Potential Leaked Image of Windows Phone 8.1 Appears
If you’re an aficionado of Microsoft’s latest mobile OS, you are more than likely waiting on the edge of your seat for Windows Phone 8.1 Blue. To whet your appetite further, XDA Forum Member when im gone “found” an SD card with a blurrycam image of what appears to be Windows Phone 8.1 Blue running on a Nokia Lumia 620. From his original post:
i found a SD Card and this photo was in it
who can confirm if this is wp8.1 or GDR3 ??
If you look closely, you’ll see an interesting asterisk in the status bar and mail tile, corresponding with rumors of a notification center in 8.1. Unfortunately though, when im gone hasn’t been able to recover any additional data. And the EXIF data has been wiped from the JPG image. Furthermore, it’s incredibly easy to fake a shot like this. However, given what we’ve seen in the GDR3 leak, anything’s possible.
Head over to the original thread to get in on the discussion and share your opinions.

Bezels have been getting smaller and smaller as the years go by, and while devices from 2011 needed to trim some fat, there is no absolute rule that says that smaller bezels, after a happy medium, are beneficial to a phone. Part of this is that, with today’s current smartphone paradigms, an absolute lack of bezels does not produce an inherently better user experience. With each technological advancement come limitations and compromises of some sort, and bezels are not...
