    Try to go "Search for update" manualy on the phone update section in settings.
    Stay tunned for news.


    Features list:
    • Data sense is not available for us. (At least for me).
    • Radio is available.
    • Skype performance is really good.
    • Camera lenses update doesn't seem to work.
    • Internet explorer is faster, HTML5 Support is comfirmed
    • XBox Music is better.

    My 8S got one, too.

    Finally, an option to delete inactive temp files has been included ! We will see if it helps...

    No, I'm from Poland.

    And one nice thing I have noticed... the built-in camera application is much faster than before.

    Download the HTC "Get more space" application and the magic wand is there ;-)

    yeah, i did. but, i've just checked, and there's another phone update, so maybe it'll be available once it's installed.
