Elan Feingold, founder of Plex and developer of the official Windows Phone app, has shared his thoughts on the experience he's had with development on the platform thus far. Plex recently released the official app for Windows Phone, which enables the user to stream movies, music and photos to their device(s) on the go. Feingold is a longtime iPhone user who has never had any interest in Android, due to the mess of the system itself, fragmentation...

Nokia Drive (our review) version 2.0 has been released and is available for download on the Marketplace. The Windows Phone turn-by-turn navigation app from Nokia now sports offline navigation to further cut the use of data. With this functionality not dependant on your connectivity (or data allowance), you'll be able to drive with peace of mind. As well as the offline use, we've also got "Last Destinations" that can be selected for user convenien...

While Microsoft hasn't confirmed a release date for the next version of Windows, Bloomberg reported last night that Windows 8 will be finalized this summer, and sales of both Intel-based PCs and ARM devices will begin "around October." More than 40 Intel-based PCs (including some tablets, presumably) will be available in the initial Windows 8 rollout, compared to "fewer than five ARM devices," Bloomberg reported, citing anonymous sources. The lo...

Though they had a good run, it appears Microsoft's Zune and Windows Live brands are going the way of the Dodo. The Windows 8 Consumer Preview shows that the Windows Live group of applications have been replaced by a pre-installed "Windows Communications" group. "Windows Live ID," the current all-in-one login for Microsoft services, will be replaced with the generic "Microsoft Account." [Edit: It's actually called "Microsoft Your Account", see bel...

The Windows 8 Consumer Preview—notably it's not being called a "beta"—will be launched on February 29th. Microsoft will launch it at an event it's hosting in Barcelona to coincide with Mobile World Congress. Taking full advantage of the opportunity afforded by the leap year, the release will just hit Microsoft's previously announced "late February" date. Redmond has no comment (yet) on whether the event will be Webcast. Releasing the Consumer P...
