    I'm waiting for the day they make it mandatory for phones to be on Cyan/Denim in order to get the next version of the DP...

    They sell more Lumias than any other Windows phone so...yeah that's a possibility. I can't connect my Fitbit Flex to my Icon until Verizon releases 8.1 Cyan because Fit bit made CYAN MANDATORY.

    Cyan or 8.1? Its not quite the same thing. 8.1 is the OS and includes cortana. Cyan includes things like mirrorcasting and bluetooth 4.0.

    Kasey is correct. BT 4.0 is necessary for our fitness accessories to connect to our phones. And there is likely more BT accessories we are missing out on due to the lack of Cyan.

    Well BT4.0 certainly makes sense. I could have seen it as either. I remember when WP Mango was required for certain apps because they used certain features exclusive to that OS. Using a hardware feature exclusive to a firmware also makes sense.

    BT4.0 works in 8.0 with Black, however once you update to 8.1 Microsoft has disabled it, likely due to some driver issues. I dont know if the Fitbit app works on 8.0, but if it does, you could always downgrade

    No, the FitBit app requires 8.1. Kind of a Catch 22 there. :)

    There are more features available in the DP that we get vs. what we don't get.

    Yeah, I've been pushing for Cyan so I can use my HRM. Now that the Band has this included, I'm wondering what else will Cyan bring, that I'm missing out on. Seems like I will be selling the monitor that I never used.

    Mirrorcasting. I just ordered a device for that on my new 1520.3. It was only about $50 and I intend to use it to show off the phone. I don't know if I'll use it personally or not. However full screen Plants Vs Zombies could be interesting.

    Miracast is great, but there is too much latency for games. Dont think you'll have a very good experience as there is usually a 1-2 second lag between phone screen and tv screen

    Should be fine for photos and that's the main reason I'm buying it anyway.
