Nokia Lumia 520 continues dominating Windows Phone universe

It would appear that the first appearance of the Nokia Lumia 520 as the most common smartphone in use across the world earlier this year was not just a fluke. Not by any stretch of the imagination. Instead we're seeing this device continue to grow in popularity, quite likely because of its relative low cost and common smartphone abilities - not to mention the fact that it comes in a variety of fabulous colors.

Sygic offline navigation app adds Groupon, Foursquare, ParkMe

Sygic: GPS Navigation, the offline nav-and-map app for iOS and Android, has added some new third-party integrations for discovering nearby deals and parking options. Already glutted with online and offline additions over the course of the company's decade-long history, the freemium Sygic app competes with Nokia HERE Drive, the offline nav-and-map app for Lumia devices. A ParkMe addition brings the older Sygic app back into parity with the Nokia app.

Nokia Lumia 2520 commercial misleads, plays on geek insecurities

Nokia Lumia 2520 commercial misleads, plays on geek insecurities

Nokia has released a somewhat misleading commercial having a go at a tablet that could be interpreted as an Apple iPad while touting its own, new Lumia 2520 tablet. The ad focuses on the competitor tablet's lack of a keyboard and allegedly shorter battery life. The problem with the ad is that it fails to mention that the attachable Nokia Power Keyboard that makes mechanical typing possible on the 2520 -- and extends the tablet's battery life by a claimed 50% -- doesn't come standard with the 2520.

Nokia Lumia 2520 review

Nokia Lumia 2520 review

The Nokia Lumia 2520 has been some time coming. The glaring absence of a tablet in the company's range, and its refusal to discuss it until it could figure out a suitably "Nokia spin" on the segment, left us with big expectations. Turns out, the Nokia magic is making LTE standard-fit and borrowing the Lumia phone style for a Windows RT slate, but is that enough to differentiate the Lumia 2520 from the iPad and Microsoft's Surface 2? Read on for the SlashGear review.

Instagram for Windows Phone lands today (but it’s half-baked)

Instagram for Windows Phone lands today (but it’s half-baked)

Instagram for Windows Phone arrives today, landing in the Windows Phone Store complete with Live Tile support. However, the much-anticipated app is lacking a few features compared to its iOS and Android cousins, most notably that video support isn't present at release. Whereas the existing apps for other platforms allow short video clips to be recorded and shared, Windows Phone users will need to wait for a future update to get that functionality.

Nokia Lumia tablet with 8-inch display in the works

There’s another Nokia tablet in the wings, readied for a release and reveal as early as Q1 of 2014, so says sources close to the matter speaking anonymously. This next-generation will follow along closely with the machine that’s being released this fall, that being the Nokia Lumia 2520. Just like what we got a hands-on experience with just this October, the 8-inch table will work with Windows RT - of course it will be pushed with Windows RT 8.1, but it’ll be RT all the same. That means an ever-so-slight bit of difference between full Windows 8 and a big difference for those hoping to roll with the full experience.
