Continuity. It's a word you are likely to hear a lot of from Apple over the coming weeks and months. But what does it mean, and why should you care? Seen in the bigger picture, it is the move by Apple to connect all your devices together. Whether that's... >>

Nokia Lumia 830 review

By 16 October 2014

The Nokia Lumia 830 is one of the last smartphones to bear the Nokia brand name ahead of Microsoft's takeover of the company. This last of the Nokia breed isn't a flagship powerhouse either, instead the Lumia 830 is the watered-down version of the top-spec... >>
