That said, none of the Achievements is impossible and we’ve got some tips to make things easier.

Windows Phone Game Review: Pandoodle

Pandoodle is an enjoyable, relaxing Windows Phone puzzle game that has enough challenge to keep it from getting boring. Pandoodle is a multi-level puzzler with the goal being to connect color sources with their corresponding colored symbol.

The challenge comes in that you can't cross paths unless you need to combine colors to match the color of the symbol you are connecting. Pandoodle has 75 puzzles or levels that span three worlds or books. Pandoodle is nice time waster and even has a bit of an addictive quality.

Sony “currently investigating” Windows Phone 8 but makes no commitments

116

How we feel about Sony adopting Windows Phone 8

Sony Mobile Communications is one of those finicky OEMs who are constantly adjusting their strategy as the market changes around them. Actually, that’s hardly a bad position to take and that seems to be the case with their position on Windows Phone 8 as well.

In a recent interview with Mobile Magazine, Sony Mobile’s UK & Ireland MD Pierre Perron discussed their latest stance on Microsoft...

The Nokia Lumia 920 Windows Phone's Pureview Camera turned a lot of heads this week with it's very impressive low light and stabilizing features. The demo video and still images gave hope that a "knock your socks off" camera was heading to the Lumia Windows Phone line. But the video and still images have been dissected more than a High School science project with accusations that Nokia faked it all and the camera isn't as grand as Nokia would like us to think. But is this a case of bad advertising or a bad camera?

We think it's two separate issues and too many nay sayes are trying to mesh them together to make the Lumia 920 look bad. We believe this because the specs on paper lead credence to the camera's touted performance and most importantly because we've seen the camera perform up close and personal.
