The official Speedtest.net app is now available for Windows Phone! This application has been available for Android and the iPhone for such a long time already, so we’re glad to see it on Windows Phone too.
Nokia Maps is included with Nokia Lumia devices, but check out gMaps Pro if you want to use Google Maps on Windows Phone 8. It supports search, traffic, public transit, routes, street view, and more. There’s also navigation, but no voice support. Video after the jump.
Did you know you can use your Paypal account to pay for apps and games at the Windows Phone Store? I just learned that today. This is a new feature for Windows Phone 8 and is handy for those who can’t use the default carrier billing or don’t want to use a credit card. It takes less than a minute to set up.
Rowi, my favorite Twitter app for Windows Phone was just updated for Windows Phone 8. I show how it works on the Nokia Lumia 920. It’s fast, resumes to where you left off, and you can now tweet with your voice too. Unfortunately, this version does not take advantage of the new lockscreen options for Windows Phone 8. Video after the jump.
We have a new device to unbox today and that’s the Nokia Lumia 810! It’s now available in the US exclusively for T-mobile for $99 after a $50 mail-in-rebate and a 2-year contract. If you want it off-contract, it costs $549. Yup, it is more expensive than the Nokia Lumia 920 at AT&T.
