The Game of Life Review: The crummiest book I ever read...

14

Just over a year ago, Nokia and Electronic Arts announced an agreement to publish over 20 EA games exclusively for Nokia Lumia Windows Phones. Shortly thereafter, they revealed the full list of planned titles. The list contained some compelling brands like Dead Space, Madden, and FIFA. It also included more casual and less exciting titles such as The Game of Life and Connect 4.

We didn’t know whether they would all be Xbox-branded titles or not, but as it turns out, each game released so far has indeed been Xbox Live-enabled. I’d have loved to review The Game of Life and Connect 4 together, but the latter unfortunately doesn’t work on Windows Phone 8 right now and I won’t have a WP7 Lumia phone. So let’s look at LIFE (as I’ll shorten it) on its own merits.

More Mapping updates from Nokia inbound

Nokia unleashed a veritable salvo of updates earlier which we reported on but it seems that the updates to the mapping components weren’t quite done with, there is more.

Nokia Maps has introduced better integration with Nokia Transport and we noticed an odd disconnect in the app when getting more information would prompt a search in the store. We have had confirmation from Nokia that they will be releasing an update shortly to correct that. Read on to find out more..

Littlewoods UK listing Samsung ATIV S for a low £699

25

No, the title isn't a typo. UK retailer Littlewoods has the Samsung ATIV S listed for £699. That's over $1100 should you be reading this article from across the pond. Now, it's understandable that hardware (particularly the latest smartphones) can sometimes cost an arm and a leg. But for a well known and sizeable retailer to charge £700 for a mobile phone is slightly baffling.

Nokia to update Pulse social app for Windows Phone 7.8 and 8

8

Nokia Pulse is an app currently in beta that aims to make messaging with contacts easier, particularly when attempting to meet. Instead of sending multiple SMS messages, with Nokia Pulse one can send a message with it automatically tagging current location.

The app will also suggest a place to meet, complete with ratings, reviews, map directions and more. It essentially cuts down the multiple app usage when attempting to achieve similar results. The good news is the beta is coming soon to both Windows Phone 8 and Windows Phone 7.8.
