Earlier today, Microsoft officially announced Windows Phone 8.1
. Chock-full of new features and updates, the new OS build takes the platform to a new, higher level. And the good news for all of you toting a Nokia Lumia Windows Phone 8 powered handset, is that you will receive
Windows Phone 8.1. Even those of you with the entry-level Nokia Lumia 520
will receive the update, which is scheduled to roll out starting this summer. Considering that all Windows Phone 8.1 models will be receiving Cortana
, that means that models like the Nokia Lumia 520 will also support Microsoft's new virtual assistant.
We wouldn't be surprised to see demand surge for low-end Lumia models over the next few days. The Nokia Lumia 520 is already the most popular Windows Phone handset
. Also slated to receive the update, and Cortana, is the T-Mobile branded version of the Lumia 520 called the Nokia Lumia 521.
For those with a Windows Phone 8 powered handset, from the Nokia Lumia 520 to the Nokia Lumia 1520
, summer can't get here soon enough. The update will be sent out OTA in a package called Lumia Cyan.
