The Philippine Department of Tourism (DOT) and Globe Telecom are running a contest that could get you a Nokia Lumia 610 and a trip to the beautiful beaches of Boracay. I just spent a couple of weeks there and absolutely loved it. To join, just make a video inviting people in a fun way to visit the Philippines.
Super Camera lets you create a photo collage on your Windows Phone. You can combine several photos and then share to Facebook, Twitter, Sina Weibo, and Tencent Weibo. This app was shown off to me by a Windows Phone user in the Philippines. I liked it too, so I had to install it on my Nokia Lumia 800. Here’s a demo on video
The Nokia Lumia 610 is now available at Nokia stores in the Philippines. It’s the most affordable Lumia device that Nokia is offering and Philippines is the first country to get it. I visited a store today in Manila to see how they’re selling it.
Ever wondered how a Nokia Lumia 900 tastes like? Nokia US just posted some photos of a cake in the shape of a Nokia Lumia 900 and its packaging. Take a look.
Finally, Skype for Windows Phone is available in the Marketplace. It helps you connect with friends and family instantly with free voice and video calls everywhere you go. The beta was available in February, but we’re happy to report the release of the final version with some new features.
Last night, I attended the Nokia Lumia 710 launch from Smart in Manila Philippines. The device will be exclusive to the carrier’s postpaid subscribers. There were formal announcements in the beginning and one huge party afterwards with DJ Erick Morillo.
Last night, I attended the Nokia Lumia 800 launch party in Manila. The device is exclusive to the carrier, Globe Telecom. Thirty Nokia Lumia 610′s and five Nokia Lumia 800′s were raffled off. I made a quick recap video. Check it out!
Typing this now from the airport as I head over to Manila to attend the Lumia launch parties in Manila, Philippines. Globe will be launching the Nokia Lumia 800 tonight, while Smart will be launching the Nokia Lumia 710 tomorrow night. Event flyers after the break.
