A new update has just been announced by Microsoft on the official blog
No word yet on the release on Rogers but hopefully like Update 2 it will be sooner than later.
Happy Thanksgiving 🙂
Sorry, I should have stated the GDR3 update was received on my HTC 8X. Took about 10 mins. Some nice new features such as Driving Mode, plus Start screen seems to use more of the display (and remembers the setting). Ringtones and sounds were temporarily lost after the update, but restored after hard reset.
FWIW you can install the GRD3 today by creating a developer account and installing the update from MSFT. What you will not get is the update part for your device (Nokia Black for example)
I was at the main campus in Mississauga, the one that has the MTC in it. Microsoft and the carriers both do a horrible job at getting the Windows Phone presence out there. They are very capable devices, albeit with some hurdles to overcome still with things like lack of .wav file supprt (really MS?) lack of copy/paste, etc. But they are getting there.
Nokia has and currently does make amazing hardware but again, hardly anyone is aware.
