With the addition of this one, but essential client, the app-gap has become even smaller. However, to have this one, you must be running Windows Phone 8.

without comments

satya-nadella-560Of all the difficulties that Microsoft is facing with Windows Mobile, the app deficiency is the most alarming one and the most challenging to overcome.

A recent rumor that first surfaced on The Verge said that Sources familiar with Microsoft’s suggest that the company is seriously considering allowing Android apps to run on both Windows and Windows Phone. While some analysts report that this might mean that Windows Phone can run almost all apps, it could also mean that Microsoft would near the death of Windows Phone.

Have we heard about something similar in the past?! Yes, Blackberry back in the day had decided to boost their BlackBerry 10 platform by enabling support of Android apps but it did not really turn any heads towards the company.

without comments

BeG-LEfCAAI58o7.png-largeThere is almost no day that passes by without a new leak of this Nokia Normandy smartphone which is making headlines for one sole reason because it is expected to be – Nokia’s first Android smartphone.

Very strong rumours say that the UI above is a forked version of Android like the one on the Amazon Kindle Fire line of tablets but that doesn’t convince us enough. Everything else looks the Asha OS just got a facelift. There are a lot of apps out there from Skype to Vine and even BBM and Viber that makes us think again, what really is the Normandy!?

It is expected to launch on February 25th so keep your fingers crossed Android fanboys.

A Sony Windows Phone This Year!?

without comments

sony-sign-wdAt this point Microsoft has a lot of questions yet unanswered that would decide the Windows Phone fate. We do know that Nokia – Microsoft now being one could mean that there is one big question- Will Microsoft encourage other OEMs to use their OS tp compete against their own manufacturing?

A Source says that Microsoft is in talk with Sony to push WP on their hardware . While at this point it might mean starting from scratch, Microsoft wants this to happen and would like to take the pain to get this sorted as soon as possible.

New Lumia 630 Would Bring Dual-SIM to Windows Phone!?

without comments

630-shotevleaks on a spree of leaking new Windows Phone tips and now we have a rumour with a photo to back it up. The Lumia 630/635 codenamed “Moneypenny” would bring Dual-SIM support to Windows Phone alongwith alleged On-Screen buttons.

Based on the network indicators, we think both SIMs could be active simultaneously. Nokia has its eyes set on developing markets, and giving those users this sort of flexibility may be key to winning many over.
