  1. Microsoft Lumia DENIM​ Update Last night I decided to do an update to my Lumia 630, to my surprise the long awaited DENIM Update was finally here in preparation for the Windows 10 Upgrade... Many details are covered at the link mentioned above but one which I am quite happy about is the fact that now on Windows Phones.. We have the ability to create a personal WiFi Hotspot. This interests me a great deal as I will no longer have to buy another SIM Card and pay a data plan for my tablet.. Owning the phone for the first few months made me quite jealous and perturbed at the fact that iPhone user
  2. Anonymous is testing Airchat, a free communications tool for the world that uses only radio waves Lulz Labs Online hacktivist collective Anonymous has announced that it is working on a new tool called Airchat which could allow people to communicate without the need for a phone or an internet connection - using radio waves instead. Anonymous, the amorphous group best known for attacking high profile targets like Sony and the CIA in recent years, said on the Lulz Labs project's Github page: "Airchat is a free communication tool [that] doesn't need internet infrastructure [or] a cell phone netwo
  3. Seed Phone offers a unique way to converge multiple devices using a single smartphone A computer engineering student from the University of Cape Town has come up with a unique way to transform a smartphone into anything from a laptop to a games console. In an effort to eliminate the disjointed experience of using multiple devices across different platforms, Nick Rout developed Seed - a range of laptop, tablet, TV and console hub prototypes capable of converging around a single smartphone. "While our devices are individually really capable, using them together is quite disjointed," Rout tells
  4. I've been thinking, with all the revelations coming out about the NSA spying on all of us, maybe we've been going about reacting the wrong way. I mean, we all seem to fall somewhere on the spectrum of being upset about this, from the more mildly uncomfortable but resigning folks that are okay with the spying to those more militant about privacy. What if we're all just pissed that we aren't the ones getting to do all this sweet, sweet surveillance on everyone we know. Well, that's all changed, thanks to the makers of the mSpy software, which allows you to gift smart phones preinstalled with the
  5. By WPBar February 16, 2014 WPBar, who has been right about a lot of things Windows Phone 8.1 related, reports that we can expect the official version of the updated OS to reach us only between June and August 2014. At the same time we can also expect a wave of new devices running the OS. This corresponds to a similar release pace as Windows Phone 8, which was also widely leaked in Early 2012, but only hit devices around October 2012. The good news for enthusiasts however is that Microsoft has finally managed to get its Developer Preview program up and running, and WPBars sources confirm th
  6. By Quentyn Kennemer Feb 12th 2014 It’d probably be an understatement to suggest Microsoft is having trouble getting more developers to fill their apps store with the goods users are looking for. Unfortunately they seem to have found themselves in a classic “chicken or egg scenario” — users won’t come to the platform unless there are apps, but developers won’t develop apps if there are no users. There’s no shame in that problem, as Android suffered it very early on (though obviously quickly eradicated that with being the fastest growing mobile operating system of all time). Unfortunately for Mi
  7. By Paul Thurrott Feb. 14, 2014 Universal apps are a lie One of the more intriguing aspects of the recent Windows Phone 8.1 leak is that this platform might support the creation of so-called Universal apps, similar to those in iOS, that run across both tablets (Windows RT 8.1 in this case) and smart phone (Windows Phone 8.1). With due deference to the game "Portal," however, I can report that Universal apps are a lie. At least from what I can tell. To understand what I mean, you need to understand a bit about Visual Studio, Microsoft's awesome software development environment. In Visual Studio
  8. By Zach Epstein on Feb 12, 2014 at 9:49 AM When Samsung unveils its highly anticipated flagship Galaxy S5 smartphone later this month, it will likely be one of the most impressive handsets the world has ever seen. Rumors suggest it will have an amazing Super AMOLED display that measures 5.25 inches diagonally and packs 2K resolution for crystal-clear viewing. It will also supposedly feature either a cutting-edge quad-core Snapdragon chipset or Samsung’s own eight-core Exynos processor, as well as a huge battery, an impressive 16- or 20-megapixel camera and the latest version of the Android ope
