We have the rest of the details after the jump!

Windows 10 phones will (sort of) run Android & iOS apps

Windows 10 phones will (sort of) run Android & iOS apps

Remember the Nokia X? It was one of the last Nokia handsets, but its platform was a subversive attempt by Microsoft to get Android apps onto their platform. Without much work, Android Developers could make their apps available on the Microsoft store for the Nokia X, which was meant to bridge a gap between platforms. that concept died, but Microsoft didn’t give up on making it easier for Developers to ‘write once, deploy everywhere’. Now, code written for Android and iOS apps can be compiled in Visual Studio.

The HTC One M9 will soon be appearing in a bespoke collection called HTC INK. This means that HTC One M9 models will be released in limited editions, each with their own design engraving from a set of highly talented artists. The first in this collection works with supermodel Jourdan Dunn and tattoo artist Cally Jo Pothecary, busting out a design that's as strange as it is lovely.

Alcatel ONETOUCH POP Astro brings LTE to the masses

Budget smartphones are a dime a dozen. When faced with a horde of competitors, differentiation could be a matter of life or death for a product line. Although Alcatel has brought its affordable ONETOUCH brand to the US before, it is now trying to reach for the starts with the new POP Astro. While still staying true to the promise of extremely affordable handsets with more or less acceptable hardware specs, the ONETOUCH POP Astro promises something that not every smartphone of its kind don't have: LTE connectivity.

Dell Venue 10 7000 tablet convertible now in the US

Dell Venue 10 7000 tablet convertible now in the US

Dell made a rather surprising move early this month when it unveiled the Venue 10 7000. Although in name it takes after the Venue 8 in the same 7000 series, the tablet looks more like a descendant of Lenovo's Yoga line. At the same time, however, it takes some cues from a Microsoft Surface, changing from an Android tablet at one moment into an Android laptop the next, thanks to an optional keyboard dock that gives the Venue 10 7000 its flexibility, both in form and in purpose.

Windows 10 might reveal Android compatibility at BUILD

Windows 10 might reveal Android compatibility at BUILD

It seems like the whispers of Android apps running on Windows 10 are getting stronger. Though that doesn't necessarily make them true, it does make the upcoming BUILD developer conference even more interesting if Microsoft does decide to drop the bombshell there. It's not like it's never been done before. BlackBerry 10 OS and Sailfish OS do employ such a compatibility to some extent. It's just that it's never been done officially on Windows before. But while the idea seems almost enticing, it could very well be suicide for Microsoft's primary platform.

Sony to brand Xperia Z4 as Xperia Z3+ in other markets

It seems that Sony might have become a bit unhinged in its efforts to hunker down on its somewhat floundering mobile business. First, it rather quietly unveiled the Xperia Z4, which may or may not be limited to the Japanese market. And then there are whispers of an Xperia P2 that looks terribly similar except in a few areas. Now there is word that Sony might actually sell the Xperia Z4 in other markets as well, but quite appropriately name it as the Xperia Z3+ instead.

Milk Video Review – Samsung’s YouTube

Milk Video Review – Samsung’s YouTube

While it might seem strange to call Milk Video "Samsung's YouTube" since it contains actual YouTube content, know this: it's what this software feels like that counts. Over the past few weeks I've been using Samsung's Milk Video on a Samsung Galaxy Note 4 regularly. Once I received a Samsung Galaxy S6 for review over on Android Community, I began using Milk Video there as well. Of this I'm sure: once you get past the idea that you're no longer in your video comfort zone, Samsung's work with Milk Video shines.

Report: Ouya needs a buyer, and quick

Ouya is in trouble. In a leaked email, CEO Julie Uhrman reportedly told investors and advisors that the company is in desperate need of a buyer after failing to restructure their debt. This comes after Ouya successfully secured investments from Alibaba in February to the tune of $10 million, and $15 million in a series A funding round two years ago. On top of that, Ouya earned an unknown amount via venture capital firm TriplePoint Capital. For now, Ouya’s focus is on ‘recovering’ as much capital as they can.
