    Did MS actually ever say the developer preview would be released on 4/2???? I thought that date was just a guess/assumption?

    Come on guys. Three things come together here: Microsoft, Windows Phone, Updates.

    How could you expect to get it so early? We never got an update early, I'm glad if we get a real update at all after all this time ;-)

    I decided a few days ago to start exclusively using my backup iPhone 4 in the week leading up to Build so that WP 8.1 would feel completely new and fresh to me. Guess I'll be on my iPhone a little bit longer than I had anticipated..

    I've been telling everyone about the WP developer preview and 8.1. If there is one thing I can depend Microsoft on, it's their ability to find awesome ways to disappoint me. :( I hope this doesn't mean a huge delay. For our sakes. This wait since mid Jan or so when we first heard about the leaks has been painful.
    I can relate. People will now hate me

    If they release it before the 10th, I can live with that, however after the 10th I will start to get withdrawal symptoms and by the 20th I will probably be dead from scratching my neck to shreds

    Lol, the drama on this thread is better than Days of our lives.

    It's actually taking MS a long time to get their **** together with WP. This update was supposed to be released last year...then Q1 this year...then Q2 but it hasn't even RTM'ed.

    lol, there are more important things in the world you can scratch your neck to shreds about! ;)
    IT'S JUST AN UPDATE, GUYS. Just a bunch of data.. Nothing more. I'm sure we are able to await this.

    Funny thing is my dad switched to android because he didn't have a file manager so he could download videos and watch them later. I told him his phone would get the update on the 2nd. Now when I tell him he's gonna be all 'Typical Microsoft'. I'm just gonna act like I didn't know anything about it and he might not notice since he's on his new phone. *shrug*

    I refuse to believe that Microsoft can keep dropping the ball with the Windows Phone platform. Sad day if this is true.
    lol, dropping the ball?

    I like how people are freaking out like this really means anything in the big picture. A handful of people won't be able to early adopt, big deal. Apple and Google typically don't even same day release updates when they announce them.

    Really don't care its a delay but Microsoft really can't afford to fall any farther back than they already are. 8.1 is bring features that we should have had last year. I'm not a big iPhone fan but that 64 bit chip and finger print scanner was a nice touch and is pushing the OS foward. What are we waiting for a notification center. Microsoft needs to bring it fast and hard that's how you get out of 3rd place. The way they going blackberry will be back in 3rd. Lol that was a joke.

    Ok, that's true. It's the really first big update to WP8 since the start..

    Nobody knows if it really doesn't come on the 2nd. So let's wait and see what happens. And even if not, I'm sure it comes some days later. (not weeks :D )

    Daniel Rubino is awfully quiet after this tweet. -Need to know more!

    But he said the delay info is coming from him. Like he is the source. That isn't how Rubino does things...normally. But he will get a joke going..
    He said he was the source to protect the identity of the source.

    I got a new theory, it's delayed after 18th of April since that is when the Samsung ATIV SE comes out. They probably want to give it the premiere.

    Why should they give Samsung the premiere?? I mean, it's Samsung...

    Also, if the SE comes out this day, why shouldn't Microsoft just release 8.1 to everybody and just skip the preview thing?

    Isn't the Samsung ATIV SE a WP8.1 device? Wouldn't that mean WP8.1 would have to be RTM at April 18th?.....................

    That's what I mean!
    But it could also be the case that they just announce it on that day and release it later..

    Dropping the ball because most of these features should have been included at launch, only to have them put off because they ran out of time. Then they say they'll be doing 1 Year updates and including the features they stripped out, only for them to completely miss that one year window and now they're pushing it off again. Seems like Microsoft's mobile department still doesn't have its act together and I'm not quite sure they'll ever compete with Google or Apple unless they start getting it together.
