Depending on your location, we’re a little over a week away from the Xbox One launching around the world. November 22nd marks the day when we’ll finally get our hands on Microsoft’s next-generation gaming console (in addition to the Lumia 1520 and Lumia 2520). While Microsoft is quick to tout the all-in-one entertainment possibilities on the Xbox One, we want to know what games you’re most excited about in this week’s poll.

Polls are fun. They’re a good way to quickly get a feel for how the Windows Phone community feels on a particular topic. We just learned that the Nokia Lumia 1520 becomes available on November 22nd here in the United States. We also just learned from a close source that the yellow Lumia 1520 might be scarce. So we’re curious, what color are you getting?

It was two weeks ago in Abu Dhabi at Nokia World 2013 that we finally saw the next flagship Windows Phone device – the Lumia 1520.

It’s powered by a Snapdragon 800, which is a 2.2GHz quad-core processor that will help you process those photos from the 20MP sensor with ease. Are you planning on getting one? Take our poll at let us know.

Yesterday was a blizzard of news from Microsoft. Not only did they finally take the wraps off of their third update of the year for Windows Phone 8 (aka ‘GDR3’), but they had their own “one more thing…” moment where they announced the Preview for Developers Program. That program, which is open to anyone who takes a moment to register, allows you to download over-the-air Update 3 right to your device.

We walked you through the process and showed you what’s new in Update 3. So the question is simple: How many of you have already jumped on board with Update 3?

Poll time! Earlier this morning Microsoft announced their brand new Developer Preview Program. You can think of it as the enthusiast program that was announced a few blue moons ago. Shortly after that, any registered developers could download GDR3 to their Windows Phone 8 devices. It’s been a busy day and a lot of you are now running GDR3 on your handset. What’s your favorite new feature? Take the poll below to answer.

Today, Microsoft unveiled the follow up to last year’s Surface models with the Surface Pro 2 and Surface 2. The latter used to be called Surface RT, but Microsoft has since dropped that from the name, streamlining things for consumers.

The Surface Pro 2 starts at $899 while the Surface 2 is much cheaper at $449. The specs are listed below before you answer the big question: Are you going to get one? Or are you waiting for Nokia’s supposed RT tablet, the Lumia 2520?

Results of the largest mobile developer study, spanning 115 countries and 6,000 participating developers has shown that more developers plan to start developing apps and games for Windows Phone than any competing platform. That may sound like something to celebrate, but we have to remember that 71 percent of developers who took part in the study already have work published for Android and 56 percent on iOS. That said, it's positive they're showing interest in Microsoft's mobile OS.

Yesterday, Microsoft took the wraps off of the much discussed Windows 8.1 “preview edition” for your current Surface Pro, 32 or 64 bit system. The process was supposed to be simple, with a downloaded file and a trip to the Store. Indeed, the installation was easy, but the line for the server was getting hammered on early in the day.

Here at mobile HQ for Windows Phone Central, myself and Sam Sabri updated no less than five devices to Windows 8.1, because hey, we’re excited. From the Acer R7, to the little 8-inch Iconia to two Surface Pros we plowed through the process. (Build attendees were given USB flash drivers with the installation files onboard, making the process super simple).

Hopefully you watched our Live Blog of Microsoft’s “next generation” Xbox One announcement today, if not, just check out our continuing coverage here.  

Assuming you did, what do you think? The bar was set a bit low with Sony’s PlayStation 4 announcement with many in the industry smirking that all Microsoft had to do was show their new console. But jokes aside, did Microsoft impress you? Is the Xbox ONE what you hoped it would be and do you think it’ll succeed?

Okay folks, it's time for another quicky reader poll! Today's topic: the Lumia 925.

We can already tell this one is causing some divisions, with those thinking its not a worthy Lumia 920 upgrade (even though it's not positioned as such) and those who finally have a reason to get a flagship Nokia (or even the opportunity, hello T-Mobile!).

Which camp do you fall into: hit or miss? Take the poll and let your voice be heard.

Do you like the new Nokia Lumia 925?

Nokia ran a poll on its blog last week, asking consumers which of the different lock screen features they valued most. Whether it's the notifications, the background images or locking the Windows Phone with a passcode, visitors had the selection of three to choose from. The team has now published the results, which aren't entirely surprising.

As many of our readers know, HTC also manufactures Windows Phones. We've already taken a quick look at both the specifications of the HTC One and camera capabilities, comparing it to Windows Phone 8 hardware.

We had our say, now you have yours. The question is a bit loaded for a Windows Phone site, after all we’re guessing some of you are fans of Microsoft’s OS, but it is a legitimate question.

Windows Phone 8 has not set the world afire despite positive reviews and word of mouth. Is that because it’s not good enough or because Android and iOS are just too far ahead?

If it’s the former, does BlackBerry 10 fill that roll? If it’s the latter does BlackBerry even have a chance?

Click below for a few polls on the matter. Moible? Just head to m.wpcentral.com/polls-blackberry-10 to take them on your phone.
