Lumia Cyan rolls out to Lumia 820 in the EU
Lumia 820 users in the UK and several other European countries are reporting the Lumia Cyan update is now available for their devices. It ships as an OTA update and we encourage owners of the devices to head over to their device settings and look for it manually. It will probably be a staggered release to accommodate the various country- and carrier-specific versions, so not all phones will get it immediately, but it should see wide distribution over the next few days.

Lumia Cyan is an integrated software and firmware update featuring Windows Phone 8.1 and Nokia specific improvements intended to deliver the best experience of WP 8.1 to Lumia devices. Windows Phone 8.1 was officially ready back in July, so it took the Nokia team a little over a month to deliver the update to the Lumia 820. Nokia, which was acquired by Microsoft back in April, shows the commitment of its parent company to the Lumia handset line so far. The rapid release of Cyan for improved functionality on devices is a good step towards keeping customers happy. Users should also rejoice with the fact the firmware is made available to a device that is almost two years old. Microsoft is clearly looking to avoid the missteps of Android, where many devices that are more than a year old often never receive an update to the newer versions of the mobile OS.
