Microsoft has shown off the final build of Windows 10 Mobile, launching the operating system on two new Lumia devices that are set to hit the market soon.
V3 had the chance to try out the new version and, judging by the interest shown by V3 readers, there are clearly some out there keen to get their hands on a Windows 10 Mobile smartphone.
Raspberry Pi also had a busy week after unveiling its cheapest ever board, at just $5, about £4. The Raspberry Pi Zero continues the organisation's efforts to make computing fun, educational and easy, and early sales suggest it has another hit on its hands.
Finally, the annual Black Friday and Cyber Monday online shopping events saw another flurry of spending at major retailers, but shoppers were urged to proceed with caution to avoid being caught by scams and fraudsters.
