The Nokia Lumia 928 is now official thanks to a two-page ad on Vanity Fair. It appears on the June 2013 issue of the magazine. Engadget was the first to spot the ad. I tried looking for a copy at my local Barnes and Noble, but they only had the May issue. Fortunately, we found a digital copy.
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.
T-mobile’s exclusive Nokia Lumia 521 went on sale at Walmart’s online store this weekend, but it quickly became unavailable. The price was $129.99 without requiring a 2-year contract. It wasn’t supposed to go on sale until the 11th, so maybe someone at Walmart accidentally pressed a button early and quickly fixed their mistake. Or maybe they decided to sell some devices early to check interest.
Nokia hosted a small, private concert last night with artist Ed Sheeran (headliner for Taylor Swift) in New York City. I expected a launch for the rumored Nokia Lumia 928, but Nokians told me when I got there that we wouldn’t see anything new. I later found out they weren’t telling the whole truth.
Windows Phone just published an awesome video you have to watch. iPhone users and Samsung users go at it during a wedding. Don’t fight. Switch to Lumia.
