Review: Nokia Wireless Charger stand by Gibbage

113

Many will remember the name Gibbage from the 3D printed cases the designer offers for various Windows Phones. Well, Kevin "Gibbage" Miller hasn't put away his three-dimensional drawing board just yet and has come out with a stand for the Nokia DT-900 wireless charger.

As with the Gibbage cases, the stand is printed by Shapeways.com and comes in a variety of colors. The plastic construction feels solid with just a bit of flex to allow for easy placement and removal of the charger.

If you're looking to convert your DT-900 into a night stand or just have grown tired of your Nokia Lumia Windows Phone laying flat, the Gibbage stand is worth a look.

Foul Play Xbox 360 Review: a rousing XBLA brawler

Seeing as how we didn’t get a new Xbox Windows Phone game last week, we’ll look at a downloadable Xbox 360 game instead. Foul Play is a recent Xbox Live Arcade game from UK-based publisher Mastertronic.

Foul Play’s title might make you think the game would have something to do with birds, but it actually refers to corrupt goings-on at the turn of the twentieth century. With a unique setting, witty writing, and charming art style, Foul Play is a beat-em-up worth playing. Head past the break for our full review!

AT&T Nokia Lumia 1520 to have only 16GB of storage? Say it ain't so!

454

It looks as if the cannibalization of the AT&T Nokia Lumia 1520 Windows Phone hasn't stopped. First you have the omission of the built in wireless Qi charging. Now it appears as if the Lumia 1520's internal storage will be 16GB instead of 32GB that was noted during Nokia World.

Specs for the AT&T Nokia Lumia 1520 at Windowsphone.com and at Nokia's U.S. product page for the Lumia 1520 lists the storage as being only 16GB. The only saving grace is that it is noted that the Lumia 1520 will have expandable memory (micro-SD card slot) up to 64GB.
