The Windows Phone team have announced on the official blog that the Windows Phone Store has expanded to cover 37 new locations around the world. With the newly added markets, the store is available in 112 worldwide, while the website is accessible in 191. The team has continued to work on adding more locations to the list since the platform launched back in 2010.
Virgin Mobile Canada has completely sold out of HTC 8S stock, according to an alert on its website. It's displayed when attempting to add the Windows Phone to the basket for checkout. This is a refreshing look on Windows Phone popularity with HTC hardware continuing to sell as well as Nokia handsets.
LiquidLab has been updated yet again, as promised by the developer. We last looked at the puzzle game last month when it was bumped to version 2. The update introduced a number of new levels, new gametype and more. The issue we found was when attempting to play LiquidLab on a Windows Phone 8 device.

It’s been a little over two years since Windows Phone landed in the market. One of the first devices at that time was from Dell. The Venue Pro was one of the most unique handsets at launch, it was the only device with a portrait-oriented slide out QWERTY keyboard. That device had a small, loyal fan base for being really great at pounding out emails the old way. If you were hoping for Dell to release a follow up to that stoic phone, it’s time to move on as Dell has no plans to reenter the smartphone market.
A Delaware jury has ruled that Apple violated three patents owned by MobileMedia Ideas LLC. (MMI), a patent holding company that was created by Nokia, Sony and MPEG-LA.
The original complaint, filed in March of 2010, alleged that Apple's iPhone used technology protected by fourteen patents held by MobileMedia Ideas. However, all but three patents, 6070068, 6253075, and 6427078, were removed from the suit before it began. MobileMedia Ideas describes these patents as relating to "incoming/current call processing", "incoming call rejection", and "image capture/transfer."
Windows Phone Lockscreen apps seem to be appearing out of nowhere these days. You have Befriend, Paper Shuffle, Lock Themes and now you can add Flickr to the growing number of wallpaper sources. Flickr Live Wallpaper is a lockscreen wallpaper app that pulls images from the popular online photography source.
The nice thing about Flickr Live Wallpaper is that you can name your photo source, use multiple sources and if need be, crop the photos so they fit a little better on the screen.
Do you love mobile gaming? Are you active on Twitter and Facebook? Do you spend hours on end posting in Mobile Nations' communities? More important, have you ever wanted to attend the Consumer Electronics Show (CES) in Las Vegas and are available the second week of January next year? If you answered YES to all of these questions -- have we got an experience lined up for you!
There's no doubt that CES in Las Vegas is an event any tech junkie MUST attend at least ONCE in his or her lifetime. All of the latest and greatest (and sometimes bizarre) tech is at CES -- it's something to see. And even better than going to an event like CES as an outsider is to go insider. That's why we are thrilled to announce the "Mobile Nations 2013 CES Experience," in which six lucky individuals will receive round-trip travel and accommodations for CES 2013, courtesy of NVIDIA Tegra! Woohoo! Keep reading for all the details
Nokia has just begun rolling out an update for their Creative Studio app for editing your photos. The other day we gave you a tutorial on how to make the best of the app, as it’s quite handy for quickly touching up your images (and not downscaling their size).
Version 18.104.22.168 is now trickling out, updated from 22.214.171.124, though it may take awhile to hit the servers (only a few of our staff were able to see the update, so this is very fresh).
An angry shareholder has dropped a class-action suit that he filed back in May accusing Nokia of fraud. Robert Chmielinski, a Nokia investor, had claimed that Nokia spokespeople, including CEO Stephen Elop, knowingly made false statements about how its Lumia line of Windows Phones would boost their position in the global mobile phone market. The suit was based declining stock prices.
Photobeamer allows you to display your pictures on PC's or other web-enabled devices. Just run the app, head over to Photobeamer.com, scan the QR code that appears on the screen with your Lumia Windows Phone and your photos will appear on that web-enabled device. It can be a computer, tablet, or a friends phone. You just need a 3G/4G network or WiFi to send the pictures.
The updates for Microsoft’s latest mobile OS keep on coming and this one is very welcome indeed. Lazyworm have just released an update to their very popular Metrotube app for watching YouTube videos, joining the other new or updated Windows Phone 8 Apps. The update brings the release to version 4.0.
A long-time favourite on Windows Phone, the app makes great use of the Metro UI, taking full advantage of the new large tiles and introduces the ability to preload videos for later viewing. Read on past the break to find out more.
The Windows Phone 8 launch activities continue in full with the “Meet Your Match” demo crew hitting various sites around the UK. Today they are in London’s biggest shopping mall, Westfield Stratford.
The holiday season is upon us and this is the best time for Microsoft to make a splash highlighting Windows Phone 8. If you’re in London and want to check out some Windows Phone 8 device and have a chance at winning £100 read on past the break to find out more.
The handset will run the last version of the Windows Phone operating system, 7.5 and provide a solid spec for a very reasonable price but how will it be marketed? Today we see a video where Ricky tells us of his hopes and dreams. Step inside..
Today we saw an update arrive for Xbox Live title Cut The Rope, this update looks to have cured the graphical bug seen when launching the game from a dedicated tile on the Start screen.
The otherwise excellent app has exhibited a bug whereby pinning the game to the start screen and launching it would display an odd multi-colour screen and a progress bar. That same thing wouldn’t happen if the app was launched from within the Games Hub.
We contacted Nokia a short while ago to check in on their navigation apps and we were told to expect some updates soon. Today one of the first of the updates has arrived to bring the Nokia Drive+ Beta to version 2.1.
So what’s new? As well as the usual bug fixes they have introduced a better way to manage power consumption. Read on past the break for more details.
