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


    Feautures:
    • 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, but need to test the HTML5.
    • XBox Music is better.

    You have to have the HTC Make More Space app, and there you can delete temporary files, not to much effecting the other folder, but the other folders isn't big as it was before ;)

    You can pin music that u pay, u can pin albums, and at least to me it's faster. By faster I mean reading music from my SD card, and feels more responsive.
