Well, it looks like all of that speculation as well as alleged claims of picking up Windows Phone 8.1 for the AT&T-bound Lumia 1020 have turned out to be true after all, as AT&T has stepped forward with an official statement regarding the situation.

With Windows Phone 8.1 being released for the Nokia Lumia 1020, using the smartphone has gotten all the more easier, especially when it comes to making sure your favorite contacts and apps will remain right at your fingertips. Not only that, you can now also bring your collection of Xbox games, music and videos regardless of where you roam.

The unforgettable Cortana, too, will be part of the package, and she remains the only smartphone assistant who is able to set reminders by people, in addition to doing so based on time or location. How about a congratulatory message whenever an important client sends you an email?

AT&T recommends that your Lumia 1020’s battery remains at least 50% charged before installing the Windows Phone 8.1 update. Kicking off the download is a snap, just click the Settings Live Tile > followed by tapping Phone Update. You ought to be prompted to download the update, and after installation, restart your phone.
