Everybody knows the internal storage figures advertised by gadget manufacturers aren’t the same as the actual user-accessible space. It’s been this way since forever, and after installing your Windows or Linux on a PC, similar shrinkage goes down. The problem with Android OEMs is they don’t seem to know when to stop.

Talk about unorthodox cross-promotion. Microsoft is currently plugging the ultra-low-cost HP Stream 7 tablet alongside the premium Surface Pro 3 “laptop replacement”, bundling the two at the price of one.
Unveiled less than a month ago, the newest budget-minded mid ranger with Windows Phone 8.1 pre-loaded is just about ready for global takeoff in 5 and 5.7-inch configurations.
A new wave of Surface Pro 3 promotions has hit Microsoft’s US online store, and for the most part, the deals are matched or even undercut by Amazon.

Basically acknowledging it’s not that big of a deal, Microsoft has “unveiled” a tweaked Nokia Lumia 635 by simply adding 1 GB as a RAM option on the phone’s dedicated webpage. No fancy press event, no MWC presentation, not even a short blog post.
Who doesn’t like Microsoft’s Office 365 software plus services package? It combines the unrivaled productivity of Redmond’s celebrated Office apps with the convenience of cloud storage and Skype video chat.
The moment all Windows Phone fans have been feverishly waiting for is here, but bad news first, it’s not easy or very comfortable to try out the platform’s latest iteration. Windows 10 for Phones isn’t just buggy and instable, it’s also available squarely for a handful of mid-range devices.
