The Dark Knight Rises leaves its mark on your Windows Phone
In just a few hours, The Dark Knight Rises movie will begin showing at your local theatre. The movie's influence has already been felt with our Windows Phone especially the Nokia Lumia line.
We have the Dark Knight Rises and Batman: Origins apps available in the Nokia Collection on the Windows Phone Marketplace. T-Mobile is offering The Dark Knight Rises press-on covers for new Nokia Lumia 710's and then there's the limited edition The Dark Knight Rises versions of the Lumia 800 and 900.
While Nokia took the lead in promoting the Dark Knight Rises movie, there are other Batman oriented apps on the Marketplace. There's the DC Comics app that gives you access to all the DC Comics' heroes including Batman, Catwoman, Superman and more.
Then there's Batman Files (free app found here) that provides you with character (heroes and villains) information from the Batman series, news and reviews on Batman publications, and a brief history of Batman. Batman Family (free app found here) is a similar app but focuses it's information on the Batman related characters (the heroes).
Of all the Dark Knight Rises Windows Phone connections, I think the Dark Knight Lumia 900 stands out the most. Not only for the bat stamp on the back but the gray theme.
So what's your favorite Dark Knight Rises connection? Have you battled your way through the Nokia app or do you like the catching up on the Dark Knight through the DC Comics app? And most importantly, will you be at your local theatre at midnight to be one of the first to catch the new Batman film?
