    Blog post regarding why high end devices were left out:

    "Some context on why we chose these and not higher end phones like the 930/Icon or 1520: We have a feature that will be coming soon called “partition stitching” which will allow us to adjust the OS partition dynamically to create room for the install process to be able to update the OS in-place. Until this comes in, we needed devices which were configured by mobile operators with sufficiently sized OS partitions to allow the in-place upgrade, and many of the bigger phones have very tight OS partitions."

    Well I guess as soon as I see somebody here confirm that the preview does indeed install on a AT&T L635 GoPhone, I'll be buying one at WalMart.

    Guess that explains why they specifically say "and Windows Phone 8.1 was already installed on the phone at the time of purchase" as a requirement for this build.

    Why, why, why......I'm so disappointed. If W10 runs on low-end lumias, why then not to be able to run on high-end devices. I think my lumia 1020 with it's 32 gb of storage and 2 GB of RAM is more than enough to be able to run it. Sometimes I think that the people in Microsoft have no idea what they are doing....

    Because they're busy implementing a feature that only high-end devices need to do an in-place install.

    So we've had the moaners (for not being on the list), now I'm waiting for the folks that are going to moan because their phones now don't work after the upgrade...

    Well the list of supported phones is different on the Croatian website.
    It says:
    - HTC 8X
    - HTC One M8
    - Nokia and Microsoft phones that have:
    * at least 8 GB of internal storage
    * One SIM card slot (dual sim phones not supported)

    Sorry, i am still a proud Windows Phone User. And i never moaned or had bad words about the process. But now, i am too at the Point where i can only say: I cant hear "soon" anymore. I CAN'T Believe why they havent first finished the Problem with this Partition stitching for the first wave. I am 100% sure that most of the real Windows Phone fans that will try this preview have the high-end phones like 1520 and 930. *sigh* i am also a big MS fan, but this combined with all the other things (doing more on Android and iOS) is really disappointing for a fan, and i could understand completely when some Folks are thinking of switching.

    Known issues


    Messaging is currently missing a number of features you might use in Windows Phone 8.1, including dual-SIM support, search, message drafts, sharing voice notes and ringtones, Bi-Di language support, international assisted dialing, spam filter, viewing all group recipients, reminders and quiet hours through Cortana, multiple attachments, and GSM support. If you use these features regularly, youll want to wait to install the preview until we get them into a future build.


    Cortana is only available in English (United States) for phones. In other locales, youll get the standard search experience.


    The Rooms feature is not available in the preview. Youll still be able to get to your photo albums, calendars, and notes, either on the web or by using other apps on your phone. You wont be able to see your chat history or send or receive any new chats. If you have important info in your Rooms chats that you want to keep, save a copy to a different device before updating your phone to Technical Preview. For more info, take a look at the Rooms FAQ.


    Some text in the preview will not yet have been translated into all available languages and will only appear in English. This text will be translated into all available languages by the time the final product is available.


    The Phone app doesnt have Dual SIM support or spam filtering in the preview.


    Accessibility features are still being developed for Windows 10, so they arent fully functional in Technical Preview. If you depend on features like Narrator while browsing the web, you may want to wait to update your phone

    No excuse for them to tell high end owners before now that they'd have a longer wait. They knew they had more to do so why not say it? Why wait until release and say oops, sorry guys who've been waiting but we have extra work to do due to partitions?! Seriously, MS WP division sure finds ways to look dumb time after time
