    Right now the 8.1 is only available for those that register for the preview... The rest of the world will have to wait until early 2015.. Well you will unless you register and download :)

    thanks! I hope this year microsoft/ nokia will update all their phone to windows 8.1. I don't want to face any bug or glitches that's why i don't want to update my phone using preview developers :)

    Just to share my experience... The total install took 1h.30m (There was a 8.0 mandatory download, then a pre-install download and finally the actual installing plus the migrating) all of this happened in short bursts of 30 minutes or less so I wasn't worried.. After the install I had to fish around in my setting (Region + Language) just to get Cortana :P but all of it was worth it :) If you read around the forum you'll see that the results are mixed! Some had success others failure while some have had only partial success.. Mostly the htc guys complain lol..
    In my case everything works except for the music identifier built in to cortana :/ I figure a hard reset would help, but since I don't want to lose my game data I'll just wait until the devs of my game allow cloud based back-ups and then hit the hard reset.. Installing 8.1 has it's risks, but I was confident seeing as I received the GDR3 without any glitches

    Just my experience :)

    Thanks a lot! But I think I will stick to lumia black for now. Once nokia /microsoft will release their official 8.1 update that`s the time I will update my phone...... 8.1 I'm waiting ;)

    This echos my experience with the update on my 822 as well. Took a while, but the phone is working great except for a *slight* increase in battery drain. Small, but detectable. I'm not using Cortana at this point and probably won't. I think a hard reset wouldn't hurt, but I don't see the need as of yet. I'm liking 8.1 so far.

    Yea 8.1 is running well on my phone :) and for some reason a lot of the 925 users have reported better battery life :/ I like cortana, but she's still in beta so there are some things i'm missing, but I'll just wait for the final build before I complain lol

    I guess microsoft has stopped the 8.1 preview for developers update
