The past few days have seen a flurry of news hit our front page. The Lumia 925 was announced for T-Mobile and the Nokia Lumia 1020 was officially revealed to the citizens of earth. It’s a glorious device with 41 million pixels at your disposal. So let’s switch it up and give you guys some news about all your “old” devices, the ones you’re currently holding or in your pocket. GDR2 could be coming sooner than you think.
GDR2 is the next operating system update we’re looking forward to in the Windows Phone world. Followed by GDR3 and Blue. Microsoft has posted some new info on their Windows Phone 8 update history page, which happens to detail some history that hasn’t really happened for anyone yet. Windows Phone update 8.0.10327.77 (or 8.0.10328.78 depending on your phone model and mobile operator) will include the following:
It's now easier to select, download, and pin music. Plus, music fans will see more accurate metadata (such as song and album information) and many other performance improvements.
Listen to FM radio right from the Music+Videos hub. (Not available for all phones.)
Stay on top of your phone's data usage with Data Sense. You can set a limit based on your data plan, or just keep track of which apps use the most data. (Not all mobile operators offer Data Sense.)
Voice over Internet Protocol (VoIP) apps like Lync and Skype now feature improved stability and performance.
Your web browsing experience is now better than ever with improved HTML 5 compatibility.
Set your favorite Lens so it opens automatically when you press the camera button. (Not available for all phones.)
Includes many other improvements to Windows Phone.
These changes while small, should help alleviate and improve the experience on Windows Phone. Also, the fact that they’re listed on the Windows Phone 8 update history page reveals they might be coming sooner than we think.
