Microsoft shares details on when Windows Phone 8.1 will roll out in India
Microsoft India has stated the timeframe for the roll out of Windows Phone 8.1... in India anyway. The company teased on Twitter that consumers residing in the region will receive the highly anticipated update in the first two weeks of July. There are no exact details as to when everyone will receive the download since it still depends on local carriers and whatnot, but at least there's a clear idea as to the timeframe.
This isn't to say the worldwide rollout of Windows Phone 8.1 will commence within the first two weeks of July, but it certainly fits in with what we're expecting, especially with the next major version kicking its support cycle off last week. Not to mention select markets already receiving the update as part of a pilot program, but we'll have to see as more markets are included.
We'll keep an eye out for more details as we approach July. What are you looking forward to most in Windows Phone 8.1?

Still waiting here in Germany...the core & heart of the EU...
And India is getting it prior to us...
Didn't thought of that. By the way, I did not want to offend any Indian by my comment.
I just wondered, because Germany & the EU are big markets.
I love India, sorry for that misunderstanding! I just can't wait to get it here in Germany! :)
..... Thread first virus for WP ... Try it I u want ...
Help me iam a noob XD
For those who are said that., Indians have to wait for long time to get the update should close their ass now...
Only thing is Higher version phones like 1520, 1020 will receive the update first and it ends with 520, 525 & so on...
* interactive tiles
*960x540 screen resolution
* integrated stylus support
* over lap functionality of apps, like fb chat heads and floating window features
* resizable keyboard (essential for phablet size devices) or perhaps support for third party keyboards
* universal apps
* LG and Sony devices
* more background themes apart from the current black and white
* more toggles in notification center
* more open file structure
* lock screen getting more options
I'm sorry but this user base is lacking in any form of humour. This wasn't the case when I first joined up because it was a fun place to hang out to chat about Windows Phone. However, it has recently become a hot bed of Windows Phone Fanboys and fanatics.
Where is your source? It is no use saying"I think".
What makes you think the 930 will get another update above and beyond all other Lumia phones?
Seriously, if people want to comment then by all means do so, buy only if you are equipped with the facts to do so. Otherwise don't bother, because you sound like a bunch of attention seekers.
do you accept my comment now ? or should i cry ?
and you do look now like attention wh*** seeker
I'm sorry, but reading about something is not the same as actually trying it out for yourself. Therefore you shouldn't remark on something you haven't experienced for yourself.
I have been using the preview for some months now and haven't seen any problems with battery drain, or at least anything out of the ordinary.
However, considering the preview had been available for months now, I can't see you bothering to try it out, now that it's official release is imminent.
Developer preview is just a sample version given by M.S When u get CYAN Update,
It'll Provide u Full Featured W.P 8.1
it'll Enhance ur CAMERA Features, and others like Lock Screen features, battery stability, & also this update helps us to get much awaited personal assistant CORTANA... As for the info available,
for INDIAN region CORTANA will be available by August or September... And in this CYAN UPDATE
NOKIA / M.S mainly concentrated on HIGHER END phones.. So wait for the much Awaited Updates
Jai Hind :D
Jite rahoo Nadela.
Usually takes two weeks of testing so people with a 925 should get theirs in the same timeframe.
I'm guessing that the other phones will follow later in the month.
Guess we should all be getting updated mid August at the latest.
Get your facts right.
And I'm not sure what you mean by "test bed"... "stable version" etc. You do realize WP 8.1 Developer Preview was meant for testing?
Hell why am I even explaining you -.-
Vote Ron Paul.
The n word.
And also expecting the release of Xbox music soon in India....
Cortana for India
Once the update is done... Change d region back to US for Cortana..
Cause Cortana won't be available in India before January '15
CORTANA for INDIAN & rest of world region ( except U.S ) is under work...
And the process may take some 2 to 3 months to get complete... So most probably M.S will update the rest of world phones ( 2 nd update ) by the end of August or September...
When is it coming ???????
