The Nokia Lumia 900 went on sale in Singapore last weekend. Coincidently, Nokia sent media personality, Paul Foster, to various malls around the island and challenged people to see which phone is faster everyday stuff they do on their smartphones. The Nokia Lumia 900 smoked 51 phones and lost once.
I stumbled upon a Nokia Lumia 800 running the new Windows Phone Tango firmware here in Bangkok. The changes are subtle, but the major addition is Internet Sharing. The Nokia Lumia 800 devices currently being sold in Thailand unfortunately do not have this update yet. I’ve been waiting for this feature for so long!
Finally, Skype for Windows Phone is available in the Marketplace. It helps you connect with friends and family instantly with free voice and video calls everywhere you go. The beta was available in February, but we’re happy to report the release of the final version with some new features.
The cyan Nokia Lumia 800 I recently unboxed was my 6th Windows Phone device. How did I know? I was unable to download any apps from the Marketplace because of this error. It looks like we are only allowed to associate our Windows Live ID with 5 phones. If you don’t manually remove your previous phones from your account settings, you won’t be able to download new apps on your 6th phone.
Do you love to take panorama photos? Check out Pano on your Nokia Lumia phone. It’s an award-winning app that was ported from iOS that lets you take seamless panoramic photos straight from your phone. You can take up to sixteen photos, but I like to limit it to 3 or 4. Here’s my video to showing you how it works.
The Nokia Lumia 710 just launched at T-mobile, but there’s another Windows Phone device the carrier is offering that may sway customers away. It’s the HTC Radar. The Nokia Lumia 710 costs less than the Radar, but it appears that HTC’s device offers more features. Here’s my video comparison. Take a look.
You’ve probably seen Nokia Maps before, but have you seen it on a Nokia Lumia 900? It was hard to actually play with a Nokia Lumia 900 at CES but I found a table at their booth that showed more than just the homescreen and the application list. Nokia’s location and commerce team were demonstrating mapping applications on the Nokia Lumia 900. This video shows off Nokia Maps.
SurfCube is a web browser for Windows Phone available at the Marketplace. You can choose to use it on the Nokia Lumia 800 instead of Internet Explorer. It has an interesting 3D interface. Swipe from edges to open tabs, settings, or the address bar. If you don’t like the swipe gestures, you can enable the bottom menu to navigate through the app.
