The iPad vs the Surface Pro.

Sales of the Surface have been disappointing in comparison to those of iPads and Android tablets, but that hasn't stopped Microsoft's Bill Gates from believing. On the contrary, Microsoft's part-time leader remains as confident as ever that his company's tablets will eventually surpass Apple's offering, claiming that the Surface is the answer to thousands of iPad users... more »

Back in March, rumors began spreading that Verizon would be releasing its own version of the Nokia Lumia 920 (so far exclusive to AT&T), which was dubbed the Lumia 928. Well, we can now confirm that the Lumia 928 page is up and running, though there’s nothing much described on it that you haven’t already seen in Vanity Fair or on a billboard. Yes, Verizon has decided to use print ads to let people know that the Lumia 928 will be arriving in their stores soon. Why print? I guess Verizon and Nokia want to maintain a thin shroud of mystery... more »
