Assassin’s Creed 3 screenshots display deer hunting in the snow

Oh look, it’s Connor, everybody’s new favorite Assassin’s Creed III star assassin. Except he’s being a major jerk, hunting deer, not guards. At the same time, that white camo of his would be incredible to use in the land of snow against deer. This screenshot (and many others) was picked up by the All Games Beta, which is where you can see the rest of the shots, at the source link. Via: All Games Beta

Nokia Lumia 900 data fix available to users now

In the case of a certain new AT&T 4G LTE device — this being the Nokia Lumia 900 — there has been data connectivity issues. Rather, that sometimes the Lumia 900 will completely drop its data connection. Thankfully, a fix has been issued as of today via Zune (for Windows) and Windows Phone Connector (for Mac).After applying the update to your new Windows Phone smartphone, you should be able to consistently use data on either HSPA, LTE, or Wi-Fi networks. Also, according to Nokia, “as a gesture of goodwill, we are offering a $100 AT&T bill credit to everyone who has already purchased a Nokia Lumia 900 or who will purchase one before April 21st.” Sounds good.

Here’s Nokia’s statement on the update:

Earlier this week, Nokia communicated about a memory management issue with the recently launched Nokia Lumia 900 at AT&T that, in some cases, was leading to a loss of data connectivity.

When this news was issued on Tuesday, Nokia had identified that a software update would be available for consumer download on or around April 16th. Today, we’d like to share with you that the update is now available. Consumers now have the opportunity to update their AT&T version Nokia Lumia 900 software through Zune and Windows Phone 7 Connector for Mac earlier than anticipated.

Consumers are still able to swap out their Lumia 900 for an updated Lumia 900 in an AT&T store if they’d prefer. And, of course, the $100 credit offer will remain in effect through Midnight PST on April 21st.

As always, we look forward to your questions and feedback.

Nook Simple Touch with GlowLight Coming Early May For $139

This is the newest e-book reader from Barnes & Noble — the Nook Simple Touch with GlowLight (official full name). The specs are the same as the previous generation’s — 6-inch E Ink Pearl touchscreen display, same internals, same size and same chassis — but is actually lighter, at 6.95 ounces vs. the older generation’s 7.48 ounces. GlowLight is simply a special patent pending technology that consists of scattering/spreading the screen’s LEDs up top with an anti-glare screen protector to uniformly spread light across the top of the Nook Simple Touch’s screen — basically meaning it can be clear, crisp, and bright in any light condition, including at night. It will launch in early May for $139, which is a very competitive price to other e-book readers, namely Amazon’s Kindle. It is available for pre-order now.

QLOCKTWO W Is A Watch That Displays The Time Using Letters

In a very chic display of modern design and the beauty of stainless steel, Biegert & Funk have created the QLOCKTWO W, a watch version of the table and wall clocks they’ve built in the past. The idea here is that within the square resides 110 letters, and when the stainless steel button is pressed, the time appears, but in words. It’s an idea I already like, very much.

It will launch this Autumn in brushed stainless steel or black, measures 35 x 35 x 7mm, with black leather or natural rubber strap, and displays the calendar day and seconds using LED technology.

Brevity Review: Crumpler Nhill Heist Backpack — Get It If You’re Awesome

These brevity reviews are all about quick and short evaluations of gadgets. So to begin swiftly, the Nhill Heist by Crumpler is a sleek backpack designed for urban ninjas, smart people, myself, corporate dudes, and the Gizmodo guys.

Leaked: Verizon’s Upcoming Incredible 4G

There’s not much to see here: the Incredible 4G looks just as usual in terms of aesthetics to all the other DROID Incredible smartphones. The only differences here should be that the Incredible 4G is being upgraded to modern-day specs. What the Incredible 4G seems to be sporting is a 4-inch qHD display, a dual-core Snapdragon processor clocked at 1.2GHz, 1GB of RAM, an 8-megapixel rear camera with zero shutter lag, a microSD slot and run Sense 4.0 atop Android 4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich, including an NFC chip, Beats Audio, and 4G LTE support. It should launch sometimes during this ornext quarter.
