Windows Phone 7.8 is Actually Pretty Okay

Posted April 1, 2013 @ 9:00 am CST by Carlos Lima

Early in 2012 Microsoft broke many hearts when they announced that current Windows Phone 7 users would not be able to upgrade to the new hotness, Windows Phone 8. As a consolation prize, the Windows Phone faithful would get an update, version 7.8, that would bring some of Windows Phone 8′s features like the new […]

SkyDrive now a desktop app for Windows and Mac

Posted April 23, 2012 @ 12:00 pm CST by Alberto Lima

In our never-ending quest to find the perfect cloud storage solution, Microsoft’s SkyDrive is officially a desktop app for Windows and Mac. The free app went live this morning and will provide a native desktop interface for those files you have to access everywhere, for a price. Yes, I said it’s a free app, but […]

Nokia Confirms: Tethering Coming to Full Lumia Line Up

Posted March 19, 2012 @ 8:00 am CST by Alberto Lima

When Nokia previously announced that WiFi tethering was coming to their Lumia 610, a very entry-level handset for the Asian market, it was baffling that the higher-end handsets (namely the Lumia 800 and Lumia 710) would not be getting the update with Mango (Windows Phone 7.5). After all, Microsoft made WiFi tethering a big part of the […]

Windows Phone surpasses fifty thousand apps and other cool facts

Posted January 13, 2012 @ 11:00 am CST by Chris Ness

The Windows Phone ecosystem is getting bigger. They’ve recently surpassed 50k applications available for download. But that’s not all.  In 2011, the average WP7 users downloaded 48 apps, out-ranking Android (30) yet below iOS (83). I do believe, however, that this has a lot to do with Google services being built in to Android. Also, […]

Nokia must listen to the Noisecast: Lumia 900 coming to AT&T with FFC

Posted January 9, 2012 @ 11:13 pm CST by Chris Ness

I’ve been known to go on a few rants about Windows Phone. Not the actual Operating System, but the people who are behind it. Almost a year ago, Nokia joined hands with Microsoft to fix their lack of a smartphone OS and  Microsoft’s lack of notable hardware. Since then we’ve seen one US phone released, […]

Nokia’s Rolling Thunder

Earlier this month, Nokia and T-Mobile made their official announcement for the Nokia Lumia 710. With a release date of January 11th, the Lumia 710 will be the first Windows Phone 7 device from Nokia available in the US.

True SkyDrive for WP7 and iOS is here

Posted December 13, 2011 @ 1:02 pm CST by Chris Ness

Microsoft uses SkyDrive heavily in WP7. It’s integrated into the way you take and upload pictures, the way you send them and view them on your device, and your MS Office Documents as well. But it’s never really acted as a file system or drive the way many of us think it should. That’s all […]

Spotify for Windows Phone

Posted November 8, 2011 @ 10:30 am CST by Chris Ness

Spotify, the service that recently came to the US, then annoyed Eric, is now available for Windows Phone. How does it look? Excellent. The app developers over at Spotify have done an excellent job of making the app look like it belongs in the WP7 ecosystem. That’s probably because Microsoft helped them develop this beauty. […]

Mango can help Windows Phone, if the carriers get out of the way.

Posted November 2, 2011 @ 4:30 pm CST by Chris Ness

Windows Phone 7 hasn’t had an easy time edging its way into the smartphone market. They had a bit of a tail start on Android and iOS, and didn’t have the full tool-belt of functions that either of the others had. The 7.5 “Mango” update aims to fix that, and bring the early adopters up […]
