Good news, though I was hoping of July. But the Amber update brings news stuff to the Lumia's.
WP8 is great. If you're tired of force close, reboots, freeze on Android. WP8 is extremely stable and lag-free.
Carol, 30 Jun 2013by the way, i still hope Sailfish OS will be powered by Nokia hardware:).And why is that?
This will bring always on screen, double tap to wake up screen, FM Radio, Smart camera, CalDAV and CardDAV, etc...
Just for knowledge of trolls Nokia is not Lumia. Nokia is research, design, developer, navigation and many many areas more. Nokia is not only making phones. And that a big merit because is not like OTHERS, the make their own designs and not being copycats of nobody. And many of today HOT stuff cames from Nokias researching teams :D
They believe that if Nokia don't sold smart-phones is dead, hmmm think twice. Nokia will survive many years EVEN if they drop phones division. And with Microsoft behind thats will be very very unlikely :D
droopy, 30 Jun 2013Nokia is a dead company, WP8 is totally obsolete device. Zero Sales worldwideTrolls make me laugh so hard, since they believe Samsung-Apple or others will reign forever (also iOS and Android users), but they just forget that was the SAME PATH Nokia and Symbian was, and all technology cames to an end. And newcomers are getting (and pushing) hard. Companies like Huawei are getting strong very fast.
Microsoft is not a newbie in town. Neither Nokia. And just remeber Samsung was kissing Nokia boots for so many years, dont get too excited kid, technology is a b*tch.
That's a fact.

Did you read news lately?!
Nokia is a leader in Featured Phones. This is because they know how to do business with people that don't need an smart-phone at all, and believe me, in the first quarter of 2013 the sold 55,8 millions of featured phones, this make an profit of 323,64 million dollars. Very impressive numbers.
Some people are heaters but even they know Nokias was an outstanding leader and that was an fact. Even they sold almost 6 million Lumia phones in the first quarter, very good for an WP device (people didnt even realize they can get those numbers). For a "dead company" is good.
Nokia needs to get more attention to their smartphone line. Ashas are doing well since they can get Whatsapp and Facebook on those BUT arent power enough to call it real smartphones. However, those are considered here fatured phone, and you have WIFI, 3G, Touchscreen and good apps. And those costs from 100 dlls :D
Don't you read anything?? it says August,so stop hoping it'll be July. God sake
Carol, 30 Jun 2013by the way, i still hope Sailfish OS will be powered by Nokia hardware:).Jolla is full of ex Nokia staff, so i think the hardwares will be same durable as of Nokia phones, not sure about it. I hope Windows Phone OS would die and Elop would be fired from the company and Nokia will acquire Jolla and make Sailfish OS based phones.

This is good for Nokia, I love this actually is one of the brands that update frequently their line. Even WP 7.8 ones will have some minor updates to stay fresh on the market.
Good for Nokia!
Was a big Nokia fan.......but am heading over androids'.....buying Lumia 520 was one of my biggest wrong decision

So much fuss around WP8 having built in MS Office. Yet most of the spreadsheets you open is confronted with the message " can't edit workbook" Hope the update addresses this issue. So far Microsoft have been very indifferent around this issue as I have seen in various forums
Anonymous, 30 Jun 2013Agreed. Double tap to unlock was a feature of MeGGo OS. Same thing in Sailfish OS by the way, i still hope Sailfish OS will be powered by Nokia hardware:).
