Microsoft Pink dying & taking Windows Mobile with it?

After mediocre feedback to the leaked Microsoft Pink handsets, Turtle and Pure, now comes word from inside the project itself that the whole house of cards may be close to tumbling.  An ex-team member has been talking to Apple Insider about the Pink "skunkworks" project and its mismanagement, including attempting to develop too many SKUs simultaneously, potentially misleading hardware and carrier partners, and in the process pulling the rug out from the already-ailing Windows Mobile.  In fact, he reckons the Pink project is "near death and probably will be canceled".

T-Mobile product event brings full Fall lineup October 29th

It's more than a little bit of a coincidence that T-Mobile has just released invites to an event that will take place the same day as Google's own Android event and the Microsoft Windows 8 event earlier in the day - the 29th of October. This T-Mobile event will more than likely be the first reveal of the new Nexus smartphone made by LG - a device we've seen leaked quite a few times now - and it'd be a pretty good bet that T-Mobile will be carrying it right out of the gate. It could also very well be the hands-on point for a collection of T-Mobile Windows Phone 8 devices all at once. Or both possibilities could coincide!

Welcome to Friday everyone. The weekend is here is last, and what better way to kick it off than with a giveaway? We've teamed up with NVIDIA to hand out three 16GB Google Nexus 7 tablets, so be sure to enter (but read the rules before you do!). Apple and Samsung's ongoing patent trial gave us a glimpse at sales numbers for both companies today, and we also found out that Apple is looking for a whopping $2.45 billion from Samsung. Even though Google has remained publicly silent about this whole suit, it turns out that it has been providing support for Samsung behind the scenes during the trial.

ZTE Orbit Hands-on

ZTE Orbit Hands-on

One of the first devices to be revealed with Windows Phone Tango on it right out of the box is the ZTE Orbit, a device revealed this week in ZTE's torrent of smartphone releases. This device is set for a second quarter release and is just about as basic and low-end specification having device you can find, it being part of Microsoft's initiative to bring more Windows Phone to the whole world, including areas where an inexpensive smartphone is the only sort of smartphone that's a reality for the general population. With ZTE at the helm of one of the first devices in this Tango line, will Microsoft have a winning combination on their hands?
