Nokia has sent up a press invite to some of the popular bloggers in India for an event which will be held at New Delhi on 6th of July.With the upcoming Batman movie Dark Knight Rises right around the corner,its about the right time to kick in with the promotions with special edition Phones.
If we have a look at the press invitation which sport a Dark Knight Rises poster in the background,indicates that we might see a Nokia Lumia 900 Special Dark Knight Rises Edition phones along with the normal version of Lumia 900 and the entry level Lumia 610.Though none of the releases have been confirmed from the official sources at this moment.
There’s also talks about the New Music Services from Nokia,The Nokia Music store might also be launched for the Lumia devices.Along with the Mix Radio Music Streaming application for Lumia and we can see a version of the same for the recently launched Pureview 808.
It remains to be seen after the announcement a couple of weeks ago about the future of existing Windows Phones not getting the Windows Phone 8 update and rather a Windows Phone 7.8,would people take interest in buying a hardware which won’t support the upcoming version of Windows Phone ?
Skype has just released the full version(earlier it was in beta) for Windows Phone over the Windows Phone Marketplace.The popular VoIP app is available for download for free over the marketplace.
Currently Microsoft has Tested and verified the following Window Phone Devices whch can perfectly run the Skype 1.0 app without any issue,here is the list of certified devices,
• Nokia Lumia 710
• Nokia Lumia 800
• Nokia Lumia 900
• HTC Titan
• HTC Radar
• Samsung Focus S
• Samsung Focus Flash
At the moment the low end Tango based devices which run on 256MB devices,as reported earlier on their blog post
,that Skype would require atleast 512MB of memory to install and Run Skype on a Windows Phone devices.
As we know Microsoft updated their Hardware Specifications for the lower end Windows Phone Devices with minimum 256MB RAM,after which we saw the release of devices like the Nokia Lumia 610,ZTE Orbit with these new low end hardware specifications.So there are known issues wihlow end devices running the Skype app.
But according to Nokia that is not the case,in fact Nokia itself came forward and reported to Engadget
,about the app which ran perfectly wellon Lumia 610,stating that there were some initial challenges running the app on it.Though they didn’t went into detailing what challenges they faced while making it run on the lower end windows phone.
At the moment there is no word on other low end devices being able to run the skype app,we can expect the upcoming version of the app to be compatible with the low end devices .
