Verizon Lumia 830 specs rumored to include 20.1 MP PureView camera, 4.5-inch display

430

Although all eyes are focused on the imminent release of the HTC One (M8) for Windows, Verizon is expected to get also get a mid-range phone dubbed the Lumia 830. The Lumia 830 goes by the codename Tesla/Superman, and as the model number suggests, it is a 2014 replacement for the aging Lumia 820.

Over at TK Tech News, a site that is making waves recently with some of their leaks (which they shamelessly pay for), a new photo reveals a Windows Phone lit up in the dark, and it is supposedly the Lumia 830 for Verizon. The image in the video is unremarkable as it could be any Windows Phone, but the phone is being sent directly to TK Tech News who will presumably do a full hands-on if it proves to be accurate.

Skwirmy Free, a Windows Phone game of survival

Skwirmy Free is a Windows Phone game that is reminiscent of the old Snake games but with a survival twist. You play the role of a worm that goes around eating up the neighborhood, seeing how large you can grow and avoid being eaten by the other bugs.

The more Skwirmy eats, the longer he becomes. This makes maneuvering skwirmy around the game screen a little more challenging and makes skwirmy a larger target for the other bugs to attack. The game has nice graphics, a decent challenge but lacks that intangible that keeps you drawn into the game.

Available for 512MB devices, Skwirmy is a decent game but I don't think it's strong enough to be your go-to Windows Phone gaming title.

A new project being undertaken at Microsoft Research involves turning first person videos into smooth timelapses, which Microsoft calls hyperlapses. Normally, when a first person video is sped up into a timelapse, the footage is shaky due to the constant movement. Microsoft's project aims to fix that by running the video through its algorithms to create a smoother camera path.

The new Pizza Hut India app for Windows Phone is ugly, but functional

117

Pizza Hut, the American restaurant chain and one of the flagship brands of Yum! Brands, Inc., known for pizzas and side dishes is a leading affordable casual dining restaurant chain in India. After making a foray into India in 1996, the chain has now 138 dining restaurants across 38 cities in India.

Pizza Hut India has launched their official app for Windows Phone 8 devices. Unfortunately, the app is just a wrapper for Pizza Hut's mobile site, and I usually hate to report apps like that. However, the app's pretty useful and works well for what it's intended for and so, I thought of looking beyond the tacky design and lazy execution.
