    I wonder what could be the reason behind it?
    It does have AMOLED screen, so it should fit it perfectly. Something funky with the hardware that prevents it or simply coming in a software update?

    Garbage has no reason. Hence the name garbage.

    dealbreaker. Glance is once of the main reasons I switched to winphone. Looks like it's back to the Droid Maxx...

    This completely sucks.

    Wow. I was all set to talk to my business rep and tell her to order me the Icon next week. But then today, I see that it doesn't have Glance and I think I'll wait. Now that Black came out for the 928, the extra notifications on the glance screen are just awesome. In my opinion, the best feature of Black. I mean, is there any other OS out there that has a feature like the glance screen where you can see your notifications without turning it on? We have been asking for a notification "light" but this is so much better.

    You guys are all assuming it won't be supported by the time the phone launches. For all we know, it might be. They didn't say it isn't EVER going to be supported, they just said it isn't at this moment and the phone isn't out yet.

    If the 928 has it don't you think the Icon will get it?

    Maybe it was an oversight?

    I wonder.................are they are saying it is a Hardware Issue and leaving it off to get better battery stats?

    So the Icon has an OLED screen, while the 928 has an AMOLED screen. I think those are different technologies.

    The AM (active matrix) part of AMOLED allows each individual pixal to be turned on and off, that is why Glance is so battery friendly, you are not firing up the entire screen.

    Plain on OLED doesn't have that.

    For me it might be a deal breaker. I love Active Notifications on the Moto X and was hoping Nokiasoft was moving in that direction with Glance.

    I hate it when Nokia lies blatantly about these things. They said the same thing about the 520-720. Hardware restrictions, so no double tap or glance. But as soon as Black came out, there were no more hardware restrictions haha. I think it'll be a matter of time. Probably because it is still preproduction hardware, they just haven't released the glance app for the Icon yet.

    Are you sure it's just OLED and not AMOLED? The Nokia site itself in the tech specs says it's AMOLED.

    No, the Icon will be AMOLED as well. Sometimes bloggers will write incorrect information. And more often than not, OLED and AMOLED are used interchangeably.

    This is ridiculous. Do you guys really expect a flagship to not have one of the most beloved specs of a Nokia phone? Especially a feature that was even updated recently? Something that works even on the IPS's of the 720 and 620?

    Yep. I'm out. Total deal breaker. I'm highly addicted to Glance on my 928. Especially the double tap to wake the screen. Somebody really screwed the pooch on this one....

    EDIT: Following article describes the feature very well, with a demonstration also.

    Double tap to wake is different than Glance. The Icon should still have Double tap to wake

    I don't think they were going to add the unannounced Icon/929 to the list of devices that would support Glance for an article posted in July of last year...

    As per the article,
    That also means no double-tap to wake, as the two features are intertwined.

    He was responding to my question as to what Glance is.

    That being said, glad I don't currently have a WP. I might actually miss this feature. :P

    Interesting, as the AT&T Lumia 520 has double-tap to wake, but no Glance.

    Amazing how many people will not get the Icon because of Glance. I get that it's a great feature. But considering how it's an upgrade to the 928 in basically every way, there is no way Im not picking this phone up. Besides, there's still a chance it'll get it. But for me, not a deal breaker at all.
