Jessica Alba wields red Lumia 920 Windows Phone

Jessica Alba with Nokia Lumia 920

Jessica Alba has upgraded to the Lumia 920 and it appears as though she has gone with the red choice. We last looked at the model / actress when she was spotted sporting a cyan Lumia 900, so it seems she's been able to upgrade early, thanks to Nokia. It's clear to spot the new centred position for the headphone port, as well as the new Windows Phone logo being used.

We've seen Windows Phones in the hands of other celebrities, as well as being used in music videos and commercials, but it's good to see such a new handset handed out to those who could attract some attention.

Microsoft unveils new Windows website with a new look

10

Now that Windows 8 is official, Microsoft is still going forward with the redesign and reimaging. Such is the case when you go to Windows.com or even their Blogs.Windows.com sites as both are showing a high-contrast look with the new logo.

We have to admit that we really like this new look. It’s bold, striking and of course it keeps in line with Microsoft’s Modern UI approach. Will it sell PCs? Not necessarily but Microsoft’s new look and image are key factors for consumers and we think they nailed it.

Nokia Lumia 820 to be priced at £379.99 in the UK?

26

While we ramp up for the launch of Windows 8 next week there is still a fair few questions about pricing for Lumia devices.

Someone has spotted the Lumia 820 going for the sum of £379.99 on a system. As with all such pre-pricing, this could be fact or fiction as nothing has actually been revealed on pricing as yet.

Windows Phone App Review: Photo Shader

Windows Phone App Review: Photo Shader

Photo Shader is a decent little photo editor for your Windows Phone. The app has a healthy amount of filters and effect to apply to existing photos in your Pictures Hub or new images captured with your Windows Phone camera.

Layout is simple and clean with most filters/effects having setting to fine tune the application. When you first select a photo to edit, cropping tools will appear to let you crop and/or rotate the image. From there, all you need to do is apply your effects and save when done.

Section of Nokia Lumia manuals display all the outside bits and bobs

Don't go plugging your lead into the wrong port now!

While many may write this off as 'common sense', some believe that sense really isn't all that common, especially when it comes to technology. Parts of the manuals that will be accompanying the Lumia 920 and Lumia 820 have been published by WindowsMania.pl. We previously took a look at how the insides look when both Lumias have been taken apart, now we get to see both back in one piece.

South Africa: Windows 8 and Windows Phone 8 heading your way!

Much has been said about Microsoft getting ready to release a whole bunch of new products, but it’s easy to forget that smaller markets often get left out, and don’t get anything close to the US release dates. But here’s some good news for you South African folk. You will be receiving Windows 8, and Windows Phone 8 devices in the very near future!

Comparing sensitivity on Lumia 920, Lumia 820 and iPhone 5 using gloves and fruit

23

Test-Mobile.fr managed to get hold of the Lumia 920, Lumia 820 and compare them both to the iPhone 5. But instead of looking at design, speed, etc. the team decided to whip out a banana they brought along for lunch and test screen sensitivity on the two products. As expected, the Lumias clearly beat the iPhone 5 by a clear mile, but the banana test does work on the iPhone in certain parts, so we shouldn't rule the Apple device out completely.

Xbox and Windows Phone Store and services temporarily down

52

We’ve been getting tips for the last few hours from users that the Windows Phone Store has not been working, specifically when you try to go download an app, you get an error message (we’ve seen a few mentioned).

As it turns out, heading to support.xbox.com alerts us to what appears to be a general system failure on several fronts, including Xbox 360, Windows Phone, Windows 8, Zune PC Client and more. That’s the bad news.

Tracking your Microsoft Surface RT Tablet shipment

408

If you pre-ordered a Microsoft Surface RT and have yet to receive shipping confirmation, you may still be able to track your Surface shipment.  Even without a tracking number. 

Here's how to go about doing it.

  • Just go to the FedEx or UPS websites and choose track package by reference.
  • Enter your Microsoft Order number and delete the "MS" prefix.
  • Leave the shipping date as the 24th and enter your destination Country and postal code.

If your Surface order has left the factory, your tracking information should pop up. To be honest, I was getting a little worried that my order status was still listed as "processing" with a delivery date listed as October 26th.  In tracking my order by reference, I was relieved to see that my Surface RT is still slated for Friday delivery.

Chime in down below in the comments if you've found your shipping information and head on over to this WPCentral Forums discussion on the Surface shipments.

Thanks, Mr. Brown and abond32, for the tip!
