Some Nokia Lumia 620s shipped with solution to "other" storage problem

Some Nokia Lumia 620s shipped with solution to
You might recall that the other day, Window Phone's Joe Belfiore sent out a tweet that acknowledged the storage problem that some users of the OS have been experiencing. Native storage has been disappearing from a number of handsets powered by Windows Phone 8, and some of that storage has ended up in a mysterious "other" category.

A fix for this problem has been seen on a new version of the firmware shipped out with the latest version of the Nokia Lumia 620. While the current Lumia 620 model mostly has the 1250 firmware, a firmware version numbered 1307 seems to have the repair. With a new feature called Storage Check, users can clear temporary cache files in the "other" category and recapture the native storage that has been disappearing. The same Storage management is found on firmware 1308 for the Nokia Lumia 920.

Eventually, the new firmware versions containing this updated Storage management feature will have to be rolled out by Nokia. After all, no one likes to have even 1GB of storage hijacked by a mysterious file.

There's nothing wrong with hedging your bets. And by the response from android users, they'd probably have a hit on their hands. They might give Samsung a run for their money. And they wouldn't be the only OEM who does double duty. Samsung & HTC both make phones for multiple OSs. I don't really see why that would be a bad thing. Why is more choice a bad thing?

How about, NO. I'd prefer to see more variety in the market, if everyone goes android then it would be boring. Seriously boring. If Nokia went Android, other than Apple & Blackberry (of course), everyone else would be using Android as their major platform. Slip in whatever custom rom or skins u like, but in the end it's just Android no matter how you modify it. On windows phone UI looking like ugly tiles - it does, by default, but it depends how you customize and arrange your tiles. Lots of apps in the app store helps in customization. None of my friends and relatives who has seen my WP8 phone's UI says it is ugly, because I modified it heavily.

nah.... nokia has never been about specs... check its monster phones, their capabilities and their specs.... its really shameful that i can do so much on my n900 than i can do on my gs3... comparing their specs its not even a proper competition but features..... try installing a fully operational desktop OS on an android phone (not a skin or loader)... only problem was its HORRIBLE battery life the 920 is the highest specced nokia phone to date but it actually doesnt NEED those specs... dont talk about n9 and 808 pureview, specwise they suck but try fitting 41MP on an android.... try operating an android phone (without headaches) that has less than 1gb ram and single core.... you cant a nokia android phone would be quickly compared to a gs2 and be classed as garbage no matter how optimized it is.... android NEEDS 1gb and dualcore.... heck now you are talking about octacore on phones...... and if they run android they will still LAG

Nokia is a dying phone maker that specializes in a niche operating system. Android does not need them. All of Nokia's offerings would be considered mid-range to Android users. Android does not need more mid-range garbage

Windows phone is nice OS, but needs lots of customization
