Looks like AT&T giving out free charging plates to those who purchase a Lumia 920 may be part of a bigger proposition. The good news come by way of UK seller Phones4U who put up a link and details on how to get a free charging plate with your 820 or 920 purchase.

The site, nokiafreecharger.com appears to be very much like the free-Lumia 710 back-cover offer from earlier in the year, whereby you purchase your phone and then apply for a free add on accessory, in this case the Nokia wireless charging plate. Details of the offer state that it will be offered from November 2 through December 31st, with the application process starting on November 16th.  User should visit the site within 14 days of their purchase, punch in their unique IMEI number, fill out the application and they should have their new charging plate within 28 days.

Logoarama has been a rather busy Windows Phone game with regards to being updated. Not too long ago, the logo identifying game was updated giving the game a significant facelift and more logos. It was recently updated once again, taking the game to version 1.4.

The update adds 120 logos to the game, bringing the total number of logos you have to identify to 480. You also get the ability to share the game on Facebook and Twitter as well as the option to display the names to logos you've already identified.  For those not familiar, Logoarama presents you with various product/service logo and it's your job to identify them.

Oh... one more important feature of the update is that in celebrating reaching 30,000 downloads the game is being offered for free. The free offer will only last a few days so if you like trivia games, it might be the time to give Logoarama a try.

You can find Logoarama here at the Windows Phone Marketplace. Once the free promotion ends, Logoarama will return to it's original pricing of $.99.

Good news if you're one of the many who own a T-Mobile Lumia 710 (review) here in the U.S. Due to its popularity, Nokia has decided to bring back the Xpress-on cover offer whereby every 710 owner gets to choose one free color of their choice. Those colors include white, yellow, fuschia and cyan and users can just snap on the new back to add a splash of change to their white or black Lumia 710.

We have the cyan color for our white 710 and simply love it as it gives the phone a fresh new look (especially if you match up the Accent color in the OS).

To apply, simply head to visit www.nokiacolorcover.com to fill out the form, including your device's IMEI number and date of purchase. You will need to also mail in a copy of your receipt, the online submission form and the UPC and barcode panel from the box to complete the procedure. Offer expires April 30th.
