Microsoft quietly discontinues stock of Surface Pro 2 and a new Lumia tablet on the way?

142

Ever since the Surface Pro 3 announcement, the future of the Surface Pro 2 was in question. Would Microsoft continue to sell both or focus on their new redesigned Surface Pro 3, and what about Surface 2? The story is coming into focus a bit as it looks like Microsoft is putting the Surface Pro 2 out to pasture.

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.

Who has the best Windows Phone camera app? Nokia, Microsoft or Proshot?

320

Choosing the best Windows Phone camera app may be as difficult as choosing the best weather app. We are fortunate to have plenty of quality choices in the Windows Phone Store that choosing the best app to satisfy our shutterbug needs can be tough.

Windows Phone Central reader bijak_riyandi has started a Forums discussion debating the merits of three camera app choices. He pits the Nokia Camera, Microsoft Camera and ProShot apps up against each other to see which of these photography apps stands out from the pack. He tested all three on his Nokia Lumia 1020 running Windows Phone 8.1 looking at the speed of the app and the quality of the photos.

Top Rated Fast Food Apps for Windows Phone

Windows Phone Central App Roundup: Fast Food Apps

Fast food restaurants can be a convenient way to get a quick bite to eat while traveling or for those times you just don't feel like cooking at the house. There are a few Windows Phone apps designed to help you located these establishments and a few that will let you order and have take-away ready for you. Now that Fitness Month has past, these apps may come in handy if you are in the mood to cheat a little and enjoy a Big Mac or large Supreme Pizza every now and then.

We've tapped a small collection of these Windows Phone apps for this week's roundup. Some of which are official apps from the fast food restaurant while others are rather nice unofficial apps. Just keep in mind some of these apps have regional restrictions but the good news is that all the apps are available for 512MB devices.

Cortana outage causes the personal voice assistant to go quiet for some users

231

Cortana is still very much in beta and as such, we should expect some mishaps during these early stages of rolling out. Tonight, for some users, that scenario is becoming a reality.

Starting in the last few hours, a few Windows Phone users are complaining that Cortana is returning a witty error message when retrieving interests, aka the personal news and weather information displayed to users upon launching. Specifically, Cortana responds with "My suggestion well is dry. Try back later or add some more interests." Likewise, when you ask Cortana a question, she may respond with "I'm sorry, the internet and I aren't talking right now." strongly suggesting that Microsoft is experiencing some server issues.

Do you really use the Windows Phone 8.1 Notification Center?

900

Some may think this is a rhetorical question but there is a discussion going on in the Windows Phone Central Forums asking how much others are using the Notification Center with Windows Phone 8.1.

WPCentral Reader Blake Seaman presents the question and, not being not a social media user, found the Live Tiles were more than enough notification. Even pinning settings tiles to the Start Menu seemed to meet his needs.
