Microsoft Lumia 950, Lumia 950 XL briefly appear on online store

Did Microsoft just try to steal some of the attention away from Google's Nexus announcements? Possibly. With Microsoft's own new hardware event scheduled for next week, the company's new flagship smartphones, the Lumia 950 and Lumia 950 XL, were accidentally listed on its UK online store earlier today. While the pricing details were left obscured, the listings did confirm a number of previously leaked specs, including screen sizes, storage, and camera features.

The link has since been pulled, but a copy of the image remains, showing a device that eschews the common product design for one that is wider and thinner.

Twitter tipped in plan to increase 140-character limit

Twitter tipped in plan to increase 140-character limit

Twitter. It’s obviously different from Facebook in many ways, but one of the best differences is the character limit — Twitter users are forced to think about what they’re saying, and you won’t have to slog through paragraphs of needless banter as a result. Still, URLs and image links eat up the present 140-character limit substantially, and not all succinct sentiments can be squeezed into such a small restriction.

We weren't in much doubt that Google's event on September 29 would be packed with two new smartphones, but fresh leaks fully detail the Nexus 6P that will share double-billing. Any doubts that it might be a true Nexus flagship seem to have been jettisoned along the way, too, with the promise of an all-metal body, a 5.7-inch WQHD display with Gorilla Glass 4 protection, and a sizable 3,450 mAh battery.

Nexus 6P, 5X leaked again, this time with colors

Just because Google's announced event is just around the corner doesn't mean the leaks and rumors have to stop. Quite the opposite, everyone is trying to get their last minute unofficial sources in before all of it is either validated or made moot. For example, we're once again getting some more or less better quality PR images of the Huawei Nexus 6P and the LG Nexus 5X. This time, however, we're also being given a peek at the color options that might be available when the two land next week.

HP Envy 8 Note might an interesting Windows 10 mini-tablet

HP Envy 8 Note might an interesting Windows 10 mini-tablet

HP has a new tablet coming but while it will run Windows 10 and have a stylus, fortunately or unfortunately, it will not be a Microsoft Surface clone. Instead, this so-called Envy 8 Note 2-in-1 tablet will come in a more handy 8-inch size that is seemingly optimized for note-taking. It will come with a folio cover for that very purpose, but will also ship with a keyboard and a stylus for good measure. The tablet also boasts of LTE connectivity, a not so common trait among new Windows 10 devices.

The Lumia 550 expected due next year might not be the fanciest handset around, nor would it be the most powerful, but it might have a secret function hidden in a corner that could potentially make this budget device worth noting.
