The latest on Windows 8.1 Update 2 and Windows 9

Microsoft Windows

Microsoft is said to be working on two new updates for their desktop operating system - Windows 8.1 Update 2 (also known as Windows 8.2) and Windows 9. There have been several rumors, reports and leaks which will lead up to the eventual release of these updates and we have put together all that is known so far.

Windows 8.1 Update 2 (Windows 8.2)

Windows 8.1 Update 2 is expected to be the next update for Windows. Microsoft released Windows 8.1 Update 1 in April, and reports suggest that the Windows 8.1 Update 2 will be released sometime between August and September this year.

It is currently not known what Microsoft plans to offer with Windows 8.1 Update 2, but we expect the software giant will continue its trend in making subtle improvements to the platform to make it more desktop friendly.

Windows 9

Meanwhile Windows 9 will be a major update to Microsoft's desktop platform and is rumored to arrive in April 2015. With Windows 9, Microsoft is expected to allow modern apps to run in a windows, on your desktop. You will also be able to pin modern apps to your Windows taskbar and quickly access them in windows. This will allow a more seamless experience for users across desktop and modern apps.

The classic Start Menu is also expected to return on Windows 9. The Start Menu was previously expected on Windows 8.1 Update 2 has now been pushed back to Windows 9. Microsoft hasn't explained why the Start Menu was pushed back, but we do know for sure that it will be returning. The Start Menu will allow Live Tiles to be pinned to it and can be seen in action in the following video

The lack of a Start Menu and Start Button was the center of controversy for Windows 8. Microsoft brought back the Start button with Windows 8.1.

Microsoft is also expected to be working on bringing Cortana from Windows Phone 8.1 over to Windows 9. In a recent article we discussed the possibility of Microsoft porting Cortana for Android and iOS, but it seems the company's main priority will be to bring the voice activated digital assistant to Windows Phone and Windows first.

Asus Transformer Book V

The Asus Transformer Book V is made up of three components. The tablet component features a 12.5 inch touch display, 128GB of internal storage and is powered by an Intel Core processor with 4GB of RAM. You can dock your tablet into its keyboard component turning it into a notebook, which adds 1TB of native storage to your device. The third component is an Android 4.4 KitKat smartphone which docks into your tablet. The smartphone features a 5 inch display, 64GB of native storage, an 8 megapixel rear camera, a 2 megapixel front camera, a 2500mAh battery and a 64-bit quad-core Intel Moorefield Atom processor with 2GB of RAM.

Toshiba introduces affordable Encore 2 Windows tablets, starting at $199

One of the biggest obstacles for Windows tablets to grow in popularity is their price. Luckily Microsoft plans to change this by introducing a special version of Windows to its manufacturers which will in turn allow them to drastically drop the prices of their tablets. Toshiba is one of the first companies to take advantage of this offer with their brand new Encore 2 tablets, which run full Windows 8.1 and start at just $ 199

The base model features an 8 inch display with a 1280 by 800 pixel resolution, 32GB of internal storage which can be expanded through microSD, a 5MP rear camera, a 1.2MP front facing camera and a quad-core Intel Atom processor with 1GB of RAM. There is a larger 10.1 inch model with nearly identical specs, which is priced at $269. Both tablets boast around 10 hours of battery life, which is decent for entry level tablets.

To achieve these low prices, the Toshiba Encore tablets run a special version of Windows known as Windows 8.1 with Bing. To the consumer, Windows 8.1 With Bing isn't much different from Windows 8.1. In a blog post, Microsoft claims Bing will be the default search engine for Internet Explorer on those devices, but that's true of any Windows tablet. The OS is installed by the OEM; consumers won't be able to buy or download Windows 8.1 With Bing directly.

More importantly, the tablets include a one-year subscription to Office 365. Previously bundling Office with Windows was an exclusive to Windows RT devices, and we are interested to see what the future holds for Windows RT with this move.

The Toshiba Encore tablets are just the first of many upcoming tablets to feature Windows with Bing. We expect several more manufacturers to announce their tablets over the next couple of weeks leading up to the big Computex trade show, which is expected to begin on June 3.

Microsoft Windows 8.1 Update 1 announced, coming on April 8 with desktop users in mind

WindowsMicrosoft has officially announced their first major update for Windows 8.1 at BUILD 2014. The new update introduces new features which closer bring the Modern UI experience and Desktop experience together by enabling desktop elements in the Modern UI for mouse and keyboard users.

Windows 8.1 Update 1 download leaked online ahead of release, here's what's new

Microsoft has been working on its first update for Windows 8.1 for some time now and we recently saw some of its features displayed on leaked screenshots. Now the Windows 8.1 Update 1 itself has been leaked and is available for download through various file sharing sites. Lets take a look at some of the new changes coming to Windows 8.1 in the near future

The leaked build is three weeks old, which means Microsoft will likely make more alterations before the final version of the the Update 1 is ready.

When Microsoft released Windows 8 back in 2012, the platform was designed with only touch-based devices in mind. Unfortunately the platform wasn't well received, since over 90% of the users still used desktops and laptops without touch displays.While Windows 8.1 greatly resolved these issues, it appears Update 1 takes that initiate one step further.

