Rumour: WP8 GDR3 may include a notification centre



Author Surur // in News

NokiaPowerUser claims to have been tipped that the the long-awaited and elusive Windows Phone Notification Centre may make an appearance in Windows Phone 8 GDR3, expected at the end of the year, rather than waiting for Windows Phone 8.1/9 in early 2014.

Their tipster claims Nokia India is testing the update, along with an unexplained feature called “Appetite”.

While many fans consider the Windows Phone 8 Start Screen to be a more than adequate notification centre, we also know from earlier leaks that Microsoft fully intended to include a notification centre in Windows Phone 8 but ran out of time, making a notification centre in fact a missing part of the Windows Phone 8 vision which is placing the OS at a disadvantage compared to other mobile operating systems.

Hopefully what is being tested at Nokia India is not Nokia’s own makeshift solution while Microsoft still works (slowly) on the official version.
