Could the Nokia 630 Bring Windows Back Into My Pocket?

For my work phone I use the mid-range Samsung Galaxy S Duos 2 (GT-7582) it's dual-SIM. My personal phone is an iPhone 5S

I was listening to Windows Weekly 356 (2014 Build Dev Conference episode). One of the hosts mentioned the upcoming Nokia 630 phone.

And I am really intrigued. A dual-SIM Windows Phone! Long time Beanster Blog readers know that I had been a Windows Mobile user in the early years on the smartphone revolution.

I have been itching to jump back into the Windows Phone platform (my last device finally died this year, the palm Treo Pro) but I need a dual-SIM device. This Nokia may be my way in!

I am the un-official IT guy at work. Since Google Apps switched to the paid model. I opted to use Microsoft's free custom email hosting. Been using it for about seven months and I have no complaints. So aside from dual-SIM my work device needs to have Exchange support, I'm pretty sure a Microsoft product would have good Exchange, I need multiple accounts though. Not sure if WindowsPhone supports multiple exchange accounts -- it should!

Regarding apps, I keep them on the minimum with my work phone so it's not really an issue.

Tips & Tricks|Orientation Aware Backgrounds

I just wanted to share some stuff I learned over at xda-dev's forum today.
Anyway as the title states this is about today themes and Orientation Aware Backgrounds. It's really quite simple
All you need is 2 images [3 if you want to change the Start Menu image as well] of the proper resolution.

tdywater_240_320.gif [Portrait Image] = 240 x 320 image
stwater [Start Menu Image] = 190 x 290 image
tdywater_640_480.gif [Landscape Image] = 640 x 480 image
tdywater_480_640.gif [Portrait Image] = 480 x 640 image
stwater [Start Menu Image] = 399 x 586 image
What you do is copy the files to \Windows directory and viola! Orientation Aware Backgrounds!
Notes: The theme's default images will be used once you switch themes. So you would need to copy the files back again to \Windows dir for it to work again, what I do is I have placed Wallpaper sets in ZIP files on my Storage Card so I can change and change as desired.…
