Windows Phone 7’s Xbox Connection – Over 60 games at launch

xblwp7 While many industry pundits are not expecting Windows Phone 7 to achieve the success of iOS, Android or indeed its Windows Mobile forebear, Microsoft still boasts one thing only one other phone manufacturer can boast – a console division.  It seem while Sony’s gaming tie in with any phones is still in the rumour stages, Gates’ guys have unleashed the full weight of the Xbox name to push WP7 into the public consciousness.  Over 60 games have been announced, some from the excellent Xbox Live library including Castlevania, De Blob and Hexic and others from full retail titles such as Assassin’s Creed, Splinter Cell and Halo.  While the quality of the games is still unknown, their pedigree can’t be faulted and could prove to be the trump card MS can hold over Apple and Google with the general public.

See the games here on the dedicated Microsoft site, and watch some of them in action here.

HTC Desire HD and Desire Z all but confirmed for UK release


It seems to  now be tradition that high-profile mobile phone releases should be leaked multiple times before any mention from the manufacturer themselves. Not for the first time, the HTC Desire HD and Desire Z (the Vision) have slipped through the system and have appeared on a respectable British retailer site. The Desire HD steals the spotlight in specification terms, and according to, will have Froyo 2.2 driven by a 1GHz processor, 4.3 inch display, and 720p video recording. This will be announced most likely on the 15th of September at the HTC press event we will be attending. Joining the HD will be the Android qwerty slider, the Desire Z. It’s listed to have a 1GHz processor too, but on a smaller 3.7 inch display and and interestingly, Android 2.1.

Although Vodafone have not announced this I have been given an anonymous tip off that they have just received 500 red ones in stock which will be exclusive to Vodafone.

These clearly are not for sale now but it wont be long so we will endeavor to keep you up to date. Looks pretty good in red, don’t you think?

Nokia C6 mega unboxing video

Nokia C6 mega unboxing videoAs you are probably aware, if you have been paying attention, Matt was invited by Nokia to attend a secret event last night in London. Led across London by two lovely ladies (and a decent bloke) from WOMworld he was taken to the Millennium bridge for possibly the largest unboxing video ever!

This was part of the #Nokiabox experience that Matt and just seven other bloggers have been part of worldwide. (Yes, he does feel quite honoured!)

Ever wondered what Matt looks like in front of the camera for a change? Have a look at the video below so see him and the Nokia C6 in action.

Not quite as detailed as our normal unboxing videos, Matt wasn’t expecting it, but just a bit of fun. We will do a ‘normal’ unboxing video to give you a little more in depth info on the device so keep your eyes peeled over the next few days.
