Unless Android dies off they don't stand a chance with a mobile OS of their own. posted on 16 Apr 2017, 12:00 5 23. yann (Posts: 500; Member since: 15 Jul 2010) Maybe you're right. posted on 16 Apr 2017, 13:14 1 25. adi90 (Posts: 554; Member since: 21 Dec 2015) Who cares ? posted on 16 Apr 2017, 07:25 2 2. MrElectrifyer (banned) (Posts: 3960; Member since: 21 Oct 2014) Even more reasons for me to appreciate my decision of never considering a windows phone...doubt even a Surface Phone would stand a chance of saving windows mobile if Samsung releases a Note 8 that materializes this their patent ( https://is.gd/Dqt6HK ) with full Windows 10 ARM. posted on 16 Apr 2017, 07:45 2 4. lyndon420 (Posts: 5234; Member since: 11 Jul 2012) Rumors of a surface phone have definitely died off.

Word has it that the update bringing the popular multi-window functionality to the phablet is now live. This update (surprisingly) made it to Verizon first, but now T-Mobile users can enjoy the Note II's multi-window system, which allows users to have two apps running concurrently in separate windows on the same screen .

Galaxy Note 3 comes with the awesome Pen Window mode that allows you to draw an approximately square or rectangular shape on the display, and an app of your choosing can be opened in that size, while you can still operate what's behind it, for some quick multitasking.The thing is that Samsung only allows its default apps to be opened like that, while your beloved third party applications are left out in the cold from the Pen Windows functionality.If you want to run any app like that, you'd have to root the Note 3 first, then follow the instructions below, courtesy of XDA-Devs member Xperiacle: … [Read more...] about How to open any app in Pen Window mode on the Galaxy Note 3
I feel like I always start a Surface review the same way, so here goes: I’ve always wanted Microsoft to build a laptop. A couple of years ago, Microsoft nearly did that with the Surface Book but it wasn’t enough. The Surface Book was top heavy, chunky, and it had a removable screen that I rarely detached. Like many Surface devices, it was different for the sake of being different, but it wasn’t the ultimate laptop that Microsoft claimed it would be. Microsoft has now finally created the laptop I’ve been waiting for, and it’s simply called the Surface Laptop.
