    yeah i'm sure you're right. the hardware limitation (display memory) will be increased by a firmware update later.
    Let me know when and i'll get one.
    Until you can explain to me what the hardware limitation of "display memory" means as it pertains to glance, we still don't know whether or not the Icon is capable of handling Glance with an update. If Nokia Blue comes along, and we still don't have Glance, then i'll be willing to say with some certainty that the Icon is never getting it.

    There is missing a wire connection between the screen pixels & an internal memory byte.

    There us a flaw in my above logic. Nokia may abandon OLED screens entirely in favor of IPS. So the icon could be end if the road and never get Glance.

    Take this with a grain of salt and over thinking this...

    Today there's an update for Extras+Info and when I when to check the setting I noticed this in the list of apps, "Glance PinBoards App Agent 1.2.0.0". I don't know if it was there before the update and if the version changed.

    If Glance isn't supported; supposedly. What is "Glance PinBoards App Agent" then?

    Hmm so they updated the version from 1.1.2.3 to 1.2.0.0, interesting. So I wonder what does that app does....

    Dumb question: how do I get this "update"? Don't see in Store or via Sysapp pusher

    It showed up in sysapp pusher for me. See if this link works for you, extras+info | Windows Phone Apps+Games Store (United States)

    Right...
    [INFO]The Nokia Lumia 930 does not have Glance, heres why The problem with the Nokia Icon/930 and running Glance comes down to the display type. No, its not the AMOLED technology (the Lumia 928 proves otherwise) and its obviously not the 1080P resolution (the Lumia 1520 attests to that) but rather its the type of AMOLED screen used. More to the point, the screen used on the Lumia Icon/930 lacks display memory. Long story short, in order for Glance to work, it needs display memory to maintain the information presented by the program.[/INFO]
    I was right... they can't use the internal memory, a missing wire

    Has there been any effort on glance, or is this now a dead issue?

    I'm ok with accepting the fact that the Icon may never get Glance, It's a great phone regardless. I'm just baffled that Nokia would choose a screen, knowing that one of their best features would not be able to function on them. Poor decision on Nokia in my opinion.

    It's a deal breaker. I'm sticking with att because the 1520 has glance
