    While they can't add a new LED light, they can make the current windows phone logo button blink or something. This is actually a widely requested feature. It would only require firmware update and it would work on all current devices. Microsoft or Nokia would have to do this. And now that Microsoft in buying Nokia, it will be Microsoft who would do it. I have high hopes for WP 8.1 . It should be a good sizable update.
    I like that option. It was a good update for Palm when the Gesture Light started to bilk notifications

    "Sorry buddy" but I'm not sure how "we're all sort of correct" because you stated it never supported it, and it did.
    Are you serious?

    Missed calls are entirely different than emails, messages and tons of other notifications that a notification LED is used for.

    Sorry buddy for not being technical and semantical enough for you

    I am serious. Every time I said I remembered an HTC WP7 device having a blinking indicator for missed calls, and maybe missed text messages, you said "no, sorry buddy, etc"

    Never did you say "maybe for missed calls, but not for other notifications". So yeah, I am serious.

    ...and just to avoid the back and forth, I won't address this with you again. You can have the last word, last sentence, last whatever.

    Sorry, you're probably confusing the light with another device.
    Nope my HTC Mozart 7 had a light, it would flash green when i had a missed call, but was missed calls only and not messages.

    The Trophy, like other HTC devices, also has the notification light at top that alternates between green/red when the device is over heating. So that, along with missed calls, & low battery are the only ways that the notification light is used.

    The question is, they would have to do it, but would they do it?

    I think it would be great if WP8 devices can use the windows button as a notification led. Still only white though, but if they add different blinking profiles you would be able to distinguish calls and messages etc.

    If you have a Nokia Lumia, you will get notification on the Glance screen on the next update.
    If you have a non-Nokia Windows Phone, I hope Microsoft is kind enough to give Glance to other Windows Phones since Microsoft owns Nokia now
