Nokia Amber update coming in late August, early September (GSMArena.com)
We know everything about the Nokia Corporation (ADR) (NYSE:NOK) Amber update, except for the launch date.

Now Nokia PR at the Lumia 925 launch in Taiwan says late August, early September is the target. That’s good news, but unfortunately there’s some bad news too – apparently, Nokia Corporation (ADR) (NYSE:NOK) will prioritize the Lumia 920 update, which potentially means lower profile devices will have to wait. That wouldn’t be ideal, considering the humble Lumia 520 has exploded in popularity.
