Thank you. That's a shame; such a precious loss of screen real estate for something that can be easily revealed with a simple gesture as per the tablet version.

Then we might get completely new devices this Fall.

Believe! Really want some new hardware for this fall, will renew contract by then.

Great OT Brot! Love the Cortana animation.

Now I'm just waiting for my cyan update. Hopefully Verizon releases this quicker than they released GDR3.

Maybe in terms of rendering, which would surprise me, but I find the usability in IE11 to be terrible. The new memory and tab management causes to reload pages all the time. Wake up the phone and unlock it, page reloads. Go back to the previous page, page reloads the cached(!) version. It's really annoying.

When they rebranded it as the Lumia 930 for the rest of the world.

And so far as I know you can't easily change it.

Well the resolution is pretty low for such a screen size. And it's a really cheap screen, with bleeding and bad viewing angles. I still like it though, good phone for great value.

I have an 8X and my upgrade to the dev preview went fine. 8.1 still have issues as I run into more loading screens then I should and areas where scrolling is choppy. Battery life is kinda terrible as well.

If you use the Xbox Music app a lot then don't upgrade as the 8.1 version can best be described as "shit".

So I'm in the preview program and have been for a couple months in Canada, just waiting on Cortana which doesn't seem to available yet. I heard Cortana would be available in Canada when 8.1 is formally released, anyone in Canada able to get it yet?

No, your payments for apps and things will have to go out of the US store, and if you have any credit on your local store you won't be able to access it. You can change your region back for that kind of thing and nothing will be lost. Cortana will still have all your preferences and stuff when you go back to US region. I had to do it several times to use up a $20 promotional credit I had.

So, my upgrade is due first week in September. Do I plump on a 930, or wait for the 1525? Currently a Lumia 900 owner. UK-based.

On the topic of the address bar, I think that it's fine the way it is. It makes it much more beginner friendly when random things aren't just hiding themselves.

I have an 8X and I doubt it too. Probably a WP update as opposed to a OEM one based on the timing for all devices.

Searched 1525, seems it's a different beast than 1520:

If these are true, then better to wait. My mistake.
