If you happen to be using a Windows Phone 8, you’re probably having a hard time looking for a decent alternative to Instagram’s native app which (still) isn’t available on the Windows platform.
If you’re still looking, check out the app called “6tag”.
It does everything Instagtam’s native app can do – tag people, like, video, comment, link to Twitter, Foursquare & Facebook (among others). Plus, on its recently released version, you can now also regram and use live tiles.
Yesterday, I was at the launch of Huawei’s Windows 8 smartphone called the “Ascend W1”.
It was a pretty intimate event at the PBCom Bldg. in Makati with select people from media together with Huawei and Microsoft executives.
When I was invited to attend, I was given prior information that this particular device was going to be positioned to target the lower-end market. This actually made it quite interesting for me considering the onslaught of dirt-cheap Android devices that have overrun the country. It is high time that a Windows Phone 8 should emerge within the same price bracket to mix it up with the rest of ’em.
Most, if not all Windows 8 devices in the market are still quite pricey which makes it a tad difficult for those who find the new Microsoft smartphone OS enticing but are held back due to its cost.
The Huawei Ascend W1 is perhaps the answer to that problem.
With a 5-Megapixel Rear Camera with LED Flash, a 1.2GHz Dual-Core Snapdragon Processor, an impressive screen display, a 1950mAh battery which they claim can last over a day on heavy use, and so much more, the Huawei Ascend W1 seems like a wonderful meld of smartphone features and affordability – and it retails for only (ready?) Php 8,990.00.
Getting tons of cool feedback about the Lumia 800 – highly regarded as Nokia’s “first REAL Windows phone”.
It’s been quite sometime since a Nokia device has actually left me in awe… and though the Lumia 800’s smooth sexy slick body is something I’ve yet to behold, gutfeel tells me this gorgeous baby’s new Windows “Mango” OS is going to be all sorts of wonderful.
Finally, with Nokia sporting a good-lookin’ and more superior OS compared to their aging Symbian platform, it finally has a device that can seriously go head-to-head with iOS and Android.
The Nokia Lumia 800 is exclusively with Globe and is FREE under their Unli Surf Combo Plan 1799. Pretty awesome as well.
Hoping to get my hands on one and test drive its cool interface myself. First-hand experience and review very soon.
Can’t wait? Head over to Globe and grab one right now.
