Joe Belfiore: Windows Phone 8.1 developer preview is coming next week26
Today, Joe Belfiore took to Twitter again to let users know that the WP 8.1 developer preview is coming “early next week.” This probably means that the rumored April 14 launch date is accurate after all. So, anyone having a Windows Phone 8 handset will likely be able to update it to WP 8.1 come Monday, or Tuesday. Although this release will be aimed at developers, it can be downloaded and installed by all users.
Those not willing to try the developer preview should know that, according to Microsoft, the final and stable Windows Phone 8.1 update will be available “in the coming months” to all current Windows Phone 8 handsets.
