Windows Phone 8 GDR2 update coming in July?

Windows Phone 8 GDR2 update coming in July?

Looks like Microsoft is gearing towards launching a major update for its mobile platform. Unlike the previous GDR1, the forthcoming GDR2 update will apparently include a ton of changes, including widespread support for the DataSense application which was previously exclusive to Verizon Wireless users as well as support for FM Radio.

According Australia’s Telstra, the expected approval date for the update (at least for the Nokia Lumia 920) is July 8, followed by the Lumia 520, HTC 8X and HTC 8S a week later.

Of course, nothing is official until it’s official and we’re not sure whether users all around the world will get their updates at the same time or sooner/later. We will, however, keep our eyes wide open and let you know as soon as we have something new to add to the story. Stay tuned in the meantime, k?
