  • Microsoft went on a shopping spree, buying up Nokia's phone and services division for a cool $7.2 Billion dollars. Nokia's line of phones, probably the most popular phones running the Windows OS, are now the property of the PC and Software giant. This move is being made to facilitate growth and improve Microsoft's position in the smartphone market. In addition to the buy, some suits are going to be shifting spots in the hierarchy of Nokia with most staying in the company, but maybe one, that being now-former Nokia CEO Stephen Elop, moving into the big chair at Microsoft once now-CEO Steve Ballmer vacates his spot.


    Microsoft's deal will allow them to partner up more throughly with Nokia.

    The purchase breaks down like this. Microsoft is paying $5 Billion for pretty much all of Nokia's phone division. $2.2 Billion of the purchase price will go towards acquiring and licensing Nokia's numerous patents. As alluded to in the opening paragraph, where things get interesting is the moving of pieces in both companies hierarchies. The worst kept secret in the tech industry is the fact that Microsoft's CEO Steve Ballmer will be leaving his post sometime in the near future. It is believed that Nokia's former CEO Stephen Elop, who is getting shifted to Executive Vice-President of the devices and services division, could be next in line for the big job at Microsoft. While that remains to be seen and will play out over time, it certainly is interesting times at Microsoft.


    It'll be interesting to see what Microsoft can do to boost Nokia's promising line of phones. While not having the reach of IOS or Android, the Windows OS does have a lot of potential. It will be very interesting to see what greater integration will mean for these two mobile giants, and if, with their powers combined, they can finally tackle their common enemy, Apple and Samsung.

  • Samsung is getting the jump on Apple in more ways than one in unveiling the Galaxy Gear smartwatch on September 4th. The unveil precedes Apple's press event on September 10th and the companies desire to release their own iteration of the smartwatch. Samsung is hoping that beating Apple to the punch will translate into results for the company, and finally get the Apple monkey off their back as they set the market for smartwatches on their own terms.


    The Samsung Galaxy Gear is set to ship in five different colours. This includes white, orange, grey, black, and gold. The curved screen that Samsung has shown off at tech events over the years will not be utilized by the Galaxy Gear as of yet, but by the sounds of things, the goal is to eventually produce a smartwatch with a curved screen. This certainly depends on how well the new device does at market and whether or not it is worthy of future investment. What we will likely see instead is a square OLED screen around 2.5 inches across.

    Functionally, it appears as if the Galaxy Gear will feature advanced optimization with other Galaxy products like the Samsung Galaxy S4 and Galaxy Tab. Some potential features include the ability to sync your watch instantaneously through an app with your phone, allowing you to do things like read text messages on your watch seamlessly. For those thinking that the watch will replace your phone or tablet, that is highly unlikely as features such as messaging and calling will need to be synced up with your existing device via a Bluetooth connection.


    While we are speculating, this is brand new tech. We are likely in for more than a few surprises come September 4th when Samsung holds its unveil for the Samsung Galaxy Gear. Whether or not Apple responds sooner or later with the iWatch remains to be seen, but the first shot across the bow of the smartphone war will be fired by Samsung.

  • The HTC One is by and large considered the top phone on the market right now. It features superior design in the form of a solid aluminum chassis, true stereo sound speakers, and internal components that put it at the top performance-wise. As we near the end of this phone generation and proceed towards a new iPhone, Galaxy, and possibly HTC phone, we thought it made sense to take a look at our top three favourite phone cases for the HTC One.


    The Otterbox Defender One


    The Defender Series by Otterbox continues the brand's strong tradition towards protecting your devices. This time around the brand is focusing on the popular HTC One. The Defender Series uses triple layer protection to protect your device from scratches, dust, drops, bumps, and shocks. The layers include a clear protective membrane around the device, a hard polycarbonate shell, and a durable silicone layer. This case also ships with a belt clip holster and, of course, still allows full use of your phone's key ports and buttons. Take your phone wherever you want to and have to go with the Defender Series from Otterbox.



    G-Zed Mobile One


    A high quality TPU skin designed to custom fit your phone, while allowing full access to the ports and controls. This lightweight case from G-Zed Mobile protects your HTC One while maintaining a low-profile, keeping your phone feeling thin and light without compromising durability. Preserve the investment in your phone by protecting it with a stylish and affordable skin from G-Zed Mobile.



    Incipio Feather Shine


    Featuring a rigid Plextonium frame, the Incipio Feather Shine is a best-seller. Built to be lightweight yet durable, the Feather Shine weighs in at just 0.5 ounces and surrounds your device with extreme protection. Shipping in multiple colours, this case from Incipio suits any style and is a surefire hit.

