Windows Phone 8.1 coming to Nokia handsets as Lumia Cyan, HTC and Samsung models are in the line too
Following yesterday's slew ofannouncements, Microsoft detailed the upcoming Windows Phone 8.1update for the previous-generation Lumia devices running WindowsPhone 8. The official word is that the Windows Phone 8.1 update forLumia phones will be branded "Lumia Cyan", and it will spread over theair to the entire Lumia range with Windows Phone 8 throughout thesummer.
The update will combine both the new OS and "brand-new Lumiafeatures" in a single package. Said features include"enhancements to the camera roll and Creative Studio, as wellas a new and improved Nokia Storyteller app, for sharing stories as avideo slideshow on social networks". Furthermore, Nokia'slatest Imaging SDK 1.2 Beta is already available at the company'sdeveloper website.
Obviously, Windows Phone 7.5 devicesare going to miss on the fun, while WP8 handsets from Microsoft'shardware partners aren't mentioned in the write-up, but don't grieveyet. US carrier Sprint confirmed in a separate statement that WP 8.1will be coming to its subscribers with HTC 8XT and Samsung ATIV S Neosmartphones, which means the OS isn't a privilege for Lumia owners.Now that would have been messy!
