Nobody "knows" (who could talk about it, anyway) but rumors are that it should roll out in January

Generic statement from Nokia below which could indicate the other product lines will see it sometime after the start of the year.  At least from the handset manufacturer perspective.  Our carrier may see things differently!  Hopefully, it's released to us before 8.1 (Blue?).....

Lumia 925 have received Black Update on T-Mobile only, right? Not on AT&T.

 

It looks like T-Mobile recieved GDR3 Update only, without the Nokia Black update

The general rollout across all Lumias is expected "early 2014"

Oh no! Not this again! Didn't we just go through this with Amber? :smileysurprised:

 

Actually, I'm not quite as hung up on this update, as there aren't any "gotta have now" features in this list, that I can tell. Given AT&T's pathetic history with updates, what's the over/under? I'll start the bidding with middle of May.

I'd expect it in early Feb. Unless AT&T kicks it back to Nokia (like Amber on the 920) and then it might be early March.

 

Just a personal guess, I have no inside knowledge. The Amber update was due ~ 30 days after "waiting for approval" and then was rejected, it finally released ~ 30 days after THAT. So it seems likely the AT&T approval process takes about a month from when AT&T gets the software. Maybe.

Ignored? No.

 

They spend their time in the forums with the most activity. While WP is gaining in popularity, it pales in comparison to Android and iOS.

 

We'll know when Black is coming once they've finished testing. Giving us a date today and then missing it due to issues, they may just open the door for an outpouring of "love" from the community.

 

They will get lit up for not giving us a date, they'll get lit up for not sharing a date and they will get lit up for sharing a date that is not fast enough.
