    I thought Skype on WP8 ran in the background? They've really fucked that up if it doesn't (and I wont be buying a WP8 handset if that's the case).

    @Psychotext It doesn't run in the background in WP7 but does in WP8. It's still in beta though.

    Was checking out the Nokai apps list yesterday. Saw a new one, Photobeamer.

    Link and video

    Such an easy way to show off photos.

    I was suckered into buying one of these yesterday and I've already stuck it on eBay. The 4gb internal memory is way too small; most is taken up by Windows Phone 8 itself, leaving hardly any room for apps. Otherwise its quite a nice phone, but its no use if you want it for anything other than basic use.

    I think you can only side load apps from micro SD cards, not install them to the card so space is still an issue.

    True, you can't install apps on micro SD cards, only media. That makes the 8S a bit pointless even though it's a lovely handset. Only Samsung really nailed it on the storage front with their 16GB plus micro SD slot.

    Looks funky, but does that mean I have to buy the game twice?

    @robthehermit That's the question. Today for instance, ilomilo is available on Xbox 360, Windows Phone and Windows 8 but you have to buy it 3 times. I'm not sure this will change soon but this game if coming soon should answer some questions.

    Ilomilo is awesome sauce. Waiting for a sale on the WP version of that.

    If you want the original Bing maps back on Nokia phones, get the Maps app by big.info. There was already an app like that but this one has the original icon ;)

    It's what I'd do!

    Quick question for the thread - every time I see someone recommend a youtube app for WP, whether it be here, WMPU or WPC, it's always MetroTube. I use SuperTube, and am very happy with it, but I'm wondering what I'm missing.

    I tried out MetroTube ages ago when it was free, and it seemed much the same as SuperTube, and as I was used to the UI of the latter, I stuck with it. Is there anyone who's used both and can tell me what I'm missing? I know it's only 79p, but if it's just a nicer UI (rather than additional features), I can ignore that.

    Well for a start, the trial is fully functional so you might as well get it. I have both and they both work very well but MetroTube has indeed that UI that makes it stand out. Actually SuperTube was pretty ugly until MetroTube revamped their UI and "inspired" other YouTube apps. That said I believe SuperTube gives you access to full desktop video results rather than just the mobile ones. Illegal but very handy and it's not like Google will care enough to check.

    Oh ok, cheers for the reply. I don't think I've ever had a problem finding a video on ST, and the HQ option is almost always good enough in terms of PQ as well. I have a ton of saved videos too (mostly hard-to-find pieces of music that I start playing and then lock the phone), so I would have to look for them again on MT - I wish these were exportable to Music + Videos!

    I'll give the trial a shout now. Cheers again.

    If you like downloading videos then do stick with SuperTube, no reason to change. But it's nice to have both.

    Right! Christmas bonus received! Time to replace my broken Lumia 800.

    What's the best options for WP8? I'm tempted to hold off until the Lumia 920 goes properly SIM free or is it available from any unscrupulous online retailers fully unlocked?

    Clove appears to be selling the Lumia 920 unlocked but I'm a little apprehensive as to whether this will still be restricted to Orange/T-Mobile/EE.

    Anyone got any experience of this?

    I'm pretty sure Peew971's handset is from Clove and fully unlocked.

    Yes, that is correct. I just got an e-mail back from Clove confirming the phone is not flashed with the EE firmware and therefore works on all networks.

    Pity they don't expect any in stock until mid January...

    @Ignatius_Cheese Yep, mine is from Clove and is unlocked indeed.
    Expansys has stock but they're a tad more expensive than Clove. The 8X seems like a popular choice for those who don't mind 16GB of storage and the latest one out is the Ativ S. Reviews for that one are starting to come out, very good phone although it doesn't stand out next to a 920 or an 8X.

    @Ror1984 Everyone seems to be getting their free chargers now, did you get yours? I definitely wasn't eligible for one (tried to fool the site many times) so I'll go around and try to buy another one on Boxing Day.
