Nokia Lumia 530 Coming to T-Mobile for only $69 No Contract

One of T-Mobile's core principles is value.  They pride themselves on giving you more for your money and if the latest rumor is true this will continue in about two weeks when the Nokia Lumia 530 lands as a pre-paid device for only $69!   This is pretty shocking considering they charged $149 for the Nokia Lumia 521 while ATT was charging only $99 for twin the Lumia 520.

Rumor: HTC One M8 “Eye” with 13mp Camera Coming

I am not talking Boom Sound speakers, 41mp cameras,...

Cortana Learning New Languages Getting Ready for Europe

One of the great things about being a Windows Phone for users here in the United States is that Microsoft is a US based company and therefore you get all the cool features first. Case in point is Cortana, the company's prsonal voice assistant. As of right now I have had her so long It's simply second nature to ask her to do things when I pick up my device. However, this is not true across most of Europe. If reports are to be believed...

Jolla Officially Expands Into India on Snapdeal

Finnish smartphone maker Jolla is doing things a little different than other OEM's in many ways. One of these is to expand slowly and only sell their devices in countries they can support.  Today they announced that are expanding into a key market India.  This market is key since India was a Nokia stronghold and Jolla is a company started by Ex-Nokians running their too soon orphaned (and brillant)  MeeGo/Sailfish OS.  Check out the...
