Great gift ideas for Dad

Celebrate Father’s Day this Sunday in the U.S., UK, India, and many other countries with Lumia 640 XL and more.

No matter whether you call him father, dad, or pops, shopping for the man who raised you can be a challenge.

But there’s one thing that all dads love and that’s tech. And beer. OK, those are two things.

We can’t help you with the beer, but your friends at Conversations have the hook-up on Lumia goodies that’ll bring a smile to your father’s face.

Microsoft Lumia 640 XLLumia-640XL-SSIM-4G

Big guys need big phones. Dad will love the Lumia 640 XL’s generous 5.7-inch ClearBlack display and 13-megapixel main camera—perfect for taking stunning family photos.

The Lumia 640 XL will be available in the U.S. through AT&T beginning on June 26.

Hoop by Coloud headphones


Active dads will appreciate how Hoop by Coloud headphones are designed to handle sweaty workouts.

He’ll never miss a beat with the Hoop’s adjustable support loop that keeps earpieces from slipping out of his ears as they deliver rich, beautiful sound. The built-in microphone will help him stay connected to business and family while staying fit.

ESPN (free)

It’s a free app, but it’s the thought that counts, right? The all-new ESPN app has been given a makeover for Windows Phone 8.1, allowing for more customization than ever before.

Dad can check scores and highlights for all major sports, such as MLB, NFL, NBA, MLS, and college football and basketball. The On-Air tab also delivers live access to ESPN networks through WatchESPN on his Lumia (with a cable subscription).

Untappd (free)

Okay, we lied—we CAN help you with beer. The free Untappd app will help Dad find nearby craft beers and bars, see what beers are trending, and even see what his buddies are drinking through the app’s check-in network.

Netflix (free)

Pop for a Netflix membership and give Dad unlimited TV shows and movies to watch on his Lumia. He can browse from a growing selection of thousands of titles and binge-watch all day long. (“House of Cards” and “Orange is the New Black” are excellent series available only on Netflix…just sayin’.)
