    Yesterday, The verge reported that microsoft is going to reveal Windows phone 9.0 on 30th September. And also hinted that we can expect multi windows on screen to work more like windows 8.1.
    Do you guys have remember Chrisitian del Rosario? He published a video about concept of windows phone 8.1/9.0. In mid of 2013. If, no then you can watch it here. Now the discussion is that microsoft accepted this concept for windows phone 8.1 and we can use features like on screen navigation bar, live folders and more tiles as presented in this video. So, we can expect more features from this concept like multi windows, swipe, and all. So, are you excited to have all these features?

    Wasn't it said that this would be Windows 9, that is the x86/64 version, not Windows PHONE? Because they say that MS is building a separate version for Windows Phone and Windows RT.

    would really like to see interactive notifications both on toasts and the notification center, and if possible add more features to the live tile

    Yeah we need interactive notifications and the screen splitting in the video is perfect.

    looks thin.. Microsoft has habit of breaking WM6, WM6.5, WP7.. so I don't think wp8 would be different. I am holding my purchase for Lumia 1520 just due to this reason.

    because of wp7 to wp8 upgrade issues... And Bit Locker issue for Lumia DP devices cannot be solved. Only NSRT helps...

    WP8 OR WP8.1 will not be upgradable to WP9 100% SURE... IT MUST BE HAPPENING... #Business

    Yup, because microsoft never allow wp7 users to update wp8. The same thing will happen.

    Microsoft promised that they will not do a wp7 to wp8 scenario again.... They gave wp7 users a big update named wp 7.8..... And wp8 owners also got a big update wp8.1.... Therefore as they promised they will give threshold update to wp8.1 users... Otherwise an ***** will only trust msft... Coz all wp9 devices will only get one big update and all the users will again be left alone.... And msft share will remain 1-2% only...

    If my 1020 isn't upgradeable to 9.0, I will take my 3 Lumias back to the new bigger iPhone. If they say its hardware issue, then admit how stupid it was to not demands higher specs from manufacturers... MSFT better wise up fast

    do know that 8.1 is essentially 9, you're more asking for a WP10

    but eh they'll call it 9

    What Microsoft said was "WP8 is Upgradable" i.e. it got several updates and where wp7 received 7.5 and 7.8
    So I clearly state "WP8 or WP 8.1 will not be updated to WP9" and they say "Due to certain hardware or kernal limitations WP 8.x won't be upgradeable to WP9"

    IM SO SURE THAT WINDOWS PHONE 8 CAN UPGRADE TO WINDOWS PHONE 9
    why?
    if windows phone 8 cant upgrade to windows phone 9, then it would be a big drop of windows phone user, and microsoft will lose lots of customer.
    currently, all OEM (htc for example) are joining the windows phone platform. if microsoft made it "specialized" OS like how wp7 to wp8 do, then OEM will stop supporting windows phone

    all i can say that nokia lumia 520 will stuck at windows phone 10, not 9
    while nokia lumia 1520 / htc One M8 for windows can survive till windows phone 12/15 (13 is bad luck number, 14 contains 4, sounds like death in chinese, china is their main market)

    windows phone 7 using windows mobile's kernel type (monolithic, while wp8 is using hybrid NT kernel, which same as windows)
    and windows phone 7 has less API, which made it allowed to use under 256MB RAM, while in windows phone 8 are different

    How can anyone be excited when they can't even get their act together with officially releasing Windows Phone 8.1? I know....I know...it's the carriers. Tired of hearing that. The only hope at this point is the enterprise and the low to mid range market for Microsoft. Based on what we are seeing this fall it appears they know it too but won't come out and say it. I have teenagers and a failed attempt to get one to use a Windows Phone- didn't work. Couldn't even sustain it for a year before giving in to Apple. I am a Microsoft fan, but I just don't see them ever getting significant market share, that mountain is way too high. They know it too because they already have set up camp in iOS and Android with Onedrive and Office. So can I get excited with Wp 9? Not really because I can't even see an offical version of 8.1 on my Lumia now and it was announced how many months ago?
