    Show Us Your Windows Phone


    We have some "Show Us" threads on the forum, so I thought I'd start one on the Windows phone.

    Just upgraded my Nokia Lumia 1520 to 8.1 via Developers Preview program. WP8.1 is quite a big step from WP8. Lots of added features. More categories in settings for personalization & management, personal assistant Cortana, an Action Center, and a big overhaul of IE.

    One of the personalization features is to be able to add a pic the Start Screen background which causes some tile to go transparent. I did a little tile shuffling and took a screenshot. The Start Screen is asking "How do you like me now?!!"

    Thanks, Edwin.

    Those ElitePads look to be great devices. You must work for an innovative company to buy such innovative devices.

    Yes, its always something sometimes that comes up to spend our boyz toyz money on. I had to wait about a year before I could afford to get my Lumia. It is serving me well.

    My phone contact is up at work this summer. In the past 6 years, I have had a BlackBerry, droid 2 and currently Samsung Galaxy s3. I usually like to try something different when I switch phones, so who knows, perhaps I will try a Windows phone. Will see what's available this summer.

    That's a nice work perk, Patrick. And they let you pick what you want I take it? Double WOW!

    Working construction I've had many phones starting with a bagger. I can honestly say that this is a nice device.

    Well, it means I am on call 24x7x365...so unsure if everyone would consider that a perk.

    We can pick what we want. It has to be on our Verizon plan, and it has to be under $200 with the contract our I have to pay the difference out of pocket.

    We have 1 person on BlackBerry still, handful on iPhones (becoming more popular), the rest on Droids. We don't have a Windows phone yet.
