Update brings FM radio capabilities to Lumia handsets
by Ernest Doku
Seattle based software developer Microsoft is prepping an update to Windows Phone 8 run handsets, which will offer access to those that have FM radios - which are currently dormant.
The update, thought to be called General Distribution Release (GDR2) for Windows Phone 8, will activate that hardware along with providing a new screen gesture.
That will be coming from Nokia, where Lumia 920 and 820 owners will be able to simply double-tap the screen to wake the device.
This is opposed to pressing the power on/standby button to reactive the mobile phone that has entered the standby-mode.
Tech news title The Verge has learned this information, from sources familiar with Microsoft and Nokia's plans.
It also adds that other improvements coming from Nokia are a flip to silence mode, and a Lumia colour profile setting for the devices.
The update is believed to be a minor one, and will be made available over the next coming months.
