Fan renders of alleged Microsoft Lumia 1030 have us drooling

390

A few days ago, photos of an alleged Lumia 1020 successor appeared online in China. The pictures were clear, bright and provided multiple angles of what many are calling the 'Lumia 1030', which follows the current x30 series of Lumia releases.

Now, a site called PhoneDesigner.eu has made some renders based off those images to give an even clearer look at what may be the next-big-thing from Microsoft. The renders are, of course, based on many assumptions, so take them with a grain of salt.

Normally we do not post fan renders of phones, but in this case, due to the original photos being of such high quality, we are making an exception.

Game of Thrones Episode 1 review: Adventure and intrigue on Xbox One, 360, and PC

15

Telltale Games has been busy lately. Last week the studio released the first episode of Tales from the Borderlands on consoles and PC, celebrating the game's premiere at the Alamo Drafthouse. Shortly thereafter Telltale announced the impending arrival of Game of Thrones, another episodic adventure game based on the hit HBO series of the same name.

Game of Thrones Episode 1: Iron from Ice just has arrived on Xbox One and 360, PC, and Playstation systems. Whereas Tales from the Borderlands was a lighthearted and humorous adventure, Game of Thrones tells a much darker and bloodier story. Fans of the show and books wouldn't have it any other way. We've run through the entire first episode and made lots of tough choices in order to bring you this full review.

US Carrier Apps review: a free Windows Phone catalog of carrier apps

42

Windows Phone is one of the more carrier-agnostic platforms out there. You can get one or more Windows Phones from every major carrier in the US, and many of the smaller ones like Cricket too. And many of those carriers choose to offer proprietary apps in order to differentiate their Windows Phone devices or build carrier loyalty.

Keeping up with all those apps can be tough, especially if your carrier doesn't make them easy to find. At the same time, maybe you want to use one carrier's apps on another carrier's device. That takes a little trickery. Even then, you still have to find said carrier-specific apps. Loyal Windows Central reader Thals1992 has developed a free app that links to every known carrier app. US Carrier Apps is a simple app that could come in very handy when you're looking for just the right proprietary app.
