Nokia announces global roll-out for Portico update to Nokia Lumia 820 and 920



It has been tough waiting in the RotW while USA and Canada have been having the new Windows Phone 8 update, which fixes a number of OS and device issues with the Nokia Lumia 820 and 920, roll out to their devices.

The good news however is that the update is finally being sent out to the rest of the world, according to Nokia Community Manager Micheals, who writes in the Nokia Forums:

Information for customers with Nokia Lumia 820 and 920

A Nokia Lumia Windows Phone 8 software update providing performance enhancements for the Nokia Lumia 820 and Nokia Lumia 920 has started rolling out over the air. Delivery will continue in a phased manner over the coming weeks and is expected to be complete by mid-March.

The update brings:

  • Text replies to incoming calls
  • Internet Explorer improvements

Unfortunately checking manually for the update does not result in any update popping up, but it is just good news knowing it is in fact on its way, if very slowly.
