Nokia won’t have Windows Phone OS on handsets until at least October

One of the biggest surprises to be unveiled so far this year was the announcement by Nokia CEO Stephen Elop that Nokia would be moving from Symbian to the Windows Phone OS.

Is Microsoft’s Zune on the way out?

Is Microsoft’s Zune on the way out?

With all the talk about Windows Phone 7 recently, many people are starting to wonder why Zune hasn't been mentioned at all. It seems logical that Zune software would be a part of a Windows phone, since Joe Belfiore, the Corporate Vice President of the Windows Phone Program Management said in 2010's keynote at Mobile World Congress “Every Windows Phone will be a Zune”. But now, nobody is talking about Zune. Is Microsoft getting ready to kill it off? Or are they just going to re-brand it?

When Microsoft officially unveiled Windows Phone 7, and unveiled that the device would sync with Zune Software, there were a lot of Mac owners out there trying to figure out how, exactly, they'd be able to utilize a Windows Phone 7 device, considering that Zune Software doesn't work for Apple-branded computers.

Windows Phone 7 Connector for Mac Updated, Brings Plenty of New Features

Microsoft officially began pushing it out earlier today.

Windows Phone 7 Gets Silverlight Enhanced Movie Apps from Paramount Digital Entertainment

So Paramount has decided to release some movies, each one of them individually, as apps on Windows Phone 7. How will this work? Each movie (starting, strangely enough, with the Jack Black movie "School of Rock") will release by itself as an "enhanced" movie app, each of these apps containing the full movie plus bonus features and "unique experiences not available on other platforms." Other movies coming up soon are Zoolander, Waiting for Superman, and GI Joe: The Rise of Cobra. Clearly they're trying to find the most random movies they could possibly think of to... cast a wide net?

Windows Phone 7 Marketplace Glitch Allows XAP Package Download: Viewable Application Source Code For All

Windows Phone 7 Marketplace Glitch Allows XAP Package Download: Viewable Application Source Code For All

At this very moment, it is possible for any Joe Schmo to go over to Microsoft's server and download all of Windows Phone 7 XAP application packages without the need of a WP7 device or Zune Desktop software. This is possible because Zune software uses ATOM XML feed to grab application info, so it's just a matter of diving into the code to find the XAP package address and download it directly. Once you've got the XAP package of an application, you can simply unzip it and have your way with all of that app's assets and resources - including the source code of the app with the use of Reflector (a debugger for lots of nasty projects.)

Microsoft KIN gets second chance on Verizon

Microsoft KIN gets second chance on Verizon

Microsoft's KIN was arguably scuppered by Verizon's insistence on pairing the starter-smartphone with a mandatory full-price data plan; customers weren't convinced, and the KIN ONE and KIN TWO were pulled from shelves in July. Now, it seems, Verizon is giving the KIN a second chance; according to a device overview from the carrier leaked to PPCGeeks, both handsets will return sometime this quarter.
