Pre-order: Surface Laptop | NEW Surface Pro

reservations

Earlier today Rogers Canada officially announced their Windows Phone lineup that included the Nokia Lumia 920, HTC 8X and Samsung ATIV S. While no pricing for these devices wasn't released, the Lumia 920 and HTC 8X have appeared on Rogers' Reservation site.

The reservation system is only for existing Rogers customers and is a way to hold one of the new Windows Phones once they become available. Which is listed as "in the coming weeks".

The Lumia 920 is available in black and the 8X is available in both 8GB and 16GB versions. Which gives a little more credibility to the rumor AT&T will offer the 8X with two storage options.

Looks like if you live near a Microsoft Store or even a pop-up holiday kiosk you can stop by and get a reservation card good for one Surface RT come October 26th.

The info comes via our forums where member jdevenberg was given a pass from a Microsoft pop-up Store employee at Washington Square in Beaverton, Oregon. The pass simply reads that a Surface has been reserved and all the shopper has to do is bring the pass at 12pm on October 26th. This sounds like a good deal for those of you who are wanting to go and get one in the Store that very day instead of pre-ordering online.

Book your rooms with Meeting Rooms

Here's an interesting app for your Windows Phone. Meeting Rooms is a utility that allows you to check the status of your company's meeting rooms and reserve them from your Windows Phone.

Setting up the app is a little on the hit/miss side but it appears that you'll need to configure the app to your company's server.  Then you add the meeting rooms that are available for scheduling. From there it is a simple process of finding the date and time of your meeting and seeing what rooms are available.

It's a shame this app isn't compatible with the dry-erase board that I use to reserve conference rooms. But, if you have a meeting reservation system on your company's server, Meeting Rooms might give you an advantage in locking down that conference room.

Meeting Rooms is a free application that you can find here (opens Zune) over at the Marketplace.
