We've heard rumors here and there about Windows Blue, which is expected to be the next iteration of the platform.

It seems that touch improvements are in the plans for Blue...

That means there wont be a WP8.5 some where in the middle of the year? Well that sucks coz wp8 has a ton of flaws.

From this entire video, I think my favorite feature was being able to bring in any image in FreshPaint for Windows Blue and treat it as if it were a wet painting, meaning being able to alter the image itself by mixing colors, blending/blurring parts of the image, etc. Very cool.

Well they should be fixing the issues in WP8, rather than working on Blue.
