We haven’t exactly been lacking for leaks of Samsung’s new Galaxy S IV ahead of its launch later today, but those looking for yet more can now get their fix courtesy of an extensive preview/review of the still-unofficial phone published by IT168. That’s the same site that’s been the source of a number of those aforementioned leaks in recent days. While it’s still not clear if the phone in their possession is identical to the Samsung’s final retail device, it certainly appears to be a well-polished version, and decidedly familiar for anyone accustomed to the Galaxy S III. The preview goes particularly in-depth on the phone’s screen, even going so far as to put it under a microscope to compare it to the Galaxy S3 and Note II. Hit the source link below for a closer look yourself.

Microsoft’s rebuilt Skype app is now available to download for those early Windows Phone 8 shoppers. While we already took a tour of the new app last month, you’re now able to do the same. New features include Skype contacts within the People Hub (and access directly from there), while you’ll be able to login to the service with either your Microsoft or Skype account — no option yet to merge the two. You will be able to send messages to anyone still using Messenger, but more importantly, receive both Skype calls and chat missives even when the app is whirring in the background. Incoming call notifications will appear on screen and its very own Live Tile will then notify you of any messages (though not calls) missed.
This is still a preview of a final product, however, and some issues with incoming calls meaning it could tap into your cellular data connection even if WiFi is hooked up after the call is accepted. At the moment, incoming calls when the app is closed will only be delivered through audio, even if the other person is trying to send video. Similarly, if you exit the app during a video call, the stream will be cut short. There’s also no ability to edit your phone contacts and there’s some missing Windows Phone integration links on this early build. Hit up the source for a full list of the early drawbacks and if you’re still in, the second source will send you to the download. We’ve also added our recent hands-on video after the break.
Please visit www.windowsphonedevelopments.com. I have managed to create a Tiled(TMX) Map Loader on the XNA Content Pipeline for Windows Phone 7. At the moment, it transfer all the information from the XML file, through to the different stages of the content pipeline (importer, processor, writer, reader). There are a few extra bits I need to do before I share the code. Please be patient and visit my website www.windowsphonedevelopments.com for the latest post and up-to-date information.Related Posts:
Microsoft has started shipping a final version of its Office 2013 RT software a little earlier than expected. The software maker announced the Release to Manufacturing of Office 2013 and Office 2013 RT earlier this month and the company previously promised a final version of Office 2013 RT between November and January via Windows Update. Windows RT tablets ship with a preview version of Office 2013 RT built into the operating system.
Ars Technica reports that a final version of Office 2013 RT is now available for Windows RT users. The 580MB update nixes the “Preview” branding across Office 2013 RT and is available from Windows Update. The early release means that Windows RT users will now have access to a final version of Office 2013 RT…
Microsoft promised that sign-ups for a Windows Phone 8 SDK Preview Program would open today, and the company has followed through. Although the near-final kit will be available to current Windows Phone developers, Microsoft says access to the program is limited. A full Windows Phone 8 SDK will be made available publicly later this year once the company unveils Windows Phone 8, but the Preview Program will provide early access to developers.
Windows Phone developers can head over to Microsoft’s connect site until Monday, September 17 at 5pm PDT to register. Developers accepted into the program will hear from Microsoft in the “following week with instructions on how to download the SDK.” Microsoft says the limited Preview Program, instead…
This is a video of the game Matchingo for Windows Phone 7. Matchingo is a twist on your typical memory card matching game. This game is easy enough for kids, and tough enough for adults. This video shows how you can customize Matchingo to be custom to you. This is an ‘indie’ game – meaning it was created by me in my spare time, not a professional game development company.

Splashtop has long focused on providing remote desktop applications for Android tablets and iPads, and now that Windows 8 is nearly upon us it has seen fit to release a similar solution for the tablet-friendly OS. The app — naturally called Splashtop Remote Desktop — should function just like its Android and iOS brethren and allow you to view, control, and modify your Windows or Mac over the web. The free companion streaming software is only available for Windows XP or greater or Mac OS X 10.6 or newer, and you’ll need to set up your computer with a static IP address for the app to be able to connect and give you control. The Windows 8 app is currently just a consumer preview version, so it’s not clear what features — if any —…
We got an early look at Windows Phone 8 back in June, but thanks to a Software Development Kit (SDK) leak this week we’ve been able to uncover even more features destined for Microsoft’s next mobile operating system. The SDK contains an emulator that provides basic access to some of the new functionality in Windows Phone 8.

It’s been about three years since Microsoft unveiled a new version of Office, and particularly with Windows 8 just months away from dropping, the software has been well overdue for an upgrade. Today, Redmond unveiled the latest edition — Office 2013 (aka Office 15) — which the company will be showing in a preview stage until the final version goes on sale (hit up the source link if you want to download it for yourself).
Perhaps the biggest news isn’t any single feature Microsoft’s added to Word (hello, easy YouTube embeds!), but how and where you’ll access your files. With this version, the company is moving to a subscription-based model wherein your Office files are tied to your Microsoft ID. Once you sign up, you can download the various desktop apps to a certain number of devices and, as with Windows 8, your settings, SkyDrive files and even the place where you left off in a document will follow you from device to device. (It’s telling, we think, that files now save to the cloud by default.) As you’d expect, too, this version is also more tablet-friendly than editions past, with a touch mode that widens the spacing between onscreen objects and flattens menus. In Word and PowerPoint, you’ll also find a read-only mode that turns documents into full-screen editions, whose pages you can swipe through as you would an e-book or digital magazine.
Of course, Microsoft included plenty of granular updates like PDF editing and a behind-the-scenes Presenter View in PowerPoint. Fortunately for you, curious power users, we’ve been spending the better part of a week testing the software on a Samsung Series 7 Slate loaded up with Windows 8. So join us past the break where we’ll give you a detailed breakdown of what’s new, along with screenshots and detailed first impressions.
