Not everyone wants or needs to upgrade to a new smartphone every year (or even every two years). In fact, some people are quite content with their four- or five-year old devices and continue to use them to this day. However, for users of smartphones running legacy Windows Phone operating systems, Microsoft is making it harder to remain stuck in the past. Microsoft announced that starting tomorrow, February 20th, smartphone users running Windows Phone 7.5 or Windows Phone 8.0 will no longer have access to push notifications. According to the company, the following features will no longer function: Your phone will no longer receive notifications. Your phone will not receive additional live tile... Read more...

A leaked roadmap for AT&T suggests the carrier is planning to launch the Nokia Lumina 900 on March 18 for a bargain price of $99.99 with a two-year contract. Considering this phone is expected to be one of the high-end Windows Phone devices of the year, the budget-friendly price is a little surprising.

And it will become available exclusively through AT&T in March," the online newsletter reads. A March release falls in line with comments by Nokia... Read more...
