The Windows RT 8.1 based Nokia Lumia 2520 tablet will finally be hitting the Australian shores and at an exorbitant price, nearly 8 months since its global launch at Nokia World in October 2013.
Australian network Telstra has cancelled pre-orders for Nokia's flagship Lumia 1020 citing "Nokia software issues", but hopes that its customers will accept a free Lumia 520 by way of apology.
There's good news for Windows Phone users in Australia. Telstra says that tomorrow it will start pushing out the GDR2 + Amber update for Lumia 920 devices. Hopefully other devices will follow soon.
If you have been wondering when GDR2 was going to land for Windows Phone users, it looks like July might be the release window that will bring several new features to the Windows Phone platform.
The next update for Windows Phone 8, GDR2, is expected to begin testing by wireless service providers in a matter of weeks before being released to users of Microsoft's smartphone operating system.
Telstra has confirmed the Windows Phone 7.8 update will be coming by the end of January. The Lumia 800 will be the first device to get it with other phones being scheduled for the following months.
We reported yesterday that all over the world stores are running out of Lumia 920s due to high demand. Telstra has released a bit more info, making us cautiously optimistic regarding the Lumia launch.
It seems strong enthusiasm for Nokia's Lumia 920 has already left some folks without stock. Both Telstra in Australia and Clove in the UK report they are either sold out or on the way.
We recently received a tip from a forum member that suggests Australian phone carrier Telstra will launch the Nokia Lumia 920 on November 5th to coincide with the AT&T launch on November 4th
