Windows Phone 8.1 video hands-on leaks, with walkthrough of the new features
Microsoft sending out the Windows Phone 8.1 SDK to developers was like a command to start leaking the new features, despite any NDA agreements signed.
Yesterday we saw a screenshot collage revealing plethora of new WP 8.1 features that are coming with the newest version of Windows Phone, such as apps to memory card, messaging app choices, VPN support, more detailed reports for the battery draw of individual applications, and the ability to keep an app active after pressing the Back key, like on Android and iOS, instead of shutting it down. We also learned that there will be new resolutions supported - from the lowly nHD, to the breathtaking Quad HD (1440x2560 pixels) - on future WP devices.
Now the ultimate in leak land has popped up - a video walkthrough of the new Windows Phone 8.1 update - showing in flesh and blood the changes we have only heard talked about, or appearing in screenshots. Check it out below, and treat your Lumias patiently until April arrives with the official unveiling.
