ST Microelectronics releases Nokia's gyroscopic stabilisation tech to the open market

62

It's no secret that Nokia Windows Phones sport the most advanced camera tech in the industry. Competition is close – we compared the Lumia 1520 against the iPhone 5 in benchmark tests – but the Finnish company still reigns supreme. A part of what makes certain Lumia Windows Phones so good when it comes to snapping those special moments comes down to gyroscopic stabilisation. Previously exclusive to Nokia, this technology for smartphones is now available on the open market.

Well, you did it. You broke Nokia’s planned design seminar, which is to occur this Thursday. Earlier this week, we reported on our renewed partnership with Nokia DVLUP, their design seminar for Windows Phone apps and a chance to win a one-on-one design consultation with Arturo Toledo.

The idea was for you to register for the ´Lessons Learned´ online seminar, occurring on January 30th (8:00 PST | 10:00 CST) where Arturo would share the most common design challenges, after reviewing dozens and dozens of apps. That session is still planned, so no worries there if you signed up, but there was an overwhelming amount of you who wanted to join who could not.

Windows Phone 8.1 notifications settings screen revealed in new mockup

272

Back in December, a really poor (but accurate) photo of the Windows Phone 8.1 notification settings screen was revealed on Twitter by a Salman M. At the time, we confirmed internally that it was real, though possible older.

Now, a clearer mockup of that photo has been posted by the site WinSource. We say ‘mockup’ because it is technically not a real photo of the OS in action. Rather, it’s a re-creation of that photo and what it conveys. Having said that, what is shown in truly based off of Windows Phone 8.1.

2020: My Country breaks ground on Windows Phone and Windows RT

34

Last month, Russian publisher Game Insight’s popular city building game 2020: My Country launched on Windows 8. The game did not run on Windows RT at that time, nor was the Windows Phone 8 version ready. Optimizing for ARM-based hardware takes a little more time, and Game Insight wanted to get the lead version out in the wild in the meantime.

One month later, 2020: My Country has arrived on Windows Phone 8! And the Windows RT version is now available as well. If you enjoy free to play town-building games, the sequel to the original My Country is definitely worth a try. Read on for impressions and Store links!
