Nokia employee XXXXX has posted the above image to deviant art with the caption:
“Quite a trip at Redmond. There is something I am not allowed to talk but allowed to tease. It is not confirmed in case you make a guess (either right or wrong , I won’t answer ). That is what tease meant to be”
XXXXX works for Nokia in Software Quality Assurance for Windows Phone 8, and the picture hints at notifications being centralized into a notification centre.
We already know that Microsoft has said that they intended to implement a notification centre, but ran out of time. We are also expecting a future update named Apollo + to add features such as VPN.
Would our readers be happy with a Start-screen based notification centre (ie one you have to return to the Start screen and then needed to swipe to) or is a draw down one like on iOS and Android or Gesture based one like on Blackberry 10 essential? Let us know below.
Footfall, who last leaked pictures of the HTC Accord, has tweeted this interesting but in fact predictable little rumour.
He is claiming at Microsoft will release a Windows Phone 8 update in Q1 2013 which will be called Apollo +. He did not reveal more, but the update will presumably address the bugs noticed by some recently.
An Spring update after a Fall release has in fact been the usual pattern for the Windows Phone division, although the Apollo + moniker suggests we may also see some new features – maybe that delayed Notification Centre?
The Verge reports the update may bring always-on WIFI and finally the VPN support some business and Chinese users have been craving.
