Homebrew: Accelerometer Disabler by windowsphonehacker released

Admittedly, one of the more popular features for Windows Phone is the speed of the accelerometer in a variety of tasks. But, often the end user loses some control of enabling or disabling accelerometer that has been seen on a plethora of Android devices and on Windows Mobile. To be frank, there are times where you don’t really want to use the accelerometer isn’t it? Well, windowsphonehacker may have the xap just for you.

Accelerometer disabler does just what the name implies. It disables the accelerometer until the phone is rebooted. The tool is supported for Sammy’s 1st generation Windows Phones and LG’s Windows Phone that have interop unlock. Now, the freedom to disable accelerometer is not supported by HTC, Nokia, or Dell devices, but it is a good step in the right direction so users can have fundamental control over their phone.

Bloomberg: 1.3 million estimated Nokia Lumias shipped in 2011

Windows Phone always has some issues when it comes to numbers; often with Microsoft deferring the numbers questions to the OEMs who also seem mum about total Windows Phone handsets sold. So it comes as very little shock that analysts have to assume any Windows Phone numbers, much to our joy and chagrin.

After polling 22 analysts, Bloomberg has concluded that the the amount of estimated Windows Phones shipped to retailers and carriers ranged between 800,000 to 2 million devices; with an average of 1.3 million devices estimated to be shipped. The big question to be is asked is do we believe the estimated sales or do we wait for the official sales figures Nokia releases quarterly during their investor’s meeting? We think you should wait for the official news. But what do you think: 800,00 – 2 million devices shipped is an accurate number?
