Okay so today Best Buy opened up pre-orders for the Nokia Lumia 920! I hopped in my car and drove down to ours and got my self one pre-ordered.
One thing though, if you pre-order at the store, it is only the matte black one. I was really wanting the cyan one but black will do. That was my second choice.
On the otherhand, if you pre-order online, you can choose which color. Weird, I know... Colors you can choose from are: Black, Red, Yellow, Cyan, White.
As of right now, AT&T has not started pre-orders. I called and verified that with them.
I am currently waiting on my new Lumia 920 to arrive in the mail from AT&T.
As exciting as that is, let me present my question.
I've had an HTC Evo 4g (PC36100) for the past two years, and one thing I've loved about it is the ability to hook it up to my tv via HDMI.
I know that the 920 has DLNA instead of HDMI, and I am actually considering buying a new tv for christmas.
Which brings me to the topic of my rant [slash] my question:
Why is it so hard to find a tv (or, preferably, a projector - I know, I'm weird) that is DLNA-certified?
Retailers and manufacturers just don't list "DLNA-certified" as a feature of their products! WHYYYYYYYYY?!
Is there some date that I'm not aware has passed, after which all tvs (and projectors?) are required to be DLNA-certified?
Please, help me find a new tv or projector that I can connect my 920 to, so I can get my NetFlix on.
Looks like Nokia has started rolling out the Amber Update. I just installed it on my Verizon 928. The availability is listed here. Seems to be only a few handsets so far.
The glance screen seems useful as does the double tap to unlock. Remains to be seen what the effect on battery life is. I'm just installing the new photo/video apps now so can't comment on them.
The update seems problem free so far.
Is anyone aware of App(s) available for call Blocking on Windows Phones?
I have read that Nokia is pushing it out as an update but that carriers (like AT&T wireless) have been slow (I'm shocked) in adopting it http://betanews.com/2013/08/09/nokia-adds-call-and-sms-blocking-to-part-of-its-lumia-windows-phone-8-lineup/
iOS 7 has call blocking now http://www.wired.com/gadgetlab/2013/09/iphone-call-block-faq/ so I was hoping that Windows would have it one way or the other.
