Windows "Named General Distribution Release 2 (GDR2), the latest update enables Data Sense, a way to track how data is being used, alongside FM radio, and the ability to set other applications as the default camera. [...] GDR2 also includes support for Gmail's CalrdDAV and CalDAV implementation, allowing Windows Phone users to continue syncing calendar and contacts after Google announced its intention to pull its Exchange ActiveSync service earlier this year." There's something wrong with your operating system's update/improvement rate when such a minute, insignificant release is news.

Even I, user since day one, left it behind this week. It's a mismanaged did, leaving a trail of withered potential.

It did have potential and the whole thing is a shame especially because Nokia has held up their end of the deal by making some nice looking hardware. Nokia should be allowed to sell Android as an option on at least their upper end phones. They can't compete with the Galaxy using Windows Phone in the US. That's just the way it is. The US market has voted iPhone/Android and the external development gap is an ongoing problem.

I would really hate to see Nokia buried by Microsoft buying them out. I'd really like to see them have the chance to compete openly against Samsung.
