Win an Xbox One Titanfall Bundle from Windows Central!

1430

A week ago we announced that we were evolving from Windows Phone Central to Windows Central, and with our name change would be a lot more coverage on all things Windows. On top of bringing you all the Windows Phone news, we're ramping up our coverage on everything else Windows offers, including gaming! As you probably already know, this means we're bringing you as much quality Xbox One Twitch streams as we can. Later this week you can catch some Halo: The Master Chief Collection game play on Wednesday and Thursday, and every stream is a chance to chat (and sometimes play along with) the Windows Central staff and win tons of prizes.

In the meantime, we have an Xbox One Titanfall bundle to give away this week here on the blog!

T-Mobile announces Lumia 925 Windows Phone 8.1 update

310

Update 3: The 8.1 update is live as our T-Mobile Lumia 925 now has Lumia Cyan (and it is also enrolled in the Preview for Developers program)

It looks like T-Mobile US is getting ready to unveil finally the Windows Phone 8.1 and Lumia Cyan update for its venerable Lumia 925.
