Microsoft has done everything to keep the Windows Phone brand afloat, at least before the Windows 10 officially launches. However, most smartphone users still prefer the more mature systems of iOS and Android.
However, for consumers who are interested in phones with big displays, and cheap price tags, this may be the best option to be available soon in the vast Chinese market.
According to a report by Phone Arena, a virtually unknown Chinese manufacturer is rumored to announce a brand new device, dubbed Ramos Q7. more >>
Last year, everyone thought we have seen the last of Nokia as its mobile division was swallowed whole by Microsoft in an attempt to improve its Windows Phone lineup. The Redmond giant soon rebranded new Nokia Lumia phones into Microsoft Lumia, eradicating the last traces of the once-strong mobile device maker.
However, the introduction of the Nokia N1 Tablet to more markets outside of China has sparked some hope that the Finnish company would rise from the ashes and finally take Android's side.
According to a report by Android Authority, there may be rumors that Nokia would soon manufacturer smartphones beginning in 2016, but the mobile company itself stated that it would not build phones next year. more >>
The partnership of Cyanogen and OnePlus began last year with the announcement of the OnePlus One Android "flagship killer".
Unfortunately, OnePlus' sales plan did not work quite well as it frustrated consumers more instead of keeping them interested. As for Cyanogen, the Android developer has also been looking to expand its market when it completed a deal with Micromax in India.

A 4-month-old baby was rescued from a destroyed building in Bhaktapur, Nepal, on Wednesday, after being buried alive nearly 22 hours after the earthquake hit the country, while a 28-year-old man who had given up hope of being found was also rescued after surviving 80 hours under rubble.
The baby boy, named Sonit Awal, was reported to be in stable condition, miraculously without any internal injuries. His rescue has brought hope and good news to the area flattened by a 7.8 point earthquake that has killed over 5,000 people and could possibly have killed close to 10,000.
"I had some hope but by yesterday I'd given up," Rishi Khanal, the adult man who was also rescued, told the The Associated Press. "My nails went all white and my lips cracked. I was sure no one was coming for me. I was certain I was going to die. There was no sound going out, or coming in. I kept banging against the rubble and finally someone responded and came to help. I hadn't eaten or had anything to drink so I drank my own urine." more >>

Finnish manufacturer Nokia surprised the technology industry when it announced its first ever Android-powered tablet. Given the conditions of the Microsoft-Nokia deal, the phone manufacturer is not allowed to release any devices until the next couple of years.
However, the N1 Tablet is a special case because everything – from manufacturing, distribution, and even marketing – is handled by Foxconn. As a result, the Nokia N1 Tablet was available initially in China alone.
That might change in the next few weeks. more >>
