That means its coming soon for the att 1520! I can't wait because the DP has so many bugs with force closes, reboots, excessive resuming, audio discrepancies, weird lock screen behavior, all topped off with really poor battery life... I hope this fixes all dat..
Also, Samsung was before Nokia in this case lol
This approval applies for Android updates too, but not iOS as Apple insist that carries doubt meddle with updates I'd they want to flog shiny iPhones (which is great until they release updates like 8.0.1 which ended up bricking a large portion of handsets due to network incompatibilities).
And why not just write Denim update instead of 8.1 update 1, its confusing :p
Correct me if I am wrong :)
For e.g. Lumia phones have firmware namely Black, Cyan etc which Nokia use to make prior to Microsoft acquiring Nokia (now Microsoft owns it so it doesn't make any difference) so I guess similar rule apply for others like HTC etc.
Please correct me if I am wrong...
I use unlocked version so might not for me but there are alot of people out there who wait way too much for update
On a side note, I really wish I could change Cortana's accent back to American. She sounds so robotic now. :(
