The Amazing Spider-Man movie: Dennis Leary talks Captain Stacy, slightly censored

The Amazing Spider-Man movie: Dennis Leary talks Captain Stacy, slightly censored

With The Amazing Spider-Man in theaters this week, it's high time you read up on the making of the film and it's future as spoken by the stars themselves, today's interview being with none other than Dennis Leary. Playing the role of Peter Parker's girlfriend Gwen Stacy's father, Leary lets it be known that he's not letting go of the series as easily as the classic plot-line surrounding his character would suggest. Note that this interview is especially littered with swearwords and spoilers galore, so if you're rather young or don't want to know what happens to Leary's character in the movie specifically, watch out - otherwise dip in on this rather candid talk with the actor.

Nokia Lumia 610 Review

Nokia Lumia 610 Review

The Lumia 610 is an interesting entry into the Windows Phone family. Microsoft lowered the barrier to entry with an update to the OS, dubbed Tango/Refresh, allowing handsets with lesser specifications into the fray. The Lumia 610 is the first shipping handset that takes advantage of the lower specs, coming with an 800Mhz processor and 256MB of RAM instead of the old 1Ghz and 512MB standard. As a result, Nokia is hoping that the reduced cost of the handset will capture the entry-level market, and we imagine Microsoft will be keeping a close eye on the situation too. Does the 610 hit the mark? Find out after the jump.

Samsung Focus 2 Review

AT&T has no shortage of value-priced phones, and just lately, a pretty good selection of 4G LTE devices as well. But the two haven't crossed over much yet, and the ranks of Windows Phone 7 devices are a little slim as well. Happily, all three of these categories can add the Samsung Focus 2, which goes on sale starting today for $49.99 with a two-year contract. Is it worth your hard-earned greenbacks? Let's find out.

Microsoft: Windows Phone legacy users update, or else

Microsoft: Windows Phone legacy users update, or else

In an update that comes down from the top, straight from Microsoft's Windows Phone officials that is, users will have to move to the Mango update for the mobile OS or get cut off entirely from the app Marketplace. This move is specifically for the smartphone-based software while large apps and games will still be able to be downloaded using Zune software as noted by Windows Phone's Mazar Mohammed. This update is being pushed so that Windows Phone can have a uniform update to their Marketplace and so they can "pave the way for new store features and new apps in the months ahead."

AT&T Samsung Focus 2 Hands-on

AT&T Samsung Focus 2 Hands-on

The next Windows Phone on the market will not be the most powerful device on the market, nor will it be the most flashy - instead it will be the Samsung Focus 2 at a mere $50 and LTE right out of the gate. This device runs Windows Phone Mango, has a 5 megapixel camera on the back, and is extremely basic in its functions and form. You'll notice how similar it looks to the Galaxy S Blaze on T-Mobile, this device also representing the same basic concept - 4G LTE speeds at a super-low cost.

Nokia Lumia 710 and 800C receive tethering update

Nokia Lumia 710 and 800C receive tethering update

As much as we like both Nokia and Windows Phone, not to mention the delicious pairing of the two, one feature that has been missing from phones like the Lumia 710 and 800 is the ability to tether your 3G connection. Nokia has promised in the past that it will be bringing the feature in an update, and that certainly seems to be the case with the Refresh/Tango update rolling out to certain countries right now.

No Windows Phone 8 upgrade for current handsets tip insiders

None of the currently available Windows Phone devices - including Nokia's new Lumia 900 flagship - will get an upgrade to Windows Phone 8 "Apollo" insiders have warned, the next tough-to-swallow hurdle for Microsoft's platform. Despite comments earlier by one Microsoft evangelist suggesting all Windows Phone 7 devices would get an upgrade to the incoming major refresh of the mobile OS, other sources say that's definitely not the case.

HTC Titan II Review

HTC Titan II Review

Over at AT&T you've got two giant choices for hero phones if you want to run with Windows Phone Mango - the Nokia Lumia 900 and the HTC Titan II.

HTC Titan II Hands-on

HTC Titan II Hands-on

We're getting our first final-product hands-on experience with the HTC Titan II here at the end of the week, and with its seemingly large 16 megapixel camera, Windows 7.5 Mango, and 4.7-inch display, it appears we've got a beast in our fingers. To be sure, we've also got the iPhone 4S and the HTC One S here to compare to in brief - for their cameras, mostly. What you'll find here in this first hands-on post is that this device is more than up to the task of being a fabulous Windows Phone - but is the smartphone you're looking for?
