Some interesting WP Tango/WP7.5 Refresh related news:
1) WiFi sharing – yes we’ve heard this before. But the Lumias that didn’t come with this (for what ever reason) will finally get it like all the other WP7.5 devices in the update
2) Battery improvement – not that interesting but good to see them continually optimise this. My battery life is quite decent but some report not being as happy with theirs. I think at least 1 day normal use is quite good (Max 4d standby minimal).
3) Now this is new. Marketplace is being renamed Nokia Marketplace, with Nokia’s Store logo. This is interesting because if you remember, we saw this already. Possibly a mistake or Tango on show already? Note the Nokia Store logo. Possibly just an error as we noted several in the video, though Nokia MP would make sense given this info.
4) The best till last, if this is true. Apparently Nokia will release an app that will allow bluetooth file transfer for Lumia phones. This is one of the main list of gripes listed by Nokia users used to a plethora of features. We can’t be sure of this but it would be great if it comes true. Nokia already has bluetooth contacts transfer as an app, unlike the other WPs – something that was invaluable when switching over from a new device (though once everything is synced with Live, losing contacts is no longer an issue).
For transfer of content, I use either Zune, or WP connector for mac or the wireless Sync with zune (which happens automatically whenever I’m charging the Lumia). This may come in handy in future (though not with my laptop as it has some faulty Acer BT module that has never worked for file transfer).
Cheers Dave for the tip!
