Facebook Messenger is one our favorite apps on Windows Phone. It's an essential app to stay in contact with all your friends on Facebook. The app hit Windows Phone earlier this year but has only picked up one substantial update so far. That update added the ability to save photos, improved notifications and included overall performance boosts. Today we're getting another big update to Facebook Messenger on Windows Phone. Changelog and details after the break.

Microsoft's next flagship Windows Phone to come out in November on 3 US carriers, features 3D Touch

410

Over at the site @evleaks, a report about Nokia's (now Microsoft's) smartphone road map for 2014 has been teased with some device names like 'McLaren,' 'Rock,' 'Tesla' and 'Superman.' While 'Rock' is reported to be an entry-level Lumia 530 for T-Mobile and cricket, 'Tesla' and 'Superman' are described as mid-range devices for AT&T and Verizon, though no specifics are given. The Verge has previously described 'Superman' though as having a 4.7 inch display and a massive 5 MP front-facing camera.

I can add to the story quite a bit, specifically some details around 'McLaren.' But first, I should mention that AT&T is slated to get the new green Lumia 1520 sometime in late June or July as part of the Windows Phone 8.1 launch. I don't know if it'll be 32 GB internal or 16 GB, but with micro SD expansion, the ability to install apps and games to the card and 128 GB support, it doesn't matter anymore.

Today, the company announced that the elite private Cincinnati Country Day School in Cincinnati, Ohio will be the first educational institution to use the 12-inch Surface Pro 3. It's good to see the up-to $23,600 tuition that CCDS parents pay to go towards a high-end Windows tablet like this.

Microsoft's first Surface Pro 3 commercial hits all the right points

181

Goodbye dancers. While the first ads for Microsoft's Surface tablet were geared around either dancing or comparing it with the iPad, when it comes to the Surface Pro 3, Microsoft has made the smart decision to highlight what it is that makes the tablet so great. From the keyboard to the display to the pen — with its easy activation of OneNote — this ad hits all the right points. It's not trying to be abstract, it's not trying to be cheeky, and it's not making the case that it should be compared to the iPad or any other tablet.
