A while back we had seen the multinational e-commerce site, Amazon.com, leak a product page touting the Acer Iconia W3 Windows 8 tablet; today, those rumors are confirmed.

The Taiwanese hardware manufacturer confirmed that the world’s first mini tablet running Windows 8.1 is real and will be headed to markets later this year. In addition, Acer confirmed the leaked specs on Amazon.com to be correct for the device; the tablet weighs 1.10 pounds, is .45 inches thin, sports a 12800 x 800 8.1 inch LCD display, 32 or 64 GB of memory, and is powered by an Intel Atom Clover Trail CPU.

Rudy Huyn working on unofficial Vine client for Windows Phone

116

If you’re familiar with Rudy Huyn, all-star developer behind such great apps as TVShow and Wikipedia, then you should be as excited as we are for his next project: an unofficial Vine client (www.vine.co). Vine is like what Twitter is to blogging, in that in allows you to post video clips but that are limited to just six seconds in length, forcing some unique creativity.

With unofficial Instagram and now Snapchat apps either available or soon-to-be, Vine appears to be likely the next big thing for developers to tackle. Since there is no evidence (or rumors) that Vine has anything in the works for Windows Phone, it’s up to our indie devs to fill the gap.

134

Kantar Worldpanel has released a new report that shows Android leading in the US, but both iOS and Windows Phone are growing at a faster rate. Both platforms experienced an increase in sales of 2.3 and 1.8 percentage points respectively, while Google's mobile platform was reported at 1.4 (year-on-year).

41

We've taken a look at Gibbage Cases before with the HTC 8X and recently the designer behind these 3D printed cases, Kevin Miller, expanded to offer similar cases for the Nokia Lumia 920.

The cases are skin like but don't completely cover the sides and backing of the Windows Phones. They offer a stylish alternative with minimal protection from scuff, nicks and dings. These cases may not tickle everyone's fancy but they can make your Nokia Lumia 920 stand out.

Asus reveals the Transformer Book Trio, a hybrid device that runs Windows 8 AND Android

113

Considering the Windows 8 ecosystem’s relative newness, Microsoft’s PC and tablet OS certainly has room to grow in the app department. Wouldn’t it be great if one machine could run both Windows 8 and another established tablet OS such as Android? The newly announced Asus Transformer Book Trio does just that, packing both operating systems into a dockable tablet model. One major caveat though: the Windows portion only works when docked.

That said, the BBC Trust has found that the corporation has not been biased against competing platforms to iOS.

Huawei’s Ascend W2 shows up in yellow, gets caught looking like a Nokia

61

Yeah, yeah, we know Nokia didn’t invent colors on smartphones, nor are we necessarily upset that more OEMs are embracing the bold and bright options that nature gave us, but we’re a tad suspicious here of the Huawei’s Ascend W2 that has now been revealed in yellow.

Truth be told, the device is not bad looking at all, except for all of that bezel. The W2 is supposed to be more high-end than the current W1, which itself is not a bad entry level device.
