Nokia today unveiled the Lumia 1020, marrying the most ambitious smartphone camera to date...

During the last few years, smartphone cameras have steadily improved. But every now and then a product comes along that doesn't have the patience for steady evolution. Nokia's new Lumia 1020, for example, takes the current 13-megapixel benchmark of phones like the Galaxy S4, and blows that spec out of the water.

That would probably be their colorful polycarbonate designs. But you can kiss that goodbye, at least for now. Nokia’s new Lumia 925 is all aluminum – maybe taking a cue or three from the iPhone 5 and HTC One.  Read More

Has Microsoft finally found the formula to beat iTunes?

As big companies like Apple, Amazon, Google and Microsoft each compete to gain supremacy in the “Post-PC” era, a killer ecosystem is thought key to keeping users locked in to one particular platform. While we can grant Microsoft’s gaming and business pedigree, its music services have been lacking thus far, and to address this, the Redmond company is launching a new music streaming service dubbed “Xbox Music,” which will be available from Tuesday October 16 on Xbox 360, with further platforms gaining support soon.  Read More
