The Nokia/Microsoft Lumia 830 is set to land at the IFA trade show in Berlin in one week?s time and will be a mid-range effort that is likely to appeal to those in emerging markets. Of course, those looking to get on the Windows Phone platform anywhere in the world will be able to get the Lumia 830 at a relatively decent price. Today the smartphone has shown up next to what is arguably the daddy of the Lumia range, the 930.

When the HTC One M8 launched on Windows Phone yesterday it caused a significant stir for all kinds of reasons. However, like other Windows devices, it was tied to one carrier, in this instance Verizon, with the general thought being that the M8 for WP was exclusive to the biggest carrier in the United States.

By Luke Jones on Monday August 18, 2014

The Nokia Lumia 520 has finally been treated to the latest version of Windows Phone, version 8.1 with Nokia's Cyan software on board. That is a fitting addition considering the 520 has done as much for Microsoft's (admittedly slow) mobile growth as any other smartphone.

HTC to launch other smartphones on Windows
By Luke Jones on Thursday August 14, 2014

HTC is expanding its horizons later in the month by launching its HTC One M8 flagship on Microsoft's Windows Phone platform. At the moment the M8 is very much an Android device, one of the best in fact, but HTC sees a window of opportunity to jump on the growing Windows Phone OS.

Most of the big companies that attend the IFA trade show in Berlin have already sent their invites, such as HTC, Samsung, Huawei, and Sony. However, some are still missing, but another giant has thrown its considerable weight into the IFA mix as Microsoft has pencilled its press event for the week on September 4th.

By Luke Jones on Sunday August 10, 2014

Windows Phone's rise has been solid since Microsoft launched version 8 of the platform.

While we have our doubts about the marketing merits of companies selling handsets as "selfie" phones, it seems that it is a going trend. Microsoft will jump on that particular bandwagon with a new device that has been rumoured for some time but has now shown up for the first time in a leaked image.
