Amazon's Black Friday Sale Begins: See What's On Offer

In The Windows 8 News



And The Survey Says…

The numbers are in and it looks like Microsoft’s Windows 8, the newest version of the operating system family, is off to a solid start.  Windows 8 was released on October 26 and has sold 40 million licenses in the past month.  In fact, that pace matches the early sales numbers of Windows 7 when it was released.   The quick start may not come as a big surprise, considering that the release date of October 26 came just before the holiday shopping season.


According to Tami Reller, Windows division financial chief, Microsoft is “very pleased with the customer reception so far.”  Reller also stated that operating system upgrades, where someone is upgrading to Windows 8 from an earlier version of Windows, are ahead of pace when compared to Windows 7 upgrades a few years ago.  Currently Microsoft is offering the upgrade for only $40 until January 31st.  The upgrade is available to anyone using Windows XP, Vista, or 7 on their PC.  The upgrade is also available to anyone who purchased a new Windows PC since June for only $15.

Right now it’s a bit early to tell how long 8′s momentum will carry, but many PC industry experts are predicting sales to eventually cool off over the first year and fall just behind Windows 7′s numbers.  Right now some of the bigger obstacles Windows 8 is facing are the lack of touchscreen PCs, people just adopting Windows 7, and a Windows Store app collection that is relatively small compared to its competitors.

Currently sales numbers for Microsoft’s new tablet, the Surface, have not been released.  The Surface also includes a scaled-down version of Windows 8 on its base models and will run a full version of Windows 8 and the higher-end models.

LG G5 Review In-Depth

Can LG take on the Galaxy S7 with a metal design, dual-cameras and an accessory slot? Here's our first LG G5 review, focusing on LG G5 design and build, LG G5 specs, LG G5 cameras and LG G5 software and apps.
Alongside the Galaxy S7, the LG G5 is one of the biggest phones (not literally) to launch in 2016 – and we're not just talking in the Android world. It's one of the heavyweights and LG will be looking to set the market alight with the G5's alternative and innovative modular design.

Oppo RX17 Pro Review: Hands-on

We had time with Oppo’s new RX17 Pro. It may be blue and purple but how different is it to the similar OnePlus 6T and is it worth your time?
Should I Buy The Oppo RX17 Pro?
Oppo has made a solid mid-range phone in the RX17 Pro. Build quality is premium, fast charging is industry-best fast and the display is of high quality.But the price is high at 599€ considering the OnePlus 6T with a better processor starts at £499/€529. And while functioning as it’s supposed to, ColorOS is still unrefined for the western market with far too many changes to Android to recommend over competitors.

BlackBerry KEYone Review

BlackBerry soliders on with a curious Android device that gets nearly everything right. It’s not for everyone though, in fact, it’s not really for anyone. But if you want a physical keyboard you will absolutely love it.
Should I Buy The BlackBerry KEYone?
But then, the KEYone is the best BlackBerry phone for years. It has (finally) successfully melded classic BlackBerry design with the necessary mix of Android and nostalgia. Importantly, the latter is only faint this time – this is a device for 2017, not 2007.If you love your iPhone or Samsung, you’ll hate the KEYone and won’t even consider buying it. But if you’ve made it to the end of this review, chances are you’re weighing up a buy. If you think you’ll love the BlackBerry KEYone, then I’m pretty certain you won’t be disappointed. You’re part of a minority, but finally BlackBerry has a phone for you that doesn’t force you to compromise.

Google Pixel Review

Not everyone wants a phone with a big screen, but most small-screen phones compromise on performance and cameras. Not so with Google’s latest flagship Android phone: Here’s our Google Pixel review.
Joining the ranks of the Pixel C and Chromebook Pixel are Google’s new Pixel phones. We’re reviewing the smaller 5in Pixel here, but you can read our separate Pixel XL review if you’re after a bigger phone.

Microsoft Surface Laptop 2 Review

Is there more to the Surface Laptop 2 than a lick of black paint? Find out in our full review.
Should I Buy The Microsoft Surface Laptop 2? The Surface Laptop 2 is a slightly odd one as it's not a huge upgrade on the original. That said, it comes in at the same price with a few upgrades and the new black colour.You get an 8th-gen Intel processor giving a nice performance boost as well as double the memory for the entry-level model. Battery life is a little down in our test but it's still a decent effort making this still one of the best laptop around.
