There's news floating around about how the GDR2, GDR3 upates will bring basic functionality (such as orientation screen lock etc) to windows phone 8 allowing it to compete with the heavyweights in the mobile world. Owning a Windows phone 7 was without a doubt obviously excrutiating. Nonetheless the reasons I decided to go to the shop and buy one was the quick smooth user interface amongst other reasons. Things which I expected my phone to be able to do - the things which are going to be available in the GDR2 and GDR3 updates, I read, are constantly referenced to Windows phone 8. Will those updates be available to Windows phone 7?
