  1. Microsoft has created a new "How To" site that teaches you how to use your phone like an expert. Included on the site is a number of videos that reveal how to personalize your phone, how to use Cortana, how to play music and games, how to use the camera, and more. This is a timely move by Microsoft, since the software giant has just started rolling out the Lumia Blue update for Lumia phones. This includes Windows Phone 8.1, and thus, there might be some questions about new features such as Cortana. The virtual personal assistant is available in the U.S. for Windows Phone 8.1 users, and wi
  2. Lumia Cyan is set to roll out for existing handsets all across the globe, and Nokia even updated its software update page for those who want to know about its progress for their region. For now, users enrolled in the free Windows Phone 8.1 Preview for Developers program should keep checking as an update is rolling out for the preview with build 12400. The update doesn't appear to be a big one, and does not bring any feature that's a part of the Cyan update. The update will start rolling out starting 1PM ET, so make sure you check for the update if you're rocking the developers preview.
  3. Microsoft has posted their official changelog for the GDR1 update on the Windows Phone Blog. Although it misses a number of things specific to OEMs and carriers, as well as no mention of the improved Bluetooth stack and IE updates, it does list a number of improvements specific to the end user experience. Windows Phone 8.1 Update OS version: 8.10.14141.167 or 8.10.14147.180 FoldersFolders let you organize your Start screen the way you want. Just push one Tile on top of another one to create a folder and get going. MessagingCombine multiple text messages into one, and then forward them to someo
  4. Windows Phone 8.1 Update 1 was announced last week by Microsoft and includes a number of new enhancements and features which further align the mobile operating system with competing platforms. Today, Microsoft has released this new update for those who have registered themselves in the Preview for Developers. The Windows Phone 8.1 Update 1 preview for developers has started rolling out now, which means it should hit your device momentarily. You can check to see if the update is available by opening Settings and navigating to Phone update > check for updates. Those in on the preview w

    Microsoft’s toughest choice

    Never mind Bing and Xbox. What the heck is Microsoft’s new CEO going to do about its feature phone unit that is churning out 200 million low-end handsets a year? The dilemma here is that Nokia’s handset unit has two very disparate parts: feature phones and smartphones. Feature phone demand is now dropping rapidly as low-end Android smartphones are beginning to hit the $100 unsubsidized price. That was the segment of Nokia’s feature phone business that kept the whole low-end business profitable: The $80 to $100 premium feature phones that offered tolerable camera performance, relatively tigh
  6. By Narender Singh January 29, 2014 Sorry if this was posted before. A friend just updated to the Lumia Black on his 520 (Yes, its being pushed right now) and he has got the awesome Double Tap to wake feature. It is working as it should and the device responds in time. So the conclusion is that Double Tap is coming to all of the low range Lumia phones as well and is not limited to 625 and 720 as some were predicting. Let’s wait for more :) http://www.nokiapoweruser.com/2014/01/29/double-tap-to-wake-comes-to-lumia-520-with-lumia-black
  7. January 20th, 2014, 03:44 GMT · By Cosmin Vasile The cheaper version of Lumia 1520, Nokia Lumia 1320 is about to make its debut in Australia. After announcing the upcoming availability of the dual-SIM version of Motorola Moto G, another popular smartphone will be making its way onto Australian shelves. However, Nokia's phablet won't be available for purchase until early February, MyNokiaBlog reports. It appears that the Finnish company plans to release the Lumia 1320 in Australia on February 4, though we're still waiting for confirmation on that one. Customers in Australia will be able to p
  8. 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
  9. The geeks of mobile, and especially the Windows Phone fans, are eagerly awaiting Microsoft's Cortana voice-controlled assistant. That's not only because it will finally be an answer to Google Now and Apple's Siri, so their friends with iPhones or Android handsets will have one less reason to brag, but also because Microsoft is big in artificial intelligence, voice recognition and simultaneous translation research. Whether or not the amazing R&D demonstrations that you see in the embedded video below, will be transferred successfully to Cortana, remains to be seen, and likely very soon.

