    My guess going to be tomorrow (Thursday 9/4) or next Thursday. It seems most WPCentral 8.1 announcements fall on a Thursday.

    I stopped by the local Verizon just to see what is new. While there, I played with the HTC One (W8). It had WP8.1 sans Cyan of course. But the interesting part I noticed was that when I brought up Cortana it still showed it was in beta. Otherwise, it was a pretty nice phone. Just not nice enough for me to dump my Icon.

    Also, I talked to a VZW rep while there and of course he didn't know anything about when WP8.1 is going to be pushed out. He tried to down play Windows Phone in general and that's when I politely shut him down.

    P.S. Are we there yet?

    I don't understand the attitude, is it profit margin? Wouldn't they be happy with any sale of any phone?

    Hopefully the update comes soon. 928 has a new firmware update on Navifirm that showed up today, will post a screenshot when I get home.

    Edit: Here are the screenshots from Navifirm+. Looks like the 822 is also getting the update soon. Hopefully only a matter of time.

    Could it be possible that Verizon is holding on to cyan and will wait to release Lumia denim???

    LOL !!! I actually spit up coffee when I read that.

    Do you actually think Verizon would release both of them in one shot, never mind "denim" is not scheduled till Q4 (fall/winter)?? We will be lucky to have Cyan this month (as we are all crossing our fingers) and as for "denim" scheduled for Q4, with the delay from Verizon, I would not get your hopes up till Q1 or Q2 of 2015....

    But, DAM, I hope I am wrong but, history shows the odds of this is true... Let's hope the Dev preview actually works 100% with out needing Verizon to do anything (battery life, camera, etc) for Denim...

    Very cool features, I think, I am actually wanting for Denim more than Cyan (as I already have 8.1.1 features)....

    It's possible... But more likely that we'll get Cyan/8.1 this month and Denim/8.1 GDR 1 in October/November.

    Remember that it's not just Cyan that we're waiting on, all of Verizon's Lumia's are currently waiting on WP8.1. Which is a HUGE update. GDR 1 is a very small update by comparison.

    I would certainly hope not. With my past experience with a Galaxy S3 on Verizon, they are just plain laggard when it comes to pushing updates to phones period. They are far too busy making sure that all of their crapware works with the new operating system/firmware.

    This is what I'm thinking. Looks like denim will be final within a month since these new phones are shipping with it. I think at this point I'd rather this be the case, given that at the current rate we wouldn't see denim until like, spring next year.

    As I agree with you, I just hope we get a fully working Dev preview LONG before that...

    Really hate Verizon sometimes...like anything to do with phone updates....and this has been the same from my Moto v710 flip phone....

    This is the first time I've been really frustrated with Verizon updates. I had the Trophy, 928, and now Icon and previously the updates were all fairly quick to come. Sometimes even the fastest.

    At this point we are very close to October, they could rather launch denim + cyan during Q4.
    At t didn't launch amber, they went straight to black, Verizon could be doing the same thing with cyan and denim

    I hope not. No reason not to release Cyan right now and Denim later. It's not like it takes more work for two releases than one, since presumably they have ALREADY put in the time and effort for Cyan release. And more importantly, the Windows Phone 8.1 release! The Nokia Lumia Icon, 928, Samsung Ativ SE are all waiting to officially get 8.1. Holding out on the firmware and delaying this even more would just be plain lazy.

    Whoa, let's not give Verizon more credit than they deserve. They won't even realize there is a Denim update until it's released from Microsoft. lol

    I just wish they would announce that instead of ******* everyone off who is waiting for Cyan. At this point if we have to wait till next month and it DOES NOT come with denim.....I think I would be even more ticked off...

    It would be nice so we are not waiting for another update but, who knows at this point.....

    Wait a second, did I miss it? Did it say ANYWHERE is was still in beta ? In fact they are releasing phones with the feature on them.

    Odds are that it's been released to carriers, possibly a while ago, if phones are showing up with the update now. Shocked that no one knew about features or that it was even coming till today. (rumor of a update but, nothing solid)

    Maybe that is what the hold up on Verizon is.....Maybe...nah, this is Verizon we are talking about....

    Paul Thurrott was briefed on all this stuff last week, and the way he writes about the Denim update makes it sound like it will be coming to the Icon in the next month or so. It definitely sounds like the current flagships will receive it in a separate wave, before the rest of the Lumia lineup. Either way, it sounds like it's planned to launch too soon for there to be a Cyan update in between.

    Lumia Denim (and the Lumia Camera app) will ship with the new phones of course. But then it will head out to the Lumia 930, Icon, and 1520 via over-the-air updates. (The Lumia Camera app will head out to the 830 at this time as well.) Then, Denim will be rolled out to all existing Windows Phone 8.x handsets, following the usual baloney carrier testing waiting period. Think very late 2014 and early 2015.

    A simple public statement of intention from Verizon re: cyan, denim, & 8.1, would that be too much to ask?

    Exactly...The lack of communication is the biggest issue. Verizon red tape...
