  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. A tweet from evleaks proves that like us, the reliable source is slaving over a hot QWERTY over the weekend. But even more important is the content of the tweet which is a list of alleged new code names for upcoming Nokia devices. A couple of names on the list have a "Bond, James Bond" connection such as Goldfinger and Moneypenney. The other names are Normandy, Phantom and Spinel. Considering that Spinel is a magnesium aluminum mineral with the symbol MgAl2O4, this could be the code name for an aluminum clad Windows Phone handset. The other names lend themselves to a number of various
  3. 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
  4. 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
  5. 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
  6. 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
  7. 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
  8. 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
  9. Windows Phone 8.1 may be "only" a point update from the software that's currently available to consumers, but the update is rumored to be bringing some major changes with it, including a notification center and support for on-screen Back, Start and Search buttons. One detail that we're still without is the timing of the update's release, but that's changed today with a new report that claims to have details on Microsoft's rollout plans. According to sources speaking to Mary Jo Foley over at ZDNet, Microsoft is currently planning to unleash the Windows Phone 8.1 update "later this April." It's
  10. 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
  11. January 25, 2014 By Surur AdDuplex, who has access to plenty of data from their app promotion network, and who publishes a monthly report, have looked at their numbers and found that it is likely that more Windows Phones were sold in Q4 than Q3 2013 after all, and that more than 10 million new Windows Phone handsets landed in consumer hands in the holiday season. Their conclusion is based on that assumption that no significant number of Windows Phone 7 handsets were sold in 2013, and a number of other logical assumptions, but of course is not as solid as an actual announcement by Microsoft o
  12. By Paul Sawers, Yesterday Windows Phone is making small strides in some markets as it looks to dent the dominance of Android and iOS. But yes, it does have some way to go before it can lay-claim to any smartphone throne. Recent figures suggest Windows Phone 7 and 8 constitute more than 10% of UK smartphone sales, while across other major European markets Windows Phone 8 represents around 1 in 10 of all smartphone sales. Some data even suggests it overtook iOS in Italy between July and September. With BlackBerry on its way out of the consumer market, Windows Phone is currently the only real
  13. By Brad Sams 5 hours ago It’s no secret that Microsoft’s Windows Phone platform got off to a much slower start than many had hoped. But with a couple years now behind the platform, there is solid proof that Windows Phone is growing and that Microsoft's marketing efforts are paying off. Aside from the notable achievements, and we call them achievements because getting developers to adopt to your new platform is never an easy task, especially landing key first party apps such as Instagram, Facebook and Twitter; trending analysis shows consumers are warming up to the platform. How do we know co
  14. 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

A new bacteria-killing glass is hoping to clean up this act. Source: Corning Source: Supplied If you knew how many germs were caking your mobile you'd probably shudder and bolt for the nearest handy wipe. But a new germ-killing mobile glass has been developed to help keep bacterial beasties off your beloved gadgets. Make no mistake, huffing on your mobile screen and rubbing it on your sleeve will not kill the thousands of diarrhoea-inducin
  16. 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
  17. 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
  18. Nokia has today updated their Nokia Camera Beta app to version 4.5.1.6. imageThe app, which combines the features of Nokia Pro Cam and Smart Cam, is now available for all handsets running Nokia Amber, and brings support for DNG capture (Digital Negative Format) on the Lumia 1520 and 1020 running the Lumia Black software update. The app can be found in the Windows Phone Store here. Via WindowsPhoneapps.es http://wmpoweruser.com/nokia-camera-beta-updated-now-supports-all-nokia-amber-handsets
  19. Written by Ron on January 12, 2014 - 07:05PM If you are looking to make the switch to Windows Phone or simply confused by all the Nokia Lumia choices out there, have no fear. There are quite a few options out there for those interested in purchasing a brand new Nokia Lumia Windows Phone device. Ranging from the Lumia 520, all the way up to the Lumia 1520, which of these Windows Phone devices are the best for you? Nokia launched its line of smartphones called 'Lumia' running Microsoft's Windows Phone platform, first introduced back in November of 2011. These Lumia smartphones were the result

    Nokia Lumia 1520 Review

    By Jamshed Avari, January 16, 2014 The Lumia 1520 has two big things working against it, neither of which is a deal-breaker on its own, but when combined, make it a very interesting product to review. First, it's a Windows Phone. While the platform certainly does have its fans, there's no denying that it isn't as versatile as iOS and Android yet. As a person buying this phone, you will have to put up with a number of limitations and frustrations because of its software. Second, it's huge. So-called "phablets" are big business, but not everybody wants a phone that can't fit in a pocket and be
  21. Editorial Vlad Dudau 2 hours ago In my book Windows Phone has a few things going for it. First of all the refreshing Modern UI, which some people hate, but I find to be playful, functional and beautiful. Secondly: high-quality, beautiful devices from the likes of Nokia and even HTC which attract the eyes of consumers with their colors and style. However there are some indications that all of this might change in the near future and not for the better. I’m not referring to the operating system UI, which Microsoft has made quite clear that it’s committed to. Yes, Modern as a design language h
  22. 1 of 2. The Huawei Ascend Mate2 4G mobile telephone with an Android operating system is displayed at the annual Consumer Electronics Show (CES) in Las Vegas, Nevada January 8, 2014. Reuters) - LG Electronics executive Frank Lee bounded onto a Las Vegas stage this week to show off a new phone for the U.S. market, the 6-inch G-Flex, which boasts a curved screen. Two hours later, in another room at the same hotel, Huawei Technologies' Richard Yu unveiled the razor-thin Ascend Mate II, bragging it had a battery life of nearly two days. There was one key difference between the two product launches
  23. Windows Phone 8.1 is the next big update we are itching for and has been rumored to arrive this Spring, alongside the Update 1 for Windows 8.1. According to a new report, Microsoft has confirmed that Windows Phone 8 users will be able to update to Windows Phone 8.1, avoiding the chaos that was created with the transition from Windows Phone 7 to Windows Phone 8. With any new smartphone operating system update, we begin to worry if the update is backwards compatible with our current smartphone. In this case, will Windows Phone 8.1 be compatible on smartphones running Windows Phone 8? Microsoft
  24. 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
  25. 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
