Do you have Windows Phone 8 (see review)? Okay, well probably not quite yet but if you are about to get one and you have some Bing points sitting by (you know, those things you get for every time you do a search using Bing on your computer), you can use 'em for the Windows Phone Store.

Yup, Bing Rewards has two special Windows Phone 8 offers on hand--one for 170 credits ($1.25) and one for 525 credits ($5). Redeeming them will turn into credits/voucher for the Store, which you can then use to buy Windows Phone apps...

For you U.S. Cellular peeps out there, some more Windows Mobile love is coming hot on the heels of the Palm Touch Pro. Up this time is the Samsung Code, which is a name we hadn't yet heard.

The Code is described as "a Windows Mobile 6.1 multi-media Smartphone with a full QWERTY keyboard, Bluetooth, 2.0 megapixel camera, ActiveSnc and removable memory slot."

In other words, it's a smartphone. Other than that? We'll just have to wait and see. Look for it June 18.
