Nokia Gives Accessibility Update For Windows Phone 8



Sporting a 41-megapixel camera that gives the device a significant bump on the back, the Lumia 1020 is hardly being presented as a smartphone at all, but really a camera that can use apps and make phone calls.




Nokia Gives Accessibility Update For Windows Phone 8



Well...I have been an iPhone and iOS fan forever until I saw Nokia phones recently. I must admit that I am highly tempted to dump my iPhone and move to Windows Phone on a heartbeat. I like everything the 1020 or the 1520 has to offer (however, none of the mobile services providers seem to offer the 1520 in Canada) and the Windows Phone 8 UI is quite nice. I guess Nokia will update the 1020 soon too...


There are two programs to run on your Mac for the Windows phone. One of them is similar to the section of iTunes that let's you sync your iPhone. It has tabs for movies, music, podcasts, etc. you just click the tab and select the items you want or whether you want it to automatically update those items or select manually. When the phone is detected (by plugging it in to the computer...no wireless computer connection here) it downloads your JPEG images automatically to iPhoto and then let's you make all the media choices. The only problem you will have is with the files that may be DRM protected but there is a way to convert those as well and then transfer to the windows phone.


As for the operating system on the phone I think it is great and I am not a fan of Microsoft at all. It is a fresh new interface to work with and the larger screen really makes a difference. I am really surprised how much I like it. There are a few things to get used to but it doesn't take long. The new Windows 8.1 update adds things like a notification centre for access to a lot of the settings quickly which is useful. I do miss the 'find my iPhone' app but there is a web based alternative for the windows phones as well. I also have an iPad in case I miss anything...but there are only a couple of apps I miss. Most apps are available on Windows phones it just takes some experimenting to find the good photo apps.


The images from the 1020 really are great, indoors and out. The original software on the camera made the images oversaturated but now that I have done two updates it is significantly better and I have the RAW to work with anyways. If you can find the Nokia case that has the built-in shutter and camera grip it is worth the investment. It makes the phone bigger but it still fits in my front pocket. The extra battery in the grip doesn't provide a lot of extra battery power but it is good to have if you are using the xenon flash at all or are out for a day of shooting.


The difficulty might be getting the retailers and re-sellers to stock a range of windows phones in quantity. I still doubt the 10% figure will happen but if all buyers were rational it would easily achieve that.


"They've said they're going to be a devices and services company. We know they want to be a device company since they're buying the Nokia phone division," he said. "This kind of thing gives more credibility to the idea they'll be more of a services company as well."


As with other parental controls, Screen Time lets parents set a daily limit on the amount of time their child can spend on their iPhone, as well as automatically shut the phone down at bedtime. But unlike third-party iOS apps like Qustodio and unGlue for the iPhone, Screen Time provides parents with a deeper look at how their child is using their device, by showing how much time their child spends on social networking or entertainment apps. Compared with third-party apps, Screen Time also gives parents the most flexibility to manage how much time their child spends on certain kinds of apps; for instance, parents can allow their child to read ebooks for as long as they want, block all games, and limit social networking to an hour a day.


Windows Phone is still far behind Android in terms of features and apps. Microsoft has given up on Windows Phone and some old phones like Lumia 720, 520 have been abandoned by the company. The old Lumias can no longer receive new updates, in other words, the old Lumias are nothing more than a brick. You can, however, run Android on Lumia instead of Windows 10 and give your phones a new life.


Canonical failed because, to be frank, the people managing Ubuntu Phone were idiots. From Mir to Unity 8, everything they did was ghastly. With the right people, they could have gone to market years earlier.Plasma Phone hasn't failed, because it still exists, and wasn't dependent upon external adulation anyway.Sailfish still exists, so it hasn't failed yet.But, then, if you cannot perceive the difference in approach towards a free software phone between nokia, intel, canonical, jolla, plasma or purism, you're blind. Every contender has approached the issue from a different perspective. But outside the free software community you won't find the fixity of purpose behind Plasma, which has zeroed in on convergence since the oughties.And then... If the purism campaign works, and they ship me a phone that works according to their specs, I'll be glad, even if they go broke after that. I'll have a device I can use without being a product, again. Steps toward a privacy-preserving phone Posted Oct 7, 2017 7:55 UTC (Sat) by jukk (guest, #90142) [Link] 350c69d7ab
