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?
