Microsoft is gradually pushing out Windows Phone 8 updates, but the company says the “next release” won’t be available until the holidays. In a Windows Phone job posting, Microsoft reveals that it’s completing its current release, with the “next release targeting the holiday of this year.” Microsoft has remained quiet about its plans for any future Windows Phone releases, opting this year not to hold its usual press conference at Mobile World Congress.
Another recent job posting revealed that the company is working on Windows Phone Blue, a release that will likely become Windows Phone 8.5. Codename Blue is an internal effort at Microsoft across a number of products and services to push for further integration. Windows Phone 8 is…
The little Android-based gaming console that could is in on track for March as promised for Kickstarter backers, but the public launch in June looks to be an equally splashy affair with retail support from some of the biggest U.S. chains. OUYA announced today to backers that it would be selling the console to the general public beginning in June at Amazon, Best Buy, Target and GameStop.
Pre-orders begin today for retail partners (they’re currently live at Best Buy, Amazon and Target), with pricing set at $ 99.99 for the console and one controller. Additional controllers are available as well, for $ 49.99 each (the console supports up to four controllers at one time.
OUYA founder Julie Uhrman sat down with the Wall Street Journal to discuss the upcoming launch and some of the details around it, laying out that Kickstarter backers would get their units first, followed by pre-order customers who ordered through the OUYA website in April, and then wide retail release including physical store presence beginning in June. She reiterated some of the details around launch day content previously announced, including the fact that there will be around 200 titles coming to OUYA as of right now, with Final Fantasy 3 one of the premiere titles from launch partner Square Enix, which will feature exclusive content.
Uhrman also revealed that part of the funds the company raised on Kickstarter are going towards directly supporting game development. “There are games that we are supporting today,” she said, but she remained mum about any specific software OUYA itself was backing for the platform. Uhrman also said that while she couldn’t reveal specifics about how many pre-orders the console currently has, the number made since the Kickstarter campaign definitely exceeds the 68,000 backers it picked up during the crowdfunding effort. That, she told the WSJ, was a key factor in attracting big retail partners.
OUYA has come a long way from its origins as a project many were skeptical would ever be anything other than a vaporware dream. The company shipped out its developer units on time, and then worked to redesign the controller in response to user feedback about ergonomics, components used and control location. Now, it looks poised to deliver on its original timeline and hit full scale production shortly after. It’ll be well worth watching how the OUYA competes with this year’s crop of new consoles from players like Sony, Microsoft and Nintendo, since we’re in a period of transition for each of those companies.

It will become a heck of a whole lot easier to get your hands on a customer light-field video camera. The Lytro, that marvel of post-picture-taking-focusing, is finally increasing its reach well beyond the boundaries of its very own website. The camera will be hitting Amazon and Greatest Buy and Target’s sites come October 9th. That exact same day, Canadians will have the ability to pick the lipstick-shaped device up through Future Store, followed by retail availability in Canada on the 10th. In mid-October, it’ll be hitting stores in Singapore and Hong Kong, swinging back around to the States in November for accessibility in CityTarget shops in select areas.

Now that Ceton has pushed its Friend mobile apps for Windows Media Center out the door, our attention returns to the hardware we got an appearance at during CES. A post from the company indicates the Echo extender has actually passed FCC and CE accreditations, with alpha tests under method. If you’re not in position to borrow a unit from the house of a worker, your next option to get one will come when the beta begins. The 1,000 applicants accepted must obtain ordering information around the end of this month before hardware ships on October, which, if there are no delays, might suggest general availability as quickly as November. Still awaiting word on that slick 6 tuner Q DVR? So are we, but an update, along with final specifications for the Echo variation 1, are promised at the end of the month.

If we were making a listing of frightening air-borne war machines, this would most likely rank near the top. You undoubtedly won’t wish to be targeted by the Fire Shadow, however from the safety of a web browser, it’s impossible not to admire the craft’s versatility. Made by French developer MBDA, the Fire Shadow missile is created to strike a stationery or moving item on command. However unlike some other UAVs, this ingenious rig can stay airborne for up to 6 hours prior to it’s assigned to damage a large automobile (and its occupants) from a nearly vertical position of attack. Tipping the scale at less than 440 pounds (about 200 kgs), it has an array of approximately 62 miles (100 kilometers) and is explained by MBDA as being “inexpensive price.” The British Army is said to have actually taken delivery of the missile in March, and will certainly begin testing in Sweden later this year, but you can easily see it action today in the demo video recording after the break.

If you were planning to swing by your local Target to buy a Kindle some time soon, you may want to add a little pep to your step. An inside source told The Verge that Amazon’s line of Kindle e-readers and tablets would soon disappear from Target’s store shelves, due to an unspecified “conflict of interest.”
Sales of Amazon’s hardware hasn’t dried up just yet though — that same source sent along an internal memo that points to May 13 (i.e. Mothers Day) as the point after which store stock would no longer be replenished.
Though there’s no official word on why the split is taking place, the rationale behind it must be a doozy. After all, Target was tapped as the first brick-and-mortar retailer to offer Amazon’s e-readers and has been slinging Kindles for just over two years now (even ahead of more gadget-friendly stores like Best Buy). Before that, Target also spent a long time leaning on Amazon to power their e-commerce offerings — from 2001 to 2011, to be more specific.
It’s also worth noting that Target referred to the Kindle Fire as their best selling tablet during Black Friday 2011, a factoid that Amazon placed front and center in their exultory press release. So what gives?
As it turns out, Apple may have a hand in this situation — The Verge notes that Apple recently inked a deal with the red-tinted retailer to launch 25 mini-stores within existing Target locations. Somehow, that doesn’t strike me as being the deciding factor, especially considering that Apple and Amazon (not to mention Kobo and Barnes and Noble) products have managed to co-exist just fine on Target’s shelves for years. Still, the possibility exists that Amazon bristled at the notion of Apple products getting more visibility than theirs despite Amazon’s considerable history with Target.
I’ve reached out to both Target and Amazon for an official comment, but neither could comment at time of writing.

Since Target stores began selling Amazon’s Kindle line back in 2010, the devices have always appeared to do well; the Kindle Fire was even the retailer’s best-selling tablet during Black Friday last year. It appears that’s about to change, however, with a source telling us that the company is going to stop carrying the line of products due to a “conflict of interest.” According to an internal Target memo we’ve received, the company will be removing Amazon hardware from its locations starting this month. Certain accessories will remain in stock, but shipments of Kindles themselves will cease as of May 13th.
