Windows Phone 8.1 Developer Preview sees over 1 million downloads

43 sec read

Windows Phone 8.1 has yet to be officially released. What they have released so far is the Developer Preview, which as the name suggests, is open to developers. Apparently this has not stopped regular users from downloading the preview anyway, since there are ways to go about doing that, but exactly how anticipated was Windows Phone 8.1? Well according to the numbers, it has been estimated that there have been over 1 million Developer Previews installed since it was launched.

Just over one week ago, Microsoft released its Windows Phone 8.1 Preview for Developers, giving users everywhere the opportunity to get an early look at the platform update coming down by means of OTA updates in the weeks and months to come. We were quite excited to see the software arrive, and had been anxiously tracking progress towards its release; from what we saw in the comments, many of you Windows Phone users were similarly enthusiastic. But just how many Windows Phone fans went through the steps required to install the preview, whether they considered themselves capital-D developers or not? Some data gathered by ad networks suggests that this release was a decently sized success, with well over a million WP8 users installing WP8.1 on their phones.
