Flagships Lumia 940 and Lumia 940 XL Rumored to get 3GB RAM, 20 MP rear Camera, USB Type C Connectors

Leaving aside for a moment all the craziness following the Google I/O conference, it’s time to have a look at how are things looking for Microsoft, who is trying hard to increase the marketshare of its mobile operating system. The upcoming Windows 10 Mobile will probably help with that but Microsoft also needs some impressive devices to convince customers to buy them.

And it seems that Microsoft plans to come up with some impressive specs and features in its upcoming smartphone, rumored to be the Lumia 940 and Lumia 940 XL. Back in March, we reported on a rumor which was suggesting that they could get an iris scanner for niometric authentication along with support for a docking station. Now we’ve got some fresh intel which further suggests the phones are indeed going to get some impressive features.

According to a fresh report coming from, the upcoming Lumia 940/940 XL duo is said to come with some nice specs, such as a 3GB RAM32GB of internal storage, and a 20 MP rear camera. All these are common specs, but the XL version will get a bigger 3300mAh battery as opposed to a 3000mAh battery on the 940 one, along with a slightly bigger 5.7-inch display (2560×1440). Snapdragon 808 is also rumored for the bigger model, but there’s no news yet with regards to the 5.2-inch version.

Another recent report talks about a new photo on Twitter which appears to show a display piece from an unknown Lumia device. There seem to be some curved edges on the screen and there’s a chance that this new technology could make it into the new flagship smartphones. Furthermore, the Lumia 940 could also get a USB Type C connector, according to German site, which may be used for the Continuity feature to allow users to switch between touch mode and desktop mode.

Microsoft really needs to put on the market some amazing devices if it wants to steal some marketshare from iOS and Android. And if these two new handsets are going to feature all these new features that we’ve mentioned in the post, then yes, it’s going to be one hell of a fight.

How to Get SMS Alerts for Gmail via Twitter

How do you get SMS notifications on your mobile phone for important emails in your Gmail? Google doesn’t support text notifications for their email service but Twitter does. If we can figure out a way to connect our Twitter and Gmail accounts, the Gmail notifications can arrive as text on our mobile via Twitter. Let me explain:Twitter allows you to follow any @user via a simple SMS. They provide short codes for all countries (see list) and if you text FOLLOW to this shortcode following by the  username, any tweets from that user will arrive in your phone as text notifications. For instance, if you are in the US, you can tweet FOLLOW labnol to 40404 to get my tweets as text messages. Similarly, users in India can text FOLLOW labnol to 9248948837 to get the tweets via SMS.The short code service of Twitter can act as a Gmail SMS notifier. You create a new Twitter account, set the privacy to private and this account will send a tweet when you get a new email in Gmail. Follow this account …

Instagram Story links get 15-25% swipe-through rates for brands, publishers

Instagram may arrived late as a traffic source for brands and publishers, but it’s already showing early signs of success, driving new visitors to their sites and even outperforming its parent company, Facebook.For years brands, publishers and other have tried to push people from the Facebook-owned photo-and-video-sharing app to their sites. Outside of ads and excepting a recent test with some retailers, Instagram didn’t offer much help to companies looking to use it to drive traffic. So they had to find workarounds. They put links in their Instagram bios. They scrawled short-code URLs onto their pictures.
