When Microsoft released Windows 10 Mobile yesterday, many were upset to see the list of devices that were supported. It was noticeably lacking devices with a Snapdragon S4 Plus, with 512 RAM, and the Nokia Lumia Icon.
We also learned today that there will be no second wave of upgrades, so this list of devices is the final collection of Lumia handsets that will get the update. Of course, third party devices could be upgraded at some point, but certainly no more Lumias, right?
Well, maybe not. As it turns out, the Nokia Lumia Icon is still in question. In response to an enquiry by ZDNet's Mary Jo Foley on Twitter, Microsoft's Gabe Aul offered a glimmer of hope to owners of that device:
This is good, but not entirely surprising news. The Nokia Lumia Icon, although being released months before as a Windows Phone 8 device, is the same as the Lumia 930, with the exception of its LTE bands and the lack of double tap to wake. Since the Lumia 930 was on the list, it was curious to see that the Icon wasn't, especially since the 930 seemed to be the one with problems on Windows 10.
