The Dark Knight Rises on your Windows Phone

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 (opens in new tab)) 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 (opens in new tab)) 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?

  • Hey George on batman arkham city u can play as that batman on that book u have under the phone
  • I wish the 'Gray Theme' could be downloadable!
  • Detailed tiles would be awsom
  • Would love the gray theme on my 900. Had it on my HD2 and it looked awesome!
  • Are Nokia Lumia phones in the movie?
  • I wouldn't include Batman Files or Batman Family since they're infringing on DC Comics' copyright.
  • I wouldn't worry too much.  For all we know it's "The Park Knight Returns" by Frank Mill'. :P
  • The DC Comics app for Windows Phone is the red-headed stepchild of the Comixology family. They give it the bare minimum of support. They don't even list it among the available apps on the Comixology website.
  • That sux
  • I wish Batman: Arkham City Lockdown app was an Xbox LIVE game.
  • I'm going 2 the trilogy!
  • Nokia is doing a good job at promoting their line of WP. I was at lunch an spotted a kid with the 710. I asked him to see it and the first thing he mentioned was that he had the Dark Knight cover. He also stated he loves the device. It actually looks and feels good in the hand.......but I prefer my L900; speaking of which, I purchased the Amzer Shellster Shellcase w/Holster today for $14.99...great deal, pick yours up if you haven't!
  • What about the tdkr prologue app???
  • I'm going to 11:45am show tomorrow
  • Slow day for wp news huh?
  • Nice how lumia gets all these special apps that those of us with 1st Gen devices can't.
  • I think so too. •Sent from my Lumia 900• :P
