Undoubtedly most of you know by now that Lumia Denim, the next firmware version behind Windows Phone, is rolling out worldwide. The update, which is actually a firmware (the Denim part) and software (the Windows Phone 8.1 part), is essentially only available in Europe at the moment but you can expect that it will hit the US shores in the new year. If you are curious as to what is coming in Lumia Denim with Windows Phone 8.1 then check out my Guide to Lumia Denim.
How then, you may ask, did I get Lumia Denim on my Windows Phone? Those of you who know me or follow me on Twitter know that last month I moved back the United States from England. I was in the UK for two years during which time I acquired the Lumia 1320. That phone is the country variant version of the 1320 for the UK which, you guessed it, is one of the phones that now has Lumia Denim available. Now when you will see Lumia Denim on your phone is anyone’s guess but unless you live in Europe and have one of these country variant phones, the chances are likely it will be 2015 before you see any updates.
But I digress.
I’ve spent the weekend with Lumia Denim on my 1320 and overall it has certainly been a worthwhile upgrade. That said, it isn’t perfect and I have run into a few issues but not enough to make me want to revert back to Lumia Cyan.
