16

This one has just appeared for us in the Nokia Collection for Windows Phone 7, essentially a central place to get news, tips and apps for your Lumia devices.

The app seems to have hit the Marketplace a few days ago but could possibly have been released earlier if reviews for the app are anything to go by. We have reached out to Nokia for confirmation but in the meantime we take a look at what this seemingly new addition to the collection has to offer. Step inside, step inside.

Nokia Xpress: Get smart with how you use the web

54

Calling itself a ‘content discovery’ app in the Windows Phone Store, Nokia Xpress seems to sell itself a little short. At the core it’s designed to help save your data plan by reducing the size of webpages before sending them to you but there is much more here.

They have also built in the ability to create a slick looking personalised “magazine” from your favourite websites which are then made available to read offline. All this and more and has been rolled into one powerful app, its now left beta and is available to download today. We take a closer look at the final version.

Since then the app has been updated a number of times and has now been bumped to version 2.7. It's worth noting that this is not a simple IE wrapper either. UC Browser is the real deal, offering a serious solution for those who wish to use something other than Internet Explorer.

Update Now: Windows Phone 8 devices get maps refresh

54

We reported earlier in the week on s slew of updates for Maps but in case you missed it these apply to all Windows Phone 8 handsets. Windows Phone 8 has been designed with the ability to download and install maps that can be used offline.

From time to time these will get updated with improved detail or just changes that normally happen to maps over time. Unlike other updates the maps don’t appear to have a push mechanism so you’ll have to kick the process off manually. Read on to find out how.

Babel Rising 3D patched for Windows Phone 8, but KenKen downgraded to 7

17

The incompatibility between certain Xbox Windows Phone 7 games and the new Windows Phone 8 OS has been frustrating for gamers alike. More than 20 Xbox games don’t work with WP8, a problem that Microsoft initially tried to sweep under the rug by pulling those titles’ pages from the Windows Phone Store.

Since then, one affected title became compatible with WP8 (The Oregon Trail), while a new game became unavailable due to incompatibility (Shoot 1UP). You might say the two games canceled each other out, progress-wise. The same thing has just happened again, with Babel Rising 3D reappearing and Capcom’s just-released and far superior KenKen disappearing from WP8. The incompatible list can’t seem to drop below 25 games!

Don’t worry, we actually have a tidbit of good news to report on Microsoft’s handling of the WP8 incompatible games. Check it out after the break.

T-Mobile HTC 8X Portico OS Update is now live, being delivered

82

T-Mobile and HTC have begun pushing out Windows Phone 8 "Portico" to HTC 8X phones at 1PM ET.

T-Mobile and HTC have had quite a back and forth recently regarding the Windows Phone 8 “Portico” update (build 10211) We first heard about the 8X update just a few days ago and the original intent was to roll it out yesterday, December 19th. But at the last minute, we received word that T-Mobile was halting the rollout due to some last minute "tweaks".

The fear of course was that this could stretch into weeks as Microsoft, T-Mobile and HTC work to fix whatever it was holding up the update. Luckily, the delay now looks to be have been only 24 hours as T-Mobile and Microsoft have just now thrown the switch, delivering the update to customers.

Obviously, that did not happen. And truth be told, we forgot that it even existed until an email dropped in our inbox today, noting that the company is looking to hire a Windows Phone dev for a mobile app, specifically for Windows Phone 8.

Microsoft and HTC cozy up in push for Win Phone 8, look to address ongoing issues

164

Earlier in the week Bloomberg stated that HTC had scrapped plans for a 5” or higher Windows Phone due to the inability of the OS to scale up to 1080P. Sure, the device could pass muster with 720P or 768P but for a major device like that to hit now or in early 2013 would behind the competition.

Now it’s being reported that Microsoft’s Ballmer met directly with the CEO of HTC, Peter Chou, when he passed through Taiwan recently. In of itself this is not news as the two mega CEOs reportedly exchange emails and meet several times a year. But in this case, the limiting resolution of the Windows Phone 8 and presumably other areas of contention were brought up.

Samsung ATIV S Windows Phone wins big, gets certified for China

12

The Samsung ATIV S may be the next Windows Phone 8 device to hit the shelves in China.

The Chinese Ministry of Industry has certified it to receive a network license, green-lighting it for release. There's no official word yet on when the ATIV S may make it's way there or even what carriers may offer it. CNMO, the site who reported on this, believes that when it finally does arrive it will fetch around 4,000 yuan ($642). This is a bit cheaper than Nokia's recently-released Lumia 920T, a rebranded Lumia 920 designed to run on China Mobile's TD-SCDMA network.
