They need to get rid of that ancient menu/submenu system.

 

 

19:43:52   Mephistopheles ? The new start menu is the Windows 7 start menu enhanced..
19:44:12   Mephistopheles ? Dot Matrix will cry bitter tears.

It's a ministart. I'll admit, they did a nice job to integrate future apps into the old desktop, but there's some things that just need a boot from the OS. It's not 1995 anymore.

That start menu seems a bit like walking backwards into the future, but whatever, doesn't affect me anyway as I'm pretty sure I can use the start screen and task bar as before.

What is IoT though ?

Now this I like and makes a hella lot more sense.  At least on the desktop version, mobiles should obviously just have the full screen tiles as before.  Best of both worlds.  Can finally re-arrange the f'ing start menu again without having to use the file manager (or menu replacement) to do it.. organizing 8's menu was just awful.

Has it been mentioned if WP8.1 will get a timed do no disturb? I only saw mention that you could mark people who could override DnD.

Lumia Icon will be the US flagship.

 

930 will be more of an international device.

Well then WP is now perfect :)

Timed DnD was all I was missing. Well I wouldn't mind a quick access control center but nothing I need.

Maybe that will be unveiled later, or the with bing was a feature beta lab.

Virtual buttons

Changeable shells, so you can change your phone's color.

Dual SIM has two tiles for phone and sms.

Wondering if Nokia will bring those dual sim options and sensors to the higher end phones later this year?

 

edit: Nokia just killed Apple with the 630 and 635 compared the 5c

No, he did say that he wasn't announcing a new version of Windows. So, it'll be in a later update. Most likely for Fall.
