    That looks like a really nice device. Are you getting one?

    I would think it would, they released the 625 reasonably fast in the UK.

    I was really hoping the 525 was going to be available on Verizon. They desperately need a 5xx device for off contract users.

    while its possible, I doubt it given it likely has a similar or identical cheapo LCD which didn't fly with glance to begin with

    Xandros: Why do you think glance not working had something to do with the LCD? It comes with 'super sensitive' touch.. I'm betting glance does work.

    super sensitive touch is a feature of the digitizer, glance is a feature of the display beneath, two usually different parts.
    While I don't know whats going on in Nokia's head, here's my take:

    It has an LCD, which is already a strike as compared to AMOLED. Yes, the LCD-equipped 920 and 720 do have glance.
    but I think primarily, the 52x has a lower quality display and likely would use more power than Nokia's engineers would've liked. The official reason is "hardware restrictions" as given by Nokia.
    My guess is that the lower-cost backlight won't like the really low power level that Glance would require and would flicker or otherwise look bad.

    As for the 525 thouhg, I'd love to be wrong.

    You're half right - AT&T Lumia 520's in the US have DTTW but no L520's anywhere have the Glance feature due to Hardware Restrictions.