Here are a list of new features found in Windows 8.1 Update 1:

  • Metro apps have a title bar, with close/minimize buttons and the ability to “Split left/right” when you right-click it.
  • You can keep taskbar visible while using modern apps
  • Control Panel item in metro PC Settings
  • 200% and 250% DPI scaling modes added to control panel (in 8.1 RTM, to get these values you have to go “custom”), 250% is the default on screens with more than 1800 vertical lines
  • Shutdown button on the start screen*, doesn’t show on less than 8″ tablets to prevent accidental shutdown
  • Search button on the start screen*
  • Instead of metro bars (top and bottom) a context menu appears when you right-click an app on the start screen*
  • Pinning metro apps to desktop taskbar*
  • Internet Explorer Enterprise Mode

As we mentioned before, we hope that this will be the first step in Windows evolving to suite the type of hardware it is running on. While these enhancements appear on devices with mouse and keyboard support, only some of them will appear on smaller touch only devices. Share your thoughts below.

Microsoft Surface 2 - Video Review

The Microsoft Surface 2 is a significant upgrade over last year's Surface and comes packing a more affordable $450 price which includes 32GB of storage and a full 1080p HD display. Unfortunately Windows 8.1 RT still leaves users yearning for the full Windows experience.

The problem isn't with the Windows 8.1 RT platform itself, which is one of the best tablet platforms in the market. But by coming in so late to the tablet race, Windows RT users are left with a very small app catalogue. While iOS and Android users get to enjoy the latest games and updates, Windows RT is still left behind.

While Windows 8.1 RT on the Surface 2 does offer productivity, users may want to lookout for the upcoming Intel Bay Trail tablets which will arrive this holiday season running the full Windows 8.1.

However, if you are set on a new Surface tablet, you could still consider spending double the money to pick up the Surface Pro 2 or even get the original Surface Pro which costs a little more.

You can read a full review of the Microsoft Surface 2 on PhoneArena.

Microsoft Surface Pro 2 - Video Review

The Microsoft Surface Pro 2 is a powerful tablet which leaves most of its competitors in the dust. This comes as a result of its powerful 4th generation Core i5 processor under its hood. While some may argue that the Windows 8 platform is not mature enough to compete in the tablet market, we feel tablets like the Surface Pro will achieve the purpose they were mainly built for - productivity.

In terms of Software, the Surface Pro 2 runs Windows 8.1, the latest version of Microsoft's platform, which has evolved to meet the demands of fans and critics. While some may argue that the platform still takes a backseat to Android and the iPad in terms of app volume, we see the lineup on Windows 8 continue to grow.

Pricing unfortunately remains the biggest obstacle of the Surface Pro's popularity. Even though the Surface Pro 2 offers the power of an UltraBook, its still a tablet at heart and people tend to compare it to devices like the Apple iPad or the Google Nexus 10, instead of the MacBook Air.

However at $900 for the 64GB version of the Surface Pro 2, is still a pricey investment, more so when you tack on another $130 for the Touch Cover 2. So essentially, you’ll need to fork over $1,030 to snag yourself a hybrid device. Considering that ultrabooks deliver more versatility with their already included keyboards, additional ports, and larger (touch) screens, its hard to settle on the Surface as a replacement. Keep in mind though that the original Surface Pro has now been discounted to $699, making it much more alluring.

Still if you want the best of both worlds, which consists of the tablet form factor with an actual laptop/desktop OS, this is undoubtedly the thing for you. Best of all, as a daily PC driver, the Surface Pro 2 is compact enough to travel around with.

The Lumia 2520 runs Windows RT, and we are curious to see how Microsoft's ARM based platform performs when sold under Nokia's branding.

Nokia Lumia 2520 officially announced

Today is definitely a day of first for Nokia. Alongside the announcement of their first phablet, Nokia has also taken the covers off their first modern tablet - the Nokia Lumia 2520. While Microsoft's Surface tablets dont come with data connectivity, the Lumia 2520 proudly runs Windows 8.1 RT with 4G LTE for ultimate mobility.

The design is typical Nokia Lumia line, with thin polycarbonate housing that will be available in red, cyan, glossy white and mate black colors, and the housing is very compact at 267 x 168 x 8.9 mm with 615g of weight.

Nokia has also chosen to power their tablet with a 2.2 GHz quad-core Snapdragon 800, which is one of the most powerful mobile processors. The processor flaunting an Adreno 330 graphics and has 2GB of RAM. The device comes with a 10.1 inch full HD display which has a 1080 by 1920 pixel resolution and a record 650 nits brightness and sub-6% reflectivity on its display which should result in excellent outdoor visibility under sunlight.

The Lumia 2520 comes with only 32GB of internal storage. But you can expand it through the microSD slot if you want more storage space. You additionally have the SkyDrive cloud storage for backing up and accessing your files while you are on the go.

