The roll-out of the previous update - GDR2 - isn't even complete (thank you, carriers), and Microsoft is already pushing out the next one, GDR3. This update for Windows Phone 8 is the last one before 8.1 comes out next year, and brings with it a number of small improvements, such a close button in the multitasking view, a driving mode, support for newer hardware and 1080p displays, a rotation lock, and more.

There's no telling as of yet when Windows Phone 8 users will be getting the update, but non-branded phones will most likely get it first. On top of that, if you're a Windows Phone developer, you can get the update straight away.

Apple are hardly the only ones to block tethering. Not a problem for me, as my phone's unlocked and not subsidized. I just used it this morning, so I know it absolutely does work.


Translation: the small minority (at least in North America) who use unlocked iPhones can use tethering without any carrier restrictions. Compared to the majority of Android users, who can just go download something like PDANet from the Play store.

And that's supposed to be a rebuttal? LOL!
