Moreover it has also leaked the Bluetooth 4.0 certification for Windows Phone 8.1 which begins to give almost all official air leaks that appear in the network.

Nokia Lumia 920 and Nokia Lumia 820, The New Nokia Windows Phone 8

Through EVLeaks Twitter account have been uncovered which will be the first devices of the new stage of the Finnish Nokia by the U.S. Microsoft. They are the representatives which opens with a second generation of devices seeking market seduce a lover of iOS and Android, but not only that: these Nokia Lumia 920 and Nokia Lumia 820 are also responsible for a foothold in stores U.S., where the Finnish has, for many years, a serious and important unresolved as far as market share is concerned.

When assigned to a stratum of the sector, the Nokia Lumia 920 would become the high-end device of the new catalog, while the Nokia Lumia 820 pass to captain a new mid-range in the path of the firm as a whole journey with Microsoft. Little is known at this time of the performance of each, but through the site The Verge we could learn some technical profile points each.

Let’s start with the Nokia Lumia 920. This terminal retains a design that follows the trail started with the Nokia N9 and adopted by the Nokia Lumia 800 to continue with the Nokia Lumia 900. In this case, however, the screen grows to a size of 4.5 inches, which will be appreciated by users that parcel of going hunting after large-format panels. It is unknown whether this will be an AMOLED or Super AMOLED, and its resolution, although it is considered certain that reach 1280 x 720 pixels for Windows Phone 8 and supports.

But the most interesting thing is not there, but in the back of the Nokia Lumia 920 where they argue from The Verge find the expected PureView technology linked to Windows Phone. This would therefore be the first device to the new system matter released in the Nokia 808 with which you can get pictures with a resolution of up to 41 megapixels. However, it is unknown what capacity equip Lumia sensor 920. Judging by these pictures, the unit would be a little smaller because the eye does not highlight the hump seen in the terminal operating system with Nokia Belle.

Beyond these two details, all are unknowns about the Nokia Lumia 920-would be important to know if the model is known by the code name Nokia Phi take a two or four processor cores, but for now this point is unknown. Thus, let’s review what seems to be the Nokia Lumia 820. In this case, it seems that we are facing which was known as Nokia Arrow, a terminal whose first images were revealed this week. From The Verge claim that no PureView integrate technology. And not only that: in the images that have been revealed there is no ski legend referred to recurrent Carl Zeiss optics we’ve seen in mobile reference signature.

Unfortunately, data were not significant on the resolution that would develop the Nokia Lumia 820, which is rather more rounded design than it is to its high-end counterpart. In this case, we came across a device that would equip a screen of 4.3 inches, the same as we know it in the Nokia Lumia 900. Nor has transpired in this case a sheet to reveal the type of processor installed and the RAM or autonomy indexes reach this device. In any case, the run up to the September 5, official filing date these assumptions phones, it gets even more exciting than expected.

Configuring Microsoft Exchange 2003/2010 on iPhone and iPad

Many have recently purchased an iPhone or an IPAD, like me, and use your e-mail based on Exchange Server. If these people do not belong to the profession of computer sacrificed, then they will find that the information provided by the IT department does not work to read your email. Especially if your mailbox is located on a server based Exchange Server 2003. Let’s see what activities have to do the IT staff in order to achieve this task.

First, a number of prerequisites that the Exchange 2003 server must meet, these are:

All Exchange servers in your organization must have Service Pack 2 for Exchange. To find out if already installed on your Exchange server, open the System Manager (Start, Programs, Microsoft Exchange, System Manager). Then, expand the Servers node, click the right mouse button on the server and choose Properties. You can also see the Details section to see the Service Pack column. If you have not deployed SP2, you can download this Microsoft link:

http://www.microsoft.com/downloads/details.aspx?FamilyID=535BEF85-3096-45F8-AA43-60F1F58B3C40&displaylang=en

Make sure TCP port 443 is open (and redirected) in the firewall to the Exchange server. No need to open other ports to get the ActiveSync works only on TCP port 443. You can see from the Exchange server http://www.canyouseeme.org and you should see “success” if the port is open and forwarded properly. If you are open and forwarded it, check your router or firewall and make sure you have the settings configured properly.

– Make sure that the IPV6 option is not installed on the server, since it is known that interfere with ActiveSync protocol.

– Check the link LAN adapter to ensure that the network card you are using Exchange is at the top of the list. (Start, Run, [Enter] ncpa.cpl [press Enter], select Advanced, Advanced Settings, Connections)

Configuration of IIS Manager
– Now open the IIS Manager (Start, Programs, Administrative Tools, Internet Information Services (IIS) Manager), expand ‘Web Sites’ then ‘Default Web Site’ then right-click the appropriate virtual directory (see below) and choose Properties, then select the Directory Security tab

Exchange Virtual Directory
• Integrated & Basic Authentication =
• Default Domain = NetBIOS domain name – ejm. contoso (* no more than 15 characters)
• Realm = contoso.com
• IP Address Access Restrictions = Granted
• Secure Communications = Require SSL (Leave blank) – this option is very important.

Microsoft-Server-ActiveSync Virtual Directory
• = Basic Authentication
• Default Domain = NetBIOS domain name – ejm. contoso (* no more than 15 characters)
• Realm = NetBIOS domain name
• IP Address Access Restrictions = Granted
• Secure Communications = Require SSL and Require 128-Bit Encryption, (you have to dial)

* Replace contoso.com with the domain name of your company. To determine your domain name to open a command window (Start, Run, [Enter] cmd [press Enter]) and then type SET and press Enter. USERDOMAIN variable is the info that you should use instead of contoso.com. Often, this is not required, but there have been instances where simply adding this value, make Activesync work.

– ASP.NET must be configured to version 1.1 for all virtual directories set up. If you can not see the ASP.NET tab, that means you have installed version 1.1 installed, therefore, do not worry. If you have any other version that was not 1.1, change it to version 1.1.4322.

– Make sure that HTTP Keep-Alive checkbox is enabled. Right-click on Default Web Site and choose Properties. On the Connections tab, click the box for HTTP Keep-Alive and then click OK.

– Check the Check That Ignore Client Certificates is selected in the virtual directory IISADMPWD / Click right button on the virtual directory and choose Properties. Select the Directory Security tab, and select the Edit Secure Communications. This virtual directory may not exist, if you have not set the ability to reset password via Outlook Web Access (OWA). (If this directory does not exist, do not worry).

– Check that the Default Website IP for this set to All Unassigned and is using port 80 (Open the IIS Manager, right click on Default Web Site and choose Properties, then select the Advanced button.

– If your Default Web Site is using any port other than 80, simply will not succeed to work with the iPhone / iPad. Or change to port 80 or no longer continue configuring. You should also check that you’re not using any Host Headers on the Default Web Site, as it also interferes with ActiveSync

– Make sure the name in the SSL certificate you have installed on the Exchange server matches the FQDN that you are using ActiveSync, by ejm. Mail.Contoso.com

To do this, then right-click the Default Website in the IIS, choose Properties, click Directory Security tab, then click the View Certificate button.

If not match, re-submit the certificate from the Certification Authority, or ask your public SSL certificate provider issue you a new one (may be an additional cost).

Finally, configure the account in the iPad / iPhone.
