    Official release won't be coming out that soon.

    Since most WPs are Nokia and MS is about to buy the cell phone business, you won't see a delay from the manufacturer side. As far as carriers, I don't really think they care one way or another (at least in the US)
    Ok, I gave in, it was too easy not to do it, it's just finished updating and it only took about 35 minutes. At least I've put my developer account to some use, it's been sitting dormant for some time. Loving the rotation lock, can now read in bed. I also love the fact that you can lock it in either mode and left or right side - brilliant. Now to set some new tones!

    Updated my O2 Lumia 720 Amber last night to Gdr3 no issues, all data, screen layout and apps left untouched, the new Bluetooth drive option is fantastic and works a charm, the phone even speaks when a set device is detected telling you the setting is now active, excellent update all round

    Am I the only person left on earth who hadn't upgraded to GDR3? LOL.

    Really see no point in doing so, since I won't use any of the features anyway! Yeah, not even rotation lock or closing apps in multitasking.

    GDR3 is significantly smoother and snappier than GDR2, especially in games.

    Go for it ;)

    I only updated because of the multitasking. They really should have went with the swipe to close. :/

    There aren't custom tones for individual third party apps yet. The big change with tones is being able to have different tones for each contact.

    Installed on my 928. Seems quicker, love the ability to close apps from multitasking screen. Lost sound in games and videos, unless I plug a headset in and then unplug it, in which case it works again until I switch screens. Ringer and alarm still work fine. All in all I think it'll be a welcome and beneficial update!

    I too have noticed that games are smoother. Modern Combat 4 works a little better now, and isn't as frustrating to play. N.O.V.A. 3 is still terrible, but that's because it's a bad/lazy port on Gameloft's part. The entire OS in general definitely feels a lot smoother. It's like Christmas for us AT&T 920 users because we JUST got Amber and now GDR3 lol (preview anyway)

    Two observations :
    1. In Phone Update : " Tell me when updates are available on my phone "....is now missing .
    Anybody else have observed this.
    Replaced by PREVIEW for Developers (which you had to d/l to get this)

    I've gotten used to using the back button or my battery life would deter from the running apps that this feature is irrelevant to me !!!

    I knew I wouldn't be able to hold on for long.
    Just updated my L920. I really needed the different tunes. Been waiting for that since Nokia released their first WP and it didn't had that on board. Rotation lock is also quite useful.
    The multitasking close of apps...honestly, I don't use it that much. I don't use to have many apps open at the same time.

    I just hope this new program means that they'll release more frequent updates to the OS. They should take the chance to do that.

    I'm asking after searching (in this thread) unsuccessfully for "crash", "instability" and "unstable":
    Did anyone find this preview unstable or buggy or anything that wouldn't suggest an inexperienced consumer user using it?
    If so, can you provide details?
    Thanks!

    Battery life seems improved, even more so than with GDR2. Granted I haven't used my phone all that much today, but to still have 80% remaining after 9hrs is pretty impressive. Bluetooth and WiFi enabled all day too.

    Pardon me if this has already been asked and answered, here or elsewhere (I have searched in vain wpcentral threads/forums, news article and even official wp blogs/news releases)...
    Anyway, does anyone know the file size of the GDR3 update itself and the additional sizes(assuming much smaller) WP App Studio size and the WP Developer SDK....so as to make sure there's enough space for all this to d/l.
    Thanks in advance
