Windows Phone. You've now got a fighting chance! (Windows 8.1 feature set post)


  • Swype support (Sorry iOS, your now out in the cold).
  • VPN (Er... the business phone with Office and Exchange support but no VPN till now!!!)
  • Rotation lock. ( Reading emails in bed will no longer be infuriating).

You've finally listened!

Now all I need is Sky Go but I can live without while I still have a tablet!
