Whilst changelogs helps to know what you’re going to get in an update, it still leaves some questions to be answered (moreover if you haven’t received one).

NokConv have a post that answers, hopefully, most of the rest of the questions about Amber.

My own question is where’s my update? Ali’s UK 920 has it but I’m in the UK with my own 920 from Orange/EE and I still don’t have it. It’s apparently said to appear on all handsets by September. Availability of an update is one thing; getting it to your device is another.

Why doesn’t everyone get the update at once?

To ensure the software update meets our quality standards, we’re running multiple tests with various country variants and operators. We make the updates available to you as soon as we complete testing. With Lumia Amber we expect to have the update arriving in all Lumia Windows Phone 8 phones by the end of September. Be patient – it’s coming!

We have our own questions from Nokia as posed by the questions:

  • The 820 has similar internals to 9xx. Why no procam? Is OIS making things a bit different here?
  • Why no double tap to wake for Lumia 720, Lumia 720T, Lumia 625, Lumia 620, Lumia 521, Lumia 520, or Lumia 520T? There’s an iffy “require certain hardware specifications to be available on the phone”

Cheers Alvester for the tip!
