Good, while other are working on a lot of other things, ms is playing catch up. I'd be much happier if they release everything they have cooking with WP8.1 and not holdout for whatever is coming after that. Notification center is gonna look really good here if they use a transparent screen with the wallpaper in the back.

I've been looking hard at Windows Phone for the past couple of months mainly because I hate how Android is designed. No coherent guidelines, heck, even Google doesn't follow their own guidelines (Most Google apps have a gray on touch-highlight selection on KitKat but when you touch menu button on Google now, it's bright blue, wtf!). All of their own apps look so different, you'd be forgiven for thinking you were using a different OS every time you opened an app (Google+, Google Now, and GMail has swipe to refresh YouTube doesn't). Same goes for third party apps.. Windows Phone, on the other hand, features such beautiful minimalistic design.. I really like how the third party apps all have a similar look and I love the third party apps on WP. I know how people keep whining about apps on Windows Phone. But if they look deeper, they'll find that unofficial apps (particularly those made by Rudy) are leaps and bounds better than the official ones on Android. This isn't supposed to attack Android. I am sorry if I offended any Android user. I love Android because of its flexibility and openness but its design isn't very good.

Its a screen shot of the settings page and its not fake.

Confimed by Verge's Tom Warren who leaked all the new features 2 days ago.

too late (and limited customization too). Android had it for years and It can be done by an app.
Slow update, M$, too slow...
I can make shortcuts of any apps & reply email in notification in android. How about WP?

I can just tap the live tile and do the same thing. I can shortcut any app, contact, web page, etc. to my home screen as well. The notification center on android is a mess, hopefully WP's notification center isn't... or that it has the option to turn it off.

We can tell you have never touched a windows phone.

Notification is required for droid os, because there is no live tiles, background tasks are a mess imo, and the menu system is so tacked together OEMs label everything differently and you must have a 'shortcut' to cut out all the 'crap'. I have to tech these things allllllllllll day, i hate the menu layout.

Windows phone, i can make anything a live tile and get updates, I can have 28 instant notifications right on my home screen at first glance, and unlimited by using the home screen right. Right now i have 12 notification tiles on my screen with more with a simple scroll.

I can reply to any email by, one tap live tile, next tap reply. Same thing as you tapping your notification center and replying. 2 taps each...

They are doing this because people are so used to notification center, they cant live without it....yet its old and personally imo out dated.

Just do the developer update then. I had GDR3 on my 1020 before it even launched.

MS shows you how to get the GDR3 before any carrier gets it. I have had it for months now.

I hate my carrier for abandoning my phone. There were updates availible but they didn't push them. It is really that much trouble to push updates that are already availible to them?
