We've been sent a link to a video captured by Windows Phone Central reader Daniel Smith, which shows an exciting ride on a roller coaster - the Cheetah at Busch Gardens theme park, Virginia. As one can see from the above footage, the Lumia 920 did a superb job at capturing the excitement as the carts travelled along the winding track.

Nokia has published a new entry on its Conversations Blog, detailing the winner of its Music Short Film competition. The idea was to encourage filmmakers to showcase the unique and unknown music scenes in their region. It's reported that hundreds of entries were received, but the team managed to cut it down to just two finalists: Jason van Genderen and Bartosz Madejski.

Nokia has published a new video that shows off the Lumia 620 and how it can handle high levels of sound while recording. Much like we demonstrated with the Lumia 920 at a previous Nokia event in London, the company can pack some serious microphones inside its Windows Phones that help produce quality footage, especially when sound levels are higher than usual (concerts, etc.).

The Lumia 920 has a super camera, that much is already known. We've recorded some sample footage of a gig in full action to demonstrate the power of the Windows Phone, particularly in low-light environments. Now a band in Denmark has been filmed using a Lumia 920. The song being performed is called "Reach For The Sky," but the band itself is nameless for the time being.

'Phone Creeper' is Creepy

It was bound to happen.

Someone at XDA ("chetstriker") has gone and created what appears to be the mother of all "spy" apps for Windows Mobile.  Considering it is only at v0.3, it has quite the capability already.

Basically, you install this on someone's WinMo phone (they need .NET CF 3.5 installed) and then you send remote "command" SMSs to their phone which will give you what you want.  So what can it do?

  • secretly and remotely read incoming / outgoing sms
  • secretly and remotely delete incoming / outgoing sms
  • secretly and remotely view call history
  • bounce sms messages off remote phone to someone else.
  • create a pop-up message on phone
  • send a secret fart sound
  • secretly and remotely listen to person. (Initiates silent call back of person to your phone with thier speaker phone enabled)
  • also send listening in call to somebody else's phone

No doubt the programmer has some mad skillz here and we won't pass judgment on them for making this app.  Someone was bound to do it, and we suppose this is what makes WinMo such a powerful OS. 

Still, please be aware of your local and state laws on spying on people and seriously think about what you are doing if you use this app. In NY this is a felony. In fact, better to be safe than sorry here. If in doubt, do not touch.

Now sound off in comments on your thoughts about this app and the moral implications.
