Create some nice looking Windows Phone wallpapers with Paralaksa

13

Paralaksa is a wonderful Windows Phone app that allows you to create lockscreen wallpapers that are based on themes. If you are sporting Windows Phone 8.1, there's no reason you can't use the wallpapers as Start Screen backgrounds as well.

We've tinkered with Paralaksa for the past day or so and while pronouncing the name has given me fits, the app itself comes across as a clean looking, creative way to compose some nifty Windows Phone wallpapers.

Nokia Lumia 830 photo gallery – affordability never looked so good

Besides the Lumia 730 and Lumia 735, Microsoft's other big news was the Lumia 830, which they tout as "an affordable flagship smartphone". Putting comparisons aside (it is cheaper than the Galaxy S5 and iPhone 5s), the Lumia 830 brings a lot to the table. Between its thinness (8.5mm), 10 MP PureView camera, Qi wireless charging or 5-inch 720P display, the Lumia 830 has a ton of potential.

Our hands on video with the Lumia 830 is coming up, but until then enjoy some of our photos of the device showing off that exquisite design. Bonus? Check out that new Glance screen that features Bing Weather (via a beta version of the app)!

'Hey Cortana!' brings passive-listening to Windows Phone this fall for a hands-free experience

340

Berlin, Germany – Invoking Cortana on Windows Phone is a straightforward affair with a single button press of the Search key (or swipe-down on the HTC One for Windows with Dot View case). However, newer technology found on the Xbox Kinect and some other Android devices is making the jump to Windows Phone: passive voice activation.

Arriving later this fall with the newly announced 'Lumia Denim' firmware update, some Lumias are getting the hands-free feature named 'Hey Cortana.' Users with smartphones featuring the Snapdragon 80x chipsets, like the Lumia 930, Lumia Icon, and Lumia 1520 can all take advantage of the Cortana extension.

Nokia Lumia 730 and 735 'selfie' phones announced by Microsoft at IFA 2014

213

Berlin, Germany – Microsoft this morning announced the budget-conscious Nokia Lumia 730 and Lumia 735 along with its 5 MP front-facing camera for the 'selfie generation' and Skype users. The phone is expected to go on sale in the coming weeks for €199 ($262 USD) along with 3G dual SIM support ideal for emerging markets. The Lumia 735 with 4G LTE and single SIM will run for €219 ($288 USD). By comparison, the original Lumia 720 cost around €249 on its initial launch.

The Lumia 730 is the follow up to the popular Lumia 720, which featured an impressive F/1.9 aperture camera for exceptional low-light performance. The Lumia 730, however, builds off of the Lumia 720's weaknesses by adding in 1 GB of RAM, a faster 1.2 GHz Quad-core processor and a 4.7-inch 1280 x 720 HD display.
