Twitter application for Windows Phone, Rowi, was just updated to version 3.4. There are 2 new features that I’d like to mention. You can now receive tweets instantly inside of Rowi. No need to click a refresh button or pull-down to refresh. You can now also receive push notifications instantly. No more delays in getting notified of mentions, retweets, follows, or favorites.

This is the phone that a lot of us have been waiting for. It’s the Nokia Lumia 920 and this is my review after using it for 2 weeks. To summarize this review, I think the Nokia Lumia 920 is the best Windows Phone 8 device out right now. The exclusive apps from Nokia like Nokia Maps, Drive, and Music make the Lumia 920 a better buy than the Windows Phone 8 devices from HTC or Samsung. The price is also too good.
Here’s my review of the HTC 8X which is the first Windows Phone 8 device that I got to try out. The Windows Phone I used before this was the Nokia Lumia 900. Before we continue, I just want to warn you that this is running pre-production software. There might be changes or improvements when it hits the stores.
Which is the better Nokia Lumia Windows Phone for you: the Nokia Lumia 900 or the Nokia Lumia 800? Here’s a comparison on video.
I’ve always been a fan of Nokia’s cameraphones because it meant carrying one device instead of a point-and-shoot camera AND a phone. In regards to imaging, my favorites were the Nokia N93, N82, N86 8MP, and the N8. Nokia recently announced the 808 PureView which is going to be Nokia’s best imaging phone yet. I’ve played with the device at Mobile World Congress and was impressed especially with the technology behind it. There’s just one problem. It’s not a Windows Phone device.
I had a hard time getting a prepaid SIM card in Barcelona for Mobile World Congress, so I was glad Tripneter reached out before the trip to check out their 3G mobile hotspot service. With Tripneter, you can connect up to 5 devices to the hotspot. The young company also delivers the mobile hotspot to your hotel in Spain before you check in. Here’s my video review.
