Toilet People, a 3D board game for your Windows Phone

16

Toilet People is a board game available for both Windows Phone 8 and 7.x devices. The game has 3D graphics and supports up to four players in pass/play fashion. If you're short on human players, computer opponents will help fill the gap.

Toilet People isn't a bad game for your Windows Phone with a simple objective, make it from the starting point to the finish first. However, there are enough twists and challenges in between those two points to make the game interesting.

Toilet People has nice graphics, game play interesting, and while the Windows Phone game may not appeal to everyone, there is a trial version available to give the game a try before committing to the purchase.

Rear press render of the Verizon Nokia Lumia 929 leaks online, shows 20 MP rear camera

174

On a slow Sunday we have some slow news coming out, including this rear render of the Nokia Lumia 929 destined for Verizon. Yesterday we had the front side leak and now you can see it juxtaposed against its rear.

Anything else new to report? Not really, just that the 1080P Windows Phone 8 device will arrive in Red too in addition to White and Black, which should be a nice change.  Other than that, we still have the 20 MP PureView camera on the back and presumably the size is at least 5-inches for the display, though other specific details remain elusive.

Play 16-bit and 8-bit Sega games on Windows Phone 8 with EmiGens Plus

91

Back in August, we regretfully announced that popular emulator developer M.k would be retiring from Windows Phone development and allowing his apps to disappear from the Store. M.k’s apps are still around for the time being, but the emulation torch has essentially been passed on. And who came forward to pick it up and create new emulators? Andre Botelho, that’s who.

Andre has two emulators on the Store (EmiGens Plus and EmiNES) and a third (EmiPSX) in development. EmiGens Plus is the first Sega Genesis/Sega Mega Drive emulator for Windows Phone. It also happens to run Sega Master System and Game Gear games, making it a great value for classic gaming fans.

There's no groundbreaking functionality that will blow your mind away, but there's enough included to keep the experience feeling fresh and updated.

Qualcomm and Verizon join the Wireless Power Consortium board, the alliance behind the Qi wireless charging standard

65

Last fall, Windows Phone joined the world of wireless charging with the introducing of the Nokia Lumia 920 and the HTC 8X on Verizon. The feature was met with mixed reviews, but anyone who has used it will testify to its usefulness. It’s a shame devices like the Lumia 925 and 1020 need covers to add the feature. All Windows Phone devices that can charge wirelessly do so by using the Qi wireless standard.

Qi is currently the leading standard for wireless charging, but others are challenging it. So what happens now that Qualcomm and Verizon have joined the Wireless Power Consortium (WPC), the management board for the Qi standard?

Nokia Sirius Tablet to be called Lumia 2520?

The leaker Twitter account evleaks has posted this morning that the upcoming Sirius Tablet will be dubbed the Lumia 2520.

There has been a lot of debate about what Nokia would call their tablet line, with some thinking a new designation would be used instead of Lumia. It seems an odd choice to merge tablets and smartphones into one product line, but then again Microsoft has hinted and many analysts believe that Microsoft will combine RT and Windows Phone in the future. Perhaps this is the first shot of that planned mixing?
