Whilst this is something you’d normally have taken for granted, the way things are going on at Microsoft, you can’t assume they’ll do the obvious. http://www.pocket-lint.com/news/50167/windows-phone-8-upgrades-coming-stealth Pocket-lint reports that Microsoft is working behind the scenes on WP8.5. We won’t hear about it though until it’s pretty much ready. Perhaps that will mean no developer preview […]
