Does Your Phone Know Spanish?

Now language translation apps for smartphones can do much, much more than that old plastic device with the rubbery buttons and one-line display. Many of them let you speak or type a question in English and have that instantly translated into a foreign tongue, which the app can speak out loud or display on the phone’s screen. A response from a local can be translated right back into English for you. A single app may include the ability to translate dozens of languages—more than a backpack full of dictionaries.

Windows Phone Still Struggles to Find Its Niche as a Mainstream Operating System

“Verizon Wireless will be selling multiple Windows Phone 8 devices in the fourth quarter, CNET has learned.

Getting a new Windows Phone on to Verizon is important because it’s the nation’s largest wireless carrier, opening up a potentially large base customers to the platform. It would be an important step toward Microsoft’s goal of turning Windows Phone into a mainstream operating system, as opposed to the niche player that it is now. Right now, the only Windows Phone in Verizon’s lineup is the aging HTC Trophy.”
