Ever since Microsoft announced the Surface tablet earlier this year, there have been rumors and speculations regarding Microsoft entering the smartphone hardware market as well.
Well, it seems they might. According to the sources at The Wall Street Journal, Microsoft is working with Asian component suppliers to test their own smartphone design. Having said that, the company is not sure if the device will go in mass production.
It is said that the device Microsoft is currently testing has a display between four and five inches. Also, according to The Verge, this device won’t be making an official appearance any time before the next year and is supposedly Microsoft’s ‘Plan B’ in case the existing Windows Phone 8 devices fail to make an impression upon the users.
This is certainly interesting news for Windows Phone fans, although we are not sure if the other hardware manufacturers feel the same way.

The rumored LG Nexus 4 / LG E960 Mako keeps talking about himself. After teasing us with a few images every other day, Belarusian website Onliner.by has now uploaded a full review of what has come to be known as the LG Nexus 4. After the some leaked camera samples by the Belarusian site Onliner.by, it’s time for a benchmark.
The Nexus 4 disappoints in the synthetic benchmarks department. The AnTuTu and Quadrant scores are way low for something with a quad-core Snapdragon S4 and 2GB of RAM under the hood and even slower than the scores of the international One X with the Tegra 3 processor.
All of this can be put down to this being a prototype device and things could improve considerably in the final version. That could also explain why this particular unit had just 8GB of internal memory. With the launch of the next Nexus being said to be on October 29, we don’t have to wait long to find out what the real deal would be like.
