GDR3 update found on 15% of Windows Phone models
AdDuplex's founder, Alan Mendelevich, often tweets out information pertaining to Windows Phone. That's because AdDuplex is a mobile network that caters to the platform. According to Mendelevich, 15% of Windows Phone handsets have the GDR3 update. This is the update that allows Windows Phone handset manufacturers to equip their devices with larger screens featuring 1080 x 1920 resolution, and power these models with a quad-core Snapdragon processor.

The update also includes an update to the Data Sense data usage monitoring application, which restricts background data when roaming. This prevents an app running in the background from eating you out of house and home once you stray from the price protection of your carrier's territory. In addition, after the update, the 3G and Wi-Fi icons show when data is transmitted.

Another interesting tidbit of information coming from Mendelevich reveals that the top 12 Windows Phone handsets in use are all Nokia Lumia models. Anyone surprised?

Thanks, Anonymous Tipster!
