No, this isn't a phone. It's not even a 'communicator' in the purest sense, since the LTE version hasn't appeared yet. But the Surface Go is a half way house between a smartphone and a full-on laptop or even a 'Pro' hybrid. Paired with a phone (to provide mobile bandwidth), the Surface Go is quite a lot of computing power and familiar interface in a surprisingly small and light package, offering something different from traditional Macbooks, laptops, even Chromebooks now, and letting you bring the power of a traditional Windows PC everywhere you go.
Available to buy today* is the Wileyfox Pro, a new Windows 10 Mobile-native smartphone aimed unashamedly at security-and-budget-conscious businesses. Everything's aimed in this direction, from an OS that doesn't have time wasters like Snapchat or trendy games, but is rock solid in terms of security schedules, to 'old fashioned' hardware features like a replaceable battery, microSIM support and a headphone jack. Ahead of my exclusive full review, here's an initial image gallery.
Possibly the most unusually timed gallery ever put on AAWP, this is the Alcatel IDOL 4 Pro, brand new in Europe, a Windows 10 Mobile flagship in mid-2017, against all the odds, or at least against the perception of the tech media. Following an (initially) one carrier, USA-only release in late 2016, we now have a tweaked version for the rest of the world, here in full retail form.
It's true that this gallery is somewhat out of time - the 'Alcatel IDOL 4S with Windows 10' has been out for T-Mobile in the USA since November 2016 and available SIM-free in the USA generally for around a month. However, AAWP is based in the UK and we've had no access to this new Windows 10 Mobile flagship... until now. Guest contributor (and ex-pat) Anthony Fear lives in North America and brings us an initial IDOL 4S gallery, ahead of more detailed review coverage.
Following on from our first four review parts and various features on the HP Elite X3, we now have the production Lap Dock in house - here's our annotated image gallery of the latter. Of course, there will be a full review along very shortly - after enough time 'on the road'!
Following on from our first four review parts and various features on the HP Elite X3, for completeness I also wanted to put up an annotated image gallery of this Windows 10 Mobile flagship. It's an impressive beast from any angle - and I include quite a few below.

This flagship device for Windows 10 Mobile is a successor to the Lumia 925 and 930 and has a 5.2" QHD AMOLED screen, a 20-megapixel camera with triple LED flash, and a 3000 mAh battery.
