wpcentral forum

We're all excited and buzzing to see exactly what will be included in the Windows Phone 8.1 update. If anything from today's reporting is to go by, we're in for a major update, which should address the complaints from both Windows Phone owners and the general public who have steered clear of the mobile platform.

Since the update isn't far off, we've set up a new forum for discussion to take place covering the Windows Phone 8.1 update.

Today we're back with a true From the Forums, so what's been happening in our community?

August is closing to an end, and we're all gearing up for the imminent rumours, announcements and discussion that will take place over the next number of weeks in the lead up to Windows Phone 8. As we prepare for a hopefully eventful September, let's take a quick look at popular threads from the weekend on the Windows Phone Central forums.

With a heavier emphasis on Microsoft's Live products (as well as Xbox) in Windows Phone 7, it's only right that we expand our forums which have been with us throughout the WinMob days to cater for all the features. We're pleased to announce a new category titled Microsoft Extras!

In this category, one will find the following forums:

    • Xbox
    • Zune
    • SkyDrive
    • Windows Live

    If you haven't already done so, check out the official WPCentral community and discuss the platform you enjoy using in your day-to-day life. To get into the swing of things and engage in discussion with our active community, head on over to our forum.
