WP8.1 will gain more marketshare with
+ dual sim
+ more form factors
+ multiple user profiles
+ many more features
++ it would be a great option to dual boot any top end android handsets with WP. so the user can use android and WP on the same handset...
just hope that eflop dont become ceo otherwise m$ will be sold out in 5 billion $ in 2017.also i want no restrictions in wp os.
Raker, 15 Nov 2013bro you searched for angrybird games in application. what else did you expect.LOL, yes that is possibly the reason. If you search angry birds in 'installed' apps and not on 'store', then you are going to end up searching for 'Angry Birds Roost' which is installed by default on current Lumias and is sort of 'educational software' as he suggests... LOL!!!

Not quite! WP + Nokia are no more catching up at-least with their hardware (1520?). Yes, OS-wise they still need to improve a lot. However, with WP 8.1 that is expected by early 2014, one can expect to see a huge(!) improvement over the previous iterations of WP.
Regarding, inclusions of separate browsers - I bet that the current IE on WP is most fastest + smoothest browser out there! You need to use it to believe it. I personally am more than happy with the IE on my Lumia and don't want any unnecessary browser race to start on WP like on other OSs. Only look forward to more improvements to the IE itself.

People prefer streaming media via cloud and most of the cloud content is well supported on WP already. Netflix, Youtube, Html5, any clue? Still, WP is going to add support for the missing codes with its next iterations.

Don't let the world know that you don't know how to 'operate' your phone!
I got the lumia 920 for myself and have installed all 6 of them without any problem. When searching for term 'angry birds' on store, they get listed in the top with the author mentioned as 'Rovio Entertainment Ltd'. Really that hard?
the Android fanboys are butthurt about this news and have decided to leave a lot of junk comments like "i used to have WP device", "i used it an found it limiting", "i cant use mkv format"...etc...
try as you may you low lives - WP is on the rise and the data speaks it.
Branot89, 14 Nov 2013No apps? WTF are you talking about?there most likely talking about wp7, in the old days, everyday there is a new app just about in the store and it keeps on growing

I threw away my WP device a year back to get a Nokia N8.. ;-)

what a mess.. the same i went to google play in nexus.. searched angry birds.. i got many listed. with blind eye i downloaded first two .. it happened to be game to play not the stupid educating software like in lumia..
now tell me which is good.. u want a class on angry birds or u want game to play...
i made worst mistake of buying lumia...

why everybody talks about WP as limited software with many problems !!have you even tried to use it for couple of days or something ? it has around 175000 apps in the WP store yes not as much as andorid and apple but please i can do whatever i want with my phone it has every single important app : instagram = 6tag , facebook , viber , whatsapp , outlook , twitter , office , heredrive , heremaps , many games etc etc . why would you want 100000000 app store while you will be installing just dozen or couple of dozens apps ?
if you don't like windows phone okay don't buy it , don't come here and say ohhh it feel limited please try it first . its very smooth evey day there's something new about it , it's different for whoever got bored from using android and ios .

another irritating part is that most of applications close when u open another.. i remember running 12 applications on my n 72 with lag but all worked seperately , i think n 72 had only 128mb ram, here even with 2gb ram no multi tasking.. android is advancing too fast, windows cannot catch up.. atleast by price they should lure the customers.. google has started with moto g.. if blackberry is taken by google, i feel microsoft is doomed for ever... lumia prices should be halved to what it is now... they can pick up customers only with price bcoz in hardware and software android and iphone leads...
windows doesnot have mkv, flv, ac3 support! what is the use of 1080p, 6" screen.. with no proper media codac support i dont think any one is fool enough to buy premium devices...

Say I bought a device in early 2012, now you / M$ wants me to wait till end of 2013 or early 2014 to get these basic software for my devices. And voila - the time I get these 'cool' apps on my device, it is no longer a flagship device its now a mid to low range device!!!

I was using a Windows Mobile Device in 2006 (it was called hTC S710 aka Vox). Just because you changed the name does not make the 'product' or your 'concept' new. Just because you walked the wrong path initially (wiith WM Standard & Pro)does not take away those years.
So the truth is Android & iOS came to Mobile platform much later than M$ yet they are way ahead of M$...
i don't care about "lags" ....i want a phone that will do anything i could ask for. Don't want "limitations" because I'm giving my hard earned money to buy a phone, that can do nearly NOTHING
Nokia is best mobile manufacturer in the world. But SAmsung is most popular. I used Samsung galaxy S 2. I loved its freedom, freedom to customize since I came from iPhone 4 which was much more congested.Now, I have Samsung Galaxy S 2 and Lumia 620. Now, I m up to Lumia for everything. Samsung galaxy s 2 has already started showing problems and lags, problem of extreme heating and lags. But I m sure Nokia is not gonna show any sort of problems for few upcoming years
