101

Nokia has today published its Q1 2013 financial report, which details some interesting numbers showing just how far the company has come since first hopping on to the Windows Phone train. While Nokia has reported an operating loss in the first quarter of 2013 (€150 million), €6.5 billion ($7.65 billion) in revenue was also highlighted. It's not looking all bad for the Finnish handset maker.

Nokia “EOS” PureView rumored for July, also working on a “phablet”

90

A little over a week ago we told you folks about Windows Phone supporting 1080p displays later this year. Windows Phone 8 added supported for both 720p and 768p displays, both of which were present on handsets like the Lumia 920 and HTC 8X at launch. The 1080p support will be available for handsets over 5 inches, allowing Windows Phone devices to compete against the surprisingly popular ‘phablet’ category. And it looks like Nokia may be one of the first to produce such a phablet, as early as July. But wait, there’s more.

Synchronise audio playback on multiple Windows Phones with soundSYNK

35

Have you ever wondered what it would be like for a Windows Phone to stream music to other Windows Phones so each one plays the same audio file at the exact same time? Well, we have too. But that trail of thought will be answered with soundSYNK, an upcoming exclusive app for Windows Phone. Once again the platform will have an offering that will be restricted to Windows Phone and it sounds brilliant. So, what's soundSYNK all about?

First images of Nokia’s aluminum Lumia, codenamed ‘Catwalk’, have surfaced [Updated]

327

We have no way of verifying the authenticity of these two images, but it appears to be of the upcoming Nokia Lumia ‘Catwalk’, a follow up to the Lumia 920 that reportedly sports a new aluminum chassis to help reduce the size and weight. The images showed up on the popular Chinese social network Sina Weibo.

No other details were given, but earlier information about Catwalk stated the device as having 4.5” display with an OCTA display, S4 1.5GHz dual-core CPU, 16GB of storage (down from 32GB), 2000mAh battery and an 8.7MP OIS camera with LED flash.

Basically three Windows Phone apps or games go on Thor’s Day, one of which will be an Xbox Live title. Well, a rose by another name smells just as sweet, and we’ll continue reporting on the Xbox sale game prior to Thursday as we’ve always done.

Time to eat candy and play Cut the Rope Experiments on Windows Phone!

86

Cut the Rope launched on Windows Phone more than five months ago. Surely gamers have had plenty of time to complete its 275 levels and collect all 825 stars (or at least the 300 needed for an Achievement). What do you do if you’re still dying for more Cut the Rope action?

Well, you could always buy the very similar (and also Xbox Live-enabled) Spider Jack for a buck. But that game’s been out for even longer, so I bet you’ve beaten it too! In which case, you’ll be glad to know that Russian developer ZeptoLabs has just released Cut The Rope: Experiments for Windows Phone 7 and 8. It packs another 150 levels of candy-feeding goodness, but it also costs a bit more than a dollar this time.

Rumor: Nokia’s PR2.0 major firmware update for Lumias aiming for a July release

144

We brought you the video last week of a forthcoming “major” firmware release for the Lumia 920 (and presumably other Windows Phone 8 Lumias) where the new “double tap to awake” and an on-screen clock were revealed.

That update is called PR2.0 with the PR standing for “press release” and it corresponds with the version number. For instance, firmwares that started with 1232.1249.XXXX.XXXX were PR1.0, the ones that started with 1232.5951.XXXX.XXXX were PR1.1 and the new 1308 firmware is PR1.1.5. The forthcoming PR2.0 is obviously a big jump and represents numerous changes and enhancements, of which we’ve only been privy to a few.

If you're looking for a slightly different experience and a more feature-rich alarm, then Ding may well be the solution. The free app offers more functionality than the system alarm app, with a more aesthetically pleasing interface and some Live Tile action.

Modern Combat 4 Review: Big-screen shooting on Windows Phone 8

76

The era of Gameloft Windows Phone 8 support is in full swing. Already the prolific publisher has graced us with an amazing racer (Asphalt 7), two less amazing but still decent open world games (Amazing Spider-Man and Dark Knight Rises), and a surprisingly enjoyable physics puzzler (Shark Dash). It’s almost like they’re single-handedly keeping the Xbox brand alive on Windows Phone.

Now Gameloft follows up with Modern Combat 4: Zero Hour, the second Windows Phone title with real-time online multiplayer and the platform’s only first-person shooter so far (until N.O.V.A. 3 comes along). FPS games on the phone are new for many of us - including me. Read on to find out how well Modern Combat 4 works as both a single-player and multiplayer game!
