GDR3 Coming Soon

So there is a lot of talk as to when the GDR3 update will be rolling out to our lovely Windows Phone devices in Australia. Below is a table of carrier data. You can see that many carriers have completed or a close to completing their testing and are waiting for Microsoft to flick the switch so we shouldn’t have to wait too much longer.

At this time Optus does not have a page that shows when they are planning to release updates. Their website is particularly unhelpful and if you are an Optus subscriber we would encourage you to provide feedback to the carrier that its not only Android users that want updates.

Who offers what?

Who offers what?

So far in Australia we only have one second generation device on one carrier and that is the Samsung Omnia W on Telstra. With Nokia Australia having announced on their Facebook Account that the Lumia 800 is coming to all carriers in March, this is what the Australian Windows Phone market looks like.
