It turns out, as per the President of Nokia China, that the company is actually going to fulfil many fanboys’ dreams, and will start churning out Android smartphones, likely manufactured in Sichuan, where Nokia’s R&D center will be relocated for good as well.

We know that Nokia toyed around with Android before, and even outed the N1 tablet with the green robot’s backing, but having actual Nokia Android phones is bound to cause some movers and shakers in the mobile world come 2016, so we can’t wait for further snippets on the matter.

Download Free Microsoft Office for phone or tablet

Microsoft is also offering a full version of Office designed specifically for phones and tablets for free! Just go to Google Play or the iOS App Store to download it.
People in the corporate world use Microsoft Office by rote, but that’s not the case in the small business market and the consumer market because of the expense. So Microsoft is trying to come up with a replacement business model and this is it.

Once you do the free download, you can run Office on your iPads, iPhones, Android phones, and Android tablets.

As a practical matter for the Androids, this will probably work better on the phablets and tablets, not the smaller Android screen phones. I have a phablet and my screen size is 6 inches or so and it displays very well.
This will be a big help for me. It used to be that I would get a lot of attachments that I would try to open up, and the screen on my phone would go blank. Now that problem will be solved for free.

Of course, in the desktop and laptop world, it’s still a king’s ransom to buy Office. If you want to save money in those environments, try OpenOffice.org for a free office suite. Or as an alternative, my wife uses Google Docs and loves it. It’s great for collaboration on a document or project among a few key players. Both options are free to use.
Free is a great price! Microsoft had come up with a new model because people weren’t paying for their bread and butter offering in the touch screen world.

The latter should appeal to owners of Motorola’s MAXX devices who seek to obtain new smartphone this year. The Lenovo S860 could support 24-hour talk time and it could even charge other smartphones. The powerful battery is paired with 2GB of RAM and quad-core processor.

Unfortunately, it doesn’t do LTE connectivity and comes with the slightly outdated Jelly Bean Android 4.2 OS. Nevertheless, Lenovo promises that the KitKat Android 4.4 update will arrive at some point. The 1.6Mp front-facing camera is ideal for video calls and there is also an 8Mp rear-facing camera.

The Lenovo S850 is a more affordable model with focus on lightweight glass thin construction and it has a reasonably large 5-inch display. Users could bet to get a quad-core processor. Photo buffs out there would also be happy to get 5Mp front-facing and 13Mp rear-facing camera. The Lenovo S660 rounds out the group with its 5-inch display, solid battery life and brushed metal construction. With its comfortable design and value-level price, the S66- slow in well under the S850.

Microsoft Office goes completely free for Android phones
