Availability

It's going to be quite the busy couple of days next week, particularly around and on November 22nd. Why, you ask? If you've just emerged from the cave of wonders and dreams, the Xbox One will be launching on the day, alongside the Lumia 1520 and Lumia 2520 from Nokia--of course we told you as much a few weeks ago. Nokia has now confirmed pricing and availability for its first Windows 8.1 RT tablet in the US on AT&T.

Many of us have been enjoying Microsoft’s latest tablets – the Surface RT and Surface Pro, but today’s announcement that the tablet has just launched in Taiwan reminds us that the product isn’t exactly global. Just earlier this year, the Surface RT became available in 13 additional including Austria, Belgium, Denmark, Finland, Ireland, Italy, Luxembourg, the Netherlands, Norway, Portugal, Spain, Sweden and Switzerland

There has been some confusion regarding the availability of Nokia’s Glance feature, aka the on-screen clock which we covered recently in a tutorial post. The feature is coming to other Lumia devices via the Amber update, but we remember seeing rumors for “exceptions” on specific devices pop up, revolving around screen technology i.e. AMOLED vs LCD.

Nokia has gone now and confirmed that the Glance is basically coming to all Windows Phone 8 Lumias except the Lumia 520 and Lumia 521 (T-Mobile, US) due to “hardware restrictions”. While that would have been an awesome feature on the 52x series, evidently cutting hardware specs so low does have some consequences for feature parity.

Last week we reported that unconfirmed rumors on Reddit had hinted that Microsoft might be expanding it's Bing Audio music matching service. Today, the company announced that it would in fact be expanding the service into 14 new countries around the world. The music matching service is a great alternative to applications like Shazam, as it comes pre-bundled into the Windows Phone operating system.

Clove has announced on the company blog that the Lumia 620 is now available from its online store. The Windows Phone is a low-end solution that's targeted to those who wish to enjoy the Windows Phone 8 experience, but without the hefty price tag and advanced hardware. At just £226 (including VAT), we're looking at a low cost smartphone running the latest software.

UK retailer Clove has announced on their blog that the Lumia 920 will be available once again on the company's website. The Windows Phone has been absent since late last year due to either high demand or lack of production on Nokia's part. We've been keeping close tabs on availability in a number of markets since the handset was announced back in September.

Although we’re still getting settled in with our Surface RT Tablet, Microsoft has finally dropped info on its pricier and more powerful big brother, the Surface Pro.

The 64GB version will go for $899 and you can double that with 128GB for a hundred more at $999. The Surface Pro for those unfamiliar runs the full version of Windows 8, meaning it can run Windows 7 desktop apps in addition to the new RT ones. It also has some more advanced hardware including the next-gen i5 processor, 10.6” 1920x1080 HD resolution, a USB 3.0 port and a mini-display port.

The Lumia 920 is now appearing in Telstra stores, according to a number of consumers who have attempted to pick one up. Unfortunately, like its online store, Telstra brick and mortars are struggling to meet demand with the limited stock passed along by Nokia. While a familiar story across the board in multiple markets, it does make one consider why it hasn't been resolved yet.

It hasn't been the best of starts for the new UK carrier since it launched the first 4G network in the country. EE holds exclusivity on the Lumia 920, with available handsets at Phones4u locked to the network, forcing consumers with different providers to look online at unlocked prices - which went anywhere up to £550. So why has there been so much outrage at EE and the Lumia 920 launch?

While it’s not currently possible to check pricing and details of the Lumia 920 on website for both T-Mobile and Orange, it seems Phones 4u may have shed some light on things.

The Nokia Lumia 920, the flagship Windows Phone 8 device is an EE exclusive but will still be available to customers on Orange and T-Mobile. Of course, on standard 3g data plans rather than the brand new 4g plans EE want to push.