    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
  11. It's finally happening! After being announced at the Nokia Lumia 1520 unveil last year, the highly awaited Lumia Black update is set to begin its rollout starting today. In a press release from Nokia, the company claims the update will begin rolling out today for Lumia 1020 and 925 owners, with other devices being updated within the coming weeks. The Lumia Black update brings a number of new features to the table, including a yet be be seen feature called App Folder which allows users to group apps on their Start Screens. Other features include Glance Screen 2.0, which now displays more t
  12. Just two days ago Microsoft announced a new trade-in deal for the US and Canada, which can give you up to $250 of store credit if you give up on your old smartphone or tablet. Today Microsoft has extended this deal with a special offer. If you opt to return your old Apple iPhone 4, iPhone 4S or Samsung Galaxy S II, you can have a Lumia 1020 or Lumia 1520 for free. Your old phone just needs to be working, with no missing parts or pieces. The deal expires on March 2, or until supplies last. he catch is that you'll have to sign a two-year contract with AT&T, to get the free Lumia
  13. 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
  14. We have some pretty awful news about T-Mobile and Verizon subscribers who have a Lumia 810 or 822. Apparently Nokia has completed the Lumia Black firmware update for the Lumia 810 and Lumia 822, but the carriers won't push it to the users. This info comes from a chat with Nokia's Customer support, so it's not like is fully official just yet. According to the user's chat with the Nokia representative, the update is not happening and Verizon is only listing it as Coming Soon, just to avoid angry users' rant. There is no official reason for not releasing an update that has been finishe
  15. According to Nextleaks (another mobile phone rumor Twitter account, a la Evleaks), Nokia is planning to release the Lumia 930, 630, and 635 smartphones. They should be officially announced at Mobile World Congress, which begins on February 24th. The 930 is the higher spec'd of the devices, packing a quad-core 2.2GHz CPU, 2GB RAM, a 4.5” 1920x1080 resolution display, microSD card slot, 16GB of internal storage, 20MP camera, and a 2700mAh battery. The 630/635 is the successor to the Lumia 620. They're both mid-range handsets, with the 635 reportedly being a dual-sim variant of the two. Thes
  16. 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
  17. Many times we install lots of applications or games in our mobile phone and the phone becomes not responding or very slow due to some faulty apps or other obvious reasons. Sometimes we try hidden secret codes or PC software to play with our mobile phone functionality or to update its firmware with a new 3rd party unofficial firmware available on Internet which breaks our phone and makes it not bootable. In such cases we have no option left except taking our phone to the service center and ask the mechanics to repair our phone. If the phone is out of warranty, we may also spend some money for t
  18. Last time WPBar leaked some info about Lumia 1520V(Lumia 1520 Mini),and now they have even more details about the device. This time the image is slightly clearer, and unfortunately with it the 1080P screen has also disappeared. The known specs now include: •First Lumia 1520v is short for Lumia 1520 Viisi •Lumia 1520V is a wxvga device(1280*768) •the battery is 2370mah •Lumia 1520v is 4.45 inch large •Lumia 1520V has six small live tiles( WPBar is very sure about it) WPBar says they will report more about Lumia 1520V in next 2 weeks. What do our readers think about what is looking like a mi
  19. Nokia has asked Mobile World Congress attendees to join it on February 24, where they’ll get a chance to see the firm’s newest hardware releases. The official event invitation didn’t give us any hints about what these new products would be, but a series of leaks have provided a few choice details about Nokia’s next Lumia devices. The latest report comes from DigiTimes, and apparently confirms much of what has come before. It speculates Nokia will have three Lumia smartphones to show us, all of which will run Windows Phone 8.1, the next major update to Microsoft’s mobile operating system. If
  20. Microsoft having officially taken over Nokia, we could be about to see our very first Lumia running on Android. Courtesy of a leak by perpetual informant Evleaks, a “Nokia by Microsoft” handset running on Android could be forthcoming, although teasingly, we don’t have any further details at this point. Given that Microsoft is actively trying to promote and improve its own mobile platform, going for a device running on stock Android, or a variant thereof, would seem an odd tactic, but there are ways in which the Redmond could tweak the experience to suit Windows Phone. By using the Android
  21. The Start Screen of Windows Phone 8.1 will be customizable with background images. Several leaked screenshots revealed the upcoming WP feature and its settings screen. The new customization option will not be enabled by default. The familiar two-tone Start Screen will still greet Windows Phone 8.1 users out of the box. Reportedly, not all apps will allow their tiles to be skinned. Some applications such as Office and Xbox Music will retain an appearance in solid color. Microsoft will likely begin seeding Windows Phone 8.1 to developers early next month, during its Build conference. S
  22. Hey, soccer fans, gather around! A Windows Phone version of FIFA 14, the latest addition to one of the most popular soccer simulators, has finally been released. The iOS and Android versions of the game landed on the respective app stores back in September 2013. FIFA 14 features more than 16,000 real soccer players from 34 different leagues. Players can choose among 600 licensed teams to play with. Of course, a bigger portion of these comes directly from Europe. A completely new feature has also found its way to the popular game. FIFA 14 is the first mobile game of the FIFA series to fea
  23. Windows Phone 8.1 hasn’t yet seen its official release, but many of us have already gotten a good taste of what this update will bring thanks to the WP8.1 Developer Preview. This update, which was originally announced at last month’s Build 2014 conference, brings quite a bit of added functionality such as Cortana Voice Assistant, a new Action Center notification handler, and improved device personalization options. Despite all of WP8.1′s improvements, it still misses some key functionality that many power users would enjoy–most notably, a robust, built-in file manager. Yes, there’s no
  24. The first device to run the final Windows Phone 8.1 revision is out now – the Lumia 630. We’ve met with the little fella and already done a proper review. But as it seems we’ll be unveiling new features for days to come. The latest update we find in the Windows Phone 8.1 concerns the Store. In addition to the automatic updates feature and the easier Check for Updates functionality, the reviews section has also been updated. You can now see which device each reviewer was using to test a given app. This is surely a helpful option, especially for those running on a low-end WP smartph
  25. The first Windows Phone 8.1 powered devices are expected to hit retail by the end of this month, but what about the existing devices? When will the roll out start for them? Well, it's not confirmed at the moment, but Microsoft recently shared the lifecycle date for Windows Phone 8.1, and it's going to start on June 24th. That's the date when the Redmond-based company will start providing support for the product. Microsoft's support page mentions that the company will provide support and updates for the operating system for a minimum of 36 months, starting from June 24, meaning that you'll ge
