The Windows Mobile Thread

Re: The Windows (Mobile) Thread

One general doubt I have with Windows Tablets is whether I will be able to install and run older windows programs (ie, those not downloaded through the Windows Store). Also, same question for Windows phones...

Thanks in advance,
Arun

Anyone facing battery issue in lumia 525. My battery goes down from 100 to 0 in just 10hrs with little music and Web browsing and some whatsapp?
Should I get a new battery? I bought the phone at launch. Also I use tablet's charger to charge it. Is it harmful?

try using the original charger
some chargers(even powerbanks) reduce battery life(applies to all devices)

No, I want to know if we can install programs like LibreOffice through their setup.exe files. We can run these on Laptops running Windows 8.1, so I want to know if there are restrictions in place in Tablets and phones which may prevent running of exe files...

Arun

nah you cant do that on windows phones
its fully supported in windows tablets though(not RT based)
also office is free and very very well made on windows phone,beats any other app on android and ios too

Re: The Windows (Mobile) Thread

Thanks for the info... Office 365 Personal 1 yr subscription comes free with most tablets, which
a. has to be renewed each year and hence not strictly free, and
b. is not really supposed to be used for commercial purpose, as I understand...

Thanks again,
Arun

Received Windows 8.1 Update 2 on my Karbonn Titanium Wind W4. Settings have been grouped and it feels a lot better to search.
Well this phone was on Windows 8.1 only, it didnt even receive Windows 8.1 Update (had checked a week back). Every other Windows Phone, be it Lumia or non-lumia (Karbonn & XOLO) had received windows 8.1 update around 2 months back, but mine never received. I was almost sure that mine wont receive any further updates. But just today it received 8.1 Update 2 directly from Windows 8.1, skipping WIndows 8.1 Update and WIndows 8.1 Update 1 :shock:
Great job by Karbonn. Really satisfied. Couldn't ask anything more from a 3k phone ;)
