Top Windows Phone apps for the Microsoft Band

56

While the Microsoft Band is still somewhat limited in availability, the number of Windows Phone apps with support for the Band is growing at a decent pace. Sure, most are customization apps but being able to have the Band fit your personality and style is not a bad thing.

While we have a Windows Central page dedicated to Microsoft Band apps, we thought it was time to highlight some of the top Windows Phone apps designed for the Microsoft Band in this week's roundup. Plus, seeing that the Band is becoming available outside the U.S. as well as through Amazon.com, Best Buy and other third party retailers we expect more of our readers will be curious as to what apps are out there.

Dell UK now offering an entry level XPS 13 at £799

35

We're big fans of Dell's latest XPS 13 round these parts, but one issue there has been outside of the U.S. is availability of the full range. In the UK, for example, the only models to go on sale initially were the range topping, Intel Core i7 models. Fortunately that's improved since and now British buyers can spend substantially less and get one from £799.

MetroPCS to launch Microsoft Lumia 640 'mid to late May', priced at $99

156

The Lumia 640 was only announced by Microsoft a few weeks ago, but many people are eagerly awaiting its release, slated for 'April'.

MetroPCS is evidently primed for the sale of the entry-level Lumia in 'mid to late May'. The date is slightly later than open market availability although it is not too far pushed back.

Cost of the device is looking to be $99 likely off-contract, although final pricing is not locked in 100% just yet. MetroPCS's version will support LTE although it is not clear if it will be dual SIM.
