Samsung has released a number of updates for its collection of apps on Windows Phone. The manufacturer has an array of apps for consumers to enjoy in the Samsung Zone, which can be accessed from the Windows Phone Store main menu.

Wead for Windows Phone 8, add weather to your photos

17

Wead is a Windows Phone 8 app that acts more like a plug-in for your Pictures Hub than a stand alone photography application. In a nutshell, it allows you to label your images with the current weather.

If you launch Wead, all you'll be able to do is read the instructions and rate the app over in the Windows Phone Store. To use Wead, you'll need to pull up the image you want labeled, choose the edit option from the three-dot menu and then choose Wead from the list of editing apps.

It makes perfect sense for the network to really take advantage of the cheaper 4G option to offer a more cost-effective solution to customers.

Nokia Lumia 1020: Photo samples

While the Nokia Lumia 1020 for AT&T is a stellar Windows Phone for checking your emails, posting to Twitter or listening to music, that’s not why you want to buy one, right? Nope, it’s for those 41MP images (and oversampled smaller ones).

As a preview to our review, here are some sample photos that we took today. The images posted here are the smaller 5MP photos with Nokia’s oversampling i.e. these are the ones you would share. They’re also resized to fit your computer display.

Fear not pixel peepers as we have the originals, in their full HD glory, right here for downloading (via SkyDrive). Warning though, it’s an 85 MB ZIP file.

AT&T Nokia Lumia 1020 – Unboxing and first impressions

123

This Friday, the Nokia Lumia 1020 goes on sale nationwide in the US on AT&T (store link). The device is priced at $299 on contract and $659 off making it one of the most expensive Windows Phones to date. The device’s claim to fame is the massive 41MP PureView camera, with optical image stabilization, a BSI sensor and Nokia’s improved camera algorithms for JPEG processing.

We’ve spent all day with the device and figured we’d share our thoughts with you on it before we delve into our full review, coming Friday morning. 

So head past the break for two video walkthroughs (one unboxing, one later in the day, after usage) and some high-quality photos of the AT&T Nokia Lumia 1020.

Microsoft on lack of frequent updates: We’re listening, more to come this year

519

There’s been a common complaint from the Windows Phone community the past few months around a seemingly lack of urgency with Microsoft to release updates. Windows Phone 8 launched at the end of last October and since then we haven’t had much in terms of OS updates. Right now GDR2 is beginning to roll out for a few of you, but other than that not much. Microsoft’s Joe Belfiore recently took to the Windows Phone UserVoice to address some of that criticism.
