Although full of pride, many Lumia 1520 users also have a sense of humor in regards to wielding such a massive device in public. Take, for instance, the following two videos made by WPCentral Forum member nickniko, which shows some humorous benefits in owning a coveted Lumia 1520.

The budget-friendly Celkon 'Win 400' Windows Phone gets spied in leaked photo

36

Usually when it comes to smartphone image leaks, it is the high-end flagships caught in a flash. A few days ago though, Celkon's new Win 400 was spied for the first time on Gizbot revealing its white or black color schemes.

If Celkon does not ring a bell, the company is yet another white-label, budget smartphone maker popular in India and other emerging markets. Back in June, the company came forward with an announcement for supporting Windows Phone, hot on the heels of fellow rival Micromax and Cherry Mobile.

Notion Ink is now making convertibles, launches Windows-powered CAIN 2-in-1 in India

23

Snapdeal and Intel today announced the launch of Notion Ink's 'CAIN' 2-in-1. Powered by the Intel Atom Processor Z3735D, the Windows 8.1 convertible is priced at ₹19,990 ($330), and is exclusively available on Snapdeal, India's leading online marketplace.

Editing tools include cropping, exposure controls, vignette application and a few tonal filters. You also have an in-house camera app just in case you need to snap a quick shot while in the editor.

Monochromatic is not a feature rich editor such as Photoshop Express but the Windows Phone photo editor does come across a nice option when you need to do a quick, simple edit of your images.
