WP8.1-based Nokia Cyan update rollout begins

Windows Phone logoWindows Phone 8.1 is a major update and one we found to make a big difference to user experience. Couple it with Nokia’s large set of home-baked goodies and you get a software boost that can markedly improve your relationship with your phone.

The great news is that the rollout has finally begun. The first smartphone to get the upgrade is the Nokia Lumia 625, which is a change of pattern for the manufacturer – traditionally it was high-end smartphones that got the updates first.

WP8.1-based Nokia Cyan update rollout begins

It appears that the update is rolling out in stages and right now selected users in Taiwan, Spain and Finland are getting it as a part of some sort of pilot program. If they don’t face any issues with the new firmware then we can expect their compatriots to join the fun, with global availability of the update to follow shortly after.

Here’s a breakdown of the new features brought by Windows Phone 8.1, which the Nokia Cyan extends with Creative Studio app, Bluetooth 4.0 LE support and ingrained display controls. There are even more updates, but those are hardware specific and won’t work on all devices.
