Lumia 920, 820 Updates Arrive As Microsoft Makes 10211 Changes Official

We saw Nokia getting all its ducks in a row yesterday as Windows Phone updates for the Lumia 920 and 820 made their way to the company’s servers. All we needed was word of when official distribution would actually get underway. As it turns out, we hardly had to wait at all (unlike what’s going on with the HTC 8X on T-Mobile), and today updates are going out to Nokia users in the US and Canada.

Today’s update may only be available in North America, but Nokia hasn’t forgotten about Lumia users living elsewhere. Unfortunately, they won’t see their own updates arrive before the year’s out, and right now Nokia’s looking at getting around to them sometime in early February.

Some enhancements in this update are exclusive to Nokia. Those includes things like the 920’s camera fix and some improved battery performance. Others are part of the platform’s upgrade to WP8 build 10211, and for that Microsoft just posted its own changelog to its Windows Phone 8 update history page. This is the first such entry there, and it details new features like the enhanced SMS functionality, new WiFi options, and data-saving Internet Explorer tweaks.
