Microsoft has a new mobile movie editing tool, which actually shares similar features from the one it launched in July. This time around, the software works on Windows 8.1 tablets too.
For volume buyers, Microsoft launches sort-of, kind-of per-user licensing for Windows. It’s probably not enough, but it’s a start.
Microsoft said it was taking the low-cost market seriously and now it has proof: A pair of tablets and two laptops from HP that use Windows 8.1 with Bing and come with a year of Office 365 personal plus a terabyte of OneDrive storage.
As Microsoft gets serious about competing at the low-end by eliminating Windows licensing fees for some devices, it hopes to attract more interest from hardware partners. It looks like the strategy is working well with HP, which is expected to offer a €179 Windows tablet.
Current Windows Phone devices gained many new preview features last week but the more significant news could be aimed at future devices. In addition to new screen resolutions, Windows Phone can run on Wi-Fi-only devices up to 7-inches. Surface Mini redux?
Anytime you combine two vastly different product types into a single device, you’re going to have to make compromises. Up to now, Microsoft’s Surface line made too many. This time, with Surface Pro 3, Microsoft shows us that one plus one can equal more than two.
Microsoft’s Surface Pro 3 is now available in the U.S. and Canada. The company also moved up availability for the Core i3 and i7 versions, and is now taking orders for the docking station.
I’d never argue that Microsoft’s Surface Pro 3 should be your first choice if you’re looking for a pure tablet. If you have limited tablet needs, though, the slate functions are a nice bonus from the ultrabook-like laptop computer.
Even at first blush it’s easy to see that Surface Pro 3 is a better laptop than its predecessor: It’s thinner, lighter, has a better display with more room to work and has a super trackpad. Is it a better tablet? That’s hard to say.
An official Microsoft(s msft) support page spotted by The Verge references the Surface Pro 3, a device that doesn’t yet exist. It’s…
For as much good news that Microsoft shared for end-users, developers and device makers at Build 2014 on Wednesday, the reality is the game of “catch up” is still on. And for this race, that’s not likely a gold medal strategy.
After a flawed firmware update made the rounds in December for Microsoft’s Surface Pro 2, the company has a fix available to address battery drain and other problems.
It’s been a long wait, but the HP Omni 10 Windows tablet with full HD screen is here. The slate has one of the fastest Atom chips available and retails for $399. A keyboard attachment would make this tablet a bit more compelling.
Let’s be honest: Windows 8 has been fraught with problems. Completely overhauling a well-known desktop interface versatile enough for mobile has left…
Dell has a pair of new relatively low-cost tablets, the Dell Venue 8 Pro and Venue 11 Pro. The “pro” designation means full Windows 8.1 starting at $299; the company has no plans to refresh its Windows RT tablets.