  9. By Alex Colon 10 hours ago A recent report suggests that Microsoft is considering bring Android apps to Windows Phone. But isn’t it too soon to admit defeat? Microsoft is seriously considering the idea to bring Android apps to Windows Phone, according to a report from The Verge. It wouldn’t happen until Windows 9 is complete some time next year (at the earliest), but this would be a tremendous shift for Microsoft. And while it might prove positive for consumers in the short-term, it could ultimately spell trouble for Windows Phone as a viable platform in the future. It seems like a good idea
  10. By Hammad Saleem on February 12, 2014 04:10PM The moment has finally arrived. After countless number of leaks and speculation, the Nokia Lumia Icon has finally landed on the Big Red. The handset will hit retail on Verizon starting February 20th for $199.99 tied to a two-year contract, with the pre-orders kicking off today at the Microsoft store. Nokia Lumia Icon boasts a similar set of specifications as the flagship Lumia 1520 phablet from the Finns, but comes in a smaller form factor. Although we know pretty much all there is to know about the Nokia Lumia Icon, there might be a few of you
  11. By Lance Whitney 3 hours ago What surprises await the next version of Microsoft's mobile OS? One person with access to the Software Development Kit reveals a few tidbits. Windows Phone 8.1 and Windows RT will be able to share the same code, helping developers more easily create the same apps for phone and tablet. At least, that's the take from a round of leaked details. On Tuesday, a developer with access to the new Windows Phone 8.1 Software Development Kit (SDK) hopped onto Reddit to share several features headed for the new version. New Universal Apps templates will help developers bui
  12. By Daniel Rubino, Saturday, Feb 8, 2014 at 4:32 pm With yesterday’s all but obvious teaser for the Lumia Icon – otherwise known as the Lumia 929 – you would suspect that a launch date and announcement wouldn’t be too far off from now. Granted, expected dates have come and gone in the past, but now that Verizon stores are receiving inventory for accessories and Nokia US is tossing up videos, we’re much more confident this time around. The latest intel has the Lumia Icon due for availability on Thursday, February 20th. Verizon traditionally launches new devices on that day of the week, so that
  13. By Ina Fried 8, 2014, 9:00 AM PST Tim Cook has made it abundantly clear that Apple will be going into some new market segments this year. He said it on last month’s earnings call, and reiterated it this week in an interview with the Wall Street Journal. “There will be new categories and we’re working on some great stuff,” Cook told the Journal this week, adding, of course, “We’re not ready to talk about it.” Whatever it is Apple has cooking (and many expect a watch, or possibly a more serious entry in the television space), it can’t come soon enough. While smartphones continue to grow, most o
  14. by Peter Bright - Feb 9 2014, 12:00am AUSEST This article apparently is a response to "Analysis: Microsoft Must Kill Windows Phone And Fork Android" http://www.nsaneforums.com/topic/206052-analysis-microsoft-must-kill-windows-phone-and-fork-android/ Canning Windows Phone and using Android would be a huge mistake. As happens from time to time, the suggestion has been made that Microsoft cancel Windows Phone, and instead fork Android. It's not the first time this suggestion has been made. It's probably not the last, either. It's a poor idea. Google has worked to make Android functionally un
  15. By Charles Arthur 8 February 2014 03.03 AEST Microsoft’s new chief executive should separate mobile effort, and use the strength of Google’s open-source Android code to leap into mobile contention Edit: A response to this article, titled "Neither Microsoft, Nokia, nor anyone else should fork Android. It’s unforkable." can be read here: http://www.nsaneforums.com/topic/206105-neither-microsoft-nokia-nor-anyone-else-should-fork-android-its-unforkable/?do=findComment&comment=737084 To add to all the advice being ladled out to Satya Nadella, Microsoft’s new chief, here’s another piece: stop bo
  16. By Spulatov February 1st, 2014 Dear Microsoft, I really like your Windows Phone platform, and use Nokia Lumia 820. I am generally happy with performance and functionality. Your Windows Phone store has several exclusive apps with very interesting ideas like Foundbite and Bill Reminder. BUT, your store has a lot of junk which makes new and unexperienced users to buy and run fake applications. I reported several times applications which is just fake, disappointing, or PAID apps which is just a links to a web browser. Let me show you what I will get if I will enter just a Facebook. I will
