Can we have more leaks by the modern day equivalent of court sketch artists please?
Aping the style of the 'Courtroom Sketch Artist' beloved by news organisations around the world, the latest leaked look at OnePlus' upcoming smartphone - the OnePlus 2 - takes the form of a pencil sketch of the final product.

My long term review of the Galaxy S6, as it takes on the Galaxy S6 Edge. Was Samsung right to release two handsets, and which would I recommend? In the end the decision was an easy one...
The Galaxy S6 is a key handset for Samsung, fighting many commercial battles. The one I find most interesting, the battle against its own brother, the Samsung Galaxy S6 Edge. Faced with almost identical handsets after months of use,, which of the two would I pick up as my regular day-to-day handset?

If Apple has the technology to remove the home key and put everything on the screen/digitzer combination, it should do so as quickly as possible.
Apple is set to remove the home key from the iPhone. Good, says Ewan Spence, it can't happen soon enough.

While the retirement of Stephen Elop and the leadership reorganisation at Microsoft hit the news last week, it was the changes to OneNote that really promoted the ;cloud first mobile first' vision of CEO Satya Nadella last week.
This week's reorganisation of the leadership team at Microsoft by CEO Satya Nadella is one more step away from a hardware-led Redmond towards a company focused on delivering the best possible software, no matter the platform. That said, there was another moment that was even more telling than the press statement on the ins and outs of the senior staff.

Is Google getting a bit jumpy over Microsoft's cloud services? With new splash screens on cloud-based Google apps, there's a renewed emphasis on the Google brand on every's Android device.
Along with a tweak in the application design guidelines, Google has updated its own applications for Android with a subtle graphical tweak to remind users just who the driving force behind the ecosystem actually is. Not only are splash screens now in Android, Google is making immediate use of them in a defensive move against other cloud providers such as Microsoft.

Continuing its ’cloud first, mobile first’ strategy, Microsoft has released its top level suite of Office Apps for Android. Previously available in a ‘preview’ format, today’s release gives Word, Excel, and PowerPoint full application status on Android. Expect more movement in the cloud from Redmond over the next few months.

Samsung looks set to release another iteration of the S6 family, a slightly bigger, slightly slower version of the S6 Edge called the S6 Plus. Why would you go for such a narrow segment of the market when the Galaxy Note 5 is just around the corner?
New leaks tell us more about the Samsung Galaxy S6 Plus. What they don't tell us is why the South Korean company is segmenting the market and diluting the marketing efforts around its key handsets.

It's good to be writing 'Nokia' and 'new smartphone' in the same sentence again. Even better to see that the timing is as I predicted many years ago, and Nokia are going with a relevant business model, suitable for 2016's cut-throat smartphone market.
Nokia CEO Rajeev Suri has announced the Finnish company's intention to return to the smartphone market in 2016. Speaking to Manager Magazin in Germany, the 47 year-old executive noted that Nokia would design the new handsets, and then licence the designs and Nokia name.
