Microsoft and Nokia continue to test Windows Phone 8.1 internally
posted by Michael H. / Nov 12, 2013, 7:40 PM
A new leak is showing that not only is Windows Phone 8.1 still in internal testing, but oddly enough there are multiple builds of the software in testing. The evidence comes from the analytics information of the Facebook Pages Manager, which shows at least eight different builds of WP8.1 in testing. It is unclear who exactly is using the FB Pages Manager or what pages they are managing.
Windows Phone 8.1 is expected to be released in early 2014, and is expected to bring the big software changes that Windows Phone users have been hoping for, including a Notification Center, and Microsoft's voice assistant, code-named Cortana.

I bet its Nokia doing the testing, while MS sleeps on its stomach.

Know what? Im very sorry for Nokia being sold to MS :(( I really think they might have a chance just if GDR3 came earlier, and i do think that MS intentionaly delayed that Major Update to buy Nokia while they struggle before making new competitive phones that can bring them back in the game :((

Just how Google has their Nexus phones, Microsoft needs Surface phones!

Microsoft is waiting to aquire Nokia, and then they will provide great staff so they can say "as soon as we took over Nokia we manage to bring improvments to the platform and that is thank to integration of softver and hardver". They could already bring it to the market, because there are screenshots year old now with notification center and other things on WP...

It would be great if Microsoft generate more theme options 1- keep its original theme (UI) - only one home page. 2- Create more themes that allow user to have few pages like android and iOS This way, might can help user to be happier to use their phone all the time.

Patience everyone please! MS Windows phone 8 came out in 2012. Apple OIS and Android OS has been around for years now and it will take time for MS Programmers to get al the Features People want Windows smart phones to have. Windows 8.1 will certainly add more features to Windows smart phones and you wont have to buy a new Windows smart phone unless your are still using a old Windows 7.5 or 7.8 smart phone or you want a 1080P HD screen windows smart phone. Nokia for all intent and purposes is smart phone Division of Microsoft's "Devices and Services Company" there are Plans to have Windows smart phones and Windows Tablets use the same Apps with changes both's API's and ECT. This should begin happing with the Windows 8.1 upgrade. Eventually there Will Only be one Windows smart phone,Tablet , Desktop , Laptop , Apps store.
