Windows Phone in the news this week

Windows Phone 8

In Windows Phone news, Microsoft is reportedly waiving Windows Phone license fees for two Indian hardware partners, Lava and Karbonn. The news is unconfirmed but I wouldn’t be surprised if this is in a bid to drive windows Phone OS at the low-end. Good move. Let’s see what these two come up with. Perhaps if this produces good results, Microsoft might just follow this path through and through.

The latest release of WhatsApp beta tells us what features to expect in the much-anticipated update to WhatsApp: the ‘last seen’ privacy control and individual backgrounds for contacts. There is no news of when the update will hit the Windows Phone Store, but it cannot be far away anymore.
