  • The cancelled 3D Touch-toting Lumia McLaren gets full review

    Microsoft and Nokia's cancelled Lumia McLaren handset is perhaps one of the most disappointing stories in the history of the Windows Phone platform.

Sure, there are cars with more power, like the all-conquering Bugatti Veyron, but there’s something about a McLaren with 903bhp that tickles my senses. It’s probably because of...
