If you happen to be rocking to either a Nokia Lumia 822 or a Nokia Lumia 928 with Verizon, then you would most probably be pleased as punch to hear that the mobile carrier intends to roll out the Windows Phone 8.1 Update 1, where it will be complete alongside Lumia Denim, to both of the above mentioned handsets. The updates will throw in the likes of Cortana, which is Windows Phone’s digital assistant that has racked up quite impressive reviews, in addition to the ability to choose a background image for your Start screen, added support for two or three columns of Live Tiles, a Word Flow keyboard, Action Center notification panel, and updates to the Nokia Camera app among others.
Needless to say, you can more or less call these to be major updates where the Nokia Lumia 822 and Lumia 928 are concerned. I would not be surprised to hear that owners of these Verizon Lumias would claim that these will feel like entirely new smartphones after installation of the updates, and if you happen to be in such a position, then you might want to head into Settings > Phone Update.
Apart from that, we have also learned from Microsoft that Verizon intends to introduce updates for both the venerable HTC Windows Phone 8X and Samsung ATIV SE to Windows Phone 8.1 in due time. [Press Release]
