Report: Nokia mentioned the most on social networks during Mobile World Congress

44

Mobile World Congress has been and gone for 2013, and it's now time for reports to blossom to reveal both insightful and useless (but interesting) data. Lissted specialises in Twitter accounts that are most influential to followers. The website has published a blog entry showcasing which brands were most discussed while Mobile World Congress 2013 was underway. The results aren't too surprising.

Joe Belfiore reveals more on Skype integration and "Other" storage fix

92

Good news for those who are on both Windows Phone 7.8 and the latest version of Microsoft's mobile platform. Joe Belfiore, who heads up the Windows Phone team and is the idol we all secretly praise in a dark, dim-lit room has revealed more information on both system-level Skype integration, as well as the pesky "Other" storage issue that many consumers are experiencing.

The tweets, which were published before Belfiore's tweet about the Windows Phone 7.8 Live Tile issue, went unchecked but we've been rightfully notified by more observant souls. So what's Microsoft looking at when it comes to further integration with its communications service, and will we finally see a fix for the shocking levels of internal storage stolen by the operating system?

Instagram spotted in Windows Phone advertisement, soon to be available? Probably not.

118

We've had an interesting image sent in from a reader, showing what appears to be an Instagram logo on the home screen of a Lumia 620 being advertised. The promotional material shows the Windows Phone in Portugal listed for 170 euro with a coupled package, but what's interesting about the device is definitely the mysterious use of the Instagram logo. Could this be a sign of what's to come, or is the app being falsely advertised?

Microsoft’s Belfiore says they’re working on a fix for 7.8 Tile update issue

53

It was just a few days ago where an MSDN forum thread prompted a response from Mark Chamberlain, Microsoft Principal Developer Support Escalation regarding the Windows Phone 7.8 Tile issue. The problem stems from some Live Tiles not getting updated or using too much data, neither of which are viable options for must users and is one heck of a bug to slip.

Last night, Microsoft’s Joe Belfiore, who leads the Windows Phone Team, even acknowledged the issue on Twitter. Responding to a question about static tiles, Belfiore noted that “We identified a minor issue where some 7.8 tiles stop updating and we are working on a fix now”.

It appears we missed mobile operator Mobilink already releasing the hardware last month. The Lumia 820 and Lumia 620 Windows Phones join the flagship in the line-up.

Verizon's flagship Nokia Lumia to be designated the 928?

127

According to an alleged screenshot from Verizon’s internal systems, Nokia’s new variant of the Lumia 920 for Verizon will get the designation of 928. What’s more, the information has been listed in Verizon’s system with a January release, indicating that perhaps this device was delayed a bit with internal testing.

Indeed we recently did catch a Lumia variant heading through the FCC a few weeks ago and the reported device codename is ‘Laser’. Not much is known about the device except that it may have an aluminum body to help reduce the size and that a big marketing push may be accompanied by its launch.

Tennis in the Face for Windows Phone 8, not your typical serve and volley

20

Tennis in the Face is a fun, unique game for your Windows Phone 8 device. It's a tennis game but not in a traditional sense of things.

You play the role of Pete Pagassi in his quest to save the city from the evil grasp of Explodz. You travel around the city map smashing evil minions with tennis balls and exploding soda cans.

Graphics are great, game play challenging and Tennis in the Face is a nice addition to the Windows Phone gaming library.

Catch a little air with SkateDog

SkateDog is a jumper styled game for your Windows Phone much like Rainbow Rapture and Penguin. You just control a dog on a skateboard instead of a vengeful rainbow or hungry penguin.

With SkateDog you are racing Pluft ET (space alien) to a race for a hamburger. You guide your dog over hill and dale while Pluft races along in his space ship (doesn't seem very fair). Along the way you can collect glasses of soda for a boost of speed and dog treats for bonus points.

SkateDog is a fun game for your Windows Phone and challenging enough to keep you interested in things. I'm not sure it could hold up to marathon gaming sessions but it is a nice game to pass the time with.
