Surface Pro launches in Japan and packs 256GB for the first time + Office 2013 in included

surface-pro-japan-05-29-13-01

Microsoft will start selling the Surface Pro tablet in Japan on June 6 and it will be sold in 2 different versions as is the case elsewhere in the world, but with some noticeable differences. The storage will double to 128 GB and a 256 GB and it will include Office Home and Business 2013.

Let’s hope the rest of the world get’s these storage updates and that Office 2013 is included for free, similar to the Surface RT.

Windows Azure Mobile Services – Backend for Your Windows 8, iOS, and Android Apps

sshot-437

Mobile app developers don’t need to care about servers and clouds, push notification services and databases. Windows Azure Mobile Services is a cloud-based offering that provides a complete backend for mobile apps including data access and push notifications, enabling you to focus on the mobile app infrastructure and code and forget about the server management intricacies. In this talk we’ll build a backend for a Windows 8 app, an iOS app, and an Android app — all accessing the same data store and server-side triggers.

Nokia Lumia 920 wins prestigious ‘Innovative Handset’ Award 2013

Congratulations Nokia on winning this prestigious award.

“When you take a look at the Nokia Lumia 920 it’s easy to see why it should be given the award. Not content to simply cram more processing power into an old design, the Nokia Lumia 920 brings innovation to the screen in the use of PureMotion HD+ to deliver the fastest screen refresh rates yet, while the super-sensitive technology means you can use the screen even when wearing gloves.

When it comes to innovation in camera tech, the Nokia Lumia 920 delivers Optical Image Stabilisation that is normally only found in high-end video cameras, while the use of PureView delivers stunning low-light images for an amazing experience.

Then there are the little touches, like bringing wireless charging and NFC to the mainstream, as well as the wealth of apps you’ll find from Nokia that support and expand the ecosystem.”
