    I'm surprised so much is going into this release. It looks like the big one everyone is waiting for.

    It's still early enough for some things to be cut.

    Or maybe not. If the 822 and 810 don't get black, will they get 8.1? The trail of broken promises begins....http://forums.windowscentral.com/nok...mia-black.html
    those are firmware updates , you can get developer preview and install wp8.1 in April ;)

    So far with all the leaks I am very very impressed I just hope it does not get to the fragmentation level of Android. Microsoft is pushing the sub $100 no contract phones, I have a 520 and I hope it gets the update. Not only not fragmenting but not taking forever to put the updates out. My 520 still hasn't gotten the black update.

    I don't want to change menu at all, I just want better view of menu items, not to scroll so much. I want nicer icons, thats it.

    how come you have to scroll a lot when you just tap the letter and the alphabet grid is revealed? Tapping a letter in the grid takes you to all apps starting with that letter. I find the amount of scrolling is thereby minimized.



    I find the single column allows the entire app name to be shown.

    Any word on a built in timer/stopwatch? This has been my #1 gripe with WP since November 2010 :(

    what is so wrong with a simple app? Even if it came as part of the operating system, the implementation would be similar and the tap count would be no less. Feels like a 21st century problem.

    too bad they're removing social networking integration from the hubs. :(
    At least we'd have something they dont. And it was useful, of course.

    My phone has the GDR3 Preview for Developers and yet, my Lumia 620 hasn't got the official update along with Nokia Lumia Black. Putting that away, I saw this Windows Phone 8.1 to hit devices only between June to August, but “Developer” Preview will be available earlier | WMPoweruser then, I knew I had to get the Windows Phone 8.1 Developers Preview by early April because I can't wait for another two to four months.

    Sounds great. I'm just hoping that HTC will push it to the 8S as well and not just the reported 8X.

    If any phone needs 8.1 its the 8S.

    Why is MS removing the integrated social hub??!I don't want apps to integrate into my OS. If I wanted that, I'd get an Android device. Its like MSFT is listening and not listening at the same time, wow MS, just wow

    Still loving 8.1 though :D

    The hubs provided less-than-basic functionality. You couldn't like or tag people in comments. You couldn't quote a retweet. Etc. I guess that's why they removed it.
    And what do you mean by "Apps integrating into OS"? Didn't quite get you.

    Haven't seen anything on adding attachments to emails (ie replying to an email and adding an office file, picture, etc)

    I will not accept the current method of attaching items to emails in WP8.1

    I also got a problem with my 920's camera, the low light PureView mode is not working anymore, previously when there was not much light, and i mean really not much, it captures the picture exactly like i see it. Now when i want to do the same the picture is just black ... This all started when the pro cam app was installed, and not solved yet, after few updated to the app and my second update on Windows Phone :) GDR3 for developers first, and then Black :)

    8.1 has a file picker. Can be used to upload files to IE and email. that was one of the major SDK leaks.
    What are you saying?

    I had a few questions, not sure if they've already been asked and answered, but anyways:

    When I press the Back button in 8.1, it has been said that the apps will not be closed, but "suspended". Is that the "multitasking view" that also has been mentioned? I basically press back in the app and I see everything I have open and can switch to another app or swipe to close?

    What about the notification for a charger that isn't adequate? Does that mean the phone will let you know that charger needs to have a higher charge output to work with your phone? Buy/find a better one?

    Any revamping of the dialing a number/talking screen, concerning the UI?

    Are Battery, Data, and WiFi Sense coming with the update or dictated by the carrier. And for the case of AT&T, will Data Sense now be included since we didn't get it in previous updates?

    Since once included system apps like Music + Video are being broken up into XBOX Music and XBOX Video, respectively, will other apps be separated to allow for easier updating i.e. Internet Explorer, Store, Photos, etc.?

    Thanks guys, really excited about all that's been developing and leaked.
