Lumia 2520's superior outdoor readability featured with heartwarming story in Nokia's latest video

28

If you didn’t like the dramatic Nokia Lumia 2520 video, maybe this one is better. It shows off the excellent outdoor readability of the Lumia 2520 with a nice animated story that almost makes us cry. Nokia tells us they worked with Blue Zoo, a BAFTA award winning animation studio based in central London. Watch the video after the break.

70

Another morning and another crop of app updates.

This morning we only have four (so far), but we’re sure that will change as the day goes on. Let’s get these four out of the way, since they’re some pretty big apps or games for your Windows Phone, including Flixster finally (finally!) getting UltraViolet support for Windows Phone 8.

Day Eleven of Microsoft’s 12 Days of Deals brings savings to the JBL Headphones (updated)

37

Update: It appears the sales price for the JBL J55 Headphones is $29.95 while supplies last.  

Update 2:  The $29.95 sales price was the door buster price.  The sales price has jumped to $49.95, while remaining supplies last.

Day Eleven has arrived for Microsoft’s 12 Days of Deals promotion with the savings spotlight being cast on the JBL J55 On-Ear Headphones.  It may not be as exciting of a deal as yesterday’s free AT&T Nokia Lumia 1520, but if you are in the market for a Bluetooth speaker, it could save you a few bucks.

As with all the 12 Days of Deals specials, the sale begins at 7am PST/10am EST.  We expect the first twenty customers at participating Microsoft Stores (US/Canada) and the first one hundred online customers should be able to pick the JBL Headphones for a steal of a price.  After the initial door buster deals are gone, the headphones will be priced at a considerable savings while supplies last.

4Effects for Windows Phone 8, when just one filter won’t do

15

4Effects is an interesting photography app for Windows Phone 8.  While most photo editing apps will let you apply effects filters to your photos, 4Effects divides your photo into four parts where you can mix and match effects filters.

While 4Effects has potential, I am not sure if the Windows Phone 8 app would be your “go-to” photo-editing app.  It can come in handy for unique edits to your photographs and save a few reservations; 4Effects is not a bad app to consider for your Windows Phone photography app library.

Deal alert: Nokia DT-900 wireless charging plate for $12 shipped

134

AT&T has the Nokia DT-900 Wireless Charging Plate in black or yellow for $12.25 with free shipping. That is too cheap to pass up. The wireless charging plate is Qi-compatible, so it will work on devices like the Nokia Lumia 920, Lumia 925 with charging case, and Lumia 1020 with charging case. It will not work with AT&T’s Lumia 1520 for reasons that have been explained in a separate post. Follow the steps after the break to take advantage of this deal.

Poll: Do you like Xbox Video for Windows Phone 8?

201

Last year, Windows Phone 8 infamously launched without the ability to watch your content from Xbox Video. It was a sore point of contention when Windows Phone fans would argue the overall strengths of the Microsoft ecosystem. Earlier today, Microsoft finally launched a dedicated app for Xbox Video (and surprised us with a new app for Xbox Music). So, how are you liking it?

Ballmer: Microsoft’s Surface is a supplement to what OEMs offer

132

Steve Ballmer announced his retirement from Microsoft in August. He said he’d step down within 12 months, once Microsoft finds a new CEO to take his role. Yesterday we learned that Microsoft has made a lot of progress in their CEO search and expects to finish the hunt in early 2014. In the meantime, Steve Ballmer is working hard at Microsoft and doing some interviews as he wraps up his legacy. Here’s another from Mary Jo Foley that talks about Apple as a competitor and how Surface was a harder decision than Xbox.
