The Windows 8 phone "Intelegent" exists: PC World claims to have seen footage

108

Windows 8 Phone. Sounds familiar, right? It's either the common mistake made by both consumers and retailers or the i-mate product we looked at back at this year's Mobile World Congress. We remained on the fence at the time, but now PC World has revealed they've seen footage of the product, as well as the ability to confirm specifications. Interested? We sure are.

T-Mobile Nokia Lumia 521 joins an elite crowd: will support Wi-Fi calling

98

You might not know this, but before I was 110% Windows Phone I had a thing for Blackberry. Specifically the Curve 8320. That’s because it had one feature in a smartphone that I absolutely needed back then – Wi-Fi calling. If you’re a Windows Phone fan and hoping to get a phone with Wi-Fi calling you might want to check out the Nokia Lumia 521.

42

While we still don’t have an official Fitbit app for Windows Phone, developers have made quite a few unofficial ones for the popular fitness tracker with varying degrees of success. Now Shane Chism has made his own because frankly, he wanted a fully optimized one for Windows Phone 8, including HD graphics.

Fitbit Tracker is just that app and it’s now available as a public beta. That means you can download it now and give Shane feedback on things you would want to see implemented for the final release.

Death Worm finally comes to Windows Phone 8: Chow down on puny humans!

63

I rarely get giddy for games but Death Worm is one of those that has literally garnered millions of downloads on iOS and Android. And now thanks to the power of Windows Phone 8, it is finally here for us to play. Sure, we’re totally years behind but there are reasons why we’re seeing these titles coming to our platform now: ease of porting, potential to make money.

So what is Death Worm? It’s made by PlayCreek and it originally came out in 2010. Since then it’s gone to become one of the most popular arcade style games around. In essence, you’re a big fat killer worm that hides underground, occasionally busting out to eat people, elephants, camels, bust up tanks and take down helicopters. And that’s just Level 1!

DEAL ALERT: Beem Plus and Beem for SKY.FM are now free for a limited time

43

You’ve heard us go on before about Beem Plus, the dedicated Digitally Imported music streaming client and its new brother, Beem for SKY.FM. The apps are polished, well designed and deliver top quality music to your Windows Phone. Indeed, behind Pandora, Beem Plus is our most used music app (set it on Trance and hop on an elliptical for 40 minutes…it’s a good time).

Both apps usually fetch for a minuscule and well-worth-it $0.99 but the developer behind them, Den Delimarsky, is feeling generous as he’s dropped the price down to $0. And remember folks, once you “buy” an app for free, it’s yours forever.

Nokia releases 3G network lock app for China Mobile's Lumia 920T

34

I guess this is more about being funny than actually useful to most of you guys. Nokia just released an interesting app for Lumia 920T users on China Mobile. The app only does one thing: to lock the phone to either 3G or 2G network.

This may raise some eyebrows, since normally one could select what kind of network he wants in the system settings of Windows Phone 7 and 8. But no, that doesn't apply to China Mobile's Lumia 920T, which stays on 3G network by default. The 2G/3G/4G switch was removed by request of the carrier, probably in order to keep as many users on its 3G network as possible.

Nokia Lumia 620 now available in the U.S.

33

The Nokia Lumia 620 is an affordable, impressive entry level Windows Phones. We were impressed with the 3.8" device (here's our review) and it is now coming to the U.S. market.

The not-so-good news of it all is that while the Lumia 620 is making an appearance in the U.S. market, it's not with a major carrier.  The Lumia 620 is being offered by the relatively new wireless carrier Aio Wireless.
