74

It looks like Microsoft and Nokia have a new Lumia 930 flipcover that complements the phone and brings the color aesthetics from the device to the protective accessory. As its name implies, the Flipcover is a case that Lumia 930 snaps into and has a protective flipcover flap that will protect the screen when the device isn't currently in use.

In fact, it's so official, the developer has even linked to this version on its website. So, what exactly does Piano Tiles provide players?

Lumia 1525 said to be coming to T-Mobile, possibly to fill high-end void

206

Windows Phone Central has learned through various Microsoft Stores that all or most stock of the Surface Pro 2 and Surface Pro 2 accessories are being sent back to Microsoft. A few stores are keeping units on hand for customer issues, should any arise, but many stores now have zero stock with no plans to carry it any longer. It is not clear if other retailers are following suit or if Microsoft is mandating this only for their own stores.
