Windows Phone 7.8 features revealed, coming soon

Windows Phone Italy has spilled the beans on the Windows Phone 7.8 upgrade.  As always we should take whatever is said with a grain of salt until the official release, but in their Facebook page Windows Phone Italy said Windows Phone:

“The upgrade to 7.8 will be available for versions 7.0 and 7.5 shortly after the marketing of the devices Windows Phone 8. Among the features there is the new Start screen , the sharing of the calendar using the function Club and access to key services and content Microsoft, including Xbox Music Store library that can be enjoyed by Zune and Xbox SmartGlass.”

So in  short the features may include the Rooms feature, Xbox Music and of course the start screen.  While we would of course always hope for more, I think I would be satisfied with this gesture.

Nokia Play To for Windows Phone – Nokia Beta Labs

Still in the Beta phase, Nokia Play To application is a very interesting addon to the Lumia range. Nokia Play To is still residing at Nokia Beta Labs and can be downloaded if you register as a Beta Tester. With the “Play To” application for Nokia Lumia phones you can show pictures and videos wirelessly on other DLNA capable devices (TV’s, BlueRay players, Mediaplayer in Windows 7, etc…) connected to their network. Future releases of the application are planned to also include support for music.

Known issues in this release

  • There are known interoperability issues with Sony Bravia TV that prevent Video being shared correctly.
  • High Resolution video may not share correctly.
  • The application does not support Media Server functionality and cannot be detected by devices such as Microsoft Xbox360 and/or Sony Playstation3.
    This functionality is being planned for a future release.

Lets hope this App will graduate soon and become a commercial product on the Marketplace.

Nokia partners FC Barcelona in new campaign

NEW DELHI, OCTOBER 22:
Nokia India on Monday joined hands with FC Barcelona for a campaign for its Lumia smartphone customers in which 11 winners will travel to Barcelona to meet the team and watch them play at Camp Nou.

The company also unveiled its new brand campaign for this association, ‘Tiki Taka with Nokia Lumia’, to broaden consumer engagement around club football.

“Today football is gaining significant traction and the youth is following club football with a lot of enthusiasm. We believe that this association will bring fans closer to football and FC Barcelona like never before,” D. Shivakumar, SVP, Nokia India Middle East and Africa, said.

The consumer campaign will run for six months, enabling fans to constantly engage with brands through a variety of touchpoints, including digital, television, on-ground activation and an exclusive mobile application on Nokia Lumia smartphones.

“‘Tiki Taka with Nokia Lumia’ campaign is based on FC Barcelona’s famous style of play — ‘Tiki Taka’. However, more than the style of play, the campaign embodies the philosophy of Tiki Taka — sharing, connecting people, being spontaneous and social,” Antoni Rossich, Chief Executive Officer, FC Barcelona said.

“This association with Nokia India will create an excellent platform for Indian youth to engage with us, and bring the club closer to its Indian fans,” he said, adding that football has emerged as the second most popular sport in India (after cricket).
