Reminder: Preorders for the AT&T Nokia Lumia 925 are now live

52

Just in case you needed a little jolt to your memory, AT&T has now put up the all black Nokia Lumia 925 up for preorder today, with an anticipated ship date of September 11th. The device should be in stores on the 13th and if you preorder we bet a few of you will get the device a day early for some bragging rights.

The AT&T Nokia Lumia 925 will set you back $99 on contract, $21 a month with the Next upgrade program or a flat $429 off-contract. Featuring a 4.5” PureMotion HD+ AMOLED display, all black color scheme with an aluminum chassis and that 8.7MP PureView camera (with an added sixth lens element for increased sharpness), the Lumia 925 is one looker of a device. In fact while we gloat about the Lumia 1020’s photographic abilities, our Lumia 925 is constantly going with us too due to its fantastic design.

Official ‘Copy’ app from Barracuda Networks offers yet another cloud storage option for Windows Phone 8

30

When it comes to cloud storage on Windows Phone, most users seem content to utilize Microsoft’s SkyDrive system. After all, it ties into Xbox, PC, tablets, Windows Phone itself, the web and it is constantly being improved upon by the company.

However, people live different lives and have different circumstances, including having job requirements that require access to other cloud storage options. So with that, it’s good to see Copy (www.copy.com), an official app from Barracuda Networks, land on Windows Phone 8 (they already have clients for iOS and Android).

Nokia Audio gets a rare update, though changes remain a mystery

130

Besides PhotoBeamer, Nokia is also pushing out an update out for Audio today with a minor version change. For those who aren’t familiar, Nokia Audio is a sound settings app that gives access to the 7-band equalizer with 20 presets in addition to Dolby Headphone, Audio Leveling and now Flip to Silence in Amber devices (for phone calls). In short, it’s a pretty serious app if you listen to music on your Lumia (and after the update for Nokia Music yesterday, who isn’t these days?).

Surge, a Windows Phone game that combines arcade features with a little strategery

18

Surge is a Windows Phone game that is a unique version of the board game RISK but with an arcade game replacing the dice throws with the combat phase of the game. It mixes the strategy of RISK with the action of an arcade game.

Game play is very similar to what you would find with RISK and just as challenging. The game pace is a little slower due to the transition from board game to arcade which may not appeal to everyone. Surge has multi-player support for up to six players that can be a combination of computer or human (pass and play)

Surge is an interesting twist on a classic board game but isn't for those looking for a fast paced game for their Windows Phone.

It took four and a half months, but last week the official OnStar RemoteLink app for Windows Phone hit the Store. The comment section in that article showed a lot of you with Camaros, Silverados, and other cars from General Motors as happy campers. But does it work for all OnStar equipped vehicles?
