Microsoft Lumia 640 XL Dual SIM Launches in Bahrain

I was very pleased to see that Intercol, Microsoft (or Nokia) mobiles dealer in Bahrain, have started selling the new Lumia 640 XL Dual SIM for BD86.

I’ve been a loyal Windows Phone user ever since Windows Phone 8.0 came out, starting off with a (then) Nokia Lumia 920 and only upgrading just a little over 6 months ago to a Lumia 930. If it weren’t for me busting the screen I think I would have still been on my 920 simply because the performance and experience is just great regardless of the age of the hardware.…

I have decided to start off the series with the things that I do not like with Windows Phone 8, this also includes what I believe to be bugs. Do note that I have come from an Android phone before jumping ship and getting myself a Windows Phone phone :-P.…

Windows Phone 8 + Nokia Lumia Series

In the coming few days I will be going over Microsoft’s latest mobile OS (Windows Phone 8) and Nokia’s WP8 flagship phone, the Lumia 920.

Just to give a bit of an introduction. I have recently (only a couple of weeks) moved away from the openness and flexible mobile platform, Android, to a (hopefully) more stable and predictable OS, Windows Phone 8. I decided to go all out and got myself the hyped Nokia Lumia 920.…

Fixing Windows Phone 8 to Windows 8 Tethering Issue

I have recently decided to jump over to the Windows Phone side, having been on Android and even developing a couple of apps on Android (I still like the platform though!).

I went for the very popular Nokia Lumia 920 (sure it is bulky compared to the HTC 8x, but it has a more solid build) and to be honest I’m not missing much compared to Android (email + WhatsApp + GPS navigation are the apps I use the most).…
