  1. A published report out of China indicates that a "mini" version of the Nokia Lumia 1520 phablet is on the way. The device will reportedly be named the Nokia Lumia 1520 V and will feature a 4.3 inch screen, down sharply from the 6 inch glass found on the full-sized version of the phone. However, the screen on the "V" will keep the same 1080 x 1920 resolution employed on the larger model. That could result in one of the highest pixel density figures on a smartphone. The rest of the specs include 2GB of RAM and 32GB of native storage. A 14MP PureView camera is on back and a 3000mAh batte

    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
  3. Sony is dumping its PC business, and while that may appear like it will be repudiating its relationship with Microsoft, it may not be the case, after all. Sony CEO, Kazuo Hirai has hinted at something we saw coming already, Sony’s inclination towards making a Windows Phone. Let's address the elephant in the room first. It didn't come as a huge surprise when Sony pulled out of the PC business, as it had become a black hole for the company's money. Losing one of its biggest OEM partners wasn't something Nadella would have wanted to happen in his first week as CEO. To make matters worse, Hirai
  4. The yet to be announced, Nokia Lumia 929 went on sale in China. The top-end Windows Phone device is currently available for purchase in the popular online marketplace TaoBao for ¥3800 ($628). Also known as Nokia Lumia Icon, the smartphone is shown in a number of live photos, proudly wearing its Verizon Wireless branding. This is hardly a surprise, as the handset is bound to replace the Nokia Lumia 928 when it goes official on the Big Red. In addition to the host of live photos, the seller reveals the full specs of the Nokia Lumia 929. They include Qualcomm Snapdragon 800 SoC, 2GB
  5. This device will give us a good idea of the true demand of Windows Phone since it will be chock full of high end specs, but with a more pocketable 5 inch screen than the 6 inch glass found on the Nokia Lumia 1520. With specs similar to the Samsung Galaxy S4 we should get a rough idea of how far the platform has come. That is, until the next-gen top shelf Android models get released. The Nokia Lumia Icon got a quick release on Verizon's website before being pulled. The model was supposed to have already been launched, but there is a rumor that it has been delayed until next month due to Mi
  6. According to industry sources, an earlier rumor that had Japanese manufacturer Sony producing a Windows Phone model this year is true. The aforementioned sources say that while Sony will be spending its R&D money on Android and Firefox OS, it will offer Windows Phone handsets through U.S. carriers and in Japan. Microsoft is hoping to increase sales in Sony's home country as a way to expand the global share of its mobile OS. Sony will partner with Taiwan based ODM Compal Communications for at least 1 to 2 Windows Phone models. The volume expected for those two units is only in the tens of
  7. 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.
  8. Microsoft has denied an earlier report suggesting that the company plans to pay out billions of dollars in 2014 in an effort to ensure that a number of top smartphone vendors release phones powered by the Windows Phone platform this year. According to plugged-in Russian blogger Eldar Murtazin, Microsoft has plans to dole out more than $2.5 billion this year to Samsung, Sony, Huawei and several other smartphone makers to guarantee that they build and launch a single Windows Phone handset each in 2014. The exact purpose of the funds was not detailed. While Microsoft has not denied that payments
  9. The handsets are said to be loaded, with the Lumia 1820 sporting a 5.2 inch, 2K display, Snapdragon 805, 3 GB of RAM, 32 GB of internal memory, and large 3400 mAh battery, as well as a camera with Nokia's post-shot focusing technology and Xenon flash. The design is said to be similar to the Lumia 928, which is certainly slimmer than the current flagships Lumia 1020. The other one, Lumia 1525, and will feature the same hardware specs and 2K screen resolution, but come with a 6 inch panel and 25 or 30 MP camera on the back, offering some sort of solar charging display panel. Window
  10. While BlackBerry CEO John Chen has recently confirmed that the Canadian OEM will be offering BES for Windows Phone, it seems that the beleaguered manufacturer is not going to offer its BBM for the platform. The messaging application has already been offered to iOS and Android users and large numbers of both downloaded and installed BBM on their phones. The apps allow iOS and Android users to send and receive messages using PIN numbers. Eventually, they will be able to make phone calls, engage in video chat, and populate discussion groups. David Proulx, BlackBerry’s Senior Director of BBM B
  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. 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
  13. 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
  14. No, Windows Phone won’t be catching up to Android in terms of market share anytime soon. However, there is one key area where Windows Phone may at last surpass Android: It might soon generate more revenue for Microsoft than Android does. Beyond Devices takes a look at some of the latest numbers for Windows Phone revenues in Microsoft’s latest earnings report and finds that revenue generated from Windows Phone licensing has narrowed the gap with licensing revenue collected from Android handset manufacturers. In all, 42% of licensing revenues came from Windows Phone vendors on the quarter whil
  15. 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
  16. There’s good news and bad news for executives in Redmond today — Windows Phone’s market share has edged above BlackBerry’s, but the overall size of Microsoft’s slice of the pie hasn’t budged. According to the latest data from ComScore, Windows Phone now accounts for 3.2 percent of handsets in the United States, with BlackBerry lagging behind on 3.1 percent. Dig deeper into the figures and the news isn’t so encouraging for Microsoft. That 3.2 percent market share is the same as it was last October, so Windows Phone hasn’t made any inroads into the iOS/Android stranglehold. BlackBerry’s sha

