AT&T Lumia 830 to get special Fitbit Flex promo through Microsoft

101

The Nokia Lumia 830 is seeding out globally to retailers and carriers with the phone expected to launch in the US on AT&T Friday, November 7. The 5-inch Windows Phone nicknamed the 'affordable flagship' won our initial praise last week in our first-impressions article.

Windows Central has now learned some marketing plans for the Lumia 830 when it arrives early next month for AT&T, and it includes a Fitbit Flex promotion. Evidently, Microsoft has a separate SKU for the phone that includes a free Fitbit Flex with every purchase. The deal will be a limited-time-offer or until the bundle runs out of stock. It will be available both at Microsoft Stores as well as AT&T ones as well.

Microsoft Account two-step verification: What it is and why you want it

92

Beginners' Tips Series!

Now, more than ever before, people have tons of data about themselves stored online. We have information in emails, bank accounts, social media, and countless other places. And at no other time has all of this data been more at risk.

New screenshots prove that Pure Pool is almost ready for Xbox One

29

Earlier this summer, UK-based developer VooFoo Studios and Ripstone (who also published Stick it to the Man) announced That Pure Pool would be coming to Xbox One as part of the ID@Xbox program. Pure Pool is set to be the first pool game (and I don't mean the kind of pools that The Sims 4 lacks) on Microsoft's latest console. The Playstation 4 and PC versions landed in July, but the Xbox One version has seemingly been stuck outside of the pool hall, waiting for the bouncer to let it in.

It looks like the line has been moving for Pure Pool after all, because we just got some fresh Xbox One screenshots in today. The creators even promise that a release date will be announced within the coming weeks. I'm betting mid-late November. That's prime pool game season, if you ask me. Especially because it'll be too cold to hop in the pool outside by then. Keep reading to check out the new screens and details!

Deadly Racer, blast your way through traffic with this Windows Phone game

10

If you've ever had the urge to strap a fifty caliber machine gun to the hood of your car and blast your way through rush-hour traffic, the Windows Phone game Deadly Racer might be a gaming title worth trying.

The 3D racer calls upon you to work your way through traffic, destroying vehicles to earn points and eventually unlock vehicles that are more powerful. The endless track is full of targets to destroy both from your lane of traffic and any oncoming vehicles.

Steering controls will take a little time to get used to but nothing impossible. Available for low memory devices, Deadly Racer does have a certain level of appeal but could also use a little fine-tuning.
