We yesterday shared with you all about the Official Posting of Nokia Lumia 920 & 820 update. We said that it looks like Global update phased to complete by Mid March. Looks like that isn’t the case except that updates are coming.
According to WPCentral, they have an update from Nokia Nokia’s Communications Manager of North America Chris Hollis
“A Nokia Lumia Windows Phone 8 software update providing performance enhancements for the Nokia Lumia 820 and Nokia Lumia 920, has started rolling out over the air to operators. This currently includes Lumia 920 owners on AT&T and Rogers, Lumia 820 users on AT&T, and Lumia 810 users on T-Mobile. Delivery will continue in a phased manner over the coming weeks and is expected to be complete by the end of February. People will receive a notification on their phone when the update is available for them to download.”
And the statement which was posted on the Nokia Official Forum (By Michaels, Nokia Community Manager) was:
A Nokia Lumia Windows Phone 8 software update providing performance enhancements for the Nokia Lumia 820 and Nokia Lumia 920 has started rolling out over the air. Delivery will continue in a phased manner over the coming weeks and is expected to be complete by mid-March. You will receive a notification on your phone when the update is available for you to download.
If you have read both the paragraphs carefully, you must have noticed the obvious difference of being specific and being general. The statement issued by Michaels was a very general statement.
This could have let anybody assume that the update could have been Global even though it wasn’t mentioned. So unless, somebody gets specific the option is always considered as general.
Daniel Rubino at wpcentral also mentions that update for International Devices and unlocked devices is still under testing and will not be rolled out unless its approved.
So with all these confusions at least one thing is sure that the updates are coming sooner or later. So even though there is no point in hitting the check for updates button every now and then, but you can check once every week. Since its over the air update, chances are you will be getting to know about it automatically.
