imageWOW.  If you’re a Verizon Nokia Icon user and been paying attention to the recent social chatter, the Windows Phone 8.1.1 + “Denim” firmware update was semi-announced/leaked as of last night.

Per Daniel Rubino of Windows Central:

HOLY… Lumia Icon + Denim update is ALMOST here. Verizon announced it. Likely due tomorrow. windowscentral.com/verizon-publis… pic.twitter.com/lV2KN0JnvL

Since I have the Windows Phone 8.1 Developer Preview installed, I’ve personally been getting ready to reset my phone and back it down to the old Windows Phone 8.0 to get the upgrade.

Lo and behold, today, Joe Belfiore tweeted:

“Hey #Icon users… thanks for being patient!  Denim is arriving today, but sit tight. You WON’T need to reset & use recovery tool to get it.”

Mind blown.  I did not expect to have a seamless upgrade from the WP8.1 Dev Preview to the production version from Verizon. 

Everything is awesome.  Can’t wait to upgrade to this… so many features that will be unlocked with this release, like Miracast wireless display “casting”.
