Lumia 1020 and 925 get Denim update in Europe

The Lumia 1020 and 925 are finally getting the long-awaited Denim update in select European markets. Today Microsoft confirmed that the roll-out has officially begun but as usual it might take some time to reach every device out there. Different carrier update schedules can affect availability just as much as geographical location.

One of our readers from Hungary has already provided us with a screenshot of the OTA and everything seems to check out. So if you own a Lumia 1020 or Lumia 925 be sure to check regularly over the next few days for the update package and report back with any interesting findings.

News has already surfaced that O2 in the UK will start updating their units today, but things can get a little messy when searching for availability. The US Lumia 1020 for instance is available exclusively through AT&T and they are yet to share any information on update plans.

In case you find it hard to make sense of it all, Microsoft is providing nicely organized version tables for their smartphones, that let users see if the handset they own is eligible for the Denim update and if not what is the latest Windows Phone package they can get. The lists can be accessed according to region from the links below:

Africa
Asia Pacific
Europe
Latin America
Middle East
North America

Microsoft has also provided a concise change log of update. Cortana is of course center stage, but there are also a lot of little improvements in the two device’s behavior.

Latest software release for Nokia Lumia 925 is Lumia Denim (3051.50009.1451.10xx/8.10.14226.359)
