Windows Phone 7 Search Menu

Category : WP7 · by Jul 23rd, 2012

I have recently got new Nokia Lumia 710 phone and I have setup it to Russian language, as it will be used by my mother. And what I have discovered: when you press Search hardware button it just open browser with http://www.bing.com/ instead of proper search menu with nice background, local scout and so on. Just looks like it is completely lost and missing.

Today came across a Nokia Lumia 610 advertisement in city centre and jump to the mobile phone shop to take a look at it. Apparently, very nice phone, very smooth even with outdated stats (should cost 99 pounds though).

  1. Debugging on device being offline
  2. or Use Internet with Emulator

Few days ago Microsoft revealed new update for Nokia Lumia 710 and 800. It’s adding a couple of new features, but the most critical is Internet Sharing. I believe it is actually Tango update people was waiting for almost a year.

But nothing is so easy, it not available in all countries and regions. You can check availability here. Or you can do a force update. Because it is not available for T-Mobile I have done second, I can’t just wait 🙂 And now I have Internet at home.
