    @Ror1984 You can check the Black availability like with Amber on the Nokia support page. It does seem that EE is still waiting for approval for the 920 though!

    I'm not on a major carrier but the rollout is for 1020 and 925 models first anyway.

    Yeah I did check that yesterday, cheers. Though they had a similar page up for Amber and I ended up getting it before it said it was available.

    Now that I think about it, I remember reading about it heading to those models first! I'm sure I'll be looking at quite a wait.

    The camera app is quite good in the new update, combines Smartcam with a pro camera app. Seems slower than the standard camera but I guess that's the trade-off..

    I don't have much use for the app folders, there are only a handful of apps I use regularly enough. Beamer is a nice concept but is slow as hell (me being in China may be something to do with that though).

    The ability to get live scores on Glance is pretty cool.

    Like what? I was a bit disappointed.

    Anyone know if Threshold (Win 9 OS family) will be supported on current WP8 devices? Wondering if maybe now isn't the time to upgrade...

    @twelveways For me it added the ability to close apps easily, screen rotation lock and personalised message tones. I wanted all 3 of those.

    Anyone use a good docking station for their WP? Currently use a radio with a AUX cable but some tracks play really quietly meaning I'm constantly having to turn the volume up and down.

    So I've bagged 20 quid store credit; are there any decent paid games (or apps) worth the investment?

    I'm currently looking at Halo Spartan Assault, Into the Dead, Skulls of the Shogun and possibly Chaos Rings. Anything else or alternatives?

    Odd question but how do you 100% delete a song from a WP? I deleted a song only for it to keep reappearing but now it has a signal icon under it as it has to buffer before it plays which I'm guessing means its in the cloud?

    If you are connected to the internet or have used/are using SkyDrive, then the song (annoyingly) keeps reappearing.

    ... another 'quirk' of Microsoft and their fumblesome ideas.

    Apple does the same.

    Anyway... delete it from the cloud.

    I see no option on my phone?

    Edit - did it on my tablet and that seems to have worked.

    Is it caused by having the "Xbox Music Cloud collection" toggle on? I have it off as, even though I sub to XBM, I don't tend to stream music on my phone.

    EDIT - asking that as I've never had the duplicate song issue.

    Good Lord!

    ... I certainly hope Nokia does a similarly international version of the new Lumia Icon that is (unfortunately) exclusive to Verizon in the US of A.

    The Engadget review makes me want it pretty badly; sounds like the first steps for their future Lumia line up.

    A big step forward for Windows Phone

    : )

    @CharlieStCloud I think spec-wise, the Icon sounds great. The design reminds me of an Iphone though!

    Having read recently about all the new (and genuinely useful) features in WP 8.1, I'm quite excited for its release. Probably won't happen anytime soon though. :( I wonder if they'll have a developer preview program, like with GDR3, where folks can get it earlier?

    I've been using WP for 6 months now and I still don't know if I prefer it to Android or not. it's a confusing time in my life.

    FIFA 14 goes free to play. Only pay if you want manager or exhibition mode.

    Link

    Cortana can call users by their name or nicknames like "Master Chief" after they’re enabled in the settings.


    They had to do it. Can't wait.

    Oh boy! Bastards I've been back on Android 3 months and then they go and release the Icon and Cortana.

    I miss the simplicity and ease of use of Windows phone but I don't miss the lack of apps/app quality.

    Come and get it cumslingers!

    There's a GBA emulator called Purple Cherry X... It's brilliant!

    Got Final Fantasy VI and Pokémon Emerald for free! Some of the games cost 79p but all in all, probably the best thing that's been released!

    So glad I found it as I was tempted to spank Ł200 on a 3DS XL for my daily commute, but this is more than adequate!

    NICE!

    Thanks Latin, I love the phones but I do get a bit depressed whenever I look at the available apps in the marketplace.
