Cortana! Possibly the most exciting thing about WP 8.1, a personalized voice assistant that can finally rival the likes of Siri and Google Now. So here’s a quick first look (but before that a video showing how to get Cortana if you’re outside the US). http://youtu.be/4A8NPXY_Vd0 Once you start Cortana you’ll be prompted to enter […]

Cyanide and Happiness is a pretty awesome web comic, that never fails (well usually) to get a laugh out of me, from their obscene and sometimes offensive comics to their slightly more tame ones. They also have an official Android and iOS app, but naturally no such app exists for WP; until now. Daily Explosm […]
In the video below, you can see how to put iOS like toggles to your Nokia X. Install Easy Controller app and after you open it once you can swipe from the bottom to access quick toggles. All buttons work except the torch since there’s no LED flash (XL has a flash). The camera button […]
The Lumia 1320 might share the screen size as the Lumia 1520, but when it comes to the camera they couldn’t be more unlike; the Lumia 1520 has a Pureview 20 Mp camera with OIS, Oversampling and some sweet lenses, the Lumia 1320 on the other hand is your standard old 5 Mp shooter without […]
Dear MNB Readers! Nokia currently has a Windows tablet, the excellent Nokia Lumia 2520 that is powered by the Windows RT operating system (OS). Windows RT is a great OS considering Microsoft’s intentions. Windows RT looks great, runs smoothly and provides features in a tablet form factor that you cannot get with an iOS or Android tablet.

The folks over at UnleashThePhones have just released yet another video, this time showing off Cortana in action on WP 8.1. Cortana is accessed by a live tile shortcut in the demo (hopefully though long pressing one of the navigation buttons will suffice in the future). After that some questions are details are taken for […]
I got a couple requests to do a gaming test of the Lumia 1320; so here it is. Games in general ran pretty smoothly, and seeing how it’s not a 512 mb device all games were available to play; that is if you have enough available memory. http://youtu.be/rkDIUUBDi1Q For some reason Temple Run 2 […]
