It's been a long time coming, but it's almost here.
In 8.1 days, Microsoft and Windows Phone will unveil the all new Windows Phone 8.1.
This update brings with it so many features, its a new OS on its own.
Microsoft released the SDK a month back to developers. Thus, giving us a sneak peek of what's to come, i say sneak peek cos the features revealed in the SDK are just a peak of the iceberg.
Since the launch of Windows Phone 7.5 (Mango) more than 2 yrs ago, WinPhone Users have asked for improvements and better features to help Windows Phone compete with its Android and iOS counterparts.
You can see WinPhone Users requests HERE
As you can see, most of the features requested will be coming to WP8.1
The highlight of the Windows Phone update will undoubtedly be the Cortana personal digital assistant (it's like SIRI, but better, so I hear).
Also the Action Center (aka notifiACTION center), just like on Android devices, you swipe down the display to see your notifications.
But there are so much more to come, here is a list (courtesy: WPCENTRAL) of what's been unearthed either from the SDK or from unofficial sources:
Action Center (hands on video)
Apps + Store
Enterprise and Office
General User Experience changes
Phone + Contacts
If you read through the entire list (thanks to WPCentral), then your reaction should be WOW! that's a lot.
So the question is, did your most desired feature make it to the list? Mine did: Swype keyboard. If not, what's the one feature you want to see get supported on the WP OS?
