While Microsoft's latest Windows Phone 8 update is slowly rolling out to existing handsets, the company is prepping new changes that will be made available by the end of the year. Sources familiar with Microsoft's Windows Phone plans have revealed to The Verge that the software maker is currently testing a General Distribution 3 (GDR3) update. The update is designed for new hardware initially, and will provide a rotation lock feature, UI changes to Live Tiles, and a driving mode option that's designed for in-car use.

Apple and Google are surely shaking in their boots.

None of the above. Me was a minor update, 7 was a major upgrade. My point is that WinPho 8 needs a major upgrade, not tweaks. Sorry I was too subtle there.

7 was a minor update which did little more than change the bad perception Vista had.
