Microsoft appoints new Xbox and cloud leaders.




Satya Nadella
Microsoft CEO Satya Nadella is unveiling some management changes today,just days away from the company’s Build developer event in San Francisco.
 In an internal email to employees, Nadella highlights three management changes designed to help the firm "thrive and grow in a mobile-first, cloud-first world.




Phil Spencer
" First, Phil Spencer will take over Xbox and Xbox Live. Spencer will report directly to Windows chief Terry Myerson, and will be responsible for all the software side of Xbox. 






Scott Guthrie

The second management change sees Scott Guthrie take over the cloud and enterprise side of Microsoft, following his two-month acting leader role of that particular business.
 Guthrie has been at Microsoft for more than 15 years, making significant contributions to .NET and Microsoft’s cloud businesses. He’s also popular with developers, and regularly presents at Microsoft’s Build conferences.




Stephen Elop
The final management change is the confirmation of former Nokia CEO Stephen Elop’s role within Microsoft. Once the deal is complete, which is expected to be finalized in April, Elop will join Microsoft an the executive vice president of the Microsoft devices group. It’s a role that will see Elop report directly to Nadella, and he will oversee Windows Phone, Surface, and Xbox hardware.

Nokia Lumia 930 does not announce to Build

Nokia Lumia 930 does not announce to Build


Two days later, Microsoft will introduce Windows Phone 8.1 - the next generation of their operating system. 

We expect the presentation of two new devices from Nokia, but according to rumors, Nokia Lumia 930 will be announced at another event.


 Why such a conclusion? People who follow the news about the Nokia Lumia and Windows Phone 8.1, probably noticed that Nokia Lumia 630 appears active in many spy photos and videos.

 We know the full specifications, and also saw renderings of EvLeaks. 


But on the Nokia Lumia 930 is nothing like not audible.











Explain the lack of information about this smartphone can be very simple - the smartphone will be presented at another presentation. 

We know that Nokia will be your event on April 19. 

Perhaps it we see something new from the Finnish manufacturer.

 There is also good news: some sources say that Windows Phone 8.1 Developer Preview begins sent April 8, 2014, almost a week after the announcement. 

This corresponds to the rumors, according to which the update should be available within a week


Nevertheless, this information has not yet been confirmed, as is information about the global distribution of Windows Phone 8.1 will start in May.



Recall that Windows Phone 8.1 has received the status of RTM. Producers actively testing refreshed and ready to dump the operating system their new smartphones. 



At Mobile World Congress, Microsoft confirmed the cooperation with new producers, so that we can expect even more exciting smartphones.

Windows Phone 8.1: Sd Card support, to install apps and games on Sd card.




The Most awaited Windows Phone 8.1 OS's dev preview is expected to be released on 8th of April 2014 (as stated by NPU), which was earlier to be released on 2nd April at Build 2014, but due to some bugs and issues were left to resolve in the OS, but now as stated by WPC that windows phone 8.1 core work is finished and OS is with some manufacturers. So we can expect the release of dev preview soon.


The most talked about feature which Windows Phone 8.0 lacks is the ability to install apps and games on SD card, Windows phone 8.1 update (all windows phone 8 devices can be updated to windows phone 8.1) adds this ability, but so as to keep the fastness, smoothness and zero lagging alive Microsoft has highlighted the minimum requirements of the SD card so as to install apps and game on SD card. 



 image source Nawzil
"Minimum speed levels required to support the app installation movement to SD card

is above Class 6 SDHC card Class 10 SDHC. No support for Class 4 SDHC cards or below. Windows Phone will automatically detect the inserted SD card and if the SD card
 speed does not support the minimum requirements, the app movement form phone to SD card option gets deactivated."




This hereby concludes that windows phone 8.1 will be alike windows phone 8.0 in terms of speed, privacy and with no comprise with security of data.
