The Windows Mobile Thread

Re: The Windows Phone Thread

Nothing like that. Class 6 gives you enough bandwidth for HD recordings. If you have the money go for a class 10 as thats a bit futureproof should you upgrade to a phone that can do heavier recordings (bitratewise)

I ordered a 32GB Class 10 micro DS card fro SanDISK. How will it work with 1320?
 
Re: The Windows Phone Thread

It will be almost 3 months, since Nokia released Lumia 1520, in indian market. But its price remains the same. This is annoying. When Lumia 920 was launched last year. Within weeks its price went down.

When will we see the price decline? In india 1520 is already overpriced (45,000 INR = 722US$). While in international market its around 540US$.

During the comic con event, I was getting this reminder on my home screen . Something like "comic con from --- to ---- 7pm etc etc"
How do these notifications work? IS there a setting regarding this?

These must be Event requests sent by Facebook users. In calendar setting you can disable facebook events.

I am developing a simple snake game. Nothing fancy - metro like clean lines. Might even try to offer it on the marketplace if I get enough time to devote to it. :)

Best of luck for that Pranav :)
We THFian would be more than happy to play your game. I'll also try to develop some application sometime (maybe next year). This year I want to learn photography, buy a DSLR and click amazing pic like you :)

Re: The Windows Phone Thread

Why >820? MS has already told that this update will be available for all devices running WP8

Its higly likely that a few features wont trickle down to 512MB devices like the 520. I am betting on the multitasking changes to be unavailable.
