O2 begins rolling out Windows Phone 8.1 Update 1 to the Lumia 930

Developers have had their hands on Windows Phone 8.1 update 1 for a couple of months now, but it looks like UK carrier O2 is all set to roll the update out to its Windows Phone devices, starting with the Nokia Lumia 930.

The announcement was made by Chris_K on O2's support forums yesterday, where he said the following:

We're fully expecting the GDR1 update for the Lumia 930 to go live this week - as early as this evening, no less. Please keep your eyes out for any notifications and if you're running an O2 branded 930 purchased from O2 direct, feel free to manually check for updates too.

If you're looking for everything that Windows Phone 8.1 Update 1 is bringing, be sure to check out our full coverage.
