Extras+Info for Windows Phone was just updated to give direct access to Glance and Touch under settings. This previously required a few more clicks and swipes to find.

So you’ve probably heard that Microsoft is buying Nokia’s devices and services. The words Asha and Lumia are going to Microsoft. The brand “Nokia” is still owned by Nokia, but they’re not allowed to use that name on any mobile devices until the end of 2015.

The Nokia Lumia 925 is now confirmed for AT&T in the US. It will be available in black for $99 with a two-year contract. If you upgrade using the AT&T next program, it’s available for $21 a month.
Nokia is rumored to launch a 10.1-inch Windows RT tablet next month. The price is rumored to be $499 which I think is a little expensive. Nothing is official yet, so I guess we’ll just have to wait for the announcements. Watch the video to find out what we know so far.
Nokia Photo Transfer lets you connect your Nokia Lumia Windows Phone 8 device with your Mac OS computer, and transfer photos and videos between the two.

Here’s a quick look at the Nokia Lumia 625 recorded from Nokia House in Finland. This Lumia has the largest display at 4.7 inches compared to other Nokia Lumia devices. One thing to keep in mind however is the screen resolution is 800 x 480. It won’t be as sharp as the displays found on the Lumia 920 and 1020.
