AT&T exclusive Nokia Lumia 920 up for grabs

urlOur friends at AT&T have always been friends of dada rocks for a number of years now.  This latest offering is just the current King of the hill in the Windows Phone department.  The Nokia Lumia 920 in white.

Lets get into the details…

4G LTE Nokia Lumia 920 with Windows Phone 8 was built for amazing clarity, power and speed that lets you capture, share and relive moments as if you were still there. You’ll enjoy a rich user-experience in almost any conditions with the stunning 4.5-inch PureMotion HD and ClearBlack display that blocks incoming light reflections through a polarized layer to improve screen visibility under direct sunlight. The 332 ppi sculpted 2.5 D Corning Gorilla Glass 2.0, with color-boosting technology, Sunlight Readability Enhancement, High Brightness Mode, and a power-efficient LCD paired with 4G/LTE and Internet Explorer 10 make for faster, clearer web browsing.

Father’s Day Gift Idea: AT&T Nokia Lumia 900 Windows Phone

A recent study found that 56% of new Dads post family photos online at least two times a week. With built-in social networking on Windows Phone, sharing pictures with friends and family on Facebook and Twitter is a snap. It’s like the Swiss Army Knife of work-life-balance – it offers loads of features that make everyday tasks fast. This Father’s Day, give him the Nokia Lumia 900, which offers style and time savings for $99.99. Available on AT&T’s super-fast LTE network, here’s a peek at the features that will help Dad get the most out of his free time:

  • People Hub/Camera – Updating his social networks has never been easier or faster than with built-in Facebook, Twitter, and LinkedIn. With Windows Phone, it takes only four seconds to take a picture and upload it to a social network. It’s simply faster than other phones.
  • Office Hub – With the Office Hub, he can edit Word, Excel, and PowerPoint documents right from his phone. He’ll even be able to skip out a few hours early and play hooky at the baseball game by sending email and updating those documents from anywhere.
  • Groups – Put Dad in charge of the family reunion this year. With Groups he can easily group people together – family, friends, or colleagues – and pin them to his start screen. He can then check on all their social media updates in once place and keep everyone updated on the annual family get-together at once.
  • Music + Videos – The Music + Videos Hub in Windows Phone puts all of Dad’s media in one place. It’s his destination for all things media and entertainment, including finding and playing his favorite songs, videos or podcasts; listening to FM radio; and downloading or streaming music from the Web. And, if Dad hears a great new song but doesn’t recognize it, he can use the new Bing Music feature to identify the song and take him to Zune Marketplace to purchase or stream it
  • Apps –

o    ESPN ScoreCenter: Bringing him scores, news, and standings from hundreds of sports leagues around the world. ScoreCenter offers the most comprehensive global sports coverage available on the Windows Phone. 

o    Flixster: be the first Dad on the block to see all this summer’s blockbuster action flicks. With Flixster, Dad can view the top box office leaders, upcoming movies, and new DVD releases, and watch high quality trailers for over 15,000 blockbuster and indie flicks

o    MSN Onit: Every day, dad will find new photos of beautiful cars, financial tips and fitness tips, style advice and sports updates, DIY from steak grilling to demolition–plus a touch of science, a touch of entertainment, and a laugh or two.

The Nokia Lumia 900 Windows Phone from AT&T is a premiere device priced at $99.99 with a two-year contract, making it an affordable gift for Dad that doesn’t skimp on quality or user experience.

TeleNav GPS Plus Review and Giveaway of 1 year of service

Stopping for directions as I said was never one of my strong suits, but enter the age of GPS and now I just need to know a few key pieces of information and I really should get where I’m going. Well what happens when you don’t have those pieces of information like where’s a nearby restaurants that might have a changing table for kiddo, or a nice place to grab a bite to eat, or the best yet where to get gas. Not just gas stations but this little wonder app will show you the cheapest gas prices as well. Over the course of this summer I’ve saved at least 30 dollars, which when you think about the fact this app is $0.99 for the first 30 days. After your first 30 days are up, take advantage of the special summer offer and get 12 months of TeleNav GPS Plus for just $9.99/year. That’s over 50% off the regular $21.99/year price. Or subscribe for just $2.99/month but this is a limited time offer. To get started with the $0.99 – 30 day trial just download the app from iTunes.

Key features:

  • Find cheap gas prices nearby – updated daily!
  • Get clear spoken turn-by-turn directions from people, not robots
  • Traffic-guided routing helps you avoid traffic jams
  • Auto rerouting takes you to your destination if you ever miss a turn or take a detour
How easy is it to find the cheap gas… you tap the Search button and then choose Gas By Price in the list of categories. You can then select the type of gas (diesel if need be) you are looking for and TeleNav will find those best prices.
