Nokia is offering a free Xpress-on color cover for Nokia Lumia for customers who purchased a Lumia 710 between 1/11/12 and 3/31/12.
You’ll notice that the end date for this offer hasn’t arrived yet, so if you purchase a phone before the end of the month, you too can get a free cover.
The Xpress-on cover comes in white, yellow, fuscia and cyan, and can be installed and removed easily. If you have a Lumia 710, you’ll need your original sales receipt, UPC number and barcode panel from the retail packaging, as well as your device’s IMEI number. Once you have all that, go to Nokia’s promo page to find out where to send it all, as well as to select the color of your cover. You can then use the same site to check up on the status of your order.
After Nokia spilled the beans for the white version of the Lumia 800, the company accidentally leaked an image of a Nokia Lumia 900 sporting the same white polycarbonate unibody.
Cool as Ice, Isn’t it?
The photo doesn’t reveal anything we don’t already know about the Lumia 900 – the exposed microUSB port, front-facing camera and non-curved glass. As a matter of fact Nokia have done a great job getting applying the white coat of paint, making the device look particularly stunning.
As we told you earlier, we should expect the Lumia 900 to pop up in stores mid-March. Let’s hope the white version makes it to the market in time for the planned release.

Skype’s software for making free and cheap phone calls over the Internet will be built in to some Nokia Corp. smart phones. In a move announced this week at the Mobile World Congress trade show in Barcelona, the companies said Skype will be initially integrated with Nokia’s Nseries devices, which run on Nokia’s Symbian S60 operating system. The integration will start with the N97, which will be released in June. A U.S. carrier for the phone has not been announced. The built-in Skype application will be integrated with the phone’s address book, so users can see when their Skype contacts are available and make free voice calls or send instant messages to them.
As with other Skype applications, users will also be able to pay to make voice calls through Skype to cell phone or landline numbers. The application will be able to run over both high-speed 3G cellular data networks and over Wi-Fi wireless connections to the Internet. Skype, which comes from eBay Inc., is already available as a downloadable application for a variety of operating systems and phones, including numerous Nokia products. But preloading the application “removes an inhibitor to consumers because it’s already there,” Skype’s Chief Operating Officer Scott Durchslag said.
