Tom Warren says that WP8 GDR3 (General Distribution Release 3), a bigger update than the recently released (but not yet everywhere – I certainly don’t have it, hurray me) GDR2 is in testing. The reddit thread says it’s been in testing from employees at MS for many weeks.

Windows Phone 8 GDR3 update is in testing, let’s see what it brings 🙂

The much anticipated 6″ Nokia Quadcore Phablet should have GDR3, taking advantage of all cores plus 1080p screen. This is to be announced Q4.

The biggest update to WP is expected to come in the shape of Blue in 2014, something to further bridge the gap between WP8 and W8

I hope we get some surprises by what we see in GDR3 instead of having to wait again for Blue. Then I can stop whinging about MS doing jack shizzle for WP.

So, other than apps, what are the things WP is missing again? (I have a list in my head)
