Amazon France, following the lead of Microsoft in the United Kingdom by cutting the price of the Microsoft Lumia 950 and Lumia 950 XL.

By Josh Dasey on Thursday October 29, 2015

One of the best things about the Microsoft Lumia 950 and Lumia 950 XL flagships announced earlier this month was the Continuum software that allows them to be hooked up to a screen and used as a fully functioning PC. The handsets themselves are excellent, but this feature was unique and difference maker, although it came with one significant caveat.

By Pablo Jimenez on Monday October 26, 2015

We have heard plenty of rumors about a Microsoft Surface Mini, a smaller (likely 8-inch) version of the company's larger Surface and Surface Pro tablets.

By Luke Jones on Thursday October 08, 2015

Microsoft delivered two pretty stellar smartphones at its launch event yesterday, but the Lumia 950 and Lumia 950 XL are already proving that the company's uphill battle against iOS and Android cannot merely be fought on a hardware level. The software plays a huge part and while there is plenty to get excited about surrounding the whole Windows 10 ecosystem, the platform will have to break down barriers to be seen and shout from soap boxes to be heard.

Microsoft Lumia 950 XL, Up Close
By Luke Jones on Tuesday October 06, 2015

Microsoft's Windows platform has failed to make an impact on the market duopoly enjoyed by Apple's iOS and of course Google's all-conquering Android. There has been respectable growth for Windows in lower prices ranges for emerging markets, but the lack of flagship hardware has held Microsoft back for some time. That could change with the introduction of the Lumia 950 and Lumia 950 XL, both smartphones that were launched today.

By Luke Jones on Tuesday October 06, 2015

Microsoft launched two devices running its Windows 10 Mobile platform today, the Lumia 950 and the Lumia 950 XL. While the 950 XL is the more spec?d out of the two, it is the Lumia 950 that is Microsoft's flagship, simply because its smaller size will appeal to more people.

The latest information suggests that the Surface Pro 4 will come with a razor thin bezel that will make it look like an all-screen device.

September and IFA comes around too soon for Microsoft and its upcoming Windows 10 Mobile platform.
