The Nokia Lumia 928 isn’t announced yet, but there are a couple of photos on Flickr already uploaded from the device. These photos have been available for the public to see since early February, but was just brought up now. Check them out.
SNUpload is my new favorite app for Windows Phone. It lets you upload photos to multiple Twitter, Facebook (including pages), Dropbox, and Flickr accounts, with more to come in updates. If you like, you can also edit the photos before uploading. Demo on the Nokia Lumia 920 after jump.
We’re not sure if this is a Nokia Lumia 620 exclusive option, but deva_p found it on his newly-purchased phone. It lets you manually delete temporary files to free up space. Check out a couple of screenshots after the jump.
Nokia’s recent filing with U.S. Securities and Exchange Commission revealed their CEO Stephen Elop took a 45 percent cut in his pay package last year. Elop earned 4.33 million euros ($5.63 million USD) in 2012, down from 7.94 million euros a year earlier.
Price drop alert! The Nokia Lumia 920 in all colors is now $19.99 at Amazon. That’s much lower than the $99 pricetag at AT&T’s website and stores. You’ll still need to sign a 2-year contract, but I believe this is the lowest it has ever been. Take advantage of this deal before Amazon changes their mind.
One app that many Windows Phone users have been asking for is Instagram. Nokia released an app today called #2InstaWithLove as a way for us to have our voices heard. The app adds a filter to your photo and adds the hashtag when you share to your social network. Hopefully, the people in charge at Instagram see enough demand from the Windows Phone community.