  • Nokia Lumia 625 Phone Review
    Posted on August 21, 2013 by keith holland

    The Nokia Lumia line features some of the quirkiest and coolest looking phones on the market. The vibrant colours, the detachable backplates, the Lumia line has a lot of personality. For what the phones, at least the lower end models, in performance, they make up in style. The Nokia Lumia 625 is a cool phone, with weak guts, but it makes it up in style and customization.



    Like other models in the Nokia Lumia line, the 625 features interchangeable back covers. These colours are expressive, and just plain fun. While the design build isn’t the quality of say the HTC One, the Lumia 625 impresses in a different way just as much. One thing you do notice as you use this phone though is the low-quality screen. It is a mid-range phone, and it seems they made all the concessions on the screen. It really is the achilles heel of this device.


    One place the phone does make hay though is on the hardware front. While a dual-core, 1.2 GHz processor doesn’t seem like much, it runs the phones Windows 8 Operating System fluidly. Just like the colours of the phone, this highly customizable tile-based OS is fun and really suits the phone. The only thing that holds it back, like any Windows phone, is the complete lack of apps for the device.


    Ultimately, this mid-range phone is just that. It doesn’t perform with the big guys, but it makes the best with what it has. The Lumia 625 is a cool phone with limitations. It’s customizable back covers and OS are a hit, but things like a poor screen make it obvious that this isn’t a flagship device from Nokia, just a fun one. Sometimes thats all a phone needs to be.


     


    Pros


    -Fun colours


    -The Windows 8 OS performs well


    -Low price tag


     


    Cons


    -Low-quality screen


    -Limited app selection


    -Not a good choice for gamers


     


    Specs


    Weight : 159 grams


    Size : 133.3 x 72.3 x 9.2 mm


    Screen : 4.7 inches


    OS : Microsoft Windows Phone 8


    Camera : Rear-Facing 5 megapixel camera

  • The case is building towards Apple announcing at least one new phone at their press event on September 10th. While it is a near certainty that one of those products will be heavily rumoured and leak riddled iPhone 5C, the true successor to the iPhone 5 is still somewhat shrouded in mystery. Is it the iPhone 6? Is it the iPhone 5S? Nobody is 100% sure. What we do THINK we know is that it MIGHT come with something new to mobile phones and is sure to really change how we secure our phones.


    Leaked photos showing a new design for the home button, and the ever-present rumour of a fingerprint sensor seem to indicate that the new iPhone will include a fingerprint scanner as its key feature. The leaked photos show that there is definitely something new under the hood of the new iPhone and while hardware comes and goes, the iPhone doesn't change much physically as the versions come and go. It's certainly worth noticing as Apple's press event approaches next month.


    Additionally, another new rumour has popped up recently, and it's got a golden ring to it. According to, get this, more leaked photos, the new iPhone 5S/6, may ship in two colours. The one you are used to and has become a staple of Apple products, and a new gold backed device. It certainly is an interesting design choice if true but I wouldn't put too much stock in it.


    Whaaaaaaaat?

    Regardless of what comes next month, the world will certainly be watching as the world's most important electronics company gets set to unveil its newest phones. The world of mobile phones has changed quite a bit since the iPhone 5 launched last year. It will be interesting to see what comes next and how the world reacts to one of the world's biggest trend setters unleashing their next big thing.

  • The end of the line is coming for the Apple iPhone 5. Sad to say, but on September 10th Apple is likely to announce at least one new phone meaning your iPhone 5 will soon be knocked one rung down the ladder. With that being said, we are here to celebrate our three favourite accessories for this legendary phone. Here are our favourite accessories for the Apple iPhone 5.


    Griffin Midtown Wallet


    If you have always felt a deprivation of a wallet that can have both your iPhone 5 and important cards Griffin GB36017 Midtown Wallet iPhone 5 cover is for you. With beautifully designed and allocated space for both your iPhone and cards this is the wallet of this century.

  • Apple's big day is coming very soon. September 10th is just around the corner and the speculation is that Apple will be unveiling at least one new model of the iPhone. On top of the reported Apple iPhone 5S announcement, there is rampant speculation that we will see a low-cost iPhone hit the market as well. The iPhone 5C has been highly speculated, almost moreso than the 5S, and some features are beginning to leak out. But, we are now beginning to hear what you expect to hear when you hear the word budget. We are beginning to hear about the features that won't come with the 5C.



