But the update is not for the 822.

Honestabebread posted on the front page story the other day that his manager said that the VZW update was imminent.

This is true, however Microsoft is still going to test it in smaller batches first, as they did with NoDo and later Mango on WP7. If you remember, NoDo was pretty slow to roll out, Mango was quite a bit faster. They had to perfect the process. This is their first OTA update ever. There will be bugs, and they'll want them to be in as small a test group as possible to start (there were bricked phones in both NoDo and Mango, but those decreased).

I doubt it'll take a couple weeks. That puts us into next year. It could happen, but I still expect it will be this month, and given the release tomorrow for ATT phones, I'm going to guess (yes, just a guess) that it'll be within the next week.

But there are some hardware and software specs to deal with. Remember that the manufacturers, especially Nokia, get to create first party software that gives them greater OS access and can actually change a few little things that can impact any update. The carriers also have a bit of that ability as well.
Windows Phone is supposed to be the happy medium between full carrier control (pretty much) in Android and full Apple control in iOS. MS is building relationships with the carriers and the OEMs. They are also developing updates and deploying them in ways that are designed to keep all parties (including customers) fairly happy. It is an evolving process because it is different from what has gone before.
The VZW update is coming, but should go to the 8X first. Nokia has more things that need to be tinkered with apparently. But MS appears to be rolling out the smaller customer bases first and using them as guinea pigs. T-Mobile 8X's are next. My guess is we'll see the 822 and all the WP8 devices updated within the next 2-3 weeks. That's a pretty quick rollout for the first update, if you think about it.

If anyone have a WHITE Nokia Lumia 822, post the screenshot of the about screen showing the OS version. Looking at Nokia's server, the white Nokia Lumia 822 may have shipped with Portico installed.
Be sure to also checked to see if you have "Keep WiFi on when screen times out" option. It's under "advanced" in WiFi settings.
