A round-up of what's new in the App Store, Google Play, BlackBerry World and Windows Phone Store

why don't you put all the pictures on one page instead of making users load 10 different pages of useless msn spam and junk to see a single picture that doesn't even occupy a tenth of the page? 90% of the information on this page is spam crap.
i got to picture three then decided to just go to google images to see it.
it's ironic msn and hotmail are constantly telling users how much they are doing to protect you from junk mail and spam, yet their pages are the biggest spamfests of all.
love nokia, hate msn.
Someone (Something Fun) should have simply clicked the "BROWSE THUMBNAILS" button to view all the images on one page - and there's hardly any spam in most people's hotmail accounts any more - it all depends which dodgy websites you are signing up to!
Geoffrey, Zune is not new - it is another Microsoft brand that includes many more features than Windows Media Player - although I have to agree with you that it is a pity that WMP is no longer supported by the new Windows Phone.
I am also surprised to hear you say that Bluetooth is not compatible with most other Nokia phones - the Nokia phones that I have owned preveiously that featured Bluetooth were some of the easiest to configure and use, so perhaps you are not doing something correctly to get the device to do what you want it to?
Jon why whould Nokia and Microsoft bring out an ANDROID phone? That makes no sense as we all know that Google and Microsoft are arch rivals. The android phones are really great, but the ones I have tried lack any build quality and the operating system is not as versatile as Windows Mobile. I currently have an Orange Barcelona Android (Frogo) phone - its a fantastic device featuring the keyboard of a blackberry with the flexibility of a touch-screen too, as well as all the great apps from Android Market, but it is no comparison to the Windows Mobile.
At least Microsoft are heading in the right direction - Windows Live Messenger and Hotmail are now both available as apps on the Android Market (free of charge.) I don't see Gmail or G-Talk being available properly yet on Windows Mobile phones?
I look forward to upgrading to a Windows Mobile again soon. They are just great with the way they integrate with Windows Live, Live Mesh, and of course the Sky Drive Cloud and Calendar.
Just got this nokia lumia 800
Now not want to be buzz kill but it's a bit glitchy like ghost in the phone when I started enter text the keyboard kept entering the r continually without being touched. So as you do reset the phone switching off and as I switch back on it went ghost in the phone again. High tailed it back to the text input and repeated the same thing again frustrating big time.
Another funny thing is locking your phone sometimes the phones refuses to be unlocked freaky. You flick it up it flicks back down or doesn't recognise the the numbers being input.
When it does work it is smooth my mate tried watching some you tube, he has the htc desire looks cool but no chance to the fast download of the Nokia Lumia I had it in the bag oh were both on the same network.
Best app is the nokia music there is no need for any other app for music it is the business.
Mix Radio sweet no more spotify
the sound quality has improved well I was on a N78 for past three years so this is miles better quality.
The What's New feat is well integrated to windows live, twitter, face book all in one place so no need opening so many apps to keep in touch
marketplace isn't all bad but need more content
Overall it a top gadget for me so if yours plays up switch off charge it give time cool down a bit
and your back on the smooth side again
This phone is not compatible with Windows Media Player, instead you need to download a new package to your pc called 'zune'.
Bluetooth, is not compatible with most phones, including other Nokia, therefore unable to retrieve photos etc, from previous phone.
The keyboard takes some getting use to, especially if you do not have skinny fingers
But now, Nokia smartphones seem to be worse than the chinese clones of popular phones.
I recently bought a Nokia E7, then 2months later a Nokia C2-03 before buying a Motorola Ex119. Both Nokias are absolute ****e and both are still pretty brand new.
Now Nokia has released this Lumia thing that doesnt have a music player nor micro-SD expansion port nor Cirik software like the iPhone 4s has - what is Nokia playing at???
I'm sorry to say this but Nokia is going down. I cant see them staying in the mobile phone market much longer. The problem for me is that i love Nokia - all my phones were Nokia until last year.
