Windows Phone 8 Update

Microsoft/Nokia rolled out an update for the Lumia 920 today. Some of the improvements are

Update 8.0.10211.204

  • Messaging improvements. A great messaging experience is now even better. You can now add multiple recipients at the same time when you send a text message and automatically save unsent text messages as drafts. You can even edit received text messages before you forward them.
  • Text replies to incoming calls. Can't take a call? Now you can send a prewritten text reply to a caller directly from the call answer screen. It's a nice way to let people know that you're not ignoring them.
  • Internet Explorer improvements. You can now change your settings to prevent pictures from downloading automatically—an easy way to help keep data usage low. You can also delete selected sites from your browsing history and leave the rest intact.
  • Wi-Fi connectivity. Got a favorite Wi-Fi network? Windows Phone 8 will now prioritize Wi-Fi connections based on your connection history.
  • Other improvements. Includes many other improvements to Windows Phone.
Also the SW for the Nokia Lumia 920 camera has been improved so expect better pics.

Samsung ATIV S vs Nokia Lumia 920

"Good news for Microsoft (MSFT): Launching Windows Phone 8 seems to be helping the company create a real mobile app ecosystem. Todd Brix, the senior director of Microsoft’s Windows Phone Apps Team, announced on Twitter over the weekend that his company had seen a “100%+ increase in WP developer app revenues & downloads since WP8 launch in November.” Needless to say, this claim doesn’t mean too much without actual numbers to go with it since Windows Phone had such a low adoption rate before Microsoft’s grand Windows Phone 8 launch this fall. All the same, Microsoft must be happy that its efforts are leading to an increase in revenues for its developers, which could certainly lead to increased interest in developing for the platform."
