We've reviewed Windows Phone 8.1 already, and tend to agree that Microsoft's platform is gaining ground on its competitors, and that's welcome news. In disagreement are a little over 36% of voters, who think that Google's Android L update is the most consequential. We definitely see their point -- after all, with L Google is adding not just more features, but is also revamping the way Android looks as a whole. With just shy of 10%, Apple's iOS 8 update is last on the list, at least according to voters, though we'd argue that Cupertino is about to make a pretty major step for its ecosystem: open it up. At least a little bit.We received almost 7,000 votes, and that's not a small number at all. An overwhelming majority, or about 54%, consider the last Windows Phone 8.1 update to be the most important among the three.
Like we said on Monday, even though we have a pretty good idea of what Android L and iOS 8 are about, it's still important to remember that only Windows Phone 8.1 that is officially available at this point in time. Come launch, Android L and iOS 8 will likely be even better than they are now, so don't discard them just yet.
