The popular messaging app WhatsApp has been quiet lately for updates on Windows Phone. In fact, it has not been updated since the end of June, which is a very long time in technology. The good news is the private beta was receiving updates at a steady clip, including one yesterday.

The latest version of WhatsApp beta is 2.11.574.0 and with it are a few new features that have been added over the last few months. Here is your first look.

How to remove Windows 10 Technical Preview from your Surface Pro 3

60

Advanced Tip Series!

There has been a tremendous outpouring of comments on Windows 10 Technical Preview, both positive and negative. Some people have had a lot of luck running it while others have run into problem after problem. When you're dealing with a software preview, that's just the nature of the beast.

You may be one of the technical daredevils that boldly loaded Windows 10 on your Surface Pro 3. You may also be one of those sad souls who now regret that decision. If you fell into the second category and neglected to heed all the warnings about creating recovery media for your device, Windows 10 install has almost certainly wiped out the recovery partition on your Surface. This missing recovery partition makes an easy return to Windows 8 impossible.

Verizon Lumia 735 not scheduled until early 2015

270

Verizon has yet to announce the Nokia Lumia 735 as coming to their portfolio, and there may be a good reason for that: it is not due until 2015. Multiple sources have confirmed with Windows Phone Central that the Verizon branded Lumia 735 with LTE, which is in development, is currently not scheduled to come out this calendar year.

Early reports suggest there may be some stability issues with Verizon's dual CDMA/LTE network although it is just as likely that Verizon only wants to schedule it then for their own internal reasons.

AT&T Lumia 830 comes with two dual-use Qi/PMA wireless charging covers in green, black

226

Starting in early November, AT&T is expected to begin selling the new Nokia Lumia 830 in addition to the HTC One for Windows. The two phones offer different price points for those looking for a new Windows Phone, and they should bode well for the 'premier' Windows Phone carrier this holiday season.

Yesterday, we reported that Qi wireless charging is included with the AT&T version. This turnaround is important since AT&T had previously shied away from supporting Qi, instead backing the alternative PMA wireless charging standard. Today, we can expand this further with more details.

NBA 2K15 review – The basketball game to beat on Xbox One and 360

22

The NBA 2K series from 2K Sports and Visual Concepts has been the reigning champ in the basketball simulation for the past couple of years. It helps that EA's NBA Live series have dropped the ball (no pun intended). But even then, NBA 2K has simply been playing a mean game, consistently delivered the most realistic presentation and gameplay possible.

Everything you loved about 2K14 is here in NBA 2K15 for Xbox One and 360 and most of it has been improved upon. This year's version of 2K on Xbox One is easily the best so far, but that doesn't mean it isn't hiccup free.

Nokia Lumias grab Extras + Info update, causes false Lumia Denim firmware sightings

230

Microsoft this morning pushed out an update for the Extras + Info system app found on Nokia Lumia smartphones. The Extras + Info area is where users can find out what firmware version they are currently on, like Lumia Black, Lumia Cyan, or Lumia Denim.

Today's update arrives without a changelog; however it is safe to surmise that it is laying the groundwork for the forthcoming Lumia Denim update for those still on Cyan. In fact, many people have tipped us after updating to tell they now have the Lumia Denim update.

This claim of having Lumia Denim though is false.