  17. Mark Hachman Jan 31, 2014 3:00 AM Something very interesting is going on at Nokia: The company apparently believes that the look, feel, and underlying services of the Microsoft Windows Phone operating system may be more important than, well, the OS itself. According to reports, Nokia is finalizing development on “Normandy,” the code name for a low-end Android phone. Reports published this week say that the phone will be marketed as the Nokia X, but built upon much the same hardware platform as the Lumia 520, Nokia’s cheapest Lumia smartphone. Not surprisingly, representatives for Nokia decli
  18. By Matthew Miller January 29, 2014 Nokia Lumia 520/521 can't be beat for less than $70 Most people in the US purchase their phones directly from their carrier and look to pay the least amount upfront as possible. This usually means signing a long-term contract and picking up a heavily subsidized phone where the cost of the phone is hidden in the contract fees. And you can buy an affordable one that's not three or more years old. Times are changing though, thanks in large part to T-Mobile acting like a European carrier. Consumers are starting to understand that buying unlocked smartphones ma
  19. By Paul Thurrott Jan. 30, 2014 With January on the way out, AdDuplex returns with an interesting look at Windows Phone usage for the month. Also worth discussing: Why Nokia Lumia sales were down quarter over quarter in Q4 2013, but actual Windows Phone sales to customersand thus activationswere in fact up. It's all here in this month's peek at Windows Phone device usage. As you may remember, AdDuplex bills itself as the largest cross-promotion network for Windows Phone and Windows 8 apps, empowering developers and publishers to promote their apps for free by helping each other. And each mo
  20. By Surur January 29, 2014 What type of operating system will your next mobile phone have? Rewards company Jana Mobile, who concentrates on emerging markets, has posted the results from their survey of 1500 panellists in 9 countries on their intent to buy regarding their next smartphone. They found in quite a few countries interest in Windows Phone exceeded that of the iPhone. This was due to Nokia producing high quality low cost handsets less than $200, and Nokia’s strong brand in the emerging markets. What brand of mobile phone will you buy next? The above table shows the strength of the N
  21. By Surur January 29, 2014 In an interesting twist of fate, as Microsoft prepares to absorb Nokias handset division, Google has just confirmed it has sold Motorola, which it purchased in 2012 for $12.5 billion, for only $2.9 billion to Lenovo. In a statement, Google CEO Larry Page said the move will allow Google to put its focus back on the broader Android effort. Lenovo has the expertise and track record to scale Motorola Mobility into a major player within the Android ecosystem, page said. This move will enable Google to devote our energy to driving innovation across the Android ecosyst
  22. Updated: 09:20, Thursday January 30, 2014 A journalist has told Britain's phone hacking trial that Rupert Murdoch's News of the World tabloid routinely eavesdropped on celebrities' voicemail messages and editor Andy Coulson 'knew exactly what was going on'. Reporter Dan Evans, who has pleaded guilty to conspiracy to hack phones, said 'even the office cat' knew the illegal practice was widely used at the now defunct paper. Coulson, a former media chief to Prime Minister David Cameron, stared out from the dock as Evans told the jury at London's Old Bailey court: 'The truth is that Andy Coul
  23. By Preston Gralla January 29, 2014 6:00 PM EST Android remains king of the smartphones, but its growth in 2013 was the slowest at any time in its history. Can Windows Phone make inroads as Android potentially swoons? The latest market figures from Strategy Analytics have both good news and bad news for Android. First the good news: In 2013 Android widened its lead over the iPhone, Windows Phone, and other smartphones, with a remarkable 78.9% of all smartphones shipped in the world. That adds up to 781.2 million units, well ahead of 153.4 million for the iPhone, and 35.7 million for Windows Ph

  25. Robin Sinha, January 24, 2014 Nokia has confirmed its presence at the upcoming Mobile World Congress 2014 event, which is scheduled from 24 to 27 February in Barcelona. The Finnish firm has dropped an invitation for a press conference to be held on February 24, at 0730 (GMT). Just what does Nokia have in store for its MWC 2014 event? A range of handsets have been rumoured since November last year, out of which, we expect most of them to show up at the event. In total, six Nokia handsets are rumoured to get revealed at the event, including a few large-screen smartphones, or phablets. Back in
