256 GB Surface Pro shows up for Japanese market

58

Until recently, the largest amount of storage you could pick up for a Microsoft Surface Pro has been 128 GB. Now a version of the tablet has surfaced in Japan with 256 GB and a 120,000 YEN price tag (approx. $ 1,200).

The new larger capacity sized Microsoft tablet will also include a pre-installed copy of Office 2013 Home and Business. Only Surface RT tablets have come pre-installed with Microsoft’s productivity suite, so this marks a first for the Pro model.

Mobile Nations launches Talk Mobile 2013!

38

We’ve teased it for weeks but now it’s time to unveil what all that ‘TM13’ business was that was such a big secret. TM13 stands for Talk Mobile 2013 and it’s our new program that will elevate the discussion of mobile beyond just platforms and who is better than whom.

The event is based off of our Round Robin program, which we did years ago. That event involved all of the head editors trading phones for a week and then reviewing the experience. While fun, that was a 2008 thing and this is 2013: all the platforms have basically caught up to each other and have become outstanding options. No longer does one dominate the conversation and neither will it here.

Talk Mobile isn't a one day event. It's a discussion that will carry on across Windows Phone Central, CrackBerry, Android Central, and iMore for the next several months. We've picked 10 important topics in mobile and cooked up a whopping 50 Talk Mobile features that we'll be publishing across the sites that are going to spark a lot of conversation.

Blocky Blaine: Out West, a physics Windows Phone 8 game that has potential

13

When you first look at Block Blaine: Out West's listing in the Windows Phone Store, you may say "pass" and move on to the next title. First impressions give this Windows Phone 8 game a feel that a little polishing (mainly with graphics) wouldn't hurt.  While the Block Blaine has a rough appearance, the game concept isn't too shabby.

The block graphics could use a little work and the main character, Blocky Blaine, could use a little facial expressions. But move past the rough appearance and the physics based game has potential.

You have spoken: Itsdagram will be renamed to Instance

200

Earlier today, the popular (and unofficial) Instagram client for Windows Phone, Itsdagram, faced a dire situation: be renamed or face removal from the Store. Developer Daniel Gary was scrambling for a new name (and font and icon) for his prized app and he had less than 24-hours to do so.

To make the choice more fun and to give you folks a voice, we suggested a survey followed by a poll. From one thousand responses, Daniel Gary and our team whittled it down to five choices. From there, it was all in your hands.
