standard Lumia Denim Available for More Devices; “Wider Roll-Out Starting This Month”

Lumia DenimEarlier today Microsoft pulled the switch on Lumia Denim, making it available in more regions and areas; stating:

While we’re on the subject of Lumia Denim, you will no doubt be pleased to hear that the roll-out began as of 6pm GMT yesterday.

Features such as Cortana, Live Folders, a Glance Screen update, improved IE and Consumer VPN should all be with you soon.

Owners of the Lumia Icon, 1520, 930 and 830 will also be receiving a Lumia camera update with innovations such as Moment and Rich capture.

Lumia Denim will roll-out in addition to the Windows Phone 8.1 Update 1, which brings live folders and improved browsing performances. However since the latest surge of Denim updates doesn’t include the UK country variant (for my 930) among other various regions we contacted Microsoft asking when we can expect a wider release of the software:

Currently it’s rolling out on limited number of devices in selected regions. A wider rollout of Lumia Denim to all Lumia smartphones running Windows Phone 8.1 is expected to begin this month following partner testing and approvals.

Hopefully that means that most of us will have Denim running on our devices by the 21st, before Microsoft’s Windows 10 event.