    Nokia unveils Lumia 1320

    Nokia Lumia 1320 is another 6.0-inch phablet, this time around with a 720p IPS ClearBlack display and powered by a 1.7GHz dual-core Krait processor. The Nokia Lumia 1320 is LTE-enabled and comes with a 5MP camera with a single LED flash on its back. It packs 1GB of RAM, 8GB internal storage expandable via a microSD slot and a 3,400mAh battery. Nokia Lumia 1320 runs on the latest Windows Phone 8 GDR 3 OS and offers the Nokia Black (previously known as Bittersweet Shimmer) software package. Nokia Lumia 1320 will become available early next year in orange, yellow, black and wh
  18. Well the rumors of Nokia combining its Pro Cam and Smart Cam photography apps into one package have proven to be true. Just a little while ago Nokia released its Nokia Camera App for Lumia Windows Phones. You get the camera controls and zoom later features that Pro Cam offers along with the smart mode we've grown fond of that Smart Cam offers. For those not familiar with smart mode, it shoots a sequence of photographs that can be combined in different ways such as finding the best shot of the group, removing unwanted objects, and changing faces in group shots to make sure everyone is looking
  19. Live on stage at Nokia World 2013, WhatsApp CEO Jan Koum announced the instant messaging service now has 350 million monthly active users. That's up by 50 million since August, when the network announced it had hit 300 million. Koum also announced that some 250,000 users per day are registering for WhatsApp using Nokia devices — including Symbian, Asha, and Lumia handsets — over 7 million per month. source
  20. Nokia Lumia 1020 seems to be struggling to make a significant impact on the Chinese market. The first hints that its start was less than impressive was the fact that the phone didn't make it among the most popular WP handsets in the last two months. China is the world's biggest smartphone market for mobile phones and the Lumia 1020 premiered there on the insanely price of CNY5,999 - the equivalent of $1000 or €715. Now, two months later though you can buy the Nokia Lumia 1020 online for 3,999 Yuan or €475. This means the price has dropped down by a third and is now much more reasonable. The
  21. Nokia Lumia 1020 saw another major price cut in the United States. The mobile photography powerhouse is now available for $99.99 for new AT&T customers who sign a two-year contract. The attractive deal is offered by Amazon. Existing AT&T customers who renew their contracts will be offered the Nokia Lumia 1020 for $149.99. When announced for AT&T, the Nokia Lumia 1020 raised a few eyebrows with its $299.99 on-contract pricing. Currently, the carrier offers the device for $199.99 in its retail stores and online. The new, sub-100 price tag will surely put the Windows Phone
  22. Nokia’s “Normandy” Android handset has become something of a curiosity for many smartphone fans who see it as a “what-could-have-been” for Nokia if it had decided to not go exclusively with Windows Phone. ZDNet’s Mary Jo Foley, however, thinks that Nokia’s Android phone is more than just a novelty, however — it might be a hint of what’s to come from future Microsoft phones now that it’s on the cusp of buying Nokia’s handset division. Why in the world would Microsoft release an Android phone, you ask? As Foley explains, a heavily modified Android that incorporates a lot of Windows Phone’s des
  23. Microsoft has issued an update for Skype on Windows Phone bringing the app to version 2.16.0.266. Available in the Windows Phone Store, the new Skype version fixes bugs and introduces slight improvements in the sign up/sign in process for users. Now, first-time Skype users will have no choice but to register with the same Microsoft account that they’re currently using on their phone. Anther minor improvement is the introduction of the typing indicator icon whenever someone is writing you. Another less stalker-ish improvement is the option to mark new messages as read, so they don’t
  24. This year’s Mobile World Congress event was a site of wide range of high-end smartphone announcements, beginning with Samsung Galaxy S5 launch to Nokia X, an Android-based smartphone. The move from Nokia was clearly viewed as a departure from the protocol, especially following its acquisition by software giant, Microsoft. Naturally, response to the products ranged from being impressed to highly skeptical. Mobile World Congress 2014 What brought respite for Microsoft, was a new plan of action from the Finnish giant to increase the adoption rate of Windows Phone and assurance from othe
  25. As a result of an infringement suit with BSkyB, Microsoft was recently forced to change the name of its SkyDrive service to OneDrive. With this new branding, Microsoft has been on the campaign trail of promotion, and today, has offered what looks, at least initially, to be a pretty sweet deal. OneDrive users can capitalize on the opportunity to grab 100GB of cloud storage space for free, but there are, as ever, a couple of conditions to the offer, which we shall reveal after the jump. As standard, OneDrive users get 7GB of space, which certainly isn’t bad. However, even if we don’t plan on usi
