First images of Nokia’s aluminum Lumia, codenamed ‘Catwalk’, have surfaced [Updated]

327

We have no way of verifying the authenticity of these two images, but it appears to be of the upcoming Nokia Lumia ‘Catwalk’, a follow up to the Lumia 920 that reportedly sports a new aluminum chassis to help reduce the size and weight. The images showed up on the popular Chinese social network Sina Weibo.

No other details were given, but earlier information about Catwalk stated the device as having 4.5” display with an OCTA display, S4 1.5GHz dual-core CPU, 16GB of storage (down from 32GB), 2000mAh battery and an 8.7MP OIS camera with LED flash.

Sonic CD takes a turn as the Xbox Red Stripe Deal this Thursday

60

As deal-savvy gamers might have noticed by now, the Xbox Windows Phone Deal of the Week is now technically a part of Microsoft’s Red Stripe Deals, which roll out every Thursday. Basically three Windows Phone apps or games go on Thor’s Day, one of which will be an Xbox Live title. Well, a rose by another name smells just as sweet, and we’ll continue reporting on the Xbox sale game prior to Thursday as we’ve always done.

Time to eat candy and play Cut the Rope Experiments on Windows Phone!

86

Cut the Rope launched on Windows Phone more than five months ago. Surely gamers have had plenty of time to complete its 275 levels and collect all 825 stars (or at least the 300 needed for an Achievement). What do you do if you’re still dying for more Cut the Rope action?

Well, you could always buy the very similar (and also Xbox Live-enabled) Spider Jack for a buck. But that game’s been out for even longer, so I bet you’ve beaten it too! In which case, you’ll be glad to know that Russian developer ZeptoLabs has just released Cut The Rope: Experiments for Windows Phone 7 and 8. It packs another 150 levels of candy-feeding goodness, but it also costs a bit more than a dollar this time.

Rumor: Nokia’s PR2.0 major firmware update for Lumias aiming for a July release

144

We brought you the video last week of a forthcoming “major” firmware release for the Lumia 920 (and presumably other Windows Phone 8 Lumias) where the new “double tap to awake” and an on-screen clock were revealed.

That update is called PR2.0 with the PR standing for “press release” and it corresponds with the version number. For instance, firmwares that started with 1232.1249.XXXX.XXXX were PR1.0, the ones that started with 1232.5951.XXXX.XXXX were PR1.1 and the new 1308 firmware is PR1.1.5. The forthcoming PR2.0 is obviously a big jump and represents numerous changes and enhancements, of which we’ve only been privy to a few.

Ding for Windows Phone 8 helps you get up in the morning in style

38

Windows Phone has a built in alarm that does the job well, should you be in the mood to get up in the morning that is. If you're looking for a slightly different experience and a more feature-rich alarm, then Ding may well be the solution. The free app offers more functionality than the system alarm app, with a more aesthetically pleasing interface and some Live Tile action.

Modern Combat 4 Review: Big-screen shooting on Windows Phone 8

76

The era of Gameloft Windows Phone 8 support is in full swing. Already the prolific publisher has graced us with an amazing racer (Asphalt 7), two less amazing but still decent open world games (Amazing Spider-Man and Dark Knight Rises), and a surprisingly enjoyable physics puzzler (Shark Dash). It’s almost like they’re single-handedly keeping the Xbox brand alive on Windows Phone.

Now Gameloft follows up with Modern Combat 4: Zero Hour, the second Windows Phone title with real-time online multiplayer and the platform’s only first-person shooter so far (until N.O.V.A. 3 comes along). FPS games on the phone are new for many of us - including me. Read on to find out how well Modern Combat 4 works as both a single-player and multiplayer game!

Music streaming service Deezer launches app for Windows 8

19

Deezer (www.deezer.com) has launched an app for Windows 8. The French web-based music streaming service is available in over 180 countries and boasts over 3 million subscribers. Unfortunately, there are still no plans for a US launch, which the company surely has to achieve to compete against Spotify, Nokia Music and Xbox Music in the important market.

Browse and install OEM apps from the Windows Phone web store

35

If you're not already aware of the online Windows Phone store, which is available over on the official Windows Phone website (www.windowsphone.com), it's useful way of checking out Windows Phone content when at a computer. As well as browsing apps from developers, consumers are also able to look through and install OEM apps that are listed in the Nokia Collection, Samsung Zone and HTC Apps.

Prior to this feature it was only possible to check out the latest content from each manufacturer on a device.

Chase some storms and monitor weather patterns with MRLevel3 for Windows Phone

17

Should you be interested in Meteorology, EMS, or be an avid storm chaser, you're options on Windows Phone are fairly limited. This could be about to change with the introduction of MRLevel3. The app is exclusively available on Windows Phone (oh, hello there Disqus) and is right up your street if you're into the weather (quite literally) in the US.

Nokia Lumia 928 screen assembly compared against current Lumia 920

52

The Lumia 928 has been featured in a newly published YouTube video, which goes into some detail comparing how the screen and digitiser assembly is different to that found on the Lumia 920. The Samsung Galaxy 3 makes an appearance too. The Lumia 928 is part of the Lumia 920 family and shares most of the specifications, but it's interesting to note just how different the two devices are in terms of construction.

Microsoft will make money for every Android device made through Foxconn

134

Level with me. You’re civil and fairly polite here in the comments on Windows Phone Central. But on other sites you’re a Microsoft fanboy. Don’t worry, there’s one deep down in all of us. Here’s some fodder for the next little flamewar you start with your Android frenemies – Microsoft will pocket dough for every single Android and Chrome OS device that Foxconn makes.

Intel CEO says future Windows 8 tablets to start at $200

74

Head on over to web retailers like Newegg or Amazon and you’ll see that the cheapest Intel based tablet you can buy running Windows 8 is about $430 (Acer Iconia W150). That’s not too bad when you consider the potential of the system with the ability to actually install desktop applications. But what if we could go lower than the $400 dollar mark? Totally possible according to Intel’s CEO.

Take control of your GoPro with Action Camera for Windows Phone 8

12

It was back at the beginning of January, CES to be exact, that we first saw the official GoPro app for Windows Phone. It was running on a cool blue Lumia 920 and looked fairly finished. At the time the company said to expect the app in mid-February. It came and went, we then saw it again at Mobile World Congress at a ‘partner app’ from Nokia. We then learn we’d expect it sometime ‘this spring’. That means anytime between March 20th and June 21st, since that’s how long spring is. If you’re impatient, here’s another third party app filling the gap - Action Camera.

Nokia bumps #2InstaWithLove to version 2.2 and throws in a new filter

50

Although the whole Instagram brouhaha is still going on with Windows Phone, Nokia has kindly updated their universal Windows Phone app #2InstaWithLove with a new filter.

The new effect is called HandCam and it adds a reddish hue along with saturated darks to the image it is applied too (as opposed to the more yellow Polaroid look). It still keeps with the retro-Instagram style while giving users a bit more flexibility for image creativity.