The camera on the Lumia 2520 has a 6.7 megapixel sensor with a Carl Zeiss lens and a wide f/1.9 aperture, which is the same camera found on the Nokia Lumia 720. It also has a 2 megapixel camera in the front for Skype video calling. Nokia has included some exclusive software like the Video Director, Nokia Camera, Storyteller app for Windows, which the camera can take advantage of. HERE Maps will also debut on Windows RT with the new Lumia tablet.

The device has a generous 8000 mAh battery under its shell, which amounts to up to 10 hours of continuous usage. We also have the boatload of radios - Wi-Fi, Bluetooth 4.0, A-GPS and even NFC thrown in, so compatibility with Nokia's Near Field communication accessories is guaranteed.

Nokia has designed a special keyboard cover accessory, which they call the Power Keyboard - "a unique wraparound cover that includes a fully functional keypad and gesture trackpad, which also provides five hours of extra battery life". The Power Keyboard comes with two full-size USB ports for full access to your productivity needs.

The Nokia Lumia 2520 will cost $499 and is set to arrive next month, in time for the holiday season. Since it comes with LTE connectivity it should appear on US carrier shelves, with Verizon and AT&T likely candidates to host the device.

Upcoming Windows 8.1 tablets with Intel's Bay Trail processors

Alongside the release of Windows 8.1 next week, there will also be a new lineup of tablets powered by Intel's latest Atom chip code-named Bay Trail. These tablets which will be priced between $299 and $350, include the Dell Venue 8 Pro, Toshiba Encore, and the Asus Transformer Book T100. More models are expected to ship in the coming months.

These tablets are mainly aimed at consumers looking to browse the web and consume media, much like the iPad, and offer more than eight hours of battery life with screen sizes starting at 8 inches. Manufacturers will include accessories with these tablets allowing them to be transformed into laptops for various productivity tasks. Since they are full Windows tablets, they will be able to run both legacy Windows desktop applications and modern Windows 8 applications.

These tablets are thinner and lighter than last generation Windows 8 tablets, thanks to the advancements on Intel's processor architecture. You could always consider the Microsoft Surface 2, if you are willing to put up with the lack of legacy desktop app support in the ARM based Windows RT. ARM processor is expected to be comparable on battery life and performance to Bay Trail.

The initial batch of Bay Trail tablets will have processors with up to four cores and 32-bit versions of Windows 8.1. Software issues have prevented the immediate release of 64-bit Windows 8.1 Bay Trail tablets, but they should come early next year.

Toshiba Encore

The Toshiba Encore was the first tablet to be announced with Windows 8.1 and Bay Trail. The tablet has an 8-inch screen, weighs about 17 ounces and is 0.4 inches thick. The screen displays images at a resolution of 1280 by 800 pixels, and the company says the tablet is good for Skype videoconferencing with features that include dual-array microphones.

Toshiba hasn't shared the battery life yet, but Intel claims Bay Trail tablets will offer more than eight hours of run time and weeks of standby.

The Encore has an 8-megapixel back camera and a 2-megapixel front camera. Other features include Micro USB 2.0, Micro HDMI, and MicroSD slots. The tablet also comes with Office Home and Student 2013.

Encore starts at $329.99 with 32GB of storage, though the Windows OS will take up a large chunk of the storage. It will be available in November through Toshiba’s website and retail stores.

Dell Venue 8 Pro

The Dell Venue 8 Pro features an 8 inch display with a resolution of 1280 by 800 pixels, is 0.35 inches thick and weighs about 14 ounces according to the company. 

The tablet starts at $299.99 with 32GB of storage, and includes a 1.2-megapixel front camera and 5-megapixel back camera, and a Micro USB 2.0 and MicroSD slots. 

The Venue 8 Pro  has a unique feature with LTE connectivity in the U.S. and 3G in other countries. Dell expects the tablet to start shipping in November, and will sell optional keyboard, case and stylus accessories for the device.

Asus Transformer Book T100

The Asus Transformer Book T100 features a larger 10.1 inch display compared to the other Bay Trail tablets, and is heavier at a little more than 19 ounces.

Asus claims the tablet offers 11 hours of battery life, which should beat the 8-inch rivals with smaller batteries. 

The T100 will be sold as a tablet, but come with a detachable keyboard for laptop functionality. As a laptop, the T100 weighs just under 2.5 pounds. The T100 is priced at $349 with 32GB of storage, and $399 for 64GB of storage. 

The screen displays images at a resolution of 1366 x 768 pixels, and the other features include MicroSD card and Micro USB 2.0 ports. The bundled keyboard has a USB 3.0 port.

If you are interested in the Asus Transformer Book T100, you can purchase it using the following link through Amazon. The tablet will start shipping on October 18.

Hp Omni 10

Last but not least we have the HP Omni, which has a 10.1 inch display and a 1920 by 1200 pixel resolution. This makes the Omni 10 the best screen among Bay Trail tablets so far.

HP is claiming a nine-hour battery life, and the company is offering accessories such as a charging dock and Bluetooth keyboard with the device. It will become available in November, and the company has not announced prices. But with the high-resolution screen, you should expect it to be priced above $400.
