    One week ago, we saw Microsoft post a new entry on its Windows Phone 8 update history page, describing the platform's GDR2 update. While it was arriving from the factory on certain new handset, we had yet to witness the update go out to existing phones. Seeing that page change made us wonder if updates were forthcoming, and it seems that notion was right on the money; let's take a look at what's happened. You may have already heard that GDR2 updates were spotted a little earlier this week heading out to the unlocked Samsung Ativ S. That's no longer sounding like an isolated case, as today ...

Alongside with the announcement of the Nokia Lumia 925, the company has also announced that their "Nokia Amber" update should reach all current Nokia Lumia handsets in July as part of their GDR2 update to Windows Phone 8. Among the features, this update brings FM radio support to ever Lumia except for the 620, which doesn't include the hardware capabilities for FM Radio. ...

    Watch today's Pocketnow Daily as we talk about Windows Phone 8 GDR2 and a a possible release date along with some billboards that show us what the Nokia Lumia 928 is all about. Then we move to HTC as the red HTC One shows itself in the UK, along with the fact that HTC has improved in sales this month when compared to last month. Then we go through the BlackBerry R10 being compared the Q10, just to make your choice for either much easier since the R10 is just ugly. Later we go through the leaks of a mysterious LG phone we assume to be the Optimus G2, and then we talk about the reports that ...
