Review: Elsse Folio Case for Surface RT and Pro

29

The Microsoft Surface is a well-constructed tablet, no doubt. Combined with a closed Touch or Type Cover, the screen can be decently protected from bumps and scratches. But I wouldn’t want to drop either Surface, especially the costlier Pro – they’re bound to come away with some scrapes.

You could try to protect your Surface by using it as a desktop and never taking it anywhere, but that’s no fun to do with a tablet. So why not try a case for protection? Whichever Surface model you own, an online retailer called Bear Motion has you covered. Their Elsse Premium Folio Cases for both the Surface RT and Pro come in a wide variety of colors. Check out several of those colors in our full review with video!

58

We aren't sure when this happened but Wal-Mart is now carrying the Microsoft Surface Pro and RT tablets. You can also find the type and touch covers as well as adapters and power supplies for the Windows 8 tablets.

Online, Wal-Mart has the 32GB Surface RT for $349 or $449 with the touch keyboard. The Surface Pro is running $899 for the 64GB version and $999 for the 128GB version. Keyboards are running $129 for the type cover and $119.99 for the touch cover.  The bad news is that it appears that supplies are limited.

Nokia Lumia 1020 wireless charging cover listed on Amazon.com - bookmark for future purchasing

46

Waiting patiently for the Lumia 1020 from Nokia? Amazon.com appears to be too and the online retailer has one of the wireless charging back covers (Nokia CC-3066) for the Windows Phone.

Available in black and yellow, the accessory is not yet in stock but is priced at $39.99. We don't believe AT&T will carry this add-on so it's certainly worth considering.

Take the Talk Mobile Platforms survey for a chance to win a $100 Best Buy Gift Card!

7

If there's one thing that really gets our engines revving, it's numbers and quantifiable data. We might be nerds. As with the previous weeks of Talk Mobile, we're rounding out the week with a survey to compile that data we so love. Week four was all about platforms - not what makes Android better than iOS or BlackBerry 10 better than Windows Phone - no, it's about how we can make them all better and what the platform of the future is going to look like.

So here's the survey. It should only take a minute or two of your time, and because we like to give things away, completing the survey enters you for a chance to win a $100 Best Buy gift card. Is it an incentive? Sure. Could you use $100 to spend on some gadgets? Of course. Hit the link below to take the survey!

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.

EE to stock Lumia 625, continues expanding UK's 4G network

18

EE has announced plans to stock the Lumia 625, which was announced by Nokia yesterday in London. As well as taking up the most affordable 4G Windows Phone, the UK mobile operator has also expanded its LTE coverage to cover a further 10 locations. 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.

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.
