Nokia Amber update hitting WP8 devices in August According to the official Twitter account of Nokia Spain, the much-anticipated "Amber" update for Lumia devices is planned for August.
The tweet (below) translated, says: "The Amber update for the Nokia Lumia WP8 series will arrive in August, giving users the same experience as that of the #Lumia925."

Nokia's Lumia 925, which launched earlier this month, is the company's new flagship device for Windows Phone.

As part of the update, Nokia will add "Glance Screen" to all Windows Phone 8 devices, which shows the clock, battery life and ringer volume all while the device is on standby (as pictured). When in Glance Screen, you can double tap the screen to unlock it.

Additionally, the Smart Camera app will now be added to all WP8 Lumias.
