Nokia Android watch, or just some abandoned prototype

Interesting news out of China today, as a strange Nokia device has been photographed for our speculating pleasure. CtechCN is reporting that “microblogging users” @monkeybigtreasure (priceless) shared pics of the Nokia device, claiming it is a smartwatch. It's interesting, but we have our doubts.

Microsoft looks towards HTC for dual-boot Android and Windows Phone option

Dual-booting Android smartphones are far from common at this point. We have seen some solutions presented, but they are aftermarket and likely only used by the geekier crowd. One dual-boot example includes the MoDaCo.SWITCH which allows HTC One and Galaxy S 4 users to bounce between stock Android and Sense/TouchWiz. Well, if Microsoft has their way, it looks like we may see something with Android and Windows Phone.

GALAXY S 4 under attack in latest Windows Phone commercial

Sigh. I don't even know where to start with this one.

Yes the budget friendly 521 and it's 1 GHz dual-core processor and low price is being compared to the king of all Android phones. It's pretty comical so take a peek below.

Switch to Windows Phone app greeted by Android mob with pitchforks

A few days back we mentioned that Microsoft was planning to release a "Switch to Windows Phone" app. While we certainly aren't planning to leave Android, we do have to admit we were a bit curious to see just what the app would do. Well, at risk of giving the big spoiler in the beginning -- you cannot do all that much without actually having a Windows Phone in front of you. That said, the app launches with a splash screen and you are immediately taken to a rather long EULA.
