The Mirabook is a shell of a laptop that can be powered by your Galaxy S8, Windows 10 Mobile, or Huawei Mate 10

Microsoft’s Windows 10 Mobile may not be doing extremely well, but it has a small community of devout fans. The company managed to attract a lot of them with the productivity capabilities of its Lumia devices — the Continuum feature, for example, was an awesome jump forward for the mobile world when it was introduced in 2015.

Quick reminder — Continuum is the feature, which lets you plug a monitor, keyboard, and mouse to your phone and use it as you would use a desktop PC, albeit limited to Windows native apps. This may sound familiar to Samsung’s DeX and Huawei’s …

Check out the official trailer for PlayerUnknown's Battlegrounds' mobile version: PUBG with style

Guess what, battle royale fans, the official trailer for the mobile version of the wildly-popular PlayerUnknown’s Battlegrounds free-for-all gunfest has just arrived.

Chock-ful of content that’s not even in the base PC game yet, the trailer is a rather cinematic take on what a regular PUBG match would look like if it was directed by Michael Bay himself (sans the tons of aimbots and wallhackers that break the game). Sadly, no gameplay has been included in the trailer thus we can’t really see what the current state of the mobile port of the battle royale is yet, but what we get to …
