Nokia Lumia 800 sales will be limited to select partners in the UK

With Nokia putting all of their proverbial eggs into the Windows Phone basket, you would think that they’d be eager to get their handsets out to as many people as possible. Oddly enough they chose to do a European launch first, followed by a US launch next year, but now it seems that even in Europe, not everyone will be able to get their hands on the device.


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.

Windows Phone surprise revealed

Remember the “big, big” surprise that we were promised by Microsoft last week? Well, if you were at New York City’s Herald Square today, you would have seen it. But for the rest of us who can’t see it in person, Microsoft revealed it today on its official Windows Phone blog.

Nokia Lumia 800 Review

The Nokia Lumia 800 was introduced at the recent Nokia World by Stephen Elop (Nokia’s CEO) who said “it’s the first real Windows Phone”. It’s a bold statement, but it’s true that in the past, Windows Phone have often inherited from designs that were not the very best handset makers could offer. Unlike others, Nokia is in a unique position where it is betting everything on Windows Phone 7. So, […]


ChevronWP7 Windows Phone unlocker is back in action

When Windows Phone was first released, a group of developers created a tool called ChevronWP7 which allowed users to unlock their WP devices so that they could sideload apps. Needless to say, the app got shutdown pretty quickly – but the creators of the unlock announced that they would be working with Microsoft on an alternative solution. Months passed, and there were no updates on the ChevronWP7 blog – people […]


Windows Phone surprise next week

Microsoft has announced on the official Windows Phone blog that it has something special in store for us next Monday. The only hint that was given in the blog post is that it’s going to be something fun, and they’re going to bring Windows Phone to life in a “big, big, way.” For some reason the idea of a giant Windows Phone bouncing castle just springs to mind but hey, […]


ST-Ericsson officially announced as a partner for future Nokia Windows Phones

It has been rumored in the past that ST-Ericsson will be powering the next generation of Windows Phone devices with its processors but nothing has been confirmed until today. The folks over at ST-Ericsson have issued a press release confirming its partnership with Nokia for the Finnish giant’s next upcoming WP devices. This marks the end of Qualcomm’s reign over the processors being used in Windows Phone devices, and the […]


Kinectimals back on the Windows Marketplace

Back in August we wrote about Kinectimals, Microsoft’s upcoming game that would bridge the Xbox 360 and Windows Phone devices. Well, the game happened to be prematurely released last week for some reason as it was quickly pulled off the Windows Marketplace. But now it’s been reported that the game is back on the Marketplace – this time for good. In Kinectimals, users get to choose one of five kitties […]


Nokia Lumia 800 no longer has Dolby Digital Plus?

When the Nokia Lumia 800 was first released and you pored over its official specs page and fell in love with the phone, take note that there have been some unannounced changes to the device. According to a sharp-eyed 1800pocketpc.com reader, the official specs page of the Nokia Lumia 800 has some noticeable omissions of features that were present before. If you check out the page now, it no longer […]


Nokia Lumia 800 set for 16th November UK release

It has been confirmed that the Nokia Lumia 800 will be released in the UK come 16th of October, which coincidentally is the day before Samsung is expected to release the Galaxy Nexus in the UK. This should prove to be interesting to see which phone will be making a bigger splash, although with the Nokia Lumia 800 being Nokia’s first Windows Phone device, they probably have a lot more […]


Nokia Maps will be arriving on other Windows Phones

At the launch of the Nokia Lumia 800, Nokia mentioned that the phone will be preloaded with some apps exclusive to Nokia phones, and well now it looks like at least one of those apps will be making its way to Windows Phone devices from other manufacturers. According to reports online, Nokia Maps will be available to all Windows Phone devices in the coming weeks. In case you were wondering, […]


Lenovo S2 Windows Phone photos leaked

With Asia-based companies such as Acer, Fujitsu, Toshiba, Samsung and ZTE getting on board the Windows Phone bandwagon, we can’t say that we are surprised to find out that Lenovo could be looking to get themselves a seat on board as well, and thanks to a leaked photo (as pictured above), we could very well be looking at the Lenovo S2, a Windows Phone based device.


Nokia targets first time smartphone users in the US

If you’re wondering why Nokia is taking its sweet time to make its way over to the US, it’s because of the company’s tarnished legacy. One a force to be reckoned with, Nokia fell from the throne when it refused to adapt and change its products for US consumers. Windows Phone is Nokia’s second chance at getting back into the US and they’re working hard to make sure they don’t […]
