Windows Phone 7.5 And 8.0 Devices No Longer Receive Push Notifications
The mobile iteration of its operating system has gradually been fading into oblivion and even Microsoft has been nudging it down that path. The company has now confirmed that it’s shutting down the push notifications service for devices powered by Windows Phone 7.5 and Windows Phone 8.0. Once this happens, those who own these devices will no longer receive push notifications.

Windows Phone 7.5 Now a Must for Marketplace Downloads
Earlier today, Microsoft made an announcement that beginning from May 23, any downloads from the Windows Marketplace can only be completed by devices running the company’s Windows Phone 7.5 OS.

The company which has offices all over the world, boasts over 150 million members has succeeded in keeping the application […]

Spotify hits Windows Phone 7.5 devices
Do you happen to own a Windows Phone 7.5 device? Well, if you also love music streaming services, then chances are pretty good that you would be happy to hear that Spotify is now readily available for your Mango-powered smartphone. They say that good things come to those who wait, and I would think that the Spotify team did take their own sweet time in working on a Mango-compatible version […]


Windows Phone Mango heads for virtually all devices
It seems that the Windows Phone 7.5 Mango update is now on its way to all compatible devices – now does that mean some devices will not receive it? Yes, in the most basic of terms, those that are not compatible, meaning older models, will most probably miss out on the Mango boat. We do know that Microsoft has already started delivering Windows Phone 7.5 to the LG Optimus 7 […]

Nokia 800 teaser ads aired in the UK
A few days ago, press shots of Nokia’s upcoming Windows Phone device, the Nokia 800, started showing up. Now it looks like teaser videos of the handset have started airing in the UK which were aired 1 second at a time, truly a teaser indeed. All that’s left now is for an official announcement by Nokia, which is expect to take place during the Nokia World event held in London […]

HTC Arrive with Mango seen in Las Vegas Sprint store
Mango has arrived…on the Arrive. OK, so that might be a wee bit lame, but at least it signals the end of the weekend, and a brand new work week is about to start. Someone spotted a HTC Arrive that had Windows Phone Mango running on it at a Las Vegas Sprint store. This is certainly a wee bit early considering Sprint customers are said to start receiving their Windows […]

Telstra HTC HD7 and Mozart to receive Mango update
Telstra has just announced that their HD7 and Mozart smartphones from HTC will be on the receiving end of the Windows Phone Mango update, although owners of the HTC Desire (strange to see how a high end phone becomes obsolete in slightly more than a year – the feeling is surreal) will cringe to hear that there will be no custom Gingerbread update – guess Froyo is as good as […]

The Fujitsu IS12T will be available via KDDI, showing to the world that Windows Phone Mango is more than ready to take on the world – so hopefully this is the signal […]

Microsoft Games Hub on Windows Phone Mango unveiled
You know that Microsoft’s foray into the video game console market all those years ago with the original Xbox certainly brought about a renewal, taking over the old vanguard of Sega. Well, time has passed and Microsoft has yet to crack into the Japanese market with their Xbox 360, but that doesn’t mean the company isn’t successful in its own home ground – the US. Microsoft wants to take their […]

HTC Mazaa GPU performance showcased
The HTC Mazaa does not look as though it will ever hit the mass market for reasons that HTC only knows, but it seems as though this is a souped up version of the HTC Trophy. Interestingly enough, this smartphone was the giveaway prize in at least two of Microsoft developer contests, but at least it is a benchmark of what is to come with the next generation of Windows […]

Toshiba Fujitsu IS12T ready to rock with Mango in Japan
Will Windows Phone actually continue to grow from strength to strength?

The Toshiba Fujitsu IS12T will be on Microsoft’s side, where it is said that this smartphone will run on Windows Mango when it arrives in […]

Windows Phone Mango ROM works on HTC HD2 without missing a beat
The HTC HD2 is definitely a handset that seemingly lasts without showing any signs of ageing – after all, when Windows Phone 7 Mango Beta was announced, it was ported over to the 2009 handset and worked relatively well. This is not to say that there were no niggling problems – far from it, earlier Mango custom ROMs for the HD2 did not allow Live services to function, but all […]
