We’ve already seen carriers getting ready for these updates, but when exactly could we hope for them to arrive? The latest word from carriers suggest our first updates could land any minute now, and should be in broad distribution by next week.

That more imminent news comes from T-Mobile in the Netherlands, with a rep mentioning updates beginning sometime between January 14 and January 21. Bouygues Telecom in France appears to also be looking at a similar window, and informs its users that updates will commence next week.

Bouygues Telecom goes one step further in sharing a list of the phones on track to get their updates, naming the Lumia 635, Lumia 640, Lumia 640 XL, Lumia 730, Lumia 735, Lumia 830, Lumia 930, Lumia 1520, and Lumia 532/535/540/636/638 models.
