From the Forums: The Lumia 900 and an 8-month backpacking tour across Europe

7

The Lumia 900 was a popular Windows Phone and still proves to be a thorn in the back Windows Phone 8 when we're looking at the usage margin between version 7.x and 8. The Nokia device has been taken on a backpacking tour around Europe. Windows Phone Central reader Matthew Cosentino is originally from Melbourne, Australia but has uprooted his life by quiting his job, selling his business and decided to move beyond the border. The past 8 months has seen the Windows Phone owner travel across Europe, focusing more on the Eastern side.

The iMore Podcast where CrackBerry Kevin and Dan talk about how stupid this Smartphone Madness contest is...

52

On Saturday we reluctantly linked to the Smartphone Madness online poll to see "which is the best smartphone"...a contest which many of us here find meaningless and sensational. Still, against our better wishes (and mostly because our sister site Crackberry posted it) we had to do some link love. (And If you think people aren't cheating and running scripts, making the "contest" pointless, well you'd be wrong. Still, there's no harm either.)

With that, yesterday we recorded a podcast with myself, Rene Ritchie (iMore.com) and Kevin from Michaluk from Crackberry. It was an iMore podcast for sure, but we did cover all the platforms, the silliness of online smartphone polls and some general trends in the market--it's a worthy (and short) listen, so you should check it out.

Also consider this a teaser of an upcoming Mobile Nations event...

Exclusive first look at Modern Combat 4 for Xbox Windows Phone 8

147

We can’t say whether there will be two Xbox Windows Phone releases this week just yet. But we can tell you – and show you – one very exciting game arriving for Windows Phone 8 on Wednesday. Originally announced back in October, Gameloft’s Modern Combat 4: Zero Hour will finally arrive this week! Not only will it be the first Xbox Windows Phone first-person shooter, but it promises even more advanced multiplayer features than we saw in Asphalt 7 earlier this year.

During my recent trip to the Game Developers Conference, I stopped by the San Francisco Gameloft office for a quick tour. Lennon Arcaro, Gameloft’s Account Director was kind enough to walk me through the opening moments of Modern Combat 4. See our world exclusive hands-on footage after the break!

Blondinbella apps for both Windows Phone 8 and Windows 8 have been released. Should you be a fan of the popular and well-known Swedish blogger, these apps are a must have. We've previously looked at Isabella Desirée Löwengrip Rydberg and her own Nokia Lumia 920, so it's good to see apps to further support both Microsoft platforms.

Endless Robot Street, a smash 'em up kinda game

11

I'm not sure if you would consider the Windows Phone game Endless Robot Street a game or a stress reliever. It's listed in the Windows Phone Store as a game but plays more along the lines of a street reliever.

With Endless Robot Street you play the role of a giant robot who goes down the street smashing everything in sight. While the game keeps track of your destruction as career stats, there's no in-game scores or any way you can lose. Still, there's an odd sort of attraction to Endless Robot Street.

Rumor: Google attempting to acquire WhatsApp for near $1 billion

216

A lot of you who are big fans of messaging app WhatsApp- a popular, cross-platfrom, instant messaging application for smartphones. If you’re holding a mobile device, odds are there is a Whatsapp application available for it. The company launched in 2009 and quickly did to SMS what Skype did to international calling on landlines (at least that’s what Wikiepedia is telling me). So here’s fairly big news for the app. Google is attempting to acquire it for one billion dollars.

Video: Chillingo announces Contre Jour and more Xbox games coming to Windows 8

35

Of all the offsite meetings we engaged in during GDC, the most pleasant place to visit was probably Electronic Arts’ suite at the St. Regis Hotel. Within that cozy location, Android Central’s Simon Sage and I met with Dan Tausney, PR Manager of Chillingo. As you might remember from our article about their most recent Windows Phone releases, Chillingo is the arm of EA responsible for publishing indie games from all over the world. They’ve been a major Windows Phone supporter and will soon be doing the same for Windows 8 as well.

Check out our hands-on footage with Contre Jour for Windows 8, see your favorite mobile Games Editor in action on video, and learn about Chillingo’s future Windows 8 plans after the break!
