75

We know T-Mobile is slated to get their first 4G LTE Windows Phone 8 device, the Nokia Lumia 925. For those sitting on the edge of their seat for this new Windows Phone, a sign-up page for the phone is available that may be an indication the release of the Lumia 925 isn't far away.

The Lumia 925 sports a 4.5" PureMotion HD+ screen, 1.5 GHz Dual-core processor, 1GB RAM, 16GB storage and a 8.7MP Pureview camera. The Lumia 925 will join the Lumia 928 at Verizon and Lumia 920 at AT&T as flagship Windows Phones for the U.S. carriers.

Video: Temple Run: Brave for Windows Phone 8 now available

119

If you’re a fan of Temple Run, then you’ll want to grab the all new Temple Run: Brave game for Windows Phone 8. The game follows on the heels of the Windows 8 version released a few weeks ago and much like its predecessor, goes for $0.99 without a free trial.

We’re not sure why the devs at Disney and behind Temple Run are so against trials, but we bought the game and tossed together a quick video presented below. Off the cuff, we have no complaints about the game (well, it could use a double wide tile, we suppose). Graphics have been updated, it runs smooth and the touch response seems good to us at these early stages.

What's the future of mobile gaming? - Talk Mobile

199

As much as mobile technology has advanced in the last five years, the evolution and revolution of the next five years is going to be even more drastic. Who would have thought that today we’d have cellular data connections that outstrip most hardwired home connections, or screens with pixels so small we can’t discern them with the naked eye? Or that we’d be cramming all of this into phones a quarter of an inch thick?

Five years ago the best games we had were basic racers, two-dimensional strategy games, and variations on board and card games. Today when you fire up your app store there are graphically-rich racers, intense shooters, interactive puzzles, physics engines put to work powering animated slingshots, and so much more.

Just what does the future hold in store for mobile gaming?

Let’s get the conversation started!

Review: T-Mobile Nokia Lumia 521

Review: T-Mobile Nokia Lumia 521

Windows Phone Central's review of the budget-conscious Nokia Lumia 521, exclusively on T-Mobile US

While Nokia has been busy unleashing the Lumia 520 Windows Phone to various global markets, T-Mobile has landed an exclusive variation, the Lumia 521. It's a compact, budget oriented Windows Phone that reminds me of the Lumia 710.  Maybe a little more refined that the older Lumia.

The scaled back Lumia 521 lacks a front facing camera, camera light and isn't that bountiful on RAM or storage space. While the Lumia 521 may not be a "high end" Windows Phone it fills a niche.  In combining the low-cost of about $150 and T-Mobile's "no contract" plans, the Lumia 521 is a good choice for the first time Windows Phone owner, parents looking for a reliable Windows Phone for their teenager, or anyone else just looking to save a few dollars.

After spending a little time with the Lumia 521, we've found it to be a rather solid addition to the Windows Phone family.

Windows Phone Apps to help weather the storms

Windows Phone Central App Roundup: Emergency Apps
Windows Phone Central App Roundup: Emergency Apps

We had a request for a roundup of emergency oriented apps and with Hurricane Season getting underway, it was good timing.

From weather forecast apps to emergency first aid titles, these Windows Phone apps can be a solid resource to help you weather the storms.And it doesn't have to be a weather related emergency. If could be a car accident, camping mishap, or your run of the mill household catastrophe.

We've posted emergency app collections in the past and they can really come in handy when the bottom falls out. Today we're only scratching the surface of all the emergency oriented apps available in the Windows Phone Store. We tapped two apps to help you track the storms, one to help keep emergency information close at hand, and one that will help you help others.

Nokia EOS 41-Megapixel Windows Phone camera caught on tape, optical focusing in tow?

220

We have seen a boat load of leaked images on what is believed to be the Nokia EOS Windows Phone.  The phone is reportedly in the early trial phases at AT&T, code named Elvis, and rumored to launch sometime in July.  While the still images are nice, we now have video of the camera in action.

The fifty second spot reveals a good bit about the camera and leaves us wanting more. It shows the lens cover open and shut plus it shows the camera having optical focus. You can see the front element of the lens move back and forth as it focuses.

Xbox One: Details emerge on licensing, online connectivity, and privacy

533

On May 21st, when Microsoft officially announced the Xbox One a lot of questions still remained. Will I be able to sell my games? Share my games? Do I need an internet connection once a day or once a month? These were questions we did not expect answered until E3, but Microsoft has decided to attack these concerns head-on and has shared their plans on all these fronts and more. That leaves E3 to be focused on games (a good call in our book). Details on the Xbox One after the break.
