Microsoft's Windows 10 Mobile flagships have been available in Australia for some time - but the country's largest carrier has finally said that it will begin offering both devices from next week.
Australia's largest telecom Telstra has hired ex-Nokia CEO Stephen Elop. Stephen Elop rose to prominence when he became CEO of Nokia, also becoming head of Microsoft's Devices Group.
On Sunday, Telstra lifted data caps for the entire day for all of its mobile users, and as expected, the network saw increased usage, doubling any normal day of the week, as users took advantage.
When Telstra Australia users were hit with severe outages on Tuesday, the company suggested that they might compensate with free data, this is exactly what they have done for Valentine's Day.
A major outage to the Australia's largest mobile network, Telstra, has left millions of customers without access to phone and data service. Currently, the service is still sporadically having issues.
Microsoft has highlighted examples of its products driving new retail experiences, including the 'Diji Touch' vending machine with a 40-inch touchscreen, powered by Windows 10, Kinect and Azure IoT.
The Lumia 532 was one of Microsoft's most affordable smartphones ever when it debuted in January - but it's currently available in Australia at the unbelievably low price of just $29 AUD (~$20 USD).
Less than five months after its announcement, prices are already falling on one of Microsoft's most affordable smartphones - the Lumia 532, which will be available for just $39 off-contract this week.
NBN Co has renegotiated its deal with Telstra and Optus allowing it to take ownership of the current copper and HFC networks during its roll out of the National Broadband Network in Australia.
Microsoft's new entry-level Windows Phone, the Lumia 530, is now even more affordable in Australia, where it is available on Telstra for just $39.50, along with an extra handset cover free of charge.
The Windows RT 8.1 based Nokia Lumia 2520 tablet will finally be hitting the Australian shores and at an exorbitant price, nearly 8 months since its global launch at Nokia World in October 2013.
Australian network Telstra has cancelled pre-orders for Nokia's flagship Lumia 1020 citing "Nokia software issues", but hopes that its customers will accept a free Lumia 520 by way of apology.
There's good news for Windows Phone users in Australia. Telstra says that tomorrow it will start pushing out the GDR2 + Amber update for Lumia 920 devices. Hopefully other devices will follow soon.
If you have been wondering when GDR2 was going to land for Windows Phone users, it looks like July might be the release window that will bring several new features to the Windows Phone platform.
The next update for Windows Phone 8, GDR2, is expected to begin testing by wireless service providers in a matter of weeks before being released to users of Microsoft's smartphone operating system.
Telstra has confirmed the Windows Phone 7.8 update will be coming by the end of January. The Lumia 800 will be the first device to get it with other phones being scheduled for the following months.
We reported yesterday that all over the world stores are running out of Lumia 920s due to high demand. Telstra has released a bit more info, making us cautiously optimistic regarding the Lumia launch.
It seems strong enthusiasm for Nokia's Lumia 920 has already left some folks without stock. Both Telstra in Australia and Clove in the UK report they are either sold out or on the way.
We recently received a tip from a forum member that suggests Australian phone carrier Telstra will launch the Nokia Lumia 920 on November 5th to coincide with the AT&T launch on November 4th
