    Could someone please mention the highlights? Will we be able to set default apps? Will apps finally have permission to save to video library? Will Facebook chat be stable? Please don't give me a link.

    That sounds great! I dunno why it's taking them so long though.

    most likely they have a lot of features to build in. also the Nokia acquisition caused some delay. though this will give them time to add more features and Iron out some bugs

    Yes, but it's coming out almost half a year after Windows 8.1 RT 8.1 I know there's probably a reason why, but it's just silly.

    There is nothing to try as such. Your other storage should clear to an extent as mentioned in the FAQs. It will never be 0. Because these are temp files that have to hang about for a while. I doubt anyone's other storage is EVER going to be in GBs after GDR3.

    do you think ms will add the ability to add a different theme color aside from black and white?:)

    There will always be temp files on any device you use. For example, on your windoes PC, go to search and type in %temp% and then hit enter, then press control and A at the same time to select everything, right click and go to properties and it will tell you how much storage that is taking up. (it is very safe to manually delete every file in there however)

    Dude, Last time I had to do a hard reset because other became 16gb and I already had gdr3 at that point, right now my other is at 6.9gb(gdr3+black) and it still grow a little sometimes, IT NEVER ACTUALLY DECREASES BY ITSELF, don't try to tell me that it's fixed because I have proof in my hand that it is not fixed

    And also I understand that it will never be at 0, I would totally not care if it stayed under 3gb... but it doesn't!

    If we get half that I'll be happy. I have a feeling something major to get WP8 in line with the other mobile operating systems, like separate volume controls, quick settings or notification center will be left off. I also wonder how Cortana will compare to Siri.

    We're expecting WP 8.1 to be announced and probably available for a preview version sometime in the first half of this year. I'd love to see it release in that time frame too.

    Have you tried to let it clear in background? If it won't decrease by itself, you may want to clear it? GDR2 onwards we have an option to clear this.

    If we don't get at least all of that I WON'T be happy. I am not thrilled about having to wait until it's finally available for download either. It took forever to get 'Amber'.

    not sure what you mean by this, do you mean deleting temporary files? Because that doesn't affect the other catagory

    On my 8X, I have 1.5gb temp files. I also have over 180apps/games. I sit with around 500mb to 1gb free. I also use the Storage Cleaner app a lot.
