microsoft courier foldable device“Foldable” is the key word for 2018 it seems since more and more companies have started coming up with dual display handsets that flex in the middle and other formats of folding devices. Now there’s a new device that drew our interest, but it’s actually not 100% new, since we’ve heard about it before: the Andromeda. Many people are confused by this name because it has been used a ton of times. We’ve got a Mass Effect game named like that, a Google platform that never came and a Microsoft project that was supposed to replace Windows 10 Mobile. Now there’s a new Andromeda, one that comes from Microsoft and it’s rumored to be a revival of the 2009 Courier e-reader-like slate...Stay up to date on Andromedia at our FORUM.

surface noteDepending on who you ask, we are either further or closer to the mythical Surface Phone, with some saying killing of Windows Mobile is just part of the incubation of a proper Andromeda-powered Windows 10 mobile PC. In June we posted a concept design by Ryan Smalley of what such a device may look like, based on numerous patents by Microsoft.  Since then we have seen an actual dual-screened smartphone, the ZTE Axon M, come to market by an OEM who did not wait for foldable screens to become practical, and instead simply went for the best design possible with current technology. Reportedly Huawei will be following in their footsteps with their own dual-screen folding design in 2018. Acknowledging the issues with flexible foldable screens, Smalley has now updated his concept in a device which seems similar to two Galaxy Notes joined with a hinge, with bezel-less screens making the fold as unobtrusive as possible...More on this possible Surface Phone is posted on our FORUM.

bad rabbitIt's the third major outbreak of the year - here's what we know so far. A new ransomware campaign has hit a number of high profile targets in Russia and Eastern Europe. Dubbed Bad Rabbit, the ransomware first started infecting systems on Tuesday 24 October, and the way in which organizations appear to have been hit simultaneously immediately drew comparisons to this year's WannaCry and Petya epidemics. Following the initial outbreak, there was some confusion about what exactly Bad Rabbit is. Now the initial panic has died down, however, it's possible to dig down into what exactly is going on. Organisations across Russian and Ukraine -- as well as a small number in Germany, and Turkey -- have fallen victim to the ransomware. Researchers at Avast say they've also detected the malware in Poland and South Korea. Russian cybersecurity company Group-IB confirmed at least three media organizations in the country have been hit by file-encrypting malware, while at the same time Russian news agency Interfax said its systems have been affected by a "hacker attack" -- and were seemingly knocked offline by the incident...Complete details are posted on our FORUM.

Huawei folding phoneAfter a wait of many years, it appears we are finally entering the age of the folding smartphone. ZTE was the first with the ZTE Axon M and showed that the concept can result in a practical and useful device. Now Huawei, the 2nd largest phone OEM in the world, has suggested that they may be next. Speaking to CNET, Richard Yu, CEO of Huawei’s consumer business group, said they are working on such a device. “We already have a working sample,” Yu said. Since practical folding screens are still not available, Huawei’s version is similar to the ZTE Axon M. “We have two screens,” Yu said. “But we still have a small gap [between the screens]. That’s not good, and we should get rid of that gap.”..We have more posted on our FORUM.
