We’ve been talking a lot about Windows Phone 8.1 the last few months, but one thing we haven’t heard about is Nokia’s version. Nokia always has a special version of ever Windows Phone update for their own Lumia devices. For GDR2 they had “Amber,” and for GDR3 there was “Lumia Black.” So what will Nokia call their update for Windows Phone 8.1?
Your first guess may be a color that starts with the letter ‘C,’ but it looks like Nokia is abandoning that pattern. Instead they will be using the color that Microsoft used as a codename for both Windows 8.1 and Windows Phone 8.1: blue. A new video posted by Nokia Russia mentions an upcoming update called “Nokia Blue.” It’s pretty obvious that this next update will be Windows Phone 8.1. The big question is what will Nokia have to offer alongside this update?
In the past they have added some extras to each update. With so much new stuff coming in Windows Phone 8.1 already is we wonder what else they can add. We’ll wait and see from Nokia and Microsoft next month. Check out the video below for the “Blue” reference towards the end (it is in Russian).
Thanks Mark and Vlad!
