Microsoft Surface Windows RT confirmed with NVIDIA’s Tegra processor

While Microsoft announced two new Surface PC tablets today at their event in LA, one thing they didn't make clear was the processor under the hood powering one of their new slates.

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.

Nokia 808 PureView Explored: Hands-on Samples

Nokia 808 PureView Explored: Hands-on Samples

Nokia gave us no small surprise when it launched the Nokia 808 PureView and its new camera-phone technology. Promising a headline-grabbing 41-megapixel sensor, paired with image processing systems more akin to what you'd find in spy satellites than smartphones, it's the first fruit of a project five years in the making.
