Windows 8 version of Firefox pushed back till next year

137

If you’re running a PC, odds are you’re using either Internet Explorer, Google Chrome, or Mozilla Firefox as your web browser. The trio are always going head-to-head for marketshare with new features and other innovations. Solid touch support is one area that both Chrome and Firefox aren’t doing so hot compared to Internet Explorer.

Which is why the tech community was pretty stoked when Mozilla announced their plans for Firefox as a Windows 8 style app. Unfortunately it looks like the launch of that application has been pushed back.

Sneak peek: 6tag for Instagram gets new Modern design in impending update

98

It was just a few days ago that 6tag, the unofficial Instagram client for Windows Phone 8, received a robust update with version 1.2. That update included the premier feature of multiple-account support. Now we can share with you the long-rumored new UI for version 1.4, which is due in the Store in the next twenty-four hours.

Responding to some critics who would prefer a swipe / gesture based system for 6tag, developer Rudy Huyn has obliged those users by offering them a second UI. The new choice is called ‘Modern’ while the old design is now called ‘Polaroid’.

Virtual Windows Phone spotted in Grand Theft Auto V, used for selfies

87

File this under ‘mildly interesting’ but it looks like the hotly anticipated Grand Theft Auto 5, a game that has never been accused of lacking a sense of humor, has a little mobile surprise in it.

The gaming site Kotaku published their GTAV walkthrough video today, which in and of itself is worth your time, but at around the 0:50 second mark a virtual Windows Phone is spotted. The device is used by ‘Trevor’ one of the optional protagonists in the game to snap self-portraits.

Report: AT&T Nokia Lumia 1520 set for early November at $699 off contract, comes in four colors

222

AT&T is on board with picking up the 6-inch Nokia Lumia 1520, which is expected to launch in early November according to one of our reliable sources. Windows Phone Central now has some further confirmation from a second person familiar with the matter.

The new info points to a planned Friday, November 8th launch date on AT&T for the colossal Windows Phone.

We can also confirm that the device will come in four colors, including red, black, yellow and white—most of which have already been revealed in either leaked photos or renders. Evidently, cyan for AT&T is a thing of the past as the Lumia 920 was the last phone to feature that hue.

More alleged screenshots of Windows Phone 8.1 Blue leak, show potential Notification Center

127

We’re filing this one under unsubstantiated rumor, but forum member qXerro has posted a few more screenshots over the last twenty-four hours of Windows Phone 8.1. The problem with such stories of course is trying to verify the information and since screenshots can be very easily faked, it’s hard to justify.

Still, qXerro has posted screenshots of features like app sorting before. That rings a bell because we know of that feature but never reported it publicly—so either he’s a good guesser or there is some truth to his leaks (Unfortunately, the last we heard is that app sorting was removed due to ongoing issues).

Official 7 Eleven app for Windows Phone 8 launches, features coupons and more

97

Looks like another official app has launched for Windows Phone 8 and it slipped under our radar. 7 Eleven (http://www.7-eleven.com), the popular convenience store chain in the US, released their Windows Phone 8 this last Wednesday.

The app itself has a unique UI, featuring a swipe based gesture system to navigate to the main sections. It’s actually the same layout as the iOS and Android apps, keeping the company design consistent. Those sections include special day-only deals, in-store goods like sandwiches and wings, coupons that you can redeem and a store finder. The app has all four of those sections laid out as tabs and you can merely tap or swipe to get to them

Mammoth Nokia Lumia passes through FCC, destined for Verizon

88

It was only a few days ago we saw our first look at what could be the next high-end Windows Phone device on Verizon Wireless in the United States. The image came from a leaker on Weibo, a Chinese microblogging website (think Twitter). Now a Windows Phone device destined for Verizon passes through the FCC. Is it the same 1520 variant we saw a few days ago or different device? Let’s find out.

It was Friday when we saw what appears to be a variant of the Lumia 1520, but destined for Verizon. The device was sporting a white casing, in addition to Verizon and Nokia branding. The source of the leak stated the device would come with a 20MP sensor (just like the Lumia 1520) and that this was a really big Windows Phone device.

Striking back: Nokia regains lead in Russia, passes Samsung on the way

Latest market share numbers from Russia's largest retailer puts Nokia ahead of Samsung

There’s nothing but positive results for Nokia and Windows Phone lately. Today, we’re continuing the momentum with news from Russia where Nokia has surpassed Samsung for market share. The story was first published in Vedomosti, Russia’s premier business paper

The data itself comes from Russia’s largest mobile retailer, Euroset, who have more than 5,000 stores across the vast country. Their latest report puts Nokia at 29% of the mobile market in Russia this summer, up from 27% in the spring. Samsung meanwhile has dropped to 27% from a previous 30% just a few months ago. That bump gives Nokia back the edge since Samsung beat them earlier this year (the two often go back and forth in terms of market share in the country).
