Surface Pro 3 Review

By  • 

The history of Microsoft’s efforts in actual hardware reads like a rags to riches story. Obviously, what happened with the Zune portable media players represents the rags.

Review: Windows Phone 8X by HTC

By  • 

The weaker contenders have bowed out of the Windows Phone device race –but let’s be honest Dell and LG were never really in it to win gold. No, this was always going to be an epic battle between HTC and Nokia and if you thought the latter’s status as premiere Windows Phone partner was going to dampen HTC’s drive, you’re mistaken, the HTC 8X is proof of that.
