The Amber WP8 update is actually limited to Nokia’s Windows Phone 8 devices. It will bring a new clock and the new Smart Camera application, apart from a host of other Nokia specific enhancements. This and the GDR2 update will both also bring support for FM radios to compatible devices. It is not known how many of the features from Amber will be made available to compatible devices from other manufacturers. Telstra’s list doesn’t exactly pin point a precise date on which the GDR2 update is going to be released, at least it provides a time frame in which the update can be expected. The list also includes HTC’s devices, though the company itself hasn’t detailed any plans related to the Windows Phone 8 GDR2 update.
