I had a brief encounter with the TYLT Capio NFC Enabled Universal Smatphone Car Mount, and i think it is amazing. Especially with my Nokia Lumia 920. I have tried a lot of Car Mounts ever since i got my Lumia 920 and none worked for me. During the week end i had the chance to try the TYLT Capio and it blew my mind away. I think its the perfect companion to the Lumia 920 for use in the car.
The Sticky pad technology is amazing and hold the phone firmly. I recommend this Car Mount to everyone with a Lumia 920 or any other Smartphone.
The TYLT Capio w/ NFC is the next evolution in how smartphones are mounted in cars. Using a patented sticky technology, the mount can securely hold your device in place without clamps or brackets.
The CAPIO with NFC can be mounted on a dash board for easy access. The CAPIO will instantly adjust to fit any phone and can instantly be detached and repositioned. In addition to hands-free support, the CAPIO allows the driver to use their NFC-enabled Smartphones to set up custom profiles for an easier and safer drive using NFC Task LauncherTM.

I have been blessed for the second time with a beautiful baby girl, born two weeks ago and in good health. Thats the main reason I’ve been away from the blog for a while. A good friend of mine, My Nokia Lumia 920 was a great companion during this happy event and I can assure you that the Camera on the Lumia was in overdrive. I really experienced the power of the Lumia 920 camera and I am very satisfied. So if you are expecting good news go ahead and grab a Lumia 920, and trust me you wont regret it.
To come back to the Blog. I hope all readers are doing well and keeping up to date with Nokia News. I will be posting new stuff on the blog starting today. As always I thank you for your support.

Turn any neighborhood into your neighborhood with Local Scout on your Windows Phone. You can jump right to information on nearby restaurants and bars, places to shop, things to see and do—even events happening in town. Plus, you’ll see detailed info and reviews, hours of operation, directions, and deals. And you can set your Windows Phone to learn what you like as you use it, so you’ll see personalized recommendations right at the top of your local search results.
Nokia Conference makes it very easy to dial into conference calls. No more switching to the calendar app, remembering the ID/PIN codes, getting the right access number, switching to the phone app, making the call, and entering all the codes. Instead just hit one button or even join via voice command. It’s very handy for anyone that makes frequent conference calls, as so many of us do.
To join via voice, hold down the Windows key and speak the command “conference join”. We’ll automatically figure out which meeting is going on currently or about to start, say it back to you for confirmation, and connect you. If your company uses Lync, we’ll launch the Lync app to connect you.
Settings for many companies’ conference systems are stored on our server and recognized automatically. For those that aren’t, you can define the settings yourself (then you should share them with us, to spare your coworkers the trouble). If you find a conference system that doesn’t work well with the app for some reason, please let us know.
If you make conference calls to several different companies, that’s fine–we’ll automatically figure out which conference system settings to use.
After installing, you probably want to pin it to your Home screen, placing it near the top if you make many conference calls. It may become one of your most frequently used apps on the phone.

What happens when you give freerunning World Champion Ryan Doyle and traceur (that’s the official title for a male parkour practitioner) Will Sutton a couple of Nokia Lumia 920s to play with? You get a great way to put the smartphone’s video capturing capabilities through its paces.
Twelve Nokia Lumia 920s, each filming from a different perspective, were used to create the action-packed video. For the aerial shots one of the smartphones was strapped on to a radio controlled Cinestar Octocopter (keep an eye out for it in the video). The rest of the video was filmed using a combination of handheld, chest and head cam mounted phones – each shooting in 1080p HD.
The result is clear. With the best low-light performance in a smartphone to date, and the added benefit of Optical Image Stabilisation (OIS), the Nokia Lumia 920 makes it easy to capture all the action – day or night. Find out more here: http://nokia.ly/10TU0Zn
