Week in Review: July 22nd

Welcome to the Week in Review of July 22nd, where we highlight the top stories of the past week.

Nokia impatient with Microsoft

  • Nokia’s vice president is frustrated with the lack of certain apps people care about
  • “You can’t sell a phone without the apps, you just can’t”
  • He will be pressuring Microsoft to bring apps to WP

Head of WP responds to lack of major updates

  • Joe Belfiore said that Microsoft is trying to create more new devices, while also bringing new features to current users.
  • Claims that more features, in addition to FM radio are coming later this year.

“Other Storage”  fixed with GDR2

  • Joe Belfiore claims that the bug is fixed in the GDR2 update
  • However, a user’s Lumia 1020 (which already has GDR2) already has 2.6 GB of other storage. But this could be due to the phone saving a 34/38 MP shot of each picture. Time will tell if the issue is actually resolved!
