They void the warranty on their phone, but as far as I am aware they will be able to update once 8.1 is officially released.

Nokia will release an official ota Cyan update for 8.1 windows maybe end of june. 50% have already downloaded it already voiding there right to update officially. Lets see the end result of careless customers.

I think it is funny that people think that the 8.1 Developer Preview is the official update. It is called a preview for a reason. Great phone, no regrets purchasing it.

So by upgrading you run the risk of not receiving updates from Nokia. With that in mind many would agree to take the risk and not worry about warranty or what Nokia thinks of you. As for battery life... Well all I can say is battery life on my 1520 had been improved it could easily last for 1.5 days where as before it would last for a day. Recently I had the privilege of buying the 1020. I upgraded that to 8.1 and again I can say the update is brilliant and the battery life is just superb. Whether that's due to the update well I'll never know. Ultimately upgrading to 8.1 is a risk you take but that's the decision you make. It's your phone so you decide.
It was the biggest mistake that ive done in my life.
why did I even think of byuing nokia. I just got flattered over the looks and size of the phone. This phone has normal features a black and white could have it too. And moreover WhatsApp has been removed from the store and the one I was using got crashed. What more heartbreak a smartphone user can get. It was not expected I raises bare for nokia in my friend circle but now im humiliated.

This is Microsoft release, Nokia has to add its perks to make it official. Upon Nokia update release wud u be able to upgrade? Just compare Lumia 630 released its hell of difference. Its ur concern ad u risked it.

I certainly have no regrets. 8.1 developers version is buttery smooth and although it's only beta stage it's very stable and I am yet to find a problem. Reading from others who have also upgraded I see no one else having regrets. So I can't work out how you have come to that conclusion!
With Immediate Effect Nokia will cease to exist, And Microsoft Mobiles will be Talk of Town.
Users who have upgraded to 8.1 on developers version are complaining,could not wait for Final Nokia OTA notification from a trouble free 8.1 windows.Who have already done with be also able to update or stay as so!
