In what is believed to be a world first , 15 year old South African students Gerhard de Clercq and Pieter Scholtz managed to 3D print a Nokia Lumia 820 case from a Nokia Lumia 920 using a home-built RepRap 3D printer.
The commands are sent via Bluetooth using their own app, which is able to take a 3D model and do the slicing directly on the phone.
The intend is to bring down the cost of 3D printing by reducing the need for a PC or other specialist equipment. The project won a gold medal at the Northern Gauteng Science Expo.

With the Nokia Lumia 520 now well under 10,000 INR the handset is still proving very popular in India, topping the charts at Flipkart, the popular online marketplace.
The newly reduced Nokia Lumia 920, which is now selling for 25,999 INR ($420) has also brought the handset back into the top 10, showing that the venerable handset still remains very much in demand, with the only barrier being price.
Hopefully the news bodes well for Windows Phone’s Q4, with the OS having pretty high expectations to fill at present.

Nokia is working hard at moving their excess Nokia Lumia 920 inventory, and have marked the Nokia Lumia 920 down to only 22,999 INR ($375).
While not the newest handset, the price is still unbeatable for a 32 GB device, and until the release of GDR3 devices most of the specs remain on par with current high-end Windows Phones.

The AT&T Nokia Lumia 920 is now available on AT&T’s website for only $0.99. While the device has been only $0.01 on contract via Amazon, this is the first time the handset has hit this new low on AT&T.
The handset is $439.99 off contract, which is interestingly still more than the Nokia Lumia 925 on AT&T, which costs $429.99 off contract and $99.99 on contract.
The pricing leaves AT&T customers with an interesting choice – the older, heavier handset with double the storage and wireless charging built-in, or the sleeker, lighter device for $98 more.

Nokia Lumia 920, the first flagship Windows Phone 8 device from Nokia is almost reaching its end of life. Nokia just launched Nokia Lumia 925 and Lumia 1020 as their flagship devices in various markets around the world. In India where only Lumia 925 is available for now, Lumia 920 is the second and cheaper choice when you want to go for a Nokia flagship. Nokia Lumia 920 is now available for Rs. 23,999 which I think offers a great value for the money.
For example, Nokia Lumia 625 mid-range Lumia WP8 device which was released few weeks back costs Rs.18,999. When you compare last generation Android flagship like Samsung Galaxy S3, it costs Rs.27,999 for 16GB model. Lumia 920 comes with 32GB internal memory by default.

It seems all Microsoft and Nokia’s testers have been selling on their phones, as prototype phones with beta software are turning up all over the place.
The latest is a Nokia Lumia 920, whose owner contacted WinPhoneViet complaining that it was running a “very strange version of WP8”.
It turns out the handset had an extra row of tiles, just like the Nokia Lumia 1520, indicating that this feature may not be reserved for 1080P handsets.
It also shows the battery charge level in percentage, a feature Windows Phone users have been demanding for a while now.
Another screen show shows the settings which control the start screen.
Grudge Match is an upcoming sports comedy starring Sylvester Stallone and Robert De Niro as aging boxers stepping into the ring for one last bout.
Nokia has as usual managed to secure some product placement for their Lumia handsets, as can be seen in the trailer above.
Hopefully Microsoft will keep the pressure up when they take over Nokia’s handset division next year.

If you have Nokia Pro Camera installed on your Nokia Lumia 920,925 or 928 you might want to make sure you hang on tightly to it, as users who are trying to install it at present are finding the app no longer available.
As usual the windows phone store error message is uninformative, and Nokia has now answered questions about this at Nokia’s Support Forums. It is however likely the app was pulled due to bugs, with some users complaining of a yellow hue, aggressive post-processing of pictures and video bugs, and should return to the Windows Phone Store in short order.
XS2K seems to have managed to hang on to his Nokia Lumia 920 with WP8 GD3 so far, and has uploaded this brief tour of the updated OS, showing how to close apps in the multi-tasking window, and also the screen rotation lock and Driving mode feature.

Most handsets are sold unsubsidized in India, which makes it rather hard to sell a high-end handset there.
The response over the last year has been Easy Monthly Instalment (EMI) plans by multiple vendors, including Apple, which makes more expensive handsets more affordable by spreading payments over multiple months.
After success with offering the Nokia Lumia 520 and 620 using this scheme, Nokia is now extending it to their older but better specified handsets, the Nokia Lumia 720 and 920.
With payment over 6 months, the Nokia Lumia 720 can be had for only INR 3203 ($49) per month, while the Nokia Lumia 920 will cost INR 5,649 ($86) per month.
Payment is only accepted via a credit card and acceptable ones includes Axis bank, Citibank, HDFC Bank, HSBC Bank, SBI, Standard Chartered and New Indian Assurance.

Does this scheme make Nokia’s higher end handsets more accessible to our Indian readers, or are prices still too high? Let us know below.
AAWP reports that Nokia is pushing out firmware to their handsets in UK as LTE slowly becomes available on carriers in the region.
Most Lumias heading for UK with LTE hardware had this deactivated to save battery life, as apart from EE most carriers did not support LTE. Even unbranded devices heading to UK were similarly configured.
Now as LTE starts rolling out on Vodafone, O2 and eventually 3 UK Nokia needs to push out firmware to reverse the switch, and has started with the Nokia Lumia 920 on Vodafone.
To see if your handset needs the software update check the Mobile Network page in your Settings Menu. If your highest connection speed is 4G you already have the update, otherwise you need to wait for the update notification.
Handsets which will benefit from the LTE switch include the Nokia 820, 920 and 925, with the Nokia Lumia 625 presumably already appropriately configured.
