It was like a mini Microsoft World kinda thing with little booths for different Microsoft things. The dell one was so nice. […]

The design was said to be akin to the 830 + another LED flash. Supposedly as well, a Lumia 830 successor was cancelled as part […]

Based on rumours and leaks, here’s a quick video of the upcoming Lumia 940 by PhoneDesigner. Earlier on in the week, @evleaks asked/hinted as to whether there has been a WP with a front facing flash (what with selfies being the in thing right now). It might help with the iris scanning too perhaps? (Though […]

A couple of key posts on yesterday’s news.

Despite Warren’s headline questioning whether WindowsPhone has been abandoned by Microsoft, he does agree Microsoft will continue investing in […]

Check out this vision of loveliness. It’s an evolution from the 930 and 830 design where there is as little of the bezel and more of the glass on the face. The slight curves originating from the N9/800 are ever present and make it look a lot more stylish. The back features that new for […]

Jason tweeted us that the Terminator Genysis movie had a lot of Nokia Lumia presence. WMPU has at least one screenshot showing the Nokia Lumia 1520. As Cortana gets smarter by the day, it might not be too long until she is fully self aware. SkyDrive, Skype, SkyNet. MS actually has something called SkyNet UI […]

For larger screen displays, it may be helpful to have ‘usability features’ for when you’re using one hand. There’s some form of it on my Note 4 where windows get shrunken to fit the left or right hand side. W10 takes cues from Apple and brings the screen down though as you can see in […]

Here’s a Microsoft promo for Lumia, positioned as the right choice for business. It focuses only on Lumia, no mention of the competition. Though no mention of anything either as it’s just music and text. Viewers on YouTube seem to like this approach. There’s a whole bunch of things in Lumia that means it’s built […]

Lisa Gade checks out the mid-range Lumia 640 XL on AT&T (99 cents on contract or $250 without). As usual, the experience across all Windows Phones is pretty consistent. Gaming on a mid-range CPU dealt with a demanding Modern Combat 5 – playable with a touch of lag. The big screen is great for gaming […]

Which do you prefer name wise? Windows Camera or Lumia Camera?

Which do you prefer name wise? Windows Camera or Lumia Camera?

| June 29, 2015 | 6 Replies

Nokia Camera became Lumia Camera under Microsoft. Now there’s Windows Camera. Is that replacing Lumia Camera or Microsoft Camera? Also…is this simply so all Windows Devices can use that camera app (i.e. Surface) or for other brands? What does this mean for Lumia? I think possibly just having one unified interface would be best. We […]
