For me, I first saw one of these at one of the Nokia Worlds. It was nice to see at the posher mall here called Greenbelt. Advertisements I think this might have been there the last time I visited.. 2010…?

With the Windows 10 technical preview for phone finally available, here’s a very long look at what’s new in it
Windows 10 Preview for Phones Begins Rolling out; Here’s How to Upgrade (Lumia 630, 730 and 830 only)
A couple hours ago Microsoft flipped the switch on the Insider preview program for Windows Phone, releasing Windows 10 to enthusiasts. However the first wave of updates is only available for a select few number of devices, the LUmia 630 and it’s variants, the Lumia 730 and the Lumia 830. Here’s how to upgrade your […]

WHAT’S NEW * Lock your phone with a PIN or Pattern! * Next Lock Screen is now available in three languages: English, Spanish and Chinese (Mandarin). * The home button press is now disabled, preventing accidental Once you set a pattern you can […]
Although Nokia had tweeted that all WP8 devices would get Windows 10, there were some concerns when an official LumConv post claimed that they were aiming for most devices, indicating that some might not get it. Recently, there were news that Microsoft were pushing to get W10 on lower end devices. Today, there’s some reports that a […]
Dear MNB Readers, Microsoft is feeling generous today as they are giving away 100 Gigabytes of OneDrive storage for up to 2 years for FREE. What’s the catch? Well….you have to sign up for Bing Rewards or be an existing Bing Rewards user and Bing Rewards is only available in the United States at the moment. […]
A developer has shared a link to their Instagram and Vine app for Symbian. Yes, Symbian. I thought it cannot post pics to instagram, ruling or possibly your need for this app. But it claims it can. Oddly, other than WP, third party instagram apps on android or iOS can’t post to instagram. Just manage […]
As much as I joke about the love of demoing tile resizing, especially when there are new tile sizes, more clean consistent options are always welcome. I reckon these look pretty great. A long vertical one and a fatter square. These images supposedly coming from a Lumia 1330, with a somewhat strange noted […]
Steve Litchfield compared the Lumia Camera 5 capabilities to extract 8mp images from 4k video. In comparison to what is sort of the gold standard, oversampling, he says it does a terrific job. Oversampling at 5MP is noticeably better but it was surprisingly doing a ‘good enough job’ . The amount of work needed to […]
These images were sent on twitter by a user that seems to have got the update early. As you can see, we have the cleaner more organised settings as well as more options in the notification area aka action centre. https://mobile.twitter.com/s1z33/status/563266700007591936 Cheers Alvester for the tip!
Of all the stores I expected to come across at a mall, this wasn’t one of them. Two staff were there…peeking through the box hole in the door at the back. It looks completely empty which seems sad but given that the mall was an hour from closing, that’s ok. e.g. Even Samsung store was […]
I love seeing how people personalise Lumia tiles (especially given the initial limitations of them). The promo talks about the cool parallax effect – is that still present with WP10 and background. Here’s one of the apps to achieve this effect. Cheers Alvester for the tip!
In the video below, Xioami, renowned iThing copier, dares to poke fun at the iPhone 6 and the camera bump. That indirectly pokes fun at other lumpy rears, including famously of course, Nokia’s spectacular cameras. How does their camera even compare. When slim yet producing as good pictures or better than opponent, that’s ok. If you […]