    In addition to being generally a less powerful phone, it is now being reported that the Apple iPhone 5C will ship without our favourite personal assistant Siri. The highly popular and increasingly useful Siri apparently won't make the trip into the architecture of the Apple iPhone 5C. While changes are expected to be minimal with the iPhone 5S outside of a possible fingerprint reader, it is expected that the 5C will be built cheaper not just inside, but outside as well. The plastic bodied phone is expected to situate itself above the iPhone 4S in the Apple hierarchy, replacing the very popular 4S as the second option for people looking to pick up an Apple smartphone. This is quite surprising considering that the iPhone 4 is still a very popular entry level smartphone that continues to sell in droves among younger audiences.


    While it is always sad to see the retirement of a very popular phone like the Apple iPhone 4S, it was bound to happen. It is just sad to see it replaced by a phone that will admittedly be weaker and less supported by popular Apple software. Here's hoping that Apple doesn't take the wind out of the Apple iPhone 5C's sails before it hits the open sea.

  • The LG G2 Phone Review
    Posted on August 14, 2013 by keith holland

     


    A phone which isn’t scared to show some screen, the LG G2 uses its big screen and strong hardware to show you its potential, but lets its software and interface drag it down a bit. Call it a case of having all the tools, but lacking a tool box, this phone could do any job if it just knew how to put it all together. Unfortunately we are left with a hot mess of high-end hardware and unfulfilled promise.



    The LG G2 features a very pretty 5.2 inch full HD screen. Its looks are aided further by the fact that the screen takes up almost the entire front of the device. No dark areas around it, the front is pretty much all screen. The phone itself is built on a plastic chassis which leaves something to be desired. Additionally, the phone features hi-fi audio. While it doesn’t match the HTC One’s true stereo sound it certainly is a welcome addition that goes unnoticed by many phone makers.


    The G2 features some hefty specs. It comes loaded with a Qualcomm Snapdragon 800 chip running at 2.26 GHz with 2 GB of RAM. In addition to this horsepower bump, this phone also ships with a massive 3,000 mAh battery that LG promises will give you 1.2 days of usage. If those claims hold up then hallelujah! Someone finally listening and put a 21st Century battery in a 21st Century device.


    Now, where it gets interesting. The G2 features a display that takes up the whole screen. This is made possible by moving the phones buttons to the back of the phone. While the attempt at innovation is admirable, it is nearly impossible to make something like this work for people with very different hand sizes. Not everyone is going to like this feature. Secondly, the Android 4.2. Jelly Bean OS is very cluttered thanks to LG’s special touches to the software. This leaves you wishing they would of just left it alone. It introduces some elements that work, but are overly complicated


    Bottom line, the LG G2 is a sports car, but a sports car with the pedals reversed and a steering wheel that turns the opposite way. This phone has so much power but evidently has no idea what to do with it. People who prefer a highly customized experience will enjoy the G2, but casual phones users who want a phone that works exactly like you want out of the box should steer away from this smartphone.


     


    Pros


    -Awesome screen


    -Powerful processor


    -Great battery


     


    Cons


    -Complicated interface


    -Plastic chassis


    -Interesting button placement


     


    Specs


    Weight : 143 grams


    Size : 138.5 x 70.9 x 8.9 mm


    Screen : 5.2 inches


    OS : Android 4.2.2 Jelly Bean


    Camera : 13 megapixel rear-facing, 2.1 megapixel front-facing

  • BlackBerry stocks jumped yesterday following the news that BlackBerry would begin exploring options regarding selling the company. The move, which has been rumoured, speculated, and encouraged for some time, could be on the horizon for the stumbling company. The news follows a year of promise, followed by mediocrity, with BlackBerry 10, and its offspring the Z10 and Q10, failing to recapture the excitement of an older time when it comes to BlackBerry.


    This most recent blast of news comes on the heels of rumours of BlackBerry going private and was sparked by the announcement of the formation of a committee devoted to finding strategic alternatives. It is expected that many companies would be interested in acquiring or partnering with BlackBerry, including Fairfax Financial, whose boss Prem Watsa resigned from the Board of Directors of BlackBerry to avoid any conflict of interest in a potential purchase. The rumours alone inspired BlackBerry's stock to surge Monday, something that happened before when rumours of acquisitions or selling have risen up.


    Since the rebrand earlier this year from Research In Motion to BlackBerry, the company has released three new phones. The Z10, Q10, and Q5 were the first phones to feature the BlackBerry 10 Operating system. It is believed that a new phone, possibly called the A10, will also arrive before the end of the year. These phones were to be the saving grace of BlackBerry, and their first real updates to their product line since they flirted with touch screen technology with the older Storm and Torch product lines. What we have seen is a case of expectations set too high, and products not lofty enough to raise BlackBerry from the ashes. While there is hope that BlackBerry will sell and hopefully rise up, this is a brand that truly needs a reboot and new products that will excite their audience.
