AT&T has announced that it is ready to roll out the Microsoft Windows Phone 8.1 software update to the Nokia Lumia 1020.
The carrier has been committed to delivering the latest software to its array of Windows Phone smartphones, and it now looks like the Nokia Lumia 1020 smartphone is the next in line to receive the treats.
"AT&T customers continue to be the first in the nation to receive Microsoft Windows Phone 8.1 software updates on a regular basis," boasts AT&T.
"Following the recently released Windows Phone 8.1 software updates for the Nokia Lumia 1520, Nokia Lumia 925 and Nokia Lumia 520 smartphones - the highly anticipated software update for Nokia Lumia 1020 is now available for AT&T customers."
Windows Phone 8.1 brings notable improvements over the previous version of the operating system, adding neat new features and enhancements designed to improve the overall experience and functionality.
One of the most highly-anticipated features that Windows Phone 8.1 brings to the table is Cortana, Microsoft's new digital assistant and answer to Apple's Siri and Google Now. Cortana has some exciting tricks up "her" sleeve, launching as the only smartphone assistant able to set reminders not only by time or location, but also by people.
In addition to Cortana, however, Windows Phone 8.1 has several other goodies to bring to the table. In terms of personalization, the new OS version will allow users to customize Live Tiles with multiple sizes, transparency, and color options, or pin apps, music, and people to their Start Screen for easier access. One Windows, consisting of OneDrive, Skype, Office, and Bing, aims to reinvent the Windows experience across all screens for easier sharing, shooting, playing, and more, on the go. The update further brings improvements to Xbox, efficiency, Word Flow keyboard with shape writing, and more.
The Nokia Lumia 1020 is already a powerful smartphone that drew plenty of interest when it launched, and the new software update will surely make it even more appealing.
