    Yep... figured as much. If it was going to happen it would have before the products launched...

    I really like glance on my 928. I just ordered an Icon, but kind of think I will miss glance. There are advantages to the Icon, but I might be so used to glance that I can't give it up.

    I would rather have double-tap to wake over glance. Hey Nokia, can you at least give us that?

    It's the same issue of the screen not having a display memory. Both glance and double-tap use it.

    I missed Glance for a bit... about a day or so... then I didn't miss it anymore. The Icon has so much more to offer...

    I'll hang on to my 920 for now, I hope they get this resolved in time for the 1020's successor. I'd rather have a 768p glance screen than a 1080p blank screen when I look over at my nightstand or take the phone out of my pocket. Nokia needs to stop dropping features in new phones. In the US the 920 and 928 are the only ones not missing a previously available feature. When you upgrade from an iPhone 4s to a 5s, you never have to look back wistfully at all the features Apple dropped in the new model. You get something unequivocally better. Nokia needs to do that.

    This guy gets it.

    I'm holding out for a 1030 too... but I'm worried it may not have a camera grip or a lanyard. It's so hard to drop features like that. I also really want an SD Card. It's really necessary when recording lots of videos.

    As for Glance, I actually don't think I will buy another WP without it unless there is truly no choice in the matter.

    Nokia should have just popped for the better screen... I doubt it would have been more than 10 or 20 bucks.

    Even if it was $50 more I would rather pay that, then have a $600+ supposed flagship without key features from my existing device.

    Nokia should have just made a $700+ phone with an SD card slot and proper screen with glance, and not come out with a crippled phone.

    Oh well, when I get my next Verizon Edge phone, maybe it'll have Glance. The Icon will be wonderful for the next 6 months to a year til I feel like upgrading. :-D

    Same here, it was a nice feature on my 928 and used it constantly. But after I got my Icon I missed it for about 1 or two days, now I don't miss it at all. I'd rather have a 1080p phone with no glance. Plus I use awesome lock for my lock screen and it's not soooo bad to have to press a button.

    No, of course it won't. Glance is a Nokia feature.
