Celkon Win 400, the most affordable Windows Phone device, now available in India

58

Celkon Mobiles, the Indian smartphone vendor, has finally put their first Windows Phone device – the Celkon Win 400 - up for sale. While there hasn't been a formal announcement or a press release, the device is now available for sale on Snapdeal.com, a leading online retailer in the country.

Priced at ₹4,999 ($80), the Celkon Win 400 is the cheapest Windows Phone device. That makes it a great entry level Windows Phone device to counter the cheap Androids in the market, but the phone sports modest specifications as one would expect.

Mobile messaging app Threema lands in the Windows Phone Store

75

Threema is a new mobile messaging app for Windows Phone that is billed as putting privacy first with end-to-end encryption to help insure that your messages can only be read by you and its intended recipient.

We had heard rumblings that the messaging app was in the works for Windows Phone over the summer and it hit Store shelves this morning. Threema's claim to fame is the security it offers through not only its encryption but also the anonymity. You can use Threema without the need for personal information such as email addresses or phone numbers and your messages are deleted from Threema servers after delivery.

At first glance, Threema comes across as an appealing and feature rich messaging option worth considering.

Bobo, an endless floater game for Windows Phone

Bobo is a simple time waster of a game for your Windows Phone where you have to help a mystical creature navigate its way through a mysterious forest. You guide Bobo up and down the screen to avoid various dangers as he floats endlessly through the forest.

The game's graphics are a little on the dark side, but matches nicely with the mood of the backstory. Game play with Bobo is simple but not without challenge. Available for low-memory Windows Phones, Bobo may not be a game to sit down and play for extended periods, but for short spurts, it might not be a bad title for your Windows Phone gaming library.

U.S. passes E-Label Act to free your gadgets from ugly labels

115

President Obama has signed the E-Label Act into law on Wednesday, which will allow electronics manufacturers to add labels for products using software rather than having to print the labels on hardware. Essentially, with the law, phones and tablets can be made with cleaner designs as labels and stickers will no longer be needed and the information could instead be found within the phone's software. While some Lumia phones hide their serial number and IMEI numbers under the SIM tray, some still ship with identifying labels; Windows tablets and notebooks ship with even more information.
