Video shows Windows Phone 8.1 running on the Nokia Lumia 920
A video, apparently showing Windows Phone 8.1 running on the Nokia Lumia 920, has appeared on Sunday, showing off a number of features. Among them, there is a Speed Dial function that looks to be under the "History" section of the dialer. The settings for IE 11 are shown and the video makes it clear how quickly you can change the default search engine. Data Sense can be configured from the IE settings page, and a Password Manager is available for web sites.

Also seen on the video is the calendar, which will now have week and year views. And you can micromanage the battery on your Windows Phone 8.1 powered handset using Battery Sense. Similar to other power saving apps that you might have seen on Android phones, it appears that you can arrnge to have certain background apps shut down when battery life remaining drops under a certain pre-determined threshold.

Storage Sense lets you switch where you want your photos and music, apps and videos stored. You can choose between your phone's internal storage and a microSD card. And Windows Phone now has its own podcast app. You can choose from a list of podcasts provided by Bing, the app supports music and video. And Project My Screen allows you to wirelessly transmit what is on your screen to a television or a monitor using USB connectivity or a wireless device.

We are warned that this is not yet the final version of the update, but Windows Phone fans should surely be smiling now, anticipating another huge step up in the capability of not just their phone, but the entire platform.
