Sorry friends on AT&T, no GDR2 today for your Lumia 920. Instead we’ve got some good news for everyone on Verizon with the HTC 8X – GDR2 is coming soon for you. The little update that brings new features like FM radio support, improvements for Xbox Music and more is right around the corner.
We’ve already seen the GDR2 update appear for the 8X on AT&T and T-Mobile. Now Verizon is prepping to jump on the gravy train. We just checked with our 8X on Verizon and don’t show an update just yet, but the fact that a support page already has a little promo page ready tells us it’s coming sooner than later.
The PDF shows a software version build number of 3030.0.34201.605 and baseband of 0.17.50.0603. When you do update to GDR2 on your HTC 8X you can look forward to:
- Make assisted calls more easily while roaming in select international destinations
- Access song and album information more accurately with the Xbox Music experience
- Enjoy better web browsing with improved HTML5 compability in Internet Explorer
- Connect with greater stability when using Voice over Internet Protocol (VoIP) apps like Lync and Skype
New features to the 8X will include FM radio, group text (which will be off by default and you’ll need to turn on), and support for IMAP for email, CardDAV for contacts and CalDAV for calendar when setting up a Gmail account.
All these features will come when the GDR2 update for the 8X hits. Like we said, we didn’t see it on any devices we have, but will let you know when it comes.
