EE customers rejoice; operator plans to roll out GDR2 and Amber mid-September

Those of you who are still eagerly awaiting the Amber / GDR2 rollout, we have some positive news for EE customers. The UK mobile operator took to Twitter today to reveal mid-September as to when Lumia Windows Phone owners can expect to see the updates shipped out on the network. Not long to go now, folks. EE is the last UK mobile operator to approve the software updates for the Lumia 920 and Lumia 820.

EE Amber Rollout

The GDR2 update from Microsoft brings along with it FM radio support, fixes for Xbox MusicOther storage fix and other minor improvements. Amber is the name for Nokia’s accompanying firmware and it allows new camera features, Glance and flip to silence, to name a few new additions (depending on hardware).

Keep an eye on Nokia's update page for when the updates are released, as well as our feed and EE's Twitter account.
