Hey,
Have you read about the private 8.1 SDK beta that started? The screenshots look legit, and the verge confirmed this too: http://www.reddit.com/r/windowsphone...cript_support/
Especially the SD card option is interesting, and the ability to prevent SD card installs in the manifest sounds like a great idea to me (it makes modifying apps a lot harder, since you'd need an unlock to get any files). what do you think?

This

April 2nd can't come soon enough.

I hope there is a way it would be leaked to the public, so we could download this...

Apps in SD means 16+64GB for my ativ S.

So just get the Preview for Developers app from Microsoft and install the MS bits. No need to wait for the firmware update from the OEM... I'll receive WP8.1 as soon as Microsoft releases it, without even waiting for my OEM, much less my MO, to approve it.

I love all of the changes implemented in WP8.1, but I'm not going to do the developers preview unfortunately. I'd rather wait until all the bugs are ironed out.















People seem to be complaining about the skinned live tiles being a customization option. While it may take away from the uniqueness of live tiles' designs from each other, depending on the background chosen, it may look pretty sweet. Although, I'd love to have an option for an actual background instead.

It was said all over the internet that developer preview is expected to launch at this year's BUILD event, which will take place on April 2nd.
