Latest news is that the Nokia Amber update will be arriving late August/Early September. Top priority will be given to the Nokia Lumia 920 which will receive the update first and will slowly spread to other Lumia devices with Windows 8.
Source 1 : GSMArena
Many other sources available type 'Nokia Amber' in Google News.
News date is 15th August 2013 so its latest.
Many are saying India is going to receive the Amber update today evening and some Nokia Care official has confirmed the same. Well don't believe on employees most employees in India are straight from Bihar and they keep bluffing to avoid queries. Further I really doubt an Asian country to receive the update first leaving all the developed countries behind.
Yes if lucky India may receive the update today (i hope we get it today really) but if not today then 2-3 weeks more.
Fingers Crossed for today!
Nokia Lumia 820 and 920 device owners can manually flash the Leaked Amber ROM if they are unable to wait any more. Google for the same. However you will lose all date it will be a fresh installation.
- Nokia Lumia 820.

Still just speculation from GSMArena though in my humble opinion. In fact, GDR2/Amber is being released tomorrow for the 920 on the Australian network Telstra, and that has been announced officially by Telstra.
So, if they can start rolling out the update tomorrow then there is no reason why other networks/regions can't follow suit and roll out the update now.

In theory Nokia could update the phones with a vanilla update (and a caveat), and then the full fix later, but then you can guarantee loads of impatient people who ignore the caveat, have issues with their phones, and create loads of noise all around the internet, and bug Nokia customer services.

In the past it was the unbranded handsets that received the updates first whilst the network branded phones had to wait for their respective networks to test and approve the update. This is still the case with Samsung/Android where I will get any updates for my unbranded S 3 before network branded S 3's.

Nokia has added this info in their official website.
Coming Soon - Coming Next
Waiting For Approval - Will Take Time.
So the order of updates...

Just checked for the UK the following URL -
Availability in Europe - Nokia
and found that it's not even correct for the previous update which I have had for months. It's showing -
1232.5957.1308.00xx Coming soon
which is completely wrong! They really need to get their act together.
