Microsoft takes a mulligan with Windows 8.1

Windows 8 landed in the rough, but Microsoft gets a second shot with the release later this month of Windows 8.1. For the past few weeks, I've been testing out the consumer preview on both a premium touchscreen laptop and a smaller, cheaper tablet. Is it enough to get Windows back in the game?

HP EliteBook Folio 9470m review

The EliteBook Folio 9470m is a well-made ultrabook with a particularly good keyboard and touchpad. We like the removable battery and optional battery slice, but would prefer a higher screen resolution across the range. Windows 8 fans will also note the absence of a touchscreen option.

Sweating the details - everywhere in the world

There are so many things about Windows Phone that are effortlessly delightful, from the clean layout to the proper font to the smooth animations to the only touchscreen keyboard I can actually type on. (Although, having tried both US and UK phones, I'm disappointed that the US keyboard is far better at autocorrection, particularly when I hit the 'b' key between two words instead of the space - a UK phone never corrects that, a US phone gets it right every time.

Windows Phone 7; am I holding it right?

I haven't noticed this so consistently with any other touch smartphone, but with both the models of Windows Phone 7 handsets I've had my hands on, I've had to be touching both the case and the screen for the screen to work as a touchscreen. Put it down on the chair, or the desk next to me and press the screen - nothing happens.

Acer T231H touchscreen monitor

With Windows 7 adding much-improved support for touchscreen input over its predecessors, it's perhaps surprising that there hasn't been more activity in the touchscreen monitor market, especially at the lower end of the price range. Acer hopes to rectify this with its latest 23in.

Good news for enterprise users of Windows Mobile devices comes to us today at the Mobius 2009 event.

Good news for all of you touchscreen Windows Mobile owners though as Opera announced the release of the Opera Mobile 10 for Windows Mobile today.

Hands-on with the Sprint Samsung Intrepid Windows Phone

A few new devices launched with the Windows Mobile 6.5 operating system roll out on October 6th. One QWERTY messaging-focused device that launched on Sprint is the Samsung Intrepid. The Intrepid is the successor to the Samsung Ace and is a touchscreen device in a forward facing QWERTY form factor, similar to a BlackBerry device. Most all of the specs of the Samsung Intrepid are quite good, but the low resolution 320x240 QVGA kills the whole experience for me since every device I now have has much higher resolution and I can never go back to something with this low of resolution. The Samsung Intrepid is priced on Sprint at $150 so it is quite reasonable for a fully functional Windows Phone.

HTC Touch2

HTC's Touch2 has a relatively small screen and lacks an accelerometer. However, it's Windows Mobile 6.5 that really lets the side down.
