Windows Phone 8.1 is around the corner for general release and with it, Samsung is bringing a new camera app. It's not secret that Windows Phone 8.1 unlocks a few advanced features in the camera, including slow motion recording and video editing. Samsung evidently is not letting Nokia get all the glory as their new Camera app is sitting on the Store, ready to be downloaded.

The ATIV Camera app from Samsung looks to be full featured, including such options as Auto, Beauty Face, Best Photo, Best Face, Rich Tone (HDR), Eraser, and Night Shot. For video recording there are Smooth motion, Slow motion and capturing still images from recorded video.

4K monitors could be about to get a whole lot less expensive as Intel has announced a partnership with Samsung to produce units retailing this year for $399.

Having been leaked a bunch recently, Verizon has now made its latest Windows Phone 8 device official by putting the Samsung ATIV SE up for pre-order. The price? If you're buying without a contract you'll be looking at $599.99, which jumps down to $199.99 on a 2-year agreement. Verizon Edge customers get it for $25.22 a month. Better still, for a limited time you could actually get two of them on Verizon's buy one get one free promotion!

We're looking forward to a handful of new devices this month. Nokia should have two - the Lumia 630 and the Lumia 930. Samsung is the other OEM expecting to put out a new Windows Phone handset. That's the ATIV SE and is one we've been watching for sometime. However, the specs of the phone have remained somewhat elusive. That changes today.

Advertisements come in all shape and form. Ads that highlight the strengths of your products are generally the one most people like. Though companies like Microsoft, Samsung, Google and Apple are all guilty of taking the ‘attack ad’ approach. Most of the time those types of ads are a little hard to watch and come off as petty. Here’s a new one from Samsung that just induces all sorts of cringe.

As we get closer to the official unveiling of Windows Phone 8.1 we’ll start to see more and more handsets with the updated OS leak. We’ve seen a few from Nokia and an offering from Samsung.

An upcoming Windows Phone 8.1 handset slated for Verizon later this year.

In case you still didn’t agree that Windows Phone is the third ecosystem in the smartphone industry, the latest validation comes from comScore’s report of the U.S. smartphone subscriber market share ending January 2014.

While Blackberry's market share is on the decline, Microsoft held steady and found themselves holding the third spot in the latest survey behind Android and Apple.

Google and Samsung have joined Chinese mobile phone manufacturers in expressing concerns to Chinese courts about Microsoft's purchase of Nokia. Redmond is set to absorb Nokia's phone business for 7.2 billion dollars, integrating the division responsible for Lumia, Asha and X device families. The reasons behind this move are fears that the deal will result in higher patent licensing costs.

When it comes to Mobile World Congress, there are always a few big stories that dictate the discussion. Whether they are flagship phones or company mergers or just new tech in general, someone steals the show.

For 2014's MWC, that would be Samsung. In research performed by social media listening platform Synthesio, they claim that Samsung was "mentioned 1,246,000 times, or in 44.2% of all online conversations". That number was only followed by Nokia, who were mentioned in 586,200 online conversations, or 20.8% of the time. That's second, but a distant one.

Nokia trolls the Samsung Galaxy S5

Besides the Nokia X, you don’t find much news on here related to Android. But we couldn’t pass up on this jab that Nokia made towards Samsung’s new flagship device – the Galaxy S5. The Galaxy S5 is Samsung’s newest model running Android 4.4.2 on a 2.5 GHz quad-core processor. It has a 5.1-inch display and a 1920 x 1080 resolution. It also has a fairly uninspiring design and is being lamented for not being too much better than the Galaxy S4, its predecessor. Which made it the perfect target for Nokia to take poke at. Check the image they tweeted out below.

A real quick analysis of today’s announcements by Microsoft, specifically in regards to Windows Phone, shows that Microsoft is loosening the belt on their mobile OS. Back when Windows Phone 7 Series was announced at this very event four years ago, Microsoft had set very strict hardware requirements in an effort to keep the user experience consistent and ensure a quality experience.

That’s a very different approach from Android, which has a more ‘anything goes’ method for hardware, resulting in proliferation of Android throughout the mobile market. Apple, of course does the opposite: they only make their own hardware, so there are no manufacturer opportunities.
