Lumia Denim was announced back in September and we didn't expect it to reach Europe until 2015. Microsoft announced that they would start rolling out Lumia Denim earlier this week, namely on the 17th. The reason we didn't expect the update to roll out this year is because of what UK based company O2 had said. O2 said that the update will not arrive by New Year and it will roll out early in January 2015.
Well as we can see their estimated time frame was wrong, as Lumia Denim updates are being released in selected markets of Europe and India as well. In India the Lumia 520 as well as the Lumia 525 has recieved the update.
Around 30 countries in Europe can expect one of the Lumia series model to get the update. By rolling out the updates, Microsoft has made things official, but they also said that the broader rollout oft he updates will start in early January. So either way from now on you will have to wait atmost a couple of weeks to see Lumia Denim on your phone.
Some of the much awaited enhancements of Lumia Denim are:
1.Cortana: Updated in the US; Beta in the UK and China; Alpha in Australia, Canada and India.
2.Folders on the Start screen.
3.Apps Corner mode - very similar to Kid's mode - a separate and secure Start screen with customized access.
4.SMS merge and forwarding.
6.Faster Internet Explorer.
