Rumors

It is not exactly a hidden secret that Microsoft is rebranding its business orientated Lync platform to the more accessible Skype for Business. The rebranding had already begun a few months ago and soon after, hints that a Windows Phone app was on the way as well. In fact, during a recent Reddit AMA, members of the Skype for Business team at Microsoft dropped some significant signs an app was being tested.

Now, a private report to Windows Central claims the planned release date for this app is Friday, May 15. The report goes on to tell us that this app is ahead of the iOS and Android versions, which are still being worked on though there is no ETA for their release just yet.

The Surface 3 is barely out the door yet, and talk of the Surface Pro 4 is inevitably around the corner. To our knowledge, no one is expecting this device until later this year when Windows 10's big marketing push begins. After all, the Surface Pro 3 is doing well, and the Surface 3 compares favorably as an alternative to that device.

However, Chinese tech site 36kr has come across some possible specifications for the next gen Microsoft 2-in-1. Although I often pass on such reports, this one has caught my interest for a few reasons.

File this one under wishful thinking, but Elephone is evidently working on a new flagship device. The alleged phone vaunts a QuadHD (2560 x 1440) display, 4GB of RAM and a 20.7-megapixel camera (Sony's IMX230 sensor). Powered by an Intel processor and boasting a fingerprint scanner, the phone runs Windows 10 for mobile.

A version with Android 5.0 Lolipop was also shown, although it is not clear if these are two separate versions of the phone or a more unlikely dual-boot scenario.

Windows Central has learned that Verizon Wireless in the US is still picking up the Nokia Lumia 735 mid-range smartphone, tentatively scheduled for a May release.

Windows Central first reported that Verizon would be grabbing the Lumia 735 back in September of 2014. By October, however, our sources had reported that the phone was delayed until "early 2015". Later in November, the phone was spotted passing through the FCC with Verizon's LTE bands, solidifying the intention of the carrier to stock the smartphone.

Up until recently, we had written off the Lumia 735 as coming to Verizon. Now, people familiar with the matter have informed us that the Lumia 735 is estimated for a May release.
