146

We sympathize with you Windows Phone fans on Sprint. Here we are, it’s almost April 2013 and you’ve only had one device available since Windows Phone debuted back in October 2010. The HTC 7 Pro (Arrive) was a nice phone to start you out, but it’s time for something new. You already know that HTC and Samsung will be the OEMs making your devices when you get them early summer. But now we have a better idea about those devices – The HTC ‘Tiara’ and Samsung Ativ S.

T-Mobile updates Galaxy Note II for LTE but doesn't mention one for Nokia Lumia 810

63

It was reported a few weeks back and evidently re-validated by Windows Phone Daily that the Nokia Lumia 810, a T-Mobile “exclusive” phone, would receive an over-the-air firmware update at some point to enable 4G LTE speeds.

What’s more, it’s been said that the 810 and not the HTC 8X would be getting this feature, a claim somewhat confirmed by a recent FCC filing for Nokia’s device. When the original report came out, it stated that the Galaxy Note II would also get such an update.

FM Radio to return to Windows Phone 8, Nokia to continue improving their Lumias with new features

133

If there’s one sore spot with a certain segment of users it was how the release of Windows Phone 8 lacked FM radio support—something which had been around since the Zune player days. No reason was ever stated, though it’s a safe guess that it was something Microsoft simply did not have time to complete by October’s release schedule.

Now, according to sources at the Verge, that situation will change with the expected GDR2 update coming out later this summer. That addition will allow users, when headphones are plugged in, to use their Windows Phone as an FM radio—an important source of news and entertainment for many in emerging markets who can’t afford streaming data plans.

Dragon Portals for Windows Phone 8, solve the puzzles, free the dragons

9

Dragon Portals is the latest Windows Phone 8 game from 10tons that is a little on the scaled back side when compared to other games the company has recently released to the Windows Phone Store.

And that's not a knock against Dragon Portals because it's a fun, challenging puzzle game to have. You are tasked with freeing dragons from the holds of dark magic. You do so by solving puzzles to free them before they crash into the ground.

Dragon Portals may not have the oddity of King Oddball or the shoot 'em up action of Boom Brigade 2 but it's a nice addition to the Windows Phone gaming library nonetheless.
