Nokia Lumia 710 and 800C receive tethering update

Nokia Lumia 710 and 800C receive tethering update

As much as we like both Nokia and Windows Phone, not to mention the delicious pairing of the two, one feature that has been missing from phones like the Lumia 710 and 800 is the ability to tether your 3G connection. Nokia has promised in the past that it will be bringing the feature in an update, and that certainly seems to be the case with the Refresh/Tango update rolling out to certain countries right now.

No Windows Phone 8 upgrade for current handsets tip insiders

None of the currently available Windows Phone devices - including Nokia's new Lumia 900 flagship - will get an upgrade to Windows Phone 8 "Apollo" insiders have warned, the next tough-to-swallow hurdle for Microsoft's platform.

Nokia Lumia 900 review

Nokia Lumia 900 review

Over the last year Nokia's had something of a tumultuous time in the mobile industry. While still a power to be feared in the featurephone market, their lack of presence in the smartphone market has been keenly felt. With T-Mobile's Lumia 710 as a prelude, the Finnish giant makes a return in earnest with the Lumia 900 on AT&T's LTE network. Its features and design are immediately attractive, but perhaps more so is the price: just $99 on-contract, or free for new AT&T customers. Can a combination of great design, high-end features and price make a bold statement for Nokia? Let's find out.

Windows Phone 7.5 Refresh tipped to Tango

The next version of Microsoft's mobile operating system has this week been tipped as Windows Phone 7.5 Refresh. This is in contrast to what we've heard in the past with rumors floating through cyberspace of the code-name being Windows Phone Tango, but does not knock down the idea that Windows Phone Apollo (the update after this) will be Windows Phone version 8.0. This new naming scheme comes from Windows Phone Italy who had the chance to sit down and have a chat with Microsoft's Stefania Duico, who coined the name.

Windows 8 logo shows Microsoft’s back to basics

Windows 8 logo shows Microsoft’s back to basics

Refined, minimalistic or just plain bland: Microsoft's new logo for Windows is prompting far more reaction than you might expect from four skewed squares. Revealed yesterday after a spate of low-profile leaks, the logo is - according to Microsoft's Windows team itself - as much an homage to the earliest, pared-down graphics of Windows 1.0 as it is a nod to the Metro UI that has become the theme of Windows Phone, Xbox LIVE and, soon, Windows 8 itself. Complaints about the new logo have generally centered on its insipid lack of distinctiveness, but according to the designers themselves this is merely the first step of many incoming changes.
