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.
My review went live today. I'm starting this forum post for Q&A, followup and other discussion. Please let me know if you have any questions about the device.
Amazing display that is well suited for multiple content types Great speakers that truly set the device apart LTE is built right in Overal design
It could be lighter, but only since the iPad Air started shipping is weight a thing with larger tablets The screen's backlight bleed can be annoying to some, apparently some of these devices have it better or worse than others Windows RT - I believe the platform won't gain enough traction and a Bay Trail Atom running full x86 Windows would have helped this product succeed
I will continue testing the device and will update the forums with thoughts as I go along.
