Nokia Amber update previewed on Lumia 920, said to be nearing release
The Nokia Amber update for Lumia hardware is already loaded on new Lumia 925 and Lumia 1020 units. The update is expected to hit other Lumia Windows Phones soon, but before then we've been teased at a pre-release build running on a Lumia 920. If you're out the loop and are still eagerly awaiting to have the update installed on your Nokia Windows Phone, be sure to head on past the break to check out what's new.
We've previously looked at what's coming in the Amber update for Lumia smartphones, but here's the quick walk through of the Amber update on a Lumia 920:
We're looking at glance screen settings, always-on clock, double-tap to wake, Smart Camera, Data Sense, FM Radio and Lotus Notes Traveller account support. Unleash the Phones notes that they're using a near-final build and we can all expect to see the Amber update roll out within the next few weeks.

Seems it's in the hands of the carriers now at least.
"prostituta"= prostitute. Bing translator doesn't know what Lumia is either
1. My capacitive buttons don't always stay lit when it should. Many times, I press them and they are still unlit.
2. Over 7 GB of "other storage" . Can't seem to get rid of that. I only have last month of email from one account synced. 10 music albums, 1 movie, about 200 pictures. No video or audio podcasts. No downloaded YouTube videos. Makes no sense to me.
3. I sync this with an iMac. The hi red pics go into iphoto, but when I sync the event back to the phone, only the low red pics show up in the albums. My habit is to sync with iMac, then delete camera roll from phone, then sync the event. So after synching the event, I can't edit the hi res pics any more because I took them off the phone and they don't sync back. (this is just fyi). Maybe a windows phone connector app update will fix this. Other than that, I am very happy with this phone and the features of amber. Especially the peek feature in glance and double tap to wake. (less wear and tear for the power button)
2. This sucks.
3. Putting hi res photos on your phone scales them down I believe.
Ah lets not forget the "all-mighty" carriers that always get a final say over this for no logical reason whatsoever. So...September. Maybe. If everything goes well.
But yes August is not the true arrival for for some of us
We're all out of patience and are eagerly waiting for it, but these are first world problems, so calm your titeejs.
Its slightly annoying that I still need to whip out the iPad or what have you just to be able to sync my device :(
Where is Nokia Pro Cam?
Will be able for 920?
