After famously refusing for years to bring its popular gaming portfolio to mobile devices like smartphones and tablets, Nintendo announced on Tuesday its partnership with Japan’s DeNA—one of the nation’s top mobile game publishers—to start making mobile games. In an interesting twist, Nintendo says that it will bring its popular intellectual properties to mobile platforms—but the games in which they’ll appear will be brand new, and not ports of older, popular titles.
Late last year, both Android and iPhone users were able to enjoy pretty considerable mobile operating system upgrades in the form of Android 5 and iOS 8, respectively. Now, it seems that significant upgrades to both operating systems will be hitting handsets very shortly, if recent reports across the web are any indication.
According to a post on AndroidPolice, Android 5.1 is first appearing on new Android One handsets being released in India. Currently, the latest build of [...]
Tomorrow, Microsoft will be holding an event to unveil the next pieces of its Windows 10 strategy. Since late last year, Microsoft has been working with users to shake the kinks out of Windows 10, via a Technical Preview that went live months before the planned consumer release of the new operating system. According to a report on ZDNet, it seems as though Microsoft will be going that same route for its mobile platform, as it’s expected to release a preview of Windows 10 mobile next [...]
Happy Sunday, everyone! Thanks for stopping by for this edition of the Weekend Wrap-Up, where we look at the top tech stories of the past week.
Both Apple and Google made headlines during the past seven days. Let’s find out why.Apple May Release New 4-Inch iPhone for Females
Listen up, women — Apple may have bumped up the display sizes on both the iPhone 6 and iPhone 6 Plus, but it’s not going to leave you, and what it believes are your tiny lady hands, [...]
Last year, Nokia entered into talks to sell its smartphone division to Microsoft, a sale that was completed just a few months ago. While it’s easy to say simply that “Microsoft bought Nokia,” since Nokia was primarily known as a smartphone maker, the truth is that the rest of Nokia still exists, separate and apart from Microsoft – and apparently, they’re making something new and different that’ll be revealed tomorrow.
This morning, Nokia published the following Tweet:
Amazon isn’t a company that is used to failing in spectacular fashion. It’s the largest retailer in the world. It has a healthy digital marketplace for music and videos. It sells a best-in-class e-reading device. And its Kindle Fire tablets have found a decent audience.
But its Fire Phone has been, thus far, a disaster. And now an Amazon VP is pretty much confirming it as such.
Vice President of Devices David Limp granted an interview to Fortune; in it, he [...]
In this year’s iPads, Apple introduced us to a brand new spin on the carrier SIM card — the Apple SIM. This single card was built to support multiple carriers, enabling consumers to switch between wireless data providers as they please.
It’s a neat concept. But you can pretty much forget about seeing the Apple SIM in iPhones — at least for the time being.
According to Greg Joswiak, Apple’s VP of iPhone, iPod and iOS product marketing, the Apple [...]
Happy Sunday, folks!
I typically try to shy away from covering a whole lot about one company in these Wrap-Ups. Unfortunately, not a whole lot happened this week, and Apple made the headlines quite a bit; for both good and bad reasons.
Yahoo made the news, too, though I’m sure it would rather not have. Let’s find out why.Apple Breaks Records, iPhone 6 Sales Top 10 Million
The iPhone 6 broke pre-order records this year, so it shouldn’t be a big [...]
Until the iPhone 6 Plus dropped on September 19, the largest phone Apple fans had to choose from touted a 4-inch display. The iPhone 5s, Apple’s last-generation iPhone, was small but sturdy. It fit into pockets perfectly. You never heard stories about people bending it by accident.
The iPhone 6 Plus? That’s a whole other story. The 5.5-inch display makes the phone substantially larger, and more difficult to fit into tight spots. And because people are trying to fit [...]
