rotation lockMicrosoft is certainly serious with their Windows Phone 8 mobile operating system, as they have introduced Update 3 for Windows Phone 8. Update 3 will bring with it additional live tiles among other improvements as well as new features, which should do its part to ensure that the smartphone platform would be able to make it through this holiday sales cycle without missing out on a single bit. Some of the new set of code would be additional support for faster processors, larger displays, higher resolution displays, and improved Internet sharing among others.

This is definitely the ideal way to celebrate Windows Phone’s third birthday as a public smartphone platform. Basically, you can drop the Windows Phone 8.1 moniker as its carries the official name of ‘Windows Phone 8 Update 3.’ Oh yeah, did we forget to mention that the update will also bring along with it accessibility upgrades, in addition to a brand new developer program which would ensure that this new firmware would end up in the hands of developers in a faster manner than ever before. It does seem as though Microsoft is hoping that new hardware is required to breath new life into its range of Windows Phone handsets, instead of dramatically revamped software, as part of its effort to increase their market share. Do you share a similar sentiment?
