Microsoft adds Windows Phone 8.1 to the platform update history page

Windows Phone 8.1 is just around the corner as the community waits for its release, unless you reside in Finland where update magic is well under way with the the Lumia Cyan firmware already rolling out. Microsoft has recently added the major platform update to the history page on the Windows Phone website, sitting on top of the three Windows Phone 8 updates.

This move doesn't mean much apart from Microsoft now publicly lists this upgrade as a "past update" for the platform, leading us to believe the wait is almost over for everyone. As always, consumers will have to wait for the update to pass through both manufacturers and mobile operators. Who's excited for Windows Phone 8.1 rolling out or have you all been enjoying the new functionality by using the Developer Preview?
