Lumia 710 Tango update spotted in China

Posted April 17, 2012 @ 10:52 am CST by Alberto Lima

The much anticipated CR3 (8773+) aka “Tango” seems to be prepped for global release after its initial roll out in China. The update hit Nokia’s Nokia Care Suite some time yesterday and appears to be the update that will bring multiple tweaks to the phone’s MMS handling, 256MB phone support, among other changes. Sadly there’s […]

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 […]

Review: Xbox Companion for Windows Phone

Posted February 28, 2012 @ 3:10 pm CST by Chris Ness

It’s been a while since I’ve cranked out a review, so I’ll make it up to you. Today I’ll be covering the Xbox Companion app for Windows Phone. It essentially turns your phone into a remote for your Xbox 360 console, allowing you to start apps or games as well as search via the Bing […]

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, […]

Microsoft unveils browser based WP7 demo

Posted December 15, 2011 @ 4:18 pm CST by Chris Ness

Why? Well, because it’s optimized to run on your Android or iOS device. Head on over to the demo and try it out. Of course, it’s not the full extent of the OS, but they are focusing on the main stuff. Texts, People, Groups, Phone, Calendar and Local Scout. I suppose the point isn’t to […]

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 […]
