What are the updates associated with 8.1? I'm not familiar. I was hoping the article would be more descriptive or link to a checklist of the highlights.

Ah Cortana. Yes, I hope it elevates electronic personal assistants.

Plus, Improvements with the UI such as transparent live tiles, the Action Center, word flow typing (it broke the texting record holder by the Samsung galaxy s4).

improved battery saver features and more access to the API for porting windows 8 apps and the phone.

Not my Lumia 920??? Well, I did the preview thing anyway, screw slow AT&T. Action center is pretty much the best improvement of me. Cortana is great, but, usually I got too lazy and type the search anyway, not like I can pronounce some of those words anyway.
