If you've made the decision to swim in Windows Phone waters, you may have been eyeballing Nokia's Lumia 1020 and been turned on by its 41-megapixel rear-facing camera. That's pretty beastly, but a glance at the $299 price tag may have turned you off just as quickly. Would you be interested again if it was $100 cheaper? Whether or not you would... Read more...
Under Steve Jobs, Apple could seemingly do no wrong, at least towards his latter years. There was the introduction of the iPhone, the iPod touch, and the iPad, each of which were must-have devices for a period of time (some would argue they still are, though Samsung would certainly dispute that). When Jobs passed... Read more...

If there's one thing Microsoft's Windows Phone platform desperately needs (other than a larger user base), it's more apps. We're not talking about fart apps and other filler type material, but at this point, it's even missing some of the more popular apps available on other platforms. One you can soon cross off the...

Perhaps realizing that it may have overestimated the demand for a high-end Windows... Read more...

Nokia, perhaps more-so than any other smartphone manufacturer in the game right now, needed to find a way to make something special. The new Nokia Lumia 1020, though it sports essentially the same internals and display as Nokia's Lumia 920, most definitely is different, and perhaps even a very attractive alternative, depending on your specific...
