    It was a joke. Not true man. You got everybody going...even me. lol.

    They asked in the thread. Where is this coming from? That Rubino said, "me". And I can't really tell if that twitter is the real twitter Rubino.
    It is him. It is the Daniel Rubino we read daily.

    May be they want to release the new hardware what ever Nokia announces on 2nd prior to giving access to developer preview,i may be wrong but its my gut feeling because new hardware is specifically designed for Windows Phone 8.1 so, they want those devices to show off what WP8.1 is up to before any other device. Even I'll be disappointed for its delay but that's what it is going to happen, don't you?

    It will be interesting to see if Windows Phone brings anything that requires new hardware. There's nothing I know of, was something announced?

    I guess hardware specific features were not included in leaked SDK image because present set of phones can't use use them,im pretty sure there will be some hardware specific features,if not why bother with getting new hardware because Lumia icon and 1520 are damn good phone, don't you think ?

    Yes, they are faster, but there's nothing an older generation phone can't do in general.

    To correct myself, with announced I meant of course leaked. But I don't expect any big surprises, but maybe I'm wrong. I hope so.

    The actual Preview SDK lacked many many features, even API wise. Hardware specific features? This could be. Stylus support maybe? We'll see.

    Even i hope so but they should bring new hardware specific features because its new hardware that attracts someone to any ecosystem then the software and services which make them stick to it, lets us go back to Lumia 920 it is applauded by everyone because of great hardware, I think they will surprise us with some hardware specific features. Let's wait until Build.

    Yeah stylus support would be great, if it is true i may a get a companion device to go along with my SP2, crazy time to be waiting for something.

    Lol this thread... You guys need to STAHP. Think about this for a minute...

    Context clue 1) MS never stated they were going to release the preview..

    Context clue 2) This is Daniel. I have been around WPC for a long time now..it can be safely said that Dan is a fairly serious guy when it comes down to this stuff.

    Context clue 3)- and yet the most important...this is MS guys. With the Windows Mobile fiasco (not getting an upgrade from 6.5 - 7) and Windows Phone 7 fiasco (no upgrade 7-8) .... I've learned to stop being disappointed at everything MS does.

    I'm just riding the WP train, not knowing when it'll stop....if it ever does.

    So guys...this is not something significant enough to complain about....does it suck? Yes.

    Us "minority" enthusiasts won't get an update on the day its announced...so what.

    I don't know what but there's something fishy going on with Daniel. Why he's the only one to report this yet and that too in an unexpected tweet and not an article? And from his replies at the post, it looks like he's actually trying to hide the news source, himself trying to be the source. And for those who are saying its "NOT DELAYED BECAUSE IT WAS NOT ANNOUNCED OFFICIALLY IN THE FIRST PLACE" then why Daniel mentioned it "Delayed" as if it was actually remarked by MSFT. It must be admitted that it indeed is a big delay as it was expected last year. And now even bigger if it goes as said.
    Above all, I'm really sad because I'd made many of my friends buy Lumia devices and whenever they complained me about features, I reassured each of them by telling them to wait til 2nd April when WP8.1 Developer Preview would be out. I have no idea how I'll survive till the update... :(
    I feel you man. Experiencing the exact same situation here.

    Isn't Update 1 also being shown off at BUILD, but not coming out until April 9th? Maybe WP 8.1 will be the same way.

    To be honest, I think Daniel is f**king with us. He admits that he likes to so that.
    If you look at Daniel in the podcasts he seems like a guy very much in control. He doesn't laugh or smile at moments you would expect him to -when others make a joke. I think he is very skilled at hiding his smile when joking, and he enjoys fooling people with great passion.

    Also, he starts with "btw, some bad news...". Starting with btw sounds like coming up with a joke in my book. Or something that isn't really important. Sounds like utter teasing.

    Adding to all that, Mr. Rubino is awfully quiet after this tweet articlewise.

    Ridiculous. This update should have been out 6 months ago. WP continues to fall further and further behind, while MS can't seem to get it's house in order. No wonder devs keep avoiding the platform like the plague.
    MS changed the policy to give in major updates within 18 months, so its actually on schedule.
