BGR has learned from a reliable source that Microsoft is currently planning to release the company’s full Office suite for not only Apple’s iPad, but for Android tablets as well.

There’s just no getting around it: iPhone 5′s aren’t cheap. For most people, it’ll cost at least $199 with a two-year contract for a 16GB model. But U.S. regional carriers are sweetening the deal on the iPhone 5 with $50 discounts on all three iPhone models. Instead of $199 (16GB), $299 (32GB) and $399 (64GB), customers who sign two-year contracts with Appalachian Wireless, Cellcom or nTelos can pick them up for $50 less than what Apple (AAPL) and the three major U.S. carriers are selling them for. The same regional carriers are also selling the 16GB iPhone 4S for $49.99 with a two-year contract, or $50 less than Apple, AT&T (T), Sprint (S)
Google is seeking to block U.S. imports of Apple’s iPhone and iPad over 3G patents held by Motorola Mobility, Bloomberg is reporting.
UPDATE: Bloomberg is theorizing that due to a review of a previous ruling, Apple could face a ban on importing iPhones and iPads, but Google is not filing an injunction at this time.

Good news has come to light for app developers: according to a recent study from Localytics, app retention rates are improving, increasing 19% over the last year. The analytics firm notes that iPhone and iPad app publishers are achieving the greatest success, with retention rates 52% higher than those on Android. The number of users who used an app just once dropped over 15% since the firm’s last study, and those who used an app more than 10 times increased from 26% to 31%. The firm also found that the average
Hewlett-Packard (HPQ) is on a roll. The company unveiled a trio of ultra-portable Windows 8 machines late last month and then followed up with a trio of All-in-One Windows 8 PCs last week. Now, the company has announced a trio of upcoming Windows 8 notebooks alongside a number of business machines and accessories. Starting with the high-end HP ENVY m4 pictured above, this sleek Windows 8 laptop features the latest Intel Core i3 and i5 processors along with up to 8GB of RAM, as much as 1TB of storage and an in-built optical drive.

The latest YouGov report on smartphone brand perception and purchase intent is out, and this one is a keeper. According to the data, the proportion of BlackBerry owners planning to purchase a new BlackBerry (BBRY) within six months has rocketed from 18% to 43% since the spring of 2012. Over the same time period, the same number for iPhone owners has slipped from 92% to 85% while the number for Samsung (005930) Galaxy owners has ticked up from 46% to 53%. The interesting part here is how close the BlackBerry purchasing intent level is now to Galaxy’s level. One could argue that the iPhone slippage was unavoidable in the period after the iPhone
When Steve Jobs introduced the iPhone 4 and its stunning Retina display, he said it would set the standard for mobile displays for the following five years. Five years is a lifetime in the smartphone industry, but two years later it’s safe to say the iPhone’s screen is easily still a market leader â I would even go as far as to say no mobile display even comes close to matching the iPhone’s in terms of clarity. But as sharp as Apple’s (AAPL) screen is, it is quickly falling behind the pack in another
A recent report suggested Apple’s (AAPL) latest iPhone reclaimed the title of top-selling smartphone in the world last quarter, and the popular handset apparently maintained its momentum in the U.S. last month. Canaccord Genuity analyst T. Michael Walkley issued his monthly handset sales estimates for the month of February early Monday morning, and he found that Apple’s iPhone 5 was the best-selling smartphone at each of the three major U.S. carriers where the phone is sold.At AT&T (T), which sells more smartphones than another other U.S. wireless company, the iPhone 5 topped Samsung’s (005930) Galaxy S III and the Nokia (NOK) Lumia 920, which
