    So, when are we going to get 8.1 update? No official date?
    A few months for normal users, those with the dev preview sometime this month.

    I want to know more about the "single" app thing. Does this mean if I have Surface RT, Windows Phone and an xbox one, the same app can be run on it all with some modifications?

    About App2SD, I am happy to say that even with a standard SD card, the apps run smoothly and there is no noticeable latency when starting or running games/apps.

    With WP8.1 you CAN install apps to SD and move apps between the phone and SD.

    NO file explorer currently.
    Where did you get that information?

    They did announce that they will enable the stores so that you can buy an app on tablet or phone, and use it on the other, without repurchasing. Of course, this will be developer dependent, I'm sure.

    Right but isn't RT different in some respects code base wise? I know pro should have little issues, but curious about RT tablets as I am thinking of getting one.

    This is downright ridiculous. I don't know what they were thinking. And I am a WP fanboy.
    Not sure what you are hoping for. I have a Lumia 900, 920, 1020 and 1520 and I can tell you that specs are supremely overrated when it comes to windows phones. going from a snapdragon 800 on the icon to the 801 on the 930 would do nothing. Like, 99.9% of people wouldnt notice a single difference.

    No. The slide shown says Windows 8.1, the writer says Windows Phone. She didn't read her own photo.

    EDIT:
    Oops - it isn't her photo. Still, no, they said later this month in the keynote.

    They could have improved the camera further, or added some definitive feature to help it shine. But as it stands nothing in the phone is a stand out feature, and its all been done before. I suppose my main disappointment with it is the release date and I can't even wrap my head around that.

    What about the developer preview? Is Daniel's earlier report of April 10 still valid?

    Not really sure what you're saying. When the competition is adding plenty of great new features and you're just doing the same thing they did last year, that isn't enough to compete. Release date wise there's no reason for this to have been delayed given the fact that the Icon quite some time ago, aside from changing the bands internally nothing else changed.

    I'm simply saying that I know who's never built a phone before. If there was no reason, it would already be released.
