Lumia Cyan updates now available for all of India as Lumia 525, 720, 820 and 920 go wide

270

Over the last few days, Microsoft and its carrier partners have been busy pushing out the Lumia Cyan update for various Lumias. Today, we are updating our lists for the Lumia 525, Lumia 720, Lumia 820 and Lumia 920 as those phones have either completed their Cyan updates or have a few remaining carriers as holdouts.

Perhaps the biggest news is that all of India is now complete for the Lumia Cyan update. From the Lumia 520 all the way up to the Lumia 1520, all eleven of the country variant Lumias are now eligible for the 8.1 and new firmware updates. Considering how big a market India is for Windows Phone, this news demonstrates Microsoft's priorities in delivering updates to its users.

When it comes to the Lumia 720, 820 and 920 series, almost all regions and carrier updates are finished, with just a handful of carriers remaining (Tigo in Latin America seems unusually slow in approving).

Xbox One Kinect stand-alone to hit the market October 7 for $149.99 [Update: It's official]

136

Update Microsoft has issued the official announcement on the stand alone Kinect sensor for the Xbox One going on sale for $149.99, but with a slight date change to October 7. The company also says it will come with a code to download a free game, the upcoming Dance Central Spotlight from developer Harmonix.

Original story Ever since Microsoft decoupled the Kinect sensor from the Xbox One, the one lingering question was when would they sell it as a stand-alone unit? Offering an Xbox One without the Kinect sensor made financial sense in Microsoft's struggle against Sony, but it does not mean that people may never want to want to buy the Kinect at a later point. Until now though, there was no option to do so.

Box It, a challenging yet simple Windows Phone puzzle game

13

Box It is a Windows Phone arcade styled puzzle game that has addictive quality and not a shabby way to waste a little time with. The multi-level game has you drawing lines to capture portions of the playing field. It sounds easy but there are evil dots lurking about that will test not only your timing but also your patience.

Box It reminds me of an old arcade game that you'd find at the local Aladdin's Castle or convenience store in the early '80s. It's not a terribly complicated game with a simple gaming concept but just enough challenge about it to keep things interesting.

Available for low-memory devices, Box It has experienced decent success over on iOS and Android platforms and should see similar here on the Windows Phone platform.
