After months and months of constant bickering by Windows Phone users, and the use of a magnitude of different unofficial Instagram clients such as Instance and Hipstamatic’s Oggl, Instagram has started striking back at users who make use of unofficial Instagram clients by deleting such users’ uploads.
The move, albeit to combat spam uploads, has resulted in an outcry by Windows Phone users who have been crying for several months, begging the company to release a Windows Phone application. Nokia has even had a campaign in which they tried to bully Instagram into creating an official Instagram for Windows Phone application through #2InstaWithLove which failed miserably. Instagram has started deleted uploads by users that use unofficial Instagram clients, of which several are Windows Phone applications such as the popular Instance. Instagram officially noted that the deletions were caused by a change in their APIs that have been made to combat spam uploads on the service, all unofficial offerings seems to have been affected.
Instance’s creator, Daniel Gary, has taken to Twitter to calm disgruntled users down and promising a fix soon with the possibility of refunds being offered to users who purchased the application for their devices. Best to get an iPhone or Android device then, hey?
It has been well over two years since Nokia adopted Microsoft’s new (at the time) Windows Phone operating system to replace their ageing Symbian, later renamed Belle, operating system. After two years of uphill battles, Nokia is finally starting to show some rewards albeit minor ones, but sadly Microsoft doesn’t seem to share the same enthusiasm over their mobile offering as Nokia does.
Nokia has been quiet after officially launching the Nokia Lumia 1020 a few weeks ago, but it seems that tomorrow they’re ready to make a noise again when they launch “something BIG” at 9am UK time, but don’t get your hopes up for a tablet or even phablet from the Finns.
Sprint today launched two new exclusive Windows Phone 8 device sporting the carrier’s LTE bands and taking advantage of Windows Phone’s growing popularity in the US. The HTC 8XT and Samsung ATIV S Neo are set to go on sale later this summer.
The internet has been abuzz about Nokia’s next flagship smart phone which will supposedly carry the same camera last seen on its revolutionary Nokia 808 PureView device last year. With the Symbian powered device set to be discontinued soon, the company will supposedly launch a new camera smart phone carrying the ‘EOS’ codename.
Huawei is preparing to make a big splash in the Windows Phone 8 pool as it prepared to flush Nokia with its teased water resistant Windows Phone 8 smart phone, presumably the Huawei Ascend W2.
The HTC Tiara may have been cancelled, or it may be coming to Sprint soon, but this supposed render has got to be the most terrible photoshop job in history. The device appears to be an HTC Windows Phone device featuring Windows Phone 8 and Beats Audio enhancements, but in actual fact it is the HTC One SV photoshopped to look like a Windows Phone device.
A recent FCC filing has given us a glimpse into an upcoming Windows Phone device from HTC headed for Sprint and it could be the previously rumoured HTC Tiara.
HTC One Google Edition, Galaxy S4 Mini, Windows 8.1 and new Apple iPod Touch announced, new Huawei W2 leaked
Today has been quite an eventful day in the technosphere. HTC has unveiled a new variant of the HTC One running stock Android, Samsung finally made the Samsung Galaxy S4 Mini official, Microsoft announced Windows 8.1, Apple launched the new Apple iPod Touch 16GB which lacks a rear camera and Huawei’s next Windows Phone 8 flagship, the Huawei Ascend W2 leaked.
Looks like Nokia’s decision to adopt Windows Phone may be starting to yield its rewards as the latest IDC statistics for the first quarter of 2013 has revealed Windows Phone ousting BlackBerry out of the Top 3 smart phone operating systems, taking the lead behind only Android and iOS.
