To date, we haven't heard a lot about Android 5.0 in terms of features, but Ice Cream Sandwich (Android 4.0) has had a lot of time to mature. Particularly on the Galaxy Nexus, the pure version of ICS is one of the most fluid, visually appealing mobile OSes -- but is it still the best alternative for those who are shying away from the iPhone for one reason or another? We ask the question because of Windows Phone's recent successes, however mild they may be. Microsoft's Windows Phone 7.5 (Mango) feels like a completely overhauled version of the original WP7 build that shipped with phones like the... Read more...
2012 is shaping up to be a major year for mobile operating systems. For those fortunate enough to own a smartphone, these are exciting times. Competition is fierce, and the winner is you. Regardless of which platform you're keen on, you can bet that each of the major players are pushing the others to innovate and improve. In just a few weeks, Apple's Worldwide Developer Conference will kick off. While it remains to be seen if a new MacBook Pro or a new iPhone will launch, one thing is very likely: iOS 6 will be showcased for the first time. WWDC 2011 was where iOS 5 really got its wings, and... Read more...

Nokia's Lumia 710 smartphone landed at T-Mobile last week and is available for purchase for a mere $50 with a two-year service agreement (and after a $50 mail-in-rebate). It's a middle-of-the-road Windows Phone device that's fairly decent for the money, but if you're holding out for Nokia's upcoming Lumia 900 smartphone, you don't have too much longer to go. A post on a Nokia Developer Website tips the release date as being sometime in March. "The Nokia Lumia 900 phone runs Microsoft Windows Phone 7.5. It is the biggest and fastest smartphone yet. And it will become available exclusively through... Read more...
So, this is interesting. While Samsung and Apple are spending untold amounts of money on legal battles across the globe, Samsung has decided to not wage those same wars with another tech monolith: Microsoft. Microsoft has been on a warpath of late, tracking down companies (mostly who sell Android-based products) that touch Microsoft's patents in one way or another. This way, Microsoft rakes in royalties for products they don't even sell. It's a wild situation, truth be told, and it's a little insane to think that most every Android device sold benefits Microsoft in one way or another. Must be nice... Read more...
With Mango hitting devices this week, the flood of handsets designed specifically for Microsoft's next-gen build of WP7 has begun.

It's the carrier's first Windows Phone capable of 4G speeds (HSPA+, in this case), also boasting a 3.8" touch display, a virtual QWERTY keyboard, a 1GHz Snapdragon processor, Internet Explorer 9 and a 5MP rear camera with LED flash. The carrier isn't doling out a price or release date, but it'll be out before the holidays. So, is this the white handset of your dreams?... Read more...
Say hello to a different kind  of fruit: Mango. While the news of late has focused on Apple's upcoming iPhone 5 launch, Microsoft has some news of their own on the mobile OS front. Windows Phone 7.5 is the first major overhaul of the system since the (more basic) NoDo updates began to roll out a few months ago, and starting this week, WP7 users should begin to see the v7.5 update roll their way. Microsoft claims that this release has a "people-first" attitude, and there's focus on multitasking, more integrated apps, primo mobile Web browsing, and powerful and personalized tools, like integrated...

Looking for Mango? AT&T has it coming hot and heavy. While this week is all about Windows 8, as Microsoft's BUILD Conference starts tomorrow, the company's mobile OS is still of the utmost importance for MS' future. Windows Phone 7.5, the first major overhaul since NoDo, is all set to roll out to major carriers, with AT&T being a major partner here in the United States. Today, the carrier is introducing three new 4G devices in 4Q -- including the Samsung Focus S, HTC Titan, and Samsung Focus Flash. All three will run Mango, and furthermore, AT&T will start updating existing Windows... Read more...
