News in Brief

So part of my routine is to spend a few minutes getting an idea of the general tech news each day and I’m thinking, why not expand that into a quick list right here on my blog. I’ll keep the last 7 entries or thereabout on here. We’ll see if i can keep this up, so this is just a start. So here goes…

  • The Verge: HTC Accord leaks (This was the mid tier one based on earlier leaks – as listed here on WPCentral, with Zenith as the flagship). I’m pretty sure that Windows Phone 7 home screen will be replaced by Windows 8 when it is officially announced.

  • Way too much IFA stuff to go in to and link to all of it. Check the Verge, Engadget, Slashgear or any of the major tech sites and you should see a whole bunch of new devices from the likes of
    • Sony (Tablet S, Tablet T, Xperia V, Xperia T, Xperia )
    • Samsung (Galaxy Note II, Galaxy Camera, Ativ S, Ativ Tab,

  • There is a teaser video for September 5th has been released showing a girl riding a bike. The caption says “Things are about to change on 5 September 2012. Stay tuned!”  The wisdom across the blogosphere seems to think the only conclusion can be that it was shot using a Windows Phone with PureView technology included. You can watch the video and see for yourself on YouTube.

  • (All About Windows Phone) Chevron unlocked devices will re-lock when connected to Zune. Chevron unlock’s have expired so will relock when you next connect them to Zune. This is a big deal and means that if you want to unlock your device again you will need a App hub account or (unofficially, and this will likely void your warranty) be running a custom ROM. MSDN subscribes however, will see Windows Phone Developer accounts as part of their MSDN package – perhaps a move to make sure the free unlock codes go to more developers than people who just want to install registry hacks on their phone. I meant to post a bigger article on this and still might, but this was reported everywhere and, the All About Windows Phone article one is a good one to read to get the details.
  • (Nokia Developer) Extending the Windows Phone Pictures Hub – Nice How-to article, and the author just won a Lumia for it apparently.
