We've heard of the past successes of the Windows Phone App Studio, but today Microsoft is announcing an update. The number 1 question has apparently been; what about Windows apps? Folks asking that need worry no longer and say hello to the unified Windows App Studio.

The beta release is available to download from today and allows you the ability to create a universal project resulting in both Windows Phone and Windows apps in the same session. Pretty nifty.

In this busy, busy week in tech, Apple dropped the latest update to OS X, 10.9 Mavericks, and with it some apps have started to experience problems. One of those, at least on my Mac, is Nokia Photo Transfer. It seems to be pretty widespread, with problems detailed in the Nokia support forums, as well as in the Windows Phone Central forums. The good news; there is an easy fix.

Nokia World 2013 may be over, but since I've just found this (totally forgotten about) shot from the event in Abu Dhabi, I figured it's worth showing. Sat side by side, and tethered to a wall, is the new Nokia Lumia 1320 and the Lumia 1520. And, from the front, it's tough to believe that one of these costs around $400 less than the other one. Both have 6-inch displays, and even with the lower resolution on the 1320, it isn't disappointing to look at.

While Lumia most definitely stole the show at this weeks Nokia World 2013 event in Abu Dhabi, there was more to see than just Windows 8.1 and Windows Phone devices.

Hands on with the Nokia Lumia 2520 keyboard case

Announced today alongside the Nokia Lumia 2520 at Nokia World 2013, is this, the companion keyboard case. Nokia didn't go down the touch-cover style route with the 2520, instead opting to produce a full tactile keyboard with gesture trackpad. It's also a case, protecting the tablet front and back, and it's got some additional juice via the on-board battery, that Nokia claims is good for an extra 5 hours battery life for the tablet. And round the back, there's not one but two USB ports.
