Microsoft’s Windows Phone 8.1 world conquest plan: folders!

Ebin published a link to a Microsoft page categorised as having something to do with Windows Phone 8 and the title “Create folders on my Start screen”. That page has since disappeared from Windowsphone.com, but not from Google’s cache.

The page offers the following procedure for creating a folder:

  • On Start Start button, tap and hold a Tile.
  • Drag the Tile on top of another Tile that you want to have in the same folder. You have just created a folder!
  • To name the folder, tap Name folder, and then type whatever name you like.
  • To add another Tile to the folder, simply tap and hold a Tile, and then drag it into the folder.

In other words, exactly the same folder-creating routine from iOS and Android.

It’s official: Nokia’s Verizon Lumia 928 is here

More likely to follow next week

Nokia’s long-rumoured exclusive phone for Verizon, the Lumia 928, has been officially announced.

It’s really a Lumia 920 with a more tapered body, an AMOLED (Active-Matrix Organic Light-Emitting Diode) screen, and a proper, grown-up Xenon camera flash.

It’s also lost some weight: at 161.5g, it’s a fair bit lighter than the 920’s 185g, although the battery capacity is the same. A wild variety of rumours circulating since Christmas suggested it had a new aluminium case and had lost wireless charging – neither being true.

Verizon has confirmed it will stock the device at $100 with a two-year contract, from 16 May.

The latest smartphone rumour…
It seems that for their next flagship smartphones, both Apple and Samsung are going to adopt wireless charging technology in some form.

This is already used by several manufacturers, for example, Nokia with its Lumia 920 phone.

Essentially, the tech allows owners to charge their smartphone without attaching any cables, they just have to put the handset on a charging device (or “pillow” as they’re commonly referred to, although we wouldn’t recommend sleeping on one).
