Even Microsoft is rumored to have a large tablet coming

If the 12-inch Surface Pro 3 isn't big enough for you, worry not. Rumors are now pointing to the possibility that Microsoft might unveil a variety of Surface Pro 4 hybrids in October, with models differing not only in internal specs like before. This time, there might also be differences in sizes, with 13- and 14- inch variants said to also be available. This makes Microsoft just one of the latest big names to join the growing list of device makers trying to revitalize the tablet market by stretching their sizes further.

Microsoft DisplayCover gives Surface an epaper touchscreen

Microsoft DisplayCover gives Surface an epaper touchscreen

Microsoft's detachable Surface keyboard may already bring easy text entry to the tablet, but the company is cooking up a new DisplayCover prototype with its own e-paper touchscreen. The work-in-progress peripheral is the handiwork of Microsoft's Applied Sciences Group, combining not only a physical keyboard but a full-width touchscreen which can be used to show menu items, toolbar controls, or even offer an alternative input area.

#MicrosoftInAlaska – an Epic Lumia Adventure

#MicrosoftInAlaska – an Epic Lumia Adventure

We recently went on an adventure of a lifetime exploring Alaska with Microsoft. During the event, we used the Lumia 640 XL Windows Phone to capture our experience. It was also a big treat to have Stephen Alvarez – a National Geography photographer - on hand to provide first hand pro shooting tips. Taking pictures with a smartphone versus a camera is different in some respects but, at the core, there are many similarities.

Things to look for when shooting with a cameraphone:

  • Pay attention to the edges
  • Shoot high, shoot low, shoot sideways – be creative!
  • Capture the action
  • Watch the light – and in Alaska, there’s a lot of day light especially this time year. While there, the sun was out from around 5 AM until 11 PM at night.
  • Make friends – this is an important tip because according to Stephen, people will be less likely to freeze up when you’re using a cameraphone versus a larger Micro 4/3 or DSLR. Making friends is the key to unlocking doors and putting people at ease.
  • Have fun! It’s hard not to have fun when you’re out and about in Alaska or where ever your adventures might takes you. Enjoy yourself, be in the moment with your friends and family and be happy.

    Microsoft delays Surface Hub to January 1 because too popular

    Microsoft delays Surface Hub to January 1 because too popular

    It seems that one of Microsoft's promised products will fall back farther than the highly anticipated Windows 10 Mobile rollout. Updating its blog post on the Surface Hub, the company has revealed the updated shipping schedule for its "wall computer". Instead of September, the date is being pushed back as far as January 1 next year. The reason for the delay is, ironically, because there's a stronger demand for the Surface Hub than Microsoft anticipated, forcing it to adjust its production process and schedules for a more massive undertaking.

    Touchjet WAVE turns any TV into an Android Surface Hub

    Touchjet WAVE turns any TV into an Android Surface Hub

    We already have smart TVs, even those that run Android, but interacting with them still isn't something that has settled into a standard. You've got remote controls, gamepads, and even keyboard and mouse. So why not throw in two more ways? Like touch and a stylus. If that sounds almost familiar, then you've probably heard of Microsoft's Surface Hub. The Touchjet WAVE can do that too but at a fraction of the price and with the more open and more flexible Android. That is, if the crowdfunding campaign gets off the ground.

    Microsoft: glitch preventing Windows 10 store downloads will be fixed soon

    Microsoft: glitch preventing Windows 10 store downloads will be fixed soon

    While Microsoft's much-anticipated (or dreaded, depending on your situation) rollout of Windows 10 has been fairly smooth for most users, this weekend a bug surfaced that prevented some from being able to download app updates from the Windows Store. Users that are affected say they haven't been able to sign into the store, preventing them from either downloading new apps or getting updates for apps they already have installed.

    Microsoft Lumia 950 XL flagship leaks

    Microsoft Lumia 950 XL flagship leaks

    Microsoft may have been focusing on Windows 10 lately, but it also has a pair of flagship smartphones in the pipeline, photos of one of which have now leaked. The Microsoft Lumia 950 and 950 XL - otherwise known by their codenames, Talkman and Cityman - are expected to make their official debut in September or October this year, but the larger Lumia 950 XL has apparently escaped early in prototype form, at least.

    Next Lumia flagships to sport iris scanner, Surface Pen

    Next Lumia flagships to sport iris scanner, Surface Pen

    Although Microsoft is in a celebratory mood over the imminent release of Windows 10, the topic of Windows 10 smartphones remains to be a sore point. And it isn't just because of the company's somewhat indecisive, almost ambiguous, attitude towards this section of mobile, but even more because it lacks such a Wndows phone that it can truly be proud of. That, however, might soon change with Microsoft's next Lumia duo, codenamed Cityman and Talkman. Provided, of course, these rumors do pan out in the end.

    Microsoft suffered big financial blow last quarter

    Microsoft suffered big financial blow last quarter

    Following Apple's recent report, Microsoft has dropped details on its own most recent financial quarter, and it doesn't bring good news: the company had its worst quarterly results ever, something partly attributed to its Nokia happenings and a continually downturned PC market. The company saw a quarterly revenue drop of 5.1-percent, with it raking in $22.18 billion (compared to last year’s $23.38 billion). The company saw a decrease in Office sales despite a slight growth, as well as a drop in Windows volume licensing and Windows OEM revenue.

    Microsoft axes 7,800 jobs; Failed Nokia buy a $7.6bn write-off

    Microsoft will slash 7,800 jobs, the majority from its struggling phone division, and write-off $7.6bn over its Nokia acquisition, the company has confirmed today. The sweeping cuts cast a shadow over the future of Windows for smartphones, or at least Microsoft's role in building them, with the CEO Satya Nadella saying that for the moment the company plans a "focused phone portfolio" at least in the near-term. Where that leaves the rumored flagship Windows 10 smartphone many fans of the platform had been hoping for remains to be seen.

    Surface 3 LTE rolls out to businesses first, consumers later

    Surface 3 LTE rolls out to businesses first, consumers later

    Microsoft seems to have struck a chord with the Surface 3, if the Interwebs' reception of the "Surface Pro 3 mini" is any indication. And what could be better than a 10.1-inch Surface 3 running full Windows 8.1? Why, a 10.1-inch Surface running full Windows 8.1 with LTE, of course! It's an expected and natural progression for such a mobile tablet anyway. But don't take out those credit cards just yet, as the LTE-enabled Surface 3 won't be available to regular buyers until after a few weeks or so.
