The history of the start screen in Windows Phone 8

29

Live Tiles have been a much loved feature in Windows Phone since the platform launched back in 2010. Microsoft has since improved the functionality by extending the column support from two to four, enabling more tiles to be present on-screen at any one time. But how did Live Tiles in Windows Phone 8 come about at Microsoft?

Nokia mobile site lists the AT&T Lumia 920 for $149.99

106

AT&T has still not yet officially announced the Nokia Lumia 920, which is expected to come to the US carrier late next week (November 9th), but we're already quite certain of the price tag. 

Best Buy had a pre-sale and just the other day, eBay (with Best Buy) also had the Lumia 920 up for early orders. Both times the phone was listed at $149.99 (with a $599 off contract price). To us, that's all the info we really need but if you wanted just a little more proof of that super aggressive price tag, you can take a gander above in our pic.

Leaked Verizon document confirms HTC 8X wireless charging. Pushed back to Thanksgiving?

66

Although Windows Phone 8 was announced last week, we’re still waiting on Verizon to announce some dates for their release (luckily pricing was mentioned).

Windows Phone Central just received some internal training documents that share some points for reps to sell the phones to customers. What’s more, we have the first written confirmation of wireless charging for the HTC 8X. From the training document, Verizon notes the following: “Wireless charger is built in so you can charge your phone wirelessly with a wireless charging pad (sold separately)”

Wireless charging for the HTC 8X was first reported by the Verge a few days ago and although we had little reason to doubt them, it’s still nice to see that feature officially listed in these documents. Indeed, that really is a huge selling feature for what is already an excellent device. Although the 8X doesn’t match the AT&T-exclusive Lumia 920 in some features, HTC can check that off as not being one.

New Nokia video reveals Magenta Lumia 920

47

Sure, when it comes to the Lumia 920, Nokia has supplied us with black, glossy white, yellow, red and even the return of cyan. There's also the hard to find matte grey. But what about the more lady friendly magenta? We saw magenta come out for the Lumia 800 and eventually the 900 release but so far, none for the 920.

However, forum member Pontifex has spotted what clearly looks like a highly shiny, glossy magenta Lumia 920. Although it's only spotted at a distance, you can clearly see that curvature and the signature headphone jack of the Lumia 920. 

We're not really sure why Nokia doesn't come out with Magenta with the main release of the 920, instead presumably we'll have to wait awhile until they mix up that polycarbonate. But one thing we do know is that color looks to make a comeback should carriers ask for it. Check the video after the break.

Developer edition of the Nokia Lumia 920 is a one of a kind pentaband

86

With BUILD 2012 now behind us, we can talk a little about those Lumia 920’s that were handed out en masse to all the developers in attendance (media did not get them nor the Surface).

Seeing as BUILD attracts developers from all over the world, it would be a bit inconsiderate to give out a phone with limited 3G/4G capabilities as some would get the full package, while others would be restricted to their network. The problem is multi-dimensional as 3G GSM and 4G LTE networks vary quite widely, not to mention the combination of the two often required for great performance.

Australian retailer mistakes Lumia 920 pricing, honours erroneous price tag

40

We've previously seen retailers and carrier stores get things wrong. Whether it be labelling Windows Phones as Android handsets, or by listing incorrect specifications - mistakes can happen. But what about publishing incorrect pricing for the latest Nokia flagship? Australian retailer Harvey Norman made that very mistake when revealing the price for the Lumia 920.

Parcel Tracker returns to Windows Phone, also available for Windows 8

49

Good news for those who enjoyed the functionality of Parcel Tracker on Windows Phone. The developer has decided to support the app on the Store once again. This is after announcing their departure from the platform earlier last month. We've previously reviewed Parcel Tracker, as well as providing the developer with coverage for each major update applied, so it's good to see the well received app back on the Store. But that's not all that has arrived.

Latest Rumor: AT&T Nokia Lumia 920 coming Nov 9th with free charge pad

214

Folks on AT&T are getting a bit antsy and rightly so as the carrier has so far not been very stable with their WP8 lineup. Specifically when it comes to a release dates. So far we've heard October 21st (Best Buy pre-sale), November 2nd, November 4th, November 11th and yesterday was November 9th. Clearly AT&T is moving the date around for whatever reason but we think they're getting ready to announce things very soon, as last minute meetings are finalizing plans.

One of our AT&T insiders has confirmed the following information:

  • Friday, November 9th - Nokia Lumia 820 ($49) and Nokia Lumia 920 ($149)
  • The 920 will come with the wireless charge pad (free)

The 9th is the date that eBay/Best Buy was advertising yesterday as "expected availability" and it was there for a reason. Of course that same site evidently pulled the trigger early as within an hour of our post their site went down. When it returned, the Lumia 920 was all but scrubbed, only leaving the HTC 8X. Some of us, however, were able to get in our order with a 25% off coupon, locking in the Lumia 920 for $449 off-contract (but locked to AT&T).
