall. The Lumia 930, for example, went on...

Care for a clear out sale? Microsoft is now offering the Lumia 520 for just $29. Yes, this is the same handset that took the Windows Phone market by storm upon release a couple of years back. And in the process becoming the most popular Windows Phone handset of all time. Sure, newer entry level models like the Lumia...

Microsoft had a perfectly fine quarter in mobile, moving 10.5 million Lumia handsets, but guess which company found even bigger success. Nokia recorded a massive increase in profits. The company reported €3.8 billion in revenue in the fourth quarter of the year to go with €470 million in net profit, which should...
