The NYPD has to scrap the 36,000 smartphones it gave cops over the past two years because they're already obsolete and can't be upgraded, The Post has learned.

The city bought Microsoft-based Nokia smartphones as part of a $160 million NYPD Mobility Initiative that Mayor Bill de Blasio touted as "a huge step into the 21st century".

In 2014. They bought these in 2014.

In 2014.

RE: MS Advertising

MS is advertising the hell out of its Surface devices on UK TV at the moment. They use so called designers etc that people probably have never heard of to show glossy over saturated pictures of 'stuff' and say 'I could never do that on my Mac'. Mac's could never do pen annotation but hey, this is marketing so anything goes.

I am beginning to wonder if this is their final fling before pulling the plug on the whole surface thing?
