Even though Microsoft has been quite cryptic about the Surface Phone as a whole, we do occasionally get comments from company officials, as well as the odd patent detail that reveal what’s cooking. So much so that there is now reason to think that a new device is actually on its way. Whether it has what it takes to...

Well, there you have it, ladies and gentlemen. Unconfirmed, but comes from a reliable sources. The news that Windows Phone 8.1 Update 2 will not be released for existing devices. Instead, Redmond only plans to make it available on new models. This latest version of Windows Phone 8.1 was recently spotted on a number of...

We can always hope for more surprises, but three will do for now. MWC 2015 is fast approaching, with the anticipated trade fair about to take place in Barcelona from March 2 to 5.

Recent leaks claim that the successor to the Lumia 1320 will see daylight well before the Lumia 1520 gets a successor. And...

Redmond surely wants to expand its new Microsoft Lumia brand, and the Lumia 1330 has already been spotted in the wild, as the successor to the popular Lumia 1320 smartphone.
