Microsoft today announced their partnership with British Airways in a trial that will demonstrate how people’s journeys can reach an entirely new level of innovation using the technologies that are available now. The trial has two main things, Digital Bag Tag and the check-in system using a NFC equipped Windows Phone device.
Digital Bag Tag is a system that will further reduce travel time and increase convenience, especially for frequent flyers. Instead of the usual paper tag that is attached to baggage before it makes its way to the airplane, a digital tag containing flight details ranging from destination to connecting flights and return journey is used.
The digital bag tag has been designed to be used time and time again, with a battery life of up to five years and could eventually do away with the need for a new paper tag every time we fly.
Once a customer is checked in, customers just need to hold their smartphone over the electronic tag, which automatically updates with a unique barcode containing their flight details and an easy-to-see view of their bag’s destination. BA believes that the new system will be quicker and more efficient than the old paper tags. It allows customers to save precious time by having their electronic tag quickly scanned at the bag drop, going straight through security to relax before catching their flight.’ British Airways is starting the trial of this system from today.

I missed this announcement from HTC in August. HTC has announced a new accessory called HTC Fetch which looks a lot like the upcoming Nokia Treasure Tag. It is also based on Bluetooth 4.0 LE and it can be used to secure your phone and belongings, last seen tracking and remote camera shutter.
If you’re tired of losing your phone or leaving it behind, the HTC Fetch is your solution. Just press the button and the sleek, compact keychain device activates your phone’s ringtone within 15 meters*. Pair it with your phone and you’ll get a warning beep if you leave it behind. If you lose both, a convenient map location feature lets you know where your HTC Fetch and phone were last together.
Nokia is also going to reveal a range of Bluetooth 4.0 based accessories for its Lumia devices at Nokia World in October. One such Bluetooth 4.0/NFC accessory is called “Treasure Tag” which will pair with Lumia Windows Phones via NFC and will come with a with a loop strap to attach it with other items. This accessory will allow Windows Phone users to track items with a special application. This special app will display the location of the sensor on a map Nokia’s LiveSight augmented reality view. The sensor can also trigger a notification sound on a phone, if it’s within range.

Following the success of “The Wedding” ad directed by Roman Coppola, Microsoft released a new ad called “The Recital” last month directed by the same Roman Coppola. Just like “The Wedding”, “The Recital” became an instant hit and has already logged more than 7.9 million views on YouTube to become the most watched Windows Phone ad on YouTube. Today, the posted the behind the scenes video of the ad which you can watch above.
And what’s not to like? “The Recital” is poignant, funny, and features cute kids dressed up as vegetables. Oh, and it also stars one crazy cool piece of technology: the Nokia Lumia 1020 with its 41-megapixel camera and Windows Phone 8.
Now, in what’s fast becoming a Windows Phone tradition, we’re releasing a new companion behind-the-scenes video showing how The Recital was made. After watching it, two things are clear: Roman Coppola certainly had no shortage of winning zingers to chose from. And, man, are those kids super cute or what? (Yes, Virginia, there is a megapixel.)
I think Microsoft should produce more such ads. What do you think?

Report: Joe Belfiore To Lead A Team Focused On Phones, Tablets And PCs Under New Org Structure At Microsoft
Microsoft announced few weeks back about its new organizational structure where there will be one team at Microsoft which will develop operating system, whether is for PCs or mobile devices or Xbox. Former Windows Phone Engineering head Terry Myerson is now heading this Operating Systems group.
ATD today reported about some details within this new organization structure at Microsoft. Terry Myerson will have at least seven direct reports in the new structure, including leaders for the development, test and program management positions plus individuals heading the company’s phone/tablet/PC, Xbox, Services, as well as another in charge of “future special projects.”
Henry Sanders will be heading development while former Windows Phone head Joe Belfiore will lead a team focused on phones, tablets and PCs. And as expected, Marc Whitten will run the Xbox team while Chris Jones will leads services team.
The whole point in the new reorganization was to unify Microsoft’s efforts under one clear path to take on vertically integrated companies like Apple.
In putting PCs, phones and tablets all together under Joe Belfiore, Microsoft is trying to make the case that there is no clear line separating a large phone from a small tablet or a tablet with a detachable keyboard from a laptop. A separate unit will look at new opportunities for Windows, such as wearable computing.
There are still some unclear information about new positions of Grant George, Antoine Leblond and Jon DeVaan, But I hope Microsoft retains all the experienced people while undergoing major reorganization.

The much rumoured re-organization of Microsoft’s internal structure has now finally happened, and it has led Terry Myerson, corporate vice president of the Windows Phone Division,to now become the head of all OS development at Microsoft.
The division is described as such:
Operating Systems Engineering Group. Terry Myerson will lead this group, and it will span all our OS work for console, to mobile device, to PC, to back-end systems. The core cloud services for the operating system will be in this group.
The re-org is meant to bring the qualities of nimbleness, decisiveness and collaborative working to Microsoft, and divides the company by function rather than fiefdom.
More can be read at Microsoft here.
Do our readers think Terry has what it takes to head both Windows and Windows Phone development? Let us know below.
“One Experience. On every device. For everything in your life”
This is the tag line of the commercials titled “Windows Everywhere” that was released by Microsoft recently. As the name suggests, Microsoft tries to emphasize the fact that same Windows with almost same UX works across devices. Also the same Microsoft apps/services like Bing, Internet Explorer, Office, Skype, Xbox Games, SkyDrive and thousands of 3rd party apps/games title are available across Windows devices.

Samsung just announced that they are holding a press event on June 20th in London for announcing new Galaxy and Ativ devices. Ativ is the Samsung’s consumer branding for Windows based devices as Galaxy is for their Android devices. Samsung Ativ S, the flagship Windows Phone 8 device went on sale from last year but received poor response from consumers due to Nokia Lumia devices which provides better experiences through exclusive apps, great hardware, etc,.
Let us wait and see what Samsung has got this time. Windows Phone version of Galaxy S4 may be? I also expect 8inch Windows RT based device and some high-end touch laptops/ultrabooks.
