Win Phone 7.8 for Nokia only rolling out for pre-production devices

75

Yesterday we reported on a few cases of Nokia Lumia phones starting to receive Windows Phone 7.8 on their devices. At the time, Nokia (and Microsoft) were quiet on the matter having not announced anything official about the update, which seemingly was released early. Then again, with the updates sitting on Nokia’s servers, anything was plausible.

FlashStrobe: A Windows Phone 8 strobe light solution

3

If you are looking for a simple, bare bones Windows Phone 8 app to turn your camera LED light into a strobe light, take a look at FlashStrobe. Not sure it could get any more simpler.

The one screen app has a settings bar to regulate the strobe speed. You can set your Windows Phone light to flash any where from 0 to 20 flashes per second. Once you've set the pace, just tap the screen to turn on the strobe.

Nokia rising: stock breaks through $4 a share upon news of strong demand

52

For the first since mid April, Nokia’s stock has bounced nearly 5% on the day to put it at $4 a share. The news appears to be due in part to a report from Liberum Capital (reported by the Economy News) that the Lumia 920 is still selling well and what’s more, that it’s coming back in stock.

We reported yesterday that Amazon Wireless and even AT&T stores were now stocking the white, matte black and glossy red Lumia 920s for immediate purchase. The timing is crucial as we head into the last two weeks of the sales quarter and of course the holiday shopping season, as this gives Nokia an opportunity to try and meet presumed demand for their flagship phone.

Report: Camera fix for the Lumia 920 coming from Nokia this month

132

The Lumia 920 has impressed many with the PureView camera technology Nokia has installed inside the Windows Phone. The optical image stabilisation (OIS), software enhancements and Carl Zeiss lens are just a few features that work together to create some truly astonishing magic when taking shots in low light. 

However, there's an issue with photographs taken in good amounts light. Lack of detail, sharpness and while it's not a deal breaker, it does cause alarm especially when low light shots are that good. Thankfully, Nokia is set to release a firmware update to address problems raised by consumers.

HTC reportedly cancels large-screened Windows Phone amid resolution issues

119

One step forward and two steps back. Sometimes that old saying can be applied to Microsoft, who despite doing their best to stay ahead is often slightly behind.

Such is the case with Windows Phone 8 and the ability to now have 720P and 763x1280 resolutions. On screens that are 4.7” or smaller, it’s simply stunning and a nice treat to have but its apparent limits may now be its undoing as HTC has reportedly cancelled a new Windows Phone because of it.

The phone, possibly the rumored HTC Zenith, has allegedly been abandoned due to the fact that Windows Phone 8 cannot do 1080P resolution, which would scale nicely on post 4.8” devices. The boundary, something for which Android has no problem with, is said to have been the deciding factor for HTC as anything less than 1080P would not be as competitive.

Synchronising Windows Phone on a Windows PC or Mac

Synchronising Windows Phone on a Windows PC or Mac

How does one synchronise content between a Windows Phone and a Windows PC or Mac? Microsoft is continuously developing two separate clients, one for each platform, enabling consumers to charge, synchronise, update and backup their Windows Phone. While both clients are not identical in features and functionality, basic tasks can still be completed.

Moving content between smartphones and computers on competing mobile platforms is pretty much identical to Windows Phone. Apple makes use of iTunes for its management of the iPhone (as well as media players and other devices), while Android opts for a more integrated experience through the use of a file manager.  

So how does one get started with available clients?
