A published report in Monday should immediately zap the cold air out of Windows Phone users. The report says that Microsoft is getting closer to pushing out Windows Phone 8.1 which brings some new (at least to the platform) goodies with it. First of all, virtual personal assistant Cortana will be on board. A Nokia Lumia 920 purchased earlier this year with an early build of Windows Phone 8.1 had revealed plans for this application back in September...

Microsoft is so out of touch. Nobody cares about a virtual voice assistant. Nobody uses siri and nobody wants to talk to their phone. The end of Windows phone is coming.

4-5 months later... Why so late? Till then other OSs would bring more new features.

Look I get everyone's argument... Better late than never VS Better never late. Does slow and steady win the race? Perhaps.

In the end (since this is a WP article): You are happy with Windows Phone at this point in time (designate variable "t") OR You are not. Either you will be happy with WP 8.1 when it is announced ("T+n") OR you won't be.

The article states that an OS is maturing. That's a good thing. If you're not happy with the rate at which it's maturing, that's OK too.
