St. Louis Windows Phone meetup on December 1st

9

An upcoming Windows Phone meetup is on the horizon, which will take place in St. Louis. According to Rob who organises the events, this will be the last one for the foreseeable future year. But a few tricks are up his sleeve to drive interest to the set location. The plan is to give away a Lumia 900 and Lumia 710 to attendees, which will surely be superb stocking fillers for the upcoming festive holiday.

HTC 8X vs Nokia Lumia 920: Signature vs Flagship

155

(Editor's Note: Our Windows Phone Central app developer, Jay Bennett, weighs in on the Lumia 920, the HTC 8X and his experience with both. PS It's his birthday today, so take it easy on him!)

With the release of Windows Phone 8 there is something of a rivalry forming between the HTC 8X, the ‘Signature Windows Phone’, and the Nokia Lumia 920, arguably the flagship Windows Phone in terms of hardware & features.

Whilst many consumers have already made their decision we know that some will still be mulling over the options, or perhaps contemplating one due to unavailability of the other.

It is to those people that I direct this article, we are not interested in fuelling the culture of blindly supporting one device (or even manufacturer) over the other, which honestly I would like to see stop. The simple fact is there are two awesome top end devices available right now and you have the luxury of choice, you lucky consumer you.

Interview with Marko Ahtisaari, Head of the Nokia Design Team on the Lumia 920

38

Nokia has published a video on its YouTube channel. It's an interview with Marko Ahtisaari, Head of the Nokia Design Team, who talks about the Lumia 920. Revealing how the team pays close attention to minute details (hardware buttons, glass, etc.), he goes into explaining how the team wanted to ensure the build quality of the Windows Phone is at such a level so when consumers take the device out the pocket while outside, they're not concerned about its protection and cover it in bulky cases.

Skype and the constant syncing problem on Windows Phone 8

58

Ever since Windows Phone 8 came out people have rightly wanted Skype. And so they got it, albeit a preview edition which in our vernacular reads ‘beta’ and beta it is.

Previously we’ve passed on a few tips for people who have had battery issues and we can absolutely confirm one of them now: Skype. No, it doesn’t occur often in fact this was our first time with the problem ever since Skype hit the Store a few weeks ago.

The issue started when we were updating some contact info and then we force synced our Microsoft Account under Settings (hold down the account, hit Sync). Only problem was, it wouldn’t stop ...ever.

HTC 8S reportedly features keep-WiFi alive and SMS draft OS additions

26

The HTC 8S, though widely praised as exceptionally designed, has been MIA ever since the Windows Phone 8 launch a few weeks back. Rumor that we heard was HTC was finishing up a few last details to the software and may even had some early issues to fix before release. Regardless, it was just a matter of time before that mid-range device sees the light of day.

Nokia Deadmau5 contest goes live on Facebook, enter to win

14

The other day we reported on the super secret deadmau5 show occurring at the end of the month (Wednesday 28th November) in conjunction with Nokia. Much like the last show, which was to quote some of our California friends 'hella cool', the new deadmau5 concert is meant to celebrate the launch of Nokia's new Lumia lineup.

Why the UK consistently gets these awesome shows and not the US (or elsewhere) we'll never know...

HTC 8X Camera: A Closer Look

HTC 8X Camera: A Closer Look

While Nokia has been busy turning heads with the Lumia 920, HTC has quietly produced a decent Windows Phone in the 8X. The Lumia 920 touts an 8.7MP camera with optical stabilization and Pureview technology.  And while the 8X's camera may sound meager in comparison, it's not a bad performer in it's own right. If the camera is a factor in choosing the 8X, I think most will be pleased with the results.  

We touched on the camera slightly in the 8X's main review and now we'll take a closer look at things with regards to still images.
